The poodle is a highly intelligent breed. These dogs are also immensely trainable and possess a hypoallergenic coat, making them one of the most popular breeds of dogs in the U.S. Is it any wonder that “designer” dog breeders have endeavored to combine these fantastic poodle characteristics with the best traits of other breeds? I think not. If you are interested in bringing a poodle hybrid into your family, your choices are many.

Whether you choose a designer poodle hybrid or a purebred dog, please be sure to buy your furry friend from a reputable breeder. Ideally, you should visit the breeder’s property to see for yourself that the kennels are clean or the dogs are well cared for in the home. Do not buy from a breeder who will not allow you to visit with their dogs before making your purchase.
