Do Boxerdoodles shed?
People seem to have a fascination with Poodle mixed breeds. Why? Who knows; maybe because Poodles are very intelligent and do not shed. They tend to be hypoallergenic for most owners and are often a good choice for allergy sufferers. Keep in mind however, if you mix a Poodle with a dog that does shed the Poodle mix may shed, if it inherited the shedding trait from the non-Poodle parent. Many different Poodle mixes are emerging and it’s not just Poodle mixes, many different mixes are being bred.
Are Boxerdoodles good apartment dogs?
If you would like a companion poodle mix, and don’t spend long periods of time out the house, a Maltipoo, Airdoodle, Bassetoodle, Bernedoodle, Boxerdoodle or Poovanese is best. These poodle mixes are especially friendly and loyal and love nothing more than spending lots of time with their owners.
Do Boxerdoodles Cause Allergies?
It is wise to note that Boxerdoodles are vulnerable to allergies, so it is wise to be aware of the agents that are in the shampoos and environments. Dirty and unclean places are the first things that cause irritations, leading to eye inflammation and coughing. The best thing you can do to protect your dog from all these is to make sure you select him with hypoallergenic shampoo. An excellent hypoallergenic shampoo should also be made from natural chemicals and is soap-free. These types of shampoos are also excellent in giving your dog a natural fragrance.
How to prevent allergies
Groom your Boxerdoodle
A Boxerdoodle is derived from a Boxer and a Poodle. This hybrid is generally loyal to its owner. These dogs are apt to be somewhat protective, but they are not known for excessive barking. They tend to be obedient and not difficult to train. They are typically gentle enough to be present in homes with children. Boxerdoodles are usually of medium build – they generally stand between 10 and 25 inches tall and weigh between 20 and 60 pounds. The average life expectancy for this hybrid is between 10and 14 years. A Boxerdoodle is likely to have thick, curly hair, and this hybrid requires moderate grooming. These dogs come in a wide range of colors, including white, golden, brown, black, and brindle.
Beyond exercise, Boxerdoodle owners need to pay very close attention to their dog’s ears and eyes, cleaning and checking them both at least weekly. Due to the dog’s exercise demands, you’ll also want to schedule regular nail clippings–ask your vet for help and guidance if you’re unsure about the best way to do this. After any extended outdoors sessions, it’s also advisable to check the mixed breed’s paw pads for any potential signs of damage.
Designate Dog-Free Zones
The curly coat of the Boxerdoodle requires brushing every couple of days to prevent it from becoming tangled, particularly on the abdomen and under the armpits and groin. They should be bathed every couple of months and many owners will choose to have their coat trimmed at the same time.
