What are Labradoodles?
Labradoodles are made up of Labradors and Poodles. There are different variations of this breed. Many generations have names. That name varies depending on how much lab and how much poodle are in the puppy. Multigenerational puppies are just that. Labradoodles bred to Labradoodles = "multigen Labradoodle".
Can you explain the generations of Doodles?
Labrador X Poodle = F1 Labradoodle (1/2 Labrador & 1/2 Poodle) - Most of these will shed (Our preferred service dog generation)
F1 Labradoodle X Poodle = F1b (1/4 Labrador & 3/4 Poodle) - Shouldn't shed
F1b X F1 = F2 ( ~1/3 Labrador & 2/3 Poodle) - Shouldn't Shed
F1b X F1b = F2 (1/4 Labrador & 3/4 Poodle) - Shouldn't shed
Anything past these we at Companion Creek Farm consider multi-generation. There is no need to get complicated. We focus on the above generations to keep it simple.
What is the difference between Labradoodle and Australian Labradoodle?

Why does Companion Creek Farm breed Labs, Poodles, & Doodles?
Companion Creek Farm breeds for our non-profit, Clever Companions and any other training organization that needs quality dogs for service. We also breed for families that are looking for a smart, sweet, and loving dog to add to their family. There are many breeds out there that are capable of becoming service dogs. We chose Labradors and Labradoodles. In order to make Labradoodles we need Labradors and Poodles. We predominantly breed Labradoodles but will have occasional Labrador and Poodle Litters to continue our bloodlines. We always have the service dog mentality so all of our breeding dogs are active service dogs or capable of being service dogs.
Why should I choose a Companion Creek Farm puppy?
Companion Creek Farm strives to breed quality puppies. We health test our breeding dogs to ensure they are healthy and do not carry any genetic diseases that can be passed down to other generations. Our breeding dogs are service dogs or capable of becoming service dogs. Also, our breeding dogs are chosen for temperament more so than coat. Most Labradoodles will have a wavy to curly non shedding coat so we focus more in temperament. All of our dogs are either members of our family or in a guardian home. That means that all of our breeding dogs are loved and a valued member of the family. We don't breed just to breed. We breed to provide a happy, healthy, loving additions to families searching that special fur baby. Labradors, Poodles, and Labradoodles are amazing dogs. We cannot imagine our lives without them. We want you to have the same amount of love in your home that we have!
Why are Labradoodles so expensive?
As you have read above, there many aspects to breeding Labradoodles. We must ensure that we have three healthy breeds not just one. Beth has been in veterinary medicine for over 20 years. She has seen what can happen when breeders don't do any health screening. She is also very adamant about the veterinary care our dogs receive. We must make sure that all our animals here at Companion Creek farm are up to date on vaccines, and on proper heartworm/flea medicines. That alone is a big expense. Following the routine care of every animal comes the health and genetics testing. Labradors and Poodles (along with all breeds) have their own genetic diseases they can carry. Labradoodles have both breeds in them so we must double the amount of testing which means more $$$. We are happy to do it and wouldn't have it any other way. However, in creating this amazing breed it is just more expensive. That is just how it is. However, in taking the time to test and spending the extra money we create amazing healthy puppies. Dogs that are healthy are happier. You are either going to pay up front for a healthy happy puppy or down the road when you are paying veterinary care professionals to make your dog's life more comfortable due to a genetic disease. If dogs aren't tested, it doesn't mean they carry a disease. It just means we don't know if they carry a genetic disease. Its a bit more of a gamble. Genetic testing is very beneficial and helps us to know that our puppies are less likely to have a disease that we test for. There are countless diseases that are not genetic however that we have no control over. Although there are no guarantees, our job is to do what we can to give our puppies the best chance at a happy healthy life.
