The Labradoodle is a unique and fascinating dog which was first bred in Australia in the 1970's. Labradoodles are a cross between the Standard Poodle and Labrador Retriever. The search for a low allergy Guide Dog led to the breeding of Labradoodles. The Labrador's easy going ways and the Poodle's smartness made for an interesting combination, and an exciting discovery was that a percentage of each litter had puppies which appeared to be allergy friendly. An added bonus for the Labradoodle was the lack of shedding in some of these puppies and the absence of a doggy smell. Later, the use of the Miniature Poodle was introduced, and today there are three sizes in the Labradoodle. The popularity of the labradoodle has led to a large number of people jumping on the "bandwagon" and attempting to do their own breeding – this practice is resulting in a dog of far lesser quality than most folks would want for a family companion. Inexperienced breeders do not realize that the vast majority of these first generation dogs will shed and still carry many of the other traits that are trying to be avoided in a good-quality Labradoodle. In addition, these inexperienced breeders usually do not take temperament or health testing into consideration. No matter where you get your "doodle", please be careful to assure yourself that you are indeed getting what you want in a dog.
