I know this topic gets done to death, but I'm on my phone and I can't figure out the search function
My friend has contacted me today asking me of I know and labradoodle breeders. I've explained to her why they're a bad idea, and now she's asking for alternatives.
I asked her why the cross, and her reasons were because they're non shedding, are intelligent, seem to be a friendly "breed" and are the size (med to large) that she wants.
I have suggested a standard poodle but had received the usual response that her husband doesn't like them.
What alternatives can I give her? I've also suggested Lagotto and Portugese Water dog.
Help please. She's found a breeder in gippsland via google for a Lab x poodle pup already!
People think just because you cross with a poodle that they are low allergy and non shedding. This is often not the case A.Family friend has a rescued
Labradore x Standard poodle ,he sheds heaps of hair all over the house and when my daughter stayed there
while studying her asthma returned and she needed to use her puffer for the first time in a few years.
Have a look at Airedales.
