A little about the Labradoodle - Breed traits

The Labradoodle is a cross between a Labrador and a Poodle, meaning they shed less hair and have less dander than their full Labrador ancestors. It makes them an ideal breed for people with allergies, as does their friendly, playful temperament. They are also known for their calm and affectionate demeanour. 






Labradoodles are a hybrid breed, making them hardier than some pure breeds. Nevertheless, they are susceptible to Canine Hip and Elbow Dysplasia, Progressive Retinal Atrophy and Von Willebrand's disease.
