The Australian Labradoodle is one of, if not the best choice for canine companionship when you have kids or are planning on starting a family. These soft fluffy pups are renowned for their mild temperament, quick wit, and calm yet joyous demeanor when handled. They are also the ideal dog for children with special needs, but they make a fantastic four-legged addition to any family. Big, small, toddlers or teens (and with or without additional fur-babies) these pups will fit right in to your home and your hearts.
The Australian Labradoodle isn’t technically a mutt, but the cross breeding of Labradors, Poodles, American and English Spaniels has created a breed temperament that is perfect for families. These pups are sweet and gentle, and full of an exuberant joy that is contagious. There’s nothing scarier than a cranky dog paired with a young child, but that’ll never be an issue with this breed. They are truly family- and kid-friendly. They even get along great with other dogs!
The Australian Labradoodle is amazingly intelligent. This makes them very easy to train, and that translates into family friendliness. No more worrying about pups jumping up on the kiddos, or tearing up toddler toys; these pups know how to listen and learn when given the proper training. They are also extremely funny, always playing jokes to get a giggle. They intuitively know what their family needs, making them a great help with curious kids and bad days alike.
Pet or Play
Australian Labradoodles are an energetic breed. They will run and play with your munchkins as long as they can keep up. But when you pick up these awesome pups, they are calm and quiet, gentle and soft. Many breeds squirm when held, especially by kids, but the Australian Labradoodle was specifically bred to act as service/therapy dogs for children. Their calmness and their joyous energy are all in their breeding, and both are essential for family-friendly pets.
Service Dog Heritage
The Australian Labradoodle was bred to meet the need for hypoallergenic service dogs for special needs children. Their fantastically friendly demeanor makes them an ideal candidate for families with kids who have special needs, as there’s no fear of aggression from these pups. Their superior intelligence means they can be trained to help kids with special needs get through their daily routines with ease. Finally, their intuition is all important, especially with non-verbal children. Instead of having to give commands, the dog simply knows when he is needed.
These wonderful attributes make the Australian Labradoodle the perfect canine choice for your growing family. If you have kids and are looking for a happy-go-lucky addition to adopt, these friendly, funny, and super-smart dogs are just what you’ve been searching for!
