Body STRUCTURE for great conformation is; top line should remain level with strong loin and croup. They are also a galloping dog; therefore flanks should rise up from a deep brisket and well sprung ribs.
Shoulders should have good angulation with firm elbows. Hindquarters should be of medium angulation with short strong hocks. Movement when trotting should be strong, with good reach and drive, giving the appearance of “going somewhere” When relaxed or at play they will prance and skim the ground lightly with easy stride.
Length to height ratio should be 12 to 10, being slightly longer in the body than legs, but still appearing compact.
Miniatures were created by breeding a Miniature Poodle to a Labrador and eventually breeding miniature Labradoodle to Labradoodle, keeping size, health, and temperament in mind. Therefore, Miniature Labradoodles were born as allergy-friendly companions.
