Doodles are smart, obedient dogs that love to learn and play. They are family friendly and highly social, and can be a great addition to families with kids and other pets or dogs. Adorable Doodle Puppies tend to have high energy levels and enjoy having a fenced yard where they can run and play. However, they can also be very laid back and will happily snuggle with their people.
How much is a doodle dog?
Before you get your new Doodle, make sure you can devote the time to training and exercise, and that you’re willing to puppy-proof your home. This includes putting away anything that could be chewed or destroyed (like shoes and furniture) until your dog has learned not to do so. Make sure you have plenty of toys and chews, including ones that are size appropriate for your Doodle. This will help to redirect their natural chewing behavior from your expensive items to something that is safe and satisfying for them.
When you meet your prospective Doodle puppy, pay attention to how they respond when you touch them. If they move away, lick their lips, or flinch, they are likely fearful and may be difficult to live with. They will need to be taught to relax and trust humans through positive reinforcement.
Doodles come in a wide variety of sizes, from tiny Mini Poodles to large Stdard and Bernedoodles. The type of coat they have is a big factor in their appearance, as well. Wavy-coated doodles look much different than curly-coated dogs, and an experienced doodle breeder should be able to tell you their coat type even at just a few weeks old.
