What is a Low Shedding Lab?
Genetic researchers have identified the genes responsible for shedding. It is estimated that only approximately 4% of Labs carry 1 copy of the low shedding gene, while less than 1% carry both copies. It is extremely rare. To arrive at this point, we have invested a significant amount of time and money to genetically test 61 labs over the last 7 years.
Low Shedding Genes Guaranteed!
We guarantee that a Low Shedding Lab purchased from Trained Mini Labradoodle Puppies will have both possible copies of the Low Shedding gene.
We have a low shedding lab, Y, shown below. Low Shedding Labs will still shed, but light relative to the other 96% of the Lab population. Our Y sheds about 80% less than our other labs and overall has a much thinner coat. If you use the Furminator for 5-10 minutes a month on our Low Shedding Labs, the results could be a virtually non shedding lab.
