There are well over 40 different types of poodle mixes, so I am sure that you have at least heard of one of them. But of those, 10 breeds are the most popular of the poodle mixes, and are probably the poodle mixes you have heard about most often. But just in case you haven’t heard them, here they are—not in any particular order.


Labradoodle

These dogs are a mix between a Labrador retriever and a poodle. Labradoodles are known for being intelligent, calm and affectionate. The nice thing about mixing this breed is that the hip problems that Labradors are known for become less common and it also means they are more likely to live 12 to 14 years.

Goldendoodle

Instead of mixing a Labrador retriever and a poodle, goldendoodles are a mix of a golden retriever and a poodle. These dogs are often thought to look like teddy bears because of their really tight, curly hair. Goldendoodles are known for being super friendly, happy and smart. If you want to know more in-depth about these cute pups, check out our article on Goldendoodles.

Cockapoo

Cockapoos are a mix between a cocker spaniel and a poodle. These poodle mixes are known for their crazy, high energy, perfect to pair with younger children. They are also one of the smaller poodle mixes, which makes them an easier breed to live with no matter your house size.

Bernedoodle

These cute pups are a mix of Bernese Mountain dogs and poodles. Bernedoodles are pretty big dogs, ranging from 50 to 100 pounds; however, these pups are best known for their affectionate and playful manner.

Yorkipoo

Yorkipoo pups are slightly different from the above-mentioned poodle mixes. Since Yorkshire terriers are already a smaller dog, their breed has been mixed with a toy or miniature poodle. These pups are friendly, playful and smart. However, they are also best for a more mature household.

Sheepadoodle

For those interested in a bigger-sized poodle mix, the English sheepdog mixed with a poodle is an excellent choice. These pups are great for families because of their love for children and attention from humans.

Pomapoo

This poodle mix comes from breeding another smaller dog, a Pomeranian, with a toy poodle. Their Pomeranian breeding makes them intelligent and affectionate small dogs. The Pomapoo’s max weight is 25 pounds, making them perfect for smaller homes or apartments.

Maltipoo

This breed is a Maltese mixed with a poodle. If you are looking for a dog that will retain their puppy look and attitude, then these are the pups for you. However, you don’t have to worry about this breed being too rough because they are also known to be very gentle dogs.

Schnoodle

Schnoodles are a mix between a schnauzer and a poodle. Their small size can be a little deceiving when it comes to their energy. These pups love to run and play and are pretty speedy as well. You’ll want to make sure they have plenty of room to play.

Aussiedoodle

Lastly, the Aussiedoodle is a mix between an Australian shepherd and, of course, a poodle. These are also a bigger breed, weighing up to 100 pounds. But the Aussiedoodle is a very loyal, smart and playful pup.

Why Are Poodle Mixes So Popular?

This is probably something you may be very curious about because a few years ago, mixed breeds were considered to be mutts and undesirable. They are so popular now that they can cost upwards of $1,000 to $2,000. Poodle mixes are popular because they are known for being somewhat hypoallergenic and are less likely to have the diseases or health problems that are associated with each breed separately. As a mixed breed they have very little shedding, better temperament and are smarter than their parent breeds. There are many different sizes to choose from, and of course, they are super cute.

What Poodle Mixes Are Hypoallergenic?

Poodle mixes are low-shedding dogs because of the poodle parent. An added benefit of low shedding is that these pups are often hypoallergenic. Typically, the most likely and common reason for someone being allergic to a dog is because of the shedding that comes from a dog’s undercoat or dandruff. Because poodles don’t have an undercoat, they can’t shed it. So, when breeding a poodle with another dog, the lack of an undercoat is dominant, and the poodle mix usually sheds less and has no undercoat. This doesn’t mean that no one will be allergic to them, but it is a lot harder to have an allergic reaction to poodle mixes.
