Wool-Dense curls, much like lamb's wool. Brushing is necessary about once a week and coats should be trimmed three to four times a year. This is the best choice for sufferers of allergies or asthma.
Fleece-Wavy or loose spiraling coat. Brushing necessary every couple weeks to avoid mats. Coats should be trimmed once or twice a year. Allergy and asthma friendly.
Hair-Straight, feathering, scruffy, or mild wavy. Light to heavy shedding. Brushing necessary about once a month. Not allergy friendly.
Wool and Fleece coat Labradoodles will go through a coat change at around a year and a half that can last anywhere from a week to several weeks. Since these coats do not shed, you must groom the old coat out or have it trimmed. Brushing is recommended daily during this period to avoid matting or you can choose to try a shorter Doodle doo.
Note: Not all Labradoodles are allergy and asthma friendly. The success rate has been very high for dogs with wool and fleece coats, but there are no guarantees. If possible, test your reaction to a wool or fleece coat Labradoodle before making the decision to purchase one.
As you look for your new puppy, you will find that Labradoodles come in a plethora of color variations. The main colors are Cream, Chocolate, and Black. Each of these colors have multiple shades that can appear depending on the genetic make-up of the parents.
Creams: Chalk, Cream, Gold, Caramel, Red, Apricot
Chocolates: Chocolate, Cafe, Parchment, Lavender
Blacks: Black, Silver, Blue
