This is a rather rare Doodle pup, owing mainly to the uncommon nature of its Tibetan Terrier parent. However, the best things in life always come in limited quantities. These pups are incredibly friendly and have the potential to become best friends with absolutely anyone. They get along with everyone, regardless of age or species. This is a gentle pup because of which the Tiboodle makes a great family pet. They are incredibly intelligent thanks to the genes they inherit from their Poodle parents and are also great dogs for allergy sufferers who are looking for a low-shedding furry BFF!
It can’t be said for sure exactly when this breed first arrived on the scene. Hybrid breeds usually do not get the same level of attention and fanfare as their purebred parents, which results in an acute lack of documentation when it comes to these pups. A rough estimate of the time and place of origin in some time during or after the 1980s in the United States, since that is when Doodle popularity took off. No breeder has come forward with the claim of having crossed the two breeds to get the Tiboodle for the first time, and chances are this delightful little pup existed in nature through accidental mating long before any intentional efforts to bring the two breeds together began.
If there’s one word that describes the personality of this pup, it is the word friendly! The Tiboodle is highly affectionate and loves to be around their humans. They are best not left alone since these pups may develop some anxiety-related issues. If you plan on being away for long hours with your house left unattended, then the Tiboodle is not the right dog for you. This is an obedient and clever dog thanks to the Poodle genes, and they generally do not misbehave. Introduce your pup to new sights and sounds as well as different people and animals from an early age so that it can grow up to have a well-rounded personality. If this is your first time getting a dog, consider a puppy kindergarten class. To get a good idea of the kind of personality your Tiboodle puppy will grow into, try spending time around the Poodle or the Tibetan Terrier parents. Their personalities are usually fairly good indicators of the kind of personality your pup will grow up to have.
The Tiboodle is normally a medium-sized pup since most mating of the Tibetan Terrier takes place with the Standard Poodle. However, this is a rare and new breed, and there really aren’t any standards when it comes to sizes, which means a large variation can occur from one Tiboodle to the next.
The Tibetan Terrier and Poodle have both been victims of severe inbreeding, which cause genetic illnesses to surface more often and weaken the pup. The Tiboodle manages to steer clear of many of the devastating effects of a limited gene pool due to their mixed nature. The larger gene pool means they usually have some level of hybrid vigor. However, it is best to have healthy parents, so be sure to check the health clearance certificates of both parent dogs when getting your puppy from a breeder. Also, it is important to be careful not to buy from breeders that mate dogs that are younger than two years old since that is when most genetic illnesses begin to show symptoms. Regular visits to the vet are very important to ensure your Tiboodle is growing up healthy and any issues that develop are caught early and nipped in the bud.
The Tiboodle is a fairly active dog and will need daily exercise to stay feeling its absolute best. If the Tiboodble is not allowed to release its pent-up energy through exercise or is left without any mental stimulation that can keep boredom at day, these pups may become destructive. It is best to leave them with plenty of toys and trinkets when they’re alone so that they stay engaged. Poodles are highly intelligent, and their intelligence is inherited by the Tiboodle, which is quick to understand commands and pick up desired behaviors.
When it comes to feeding, it is always a good idea to speak to your veterinarian to assess your Tiboodle’s exact nutritional needs. Use this information to build a sustainable meal plan for your pooch. It is best to steer clear of free-feeding or to give just one large meal a day since these practices may lead to gastric issues such as bloat or unnecessary weight gain in the case of free-feeding.
The coat of the Tiboodle depends on which parent it takes after. On average, these dogs are very low shedders.
How much maintenance they will require depends on the coat that the Tiboodle has inherited from its parents. It is generally a good idea to brush their coat a few times a week to keep it free of tangles and matted fur. It is also important to only bathe them when necessary, as excessive bathing can dry out and irritate your Tiboodle’s skin.
