Selecting the Ideal Doodle Companion

Our delightful Doodles, including the English Goldendoodles, TeddyBear Schnoodles, and TeddyBear Twoodles, are bred to suit various lifestyles, including those of allergy sufferers. Choosing your new friend involves more than love at first sight; it’s about finding a perfect match for your living situation, activity level, and allergy sensitivity. As specialists in these breeds, we’re dedicated to guiding you toward finding your low-allergen Doodle partner.

Allergy-Friendly Considerations

What sets our Teddy Bear Doodles apart is not just their Good looks and charming personalities,  but also their coats, which are tailored for those with allergies. By focusing on low to non-shedding breeds, we aim to minimize dander and hair, creating a more comfortable environment for individuals with allergies. Identifying your or your family’s specific allergy tolerance is essential, as reactions can vary. We recommend personal interaction with our dogs to confidently choose a companion that enhances your life without the worry of allergies.

To Rescue or Adopt: Your Path to Companionship

The decision to rescue a Doodle or to adopt from a reputable breeder like us often depends on your preferences regarding the dog’s background and specific breed traits. Rescuing can enrich your life by providing a loving home to a dog in need, while adopting from a breeder gives you insight into the specific characteristics and health backgrounds crucial for managing allergies.

Puppy or Adult Doodle? Making an Informed Decision

Choosing between an energetic puppy and a more tranquil adult dog is a significant consideration. Puppies bring the excitement of growth and learning but require a commitment to training. Adult dogs may offer a calmer presence and often come with some training, potentially making them a better fit for certain allergy-sensitive homes.

Preparing Your Allergy-Friendly Home

Creating a welcoming, safe, and allergy-conscious space for your Doodle is paramount. Essential preparations include toys, leashes, collars, high-quality food, and grooming tools designed for regular upkeep, ensuring your home supports both your and your Doodle’s health and comfort.

Specialized Doodle Training: A Foundation for Success

When you choose one of our Doodles, you’re also offered the opportunity to enroll them in our exclusive Doodle Prep School programs. These stay-and-train options are designed to equip your puppy with a solid foundation of manners and obedience, ensuring they return home ready to integrate smoothly into your family life. This unique training advantage sets both you and your Doodle up for a successful, joyful relationship right from the start.

Healthcare, Grooming, and Allergy Management

Regular veterinary care and a consistent grooming regimen are essential, especially for maintaining a low-allergen environment. We’ll share expert advice on optimal diets, grooming practices, and overall health care to keep allergens at bay and ensure your Doodle thrives.

The Joy of Doodle Companionship

The bond between a Doodle and their family is truly special. We’ll guide you through engaging in activities that enrich both your lives, fostering a deep, lasting connection filled with playful adventures and restful cuddles.
