  • Poodle

    These proud, fluffy pups were originally hunting dogs in northern Europe. Poodles are extremely intelligent and easily trained dogs, and are fun to be around. They are often used in service and therapy work because of their devoted and pleasant personalities. Poodles are the only breed that come in three sizes (Standard, Miniature and Toy), and they do very well with children and other pets. They are fairly active; they enjoy swimming, running, and retrieving. Although nobody can make guarantees about allergies, Poodles are frequently known as hypoallergenic because they have human-like hair instead of fur.

  • Labradoodle

    One of the more popular breeds in the country, Labradoodles are a mix of the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle. They were created in Australia in the late 1980s to combine the outgoing, happy personality of a Lab and the non-shedding coat of a Poodle. Given they are a mixed breed, their coats can vary greatly, but they are often considered to be a good choice for those with allergies because they tend to shed less than other breeds. Labradoodles are active, intelligent dogs that love to exercise. They are easy to train and are excellent with children.
