The Labradoodle is not only one of the most popular mixed breed dogs, but they are also one of the friendliest and gentle breeds out there.

Mild-mannered breeds like the Labradoodle make great therapy dogs, but that is not all they are good for – they can also be trained as guide dogs.

The most popular breed of guide dog is a Labrador.

However, other breeds of dogs are also used including, Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds.

Labradoodles (a cross between a Labrador and a poodle) are a common crossbreed to provide guide dogs with less shedding for people who have allergies.


Labradoodles, which are Labrador retriever and poodle crosses, are known for having an excellent temperament, according to Dog-Learn.

They're great dogs for families who are getting a Dog for the first time since they're highly intelligent and eager to learn.


The Labradoodle is probably not on other lists of dog breeds suitable for an apartment because the standard dog can weigh around 25 – 30kg, which means they need room to rest and move around.

This breed is on our list because they generally have a cheery, calm temperament, trainable, low shedding and don't bark much.


The labradoodle possesses a good combination of behavioral characteristics from its parent breeds.

They are usually good-natured, energetic, family-friendly dogs that do well with children and other pets.

The result was an affectionate, low-shedding dog with the Poodle's intelligence and the Labrador Retriever's sociable and love-of-people personality. Labradoodles are average-size dogs that, with proper socialization and training, make excellent family pets, watchdogs, or all-around companion dogs.

Mixed breed dogs are great, and tend to be more healthy long term, when compared to pure bred dogs.

Goldendoodle/Labradoodle- These dogs are just Golden Retrievers and Labs mixed with a poodle.

Labrador Retriever- A strong hiker, powerful swimmers, incredibly friendly, great with adults and children.

But can Labradoodles make for good hunting dogs? Yes, they can certainly be good hunting dogs. While hunting may not be the Labradoodle's strong suit, they are the result of combining two incredible hunting breeds; the Labrador Retriever and Poodle.
