Also called Labrapoodle, the Labradoodle is the result of the cross between the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle. The term was also formed by contracting their respective names, the Poodle being called Poodle in English. A versatile dog, the Labradoodle inherits the qualities of both breeds. It is not recognized by the FCI, nor by the other major associations. There are 3 sizes of Labradoodles: miniature, medium and standard, with a weight that can range from 7 to 30 kilograms. These dogs are also classified according to their proximity to the original Labrador and Poodle. Thus, a Labradoodle F1 is the direct result of the reproduction of representatives of the 2 breeds. An F2 comes from the reproduction of 2 F1 dogs, and the F3 comes from the crossing of 2 F2 dogs.

History of the breed

The Labradoodle was born from the desire to create a guide dog with the temperament of the Labrador-Retriever and the hypoallergenic character of the Poodle.

The origins of the breed are located in Australia. In the mid-1970s, a blind Hawaiian woman contacted the Australian Guide Dog Association to request a guide dog that did not cause an allergic reaction. The organization did not have one, but had decided, therefore, to embark on this adventure. The Labrador Retriever had already proven itself as a guide dog for the blind. The Poodle was chosen for its very low hair loss and intelligence. For the first crossbreed, a white poodle from Sweden was used. This mission was entrusted to Wally Conren. The circle of breeders then gradually widened.

The Australian Labradoodle Association was established in 1998. The Labradoodle, however, is not yet recognized by major dog organizations, despite its popularity. Its American counterpart, the Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA), was founded 6 years later. In 2020, the ALAA identified a total of 88,000 Labradoodles dogs registered with the association.

Ease of grooming

Caring for the Labradoodle is not particularly complex. This dog, which sheds little hair, simply calls for basic care, such as weekly brushing. With the exception of Labradoodles whose hair is smooth and which shed more; these require more attention.

The main hygiene measure for a Labradoodle is to brush it once a week. If it is a smooth-haired dog, brushing should be more frequent: 2 to 3 times a week. In some cases, a visit to the groomer may be necessary every 6 to 8 weeks, especially for clipping and shaving between the pads.

The Labradoodle does not need frequent baths. On the other hand, it is important to regularly clean the inside of his floppy ears, to maintain his claws and to take care of his oral health. Weekly brushing of the dog’s teeth will ensure good oral hygiene, which will prevent tartar deposits and bad breath.
