Finding Pets For Your Kids

About a year ago, I realized that my kids had never looked after pets. I wanted them to be able to really enjoy their life to the fullest, so I started looking for more opportunities for them to reach out to animals. It was amazing to see how much of a difference a pet or two made in their lives, and pretty soon, they seemed happier and more interested in the world around them. This blog is all about finding great pets for your kids and making sure that they stay healthy and happy. Check out this blog for more information.

All About Wheaten Terrier-Poodles

A dog is a wonderful addition to a family. The Whoodle is a cross between a Poodle and a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier. They are often also called Wheatendoodles, Sweatenpoos, or Wheatenpoos. This dog breed is perfect for families and active people. Before getting a Whoodle, you should learn more about the breed and how to take care of it.   

Getting to Know a Whoodle

The Wheaten Terrier-Poodle is known as a very active breed, so if you plan on adding one to your household, be sure you have plenty of space to play outside and inside. They are very friendly and generally are good around children and even strangers. 

You can find a Whoodle in red, black, brown, cream, and silver-gray colors. Their coats can be spotted or solid colored. And the upside to the Poodle part of the breed mix is this pup is hypoallergenic.

Since the Whoodle is a mixed breed, it comes in small and medium sizes and ranges from 20 to 45 pounds. So, be sure you have space inside your home for whatever size you choose. That being said, Whoodles do adapt fairly well to apartment living. 

Taking Care of a Whoodle

Every dog is different in what needs they have, so you should adapt your care routine to your specific Whoodle. However, there are general needs that the Wheaten Terrier-Poodle mix has. 

General Health

As with any other pet, dogs should be taken in for veterinary care, and Whoodles are no different. Some breeds experience health problems more than others. With your Whoodle, pay attention to health problems like eye infections and diseases, retinal atrophy, Addison's disease, and kidney issues.

Grooming

Poodles generally have curly fur, while Wheaten Terriers have long, silky coats. Whoodles have a mix of these coats and can be wavy or straight. Because their coats are usually long, you must brush and trim your pup's fur regularly. Whoodles do not shed much so without regular grooming, your dog can get really shaggy. 

Feeding

Dogs need a well-balanced diet including lots of nutritious food. Whoodles do well with dry food. Because Whoodles come in different sizes, you'll need to look for dry food that meets your dog's size. You must also be sure not to overfeed your pup. If you are unsure of what portion size to give or what brand to buy, ask your vet for recommendations. 

Exercising & Training

Whoodles are highly intelligent and respond well to positive reinforcement when in training. Starting early will be very beneficial to you and your dog. Whoodles prefer long walks and frequent playtime outside. Without regular exercise and without firm training, Whoodles can become destructive, especially if they get bored. 

Taking care of Whoodles takes work just like any other living being, but if you take the time to train, exercise, and love your Whoodle, it will be an amazing addition to your family. Research ahead of time what it takes to fully care for your Wheaten Terrier-Poodle. Vets are reliable resources should you have further questions.
