Irish Doodle

Irish Doodles are a mix between a Poodle and Irish Setter. They combine the intelligence and non-shedding coat of a Poodle with the friendly, happy-go-lucky nature of an Irish Setter.

Irish Doodle Breed

Mini Irish Doodle puppies are a cross between a mini Poodle and an Irish Setter. Standard Irish Doodles are a mix of a Standard Poodle and a Irish Setter. When a first generation Irish Doodle is crossed back to an unrelated Poodle, the result is a f1b Irish Doodle (75% Poodle) or F1b mini Irish Doodle (75% mini Poodle).

Irish Doodles seek to combine the intelligence and non-shedding coat of a poodle with the friendly, happy-go-lucky nature of an Irish Setter. Families that know dogs, realize that Irish Setters are perennial on the list of best dogs with kids, because of their friendly nature. Poodles often make the list as well because of their intelligence, desire to please, and hypoallergenic coat.

Irish Doodles and mini Irish Doodles are usually great with kids because of their slightly active temperament. Irish Doodles are very lighthearted and will be entirely devoted to your family.

This unique mix results in a loving, affectionate, and energetic companion that is suitable for families, singles, and seniors alike.

Physical Characteristics

Irish Doodles typically have an athletic build with a medium to large size, ranging from 20-30 inches in height and weighing between 40-70 pounds. They have a shaggy coat that can come in various colors such as black, white, brown, or red. Their coat is low-shedding and requires regular brushing to prevent matting.

Playful and Energetic Nature

One of the most notable traits of Irish Doodles is their high energy level. They love to play and are always up for a game or outdoor adventure. This makes them an excellent choice for active families who enjoy hiking, running, or playing fetch in the park.

Intelligent and Easy to Train

Both Poodles and Irish Setters are known for their intelligence, and the Irish Doodle inherits this trait as well. They are quick learners and love to please their owners, making them easy to train with positive reinforcement techniques. This also makes them suitable for various activities like agility training or learning new tricks.

Affectionate and Loyal Companions

Irish Doodles have a loving and affectionate nature, making them great companions for all kinds of households. They form strong bonds with their owners and thrive on human companionship. They also get along well with other pets, making them a great addition to multi-pet households.

Potential Health Issues

As with any mixed breed, Irish Doodles may inherit some health issues from their parent breeds. Some common concerns to watch out for include hip dysplasia, ear infections, and allergies. However, with proper care, regular exercise, and a balanced diet, Irish Doodles can live a healthy life of 10-15 years.

Final Thoughts

Irish Doodles are a wonderful combination of two popular dog breeds that bring out the best in each other. They are playful, intelligent, affectionate, and make great family pets. If you are looking for a loyal and energetic companion, the Irish Doodle might be the perfect addition to your household. Be sure to research reputable breeders or consider adoption from a shelter if you are interested in adding this lovable breed to your family. So, go ahead and give an Irish Doodle a loving forever home!

Do Irish Doodles shed?

Overall, Irish Doodles are a great breed choice for those who suffer from pet allergies or who want to avoid the added mess of dog hair in their home, as they tend to be low-shedding and hypoallergenic. For those who deal with allergies, we encourage you to consider adopting a curly-coated pup. Typically, the curlier the coat, the less shedding that pup will experience as an adult. However, it’s still important to brush them regularly to reduce any shedding and keep their coat looking healthy and beautiful.
