These sweet little guys are known for their adorability; both through their looks and personality! Schnoodles absolutely love being with their ‘hoomans’ and cuddling up next to you, so it’s no surprise they are often used as therapy dogs. Like their parents, these guys have a real willingness to please their owners but are also highly-energised and always ready for a game of catch – or just a run around the garden! Many even describe this group of dogs as the ‘forever happy’ breed and they are easily adaptable to many forms of lifestyle. This breed also makes good guard-dogs, as they will bark at strangers, most notably the postman! Just make sure they don’t get into the habit of barking all the time. This can be easily reduced if you train them from pups. A really cute aspect of this breed, is they love to hold blankets and toys in their front paws – so many Instagram-able opportunities!
These gorgeous fluff-balls first made appearances in the 1980’s after increased demand in Poodle Crosses! The original aim was to create a low-shedding family doggy that would be more suited to doggy owners that suffered from allergies. Un-like other popular ‘designer’ breeds, this breed didn’t quite reach the popularity of their cousins but they still have a large following that is slowly starting to rise! The breed is a cross between a Schnauzer and a Poodle, although it’s common now to breed them multi-generationally (this means breeding Schnoodles as opposed to Poodles and Schnauzers together). It’s hoped in the near future that these guys will soon be a registered breed.
