Doodle Dogs: Top 14 types

Some of the most popular doodle breeds have been around for a while. Each doodle differs depending on which dog breed the Poodle has been mixed with, and whether it was a standard or miniature.

Each dog has slightly different results genetically. This applies not only to the appearance and temperament of your dog, but to any health problems they inherit from their parents.

A study comparing the behavior of Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, and purebred Standard Poodles was conducted. Labradoodles showed many traits similar to their purebred parents. However, they were much less aggressive than Miniature poodles. Goldendoodles were rated higher for aggression towards other dogs, fear of strangers and other dogs than Golden Retrievers and Miniature Poodles.
