The Labradoodle is a hybrid breed—a cross between a Labrador and a Poodle.
Hybrid dogs may inherit distinct traits from either parent breed in terms of their appearance and personality, but are most often a combination of the two.
This is definitely true of most Labradoodles but there’s definitely wiggle room when it comes to traits like the type of coat, color, and overall size.
In addition, Labradoodle puppies may be social and outgoing like their Labrador parent, or calm (yet still energetic) taking cues from their poodle background.
That being said, they do tend to share some key traits that may serve us well in the naming department.
Most notably, Labradoodles have high energy and a playful nature, moreover, they are intelligent with an affectionate demeanor.
Labradoodles need a constant outlet for their boundless energy—one of the blessings (or challenges) of raising a one.
They love to run and play, require daily stimulation, and are known for their intelligence, and ability to learn commands quickly.
Finally, Labradoodle pups typically shower their owners with affection—they love playing with their owners as well as receiving a lot of attention and praise.
