Typical Coloring

Labradoodles are commonly gold, cafe, carmel, chalk, black, red, apricot, chocolate, silver, blue, cream or parchment.





If the dog world had a “most likely to make a new friend” award, Labradoodles would win. These friendly, affectionate dogs are very devoted to their families and take great joy in everything that they do. They are fun to be around.




Activity Level

Labradoodles are a medium-energy hybrid with moderate exercise requirements!

They need 30 to 60 minutes of physical exertion each day. Ideally they will have a fenced-in yard to romp in; they do not do well in apartments without access to yards. Daily mental stimulation is also key for this intelligent hybrid.
