Teach your Australian Labradoodle to Retrieve From the Water

Level of difficulty: Medium

The three breeds in an Australian Labradoodle are:

  • Poodle
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Cocker Spaniel

These breeds like water. They are very intelligent dogs so you can teach them pretty much anything. We have attached a You Tube link of some 11 week old Australian Labradoodle puppies learning to swim.


If that doesn’t look like fun! It reminds me of teaching my children how to swim!

Have fun with your pets!

Now to teach them to retrieve something from the water is just like what you would do on land. Give them a treat when they get to the object and give them a bunch of treats when they come back.

The important thing is to praise and reward once they bring it back even if they do not get it right back to you!
