  1. I don't think selective breeding should still be a practice tbh that being said in case of the labradoodle its actually beneficial (more beneficial then just pumping out another generation of xyz) for the dog so agreed on that point.

    The only thing I take issue with is the emotional manipulation (which I'm sure you're not doing on purpose and if so without any mal intent).. But pleeeease dont center the video around the dog and ask him questions like "do you think you're a Frankenstein…"

    Anyways you can disregard anything I say if you wish to do so it's just my opinion and I couldn't hold it back. – take care

  2. I have a 2yr old labradoodle who had some issues with aggression as a puppy but with training and patience he is such an amazing dog. My groomer always comments how I do such a great job with keeping him mat free. He also goes to a small doggie daycare where they love my guy. So I think it’s the breeding and just owners in general. Research research.

  3. I have second and third hand dogs. I really do not understand none have ever caused a problem that a little love and kindness did not remedy. The household is composed one mini poodle (blind and had major surgery for breast cancer but does just with the house and yard.) One shitz su who was brutally teased as a very young puppy but has been with me for ten years and is now a happy and loving little dog. A great Pyrenees/standard poodle mix; guess he was just too much for first owner but has been a good guardian and a sweet heart. Then the sammypoo. Who was ten yo when he was given to me.guess he likes it here; his health has vastly improved and is a happy dog. And lastly a beautiful corgi; too much for the old lady that had him but the funny part is i am older than she. For the most part we are designer dogs and we are happy and no problems to speak of.

  4. My dad brought home an English Cocker Spaniel from a puppy mill because of Lady and the Trap. She was the worst dog I've ever had. She bit me 100s of times scaring my ear, she bit my 5 year old sister who had to get stitches and has a scar now. She tore up our house, she never got potty trained and she was afraid of everything. She was very fear aggressive! Puppy mills should be banned!! Meanwhile my Aussie Husky is so amazing! She's a superstar! But she was also raised in a loving home from birth!

  5. Yes, the issue is Puppy Mills, because they keep the mother and father dogs in cages and just use them up. People should take one extra step by contacting dog breed associations for ethical breeders and waiting for a healthier pup.

  6. We had a Labradoodle named Benji ,he was huge,he was an F1, he lived till 13, his heart got weak but he was still living life happily till he passed , he loved swimming, loved going places , good obedience, you must care for their skin and coat , and proper grooming,especially if they get wet or swim ..
    They are good dogs like any other can be .
    Now i have a Cane Coxer .. Cane corso / boxer cross, beautiful dogs, very intelligent, gentle,brave. They too are a designer dog, my Bella saved us from 2 bears last month 🐾🐾🐕✌❤

  7. A labradoodle was a suggested dog breed someone in my family recommended i get but one thing I didn't know was if the grooming would be manageable. But my heart was set on getting a Shar pei anyways despite being a challenge with allergies and other challenges shar pei may bring. Biggest problem has been his ear infections but i believe i found the culprit. It was chicken in his old food brand hes been great for nearly 12 weeks now. I don't know i like the challenge i guess and i would move Mountains for my puppy to keep him healthy.

  8. Hazel is a well behaved girl. We have a labradoodle and he's a spaz. Got kicked out of several training classes because he was distracting all the other students. Ours also submissive pees and pees when excited. I've heard a lot of other doodles do this. He's 2 and a half and still hasn't outgrown this. I suspect ours was from a "puppy mill" but our breeder didn't actually home the mom and dad. She had placed her breeding dogs in regular homes and they would do all the work (in exchange for a "free" dog) and she would just collect the cash for breeding. The breeder would also place the dogs based on their temperment. We got the complete opposite than what we were promised based on her 13 years of "expertise".

  9. I had a 3rd gen labradoodle. She ate my entire livingroom furniture and was stubborn as a mule. She also had Addison's disease diagnosed at age 2. She also had other autoimmune disorders, including losing her toenails from a rabies vaccine. She passed at 9 years of age while being treated for possible leukemia. I loved her and miss her every day even with all her issues.

  10. I agree . Only thing I don't understand is… let's say you love a particular dog breed and you want to have a litter or two of puppies… how can you predict the puppies will be healthy / free of hereditary disease? If you really can't predict this, how would a puppy mill breeder know?

  11. My bull mastiff mated with a gordon setter (not on purpose) and her puppies are the sweetest short-hair athletic brindle with a beautiful healthy balanced build. I kept one daughter, my sister took one male. The mom and her daughter make their own music with rhythm and howling harmonies. The daughter sheds like crazy even though she has no undercoat and short fine hair.

  12. Yes. All dogs do their best always. I have a standard poodle and I love her. She is a dog and I short clip her to let her enjoy being a dog. My daughter breeds Labradoodles I know a friend who has a gorgeous labradoodle. Wonderful dog. Please before you think of getting one. Know that clipping is a must. 🐩🐩🐩🤗

  13. A dog is only as "bad" as its owner! Tula & all her Labradoodle relatives are welcomed at my place anytime.. today we are serving up egg salad and bacon burritos! My doggies fave ❤️
    Join us 4 lunchy munchy? We use real chunks of thick sliced all natural bacon.. it's a lovely meal or a tastey treat.. however you're dishin' it!

  14. I read that the guy who started the breed regrets it because of the ill health of these Dogs! Also, as a Vegan, I hate designer Dogs being bought cause its fashionable when so many Dog's need rehousing! People treat Dog's like a commodity!

  15. My Labradoodle was born July 29, 2008. She is an angel. Not once has she ever poo'd or pee'd in the house. She is very obedient, loves all people, and loves to play with other dogs. She even loves to take a bath. I could never find a better dog.

  16. Our 3 year old Labradoodle is the love of our lives. Best disposition, super healthy and balanced. We got him from a reputable breeder. My husband is allergic to dander. I think people love dogs not shedding but caught unprepared for grooming needs. They need to be groomed very often. many just shave them down to save money. Sad. Sometimes people just want a cheap doodle and buy from swap meet, backyard breeder. They then complain the dog sheds, or looks like a monster. These “breeders” are there to make quick money without regard to the health/integrity of the breed.

  17. I have a labradoodle with straight hair, so not all of them have curly hair. Her coat is easy to maintain. I also have a goldendoodle with curly hair, and a standard poodle (he looks [has the same color of hair] as the dog in this video). All three of my dogs came from responsible breeders, and all three are very sweet.

  18. I don’t agree with why he bred the two breeds. Poodles are very smart and could have been trained to be a guide dog. Poodles are an even better choice. Having had both breeds. Labs are prone to go off on adventures so you have to keep your eye (if you’re blind hard to do) on them. Poodles really take well to humans and children. They are devoted to their humans and so smart that they could probably do more tasks than a lab. What everyone doesn’t know is that poodles were bred to retrieve water foul just like labs. They are not French but German.

  19. Let's not forget the Puggle (pug/beagle mix). They are everywhere! When I worked at an animal shelter years ago, we would get the "ugly" ones where the breeding went awry for whatever reason. Their snouts were too long, had a severe underbite with lower fangs exposed, etc…. It's very sad, really. They were disposed of at the shelter from the "suspected" backyard breeder as inferior because no one wanted to buy them. We also had a couple of Labradoodles in our neighborhood over the years and they were so sweet and friendly.

  20. The issue is not about how sweet and adorable these dogs are. All puppies are sweet and adorable. The matter is about the millions of dogs that are suffering and dying from the genetic defects that are bred into at least half of these animals due to ignorance of the genetics involved in breeding. The physical genetic defects are not the only problem. There are terrible temperament problems that develop that are not characteristic of the original breed.
    It’s not the dog’s fault. It’s the fault of people dabbling in something that they know nothing about. If you don’t understand the very complicated science of genetics (and most people do not) you do not understand the problem with “designer”animals or of any purebred animal. A purebred dog is a very meticulously genetically designed animal. There is nothing “normal” about them! Many, many generations of dogs have been used to create just one breed. Many pups are rejected from the breeding program in order to produce a healthy genetically sound animal. THEN someone who loves dogs decides that they want to breed them as a hobby and will get ahold of a male and a female purebred and allow them to mate. They know nothing about the genetic background of those animals or what genetic weakness they carry. Those perfectly adorable dogs produce adorable puppies that many times have received the genetic weaknesses of both parents multiplied! Then those pups are sold to more irresponsible people who want to breed them! Usually a backyard breeder has obtained pet quality stick to begin with. They were supposed to be just that….pets… not parents!
    A responsible purebred breeder has the history of every animal that they have allowed to breed as well as the health history of the pups produced. Yet there are still possibilities of defects. The breeding program is constantly being reevaluated. Sometimes new blood is brought in IF the genetic background is clean. Just when they think that the line is very predictable some recessive gene rears its head! What you see on the surface of a dog many times has nothing to do with the millions of genes inside it. People have no idea what genetic weaknesses that animal carries by simply looking at the surface of that animal. Put two animals together that carry the same weakness and you have created a lot of pain and suffering for the person who buys the pup and the puppies that carry more of those weaknesses which will be passed on to future generations. Even the very best looking purebred can carry genetic weaknesses that can be passed on to future generations. That is why breeders must keep track of their breeding stock.
    The backyard breeder and the puppy mill breeder know nothing about the genetic backgrounds of the dogs they breed. They know nothing about the genes that are in the dogs that they produce. They are creating animals that not only look less and less like the original breed but that carry genetic weaknesses and defects that future puppies will suffer from.
    A RESPONSIBLE and knowledgeable purebred breeder knows the genetic background of their breeding stock going back many generations. Puppies that are not up to the standard are removed from the breeding program and are sold as pets with a spay/neuter contract. They are not to produce puppies. A responsible breeder keeps track of the development of all their pups. They watch not only for issues with the outside appearance of their animals but also any health problems that may develop. Every purebred breed is prone to specific genetic weaknesses and it is the responsibility of the breeder to do everything possible to remove that weakness from their line. Even the most expensive breeding stock that is found to have any defect must be removed from the program. That is why more pups are sold as pets than as breeding and show stock.
    This is a costly process. A purebred pup bought from a responsible breeder is going to cost more than a pup bought from a backyard breeder (although pet stock costs considerably less) but buying from a responsible purebred breeder means that you have bought a pup from someone who actually cares about the breed and is not creating genetic weaknesses and defects.
    Do designer dog breeders study the genetic background of the dogs that they are using as breeding stock? No, because no reputable purebred breeder would sell their breeding stock to be used for such a purpose so the “designer” dog breeder is already starting out with lower quality breeding stock. The animals may be very nice looking and seem happy but that has little to do with the health issues that they carry.
    So you have a happy healthy designer dog? Good for you! But what about the others? What about the other half of the equation that did not win the genetic spin of the wheel?! You have what you want but there are other animals out there suffering from horrible disease and defects and that will die horrible deaths because they lost that genetic spin that their breeders did?!
    If you want a designer dog go to your local shelter! There are plenty of them there that people have discarded because they did not want to spend the time involved in training them and grooming them.
    If you want a purebred contact the best breeder association dog club of your area. Your state will have regional clubs. The AKC website will list clubs. Their websites usually will have links to lists of recommenced breeders. Keep researching. Ask for references. If they don’t want to give references then find someone else.
    Most breeders usually have pet stock that is sold for less than show and breeding stock. They are lovely pups that just should not be bred. You would not notice the difference but someone who shows dogs would. If no pups are available at the moment there are usually waiting lists for puppies. Beware of breeders with huge breeding programs. That should be a red flag right away. Remember that most puppy mills register their pups. Registration has nothing to do with the quality of the animal. Many puppy mills register with the most well known registration associations. It is the association’s breeding clubs that you want to get in touch with. Puppy mills have nothing to do with the breed clubs because they care nothing about the well being of the breed.
    This is not about the dogs. The animals are the victims of unscrupulous people and just plain uninformed people. Be informed and start doing something to save these poor creatures from more suffering at the hands of the greedy and the uninformed.

  21. I don’t like the designer dog concept mostly because I work in animal rescue and so many dogs die in shelters everyday because of overpopulation causing homelessness. Mixed breeds, purebreds, etc. I don’t believe in buying…only adopting.

  22. Excellent thoughts on this subject, thankyou for educating folks who just don’t know and have been given the wrong information I’m so proud to say I am a veterinarian technician and watching the drs channel l just keep on learning and I’m a old dog lol thankyou Dr.

  23. I'm pushing 49 and have had dogs the better part of my adult life. I have had all kinds of dogs ranging from beagles to Aussies, German shepherds to Eskimo Spitz, Maltese to boarder collies and I have my share of mutts too. Currently I have an Australian Labradoodle, a Sheepadoodle and a Maltese. I have to say that my doodles have been the most entertaining and loving dogs I have ever owned. The original breeder is 100% wrong in his assessment of the breed. I am happy to see that this video isn't what it first appeared to be. I was ready to rip into Doc Jones. I am glad he didn't make me be "that guy." lol

  24. Both breeds have “owned” me! Standard Poodle was a 2y/o rescue that lived to 16! Our Lab we had got as a puppy, she lived to 15! I’m a widow now and pet-less for the first time in 45 years. I have a friend in “rescue” and she’s working on my next love muffin…a Labradoodle! Can’t wait! 😊

  25. Don't blame the Dog! It's the Frankenstein Owner! I have one next door that owns two. He puts no effort into training either one of these dogs. They are Big, Skulls like a Buffalo, Bite, Barking. To give it one statement, They are unruly and just like the neighbor!!!

  26. As a groomer, I can see what the original designer is saying.

    There are so many other breeds being bred with poodles to make a hypo allergenic dog. The new owners are not being realistic with the grooming needs and are coming into the shops matted to the skin. This is so heartbreaking as a groomer. Think about this, if a dog is matted to the skin, obviously they are not used to being brushed. This dog that is not used to being brushed, has to stand still while using tools that have blades on them, it’s never good. What I have seen over and over is that the owner wants the dog fluffy, but for the most humane thing is to start over and shave it down. I have tried to use the longest blade, as that can not go between the skin and Matt, you have to try the next shorter blade. This is never a pretty cut, but for the safety and the reality of the dogs horrible condition, the only option.
    I wish so bad that people would be realistic with what kind of dog they can realistically care for.
    Another wish I have for dogs is that people would consider grooming their own dog. Grooming your own dog is so rewarding and a great way to educate family and friends as to what is involved.
