Training and intelligence
The Labradoodle is very intelligent, but you do need to communicate to him what you want him to do. They can be mischevious, and you must channel that mental and physical energy into acceptable channels. That said, they want to please, so training should not be hard.

Temperament
This breed is very sociable. Labradoodles are very in tune with their people, however they need discipline or they will pu t their considerable intelligence into outwitting you! They are very affectionate and confident, and they bond with all the family.

Attitude towards strange dogs and people
The Labradoodle is a friendly breed, which are generally lacking the instincts of a watch dog. In general they are out-going and love meeting new people and dogs.

Grooming and shedding
This will vary from dog to dog, particularly in first generation Labradoodles - crosses between Labradors and Poodles. When Labradoodles are bred from other Labradoodles there is more predictablilty and consistency of coat type.

Exercise
Exercise needs will vary according to the size of the Labradoodle -i.e. whether it include a standard or toy poodle in its ancestry. However, generally they will require a significant of exercise to be happy. They excel at obedience and agilty, and all activities that help occupy that lively mind as well as burning off energy.

Need for company
Labradoodles do enjoy being with their people, but will tolerate being left for short periods once they are used to it. If left too much they can become bored, destructive and unhappy.

General
Labradoodles are generally very confident, as they combine the strong physical abilities of the Labrador with the considerable mental capacity and intuition of the Poodle. This breed has a reputation of being "hypoallergenic" and not aggravating dog allargies. BEWARE - there are no guarantees and no such thing as a "hypoallergenic" dog. You may well find a Labradoodle that does not trigger your dog allergy but this will not be true of each individual dog.

the third from last one,her name is maggie.she is my sisters dog,amanda.she looks better with longer hair.i love her to death!labradoodles and goldendoodle are so CUTE!

It's disappointing to see you refer to them as a breed when in reality they are mutts - mixed breeds - a poodle mixed with a Labrador, that some people will spend a lot of money on from a "breeder".

i love theese pups we might be getting one
i cant wait

I think that goldendoodles are one of the best kind of dogs. Easy to train and fun-loving.
