The cross between the Scottish Terrier and the Poodle breeds is known by several names: the Scottiepoo, the Scoodle or the Scottish Shoodle. These dogs are quite clever, very loyal and they are very fond of playing. Their active nature requires in return a proper dose of daily exercises. Depending on what type their coats are, either short as part of the Scottish Terrier heritage or short coming from the Poodle, the grooming can be either a piece of cake or a bit more difficult. The Schoodle’s personality is the result of the genetic process to which both parents contribute.
The Bernese mountain dogs have been crossed with the Poodle so that the Bernedoodle breed is obtained. The aim of crossing these breeds was to combine the loyalty of the Bernese with the intelligence of the poodles. The shedding is a comfortable area, as this mix doesn’t shed or sheds very little the most, therefore cannot be a source for problems for people exposed to allergies. The Bernedoodle are wonderful companions, probably among the best and they have a stunning appearance, but this is only a bonus, not the main reason for them being bred. Their attachment to their owners is incredible, preferring to be at their side all the time, no matter the activities in which they are involved.
The aussiedoodle is a breed of companion dogs, very attached to their masters. Loving human company, they are destined to live indoors and recommended not to be kept outdoors. However, if one would want to keep an aussiedoodle outside, this can be alright, as long as it doesn’t stay solely outside. This is the same for those kept indoors, they also need to be taken outside. These dogs are mixed between an Australian Shepherd and a Poodle.
Labradoodles as a breed first emerged back in 1989 when Wally Conron, an Australian breeder, crossed a Standard Poodle and a Labrador Retriever for Guide Dogs Victoria. The aim was to get the best characteristics of both of them in one dog – to combine the trainability and gentleness of the Labrador with the Poodle’s low shedding coat. Conron wanted to use the Labrador’s abilities to be a great guide, an assistant and a therapy dog together with the fur of the Poodles so that people with allergies could also use them.
Hybrid or crossbred dogs are more popular than ever these days. People are mixing different recognized purebred dogs to obtain the so called designer puppies, with the desirable characteristics of both breeds. The Goldendoodle is such an example of cross breed, a mix between a golden retriever and a poodle. This breed was created about 20 years ago, in order to obtain a family companion dog and is very similar to the Labradoodle, another popular breed obtained about the same time. There is a lot to learn about a Goldendoodle, but we’ve listed the most important information you have to know especially if you’re looking to get on of your own.
The Cocker Spaniel Poodle mix is also known as a Cockapoo. This mixed breed can be quite unpredictable in its results, as is the case with any other mix. When this mix is not accidental, the hope is that the resulting puppies will get the best qualities of the parents. More often than not though, that’s not the case, at least not fully. From the Poodle Cocker Spaniel mix the hope is that the Cockapoo will get the coat of the poodle (hypoallergenic and it doesn’t shed) and its intelligence, while the Cocker Spaniel will contribute with the sturdy build of his body, the pleasant personality and its friendliness and mellow ways.
