Labradoodle grooming is a little more work than you would expect from a dog with a short coat. The Labradoodle has an undercoat that sheds and needs to be groomed or brushed out regularly.
The Labradoodle has an average shedding rate, so it isn’t considered a high-maintenance breed when it comes to grooming. However, because the breed is mixed, you’ll need to brush the dog twice a week — once per week if you live in an area with less humidity — to remove dead hair and prevent matting.
Labradoodles are generally easygoing dogs, so they don’t require intensive training sessions every day or rigorous exercises every few hours. Training should start as soon as possible and continue throughout the dog’s life so he can learn good manners, how to sit on command and how to walk on a leash without pulling.
The Labradoodle is a smart dog who learns quickly if you use positive reinforcement techniques such as treats or praise when teaching him something new. The Labradoodle may be easygoing but does not tolerate mistreatment well; he can become aggressive if he feels threatened by another animal or person.
