Popular Dog Breeds: Labradoodle

About the Labradoodle:

Each bolded word below is a reason for why the Labradoodle is a popular breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the Labradoodle


The Labradoodle is a popular dog breed because it is hypoallergenic, easy to train, and just adorable. A Labradoodle is a cross between a poodle and labrador retriever.

Hypoallergenic

If a member in your family has allergies a maltipoo is a dog that doesn’t shed. This designer dog breed doesn’t shed because the poodle parent is hypoallergenic. Labradoodles unlike most dogs don’t have fur. Labradoodles have hair which means that the hairs keep on growing and growing. If you go to an a allergist for hypoallergenic dog breeds they might recommend the labradoodle. Unfortunately no dog is 100% hypoallergenic because their dandruff will shed.

Easy to Train

Labradoodles are easy to train and very smart. Labradoodles get their intelligence from the poodle.

And They Are Just Adorable

History

“The Labradoodle was originally developed in Australia to be a hypoallergenic guide dog. In 1989, Wally Conron, who was in charge of the breeding program for the Royal Guide Dogs Association of Australia, conducted the first purposeful crossbreeding between a Standard Poodle and Labrador Retriever

This first cross of Conron’s produced a dog called Sultan, who not only had the hypoallergenic coat but also had the aptitude, intelligence, and personality to be an effective guide dog. Sultan went on to work with a woman in Hawaii and was a successful at his work. At that point, other breeders saw the merit of crossing these two breeds.

Like the Labrador Retriever parent, the Labradoodle quickly rose in popularity and has become one of the most sought-after “Doodle breeds.” These dogs are often produced by crossing a Labrador Retriever with a Poodle, but multigenerational breeding has begun in an attempt to produce a viable and recognizable breed.

Both the Australian Labradoodle Association and the International Australian Labradoodle Association are taking steps in this direction (there are no Labradoodle breed clubs in North America), and they hope to move this designer breed into registered breed status in the next few years. These groups have made great efforts to bring breeders together so that they’re working to achieve the same standards through multigenerational breeding.” –http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/labradoodle

The Scarves

OTH scarves come in all different colors and patterns. The designs are very unique.

I ordered a blue one called the ROBIN (yes I know I don’t have a dog yet, but still it was too cute and pretty not to purchase.)

The price for one scarf is between 19 to 48 dollars depending on which one you choose. There is free shipping in the US for orders over $150. Through it is a bit pricey the scarves are high quality, limited, and take time to make even through they are sewn with a machine. The handmade fringe ones are usually more money because that takes even more time.

The Collars and Leashes

How to take the best dog photos

This is my first post on @thetweendogist blog!

How to take the best dog photos/How I take photos on my @thetweendogist instagram account


🐾The best dog photos when taken need patience.


🐩 Step 1: Have some thing the dog wants for instance a squeaky toy or treat.

🐶 Step 2: Move this object around your camera’s lens. This way  the dog will be looking the lens. Tip: If the dog is a bit jumpy at first wait for it to calm down and then take a/the photo when they are calm. I guarantee that photo will come out great.

🐕 Step 3: Well… There is no step three. It’s as easy as that all you need is patience, and a camera.


Here are some of my favorite dog photos: They are among the many photos I have taken.IMG_5324.JPG
