theLabradoodle has unbiased and accurate information about Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, Aussiedoodles, Schnoodles, and other Doodle-dog, Poodle hybrids.

From the outset, let us explain to you our goal for and the need for this site with its info about Doodles.


Our goal

1. To provide you with unbiased and accurate info about Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, Aussiedoodles, and other Doodle-dog, Poodle hybrids

2. To do so in an attractive and intuitive environment

The need

There are plenty of dog websites around (even Labradoodle and Goldendoodle sites), so why start this one? That’s a great question.

Here’s my simple answer. When I was looking for information to decide if I wanted to purchase a Labradoodle, Goldendoodle, or Aussiedoodle, I found a problem. I looked at more than 100 websites about Doodles, but they all were flawed (in my opinion).

The flaws fell into 4 major categories.

1. Biased: Most of the websites were trying to sell me a Labradoodle, Goldendoodle, Aussiedoodle, Schnoodle, or some other dog. Obviously if a breeder’s livelihood is dependent upon you buying his dog, he’s going to tell you it’s the best breed in the world. The biased nature of most of the Doodle websites led me to question their reliability and objectivity about Doodles.

2. Inaccurate: Many of the websites gave contradictory information about Labradoodles and Goldendoodles. Upon further research, I found that several of them were flat out wrong about various points of Doodle dog info.

3. Unattractive: Some of the Goldendoodle and Labradoodle websites had helpful information, but my head got dizzy with conflicting fonts, pink ribbons, and difficult to read cursive headlines. Doodles are nice looking dogs and deserve to be represented better.

4. Difficult to navigate: This point often corresponded with the Doodle websites that were not attractive. Most had very little helpful information about Labradoodles,  Goldendoodles, Aussiedoodles, and Schnoodles. A few had much information, but the layout wasn’t intuitive and was difficult to follow.


Assessing the flaws of other websites, I tried to create a site that would remedy those problems. I’ve done a lot of research, and I want to provide you with reliable information that is:

1. Unbiased: This website is not trying to sell you anything. I don’t think that a Labradoodle is the right dog for everyone. I don’t think that Goldendoodles are the best thing since sliced bread. I’m not convinced that Aussiedoodles are as smart as Albert Einstein. Every website in the world is created to (1) sell you something, (2) help you do something, or (3) give you information. This site lands clearly in the 3rd category. It does not exist to make money or accomplish a task, but to tell you something–hopefully what I tell you about Doodles is helpful, accurate, unbiased.

2. Accurate: I’m a university professor, not a dog breeder. I’ve had a nearly lifelong interest in dogs, and I became particularly interested in Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, and Aussiedoodles shortly after I’d written my dissertation. Compared to the more than 3,000 books, journal articles, and other dissertations I interacted with to finish my dissertation, the research necessary for this website was easy and enjoyable. I’ve tried to read the best books on the subject so that you won’t have to.

3. Attractive: Although I’m not a graphic designer, I’ve been privileged to take a couple graphic design classes. Style is an intensely personal thing, but I’ve tried to follow conventional standards to create a site that will not assault your visual senses as you read about Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, and other Doodle dogs.

4. Intuitive: I’ve tried to structure the site so that information follows a logical progression. Hopefully you will find here the answers you need about Labradoodles/Goldendoodles whether or not that leads you to buy a Doodle puppy.

BestGoldendoodles-cream-Goldendoodles is constantly being updated. I welcome input from other Labradoodle, Goldendoodle, Aussiedoodle, Schnoodle (and other Doodle) owners who can help me make this site better and keep it unbiased. I believe Doodles are wonderful dogs, but they are not right for everyone. I’m also a big believer in adopting a puppy from a Humane Society if your family has flexible needs. I understand it is nearly impossible to find a nice Labradoodle or Goldendoodle at a shelter or Humane Society.

You may have decided that you want some type of Doodle dog, but be wondering about which kind to buy. If so you’ll be especially interested in the section “Which Doodle is Best?” This part of the site is a comparison of the Labradoodle, Goldendoodle, Aussiedoodle, and Schnoodle.

If you’re looking to buy a Doodle puppy, I do not sell them on this site, as I try to remain unbiased. I can recommend for Goldendoodle puppies, for Aussiedoodle puppies and for Labradoodle puppies:

I’d welcome your input about ways to improve and make it the best possible Doodle site on the web!
