The Ultimate Guide to Spoodle Puppiess

Also known as Cockapoo, Cockerpoo, and Cockerdoodle, the Spoodle is one of the top Doodle dog breeds in the world. A crossbreed, it gets its intelligence from its Toy Poodle parent, and its friendly nature from its English Cocker Spaniel parent.

 

This pup is known for looking like a small teddy bear. Because of its size and gentle nature, it makes a wonderful pet for those who tend to get anxious around dogs.

Spoodle Origins

In the 1950s, breeders crossed Poodles with other breeds to develop hypoallergenic dogs that shed very little. Among the breeds they crossed with Poodles were English Cocker Spaniels. The result of the cross is the hybrid known today as the Spoodle.

 

In the 1960s, the Spoodle became a very popular designer dog. It was formally acknowledged by The Cockapoo Club of America in 1999.

How can I take care of my Spoodle Puppies?

Nutrition

Spoodle puppies love food, so you can mix up their diet without worries. You can put your pup on a raw meat diet or a pure kibble diet. You can also feed it cooked fish, rice, and vegetables. Refrain, however, from overfeeding your dog because it tends to gain weight quickly.

Grooming

Spoodle puppies need regular combing, brushing, and clipping to keep their coat looking good. On top of home care, they also need to visit a professional pet groomer every month.

 

Bathing should be done at least once a month or when your pup gets dirty. Avoid bathing your Spoodle frequently as doing so can dry out its skin and interfere with any external treatments.

Recommended Grooming Tips

  • Clean your pup’s teeth at least three times a week using a toothbrush toy, dog chews, dental treats, or tooth wipes.
  • Your Spoodle can develop tear stains so clean its eyes regularly. Prevent infection by cleaning its ears frequently.
  • Make sure you use good quality shampoo to avoid skin disorders and eye problems.

Exercise

Spoodle puppies are energetic so a daily walk around the block is recommended. Exercise your dog between 20 and 30 minutes at a pace that it is comfortable with. You can opt for two short walks or a long one per day to keep your pup fit.

 

Aside from walking, Spoodles like running and playing. Take yours to the park where it can freely romp, socialise with other dogs, and release its energy. If your pup falls behind or starts to pant, take it as a sign that it needs to rest.

Training

The Spoodle is a very intelligent dog, making it easy to train. But while it is obedient and eager to please, it can be a little headstrong because of its Poodle genes. When teaching your pup commands and tricks, remember to be patient and use positive reinforcement.

 

This crossbreed needs early socialisation for it to grow up into a well-rounded dog. Expose your pup to different people, things, sights, and sounds while it is still young.
