    The Tasmanian Labradoodles that are advertised on television all the time come in 3 sizes, miniature, medium and standard.

    I have to laugh to keep from crying

    Crested_Love did you note the book 'No sneezes for Lily' ROFL an educational kids book about Labradoodles!
    But seriously, I can understand different sized Labradoodles for allergy based families, but why do we need so many -oodles in our world. Groodles, cavoodles, spanoodles.
    What is next germoodle police dogs, for Police officers with allergies? lol Kelpoodle for an allergy prone farmer lol?

    I am not having a shot at the poodle itself. gorgeous dogs I just think the oodle acpect is to easily over used in cross breeding

    I love my poodles & love even the crosses but yes these silly names & silly crosses are stupid.
    I can apprecate not everyone wants the hype & fair bones of a pure poodle but the demand is no where near the rate they are being breed at & 1st cross poodles can have terrible coats to look after too.
    Dogs make everyday life enjoyable...........

    The aforementioned kennel has sold 800 puppies in the past 10 years... and that's just the ones they have recorded.

    At $3,000 a pup well... you do the math.

    I can understand the appeal, but the whole reason they were bred in the first place was to produce an allergy friendly guide dog.
    The man who started the project bred the dog properly and responsibly and still failed... he could not achieve a standard especially with coat texture. Even that site above sells 2 different coat textures so after all these generations they STILL can't get it right.

    I don't know why Standard poodles can't just be used as guide dogs.

    Good point - poodles are extemely intelligent and easy to train dogs. My mum has a mini labradoodle she adopted when a friend coudnt look after it, and its coat is a nightmare - needs just as much attention as the poodle she had before.
