Facts on Doodle Dog Breeds, Popularity

Doodles first appeared in the 1990s as breeders experimented crossing Poodles with other dogs. Their friendly nature and low-shedding coats quickly grew very popular.


From tiny "Toy" Doodles under 12 lbs to "Standard" Doodles over 50 lbs, these Poodle crosses come in a wide range of sizes.


While traits vary, most Doodles inherit intelligence and low-shedding qualities from their Poodle parents.


Goldendoodles and Labradoodles lead in popularity, but many other Poodle crosses like Bernedoodles and Aussiedoodles have ardent fans. 


Depending on breeder reputation, location and other factors, Doodle puppy prices typically range from $1,000 to $5,000.


Moderate exercise matches their playful energy. Regular brushing and professional grooming helps manage their hair.
