Doodles and ‘Poos

How Do You Choose?

Poodles are known for their high IQs and ease of training. They’re also fun, affectionate, and extremely active-all reasons they’ve been a beloved breed for so many years. Not surprisingly, Poodle mixes, a cross between a Poodle and another dog breed, are some of the most popular and sought-after hybrid dogs.

Poodle mixes are so popular for several reasons-they have a low-shedding, hypoallergenic coat, they’re generally loyal, smart, and good with kids, and usually, mixed breeds have fewer health issues due to the variety in their genes.

Crossing Poodles with other great breeds means that you’ll likely get the best of both dogs. Here are 5 of the best Doodles and ‘Poos:
