The Ultimate Guide to Mini Doodles

At Smeraglia, we specialize in a delightful variety of Mini Doodles, each with its unique charm but sharing many endearing qualities. Our focus spans three breeds: the English Goldendoodle, Teddy Bear Schnoodle, and Teddy Bear Twoodle. These breeds represent the pinnacle of companion dogs, offering families the joy and companionship of a pet with specific considerations for allergy sufferers and those desiring minimal shedding in their homes.

The Three Breeds: An Overview

1. English Goldendoodle: This breed combines the gentle nature of the English Golden Retriever with the intelligence and hypoallergenic qualities of a Toy Poodle. Known for their loving demeanor and smart wit, English Goldendoodles make excellent family pets.

2. Teddy Bear Schnoodle: A cross between a Schnauzer and a Poodle, Teddy Bear Schnoodles are known for their adorable, teddy bear-like appearance and friendly personalities. They inherit the Schnauzer’s loyalty and the Poodle’s low-shedding, hypoallergenic coat, making them wonderful companions.

3. Teddy Bear Twoodle: Unique to Smeraglia, the Teddy Bear Twoodle is a blend of the Teddy Bear Goldendoodle and the Teddy Bear Schnoodle. These dogs are specially designed for the ultimate hypoallergenic and non-shedding experience, ideal for those with severe allergies.

Allergy Friendliness and Shedding

The primary distinction among these Mini Doodles lies in their “allergy codes” or the level of allergy-friendliness and their shedding properties. From the Teddy Bear Twoodle, known for its supreme hypoallergenic qualities, to the English Goldendoodle, each breed offers varying degrees of compatibility for allergy sufferers and preferences for low to non-shedding coats. Despite these differences, all our Mini Doodles share an inherent quality of being more accommodating to those with allergies compared to many other breeds.

Shared Qualities

Outside of their allergy and shedding distinctions, our Mini Doodles share a plethora of similar traits that make them the beloved breeds they are today:

• Temperament: All our Mini Doodles are known for their friendly, affectionate nature. They thrive on human interaction and are excellent with children and other pets.
• Intelligence: High intelligence and eagerness to please make these breeds easy to train. They excel in learning commands, tricks, and adapting to household routines.
• Activity Level: These energetic breeds require regular exercise to stay healthy and happy. They love walks, playtime, and mental stimulation through interactive toys and games.
• Health: Generally, Mini Doodles are healthy dogs, with a lifespan ranging from 10 to 15 years. Proper care, regular veterinary check-ups, and a balanced diet contribute to their well-being.
• Grooming: While their grooming needs may vary slightly based on coat type, all Mini Doodles benefit from regular brushing to prevent matting and keep their coats shiny and healthy.

In Conclusion

Whether you’re drawn to the English Goldendoodle for its classic charm, the Teddy Bear Schnoodle for its unique blend of loyalty and friendliness, or the Teddy Bear Twoodle for its unmatched hypoallergenic properties, Smeraglia’s Mini Doodles offer something special for every family. Understanding the slight differences in allergy friendliness and shedding can help you choose the perfect companion that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle. Regardless of the breed you choose, you can expect a loving, intelligent, and joyful addition to your family.
