Labradoodle Colours

I have listed some of the more common colours of Labradoodles that we see in our breeding program. There are several other colour variations seen. If you intersted in viewing a full list of all recognised colours please click here.

Fleece

Fleece is known traditionally for it texture in being very soft to touch. While most often recognised as having a shaggy appearance some fleece coats can be curly – which is sometimes referred to as spiral fleece. Fleece coats are considered allergy friendly for people with dog hair allergy. Fleece coated labradoodles do not have a doggy odour.

Hair

Hair coats are coarser in texture and can shed to varying degrees. Most hair coat labradoodles tend to loose significantly less hair than other shedding breeds. Hair coats are not considered allergy friendly and can have a doggy odour.

Wool

The texture of wool is often referred to being similar to the feel of a lamb or sheep. However as the breed has developed the some wool coats are appearing to be softer in texture. Wool is considered to be allergy friendly for people who suffer from dog hair allergies. Wool coat labradoodles do not have a doggy odour.
