What is a Poodle Mix or Doodle Dog?
Doodles of all shapes and sizes have grown in popularity in the last 20 to 30 years due to their hypoallergenic coats and loveable natures.
Adding another purebred dog breed to the Poodle can negate some of the health issues often associated with purebred dogs.
They also typically get along well with other dogs, are great with children, and are very intelligent and easy to train.
Due to their popularity, there are hundreds of Doodle mixes out there, with some of the most sought-after and popular dogs being the Goldendoodle and Labradoodle, with breeders even working to classify these dogs as an independent breed.
Quick Choices for Top Doodles
With so many varieties of Doodles out there, it can be challenging to choose the right one for you. Here is a quick guide to selecting the best Poodle crossbreed for your home:
- Best low-shedding poodle mixes: Goldendoodle, Labradoodle, Bidoodle
- Best poodle mixes for families: Cavapoo, Bernedoodle, Labradoodle
- Best poodle mixes for kids: Cavapoo, Newfypoo, Cockapoo
- Best poodle mixes for apartments and small spaces: Cockapoo, Maltipoo, Toy Goldendoodle
52 Most Popular Poodle Mixes
Born from Poodles, and often second, third, or even fourth-generation mixes, Doodles are developing into breeds of their own.
Let’s take a closer look at over 50 of the top Poodle mixes out there as we discover the pros and cons of each mixed breed.
1. Labrador Retriever Poodle mix (AKA Labradoodle)
A prevalent Poodle mix, the Labradoodle, has short, tight, curly fur that can come in a range of colors. Labradoodles look similar to a Poodle with a stockier, heavier frame.
Labrador Retrievers can be crossed with the three Poodle varieties to get Standard, Medium, or Mini Labradoodles.
Standard Labradorpoos stand around 21 to 24 inches (53 to 61 cm) tall, Medium Labbidoos come in between 17 to 20 inches (43 to 51 cm) high, and Miniature Labradoodles are only 14 to 16 inches (36 to 41 cm) tall.
These dogs are eager to please and obey commands well but can get over-excited quickly.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Poodle mix (AKA Cavapoo)
The Cavapoo is an attention-seeking dog with a very low prey drive. The size of the Spaniel parent breed, with a slight frame and long, silky coat, the Cavapoo is unlikely to weigh more than 25 pounds (11 kg).
Cavapoos are beautiful dogs, but with springs in their feet, they have a habit of jumping up for attention and are also known to suffer from separation anxiety.
These dogs love to play and are very curious, thriving in homes where they are showered with attention and have other dogs with which they can romp around.
3. English Sheepdog Poodle mix (AKA Sheepadoodle)
A dog with a strong prey drive and a working focus, the Sheepadoodle is a talented, dependable cross. Lots of space is essential for these dogs who love having a job to do.
They tend to nip at the ankles of small children but are generally calm-tempered companions if exercised regularly. The good news is, these dogs rarely bark and don’t drool either.
With a thick, tight, curly coat, that gives the Old English Sheepdog Poodle mix a fluffy teddy-bear-like appearance, these dogs have high grooming needs.
Their coat can come in all white, all black, or a patchwork black and white effect with panda-like markings on the face. As a non-shedding Poodle mix, they are perfect for allergy sufferers.
4. German Shepherd Poodle mix (AKA Shepadoodle)
The highly intelligent Shepardoodle is a charming, confident dog that is also easily trainable. These dogs have an alert nature that makes them fantastic guard dogs.
As strong dogs, they also need a firm owner that can handle them during exercise. Without enough daily exercise, they are prone to obesity and can get rather destructive if bored.
Loyal to their families, Shepadoodles are very good with children; however, their guard dog instincts can mean they take a while to warm up to strangers.
While a generally healthy crossbreed, Shepadoodles can suffer from hip dysplasia and Von Willebrand’s disorder, with both of these ailments common in their parent breeds.
5. Shih Tzu Poodle mix (AKA Shihpoo)
The Shihpoo is a very stubborn dog that needs a lot of training as they don’t have the eager-to-please nature of some other Poodle mixes.
This dog is best suited to calmer homes without children, where they can steal all the attention.
Thankfully older people will love this breed as they do not require as much exercise and are pretty content with long walks and lazy cuddles.
Shihpoos are small dogs, standing between 8 and 15 inches (20 to 38 cm) tall and weighing only 7 to 20 pounds (3 to 9 kg).
These dogs have a super cute teddy-bear-like appearance, with either a soft wavy coat or tight curls. Shihpoos can be found in various colors, with the most common being cream, tan, apricot, white, gold, red, and brown.

6. Siberian Husky Poodle mix (AKA Huskydoodle)
The Poosky, Huskydoodle, Siberpoo, or Huskapoo are agile, active dogs best suited to experienced pet owners.
These dogs always want attention, can be stubborn, and sometimes even difficult to handle. They do well in homes with large yards where they have plenty of space to play.
Huskydoodles are becoming increasingly sought after because of their high intelligence.
They can be trained to do many different tasks while also making good companions for a firm owner who can handle their mischievous streak.
With a thick double-layered shaggy coat, these dogs do exceptionally well in cooler climates.
7. Pembroke Welsh Corgi Poodle mix (AKA Corgipoo)
A cute hybrid dog, the Corgipoo has a double coat that is likely to shed consistently.
These charming curly-haired dogs have the short legs of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi parent, with an elongated body, fox-like face, dark-almond-shaped eyes, and an adorable black button nose.
The Corgipoo can come in various colors, with merle, speckled or spotted patterns also a possibility.
A loving, affectionate breed, Corgipoos get along well with pretty much anyone. They love company but can also quickly get bored, with a stubborn, mischievous streak.
They are incredibly playful but also very affectionate dogs, making them a sweet addition to virtually any home.
8. Chihuahua Poodle mix (AKA Chipoo)
The Chipoo may be small in size but with a big personality. These dogs are full of beans and need lots of playtime. Without regular exercise, these dogs can get overweight and become very yappy and highly strung.
While friendly dogs to their parents, they can be very protective, even aggressive to strangers and other animals.
Chipoos typically resemble a fluffy Chihuahua with a small, compact body, a long tail, and oversized ears.
While male Chipoos will be bigger than their female counterparts, these dogs generally weigh between 3 and 20 pounds (1 to 9 kg), standing between 5 and 15 inches (13 to 38 cm) in height.
9. Australian Shepherd Poodle mix (AKA Aussiedoodle)
The Aussiedoodle makes a good companion dog and a hard worker, often used as service or therapy dogs. These dogs look like furry teddy bears, which is a good thing as they love cuddles.
Outgoing, social, and friendly dogs, Aussiedoodles love to play and need lots of exercises. They can, however, tend to herd smaller animals and even children.
Aussiedoodles come in a range of sizes, depending on if they have been bred with a Toy, Miniature, or Standard Poodle.
Toy or Miniature Aussiedoodles are highly sought after and stand just 10 inches (25cm) tall, weighing under 25 pounds (11 kg).
10. Pitbull Poodle mix (AKA Pit Boodle)
Medium-sized, fiercely loyal, and easy to train, the Pit Boodle is a family-orientated, very smart breed. These dogs are known for their eager-to-learn personalities and their high level of intelligence.
When crossed with a Poodle, the Pitbull nature is toned down, making for an obedient, loving companion without too much of an aggressive streak.
However, they will need to be trained from a young age to ensure any early aggressive tendencies are channeled correctly.
Just remember, these dogs can get stressed quickly, particularly when it comes to loud noises. They also tend to destroy things when bored.
11. Schnauzer Poodle mix (AKA Schnoodle)
The Schnoodle is a beautiful dog with a fluffy coat that is perfect for allergy sufferers, although it does take a few generations to perfect this mix.
A well-bred Schnoodle will have a round head, short muzzle, almond-shaped puppy dog eyes with long eyelashes, small floppy ears, and a lean, athletic body.
These dogs are likely to be a bit shy and may need quite a bit of socialization when young. With a high energy level, they also need quite a bit of exercise and playtime.
Schnoodles are also very likely to be very protective of their family.
However, their always happy energy will keep you smiling all day long. These dogs seem always to have a cheerful disposition, and as a result, are often used as therapy dogs.
12. Maltese Poodle mix (AKA Maltipoo)
Maltipoos travel well and quickly adapt to various environments, making them well-suited to owners with small homes.
They also never really get very big, usually being the cross of a Maltese and a Miniature or Toy Poodle. You can expect them to weigh between 5 and 20 pounds (2 to 9 kg) and stand 8 to 12 inches (20 to 30 cm) tall.
These social dogs love attention and should not be left alone for long periods. Loyal and affectionate, they need lots of playtime and oodles of cuddles.
They love nothing more than to be the center of attention and accompany you as you go about your daily tasks. The Maltipoo also tends to bark a lot, especially when not fully stimulated or given the attention they crave.
13. Border Collie Poodle mix (AKA Bordoodle)
The Bordoodle is a smart, hard-working dog that needs to run and herd. These dogs need to be given a job to do and will excel at agility challenges.
As a result, these dogs need active owners prepared to spend lots of time on training.
When they have completed their daily tasks, Bordoodles need to be part of the family and should not be kept in kennels outdoors.
As Border Collies shed a fair amount, this is one Poodle mix that won’t necessarily be hypoallergenic.
14. Irish Setter Poodle mix (AKA Irish Doodle)
A happy-go-lucky breed, the Irish Doodle has a vibrant personality and an eager-to-please, easy-to-train nature. They make great exercise companions as they love to run and swim.
As both parent breeds were created to assist hunters, these dogs excel when given a job to do, making them great for owners who want to try their hand at agility or obedience training.
Their high-maintenance coat is long and silky and typically a gorgeous deep red color.
While Irish Setters can be bred with Miniature or Standard Poodles, the Irish Doodle generally is a medium to large-sized dog that weighs between 40 and 70 pounds (18 and 32 kg).
15. Bichon Poodle mix (AKA Poochon or Bidoodle)
The Poochon or Bidoodle is a toy-sized Poodle mix with an affectionate nature and a need to be cuddled.
Due to their small size, the Bichon Frise Poodle mix does well in any environment and doesn’t need as much exercise as other Poodle mix dogs.
These dogs are very vocal and love to bark, howl, and whine. As they suffer from separation anxiety, it is necessary to train this dog to be alone when they are young.
16. Beagle Poodle mix (AKA Poogle)
Affectionate and playful, Poogles thrive in homes with children where they will be provided with lots of activity. Just keep a close eye on them when out and about as they tend to wander off, following their nose.
The good thing is, as very intelligent dogs, they are easy to train.
These small dogs typically weigh between 11 and 25 pounds (5 and 11 kg) and have a medium-length, wavy coat. This coat can be tan, white, brown, or black, or even a combination of these colors.
A healthy diet is essential for Poogles as these dogs love to eat and can easily overindulge, leading to obesity.
17. Great Dane Poodle mix (AKA Great Danoodle)
Despite their large size, Great Danoodles make very calm, loving, and loyal family dogs. They love spending time with people and other animals, even cats.
They thrive on showing you affection and proving their undying loyalty. They are also very vigilant dogs and so make for intimidating looking guard dogs.
These dogs typically have a thick, wavy, non-shedding coat that can come in a variety of colors. Their looks are characterized by a huge, square head, floppy ears, and long legs.
As a large breed, Great Danoodles will weigh between 80 and 100 pounds (30 and 45 kg).
18. Yorkie Poodle mix (AKA Yorkipoo)
The Yorkiepoo is a boisterous, toy-sized dog that needs quite a bit of training and attention. Their high prey drive and tendency to be vocal means the Yorkshire Terrier Poodle mix dog can be a bit yappy.
Unfortunately, these dogs do have a reputation for poor health and several behavioral issues. This playful breed is, however, very social, especially with other dogs.
A super cute companion, Yorkiepoos are tough to resist. They stand just 7 to 12 inches (18 to 31 cm) tall and weigh 3 to 14 pounds (1 to 6 kg).
These petite dogs have huge, round eyes, a small nose, floppy ears, short legs, a tiny tail, and a fluffy coat that just begs to be cuddled.
19. Bernese Mountain Dog Poodle mix (AKA Bernedoodle)
A soft, fluffy mix, the Bernedoodle can weigh up between 70 and 90 pounds (32 to 41 kg) and stand 23 to 29 inches (58 to 74 cm) tall when the parent Poodle is of the standard variety.
However, adorable Miniature Bernedoodles are also possible, standing just 18 to 22 inches (46 to 56 cm) in height and weighing between 25 and 49 pounds (11 to 22 kg).
Bernedoodles are known for their soft tri-colored coat, which can vary from having a slight wavy to tight curls. Despite their size, these dogs crave cuddles!
These dogs have an easy-going nature that is loveable and even a little clumsy. Affectionate and playful, Bernedoodles make ideal dogs for families with children.
20. Rottweiler Poodle mix (AKA Rottle)
A reserved dog, the Rottle, Rottie Poo, or Rottie Doodle, does not get along well with strangers and other animals.
While they make good watchdogs, a good deal of training is essential to ensure no unwanted aggressive tendencies occur in your Rottle.
Socialization is also necessary while your Rottle is just a puppy, to get them used to other animals.
With consistent training, Rottles can be very kind and affectionate beings. These self-confident dogs will show their loving side around their family, even being suitable companions for children.
As a large poodle mix, they require a good deal of daily exercise and a large home with a big yard where they can play when they get a burst of energy.
21. Cocker Spaniel Poodle mix (AKA Cockapoo)
Cockerpoos are one of the oldest Poodle mixes, originating in the 1950s. These dogs love attention and are very friendly, making them well-suited to families with children and other animals, even cats.
With soft, silky fur and a small, slight body, Cockerpoos make excellent lapdogs. Unwanted behaviors can include excessive barking and a tendency to ignore recalls as they follow their nose.
22. Saint Bernard Poodle mix (AKA Saint Bernedoodle)
The Saint Bernedoodle or Saint Berdoodle is a loveable, loyal, huge Poodle mix that can easily weigh over 100 pounds (45 kg).
Their thick, fluffy fur has high grooming needs and makes these dogs best suited to colder climates. In the right environment, these dogs have an excellent lifespan for a large breed.
Both breeds are very loveable, so this mix will be like an oversized lapdog. These dogs love to be the center of attention and develop close bonds with their family members.
They will feel neglected and suffer from separation anxiety if left alone for extended periods.
Because they are so devoted to their humans, Saint Bernedoodles can get quite protective and territorial around strangers. This does make them fantastic watchdogs.
23. Pug Poodle mix (AKA Pugapoo)
The Pugapoo is excellent around children due to its gentle, people-oriented nature. Smart dogs, Pugapoos are very enthusiastic and energetic.
They also learn quickly but can have a stubborn streak. Unwanted behaviors in this breed can include barking and snoring.
The snoring is primarily due to the Pug parent’s flat face, which can lead to various health concerns in this hybrid.
The exact look of your Pugapoo puppy will be challenging to predict as these dogs can either have the curly Poodle coat or the shorter, smoother coat of the Pug.
They come in a wide range of colors and usually have a cute corkscrew tail, short legs, and a small, sturdy frame.
24. Pomeranian Poodle mix (AKA Pomapoo)
The Pomapoo is a small breed that doesn’t weigh more than around 12 pounds (5 kg). These dogs need to be brushed regularly and do shed, so are one of the Poodle mixes that aren’t considered hypoallergenic.
With enough playtime, this toy-sized breed does well in apartments, although they can tend to be vocal. They make super cute dogs that seek attention and any lap that will cuddle them.
25. Havanese Poodle mix (AKA Havapoo)
The friendly and outgoing Havapoo will always want to be by your side. These smart dogs are very sweet-natured and easy to train but require regular exercise to keep them happy and healthy.
They are curious and social dogs, making friends quickly, and unlike other small Poodle mixes, they don’t tend to bark a lot.
The beautiful hypoallergenic coat of the Havapoo is long and wavy and comes in various colors, even being multi-colored. The Havapoo’s coat can also change color as they get older.
These small dogs will have long bodies on short legs with big brown eyes and floppy ears. Due to their size, Havapoos are well suited to apartment living.
26. Dachshund Poodle mix (AKA Doxiepoo)
The Doxiepoo is a stubborn little breed that will love to chase birds, squirrels, and small animals. They do, however, also have a loving and affectionate side too.
This people-oriented side of the Doxiepoo’s personality makes them easily trainable. However, do be warned, this dog can have a stubborn, bold side as well.
With a long body on short legs, they are also absolutely adorable. However, the coat of the Doxiepoo can be challenging to predict, even within the same litter.
Some dogs will have a longer, wavy coat similar to the Poodle, while others may have the shorter, rougher coat of their Dachshund parent.
27. Doberman Poodle mix (AKA Doberdoodle)
An intelligent breed, the Doberdoodle combines the playfulness of the Poodle with the protective nature of the Doberman Pinscher.
These smart dogs are vigilant, always on the lookout, making them excellent guard dogs.
Doberdoodles are also known as velcro dogs as they always want to be in on the action, following you wherever you may go, even to the bathroom!
While intensely devoted to their family, Doberdoodles do not take well to strangers or other dogs. They also have an extremely independent, stubborn streak.
Thus they need an experienced, firm owner who knows how to control them and doesn’t let these dogs become the alpha.
28. Golden Retriever Poodle mix (AKA Goldendoodle)
The Goldendoodle is one of the most popular poodle mixes. These dogs need regular grooming to maintain their non-shedding coat, which can range in color from a light white to a deep golden brown.
Depending on which Poodle size they are bred with, you can get Miniature Goldendoodles, or standard size, or even Toy Goldendoodles. Goldendoodles are great with families and have a high energy level.
29. Newfoundland Poodle mix (AKA Newfypoo)
A giant dog that can weigh up to 150 pounds (68 kg) if bred with a Standard Poodle, the Newfypoo requires plenty of space, lots of attention, and oodles of playtime.
Despite their size, these dogs are kind, gentle and loving, while also being extremely loyal. As family-orientated animals, they become very attached to their owners.
Adorably fluffy, Newfypoos can come in a range of colors, from black to chocolate. Black and white or chocolate and white dogs are also common.
30. Great Pyrenees Poodle mix (AKA Pyredoodle)
A large dog that can easily weigh over 100 pounds (45 kg), the Pyredoodle will typically have white or tan hair that is very wavy and thick. These non-shedding dogs are known for their majestic appearance.
Despite their large size, these dogs are generally calm; however, they can be fearlessly loyal when protecting their owner and any children in the family.
This makes these dogs excellent guardians of the home, standing up to any intruder. With a stubborn streak, the Pyredoodle is not recommended for first-time dog owners who may find training a challenge.
31. Wheaten Doodle Poodle mix (AKA Whoodle)
The Whoodle is a large, energetic breed that is highly intelligent and thus easily trainable. They have the smarts of the Poodle parent breed and the outgoing personality of the Wheaten Terrier.
These dogs have a ton of energy and love to be entertained with long walks or mental challenges and puzzles.
They will have thick, heavy fur that can either be straight or wavy and will possibly also display a distinguished beard.
Thanks to the Poodle genetics, this breed is unlikely to shed, making them a good choice for people with allergies. Finding a Whoodle to call your own can be a challenge as this is a scarce breed.
32. Pekingese Poodle mix (AKA Peekapoo)
Although a very loving breed, the Peekapoo is plagued by many health issues. This dog’s Pekingese side is very prone to developing Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome due to their flat face.
This breed can also be aggressive towards small children, primarily as they work to protect themselves. On the positive side, the Peekapoo has no undercoat and thus has less intensive grooming needs.
33. West Highland White Terrier Poodle mix (AKA Westipoo)
A feisty crossbreed, the Westipoo or Westiepoo, is a high energy dog with an intense prey drive. These dogs should not be trusted around small animals such as cats and guinea pigs.
These agile, active dogs are sure to keep you on your toes and are not the ideal dog for first-time pet owners.
These little balls of fur are pretty hard to resist, though with their fluffy white coats, solid small bodies, and happy faces.
34. Boxer Poodle mix (AKA Boxerdoodle)
The Boxerdoodle is a playful dog that is easily trainable. A happy Poodle mix, these dogs love to pounce, bounce and have lots of fun.
Due to their energetic nature, Boxerdoodles do best in homes with a large yard.
These dogs can have the silky, short, easy to maintain the coat of the Boxer parent. They will typically also have the Boxer parent’s face with brown eyes, a black nose, and a strong jawline.
The build of the Boxerdoodle will be quite muscular and stocky with a stubby tail that is often docked.
35. Dalmatian Poodle mix (AKA Dalmadoodle)
Dalmadoodles, also known as Dalmapoos or Dalmationpoos, make excellent companions due to their loyal, devoted personalities.
These highly intelligent dogs are also easily trainable, but a good deal of patience is required as they have a stubborn streak. These dogs should also be exercised regularly and socialized from a young age.
These large dogs weigh between 40 and 70 pounds (18 and 32 kg) and can be quite unpredictable in terms of appearance. They can either fave a dense, curly coat or a fine, thin one.
However, what is likely is that they will have the Dalmatian’s black spots!
36. Cairn Terrier Poodle mix (AKA Cairnoodle)
The Cairnoodle, Poocan, or Cairnpoo is a small dog with a face that looks most like its Cairn Terrier parent and a rough water-resistant coat that can change color as your dog gets older.

These agile dogs love to play and perform and will enjoy learning and showing off new tricks. They love to be the center of attention and can get quite sensitive and depressed when ignored.
37. Springer Spaniel Poodle mix (AKA Springerdoodle)
The Springerdoodle is a trendy Poodle mix. These medium-sized dogs have a thick, double-layered coat that protects them from the water, as these dogs love to swim.

A larger Poodle mix, the Airedoodle weighs around 60 pounds (27 kg). These dogs are best suited to active owners as they have a lot of energy and require a fair amount of training and socialization.

The Eskipoo are very fluffy dogs that need a lot of grooming, but unlike many other Poodle mixes, they are not considered hypoallergenic due to their tendency to shed a lot.
These dogs have a lot of energy and are easily excitable. They also get separation anxiety if left alone for too long.
Cheerful and loving, these dogs do best in a home where they can be showered with love and affection all day long.
40. Weimaraner Poodle mix (AKA Weimardoodle)

A medium-sized, affectionate, and intelligent dog, Scoodles make very loyal companions. They are energetic and playful and great with kids but can snap if handled too roughly.
They are also alert dogs, making them fantastic watchdogs. The Scoodles coat is thinner than other Poodle mixes and thus easier to groom.
45. Chow Chow Poodle mix (AKA Choodle)
While the Chow Chow breed is known for its aloof, cat-like temperament, the Poodle side of this mix adds a more affectionate side to the Choodle.
These even-tempered dogs can even be quite loving, making them well-suited to family homes.
They also do best in homes where someone is around all day to give them attention, and there are other dogs they can play with. A playful pet, the Choodle will need daily exercise as they have very high energy levels.
When out exercising your dog, keep a close eye on them as their curious nature and high prey drives mean they tend to chase down smaller animals.
