Newcomers should inbreed only under the advice of a successfully experienced breeder, one who knows the antecedent Labradoodles well and the risks involved.
This format of breeding does increase additional risks of birth defects.
Evisceration (puppies born with intestines external to the body), cleft palates and hydrocephalus are but a few of the birth anomalies that can occur in any breeding, but are intensified risks with inbreeding when done by those lacking adequate genetic information.
If the Labradoodles being considered have already sired one or more litters, inquire about their offspring's quality. If it is geographically feasible, visit offspring from various litters.
Note not only the excellence (or lack of merit) of their conformation, but be cognizant as well of the Labradoodles' personalities and temperaments in their individual environments.
If you are unable to personally see the "get" of the studs you are considering, request and obtain photographs of them in various growth stages.
Obtain photographs of the sire's parents and the dams of the litters whenever possible.
When reading the pedigree, make note if the stud's line is consistent for quality through repeated generations.
Inquire about any known recessives (possible drawbacks in the Labradoodle's background) and what strengths he may bring to your litter.
Make your selection of a stud Labradoodle not simply through geographical accessibility, but rather because this particular animal is the wisest choice (through his genetic makeup) for your female.
Be positive that he has much to offer your breed.
If the Labradoodle you select is being actively campaigned in field, hunting, obedience or conformation competition, he may not always be available for a physical union.
You may find that you will have to plan your breeding program around the Labradoodle's availability if you insist on a physical union. Alternative methods to a natural breeding are available and viable.
If you are perhaps someone who does not actively exhibit or belong to a local or national breed club, the assistance of an established stud owner will prove invaluable.
The Labradoodle's owners will express a continued interest in your proposed litter.
Prior to a breeding contract they should readily express a willingness to help you by answering questions and assisting with puppy placements in good homes.
Through their active participation they will have proven to be the type of stud Labradoodle owner who does not terminate the business relationship once the breeding itself has been achieved.
