Designer “ or Mixed Breed dogs

Designer dogs are the up and coming back rage among Hollywood and dog lovers alike.  Dogs just like the puggle (pug + beagle), the cockapoo aka cockerpoo or spoodle(cocker-spaniel + poodle), the labradoodle (Labrador gun dog + poodle), the peekapoo (pekingnese + poodle) and therefore the Schnoodle (Schnauzer + Poodle) are growing ever a lot of in style these days than ever before.  Why are these “mutts” thus massive right now?

1. Cute Names – Designer dogs have cute names that people love and make the appearance of a new breed of dog that very few have heard of.  For example: the puggle.

2. Great for those with allergies – Unlike some purebred dogs, designer dogs are often bred to reduce the amount of allergens they produce by not having an undercoat.  

3. Sheds less – Some designer dogs are bred to shed less than other dogs.

4. Genetic advantage - Believed to be less prone to inbreeding, the 

designer dog is thought to have better temperaments and also thought to be smarter and more trainable than their purebred counter parts.

Controversy surrounding these dogs have made purebred dog owners enraged.  It’s bad for there business and the qualities listed above only hold true in specific cases.  The designer dog fad has also had its fallbacks.

1. Bad breeding – bad breeding leads to unwanted dogs.  Many people want to produce a designer dog without doing back-ground checks and without the skills needed to do so.

2. Bad owners – Some believe that just because they bought a designer dog means that they don’t need to train, care for or love their pet as much.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  Designer dogs need just as much care and attention as all other dogs do, if not more.

3. More expensive – the price for these dogs have sky-rocketed sometimes hit the $1,000 mark.  Sometimes its better just to go to the humane society or animal shelter and find a perfectly fine dog.  The shots and care for these dogs can make their prices higher as well.

Don’t get me wrong, these are wonderful pets.  However, they need wonderful owners as well.
Love and care and correct aid and grooming are essential for a contented life-long companion.  If you'd wish to keep your prices and considerations down once getting a designer dog I recommend that you simply check its breeding history and do temperament tests yet as get them screened surely common genetic disorders like hip-dysplasia and retinal atrophy. correct preparation and accountable habits result in an excellent dog.
