The Ultimate Guide to Buying a Whoodle
Are you planning to become a dog parent for the first time? Maybe you’re wondering which breed to adopt. While all dogs have unique personalities, a Whoodle is a great pick. Whoodles are a mixed breed – they’re a cross between a Wheaten Terrier and Poodle dog.
Whoodles are playful, active, and friendly dogs, also known as Wheatendoodle, Wheatenpoo, Sweatenpoo, and Sweatendoodle. But just like any other pet, it’s important to learn about the breed before bringing home a Whoodle. This way, you can determine if your family and home environment is a good fit for a Whoodle to thrive in.
So, whether you love Whoodles or are a first-time dog parent, this expert guide will help you learn everything you need to know when buying a Whoodle.
The Whoodle Breed: Everything You Need to Know
Since Whoodles are a mix-breed, the puppies inherit some of the best traits from both breeds. This super cute canine will be a perfect addition to your family because of its friendly and smart nature.
However, you have to remember that a Whoodle can also be extremely active and headstrong at times. So, you’ll have to establish some rules and show that you are the leader of the pack as soon as you bring the pup home. With that disclaimer out of the way, let us learn about Whoodle and what you can expect.
History of Whoodles
The Whoodle breed appeared around the mid-1900s, making it a relatively newer addition to the canine kingdom. The idea was to create a dog breed with the soft coat of a Wheaten Terrier and the natural intelligence of a Poodle.
You can trace Poodles’ history back to France, which is France’s favorite canine. On the other hand, the Wheaten Terrier has been bred since the 1700s in Ireland, with its primary purpose being that of a herding dog.
Dog parents with a Whoodle will often praise the breed for being full of energy, enthusiastic, playful, and smarter than any other canine. You’ll find that Whoodles love toys and are up for a play session nearly all the time. This breed craves company and wants to be in a social environment to interact with people.
Whoodles love a long walk, whether you’re taking them to a park, the woods, or the beach. When you’re out for a stroll, you’ll find that your Whoodle is inquisitive. It’s important that you train your Whoodle to socialize and mix with people from an early age.
This canine is a confident breed and has strong leadership qualities. But to prevent it from undermining your authority, you have to reinforce the idea that you’re the boss at home. Training a Whoodle requires a lot of patience as they can come across acting as if they know better. A Whoodle does not like being yelled at, so you should train them with encouragement and kindness. This is key to establishing a healthy friendship with your canine.
Size of Standard and Mini Whoodles
Despite being a small breed, you can find Whoodles in a variety of sizes. If the Poodle parent is bigger, then you get a bigger Whoodle as well. Therefore, you will find the various types of Whoodle, which include:
- The standard Whoodle – standing at approximately 21 inches tall and weighs between 45 and 55 pounds
- The mini Whoodle – is about 18 inches tall and weighs around 35 to 40 pounds
Other breeds include Toy Whoodle, Teddy Bear Whoodle, etc. An average height of both male and female Whoodle can reach up to 21 inches tall, whereas the weight may range between 20 and 60 pounds.
Health of Whoodles
Although healthy in general, Whoodles may suffer from some health conditions during their life. The breed inherits some of the health issues from both parent breeds. Some of the common health issues reported in the Whoodle breed are:
- Addison’s disease
- Kidney infections
- Eye diseases
- Retinal atrophy
One of the most severe issues that a Whoodle may suffer from is epilepsy, which is due to abnormal electrical activity in your canine’s brain. This condition causes the dog to experience seizure episodes manifesting as loss of consciousness and convulsions. However, if your dog is epileptic, you can diagnose it between the age of 1 and 5. That said, there are medications that can control the seizures and give your dog a good quality of life.
You just have to remember that, like any other breed, you must take really good care of your Whoodle and take them for veterinary checkups regularly.
Speaking of health and preventing illnesses in your Whoodle, you must be proactive in taking care of your canine. Keeping up with the general grooming and regular checkups with a local vet will ensure that your dog stays in good health. This practice will also help detect any signs or symptoms of a health issue in an early stage.
Registering your Whoodle with a local veterinary care service will allow a vet to develop a healthcare plan to ensure that your canine member of the family always stays in good health.
You must take your Whoodle out for regular walks as the breed is quite energetic and needs a considerable amount of exercise to burn that energy off. You must try to aim for a minimum one-mile walk on a daily basis. The more you can fit in, the better, but 1 hour is the bare minimum. A Whoodle is a naturally playful breed, so you can help them stay active with indoor playtime.
Another aspect of care required for Whoodle is regular grooming. This is important because both parent breeds, soft-coated wheaten terrier and poodle, are high maintenance dogs. Therefore, you should brush your Whoodle’s silky coat daily. A quick piece of advice here is to make it a habit to get your Whoodle’s fur trimmed every two to three months.
Another thing to keep in check is regular nail trimming. It would be a wise investment to buy appropriate grooming accessories to carry out the basic grooming tasks at home. If you have any health or care concerns about your Whoodle, it is best to consult your vet.
A Whoodle will eat normal dog food. However, you must formulate a diet suitable for a medium-sized dog breed.
If you are a first-time breeder or a seasoned dog parent buying a Whoodle for the first time, it would be best to seek the advice of a veterinarian. Food portions can vary based on your Whoodle’s weight, health condition, and energy. An expert veterinarian facility will be able to recommend the right portion of food you must feed your Whoodle every day.
Coat Color & Grooming
As mentioned earlier in this guide, Whoodles inherit the lush coat of their parent breed of soft-coated wheaten terrier. Therefore, you will find the coat to be silky on the touch. Speaking of the color of the coat, you can find a Whoodle with black, brown, cream, red, and silver-grey coats. Rarely, but you may also come across a Whoodle with a spotted coat.
While whoodles have a medium-length coat, their silky fur requires that you brush them daily.
Do you or a family member suffer from allergies? In that case, Whoodle is a perfect dog for your family as the dog’s coat is hypoallergenic.
Ideally, a Whoodle would prefer to live in colder weather. If you live in a hotter climate, you must take precautionary steps when taking your Whoodle for a walk. This will reduce any risks of heat exhaustion.
Whoodle with other Pets
Whoodle is a social breed and usually lives in harmony with other pets. Nevertheless, you must train your Whoodle to undergo appropriate socializing training from a young age to create a habit of socializing with other pets.
Whoodle with Children
A Whoodle is an active and playful canine and makes a good companion for your young ones. However, it would be best if you taught your children how to interact with a Whoodle responsibly. This is important because Whoodle is a headstrong breed and will not like provocation or being mishandled.
You must always supervise play sessions between a Whoodle and your kids, especially during the initial months of buying a Whoodle.
Pros and Cons of Buying a Whoodle

Things to Consider when Buying a Whoodle or Mini Whoodle
Can your wallet handle a Whoodle?
A Whoodle is a high-maintenance breed and requires a lot of attention and time. You may need to splash the cash to get the right dog food, buy toys, and book emergency vet appointments. So before you decide to buy a Whoodle, ask yourself if your wallet is ready to own one.
Regular vet visits are a part of it.
