Doodles seem to be the latest craze. But Why? First of all the Doodle is not a registered breed with the AKC so don’t look for papers. But that doesn’t stop the Doodle from being a very popular dog. When I say Doodle I mean anything crossed with a Poodle, i.e. Goldendoodle, Labradoodle, Bernedoodle, Double Doodle, etc. Well to start with, mix breed dogs are healthier than purebred dogs. So mixing in a Poodle gives you a much healthier dog, for example, Bernese Mountain Dogs live around 8 years, but once you mix in Poodle they live to be about 16 years. Second, because of the Poodle they don’t shed and are hypoallergenic. That alone makes this a great dog. Third, intelligence. Notice how the circus always has a Poodle in it. That’s because they are smart and easy to train. That’s also why you see so many Doodle service dogs. Why not just buy a Poodle. Yuck! Who likes Poodle personalities. That’s why you want a Poodle mix.
