Here is something to add, while the topic of shedding has been brought on....how much is too much shedding for a doodle that is more lab appearance??? ok, maybe thats not the right question!! I have white tile in my kitchen and by the end of the day its literally covered in black fur. I bought a shop vac, and that has helped better than a regular vaccum with clogging. Oh, and he is brushed daily. Some days I just think he sheds way too much!!!
