It is not enough to plan holidays or even the entire summer off to bond with your puppy. A labradoodle is not a good choice for families who go out to work every day. He will get bored and lonely resulting often in behaviour problems.
Some dogs go to work every day but this is not for every person or for every workplace. Please think carefully before you commit to this plan. We are reluctant to place a puppy in a home where everybody goes out to work and leaves puppy alone.
A labradoodle is not the dog to leave out in the yard for most of his waking hours. He will become an unhappy, nervous barker.
The Labradoodle is joyous. He loves a good game but will settle down when it is quiet time. That being said every labradoodle needs more exercise than he would get in the back yard. If your dog is restless or gets into trouble it is likely he is not getting enough exercise.
A labradoodle is a great fellow to have on a hike. Even the miniature doodles enjoy a good long walk and have great endurance.
Puppy is not ready for hikes. He is like a toddler and although seems filled with energy he has not grown enough to have endurance.
Although a Labradoodle will sound the alarm he is not by nature aggressive and was not bred to be a guard dog. Even small Australian Labradoodles are not constant barkers by nature.
