SpringerDoodles are now my favorite type of Doodle! Over the past couple of decades, many of the requests I received were for a smaller version of the GoldenDoodle. I never wanted to breed with a miniature poodle because of their temperament and I wanted to stay with the best F1 generation of dog. After a lot of research, I decided SpringerDoodles would be the best answer. These dogs are a wonderful solution for families who are seeking a medium-sized doodle with an exceptional soft hypoallergenic, non-shedding coat and very few health issues.
I cross an AKC English Springer Spaniel with an AKC Standard Poodle to produce SpringerDoodles (sometimes called Sproodles). The SpringerDoodle pups are quickly house trained, eager to please, and bond quickly with their families. I’m delighted to have parti-color, tri-color, and cinnamon puppies. Most of our pups have a white blaze like their sire’s. I remove dewclaws but I do not have their tails bobbed.
The coat of the Springerdoodle can range but it is usually about 2-3 inches long with wavy to softly curled hair, a beautiful fleece coat. Hair on the tail, legs, and ears is usually longer and slightly feathered while the hair on the head and muzzle are shorter. SpringerDoodles are consistently no-shed or very low-shed more so than the GoldenDoodles or LabraDoodles. This is because the English Springer Spaniel does not have a thick heavy-shedding under coat.
Our SpringerDoodles are very family-oriented, highly intelligent, and best of all…….they do not shed.
Temperament: The Springerdoodle breed of dog is a very sweet and happy breed of dog that is known for their playful temperament. Because I only have STANDARD poodles in my breeding program the pups are very gentle, mellow and affectionate and they are very loyal to their family. They do well with children of all ages and usually get along well with everyone. The Springerdoodle is usually very good with other dogs and pets and they will even be accepting of strangers.
Females: 16-21 inches and 35-45 lbs.
Males: 18-23 inches and 45-55 lbs.
My F1 Springerdoodle pups have no known health problems. Again in my breeding program I only breed purebred AKC Standard Poodles with a purebred AKC English Spinger Spaniel so the most common problem the pups can inherit is hip dysplasia. Since I have my parents’ hips checked before breeding we have no pups that have this inherited problem.
10 to 14 years
A good brushing once a week is all that’s required to groom a Springerdoodle.
