i posted here before about the fact we are getting a labradoodle, and after reading the posts, went and re-did a lot of research into our breeder and went over everything with a fine-tooth comb. we had already done so much research but i appreciated the feedback on here so wanted to just double check.
<div>we are so happy with our breeder. it seems that the australian labradoodle is becoming a very quality bred dog and very popular!</div>
<div>if anyone is interested to see, their website is:</div>
<div>they do health checks on each dog, breed with dogs from australia (they are in nz) are strict on where they send puppies to (we had to answer so many questions!) breed with multi gen dogs, crate train, vaccinate, microchip etc, seem to know their stuff! i would NEVER get a dog from a puppy mill. cesar millan has taught me just how tragic they are! (i hadnt heard of them until reading his books) breaks my heart. </div>
<div>so i feel a lot better about getting a wee guy from our breeder now! and for those who say they are a mutt, i suppose they are! but some of the best dogs in the world are mutts 😉 and we dont mind paying more for a dog that has a clean bill of health and from good strong parents who will come to us from loving homes etc. </div>
<div>i appreciated everyones insight into this breed though, definitely things to consider! we have done literally 2 years of researching all the breeds out there, and this one is the best fit for us. </div>
<div>so please no negativity as im so so excited 😀 😀 :D</div>
<div>who actually has a labradoodle here? id love to hear about him/her and see pictures!!!</div>
<div>our wee guy looks like this. any name ideas?????</div>

nowmarriedgirl: it’d take me a while to find pics but we got my grandparents a labradoodle for christmas a few years ago. His name is Mac and he has a beautiful black lab like coat but you can see the poodle in him with his curly hair on top. his dad was a brown very curly standard poodle and his mom was a dark brown lab, they had a litter of about 8 or so. Even though it was a strenuous process researching etc. it was so worth it seeing the looks on my grandparents faces. best of luck !

nowmarriedgirl: my brother in law & his wife have a goldendoodle and he is soo sweet & soft! Such a cuddly pup, but man is he high energy!!! Their main reasoning was that he was hypoallergenic, which I though was a load of BS until we spent half an hour trying to pull any bit of hair off him and ended up with nothing- pretty amazing!

My first thought for a name was Macaroni, because that’s kind of what his fur looks like. You could call him Mac for short.

We love all 90lbs of springy, crazy, goofy legged labradoodle that is our boy! But Ace is both terrified of swimming (as the cross of two water retrievers…Cause that makes sense) and convinced he is a lap dog. He kind of looks like a Muppet, all legs and never quite sure where all four of them are at once. And the tail of death! But he is such a sweetie and now that he is almost two, growing out of some of the crazy puppy. And because I’m on my phone the pics are in a weird order but it goes 1 year, puppy, 6 months, 3 months and now. Cause I am one of those people with more pics of their dog than most normal people have of their children.

Hi! Fellow NZ person here 🙂 I don’t really post as you can tell, but we are in Auckland and brought a wee puppy from this exact breeder back in March! We are extremely happy with him, and and he is just the most gorgeous intelligent addition to our small family! He actually looks quite similar to yours when he was a bit smaller. He was born in January (8 months now). The breeder was so helpful and lovely and we had no problems with him so far, and everyone loves him!
I will try uploading a photo, but I’ve never done it before so I can’t be sure how it will turn out!

Sorry about the horrible picture resizing but I’m sure you get the idea 🙂

Not going to post anything about the breed but you really need to expand your knowledge of dog trainers if you think Cesar Milan is any kind of good. He is a terrible, awful trainer who trains using fear.

Hey! We have a family labradoodle. He’s almost a year old and still such a cutie. He’s very playful and sometimes quite the vocal pup. He could benefit from some obedience training but that’s our own fault for being too lazy. He toilet trained very quickly. He’s an all-round good dog, a really sweet addition to our household.

greenmile12: the OP didn’t say she believes in training using the practices of Cesar Milan. Learn to read!
All she said was she learned the downside of puppy mills from him.

We have a multigen labradoodle. Her name is Izzy and she is the sweetest dog I’ve ever owned.

My dad has one called Reiley and she’s great. Very affectionate! Can have a sensitive tummy if fed junk food. She ran off with my daughters cheeseburger once and was sick vomiting all night. She’s very playful and they adore kids. Hypo allergenic too, so good on the allergy front 🙂 They are a really great family pet!

We love Willa, our Labradoodle! She’s 9 months old and 55 pounds! She is very sweet, but definitely needs a lot of excercise (during the day she goes to “big breed K-9 camp”). The little pup is Button, a bichon mix! We are very lucky to have such sweet, funny pups!
