The Whoodle is a hybrid between the Poodle and the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier. While these are both excellent dogs, you should be wary when purchasing any “designer” mix. Puppy mills will often churn these out for a quick profit when the dogs aren’t healthy or socialized, so don’t support these businesses. You might pay later!
These are great dogs if you find a genuine one though. They’re medium-sized and the thick, dense, curly coat is great for anyone who suffers from allergies. Although no dog is truly hypoallergenic, the Whoodle comes pretty close and you shouldn’t have much of an issue.
They are very energetic and need an outlet for this! These dogs always want to play, and a fenced-in backyard can really help you give them space to run around. They can live in apartments too, but will definitely need walks every day. Since they’re intelligent, they’ll also need a lot of mental stimulation. Don’t skip this, as a bored dog is a destructive dog! You can provide lick mats and puzzle toys, and train them to do some fun tricks. The latter also helps you bond with your dog!
Whoodle – A Super Friendly Dog
Perhaps the best thing about a Whoodle is that they get along with everyone. They not only love the adults in their family, but will bond well with the kids and even love other animals. To set them up for success, however, you should get them the appropriate socialization when they’re young. They’re set up to be great with some in-built personality traits, but you really need to work with them to bring out their full potential.
Train them, socialize them, and give them plenty of stimulation, and you’ll have the best dog ever. Once you do get to know the breed you will quickly fall in love with them.
