Poodle mixes with other dog breeds are called Doodles. The Poodle is the most popular hypoallergenic dog breed – and one of the most intelligent. The small to medium sized non-shedding dog breed is frequently mixed with other dog breeds – mostly to enhance its qualities.

Moreover, doodle dogs are sometimes hypoallergenic, depending on their genetic composition. Other Poodle mixes, such as the Shih Tzu Poodle mix and Maltese Poodle mix are hypoallergenic. This is because both parent dog breeds don’t shed.
Poodle mixes that closely resemble their Poodle parent are more likely to be hypoallergenic. Labradoodles are one of the most known Poodle mixes. This is mostly because a Labradoodle is a mix between a Poodle and the most popular dog breed, the Labrador retriever.
Labradoodles are also the oldest of the Poodle mix dogs. Goldendoodles (Golden retriever and Poodle mix) and Bernedoodles (Bernese Mountain Dog Poodle mix) are also popular Poodle cross dogs, especially with people who have pet allergies.
