COCKER SPANIEL x POODLE

ABOUT THE SPOODLE

 Origin

171874411_10158069066502525_7266879931137579821_n.jpg

The spoodle is a hybrid of an English or American Cocker Spaniel or Springer Spaniel and a Poodle (toy or miniature). They have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. The aim of crossbreeding is to minimise the genetic diseases that can be present in purebred dogs. First-cross spoodles will have the maximum genetic benefits associated with a hybrid dog – in other words, a Spoodle with one parent purebred spaniel and one parent purebred poodle will have less genetic diseases than second or third cross Spoodles.

Description

Spoodles are great for active families with children who are wanting a dog a bit bigger than a Cavoodle, one that is a bit more active, loves the water and is very gentle. They are the same as the Cavoodle in that they are very intelligent, intuitive, loyal and loving. Low to non shedding. They are very protective of their families.

Grooming

Your Spoodle's coat will require a certain level of care. Due to being a relatively non-shedding breed, they will be required to be professionally groomed every 6-8 weeks with brushing and combing regularly required in between to avoid matting. If you neglect this you may pick up a very different looking dog when you collect it from your groomer!

 

Their eyes should be cleaned regularly to prevent a build-up eye discharge and tear staining.

Suitability for Children

High

Excccise

Spoodles are highly active dogs and will require daily walking and visits to the dog park for socialisation. They adore being a the beach and love the water. Being off lead will let them thrive and give them freedome to run! They enjoy socialising with other dogs and love chasing balls and playing games. 

Life Expectancy

10 - 15 years.

Temperament

The spoodle is a happy, intelligent, lively and affectionate family dog. They are very sociable and have outgoing personalities. They can adapt to living in a small home or apartment as long as they receive adequate daily exercise. Spoodles can be good guard dogs as they may bark when visitors arrive, however they are not aggressive. They can be a bit more active than a Cavoodle and are often recommended for active families with children, who prefer a slightly larger dog than a Cavoodle.

Their intelligence and eagerness to please can make them easy to train.

Tendency to Bark: They have a deep, low bark that makes them sound larger than what they actually are! Making a perfect guard dog!
