Barksdale Australian Labradoodles “Temperament”

Barksdale’s are noted for their wonderful Temperament.

* Extremely clever, sociable, comical and joyful. Energetic when free and quiet when handled. Should approach people in a happy, friendly manner. Keen and easy to train. Should display an intuition about emotional state of family members or handler’s current emotional state or needs.This ability to “know” is what has made the Australian Labradoodle an excellent dog for individuals with special needs.
