What To Look For When You Search For A Labradoodle Puppy
The first thing you need to do is decide if you want a male or female. Male dogs have larger bodies than females, so they tend to weigh more than females.
If your budget allows, then it’s better to get a male dog because they’re usually cheaper and will produce bigger litters. However, if you don’t mind spending a little extra money, then go ahead and buy a female dog. They’ll make better companions too!
When choosing a puppy from a breeder, it’s best to choose one with good health records. The breeders will probably check their pups’ teeth before selling them off to buyers.
It’s always wise to ask questions about the parents of your pup and inquire about any problems they may have had.
You can also take into consideration the age of your pup. Most puppies are sold at around six months old, but some pups can be bought even earlier.
It depends on how much time you have and whether you want a boy or girl.
If you’re looking for a male, then look for one with a big head and round body. Males are generally larger than females, so they’ll weigh more than females too.
If you’re more concerned about health rather than size, then go for a smaller male. Females are softer and more cuddly. They’ll probably be better companions for children as well.
You can also check the coat of your pup. It should be shiny and bright, and the skin should be tight.
The nose of your pup should be a light brown or black color. This is an indication that your dog is in good health.
