Searching for a Labradoodle for searching?
Nowadays, strains are used less and less for their initial intent–herding, hunting, etcetera–and much more for appearances than anything else. However, are you dreaming about carrying a Labradoodle duck looking? The question remains…are Labradoodles good hunting dogs?
It is different.
When some labradoodle breeders may and do breed Labradoodles specifically for searching, that is not the breed’s strong suit. Let us take a peek at why–and what precisely Labradoodles are good at.
When speaking about Labradoodles, we must distinguish between early-generation Labradoodles of blended poodle/Labrador ancestry, and Australian Labradoodles, whose lineage contains poodles, Labradors, Cocker spaniels (both English and American), Irish water spaniels, along with curly coat retrievers.
Having a combined lineage of strains intentionally bred for water fowl, searching and recovery, it is logical that Labradoodles–Australian and otherwise–would create ideal hunting dogs.
And this is correct, if your puppy is famous specifically for searching Labradoodle dogs.
On the other hand, the source of the Australian Labradoodle is not that of the greatest hunting dog, but instead the greatest hypoallergenic service dog.
After generations of breeding, Australian Labradoodles were created to perform a Couple of things exceptionally well:
They do not shed. While a few Labradoodles and Golden Doodles do drop, the huge majority of Australian Labradoodles are completely sterile, meaning they are excellent dogs for allergy sufferers.
They love folks. Australian Labradoodles were bred to assist the disabled. Even when you are not yourself disabled, this useful behavior carries over into what your Labradoodle does. Labradoodles enjoy spending time with their owners.
They love the outside. Australian Labradoodles inherit the boundless energy and love of exercise from 6 parent strains, and enjoy a physical obstacle.
