The Labrador Retriever is one of many breeds of the retriever hunting type. American Labs were bred for their skills while the English were bred for their looks. Generally American Labs will be slightly easier to train with a higher level of energy (perfect for runners/very active people). Labs are currently the most popular dog placed into service due to a perfect combination of high train-ability with a gentle nature. Generally English Labs will tend to be a bit more sedentary and overall mellow temperaments. Overall Labs are extremely loyal and intelligent. Labradors are THE most popular pet breeds in numerous countries, including the United States. While they still serve the purpose for which they were initially bred, which is retrieving small downed waterfowl, they are also adept at a number of other jobs including leading the blind, acting as hearing dogs, and police and military work. Their kind nature, obedience, and knack for getting along with children also gives them the reputation of being the ideal pet.

A Labradoodle is a cross or hybrid between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. It is sometimes difficult to discern what characteristics your Labradoodles might grow up to have. Because of this, certain traits, such as hair, can come in a variety of ways such as wiry, soft, straight, wavy, or curly.
Hair needs to be brushed to prevent matting. Occasional trimming or stripping is needed, typically costing $100 every 2-3 months at a groomer.
Shedding Varies: In general Labradoodles shed less than Labs, however, unless a breeder has a solid understand of and is employing genetic testing regarding genetics that cause shedding, most Labradoodles will shed light to moderately. However, the FURminator works amazingly well. 10 minutes a month keeps shedding to a minimum. Labradoodles are recommended for owners who do not want to deal with hair in their cars and homes. Ideal for people with allergies. Many people loosely refer to Labradoodles as being"hypoallergenic", however, there is no dog that is hypoallergenic. However, Labradoodles tend to shed minimal dander and because they have hair, not fur, they usually do not shed or very minimally shed and the majority of people suffering from dog allergies are not allergic to Labradoodles.
