Get your wife a dog she wants and go and get yourself what you want. I agree with HNtfsh, hope is a terrible stategy for picking a hunting dog.

get her a little inside dog and you a lab and you can both be happy. There was a discussion on here not too long ago about poodles.
Who knew strippers had feelings?

Not to mention you probably could buy a good purebred retriever pup for less than a designer mutt???

My wife's roommate in college had one, and I kept it for a week when she went out of town. I would take it with me when I was training my dog and noticed it had a huge desire to retrieve, and I had it steady at heal in a few days.

While her dog had a lot of good attributes for retrieving, breeders are not focused on intelligence or hunting desire when they pick the sire/dam. The only thing they care about is that the product will be a labradoodle, and you can also run into genetic health issues.

Also I have heard a lot of people get a labrapoodle because they do not shed, or they are hypoallergenic. Do not believe them, these dogs shed like no other, and it is the only dog my wife has ever been allergic to. They are also just as big, if not bigger than a lab and they have to be groomed because their long hair gets matted around their eyes, mouth, and butt. I can not even count the number of dingle berries I cut off that dog, it was worse if it had diarrhea, and in that case you have to buzz it's backside

I loved my wife's roommates dog, but I would not recommend getting one because of all the grooming, and potential genetic problems. Trust me, come home with a lab puppy, and your wife will melt.

Whether or not any dog will hunt depends as much (or more) on the owner as it does on the dog. I've got a medium Australian Labradoodle that's got as much drive and brains as any lab I've ever had, including two 1st generation yellows (Rocket and Duke) I had out of NAFC/ FC MD's Cotton Pick'n Cropper (google him).

She has been as easy (or easier) to train, she loves to hunt, she loves water and she handles just fine in the field, she has a great nose and unlike a lab, she doesn't shed (she does pick up a lot of stickers though...). Duke shed more than any dog I've ever seen or heard of. It was unbelievable... Anyway, the key for training up a labradoodle gun dog (at least mine) is positive reinforcement (rather than punishment), eye contact and time in the field. Make it fun, don't put too much pressure on a puppy and keep early training sessions short. He or she will grow into an awesome dog if you do your job right. And if you don't know what you're doing (no shame in admitting it, many people don't), invest in a pro trainer. You'll be doing both you and the dog a favor.

I can't speak to the goldendoodles, but don't be afraid of trying out an Australian Labradoodle. I've hunted with dogs for 45 years and my dog, Maybelline "Maybe" is in the top three I've ever had (somewhere in there with "Duke" and "Frank"). Did I mention, she doesn't shed? (although
she does pick up a few stickers...)


Good luck! TC

Now I see this original question was asked 5years ago... Guess he already decided... I would ad, that American Labradoodles (F1 50/50 lab/poodle) do shed. Australian Labradoodles (F1b 25/75 lab/poodle) don't shed at all or very little (although, again... They do pick up a few stickers.....)

But did look at this and couldn't find anything on their purpose or hunting lines:
