The spoodle is a hybrid of a cocker spaniel (English or American) and a Poodle (toy or miniature). We breed the Miniature Spoodle. They have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. The spoodle is a handsome dog with long shaggy to wavy hair and large brown eyes. Being a crossbreed, their appearance can vary significantly from dog to dog. The spoodle will grow to approx 35cm to the shoulder. Both Poodles and Cocker Spaniels which make up the Spoodle are highly intelligent breeds and the Spoodle is a very quick learner. Early socialization and obedience are recommended for all Spoodles. Spoodles are fairly easy to train they make wonderful training students. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
The spoodle is a lively and affectionate family dog. They are very sociable and often have outgoing personalities. They can adapt to living in a small home or apartment as long as they receive adequate daily exercise.
