Doguedoodle History

The Doguedoodle is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle. The Doguedoodle was developed by crossing the Labrador Retriever and the Standard Poodle. The Labradoodle is a variety of the Dogue Doodle. The first known appearance of the term “Doodle” in print was in 1957. Modern day Doodles are the descendants of the “Golden Retrievers”, first bred by Captain George F. “Buddy” Ryan, Jr. in 1955. The “Golden” prefix was dropped in the early 1970s. The Golden Retriever was bred with poodles and the resulting puppies were called “Poodles”. In 1990, breeders began to selectively backcross the “Poodles” to the “Retrievers” to develop the original “Labradoodles”.

The Doguedoodle is a crossbreed dog that is made up of the Poodle and a variety of terrier breeds. These dogs are very intelligent and friendly. They are extremely loyal to their owners, but may not do well with small children. They have a tendency to protect their homes, so early socialization is important for this breed.

Doguedoodle Activity Requirements

While a standard poodle and a dachshund may not seem like the most likely of companions, the dachshund-dalmatian crossbreed known as the doguedoodle is a relatively new designer dog. Like most new, mixed-breed dogs, doguedoodles are not a recognized or standardized breed of dog. That said, they are generally known to be small, intelligent, and loyal. While doguedoodles are not as high-energy as some of the other hybrid breeds, they do still require daily walks. They also enjoy playing and hiking, and are often good with other dogs and pets. If you are looking for a low-maintenance companion, a dachshund-dalmatian mix may be the right choice. This is a smart, fun, and affectionate dog that makes a great addition to any family.
