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 New Mexico?
New Mexico has some room to grow when it comes to its animal-friendly laws and accommodations. On the plus side, a few New Mexico cities are super dog-friendly, and the state is a great destination for visitors traveling with their pups.
Let’s look at a few studies into New Mexico’s dog-friendly rankings.
Animal advocacy group Pawsafe ranked New Mexico as the 35th most pet-friendly state of all 50 states. They examined several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. Unfortunately, they didn’t rank New Mexico very well for its animal welfare laws, which address things like animal abuse, neglect, or even fighting.
Another study by a safety review website, Safewise, actually ranked New Mexico last of all 50 states. The ranking has a lot to do with animal welfare laws and access to pet services.
Overall, we’re hopeful that New Mexico makes some improvements for its dogs and dog lovers!
Are cities in New Mexico pet-friendly?
Yes! The good news is that New Mexico has some great pet-friendly destinations. A study by Wallethub ranked the 100 largest cities in the country by their pet-friendliness. Here’s how New Mexico’s biggest city stacked up.
Albuquerque is the biggest city in New Mexico with a little over half a million people. The city ranked very well at 14th out of 100 cities.
They placed 16th for pet budget and 7th for outdoor pet-friendliness. The city lagged behind a bit for pet health and wellness, ranking 83rd.
A separate study by the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shares great information about dog parks. They published a ranking of the 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks per capita. Albuquerque ranked well in the 13th spot with 2.4 dog parks per 100,000 people.
Two of the best places to bring your pup to in Albuquerque are ABQ Trolley Co. and USS Bullhead Park.
