this lady is wrong. We went to PetsMart yesterday to get some dog and cat food when we walked in there was a lady from the rescue place with some dogs. We went to pet them and talked to the lady. She asked us to adopt a dog we told her we already got our Labradoodle and I even explained to her that I have allergies and I need a dog that I can live with for the next 13+ years. I also told her that all my cats and one dog are rescue and this is the one time that we decided to get a dog from the breeder only because of my allergies. She than told us that Labradoodles are stupid dogs and they are very hard to train. She said there are more Labradoodles get dropped off at the shelter than any other dogs. However I personally have never seen a Labradoodle at the shelter and only found out about the breed from other people with allergies and my doctor. Can someone please tell me that Labradoodles are not stupid dogs? Why would someone say something like this? This was so mean of her to say that when she saw how excited we were about our new puppy. We even signed him for a puppy class for this weekend. I was just totally shocked to hear what she said after I already told her that most my animals are rescues and not from the shelter I picked them up on the street when they were almost at the end of their lives. What's wrong with getting a dog from the breeder? I understand there are a lot of dogs that need homes but I have health reasons why I got Labradoodle. If it was not Labradoodle we would have bought a Standard Poodle but since I love Labs so much I thought this was great idea to have the two breeds in one dog. I think you have two best worlds in my opinion. Are your Labradoodles hard to train?
