What is the difference between a Labradoodle and a Cobberdog?
The Australian Cobberdog has a low to non-shedding, allergy friendly coat. They are known for the intense eye contact and intuition. They are not aggressive, highly intelligent and have a great sense of humor and love to amuse. They were recognized as a breed in development in 2012.
Cobberdogs are versatile and bred to be well-suited for Therapy, Assistance Dog, Medical Alert and Overall Family Companion. An athletic and healthy breed which loves training and excels at agility and other dog sports but is just as happy to snuggle for hours when someone’s sick, feeling down or just relaxing.
Cobber is Australia means best buddy or best friend.
While they do share some ancestry with the original Labradoodle but have been developed with new genetic and DNA technology so that they are recognized in their own right. The focus on therapy dog temperament.
If you are looking for a dog that is loving and adores being with their people, is very intelligent, allergy and asthma friendly, low to no shed coat and your best friend, then this breed is for you! These dogs don’t enjoy being left outside alone or being left alone for long periods, they need their people and are happiest when they can be with their family all the time!
They do require some grooming and have a nice wavy fleece coat that is relatively low maintenance.
