Tips for Finding the Best Labradoodle Breeders

Unfortunately, as Labradoodles are a highly popular dog, you will come across backyard breeders if you aren’t careful. (A backyard breeder is someone with unethical breeding standards.)

Watch for any of these warning signs:

  • The breeder is sending puppies home before 8 weeks of age (a 6-7 week old puppy is NOT fit to leave their mama just yet)
  • Breeder will not show you health testing certificates
  • Breeder will not show you vet records
  • Your puppy comes with no guarantee
  • Don’t raise the puppy with the mom and dad dogs on site (especially if the mom isn’t there)
  • There is no lifetime return policy (usually, breeders will request you return the dog to them if you are unable to care for them, regardless of the age. They will then find an appropriate home for the dog).
  • The breeder doesn’t ask you questions.

On top of doing research, you should ask the breeder if they have past clients you can reach out to. You can also join Labradoodle Facebook groups and ask if anyone has had experience with the Labradoodle breeders in question.

Labradoodles versus Australian Labradoodles

While searching for a Labradoodle breeder, you’re going to come across both Australian Labradoodle and Labradoodle breeders; but what’s the difference?

To understand, let’s first discuss how breeding a Labradoodle works.

If you breed a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle, you get a first-generation Labradoodle (also known as F1 Labradoodle). Now, if you take that F1 Labradoodle and breed it with a Poodle, you will have a F1b Labradoodle (which is then 75% Poodle and 25% Labrador).

Australian Labradoodles are cross between Labradoodles, Poodles, Cocker Spaniels, Irish Water Spaniels and Curly Coat Retrievers.

Therefore, if you want a Labrador/Poodle cross, you will want a Labradoodle. If you want other breeds in the mix, you may want to look at the Australian Labradoodle. Regardless, the list of Labradoodle breeders below breed Standard Labradoodles and some have Australian Labradoodles as well.

Here is a directory of Labradoodle breeders to help narrow down your search. They are divided up by country and state/province to help you find ones near you.
