Labradoodle Color:

Labradoodles come in a wide range of color, since Labrador Retrievers and Poodles come in many different colors. Some of the most common colors for Labradoodles include:

  • White
  • Cream
  • Gold
  • Caramel
  • Apricot
  • Red
  • Silver
  • Chocolate
  • Blue
  • Black

Goldendoodles tend to be lighter colored with most dogs having a coat that is white, cream, apricot, or red.

Labradoodle Coat Type:

Labradoodles’ coats fall into one of three categories (sometimes they are a mix of two of the categories below):

  1. fleece (non-shedding)
  2. wool (non-shedding)
  3. hair textured (shedding); this coat is very similar to that of a Labrador Retriever, and like the Lab, this coat will shed. The same is true with a Goldendoodle, that if the puppy get’s the Golden Retriever’s coat, it will shed. The Poodle coat is the dominant gene, but many people buy an F1b puppy (see the F-factor for an explanation), trying to insure a non-shedding coat.

Labradoodle Size:

Although initial Labradoodles were bred as a larger dog, they are now available in three basic sizes:

  1. Standard Labradoodles stand 21-24″ tall at the shoulder.
  2. Medium Labradoodles stand 17-20″ tall at the shoulder.
  3. Mini Labradoodles stand 14-16″ tall at the shoulder.
