Designer dogs gained popularity due to their celebrity owners. But, how do designer dogs stack up to pure bred dogs? Learn designer dog breed facts to quickly educate yourself.
Do you know your designer dogs? What is a designer dog, anyway? How are they bred and how much do they cost? We’re talking about Goldendoodles (Golden Retreiver + Poodles), Cavachons (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel + Bichon Frise), and Puggles (Pugs + Beagles), just to name a few of the high-end mixed breeds you can find in your local park or in the arms of celebrities like Ellen Degeneres and Miley Cyrus, both of whom own Malitpoos (a mixture of a Maltese and a Poodle.)
Well, wonder no more! PetCareRx has designer dog breeds completely covered in our new infographic, which explains everything from the first known case of a designer breed (a Labradoodle) to the economics involved in breeding those puppies.
For instance, did you know many designer dogs live longer than their purebred ancestors? While costing 25-50% more? Or that the American Kennel Club recognizes three times as many designer breeds as purebreds? You will once you read our infographic! Enough with the words.
With the sudden demand for designed dog breeds, more and more types are being concocted. Cocapoodle, Labradoodle and Poogle are just some of the half-poodle designed dogs. Is intentional crossbreeding the same as intentional purebreeding? Or are these dogs more of a cocktail mixture made to fit lifestyle trends? Here are the facts about their health, price and legitimacy in the canine world.
