Boy | Girl I am often asked, what's the difference between the little boy and the little girl puppies. Boys are typically a bit more laid back or lazy and girls are a bit more nosy (typical women). I have observed this over the years with many puppies. They are all very loving and sweet , the Doodles are very friendly people loving dog, however.I personally believe that spaying & neutering a puppy as early as possible 6-8 months old , desexes them and they do not tend to show the male/female tendencies. I have never had a family contact me about a neutered male that was marking the house.
Weight Expectancy Typical Growth Chart: 2 x puppy's weight at 16 weeks
Living Conditions | Exercise Doodles require a moderate amount of exercise and their coats are high maintenance. They can live in the city or on a farm. They are social dogs and they are happiest when they are with people.
Grooming As a hybrid cross, Doodles will inherit fur that but usually something in-between their parents. Unclipped Doodles will have hair about 4-7 inches long, shorter on the face and longer on the body, tail and legs. From my observation, they grow about one inch a month. They require combing every day . Depending on how often the dog is groomed, clipped Doodles are groomed several times a year.
Life Expectancy With good care and nutrition, about 10-15 years.
Color The color of doodles just like poodles can change some , colors can lighten or darken some over time.
