Why is my Labradoodle not Curly?

Genetics. Your labradoodle's genetic makeup determines whether or not he'll have a curly coat. The F1 generation labradoodle consists of 50 percent poodle and 50 percent Labrador retriever—one parent of each breed. These dogs are typically non-shedding and may have wavy to loose curls.

Will my Labradoodle stop shedding?

Labradoodles don't “shed out” their coat in the same way. They lose their hair while it's being brushed. When you brush or comb your Labradoodle, you're getting rid of the old dead coat to make room for the new coat. ... Labradoodles of any generation will lose some of their hair as they're going from puppy to adult.
