Size Compatibility: Four Categories

Both the English Goldendoodle and the Teddy Bear Twoodle are available in four distinct sizes, making them remarkably versatile and suited to various homes and lifestyles:

• Extra Small: For Twoodles, this size typically encompasses those under 20 pounds. It’s ideal for individuals or families living in apartments or smaller spaces, where a compact, easily manageable pet is preferred.

• Small: Weighing between 20 to 30 pounds, small-sized Twoodles offer a slightly larger option while still being convenient for most living situations, including urban environments.

• Medium: Falling in the 35 to 55 pound range, medium Twoodles and Goldendoodles are well-suited for families looking for a more substantial but still manageable dog.

• Standard: The largest size, standard Twoodles and Goldendoodles exceed 55 pounds, catering to those desiring a full-sized companion for active lifestyles or spacious living conditions.

This comprehensive size range signifies that both Twoodles and Goldendoodles are adaptable to nearly any home environment or family size, ensuring there’s a perfect match for everyone.

Enhanced Allergy-Friendly Coats

In terms of coat characteristics, Twoodles have an edge for those with allergies. Their coats are designed to be more hypoallergenic, thanks to the deliberate mixing of the Poodle’s and Schnauzer’s low-shedding fur. This makes Twoodles an attractive option for potential owners concerned about allergies or seeking a pet with minimal shedding.

Superior Trainability with a Focus

The inclusion of Schnauzer genetics in Twoodles not only contributes to their hypoallergenic coats but also enhances their trainability. This breed is known for its sharpness, focus, and obedience, traits that are highly valued in training environments. As a result, Twoodles inherit a capacity for learning and responsiveness that is slightly accentuated compared to Goldendoodles, making them excellent candidates for a wide range of training, from basic commands to more specialized tasks.


The availability of Twoodles and English Goldendoodles in four sizes—extra small, small, medium, and standard—underscores their adaptability and appeal to a diverse array of dog lovers. While both breeds share many admirable qualities, including sociability, intelligence, and versatility, the Twoodle distinguishes itself with its more hypoallergenic coat and enhanced trainability, thanks to its unique breed heritage. Whether you’re drawn to the varied generational qualities of the English Goldendoodle or the specific attributes of the Teddy Bear Twoodle, both breeds offer the potential for joy, companionship, and a perfect fit for families and individuals alike.
