The doodles n things
 
I am curious to know how everyone feels about designer dogs, are Labradoodles just mutts in your opinions?

Yes, designer dogs are mixed breed dogs. As long as there is a market for them, they'll continue to be produced.

Yup! And high priced mutts at that!

My opinion is they are mutts. I don't necessarily say that in a bad way. I have a friend that purchased a Goldendoodle that I pick on for having a "doodle" but at the end of the day she is a good dog. Although, He paid entirely too much for her in my opinion.

Yes, over-priced mixes.

I cant for the life of me understand why a Pomsky even exists.

I like the "doodles". I have a springer doodle in one of the obedience classes and he is the sweetest dog and cute too.

My brother has a Goldendoodle. Cost a small fortune but no shedding, no allergy concerns for his kids and one of the calmest, sweetest dogs I have ever been around.

Thing is, it's a total crapshoot whether or not they'll shed a lot or a little. It's one of the big "selling points" but it's not a given.

I have met a few doodles that grew on me, but I will never get on board with the practice of breeding mutts and charging big bucks for it.
