As long as you show the dog affetion the dog will follow you every where. Labradoodles are very loving dogs. I think the back yard would be big enough. I would him the dog they are great dogs.

Labradoodles are great! I have only had large ones, but when I want them to bum with me they bum. If I let them out they are ready to run and lots of play. I can always get them to settle down and relax again. Labradoodles are very emotional and do want/need your love and attention. They will get that from any member of the family whenever and wherever they can.

Labradoodles adapt to the lifestyle of their owner. They love to be with their people, and if the dog is able to play with your son in the yard, take the occasional walk with you, they will be content. Since I breed them, I have 4 of my own, and they love to lay around me and sleep while I read.

The smaller the dog, sometimes the worst the dog. What I mean is this, you have to take the age and size of your son into the choice. If you ask any plastic surgeon he will tell you that when he treats patients with dog bites and most come from smaller dogs, like toy or miniature poodles (I have questioned many and they have all agreed). Look at the temperament of each breed and when you mix breeds you get both positives and negatives just like with people just like having a blond blue eyed baby. Poodles have many negatives the smaller they are. Dogs try to over come there size with more aggressive behavior. Best for kids just look at this link Poodles are at the bottom. The Miniature and Toy poodle varieties are best suited for homes with older, considerate children. Poodles have a tendency to bark excessively. Is this what you really want? I think there are a lot of better dogs.

I agree with the barking issue; my neighbor has a fenced in yard and their labradoodle barks all day long. I just think it is the poodle, I have known people with the dogs and they do bark a lot.
