What is a Designer Dog?
You may have heard of certain breeds, like the Bernedoodle and Havapoo, referred to as a “designer breed.” This means that breeders intentionally crossed two different breeds of dogs to create one pup with a set of ideal traits.
For example, Schnoodles are a cross between schnauzers and poodles. These breeds are hypoallergenic– which means minimal shedding– and are incredibly intelligent. The Schnoodle gets a double-dose of those wonderful traits, as well as some breed-specific benefits:
- Schnauzer coats are much softer than poodle coats, so the Schnoodle has a soft but tight curl.
- They have lovely temperaments, with the loyal, people-pleasing personality of a Schnauzer combined with the active, playful nature of the Poodle.
- Schnoodles are perfect for families because they are less stubborn than their Schnauzer side and have less of the boundless energies we see in poodles. It’s an ideal balance of fun-loving and family-oriented.
Designer dogs make it easier to find a companion that works best with your lifestyle, as many breeds are notorious for particular traits that might not align with your needs. Hybrid pups are the best of both worlds, making adjusting and bonding with the owner easier.
