because the Paris Poodle is
already successfully filling the
need people are trying to fill with
- We breed the stockier, calm, healthy Paris
- We are producing a truly non-shedding dog that
is cute, versatile, loyal, and an all around great
- We do not routinely dock the tails short so your
companion will LOOK like a dog.
- If you like the LOOK of the Labradoodle, cut
your Paris Poodles hair in the 'Labradoodle'
- If you want to call him a Labradoodle...... well
no one would be the wiser!
(Besides the multi-generational Labradoodle has
at least 75% - 85% Poodle usually a lot more!
|These are NOT Labradoodles!!!
These are Pure Bred Paris Poodles -
The one on the top has a long coat and
the one on the bottom has been clipped
into a short coat.
As owners of Standard Poodles we considered breeding Labradoodles.
We had heard some pretty fantastic claims about the Labradoodles.
Fortunately we found out the truth. Here are six common misconceptions:
|1. They don't shed and are allergy friendly.
- Most Lab X Standard Poodles will shed (about 1 in every litter will not shed).
- Most will aggravate allergies. It takes multi-generational breeding to breeding that reduce the allergy.
- This means most Lab X Poodle will shed and aggravate allergies and asthma like any other dog may.
If you want or need an allergy friendly companion the 2005 American Kennel Club allergy info page lists the
following dogs as allergy friendly :
Kerry Blue Terrier
|A note about shedding:
There is no way to know for sure if a cross-bred pup will not shed until it gets its adult coat
(between 12-18 months old).
Some pups appear not to shed until the adult coat comes in.
|3. Lower maintenance breed! I will not have to cut the non-shedding coat!
- The non-shedding coat needs to be cut 3-4 times a year. (Same as a Poodle)
- Regular brushing is a must or the dog will get matts and matts can be a breeding ground for parasites!
(same as a Poodle)
- As well all ear hair must be plucked so the ears won't get infected - (same as a Poodle.)
- Due to the crossing of two different breeds there can be absolutely no guarantee a cross-bred pup will
inherit the easy to train Standard Poodle personality.
- It could inherit the Lab train ability.... which is not a bad thing... Labs are not stupid! But it typically
takes more repetitions to train a Lab.
|4. They are the latest fad! A new breed!
- YES they are the latest fad! Unfortunately that means once they are no longer a fad there will be many
homeless pups in animal shelters.
- This has already begun in the USA and Australia. Many of these new 'designer dogs' are available at a
discount prices at animal shelters.
- They are not a new breed yet! The Labradoodle (or Goldendoodle) will not be considered a new breed
genetically speaking until breeding two Labradoodles together will produce off spring which all look and
act similar to all Labradoodles. A breeding must produce the same type (phenotype) and only that type
generation after generation. This is also called breeding true or having a stabilized breed.
|5. They are cute!
- The curly haired Labradoodle looks as he does because his hair is cut into the 'Labradoodle' cut.
(Anyone with a quality pair of clippers and a bit of time can learn to clip ANY curly dog into the same
cut! This is not rocket science!)
- The thing to remember is ALL puppies are cute.
- No one can tell what a cross-breed will look like when it is an adult!
- Remember most of the dogs life will be spent as an adult.
- That cute puppy stage only lasts for a few MONTHS
|6. They will be healthier because they are not inbred like purebred dogs.
- Not all Pure-Bred dogs are inbred.
- Paris Poodles are not inbred!
- Pure Bred Standard Poodles are statistically the healthiest and longest lived breed of dog.
- There is a misconception that by breeding two different breeds together you will produce a healthier
dog. Unfortunately this is not true.
- A Labradoodle can get the genetic problems common in BOTH breeds instead of just one.
One mis-informed Labradoodle breeder wrote:
"90% of all dog genetic health problems are recessive. This means that in order for a puppy to have
the health problem, both parents must carry it. By breeding two dogs of different breeds, without
similar health problems, we are breeding puppies with far less health problems! Crossbred dogs have
far less health problems, (hybrid vigor)."
The bottom line is both purebred and cross-bred dogs are susceptible to potential health problems.
The best way to reduce the risk of health problems is to not inbreed, health test breeding stock and
MOST importantly make sure your breeder does extensive 10 generation pedigree research.
A Paris Poodle!
