Very smart and loving.
Labradoodles are a mixed breed of a Labrador Retriever and a Miniature or Standard Poodle. Like their parents, they’re intelligent, active, and wonderfully friendly family companions. Labradoodles are excellent snugglers with a shaggy or curly coat in a wide range of colors including brown, chocolate, red, gold, cream, black, and white. They’re medium-sized and quick to learn, which makes them a great choice for families or new dog owners.
Since Labradoodles are a crossbreed, their traits will vary based on their unique parents and lineage. These extroverted dogs are happiest around their family and will not hesitate to show their affection. They’re lively and energetic and usually show a wonderful gentleness around children.
Labradors and Poodles are both energetic dogs, so Labradoodles are the same. If you decide to bring one into your family, you’ll want to be sure you give her a long walk or play time every day.
Labradoodles are also very intelligent – thanks in large part to their Poodle parents. They’re easily trainable and not prone to frequent barking. The best way to help them adjust to the outside world and other dogs is to begin socialization and training early. Labradoodles are smart dogs and will pick it right up.
As with most dogs – and people! – the best way to teach is to use positive reinforcement techniques. This affectionate approach will give you a joyful and well-behaved companion.
Since they’re easy to train and have such lovable personalities, Labradoodles are a great fit for first-time dog owners. Another benefit? Like their Poodle ancestors, Labradoodles have hypoallergenic coats. To keep their coat healthy and comfortable, you’ll need to take your Labadoodle in for regular trims and brush frequently.
Labradoodles grow to a medium size. They weigh anywhere from 50 to 75 pounds. The breed is generally healthy and enjoys a typical lifespan of 10 to 14 (wonderful) years.
How dog-friendly is Colorado?
Colorado, like the land itself, has a lot of highs and lows when it comes to dog-friendliness.
Two very different studies on pet safety
Pawsafe surprisingly ranks the state as the 8th least pet-friendly in the country. The study evaluates several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. While this ranking is low, there are few areas where the state excels. Pawsafe ranked Colorado 3rd for animal welfare laws and 4th for available pet services.
Safewise conducted a similar study and came to a much different conclusion. In their analysis, they found Colorado to be the 14th most pet-friendly state. Safewise notes that only 25% of rentals in Colorado are pet-friendly, which may be why Pawsafe ranked Colorado so low.
Are cities in Colorado pet-friendly?
A WalletHub study ranked the nation’s 100 largest cities for their performance with pet-friendly criteria. In their study, two Colorado cities were among the top 20 pet-friendly cities!
The highest-ranking city was Denver, which ranked 16th. This ranking is driven by a 7th position for pet health and wellness.
SmartAsset has a similar study in which they rank the largest cities by pet-friendliness. They ranked Denver 10th for pet-friendliness. Their study found the city to have 250 dog-friendly shopping centers, among the highest in the country.
A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study shows that Denver has the 24th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.8 dog parks per 100,000 residents.
The city of Aurora, right next to Denver, has the 45th most dog parks per capita, with 1.1 per 100,000 residents.
Colorado Springs ranked 18th overall in the WalletHub study. The city scored well for pet budget and outdoor pet-friendliness.
Colorado Springs also has a high number of parks per resident. The study found Colorado Springs to be right behind Denver with 1.7 per resident.
A few more pet-friendly statistics for Colorado
Only 27% of Colorado residents own a dog. This is far below the national average of 40%. The 47% overall pet ownership rate is also well below the national average.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Colorado are German Shepherds, Goldens, and Labrador Retrievers. These are loyal, energetic working dogs, great for farming, outdoor activities, and family life.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Colorado
