The Poodle is a popular dog breed, and it’s no wonder why. They’re one of the smartest breeds out there, they’re hypoallergenic, and they come in tons of different sizes and colors! But what you may not know is that there are many Poodle mixes out there.
Check these six breeds below if you want to learn something new about this dog breed!
The Bernedoodle is a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle. They are large dogs, typically weighing between 50 and 70 pounds. They have long fur that can be straight or wavy and can come in any color except merle.
Bernedoodles (also known as a Bernese Mountain Poo, Bernese Mountain Doodle, or a Bernese Poodle) are considered to be very intelligent dogs and are often recommended for families with children. The specificity of the bernedoodles breed is that being a hypoallergenic variant of the goofy and loveable Bernese Mountain Dog and are also known to be very friendly animals.
However, they do require a lot of exercise, so they may not be the best choice for families who don’t have a lot of time to spend outdoors.
Goldendoodles and Labradoodles Breeds
These breeds are crosses between a Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, and a Poodle. They are medium-sized dogs that can weigh from 35 to 70 pounds. They have long fur, typically straight or wavy, and can come in any color.
Goldendoodles and Labradoodles are considered to be very intelligent dogs and are also very often recommended for families with children because they’re suitable around them. This includes babies and young children who may lack the coordination to avoid accidentally hurting a dog when they play.
Goldendoodles also love being around people, which makes them a great companion for any family that likes spending time together. They’re also known for their easy-to-maintain coats so you won’t need to take them to the groomer as often as other breeds on this list, making them more affordable.
The Whoodle is a cross between a Wheaten Terrier and a Poodle. They are small dogs, typically weighing between 15 and 30 pounds. They have wiry fur that can be any color but black, and they often have a white blaze on their chest.

Whoodles are considered to be very intelligent dogs and are often recommended for families with children. They are also considered to be low-shedding and hypoallergenic, making them a good choice for people with allergies. Like all dogs, however, whoodles require regular exercise and proper nutrition to stay healthy.
The Pomapo is a cross between a Pomeranian and a Poodle. They are small dogs, typically weighing around 7 pounds. They have long fur that can be straight or wavy and come in any color.
Pomapos (also known as Pomskies) require regular grooming to keep their coats tangle-free, especially if they’re not regularly brushed with a Furminator brush. However, their coats do tend to be less likely to cause people with allergies to sneeze or itch because they don’t shed much hair at all.
The Poochon is a cross between a Bichon Frise and a Poodle. They are small dogs, weighing around 15 pounds on average.
Poochons (also known as Zuchon) have short fur that can be either straight or wavy and can come in a variety of colors, including black, white, brown, gray, and cream. Poochons are considered to be good with other animals and make great indoor pets.
They’re perfect lap dogs that love to be around their family, making them a great option for people who live in small apartments.
What defers them from other Doodles is their lack of inhibited nature. They are often considered to be more like Bichons in this regard, meaning that they’re not as protective of their family, and would allow people to approach them as opposed to other Doodles who are often more aloof.
The Cockapoo is a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. They are small dogs, typically weighing around 15 to 30 pounds.
Cockapoos make good family pets because they love being around people and are known to be very friendly animals. However, like all dogs, they require regular exercise and proper nutrition to stay healthy. They also need to be groomed at least every other week to keep their coats looking nice.
Poodle mixes (Doodles) can come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but they all share the same intelligence and need for exercise. All these breed mixes also share hypoallergenic coats and low shedding, making them great for families with allergies.
So, when you start looking at adding a new family member to your home, don’t forget that there are plenty of Poodle mix breeds out there that could be just what you’re looking for!
