We’re all familiar with the designer doodle dog breed. In fact, being a proud owner of two labradoodle’s, I’m a little bit tired of all the raging debate that occurs with this fabulous dog. Believe me; I believe in adoption, and my next dog will be from a shelter there is no doubt in my mind, but there are peeps out there that want doodle dogs, plain and simple.

First off, we all know that the Poodle is a brainiac. When you breed a Poodle with another breed, you can pretty much guarantee a smart dog. But, depending on the other breed you never really know what you might get. We’re all familiar with the Labradoodle and Goldendoodle; they are now commonplace. That’s why I set out to find some great new combos that are family oriented love bugs, great with kids, and well – are adorable too!

OMG! This Cavapoo is off the cuteness scale. If you’re in the market for a smaller dog, look no further. The Cavapoo is a cross between a Poodle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Just like all doodle dogs, or dogs period they enjoy the comfort of home and regular exercise. The Cavapoo also loves agility training and obedience training.

To sum it up we know that a Poodle is a very smart, easy to train, great with kids and has a funny sense of humor. When we pair this amazing breed with another, we get a “designer” pup with some unknown genetic traits. As with any breed or dog, be responsible and do your homework. Make sure you know the breeder inside and out and ask to see the mom and dad. It’s a bit of a wild card and unfortunately a hit to your wallet.

Do your homework— but they sure are cute, aren’t they?

    Oh my goodness, it’s Doodle mania! These Doodles are all Doodle-tastic, but I do hope people look first for breed specific rescues to adopt, but if not find a very responsible breeder! Thanks for sharing.

    Oh I’ve got one you don’t! My friend Louise from the park is an Aussiedoodle! She is the prettiest taupe color and needs a lot of exercise. I don’t know which is worse though, these breeds existing because of no spay/neuter or being intentionally bred. Love Dolly
