I have no idea why choccie labs are more giddy but it is not very often that you find a nice calm one; I too thought it should be the Lab as the dam and not the Standard Poodle!

I was the same Pauline, I only had the choice of Australian Doodles which were out of our price range or to go on waiting lists with no guarantees as their lists were techinically "full" but I could be a reserve. We got Marley from a hobby breeder (with all health tests done) in Leeds, five hour overnight stay the twice we went down.

Hi,
When we had our first litter of labradoodles in 1999 we bred so that we could have a doodle as we could not find one. Back then there were very few breeders in the UK Jim Senior,Cathy Cochran(now back in USA) Carol Gowing Us and maybe a few nore we do not know but then we all used Poodle mums to Lab dads for the F1
This is only my opinion "not cast in stone" and we have had very few health problems and the vast majority of our pups have gone on to be working dogs as apposed to pets.
What is VERY IMPORTANT is that whether it is mum or dad the Labrador must b hip scored under the breed standard.
So many puppies are on Epupz a and the likes from un health tested parents as people think they can make a few quid which is what is spoiling what is a great cross and could in the future be a great breed.
W still have our original breeding poodle now long retired but fit and well how many other breeders keep there retired dogs we do not euthanase they are her for life or live with friends not unkown people
