Have you ever seen a labradoodle? They are a seriously awesome dog with an incredibly silly name. They are a blend between a labrador and a poodle, which obviously makes sense why they are called that. When I was growing up, my mother used to tell me about the time about her cocker-pooter or their cocker spaniel toy poodle mix. You can also get a labradoole mini which is a mix between a toy poodle and a labrador instead of the more well known mix between a standard poodle and a labrador. People started to breed them this way because they wanted to make great therapy and service dogs. With the loving temperament of a labrador and then the extreme intelligence of a poodle, you get the perfect blend of traits for a service dog or a dog that is wonderful for the family. The other great bonus is these dogs are allergen-free and hardly shed. Isn’t that amazing? Now if only they can do that for cats because I would really like to have a cat but I am totally allergic.
Australian labradodles are some of the most intuitive dogs out there as well which is why they make excellent therapy dogs. My sister in law has a labradoodle and her dog started to follow her around all the time one day when she was in the first trimester of her pregnancy. She even said it was getting kind of obnoxious. She was getting really protective and would even try to get into the shower and bath tub with her even though her dog hates to take baths. This went on for two days and at the end of the second day, she had a major stroke that almost claimed her life and the life of her unborn child. If it hadn’t been for her Australian labradoodle who went and woke up her husband who was already asleep then my sister in law nor my nephew would be here today.
When you are going to pick an Australian labradoodle breeder, be sure to find a business that will take great care of the animals leading up to the adoption. Breeding animals can have some health problems for animals and so it’s important for you to find a company who checks and double checks the health of their animals. Highlands Australian Cobberdogs AKA Labradoodles is this exact company. They even put on their website the health status of each of their animals down to their hips, their eyes, etc. It is very important to them that they are giving their animals the generosity they deserve in return for the generosity that they show us. Whoever decided it was a good idea to breed labradors and poodles have my blessing. My sister in law is in great health and so is my little nephew. They are both so important to us and their amazing labradoodle is still with us though she is an old lady now. She is so intuitive and wonderful and makes a great jungle gym for my nephew.
