Doodle, or mix with poodle, seems to be the new dog of the hour. There is no denying that the qualities attributed to them seem to be miracles.
A dog that does not need to be groomed, that is hypoallergenic, does not lose its hair, that is calm , that listens all the time and that is patient with children .
What is a Goldendoodle or a Labradoodle?
A Labradoodle Dog is the mixture of a poodle (toy, miniature or standard) with a dog of another breed, generally indicated in the rest of the name of the mixture. A goldendoodle is therefore a mixture of standard poodle and golden retriever, a labradoodle is a mixture of standard poodle and labrador retriever, a yorkipoo is a mixture of toy poodle and yorkshire terrier and so on.
The idea, originally, was to create a dog with the hair of the poodle and the personality of the other breed. Many people think, in fact, that by crossing two good elements, we will get a dog that will be the sum of everything we love in the mix.
Unfortunately, genetics is a little more complex than that. Otherwise my brother would be the same as me. You know, like me, he would have had exactly the best of our two parents. What you need to know about Doodle: myths and realities
Are Doodles hypoallergenic?
You should know that no dog is 100% hypoallergenic.In general, people react to the protein secreted by saliva and the skin of dogs. A dog that does not lose its hair, like the bichon and the poodle, is less likely to spread the allergen. Frequent visits to the groomer would also help minimize reactions. It’s nothing magical.
For this reason, some puppies from the crossing of a poodle with another breed can, if they have the right gene for the right fur, be “hypoallergenic”. But not all. A poodle father and a Labrador mother, for example, will make puppies with hair similar to the poodle, hair similar to the Labrador or a mixture of both. The scope will be like a rainbow with lots of variations.
There is no way to guarantee that a dog will be hypoallergenic. Even if we take the purest poodle on the planet, it is possible that a person may have a reaction.
Should Doodles Be Groomed?
At home, Doodles need regular brushing in order to maintain, air and untangle their fur. They also need regular grooming from a professional or they are at risk of felting, knotting, these dogs can also do “Hot Spot” or have skin problems.
