Miniature Labradoodle Breeders

If you are considering adopting a Miniature Labradoodle, it's a good idea to research both the breed and Miniature Labradoodle breeders. Your future dog's health and temperament depend on responsible breeding practices. Learn more about these dogs and what to look for in a breeder.

Early History

In 1988, Australian breeder Wally Cochran of The Royal Guide Dogs, bred a Labrador Retriever with a Standard Poodle for the first time in an attempt to provide a hypoallergenic guide dog for a client. The client had a husband with severe allergies and needed a guide dog that did not shed excessive hair or dander. The Labradoodle, aka "Doodle", worked for the client's household.

As the breed grew in popularity, breeders began breeding Doodles as both guide dogs and companion dogs.

The Labradoodle has a coat that ranges from soft and wavy fur or a wiry and curly fur to a straight and coarse coat. The breed comes in three sizes:

  • Miniature: 14 to 17 inches and 26 to 55 pounds
  • Medium: 18 to 21 inches and 40 to 55 pounds
  • Standard: 23 to 26 inches and 45 to 60 pounds for females and 55 to 77 pounds for males

The First Miniature Labradoodle

The American veterinarian and geneticist Dr. Kate Schoeffel bred the first Mini Labradoodle as a companion dog in 1991. The miniature is the result of breeding a male Toy or Miniature Poodle with a female Labrador Retriever.

Temperament

Miniature Labradoodles are loyal, affectionate and friendly dogs that enjoy interacting with people of all ages. The dogs are very intelligent and easy to train. They have a gentle nature that makes the Miniature Labradoodle an ideal family pet.

Responsible Breeding

When you search for a Miniature Labradoodle breeder, you'll want to find a responsible breeder. This person will be highly selective in their choice of which dogs to breed, the timing of the litters and the care of the dogs.

"Block head."

That's perfectly normal (the loose skin,) and it's normal for him to have a blocky head. Actually...it's preferred. It's known as an "English" Labrador Retriever or a "Blockhead."
As long as you had him checked by a Veterinarian to determine his HW status, then HeartGard is a good chewable HW preventative.
