Labradoodle Duck Hunting Dog

Postby blacklabs165 » Fri Oct 29, 2010 10:52 pm

Could someone train a Labradoodle to be an efficient duck hunting dog, or are they to stupid?

?? Not sure, I would be curious to know that too...I would think if the poodle was from hunting lines as well as the lab there is potential there???

I have heard of some hunting before. Poodles and Labradors are both very smart and bred for retrieving game from the water. Chances are that if the blood lines have hunters in them, should be possible.

It has been done... The problem with any mutt is that you don't know what genes you are getting. You may get the hypoallergenic gene and the retrieving gene, one, the other, or neither... Poodles were originally water retrievers, but that was so long ago the odds are not in you favor.

Never seen a labrodoodle but i know there is a guy in my area that breeds and trains large poodles for waterfowl. A few guys i know have hunted with him and said that the dogs are amazing.

There is a guy from another forum that has been documenting his training of his wife's Labradoodle. He posted up some pictures from this weekends hunt and at 10 months old this pup was retrieving geese and ducks. I don't think I can link to another forum here though.

Thanks for the comments. I have a labradoodle and this dog loves nothing more than to swim and I figured that it would be a good sport for him. One of the biggest problems is that he is 3 years old and like you guys were saying I dont know of his parents hunting background.

I keep insisting we get a black lab to train to retrieve. My wife desperately wants a labradoodle, insisting that I can train it to do the same. I keep dreaming of a English bred lab though.

Will her idea work? :help:

Anything with "oodle" in its name is just wrong! To breed it with a lab is an insult to labs!

Tell the wife is she can find a litter of Labradoodles where the sire and dam are from hunting lines with performance titles (proof they can both WORK) in the field...you'll consider it.

If she can't - you have to go Black lab (which does have these things) so that the pup you raise and dog you train will have the genetic make-up to be a fine gun dog and household pet.

If she can find a working doodle line bred to hunt/work/perform...she deserves one. Hearsay doesn't count - need validation.

I just googled up some pictures of labradoodles, are you going to cut those little fur shaped balls around their legs? :yes:

I can see it at the boat ramp now "Sure is a mighty perty dog ya have thar boy" (banjo music starts playing at this point). I would have to get many, many concessions from my wife before facing the public humiliation. Only visiting the inlaws every third year,never having to go to a ballet or opera for my entire life,poker night with the buddies etc. Good luck.

Or get the labradoodle, train him up real well (both are working class dogs so it shouldn't be too much of a PITA) and make sure and show everybody pics of your dog making bad@$$ retrieves! I catch a lot of slack for having a mixed breed, but they can do the job too. Remember the old saying, happy wife = more duck hunting!

It depends on the seed they are mixed from. Genetics is genetics.

Doodles are getting really popular around AR. There are a decent amount of them that hunt.
