Scoodle




Other Names : Scottish Shoodle



Origin

The scoodle is a hybrid of a Scottish terrier and a poodle (toy or miniature). They have become increasingly popular over the last 5 years. The aim of crossbreeding is to minimise the genetic diseases that can be present in pure-bred dogs. First-cross scoodles will have the maximum genetic benefits associated with a hybrid dog – in other words, a scoodle with one parent purebred Scottish terrier and one parent purebred poodle will have less genetic diseases than second or third cross scoodles.


Description

The scoodle is a small dog with a coat that can be wiry or medium length and wavy. When their hair is long, scoodles tend to grow the characteristic beard of the Scottish terrier. Being a crossbreed, their appearance can vary significantly from dog to dog.


Feeding & Ownership

It is best to feed the scoodle dry food as this breed is prone to tartar build up on their teeth.


Personality

The scoodle is a loving family companion. They are very loyal to their family unit and some can be cautious of new people and other animals, making them excellent guard dogs. Scoodles are energetic but can adapt to living in a small home or apartment as long as they receive adequate daily exercise. They can be quite vocal and prone to separation anxiety, so early socialisation and training is a must.


Grooming

Scoodles usually do not shed and are often tolerated by allergic people. Those with shorter coats will not need to be clipped as frequently, however will need brushing to avoid tangling. Scoodles with longer coats do take a great deal of care though, generally requiring professional grooming, as well as regular combing and brushing at home. These scoodles should be taken to a groomer about every six weeks for a clip of your choice. The scoodles’s ears need frequent cleaning or they may become infected and, daily teeth brushing is recommended or tartar will build up rapidly and lead to gingivitis. The eyes should be cleaned daily to prevent a build-up eye discharge and tear staining.
