A Spoodle (or Cockapoo) is a hybrid breed that is created by crossing a Poodle and Cocker Spaniel. They are known for their gentle, easy-going and sociable nature, making them a popular breed among pet owners. Their low/non-shedding coats make them suitable for people with allergies and families looking for a dog that won't leave hair throughout the house.
DNA Tested Parents
Spoodles reflect the best traits of both their parents. Like Cocker Spaniels, they are gentle, easy-going and affectionate. Like Poodles, they are known for their loving and sociable nature. This makes Spoodles an ideal family pet, as they are great with children and other pets. They also make good therapy dogs, as they have a calming and soothing effect on people.
Size & Colouring
At Braeside Oodles we specialise in Toy Spoodles which are considered a small to medium breed. They typically to grow to approximately 25-35cm to the shoulder and weigh approximately 8-14kg. Our Toy Spoodles come in a range of colours including chocolate, apricot, cream and black
Grooming & Maintenance
While Spoodles do require regular grooming to maintain their coat, they are not considered to be a high maintenance breed. Spoodles, like other oodle breeds, are considered a hypoallergenic dog breed due to their low-shedding and allergy-friendly coat. Their allergy-friendly coat makes them a good choice for many people with allergies and/or asthma as they won't have reactions to their coat or dander. Regular brushing can help avoid their coat from becoming matted, allowing you to keep their fluffy coat if you like that look.
At Braeside Oodles, we pride ourselves on providing families with happy and healthy puppies. This is why all our breeding dogs are DNA tested for any genetic problems that can be passed onto their puppies. Our Spoodles, along with all of our other puppies leave our home with the following:
Thorough Veterinarian check
First Vaccination C3
Parasite preventative (worm & flea)
All puppies are sold as pets only and as such come with a desexing voucher/contract to have the puppy desexed between 6-12 months of age. We also provide our puppies with a health guarantee so you can be confident you are buying a healthy puppy that will live a long and happy life.
Spoodles have a moderate energy level and like other dogs, require regular exercise to maintain both their physical and mental health. 40 to 60 minutes of moderate exercise per day, such as a long walk, play session in the park and/or the use of enrichment toys, such as Kongs is recommended. It's important that Spoodles are given enough physical and mental stimulation to prevent boredom and destructive behaviours such as digging and chewing.
