Are Whoodles Hypoallergenic?

The Whoodle is a cross between a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier and a Poodle which means that it has traits of both breeds.

It should be noted that no dog is truly hypoallergenic, but certain breeds are better for those with allergies than others. Many people believe that the source of their allergies lies in the dog’s fur, but this is false.

The Whoodle has two different coat types that it might inherit from its parents. It may have a curly texture from its Poodle parent or a straight texture from the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier parent.

Whoodle Coat Types and Grooming

If you get your dog as a puppy, grooming should start immediately so that they grow up accustomed to the experience. However, adult dogs can also enjoy grooming if you take the proper steps to teach them.

Training Your Dog to Be Groomed

The first thing you need to do is set aside a time when you can be extremely patient with your dog. A Whoodle who isn’t used to being groomed may not want to sit still long enough for you to brush their long coat.

1. Patience and Positive Reinforcement

At first, you want your dog to get used to being handled. Touch their ears, head, and nails firmly so that they become accustomed to the way it feels.

2. Handle Them First

Allow your dog to inspect the tools you will be used for grooming. Give them ample opportunity to sniff the brushes and nail clippers before you start using them.

3. Inspect the Tools

Clipping their nails is a bit different. You should reward your dog handsomely for each nail that you clip. You may want to do just one paw at a time because this is very sensitive.

4. Practice Grooming and Trimming Nails
