Labradoodles are a cross between a Labrador retriever and a poodle. They are intelligent, affectionate and loyal dogs who make excellent family pets.
Labradoodles can be trained as service dogs or therapy dogs, as well as companions for people with disabilities or seniors.
Breeding Labradoodles is not difficult if you follow some basic rules of thumb.
You’ll need to start with two healthy, purebred parents who have been screened for genetic diseases. You can breed them if they are at least 2 years old and have had all their vaccinations.
Labradoodles will have puppies every six months to a year, so you will need to plan ahead when you want to breed your dog. You should wait until the female is at least 18 months old before breeding her for the first time so that she can spend time with her new puppy before being bred again.
If you plan on having puppies from your Labradoodle, it’s important that both parents have been tested for hip dysplasia (HD), elbow dysplasia (ED) and eye diseases such as progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) before breeding them together.
