The Labradoodle is the lovable cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. This mixed breed’s name was first mentioned by Sir Donald Campbell when he wrote about his Lab/Poodle mix in his 1955 book, “Into the Water Barrier.” Originally, the Labradoodle was bred to be a low-allergen guide dog, but today makes a wonderful family companion and hunting dog. They are generally friendly dogs and because their parent breeds are two of the most intelligent dogs in the dog world, they are a very smart, highly trainable breed.
Despite their intelligence, Labradoodles are still prone to a number of hereditary and congenital conditions that can adversely affect their health – not to mention your family budget. Some of the conditions and illnesses Labradoodles are prone to include hip problems such as hip dysplasia; eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma and retinal dysplasia; and skin problems such as atopy.
Thankfully, Petplan pet insurance covers all hereditary and chronic conditions for the life of your pet as standard. Which means if your Labradoodle inherits more than just a love of cleanliness or a strong attitude, you’re covered.
