Keeping Your Labradoodle in Tip Top Shape with Good Conditioning

Grooming your Australian Labradoodle

Brush coats once a week. Be especially conscientious around ages 8-12 months to keep their coats from matting.
Bathe occasionally, not too often. It is essential for your dogs comfort to maintain natural oils in their skin.
When bathing, avoid getting water in their ears. This can lead to a yeast infection.
Use shampoo and conditioner made for dogs.
Towel dry thoroughly.
Check nails every two weeks and keep them trimmed so the quick doesn’t grow out too long.

Labradoodles as Service Dogs

If you have spent any time researching the Labradoodle breed, you have already learned that Labradoodles were first bred as service dogs – a dog that combined the intelligence of the Labrador, with the hypo-allergenic quality coat of a Poodle. The instincts that brought these two breeds together created a breed that is ideal for service – Labradoodles are intelligent, highly intuitive, easy to train, and ideal for working with either adults or children.

Jubilee Labradoodles produces Labradoodles in MI that are perfect for Service or Assistance dog training. Our medium Labradoodles have been entered into training programs to become service dogs. Our medium labradoodles service dogs help people in the following ways:

Hearing Alert Dogs – Assist owners with recognizing audible sounds, telephone, doorbell, emergency alarms, etc.

Guide Dogs – Help owners who are suffering from visual impairment.
Support Dogs – Provide assistance for people suffering from balance disorder, including physical support.
Psychological Support Dogs – Assist owners that are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Therapy Dogs – These dogs are not considered part of the legal definition of service dogs, but are used increasingly to provide emotional support; especially useful with the elderly and children dealing with autism or sensory integration disorders.

It’s easy to see these beautiful, medium labradoodles and mistakenly believe that these are clown dogs, or trick dogs. Certainly our Labradoodles in MI are highly intelligent and adept at a variety of training, but their intuitive nature is one of the most import considerations as service dogs.

Labradoodle Dogs – Body Conformation of a Beauty

Are you thinking of adding a Labradoodle dog to your family? This unique breed of dogs is relatively unknown, but quickly growing in popularity. Their popularity is due to the fact that these dogs are intelligent, dependable, playful, and allergy-friendly – one more thing, they are absolutely adorable.

While Labradoodle puppies may look like they are cute little dolls, a great deal of care and science goes into breeding Australian Labradoodle dogs. A good Labradoodle breeder is concerned with breeding dogs that follow the American Australian Labradoodle Association requirements for the breed. This means that Labradoodle breeders seek out dogs that show the customary temperament and intelligence of the breed, good health, and demonstrate the body conformation traits of the breed.

What exactly does the body of a carefully bred Labradoodle dog look like? Good conformation on a Labradoodle includes the following:

Size of Dog – Labradoodle dogs tend to be compact. These dogs are medium to light boned, with a quick, graceful, galloping motion when running. While Labradoodle dogs are bred to one of three size standards, their basic body conformation is the same, regardless of overall size:

Miniature –16 inches and under in height, weight between 15 – 30 pounds.
Medium – 17 to 20 inches in height, weight between 30 – 45 pounds.
Standard – 21 inches and up in height, weight between 45 – 80 pounds.

Body – Labradoodle breeders look for dogs who have an elegant body. Labradoodle dogs are slightly longer in length than height, with compact bodies. Their top line is level, with strong loins and slightly sloping shoulders. Flanks rise up to medium tuck – these dogs have a galloping gait which is quite beautiful to watch.

Head – Labradoodle dogs have a head that is very proportional to the rest of the body. The length from the nose to eyes is slightly longer than the length from eyes to the back of the head. The head should be nicely shaped and flow into a strong, muscular neck.

Eyes – Labradoodles have beautiful, large expressive eyes.

Nose – The nose should be large and fleshy, never a pointed nose.

Tail – Labradoodles will have a long, saber shaped tail. Labradoodles breeders do not dock tails.

Feet – Labradoodle dogs have thick foot pads that are situated close together.

Teeth – These dogs have a scissor-like bite with top teeth slightly overlapping the bottom teeth.
Labradoodle breeders take great care to breed a dog that features the right body conformation and good health. You can tell you have a genuine Labradoodle dog by the care used in breeding practices and the standards maintained. At Jubilee Labradoodles, we carefully maintain breed standards and produce beautiful, healthy and intelligent Labradoodle dogs.

Australian Labradoodles – Mutts or Genuine Breed?

It sounds easy to come up with a new designer dog – just take a couple of dogs, let them breed, and before you know it, you have a new breed, right? Wrong! Ask any Australian Labradoodle breeders about the care and study of their breeding methods and you’ll find a unique and complex story.

The first Labradoodle was a cross between the Poodle and the Labrador, but since that first mating, there’s been a lot of refinement and care in the breeding practices. In fact, Australian Labradoodle breeders have a set of standards that were established to protect and maintain healthy breeding practices and the integrity of the breed.

Breeding of Labradoodles may have started with crossing a Poodle and a Labrador, but it’s become much more complex. Australian Labradoodle breeders select dogs that provide a good gene pool, are free of disease, and offer excellent body formation, temperament and intelligence. They look for Poodles, Labradors, and over the years, have carefully infused other specific breeds one time to make the Australian labradoodle unique and to give them a healthy gene pool. While breeding these dogs, they maintain the care of establishing a line of healthy dogs with the special personality that is common to the breed.

There are plenty of people that have tried – unsuccessfully – to breed Labradoodles. It requires more than just mating two dogs. Unfortunately, most of those breeders don’t follow the guidelines established by the Australian Labradoodle Association. Instead, they use dogs of inferior quality, those with recessive or dominant genes for illness, and even add bloodlines such as retrievers into the mix.

Short Hair Coat – This type of coat shows the more prominent influence of the short Labrador coat. The short hair coat is easy to manage in terms of shampooing and brushing, but does tend to shed to varying degrees.. Of course, frequent brushing eliminates much of the shedding.

Longer Hair Coat – Again, this type of coat shows the influence of the Labrador in the breed. The coat is longer and straight. It is silky, fine and prone to some shedding. This coat requires regular brushing and washing.

Curly Wool Coat – This coat shows the poodle influence. Originally, Australian labradoodles were bred for the ideal coat – a poodle curly coat which looked like wool with soft, tight curls that grow tightly together. This type of coat does not need as much trimming, usually a few times a year. The curly wool coat was considered ideal because it didn’t shed, and would cause few or no allergens.

Fleece Coat – The fleece coat is the true combination of the characteristics of the careful infusions of other breeds to enhance the original foundation stock of the poodle and Labrador mix. As the Australian labradoodle puppies mature, the fleece coat grows longer than the wool coat, and the hair strands kink slightly. This coat has a wonderful rippling quality as the dog moves. Dogs with a fleece coat need regular maintenance around their eyes, ears, and beard to provide good hygiene for the dog.

Australian Labradoodle breeders are committed to producing a breed of dog that can be used as service dogs, offer hypo-allergenic coats, great bone structure, and long-term health. These dogs are extremely intelligent, with gentle, almost intuitive personalities. Good Labradoodles are exceptional dogs, and their Australian Labradoodle breeders are concerned with amazing quality.

Australian Labradoodle Puppies – Unique Coat Texture

If you look at pictures of Australian labradoodle puppies, it’s hard to resist falling in love. These adorable “clown-like” dogs look like little fluff balls on feet. At first glance, these dogs all look alike, except for a difference in coloring. But actually, there are several variations in the texture of the labradoodle coats that provide the Australian labradoodle puppies with a very distinct appearance.

Australian labradoodles are a product of careful breeding. Other breeds have been infused to enhance certain characteristics of the coat types, ear sets, confirmation and colors, etc. One of the elements that make up the breeding decision is the type of coat of the dog. Australian labradoodle puppies have one of four types of coats:

Short Hair Coat – This type of coat shows the more prominent influence of the short Labrador coat. The short hair coat is easy to manage in terms of shampooing and brushing, but does tend to shed to varying degrees.. Of course, frequent brushing eliminates much of the shedding.

Longer Hair Coat – Again, this type of coat shows the influence of the Labrador in the breed. The coat is longer and straight. It is silky, fine and prone to some shedding. This coat requires regular brushing and washing.

Curly Wool Coat – This coat shows the poodle influence. Originally, Australian labradoodles were bred for the ideal coat – a poodle curly coat which looked like wool with soft, tight curls that grow tightly together. This type of coat does not need as much trimming, usually a few times a year. The curly wool coat was considered ideal because it didn’t shed, and would cause few or no allergens.

Fleece Coat – The fleece coat is the true combination of the characteristics of the careful infusions of other breeds to enhance the original foundation stock of the poodle and Labrador mix. As the Australian labradoodle puppies mature, the fleece coat grows longer than the wool coat, and the hair strands kink slightly. This coat has a wonderful rippling quality as the dog moves. Dogs with a fleece coat need regular maintenance around their eyes, ears, and beard to provide good hygiene for the dog.

Australian labradoodle puppies are a product of careful breeding. Breeders look for dogs that represent the ideal mix for body formation, temperament, intelligence, and coat formation. Take a look at our puppy photos to see the combination of colors and coat textures that make our puppies so adorable and a wonderful addition to your home.

Labradoodles – Charming and Adorable Additons to a Family

Are you looking for a remarkable breed of dog to provide devotion and companionship? There’s no breed that’s better than the Labradoodle. The Labradoodle is perfect for almost any lifestyle – a loving, smart dog that sheds little and works well for families with allergies.

Labradoodles puppies are a result of careful cross-breeding of a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. Breeding Labradoodle puppies is far more complex than merely introducing a Poodle to a Retriever. In fact, Labradoodle breeders systematically develop breeding plans. They identify dogs of each breed that have the ideal physical characteristics, health and temperament. The breeders also introduce additional dogs and breeds to the breeding stock to maintain exceptional health.

Labradoodles have a charming, almost clown-like appearance. While their body configuration is similar to the Retriever, the dense coat of the Labradoodle will vary quite a bit. Sometimes the coat reflects either the Labrador or the Poodle parentage. Labradoodles may have a smooth short or long hair coat, or their coat may be a reflection of their Poodle parentage with a wooly or fleece-like appearance.

Labradoodles are extremely intelligent and friendly. In part, their clown like appearance is a reflection of their desire to connect with owners or others around them. They actually seem to look to people for directions or cues, often tilting their heads as they look at you with curiosity.

As a result of careful breeding, most Labradoodle breeders offer Labradoodle puppies in one of three size categories – Standard, Medium or Miniature. The size of the puppies is dependent on the size of the Poodle parent. For instance, a Standard Poodle will result in standard sized Labradoodles. While it’s impossible to exactly predict the size of the puppies, most Labradoodle puppies fall within the following size categories:

Standard Labradoodle – Standard Labradoodles can weigh between 45 to 75 pounds, and will reach a height of 23 to 26 inches. Male dogs are usually heavier than adult females.
Medium Labradoodle – Medium Labradoodle will weigh between 40 to 55 pounds, and reach a height of 18 to 21 inches.
Miniature Labradoodle – Miniature Labradoodle will weigh between 25 to 45 pounds, and reach a height of 14 to 17 inches

There’s no doubt that Labradoodle puppies are incredibly charming and fun. But their temperament also makes them the ideal addition to a family. They are loving, devoted pets; they exhibit their strong intelligence by readily accepting training. Labradoodles are delightful companions and wonderful additions to a family. When you buy a Labradoodle puppy, you’ll wonder why you didn’t buy one sooner.

There is no doubt that Australian labradoodles make for great pets, but many people do not know much about their interesting history.

As the name implies, these dogs originated in Australia. Here, a man by the name of Wally Conran bred a Labrador Retriever to a Standard Poodle in order to help a vision-impaired woman whose husband was allergic to dogs. By combining the two breeds, Conran was able to provide her with a great lead dog that wouldn’t aggravate her husband’s allergies.

Conran first tried to help the woman by finding a poodle who wouldn’t aggravate her husband’s allergies. But, after sending 33 different saliva samples to the woman over a period of two years and, finding that all of the samples aggravated her husband’s allergies, he finally had to look at other options.

That was when he decided to develop the first Australian labradoodle. Today, Australian labradoodle puppies can be identified by a number of characteristics. These include…

Body – compact and slightly longer than they are tall with slightly sloping shoulders
Head – proportional to the rest of the body, with the length from the nose to the eyes being slightly longer than from the eyes to the back of the head
Eyes – large and expressive
Nose – large, fleshy and never pointed
Tail – long and shaped like a saber; not docked
Feet – thick foot pads that are close together
Teeth – slightly overlapping

Of course, the appearance of Australian labradoodles will vary somewhat depending upon the appearance of its parents as well as upon how the genes are divvied up. It is not unusual for Australian labradoodle puppies to look like small versions of Labradors, but it is also not unusual for them to look more like a poodle — or like something in between.

You can find the exact Australian labradoodle puppies to suit your specific taste, while also remaining true to this hybrid breed.

The simple truth is that Australian labradoodles make for great pets and are simply adorable, no matter what variety you get. So, if you are thinking about purchasing one of these pets, make sure to purchase it from a reliable breeder and you will be sure to be thrilled with the results.

Find A Dog That Works With Allergies

Do you suffer from allergies to pet dander? You might think that means you can’t have a dog without submitting to allergy medication or shots. Actually, there is a breed of dogs that was bred specifically to work well in the home’s of allergy sufferers – Australian Labradoodles.

The Australian Labradoodle is a cross-breed between Labrador Retrievers and Poodles. The intention was to breed a dog that was intelligent and trainable as a service dog, with a dog that was non-shedding and would work in the home of an allergy sufferer. This breeding program carefully examined all dogs, using genetic testing and tracking to find dogs that had the ideal physical and temperament qualities. Over time, additional breeds were added to the mix to further strengthen the breed and ensure the physical qualities and good health of these dogs.

Unfortunately, you can’t simply breed a Labrador with a Poodle and get a Labradoodle – at least one with a non-shedding coat. If you look at the history of the Australian Labradoodle puppies, you will see that each successive generation became stronger and more likely to exhibit that ideal coat.

Labradoodles dogs have several different types of coats – a smooth, short or long hair coat that’s very similar to the Labradors, or a wool or fleece coat that is similar to the Poodles. It’s the wool or fleece coat that is most likely to be hypo-allergenic.

The wool coat – This coat is non-shedding. The wool coat is short, tight spring curls that grow outwards all over the body. This is the best coat for people that suffer from allergies or asthma. Labradoodles with a wool coat will still require brushing and clipping – but on a limited basis – perhaps two or three times a year.
The Fleece coat – The fleece coat is longer and kinky in appearance. The coat flows evenly over the dog, with long tight hair strands. The fleece coat is almost as good for allergy sufferers as the wool coat, with little shedding. Of course, this coat requires the same brushing and clipping as the wool coat.

The secret to finding Labradoodle dogs that exhibit the ideal non-shedding or hypo-allergenic coat is to look for a multi-generational dog, especially Australian Labradoodle puppies. The multi-generational approach to breeding allows for careful additions of dogs into the gene pool with a specific aim at producing the tight, non-shedding coat.

Australian Labradoodles puppies will make you forget you ever suffered from allergies. These adorable dogs will become important and constant companions. They are a great addition to any home.
