Part Lab, part Poodle - could this dog get any cuter? If you are one of the lucky ones to have this amazing breed of dog, you surely want to play with them all the time. So what kinds of games do Labradoodles like? What will excite them and keep that fluffy face smiling? And most importantly, what can you do with your Labradoodle to bond with your pup even more? Here are a few fun activities that are perfect for a Labradoodle!
Labradoodles are known for their intelligence and for good reason - Poodles are smart and Labradors are also very bright. It makes sense that when the two are combined, an extremely bright breed is the result. There are many ways to keep your dog's brain active and by providing your Labradoodle with mind stimulating activities, they will stay happy and entertained. Training and teaching your dog is also something that you should never stop doing. Many people put the training to rest after their Labradoodle reaches adulthood but don't do this! Keep that doggy brain sharp with daily activities such as these.
Labradoodles are known to be extremely friendly dogs. They want to make friends everywhere they go and will frequently run up to other dogs and say, "Hi! Wanna play?". This is a trait that you should definitely try to encourage. A social dog is a happy dog, so giving your Labradoodle plenty of opportunities to play with other dogs is a great idea. Building new dog relationships and having lifelong friends is just as important to your Labradoodle as it is for humans! Give one of these friend finder activities a try and don't forget to be friendly with the humans yourself!
Labradoodles were originally bred to be hypoallergenic guide dogs. The aim with the breed was to have the low shedding coat of a Poodle and the gentle demeanor of a Labrador. While the breed never quite worked out as planned and not many Labradoodles made it to the guide dog ranks, they still have some of those ideal traits that the breeders were after. So, why not train your dog as they were intended to be - as a guide dog! Now you don't need your dog to necessarily guide you, but they will benefit from being trained like a guide dog with discipline, rules and the ability to make decisions.
Labradoodles are great swimmers so bring your dog to a local swimming hole and let them go! Since the breed is also known to be high energy, this is a perfect activity to get some of that energy out in a positive way.
Labradoodles have a coat that needs to be maintained daily. Brush and wash your Labradoodle frequently at home or bring them to a doggy spa!
Labradoodles are a fantastic breed that you will adore having. They are always willing to learn, love being affectionate and social and are full of great energy which means they will love to go on walks and runs with you. Don't let your Labradoodle get bored - let these ideas for activities guide you and your dog to a happy place where you can both play, learn and make friends. Every activity is better with a Labradoodle by your side!
