     There has been a resurgence in citing "dominance" as a factor in dog behavior and dog-human relationships. This concept is based on outdated wolf studies that have long since been disproven. Contrary to popular belief, research studies of wolves in their natural habitat demonstrate that wolves are not dominated by an "alpha wolf" who is the most aggressive pack member. Rather, wolves operate with a social structure similar to a human family and depend on each other for mutual support to ensure the group's survival.

    What is a Teddy Bear Twoodle?

    A Twoodle is a designer breed resulting from the pairing of a Smeraglia English Goldendoodle with a Smeraglia Schnoodle.  It's a one of a kind puppy that "wows" all who receive one.

    Why Twoodles?

    This video features Dr. Corte and Sherri Smeraglia discussing the annoying little cough that's going around the southeast right now. It seems to have lot's of puppy owners concerned. It's good to be aware and know what to do if your fur babies come in contact or develope this little cough. Here at Smeraglia we are being very careful with our babies and will not allow any puppy to leave, if we see any symptoms that we are concerned about. I am very protective with these little ones and will not take any chances with them. Better to era on the side of caution.
