5 Labradoodle Secrets You Wish You Knew

Labradoodles are known for how active and playful they are. They are very good with children, and they are also very popular with young couples. Outside of these behavior patterns, there are quite a few less known things about the Labradoodles that usually go over people’s heads. Here are 5 of them:

1. Labrador Retriever + Standard Poodle = Labradoodle 

Although it is quite clearly in the name of the breed, a lot of people don’t know the fact that the Labradoodle is the result of those two other breeds. This was done in order to “create” a breed that can successfully guide a blind human through busy streets. This is where the Labradoodle’s charm comes from, it’s very calm and easy to train.

2. Hypoallergenic nature

Another reason why the Labradoodle’s popularity skyrocketed is because its fur is hypoallergenic, which means that people that are usually allergic at dog fur don’t get triggered by this dog’s fur. Not only that, but the Labradoodle has one of the most varied furs in the world. Literally every single Labradoodle has a unique pattern, a unique color, a unique feel to it.

3. More than one size 

A lot of people believe that Labradoodles are all the same, when they’re all completely unique one to another. Outside of the fur, which we mentioned before, the Labradoodles also vary in sizes. In fact, there’s three sizes, the standard, medium and miniature Labradoodle. The miniature measures around 14 inches while the standard one is 22 inches and the medium one can easily reach 14-30 inches.

4. They’re smart

Although they’re not some of the smartest dog breeds in the world, Labradoodles are still considered to be very smart. They are notorious for opening doors by themselves and unlatching gates whenever they want.

5. Keen tracking abilities 

Labradoodles are actually quite good at tracking people or certain objects. Labradoodles are some of the only dog breeds that can memorize a road and follow the pattern back into their owner’s welcoming arms. They are truly outstanding dogs.
