Springerdoodle

Updated on 05/24/2021 by Sadie

If you’re looking for a pup that will make a great addition to your family, look no further! The Springerdoodle is a highly affectionate and playful dog with a friendly nature that makes it an absolute delight to have around. The result of a cross between a Poodle and an English Springer Spaniel, these dogs are one of the most popular members of the Doodle club, and looking at them, we can understand why. The Springerdoodle is the ideal family pet and is bound to put a smile on the faces of even the most dog-resistant people out there!

Origin & History of Springerdoodles

While the Springerdoodle is a highly popular breed, it is difficult to pin down the exact origins of this pup. Unlike their purebred parents, there hasn’t been much documentation when it comes to the Springerdoodle, and so far, no breeder has laid claim to bringing the Poodle and the English Springer Spaniel together for the first time. Chances are, this playful dog existed through accidental breeding long before any intentional efforts to breed the two parent breeds began. All that is truly known about the Springerdoodle’s origins is that they have existed since the late 20th Century and were first bred in the United States.

Personality and Temperament

The Springerdoodle has an incredibly sweet and loving temperament. These are gentle dogs that love to goof around, guaranteed to light up any room that they are in. They are incredibly friendly and thrive off of the attention of their owners. The Springerdoodle will get along with almost anyone. They are good with children and well as with other pets. When it comes to the Springerdoodle, it is a peace-loving and affectionate pup that just wants to have some fun. Don’t count on your Springerdoodle to alert you in case of intruders. They seldom bark, and where you see an intruder, they see a potential new friend.

Springerdoodle Size

The Springerdoodle is a medium-sized dog. However, there may be variations in size. An average Springerdoodle puppy will grow up to be anywhere between 16-24 inches tall and weigh around 30 to 60 pounds.

Springerdoodle Health

While the Springerdoodle is a relatively healthy breed thanks to some level of hybrid vigor that the dogs possess due to mixed breeding, there are certain illnesses that your Springerdoodle may be predisposed to. Some health issues that your pup may develop in their lifetime include epilepsy, hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism, patellar luxation, bloat, and ear infections.

Springerdoodle Care and Training

While the Springerdoodle does not need much intense exercise, it is necessary to satisfy their moderate needs for physical stimulation to ensure they stay happy and healthy. A fenced yard or a dog park are the ideal places where this pup can burn off some excess energy. They love going on walks and playing fun games of fetch. Let them off their leash every once in a while as long as the space is safe and protected. Springerdoodles love to swim and will be happy to jump into any body of water. Due to their high levels of intelligence, it is important to keep them mentally stimulated as well. Give them toys and trinkets to play with to keep boredom at bay. If your Springerdoodle gets too bored, they may cross over into destructive territory. This pooch is incredibly easy to train thanks to its smarts and eagerness to please. With a little positive reinforcement, these pups will be picking up tricks and desired behaviors in no time. Steer clear of negative reinforcements like yelling since this will probably do the dog more harm than good.

Feeding

All dogs are different, and so are their nutritional needs. When designing a diet plan for your Springerdoodle, it is best to speak to a professional. Your veterinarian can help you come up with a sustainable feeding plan that will keep your dog happy and healthy. On average, a Springerdoodle should consume anywhere between 1.5 to 2.5 cups of high-quality dry dog food in a day. Steer clear of free-feeding to avoid any unnecessary weight gain, and instead of giving your pooch one big meal a day, split their recommended daily serving into two to three separate meals. This will help to prevent bloat and keep your pup satisfied.

Coat Color, Types, Shedding

The Springerdoodle has a soft, thick, and double-layered coat that can grow anywhere from medium to long. The coat is generally low-shedding and low-dander if the Springerdoodle has more dominant Poodle genes. If the dog has dominant genes from the other parent, then shedding may be more frequent.

Springerdoodle Grooming

The Springerdoodle’s coat will require regular grooming. Gentle brushing once a week should be enough to keep your pup’s coat free of any tangles or matted fur. It is a good idea to trim to the coat during summers to keep your pup cool. Bathe them only when necessary as excessive bathing can dry out their skin.
