Poodles are incredible dogs that commonly win best-in-show across all competitions. They come in three size varieties and can be as big as 20 inches to as small as 7. Their long necks, straight back, short tails and large legs are easily recognizable to any dog lover. Although they’re associated with France, they’re actually of German origin that goes back to the 1800s. The Poodle is well known for its intelligence and easy training.

Poodles are lively, fun-loving, and active dogs that thrive on attention. These attractive qualities make it clear why so many breeders cross with Poodle. The last 15 years have seen a surge of Poodle mixes, commonly known as Doodles, becoming the most popular crossbreed for pet owners. So what’s the best Poodle mix? Let’s find out!


Poodle Mixed Breeds

There are dozens of Doodle types available, and some are easier to find than others. The following 61 different Poodle mixes are a combination of both famous and bizarre. In the comprehensive guide below, we look at the best poodle mixes for just about any family, as well as what you can expect by bringing one into your home.



Breeds: Labrador and Poodle

The Labradoodle is the most famous and quite arguably, one of the best poodle mixes ever created. Labradoodles are very affectionate and love attention. They also don’t mind showing it, as they’ll physically jump on your or slap your hand for a pet. Their short fur makes them easy to groom, but they still need regular grooming to avoid matting. Baths may be required if you choose not to brush them. Labradoodles love water, so bathing will be easy.

They have a lot of energy and should be walked once a day. Make sure to go outside and play fetch with them, and give them lots of praise for learning a trick. The yellow labradoodle is often mistaken for the Goldendoodle.


Bichon Frise Poodle Mix

Breeds: Bichon Frise and Poodle

The Bidoodle (also the Doodle Frise and Bichoodle) are a mix of Bichon Frise and Poodle. They’re little balls of energy that love to be cuddled and held. Although they can be jumpers, their tiny size and big personalities are great for children and small apartments.

They are very vocal and love to bark, whine, and whimper and are prone to separation anxiety. Like other small breeds, they have an issue potty training because they have tiny little bladders. They’re also likely to anxiety pee.

Still, they are an unaggressive breed that just wants to love you by licking you to death. They make great lap dogs! Just try to avoid access to treats when training, as they can quickly become overweight.



Breeds: Golden Retriever and Poodle

Another popular poodle mix, these beautiful dogs can be over 80 pounds. Toy Goldendoodles can be as small as 10 pounds. This Goldendoodle doesn’t shed and requires frequent grooming to keep their fur clean.

Goldendoodles are high energy and love family homes that have a large backyard for space to play. Puppies will have issues playing with children, as they will often jump and knock over youngsters. They simply don’t know their own strength!

While typically healthy, they do suffer from hip and joint issues. It’s best to give them the proper food and hip and joint supplements, so they are less likely to develop them.  Goldens are also sometimes mixed with the Toy version to create the miniature version of the Goldendoodle.



Breeds: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle

The most searched Doodle type in the US, the Cavapoo is a spectacular poodle mix that combines the Poodle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They love to play fetch, love to run, but most of all – they enjoy your attention!  They are often mistaken for the Cavachon.

Hitting 25 pounds at most, they are easy to care for and play with, but with their trickier personality, training can be difficult — Cavapoos need a little bit of grooming to keep clean.

Cavapoos have a hard time being left alone and are prone to separation anxiety. They love larger families that can give them the attention they need, but with their cuteness, we’re sure they’ll find love in large portions!



Breeds: Old English Sheepdog and Poodle

The Sheepadoodle is a poodle mix that combines the high focus Poodle with the work-driven Sheepdog. This combination makes the “hard to train for family life” Sheepdog easier to get along with. They are often found larger and can hit 30 pounds after four months.

Sheepadoodles love children and other dogs, but have to be trained to play gently as their large frame makes it easy for them to knock anyone over. They will likely have a herding instinct if the Doodle favors their Sheepdog parent, so giving them a job to do will be great for their mental health!

You need to brush them daily and often, as their long fur commonly attracts debris and dust. Similar to other big dogs, they are susceptible to hip and joint issues.

Shih Poo

Shih Poo

Breeds: Shih Tzu and Poodle

Shih Poos are Poodle mixes that can be stubborn due to their Shih Tzu ancestry, but this can easily be trained out thanks to their Poodle parent. This doesn’t mean they don’t need daily training though, however, once the training clicks with the Shih Poo they’re well behaved.

They aren’t as eager to please as the other Doodles and will be more interested in different smells than your attention. The Shih Poo doesn’t do well in large families or with small children and are prone to pick favorites.

Shih Poos don’t need much activity or playtime and prefer to laze around all day with their pet parent. They are perfect for anyone looking for a low impact dog. However, they aren’t good with new dog owners as they take a bit of patience.



Breeds: Schnauzer and Poodle

The Schnoodle is a Poodle mix that crossbreeds the Schnauzer and Poodle. Breeding one purebred parent of each won’t necessarily give you a Schnoodle, as it takes a few generations to reach the desired mix. The fluffy coat of the Schnoodle is a balanced combination of wavy and incredibly soft.

It’s difficult to pin down the general disposition of a Schnoodle because of the intense breeding that goes into making the “perfect” dog. However, they are usually not aggressive and don’t need a lot of socialization at a young age.

They are very protective of their owners, and they need a lot of room to jump and play. A big backyard is a must for them.



Breeds: Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle

This familiar Poodle mix stems from the Yorkie and the Poodle. They are a rambunctious breed that needs early training and a lot of attention. Yorkipoos share the temperament and energy of most other small dogs.

Yorkipoos are a very vocal breed and typically live longer lives. Make sure to socialize them when they’re puppies, or you might have behavior issues when they’re older. Still, they are very active social dogs who love attention, but their Yorkie side can lead them to be standoffish.

Their coats vary between curly and straight, and different fur will mean different grooming requirements.



Breeds: Pomeranian and Poodle

The extremely fluffy Pomeranian and the curly-haired Poodle make this cute Poodle mix. What makes them unique is that they do shed, which means their undercoat needs to be brushed regularly. They are never any more massive than 12 pounds. These pups may cost a little more than some of the other breeds, due to the expensive nature of the parent breed, the Pomeranian.

They do well in apartments and small homes. Pomapoos don’t need a large yard, as they require little exercise. However, they do need a lot of attention and will bark excessively if not appropriately trained.

Pomapoos can be aggressive and prone to resource guarding. If you have kids, it may be a good idea to pass them up. Pomapoos do well with single parents, but larger families will run into problems. They don’t like to share.


Poodle Pekingnese

Breeds: Pekingese and Poodle

Peekapoos are an often debated mix between a Pekingese and a Poodle. They usually have no undercoat, so they’re easy to groom and brush and are incredibly loving. However, they suffer from an abundance of health issues.

Two-thirds of all Pekingese suffer from Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome. This is then passed on to the Peekapoo, which makes it difficult for them to breathe. There is no cure, and thus, they will have a lifetime of labored breathing, pain, and won’t be able to handle extreme temperatures.

You’ll need to be well educated on health issues, and they are poor with children. Their body, unfortunately, works against them in almost every aspect.

Saint Berdoodle

Saint Berdoodle

Breeds: Saint Bernard and Poodle

The Saint Bernard and Poodle combination makes for a lovable and loyal breed. They are affectionate, happy dogs that love to please. Expect the Saint Berdoodle to be large once it grows up, as they can hit over 100 pounds easily.

They’re going to have thick, curly fur that needs a lot of grooming attention. If you live in a warmer climate, I would recommend shoring them. With that said, they love colder weather and will have a lot of energy to jump around in the snow.

Saint Berdoodles are big babies who are easy to train, love all people and animals, and will sit on you or paw you to get your attention.



Breeds: Wheaton Terrier and Poodle

Probably one of the least common mixes, the Whoodle is an interesting combination between a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and a Poodle. Due to this, there isn’t a large enough sample size to know general temperament, health issues, and size.

Wheaten Terriers are great family dog that are dependable, friendly, and easy to train. Poodles also train well and are overall intelligent, so it’s likely the Whoodle is rewarding to teach. You will most likely have to groom the Whoodle daily, as they have thick coats.

Finding one will be difficult, and you’ll likely have to travel across the country to even hope to get one! If you do find one, grab them, you may not get that chance again.


Bernedoodle Puppy

Breeds: Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle

The Bernedoodle is a very easy-going combination of the Poodle and the Bernese Mountain Dog. You’ll mostly find this breed in their larger size, which averages over 80 pounds. Their coats are unique and often come in double or tri-color.

They are very energetic and love to play. Bernedoodles can be clumsy, but they are personal. This can make them challenging to train because they have a difficult time focusing. Grooming

will be a daily task, or you risk them getting mats and tangles.

Bernedoodles are cuddly and physical – they’ll be your giant lap dog! Keep in mind that they love to wrestle and play tug of war, so make sure you train them to be gentle if you have other pets of small children.



Breeds: Newfoundland and Poodle

A big dog with a big heart, the Newfypoo is the combination of the Newfoundland and the Poodle. They are incredibly affectionate and require a lot of playtime, a lot of space, and a great deal of attention.

The Newfypoo can hit sizes up to 150 pounds, and you won’t see any toy variants of this breed. They love to engage with strangers and new dogs if they’re properly socialized when they’re young. They are loyal to their family but require a lot of social stimulation.

A big dog means a big coat, which means a lot of work. Because it’s a Doodle, you can expect less fur to manage than their Newfie parent. It’s important to regularly groom and wash them to keep their fur clean.


Scoodle Dog Outdoors

Breeds: Scottish Terrier and Poodle

Mixing a Scottish Terrier and a Poodle results in a fun loving and friendly mix called the Scoodle. The Scottish Terrier is a small terrier breed, which can carry a wheaten, dark or brindle coat. Scottish Terriers are friendly but mischievous. They are sometimes mistaken for a Schnauzer due to their similar appearance and temperament.

The Scottish Terrier Poodle mix is a bundle of fun and can thrive in many different living situations. While they need around 45-60 minutes of daily exercise, they can live in apartments and smaller living quarters if sufficiently exercised. Scoodles are great with kids and do very well in a multi-pet household. Both parent breeds have single coats, so you can expect grooming and shedding to be easier to manage with this mix than with others. Expect the Scoodle to live anywhere from 10 to 14 years, depending on the health of their parents.



Breeds: West Highland Terrier and Poodle

The West Highland Terrier (or Westie) combined with the Poodle create a feisty, high energy dog that needs a lot of attention and play. The Westiepoo gets distracted very easily, though, but that curiosity and drive make them fun to exercise.

Westiepoos have a high prey drive, and thus have trouble playing nice with other animals. They are unlikely to attack them, but they are fond of chasing smaller dogs or cats, which can lead to anxiety for the other animals.

Their coats are generally easy to take care of, but their fur length and texture depends on the dog. It’s essential to watch the Westiepoos weight, as they’re susceptible to rapid weight gain.



Breeds: Boxer and Poodle

The high energy Boxer mixed with the focused Poodle to make the Boxerdoodle. They are easy to train, affectionate dogs that like to get physical with you. This makes them willing to play and eager to please; you can expect a lot of movement from them.

Boxerdoodles have a generally happy temperament and vary in size. It’s possible to find a smaller Boxerdoodle, but they’re rare. They like to roll around for fun, are great with children, large families, and require a lot of walking.

Hip, joint, and heart problems are common, like any other large dog. Their coat also depends on what parent has preference: the clean coat of the Boxer, or the curly coat of the Poodle.


Chipoo Dog

Breeds: Chihuahua and Poodle

This newer breed is a mix of a toy Poodle and Chihuahua, and is one of the many different types of chihuahua mixes. Similar to the Chihuahua, the Chipoo has a huge personality and a lot of heart. They’re full of energy, love to play and socialize although they do require a lot of training to stamp out their stubborn, and loud nature.

Chipoos are friendly dogs that require a lot of socialization to be comfortable with bigger dogs. They can still be defensive if provoked, so regular grooming and touching will help them be more comfortable.

They need at least an hour of playtime and training every single day to keep them from being bored. Get ready for a lot of barking and howling!



Breeds: Maltese and Poodle

People with smaller homes and apartments will find the Maltese and Poodle mix a great addition to their lives. They travel well, adapt well in new environments, and have few if no aggression issues so. They make a great friend to everyone. Because the Maltipoo looks so similar to the standard Maltese, they are often confused for one another.

Keep in mind the Maltipoo require a lot of attention, and this can’t be emphasized enough. They are very active, social dogs that can’t be left alone for long periods. They love to be with their pet parent, so keep them with you as often as possible.

Setting up a play area for the Maltipoo will make them very happy, as they’ll have their own space they can feel comfortable in.


Cockapoo Dog

Breeds: Cocker Spaniel and Poodle

This smaller breed of Doodle is a combination of the Cocker Spaniel and Poodle. The Cockapoo is one of the earliest Doodle mixes to appear and date back to the 1950s. They require a lot of attention and interaction.

Their small body and silky fur are really popular with families. They socialize well, get along with other dogs and cats, and love to smell and chase anything they see. It’s essential to play a lot with your Cockapoo to get their energy out. Cockapoos are prone to blindness and dementia as they get older, but most of them tend to live long and healthy lives.


Huskydoodle Outdoors

Breeds: Siberian Husky and Poodle

When you adopt a Huskydoodle, you are getting an energetic, and family-friendly pup! Siberpoos are crafty dogs, and they can get into mischief if left unattended for long periods of time. When you combine one of the smartest dogs on the planet, with one of the most active, it means you’ll need to be a strong leader, and engage in regular training to keep this pup entertained.

Siberpoos can look completely different from one another, depending on the litter. Some Huskydoodles will take more after their Husky parent in looks, while others will look more like a poodle. Usually, this doodle dog will end up looking like both parents, somewhere in the middle. You’ll want a bigger yard for a Huskydoodle, or access to a larger outdoor space to exercise them frequently.


Rottie Poodle Mix

Breeds: Rottweiler and Poodle

Rottles combine the beautiful Rottweiler with the Standard Poodle for a fluffier looking Rottie. Rottles are great for someone looking for a dog that may have a more aggressive guardian instinct than a Poodle. These pups are generally friendly, but can be more reserved with strangers due to their Rottweiler parent.

They are great with kids provided they are socialized from a young age. Rottles are better than their Rottweiler parent for dog owners that may have an allergy to pet dander. While the Rottle is not hypoallergenic, they will shed less than their Rottie parent. Rottles will grow in size, and it’s not uncommon to see them top 80 pounds, sometimes crossing the 100 pound barrier for males. You’ll want room for your Rottle to roam, and need to dedicate a good chunk of time to properly train them.


Small Bordoodle Puppy

Breeds: Border Collie and Poodle

The Bordoodle is a friendly dog, that blends the family-friendly Border Collie with the energetic and fun-loving poodle. Bordoodles come in a variety of different sizes, and their full growth potential will depend if their parent is a toy or standard poodle. Most Bordoodles are bred with a standard-sized poodle, so you can expect a medium-sized dog, that will grow to around 30 pounds or more.

Bordoodles will shed less than their Border Collie parent, but more than their Poodle parent. This mix is VERY intelligent, so start with obedience training from a young age. They are also extremely active, so you’ll want to have a bigger yard, or access to open space for your Bordoodle to get energy out through the day. They are generally great with kids, and other pets in the house.


Bolonoodle Dog

Breeds: Bolognese and Poodle

Another fluffy white dog breed, the Bolonoodle is a doodle mix between the Bolognese and the Poodle. This cute & cuddly little poodle mix is full of energy and love. The Bolonoodle usually has a Toy Poodle parent, but can also have a Standard Poodle parent that’s on the “smaller” side. They are affectionate pups that get extremely attached to their owners.

Because of their attachment, they can also develop separation anxiety. For this reason, we recommend you crate train your Bolonoodle, and start at an early age. They are great with kids and other animals, provided they are properly socialized as puppies. The Bolonoodle is a wonderful overall family pup.



Breeds: Weimaraner and Poodle

Want a pup that looks like a Labradoodle, but maybe a little more interesting? The Weimardoodle can fit the bill! These pups are often mistaken for a Labradoodle, but you can usually tell them apart by the Weimardoodle’s silvery coat and their yellow, pale blue, or grey colored eyes. Weimardoodles are a doodle dog with tons of energy, and they will keep you running all over the place for hours on end.

If you are thinking of adopting a Weimardoodle, you’ll want to make sure that you have plenty of backyard space. The Weimardoodle has tons of energy and enjoys being outside to run their energy off. It’s best to give them at least 45-60 minutes of outside exercise daily in order to keep them from developing destructive habits in the home. These pups will definitely keep themselves occupied if you don’t. They will typically weigh around 60 pounds and are longer, leaner dogs.


Poogle Mixed Breed

Breeds: Beagle and Poodle

The Poogle crosses the Beagle with the Poodle for a combination that’s becoming more popular. Beagles are already a favorite dog with both hunters and families alike. So it only made sense to cross them with a Poodle in an effort to reduce their shedding habits. Beagles shed quite a bit, so crossing them with the Poodle was a successful effort to reduce pet dander for dog allergy sufferers.

Poogles will range in size, but will usually be medium-sized dogs. They will weigh between 30 and 45 pounds when fully grown, and are intelligent dogs who train easily. They are a great mix for first-time dog owners. Their Beagle parents make them eager to please their owners, while their Parent helps to boost their IQ. The Poogle is a great all-around dog that will do well in just about any family, and in any living situation.



Breeds: Corgi and Poodle

The Corgipoo is a lovely mix of either a Cardigan Welsh Corgi or Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Corgipoos were bred in order to create a smaller companion dog that sheds less than their Corgi parent. These pups will usually inherit some of the Corgi’s breed characteristics, including a longer body and shorter legs.

Corgipoos will generally weigh no more than 20 pounds. They can start putting on some excess weight as they age though, so you’ll want to monitor their food intake. Their coat colors can take many different hues. It’s quite possible your Corgipoo will be brown, white, black, tri-color, or just about anything in between. Corgipoos are expensive, but make wonderful family pets.


Cairnoodle Dog Outdoors

Breeds: Cairn Terrier and Poodle

The Cairnoodle is a mix of the Cairn Terrier and the Poodle. The Cairn Terrier is one of the oldest terrier breeds, and originates from the highlands of Scotland. Cairn Terriers already shed fairly minimally, so the crossing of the Poodle breed was done mostly to reduce health issues. While generally speaking both the Cairn Terrier and poodle are healthy purebreds, a mixing of these two breeds helps to eliminate crossbreeding birth defects.

Cairnoodles are lively pups, and like both parents are highly intelligent. They will seldom weigh over 15 pounds and do require daily exercise to keep their minds occupied. Cairnoodles will range in coat color. It’s quite common to see them in white, black, or even Brindle, which is inherited from their Cairn Terrier parent. Cairnoodles make excellent family pets, even though they are costlier than other doodle mixes.


Springerdoodle sitting outdoors

Breeds: Springer Spaniel and Poodle

The Springerdoodle is a crossbreed that pairs the Springer Spaniel and the Poodle. Springerdoodles are an energetic mix that makes for an excellent hunting companion. They take after their Springer Spaniel parent in their hunting ability, but their shedding is both reduced, and easier on people who have allergies to pet dander.

Springerdoodles are usually longer and leaner. They are a medium-sized dog, and will typically weigh no more than 40 to 50 pounds when fully matured. Their coat colors will typically more resemble their Springer Spaniel parent, picking up some spots in their coat. Their coats will also take after their Poodle parent in texture and feel. Springerdoodles are excellent family pets, and generally, get along with most other animals if socialized early.


Pyredoodle Indoors Sitting

Breeds: Great Pyrenees and Poodle

Pyredoodles have enjoyed a surge in popularity over the last several years. This unique mix combines the Great Pyrenees and the Standard Poodle to create a large but lower shedding dog. Pyredoodles are a highly intelligent large breed that can be used as anything from a family companion to a livestock guardian. They have a lower energy level than their Poodle parent but will have a stronger prey drive.

Pyredoodles will typically take after their Great Pyrenees parent when it comes to coat color. They will typically be white, and inherit the texture of their Poodle parent’s fur. These larger pups can tip the scales at over 100 pounds depending on the size of their parents. Genetically they also tend to have fewer health issues than either purebred parent. Pyredoodles can be a little more sensitive to guests and will need early socialization in order to accept new people in the home. They will generally do fine with other animals in the home.


Brown Shepadoodle Dog

Breeds: German Shepherd and Poodle

Shepadoodles are a crafty mix that blends the German Shepherd and Standard Poodle. This extremely intelligent mix has a considerable amount of energy and will need a very firm and dedicated owner. Shepadoodles will want to control the home and will need someone who can be consistent with obedience training from an early age.

Shepadoodles do not shed nearly as much as their German Shepherd parent. This is intentional, and one of the reasons the Shepadoodle was created. While not recommended for first-time dog owners, the Shepadoodle can be both a great family companion and working dog. They make great seeing-eye dogs, service dogs, and emotional therapy dogs. This comes from their intelligence level and ability to both learn and obey commands. If you have the patience for training, a Shepadoodle can be an excellent family pet.


Havapoo on Leash Outdoors

Breeds: Havanese and Poodle

Havapoos have gained an immense amount of popularity over the last decade. One of the smaller doodle dog mixes on this list, the Havapoo is a miniature pup that crosses either a Toy Poodle or smaller Standard Poodle with the Havanese. They are popular with pet allergy sufferers and shed infrequently.

Havapoos are soft coated, and will typically carry the white coat of both parent breeds. Havapoos are smaller dogs, usually weighing no more than 10 pounds when fully grown, regardless of their gender. They are excellent family dogs and love to cuddle in their owner’s lap. Havapoos can suffer from separation anxiety, which is common with both parents. If you plan to adopt a Havapoo, be prepared to spend plenty of time with them to avoid potentially destructive behaviors.


White Eskipoo Outdoors

Breeds: American Eskimo Dog and Poodle

Eskipoos are a rarer combination of the American Eskimo dog and the Poodle. Like many other doodle dogs on this list, the Eskipoo inherits the fluffier white coat of the American Eskimo and the soft texture of the Poodle. Eskipoos are slightly pricier than other poodle mixes due to the rarity of the breed combination.

The Eskipoo is a small to medium-sized breed. They will typically weigh no more than 20 pounds when fully grown, no matter the gender of the dog. They are excellent family dogs, and get along well with both children and other animals, making them suitable for multi-pet households. Eskipoos love to cuddle, and generally do well in just about any living situation.


Flandoodle Mix

Breeds: Bouvier Des Flandres and Poodle

The Flandoodle mixes the Poodle and the Bouvier des Flandres. This unique breed is a little bit more rare than other doodle dogs on this list. As such, you can expect that they will be a little more costly. They will range in size, but are generally considered a medium-sized breed that tops out at around 50-60 pounds depending on the dog’s gender.

The Flandoodle will vary in coat colors, but usually take on a darker hue. Both parent breeds can carry the gene for a darker coat, so the Flandoodle will likely have the same. These pups are low-shedding and look very unique compared to other types of poodle mixes. Flandoodles are excellent family dogs, and you’ll be sure to get plenty of questions about your pup at the local dog park.


Black Mastidoodle Dog

Breeds: English Mastiff and Poodle

The Mastidoodle is a combination of the English Mastiff and the Standard Poodle. This gentle giant is a wonderful family dog that sheds far less than their English Mastiff parent. Depending on their parents, they will generally be larger than a Standard Poodle by a fair bit, and smaller than a purebred English Mastiff.

Expect your Mastidoodle to weigh anywhere from 80 to 120 pounds when fully grown, depending on the size of your pup’s parents and the gender. Mastidoodles make wonderful family pets, and typically inherit the calmer demeanor of their Mastiff genes. Mastidoodles can live up to 12 years, which extends the typical English Mastiff lifespan. They are excellent family pets, and good with other animals when properly socialized early on.


Aussiedoodle Outdoors

Breeds: Australian Shepherd and Poodle

One of the most popular doodle dogs is the Aussiedoodle, also known as the Aussiepoo. This mix of the Poodle and the Australian Shepherd is a favorite of many doodle enthusiasts. They are extremely striking, often inheriting the blue eyes of their Aussie parent. While this breed is high-energy, they are usually eager to please their masters and adapt to any environment rather quickly.

Aussiedoodles are medium-sized dogs, and will usually not weigh more than 25 pounds when fully grown. Their coat colors will vary, oftentimes with each pup looking quite different, even when from the same litter. The Aussiedoodle is great with kids, other dogs, and will get along just fine with strangers too. They are highly social dogs and enjoy the company of their family above all else.

Irish Doodle

Irish Doodle Playing on Beach

Breeds: Irish Setter and Poodle

The Irish Doodle is a unique combo of the Irish Setter and the Poodle. This strikingly red pup is one of the most popular Irish Setter crossbreeds. Typically the Irish Doodle will inherit a red coat from their Irish Setter parent while taking on the texture and coat consistency from their Poodle parent.

Irish Doodles are medium-sized dogs that typically will not get larger than 60 pounds, regardless of their gender. They get along extremely well with children and in multi-pet households. They are very active and will need a decent-sized yard to run around on. While they can adapt to apartment living, they will usually do better with a house and at least a medium-sized yard.


Doxiepoo Doodle Outdoors

Breeds: Dachshund and Poodle

The Doxiepoo combines the Dachshund and the Poodle. Typically, the Dachshund will be paired with a Toy Poodle for this unique mix. Doxiepoos shed less frequently than their Dachshund parent, and require less grooming. They will inherit some of the unique traits of their Dachshund’s body shape, meaning they will have a longer body, and be shorter to the ground.

Doxiepoos are excellent family companions. Their Poodle parent’s temperament calms them down, as the Dachshund has been known to exhibit aggressive behaviors on occasion. The Doxiepoo can function well in any environment. Because of their small stature, they can do just fine in an apartment setting, or in a home.


Pugapoo Inside Home

Breeds: Pug and Poodle

The Pugapoo combines the fun-loving Pug and a Toy Poodle. Pugs are quite common in the designer dog world, being a parent to several different mixes. The Pugapoo’s coat will inherit some coloring from their Pug parent, including the black mask. They will shed far less than a Pug, as Pugs have more hair per square inch than most breeds and shed more as well.

Pugapoos are smaller dogs, usually not getting any larger than 15 pounds, regardless of their gender. They make excellent family companions and enjoy spending time cuddling up to their owners. They are “shadow” dogs, and will follow you most places that you go. If having a companion follow you around consistently is not something you are ready for, then the Pugapoo may not be the right breed for your family.

Great Danoodle

Black Great Danoodle Dog

Breeds: Great Dane and Poodle

The Great Danoodle is a gentle giant that mixes the incredibly large and lean Great Dane, with the Standard Poodle. Great Danoodles will be Large to Giant in size and can clear 100 pounds quite easily, especially males. Great Danoodles shed less than their Great Dane parents, and while they aren’t hypoallergenic, they are considered a low-shedding mixed breed.

Great Danoodles will vary in coat color. Both parent breeds share some common coat color genetics, with white, and black both being somewhat common. Great Danoodles can live up to 10 years fairly commonly, which adds a couple years to a purebred Great Dane’s regular lifespan. Great Danoodles can be excellent family dogs, and typically have lower energy needs once they pass their puppy stages at around age two. They can do well in apartments or smaller living spaces, but will normally do better with room to roam.


Airedoodle Dog Mix

Breeds: Airedale Terrier and Poodle

Airedale Terriers are one of the larger Terrier breeds. They are a lower shedding dog that some consider hypoallergenic. They don’t shed much, which makes them a perfect pair with a poodle. The Airedoodle will shed minimally, and they will live healthier lives than either purebred parent.

Airedoodles will vary in color, but typically lean towards brown, followed by black. Both have the potential to inherit some white in their coats. Their Airedale Terrier parent is most commonly brown, so it’s likely your Airedoodle will inherit this same color. Airedoodles are a medium-sized dog, and will typically not weigh more than 30 pounds when fully grown. They are active dogs and should have plenty of activity throughout the day to keep them occupied. They do well with families and can get along with most household pets.


Jackapoo Dog

Breeds: Jack Russell Terrier and Poodle

The Jackapoo combines the Jack Russell Terrier and the Poodle for one of the most popular Jack Russell crossbreeds. Typically the Jackapoo will have a Toy Poodle parent, or a smaller Standard Poodle parent. Jack Russell Terriers are one of the smartest dog breeds. They are highly intelligent and learn commands quickly. Because of their reputation as an excellent family companion, and their higher than normal IQ, the Jack Russell is the perfect breed to pair with a Poodle.

Jackapoos are smaller dogs and usually will not grow to more than 15-20 pounds. They will likely have a mixed coat color, that’s some combination of both parent breeds. This means they will be white, brown, black, tri-colored, or even spotted. Jackapoos can make great family dogs, and do well in multiple pet households.

Schnoodle: Breeds Schnauzer and Poodle

The Schnoodle mixes the Schnauzer and the Poodle. This mix can be a smaller pup if the Toy Poodle is a parent, and the Miniature Schnauzer the other. They can also be rather large if a Giant Schnauzer is one parent and a Standard Poodle the other. Depending on the parents, your Schoodle can come in a variety of different sizes. A larger Schnoodle can weigh between 50 and 70 pounds, whereas the smaller version typically won’t top 25.

The Schnoodle’s coat is going to be low shedding, as both parents don’t shed much. Schnoodles are fantastic for people with pet allergies. They will need consistent grooming to keep their coats in top shape. Most Schnoodle owners will use clippers to keep their hair consistently short and close to their bodies. Their coat color will range from black, to try, white and even brown. Schnoodles are excellent family companions and do well in just about any living situation.


Smiling Griffondoodle Dog

Breeds: Brussels Griffon and Poodle

The Griffondoodle crosses the Brussels Griffon and the Poodle. This produces a pup that looks somewhat like a longer haired Pug. Their fluffy coats will shed infrequently, just like many doodle dogs on this list. Their coat color will generally be tan in color or darker brown with traces of black in their muzzle.

The Griffondoodle typically has a Toy Poodle parent and will be a smaller breed. One parent will be a Toy Poodle, and the other the Brussels Griffon. They will not exceed 15 pounds in size and can do well living in just about any setting. While they will have energy, they will also be just as happy to spend time cuddling up in your lap during movie nights.

Planning on getting a Maltipoo? Wondering how it stacks up against other breeds in terms of ‘taking care’ of it? Well, let us run you through the Maltipoo pros and cons.

maltipoo pros and cons

Now, we do hope that you do not decide whether to purchase a Maltipoo puppy based on this article alone. While we can certainly help steer you in the right direction, remember that adopting an animal is a huge decision. Think long and hard about whether a Maltipoo is right for you. 

As the Australian singer-songwriter, Sia sings, “Puppies are forever, not just for Christmas.”

Let’s dive in.

The Pros of Getting a Maltipoo

We are going to start with the positive aspects of getting a Maltipoo. We LOVE Maltipoo’s like a hybrid Poodle dog mix. But we need to be honest about the benefits AND the drawbacks of this breed. 

cream wavy maltipoo puppy


Before we talk about this pro, we want to point out that if you are allergic to animals’ fur, you will be at least mildly allergic to the Maltipoo.

There is no such thing as a 100% hypoallergenic dog. Such a breed does not exist. And we should know! This website is dedicated to Poodle mix-breeds (and other almost hypoallergenic dogs like the Portuguese Water Dog).

In fact – the search for a hypoallergenic dog is why we researched and adopted our Miniature Labradoodle Puppy Max. All dogs have protein dander (the cause of allergies), which occurs plentifully in the saliva. A true hypoallergenic dog would need to have no spit. And that dog does not exist!

Breeds like the Labradoodle or Maltipoo are about as close as you can get to hypoallergenic.

We are talking about the Maltipoo because, for most people, it will not trigger conditions such as asthma or seasonal allergies. This is because it does not shed fur.

Most Maltipoo owners do not experience allergy even if other dogs trigger their issues. 

Of course, even if you do not suffer from allergies, this may still mean that the breed is right for you. After all, it is not going to be shedding fur all over your home. This means less cleanup!

Small in Size

The Maltipoo weighs between 10lbs and 20lbs (4.5 to 9 kilograms). This means that it is fantastic for homes that are tiny too. In fact, this makes a good dog for a small apartment. Obviously, it will still need to have a bit of space to roam about in, but surprisingly not that much. 

Small dogs are often healthier. That certainly is true as there are not that many health issues for the Maltipoo, either. They tend to be pretty healthy as animals. We want to point out that you should always be talking to a breeder to find out about the parents.  

Just like all dogs, health issues are passed down from generation to generation. This is why you need to know what the parents are like. This is why you should also ensure that you are only buying from a reputable breeder. If rescuing – be mindful of the unknown and provide regular Veterinary visits. 

Friendly Dog

While this breed does love a good bark at every opportunity, it is a surprisingly friendly dog. Obviously, you should still be looking at each dog as an individual, but this breed doesn’t really have an aggressive streak.

Once it knows you, it is going to be perfectly friendly around you. This is why it is an excellent dog for kids.

You should probably bear in mind that this is a dog that can be quite territorial at times. If a dog it doesn’t know enters the house, then it will probably bark and snap at it, but this shouldn’t be that much of a problem most of the time. 

If you already have a dog, you will probably want to introduce the Maltipoo to it slowly, in a controlled situation. You will also want to ensure that the two of them get on before leaving them alone with one another.


This is a dog that doesn’t need much in the way of walking. A single twenty-minute walk per day is often all that it needs. As long as it has access somewhere that it can use the bathroom, it barely needs to go outside. (Consider a porch potty like the DIY self-draining dog toilet I built for my puppy) 

This is a dog that tires itself out pretty quickly. If you give it a few toys in your home, then it will play with them. It is easy to keep occupied like that. While playing fetch in your home will not be a substitute for a walk, you can play with them a little like that, and they will get tired.

That being said, many people are not fans of the amount of energy that the Maltipoo has indoors. It is not a dog that enjoys staying in the same place for very long. So, until the dog’s energy levels are completely drained, you will have something that is quite energetic bouncing around.

Easy to find

This is a dog that has shot up in popularity in recent years. While this can be an expensive dog, it is easy to find, which means you probably will not need to hunt around too long for a breeder.

We cannot stress enough just how important it is that you try to track down a reputable breeder. You should never, ever buy dogs from puppy mills!

Because it is such a popular mix – you will infrequently encounter Maltipoos at animal shelters too. Be sure to check rescues before you adopt – you might meet your best friend!

The Look

Some people absolutely love the look of the Maltipoo. It is even better knowing that this is a dog you can pick up in many different colors. There are many different Maltipoo coat colors! This means that it shouldn’t be that difficult to find a Maltipoo that fits your personality.


This is a small dog, which means that the Maltipoo lifespan is relatively high. With the Maltipoo, you can expect it to live around 15-years.

Some have been known to live a little longer than this, but 15-years seems to be about the average. This is in line with the lifespan of other small dogs like the Cavapoo.

maltipoo pros and cons

The Cons of a Maltipoo

Now that we have the pros out of the way, it is high time that we took a look at some of the more known downsides of owning one of these dogs. We have tried to stick to downsides that are specific to this breed.

Although, do bear in mind that there may be more downsides than the ones listed here. Since it is a newer breed, you may find that some breeders may have issues with their Maltipoo dogs that have not been listed here.

The Cost

They may be small dogs, but they cost a considerable sum of cash. We are talking $2,000+ for a single puppy. This isn’t really a dog that you will be typically able to find at your local shelter either, which means if you want to adopt one, paying a breeder is often the only option.

For many, not being able to rescue this dog from the shelter is quite off-putting enough.

We do not know everything about this breed. 

What we don’t know yet about Maltipoos is a significant concern.

The Maltipoo is a breed that hasn’t been around for all that long. In fact, this dog has only been popular for approximately 20-years (it was bred a short while before that). This means that there isn’t that much information about long-term health issues and information about actually raising the dog.  

Chances are that there are not any major health issues with the Maltipoo, but it is something that you do need to bear in mind. Both parent breeds are super healthy – but a cross is a risk that must be considered!

Luckily the most commonly encountered issues are simple fixes that we already know. For example, a Maltipoo might temporarily be a stinky dog, but the reasons are easily identifiable and fixable.

Separation Anxiety

While some small breeds do well on their own for hours and hours on end, the Maltipoo is not one of these dogs. It is heavily prone to separation anxiety, so if you work long hours, this will probably not be the right breed of dog for you. 

Should you get a dog if you work fulltime? Things to consider before adopting a new dog in this article.


This is a dog that barks… sometimes a lot. Yes, this is something that you do tend to get with many small breeds of dog. However, the Maltipoo seems to be more prone to barking than most dogs. It is pretty tough to train out of them too. It is as if this dog is naturally territorial. 

Sometimes Maltipoo dogs will also growl. A growling Maltipoo can become a frustrating issue. Learn the common causes of growling and how to stop it.

Toilet train early – or regret it.

One of the most searched for Maltipoo phrases on this website relates to toilet training. It is so frustrating when a dog just doesn’t seem to learn when and where to toilet!

Find out why your Maltipoo puppy pees everywhere and strategies to implement immediately to stop this serious problem.


You will need to brush your Maltipoo dog every other day. If you don’t, then their fur can look rather shabby. This will take a decent amount of time, even if the dog is on the small side. 

An under groomed Maltipoo coat will also become matted and not be soft. We don’t want a clumpy or tough to pet coat!

See our guide on how to brush your Maltipoo and the best budget-friendly tools you need to buy.

Feeding the Dog

The Maltipoo may be a small breed of dog, but sometimes they eat like there is no tomorrow. Expect to give the dog a fair amount of food. At times, you may feel as if it has a bottomless stomach. It really consumes that much!

This is where there may be an issue. If you do not watch what the dog is eating, there is a strong chance to be obese. In fact, this is probably the main issue with the breed. It is easy to have an obese Maltipoo. Given that more than 50% of dogs in the USA are obese (Society Research) – you must be mindful of this fact.

Luckily there are plenty of natural, healthy, and high-quality dog foods that will specifically meet the Maltipoo needs. See the best dry foods for the Maltipoo breed in the article linked.

Maltipoo Pros and Cons Summary

So, there you have it. Those are the Maltipoo pros and cons. As we said at the start, we hope you do not base your entire buying decision on what we wrote here.

Even if it does seem like a brilliant dog for you, it will still be a living creature that you are bringing into your home for almost 2-decades.

Make sure you find out more about diet and living with a dog before you actually commit yourself to one. Once you commit yourself to one, we can promise you that you will likely end up with a beautiful dog.

Choosing Between Doodle Breeds

Labradoodles are such adorable, intelligent dogs that it’s understandable why so many people are choosing them as their family pets.

Labradoodles are one of several “Doodle” dogs, and each of them has its own attributes. How do you choose?

Choosing between a Labradoodle and other popular doodle breeds can be a difficult decision, especially if you’re going strictly by looks because they’re all so cute.

When we hear the words “doodle dogs”, we typically think of the Labradoodle because the Labradoodle was the first hybrid dog to come from combining a Poodle with the Labrador Retriever. However, people took notice and began breeding Poodles with other breeds, creating many new Doodle combinations.

After reading about the most popular Doodle dogs, if you decide that the Labradoodle is the dog for you, welcome to the club! I own two myself. 

In fact, I’ve put together a guidebook to the breed, The Owner’s Guide To The Perfect Labradoodle, that is a must-have for any Labradoodle owner. 

It covers the basics such as temperament, physical features, and daily care, but it also provides you with breed-specific details about:

  • Working with a breeder or adopting a rescue.
  • Preparing for the big homecoming day.
  • Crate training, housebreaking, and obedience training.
  • Exercising – both physical and mental.
  • Socialization.
  • Grooming – techniques and equipment.
  • Recommended toys and supplies.
  • And so much more.

It takes a lot to successfully raise a Labradoodle the right way.

This book will walk you through every step of your journey so that you can proceed with confidence, knowing you’re taking the best possible care of your little friend.

In the following, our goal is to highlight and compare some of the most popular Poodle-mix Doodle dogs to the Labradoodle.

Keep in mind that these comparisons are generalizations — all pups are not created equal.

We’ll be comparing these 8 Doodle breeds to the Labradoodle:

  • Goldendoodle — a Golden Retriever and Poodle mix
  • Bernedoodle — a Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle mix
  • Aussiedoodle — an Australian Shepherd and Poodle mix
  • Maltipoo — a Maltese and Poodle mix
  • Cavapoo — a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle mix
  • Cockapoo — a Cocker Spaniel and Poodle mix
  • Schnoodle — a Schnauzer and Poodle mix
  • Whoodle — a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier and Poodle mix

Since all have Poodle in their blood, they’re all going to have some similarities, which typically makes choosing even harder.

No surprise, but Labradoodle owners will tell you that it would take a lot to top their Labradoodle.

However, Doodle dogs in general are among some of the most popular breeds for pets, service dogs, therapy dogs, or just family pets.

(Learn what exactly it is about Labradoodles that makes them so well suited to service-dog roles in this article.)

While some people choose their dogs solely on appearance, others base it on the dog’s size, personality, or other factors.

Knowing a little more about each Poodle-mix dog can often make it easier to choose if you want a Labradoodle or one of the many other Doodle dogs.

Here is an overview of various types of Doodle dogs and how each of them compares to the ever-popular Labradoodle.

The Goldendoodle dog is a mix between a Miniature or Standard Poodle and a Golden Retriever. If mixed with a Miniature Poodle, their weight and height will be reduced.

Weight Range: 50 to 90 pounds

Height Range: 18 to 24 inches at the shoulders

Goldendoodles were originally bred as a larger alternative to the popular Cockapoo.

They’re friendly, loving dogs but tend to want a lot of attention from their owners and often suffer from separation anxiety when they’re left alone.

Goldendoodles and Labradoodles look so similar that many people (even veterinarians) can’t tell the difference at first glance.

They’re both very similar in size, coat, and personality. The Labradoodle and Goldendoodle are both loving and playful dogs.

Differences Between the Goldendoodle and Labradoodle:

  • Hair – Goldendoodles tend to have longer hair than Labradoodles.
  • Grooming – Because of the longer hair, Goldendoodles may require more grooming than Labradoodles.
  • Coat color – Both breeds range in color. Some colors you might see include White, Red, Brown, Yellow, Black, Gray, Tan, Silver, and Cream. You’ll even see combinations of several colors as well.
  • Size – Labradoodles tend to be bigger than Goldendoodles, but a lot depends on the size of their parents. You’ll find a guide to Goldendoodle sizes here.
  • Friendliness – While both breeds are extremely friendly, Goldendoodles tend to be more outgoing right from the start, even with strangers. Labradoodles, while equally friendly, may sit back and observe a bit more before interacting. Their level of socialization at an early age plays a major role in this.
  • Attention – Goldendoodles will try to get into your space and require more of your attention. Labradoodles are perfectly OK with lying in their corner resting and relaxing.
  • Watchdog – Labradoodles make much better watchdogs than Goldendoodles. They are quick to alert you when someone’s approaching the door, that’s for sure!

Be sure to visit our Goldendoodle articles if you’re interested in these fantastic dogs.



The Bernedoodle is the result of mixing a Poodle with a Bernese Mountain Dog. Their size can vary a lot depending on if the Bernese was mixed with a Toy, Mini, or Standard Poodle.

Weight Range: 10 to 90 pounds

Height Range: 10 to 29 inches at the shoulders

Because the Bernedoodle is a mixed breed, there can be a lot of variation in the litter.

There has been a lot of inbreeding of these dogs throughout the years, which has resulted not just in health issues but also temperament problems.

You can find out more about common Bernedoodle health concerns here.

Inexperienced breeders often have puppies that are skittish, hyperactive, stubborn, or even slightly neurotic.

Unfortunately, Bernedoodles are not the only hybrid dog that occasionally has these problems.

When you’re dealing with two different breeds, you can never know exactly what you’re going to get in a litter.

Experienced breeders have the knowledge of genetics and know which sires and dams to mix but variations can still occur.

Although Bernedoodles are very cute dogs, it’s often been difficult to find a Bernedoodle that’s both attractive and has a calm personality.

Here are some of the potential differences between Bernedoodles and Labradoodles.

Differences between the Bernedoodle and Labradoodle:

  • Maintenance – Labradoodles are very low maintenance while Bernedoodles are moderate maintenance.
  • Watchdogs – Both dogs make very good watchdogs.
  • Friendliness – While both are friendly, lovable dogs, Bernedoodles are more outgoing and sociable than Labradoodles.
  • Family dogs – Both breeds make good family dogs and enjoy being around children.
  • Coat – The Bernedoodle’s coat is dense, hard, thick, and wavy, while the Labradoodle’s coat is generally fine, long, silky and soft. (Find Bernedoodle grooming tips here.)
  • Competition – Labradoodles generally excel in various activities, such as agility, hunting, tracking, search and rescue, retrieving, and obedience. Bernedoodles may do well in these activities, but are more into playing and socializing.
  • Shedding – Bernedoodles will shed slightly more than Labradoodles.
  • Intelligence – Both dogs are extremely intelligent.

The Aussiedoodle is a mix between a Poodle and an Australian Shepherd.

Both the Australian Shepherd and the Poodle fall in the canine Einstein family, so it’s not unusual that Aussiedoodles are extremely intelligent and highly trainable dogs.

Depending on if the Shepherd was crossed with a miniature or a standard Poodle, the Aussiedoodle size can vary significantly. (Learn about average Aussiedoodle sizes here.)

Weight Range: 25 to 70 pounds

Height Range: 14 to 23 inches at the shoulders

Because of their intelligence, owners are advised to find jobs to keep the dog busy, whether it’s retrieving balls, pulling things around the yard, or fun agility work.

The Australian Shepherd has always been a herding dog. This trait makes the dog want to keep people together in a group.

They often try to do this with family members, particularly children, by nipping at their legs or bumping into them.

What is often mistakenly considered as aggression is just them trying to herd. Can they do well in a family? Absolutely.

Encouraging good behavior consistently at a young age can eliminate excessive herding tendencies with Aussiedoodles.

They are also extremely loving and cuddly dogs. There are similarities and differences between Aussiedoodles and Labradoodles.

The Maltipoo is a hybrid, designer dog resulting from crossing a Poodle with a Maltese. Because the Poodle is usually either a toy or a miniature Poodle, the Maltipoo is not a really large dog.

Weight Range: 5 to 20 pounds

Height Range: 8 to 14 inches at the shoulders

Maltipoos can be ideal dogs for first-time pet owners, but work even better for homes with older children or elderly people.

They catch on to what you want very quickly, making them easy to train.

Maltipoos are very sensitive to their owner’s needs and wants. They need lots of exercise to avoid pent-up energy, which can result in chewing and damaging property.

They differ from Labradoodles in a few ways.

Differences Between the Maltipoo and Labradoodle:

  • Noise – Unlike Labradoodles who tend to be quiet, Maltipoos love to bark and often need strict discipline to keep them quiet.
  • Size – Maltipoos are usually much smaller than Labradoodles.
  • Outdoors – Maltipoos prefer to spend most of their time indoors while Labradoodles enjoy romping around outside.
  • Alone time – Maltipoos also do not like being alone and may suffer from separation anxiety.
  • Maintenance – Maltipoos need daily brushing to prevent their hair from getting tangled. Periodic clipping is also advised. See our Maltipoo Grooming Guide for specifics.
  • Children – Because of their small size, Maltipoos shouldn’t be in homes with small children, unlike Labradoodles who do well with children of all ages.
  • Ideal home – Labradoodles generally do better in large homes with a yard in which they can run around and explore. Maltipoos do well in any size home, even small apartments.

More fun facts about these cute dogs can be found on our Maltipoo page.



Also known as Cavoodle, the Cavapoo is a hybrid dog that comes from breeding a Poodle with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

Cavapoos are intelligent dogs with the potential to be very trainable. However, many would rather sit on their owner’s lap than learn to follow commands or perform tricks.

They are typically bred with Toy or Miniature Poodles, which puts them on the smaller side of Doodle dogs.

Weight Range: 7 to 25 pounds

Height Range: 9 to 14 inches at the shoulders

They make good family dogs but do better in homes with older children.

It’s not that they don’t like small children, but the dog’s small size makes them more susceptible to injuries from small children.

Cavapoos are very energetic dogs that will chase a ball indefinitely if allowed. They also do well in agility and obedience competitions.

Differences between the Cavipoo and Labradoodle:

  • Watchdogs – Cavapoos are not the greatest of watchdogs. Rather than alert their owners of a stranger at the door, they’ll greet the intruder with a smile. Their lack of watchdog traits is probably the biggest drawback of Cavapoos.
  • Size – They’re much smaller than Labradoodles.
  • Outdoors – Unlike Labradoodles who can survive for a long time outdoors and enjoy the outdoors, Cavapoos need to spend most of their time indoors. Because of their short muzzle, Cavapoos can’t spend much time out in the heat.
  • Therapy dog potential – Both the Labradoodle and the Cavapoo have the gentle disposition that makes them good therapy dogs.
  • Abilities – While both breeds do well in obedience and agility competitions, the Labradoodle also excels in hunting, retrieving, tracking, jogging, and search and rescue.
  • Adaptability – The Cavapoo is more adaptable to change and different surroundings than the Labradoodle typically is.

Cockapoos are a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle or a mix of two Cockapoos bred together. They’re also referred to as Cockerpoos or Cockapoodles.

If there is one word that could describe the Cockapoo’s coat it would be diverse. It might be scruffy and shaggy, or it might be very curly and have various colors and markings.

Weight Range: 19 to 30 pounds

Height Range: 10 to 13 inches at the shoulders

Cockapoos have a wonderfully cheerful personality and love making their owners happy.

They also find pleasure in the simplest things in life, whether it’s cuddling on their owner’s lap, running an agility course, playing the part of a therapy dog, or performing tricks to impress the family.

They’re a lovable, happy dog that gets along with just about everyone, including people, other dogs, and even cats.

Although they’re not known for being aggressive dogs, Cockapoos may do a lot of jumping, barking, or even chewing on things when they’re bored or alone.

There are a few differences between the Labradoodle and the Cockapoo.

Differences between the Cockapoo and Labradoodle:

  • Time alone – Whereas Labradoodles are perfectly content taking a nap in their crate or special spot, Cockapoos prefer to be with their owners as much as possible. Some owners claim they have to shut the door behind them just to get a little privacy from their Cockapoo!
  • Intelligence –Cockapoos and Labradoodles are both extremely intelligent and easily trained.
  • Maintenance –Whereas Labradoodles are very low maintenance dogs, Cockapoos have a scruffy coat that requires a lot of maintenance in the form of regular brushing and grooming.
  • Size – Cockapoos are substantially smaller than Labradoodles.
  • Personality – Labradoodles are often content being couch potatoes, a trait they get from the Labrador Retriever side. Cockapoos are anything but couch potatoes.
  • Exercise – Labradoodles require more time outside and enjoy getting exercise more than the Cockapoo.
  • Housing – Labradoodles prefer a large house with plenty of outdoor space to do their thing while Cockapoos will get be just fine in a small house or apartment.

There’s so much to love about these adorable pups! Be sure to learn more in our Cockapoo articles.



The Schnoodle is a small dog that’s a cross between a Poodle and a Miniature Schnauzer. They’re known for being funny, charming, smart and very alert dogs.

Schnoodles make great companion and therapy dogs. They love “their people” and are perfectly content as lap dogs.

Weight Range: 10 to 20 pounds

Height Range: 10 to 12 inches at the shoulders

Miniature Schnauzers tend to be quite protective of their home and their owners, so it’s important that they receive consistent training, socialization, and discipline at an early age.

In fact, Schnoodles need socialization more than anything else, and it should start as early as eight to ten weeks of age. Despite being such a small dog, Schnoodles are very sturdy.

The Poodles intelligence and willingness to please their own combined with the Schnauzer’s strength make a dog that does well in performance and competitions.

The one thing that both the Labradoodle and Schnoodle have in common is that they’re both good for novice dog owners and are both kid-friendly dogs.

Differences between the Schnoodle and Labradoodle:

  • Maintenance – The Schnoodle’s curly coat requires regular maintenance, which includes bathing, daily brushing, and regular clipping.
  • Outdoor – Unlike the Labradoodle, the Schnoodle prefers to spend most of the time indoors and should never be left outdoors for long.
  • Housing – Schnoodles do very well in any type of housing and are very adaptable to small apartments, not requiring much space.
  • Temperament – Labradoodles are much more laid back and relaxed than Schnoodles.
  • Coat – The Schnoodle’s coat may be curly, wavy, wiry, or straight – all traits that can be found in the Labradoodle’s coat.
  • Personality – The Schnoodle loves attention and being the center of attention. Labradoodles may enjoy the attention as well but don’t have to be the center of attention.



Also known as Sweatenpoo, the Whoodle is a cross between a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier and a Standard Poodle, although they may be also be crossed with toy or miniature Poodles if the breeder prefers a smaller Whoodle.

The Whoodle is a great family dog that gets along with people of all ages, whether they’re young children, active singles or elderly individuals.

Weight Range: 20 to 45 pounds

Height Range: 12 to 20 inches at the shoulders

Because they’re very active and playful dogs, they enjoy a home with a large yard where they can run around and play.

Due to their intelligence, they also require a lot of stimulation to prevent them from becoming bored, which can result in behavior problems.

They can also have a stubborn streak from time to time, especially when asked to do something they don’t want to do.

The Whoodle is usually born with a dark coat that lightens as the dog ages. Like the Labradoodle, the Whoodle seldom barks and is a relatively quiet dog.

Overheating in the summer is common, but they do very well in average and colder temperatures.

Because of their terrier DNA, they have the prey drive and are not always trustworthy around cats.

Differences between the Whoodles and Labradoodle:

  • Trainability – Both the Whoodle and the Labradoodle are intelligent and easily trained, but results may not be seen with the Whoodle as quickly as the Labradoodle. Whoodles do not respond well to harsh training or discipline.

  • Coat color – The Whoodle comes in a lot more color varieties (black, chocolate, apricot, silver, red, or spotted) than the Labradoodle, which is typically black, black and tan, or blue brindle.
  • Coat texture – The Whoodle’s coat is more like hair than fur.

Doodle Dogs And Why They’re So Popular

What started out as one Labradoodle dog has evolved into many different breeds being mixed with Poodles to create a new kind of Doodle dog.

Because Doodle dogs are basically mixed breed dogs that can’t be registered as purebreds, many people wonder why they’re so popular and have become so well-known and sought-after.

Depending on who you ask, you’ll probably get the following answers.

  • Low Shedding – Most, if not all, Doodle dogs shed very little, which makes them ideal for allergy sufferers.
  • Intelligence – They’re intelligent dogs, which makes them easy to train for use as pets, therapy dogs, competitions or just obedience.
  • Versatile – Because of the combinations of breeds, most Doodle dogs are versatile dogs that look very comfortable in a “wine and candle” atmosphere but are just as content running around outdoors, retrieving, hunting, or swimming in the pond.
  • Personality – Doodle dogs are generally loving, playful, and affectionate dogs that want nothing more than to please their family members.
  • Looks – Regardless of what dog breed the Poodle is mixed with, the result is always an adorable and very attractive Doodle dog.
  • Trendy – Let’s face it. People love to follow trends, and Doodle dogs have been trending for many years, almost since the very first Labradoodle was created.
