About the Spoodle

The Spoodle is a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Miniature or Toy Poodle. Spoodles make for gentle, outgoing house pets who love people and fit well into almost any kind of family. These curious and intelligent dogs tend to be easy to train and handle, even for novice owners.

While they are a crossbreed and have a chance of being more like one parent or another, most Spoodles tend to be sweet and even-tempered dogs.

These are highly adaptable dogs who excel in a variety of living situations. They can easily fit into their owners lifestyle in terms of accommodations and exercise habits. However, they do tend to be high energy dogs who love the outdoors.

Spoodle Breed History

Along with the Goldendoodle and Labradoodle, the Spoodle is one of the most popular of the Oodle breeds – hybrids between a Poodle and another dog breed. While Poodle mixes have been around for a long time, it is likely thanks to the Spoodle that these types of dogs have really exploded in popularity.

Most Spoodles were created to be hypoallergenic companion dogs with the intelligence of the Poodle and the happy-go-lucky personality of the Cocker Spaniel. There have been some attempts to create breed standards, but various different clubs have different ideas about the direction to take the breed.

Regardless of the breeding philosophy, they make excellent companions and their popularity has only grown with the passage of time. It’s expected that the Spoodle will only gain more prominence from here on out.

How to Choose a Responsible Spoodle Breeder

The best Spoodle breeders are always going to be responsible, ethical breeders who have the best interests of the dogs in mind. They’ll have the knowledge necessary to produce healthy, well-behaved puppies.

The breeder you’re buying from should know the best practices when breeding their animals, as well as how to provide mental and physical stimulation to the puppies in the first 8 weeks of life.

Spoodle FAQ

No. They need attention from their owner or family members, as they thrive on human company. They’re highly sensitive and can become moody and depressed when left alone.

They tend to be hypoallergenic if their coat ends up being similar to that of the Poodle parent. However, some dogs have an inbetween or wavy coat that does not trap shed hair and dander as well as the curls of the Poodle. It’s best to meet the Spoodle puppy before committing to buying one if you have dog allergies.
