Thinking about getting a new pup after retirement so have been perusing the local ads. Seems "-doodle" is all the rage - labradoodle, schnoodle, lhasadoodle, goldendoodle - lots and lots of goldendoodles, blooddoodle, even one "Australian Mountain Doodle". I'm surprised no one is advertising any poodledoodles.

So, not ranting or satirizing here (although it is a bit comical), but a semi-serious question; what's the big attraction to mixing breeds with poodles? Or is it just the inevitable result of poodles sneaking out of the house to find horny bitches lots more than other dogs?

I think it’s a combination of fad and sounding “cute” to some buyers and the appeal of poodles and poodle crosses generally not shedding.

Poodles are high on the intelligence scale and they don't shed. I had a labradoodle for 13 years and she was the best dog I've ever had.

Now I'm looking for a standard poodle for my next dog. Bypassing all those doodle half breeds and go straight to the source.

They are smart Basstards for one and they don’t shed. Personally I don’t care for poodles though.

They a mutts but the cool thing to have now I guess. People get a lot of money for them, i ran across a litter of double golden doodles...like a three way incest thing it sounded like when the lady explained it, she was getting 800 a piece like it was nothing.

I hear they dont shed and are hypoallergenic so I guess thats a good thing

Meeeahh....... They are all MUTS, PERIOD. You never know what you will get with a "MUT". The "Doodles" do shed and they are NOT "Anti Allergic" either . All kinds of temperament and inherited conformation issues too.

There are NO "BREEDERS" of Doodle-anything............... They are all just Scam Artists.......

There are over 100 different breeds registered by the AKC. Do a search on the various breeds, pick a good breeder and be happy for many years because you will know what you will get.

Well, I don't know. One of my SIL is allergic to all dogs except a "doodle". That's what they got, and he's fine with it, so for some people at least they ARE hypoallergenic.

The faithfulness of a lab and the non-shedding of a poodle.

Having said that, they’re just the latest “must have” pet.

I saw an “Australian” doodle the other day, too and thought WTF? Just another way to add some cache to the mutt.

Bottom line - people are idiots.

I think cuck911 has a doodle. The few people I know that picked up doodle has serious health issues. Not much regulation of breed. Lots of puppy mills. I know of no reputable longterm breeders of doodles.

Stick with a well known breed with a good breeder who cares, with health certs. Just get a standard poodle from a reputable breeder.

They are great if your allergic, but that's the only benefit I can see. If you price a pup. you'll go to a shelter to get a dog.

Oldest daughter's Poodle-Ausie Shepard bitch mix had a litter of 11 pups late last year and had them all sold but one (they kept one) for big bucks before they were a month old. The sire is a Goldendoodle. She's got another litter due next weekend from the same two dogs. Bunch of people have already spoke interest in buying them once born.

I haven't seen anything out of any of her Doodle mix dogs that made me believe they were especially intelligent. She had another one a few years ago and I developed a strong dislike for. That dog was a really hard headed thing. It refused to do anything it didn't want to do and would fight you every step of the way to not do it. The only redeeming quality it had was it was very protective of their family. It would even try to "save" daughter and grandkids when they were swimming in their swimming pool by jumping in and pulling them to safety even though they didn't need saving.

The F1 cross is pretty predictable. A first generation golden doodle is pretty much the same where ever you look.

My son has a standard poodle x springer. He is a big furry white with black speckles mop, loves the water, loves the kids, and leaves gallons of water in his wake when he crawls out of the pond. He is hilarious. My son loves him as do the grandkids, But I would not have him around.

F2 crosses are where things get unpredictable, as you never know how many genes or which genes of each breed you will end up with.

My wife and daughter each bought respectively a female and a male (brother and sister) from a litter of "morkies". maltese X yorkie.

My wife's female appears to be about 80% maltese, while my daughter's male appears to be 80% yorkie. Typical of an F2 cross.

Yes, they could have just gone to the pound and picked any toy sized mutt, and saved $1500 apiece. But at least this way they are fairly assured there is not a damned pitbull in the ancestry anywhere.

Myself, our next and probably last dog is going to be a fine Golden from Ponderay Kennels. I will have to drive to Colorado to get him.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

I like a good mutt for the house. Helps if they don't shed. But I'm not going to pay mid or even high 3 figures or more for one.

We've got a golden doodle that was rehomed. The family that originally bought him was in over their heads with a new pup, so we didn't pay the insane breeder fees.

Say what you will about them being the trendy pet for suburban housewives, he's a great dog. Gentle with kids, smart, and obedient. Absolutely no regrets.

They don't shed, at least not as much, and they're supposed to be non-allergenic.
Get a large one bred from a standard poodle. Some of the standards still have some brains. The small ones are bred from toy poodles and the toy breed is as stupid as dogs can come. They've bred them for small size and zero brains.

Like already stated. No shedding and very smart which makes them easy to train. If you just want a pet, they are a great option and and generally great dogs. Nothing worse than a stupid pup.
