If you’re considering bringing one into your home or just want to know more about this unique breed, this guide has all the information you need. From the cost of Ttoodle puppies to training tips, nutrition requirements, and more, we’ll be introducing you to the wonderful world of Ttoodles.

How would you describe the temperament of Ttoodle Dog?

The Ttoodle has a gentle nature, is affectionate toward other family members, and loves to play with children. They tend to be wary of strangers, so they make great guard dogs but will be friendly with plenty of early socialization. They are extremely intelligent and have plenty of energy, which is both a blessing and a curse since they require constant supervision and attention, or they can become destructive or misbehave. They will also use their considerable intelligence to set up elaborate schemes to get what they want.

How easy are Ttoodle Dog to train?

Your Ttoodle is extremely intelligent and capable of completing complex tasks. Its poodle parent is behind only the Border Collie in intelligence, and you can expect the same from your Ttoodle. We recommend holding short training sessions at the same time each day to get your dog into a routine, which will help it stay focused and to learn quicker. Consistency is key, so you don’t want to miss any days, and you will also need to be patient because it can take even the smartest dogs several weeks to learn a  new trick, and setbacks are a part of the training process.

Diet and Nutrition

The Ttoodle is a high-energy dog that requires plenty of high-quality protein to stay active and healthy. Brands with real meat like chicken or turkey listed first are better than those with a meat byproduct or corn ingredient. We also recommend looking for omega fats listed in the ingredients to help improve skin and coat. Omega fats can also help with brain and eye development. Probiotics and prebiotics can help build important gut bacteria that can help balance the sensitive digestive system.

How active are Ttoodle Dog?

Your Ttoodle is an active dog that will require plenty of exercise to stay healthy and happy.  It will see plenty of activity chasing after family members all day, but we recommend setting aside at least 40 minutes per day to play with your pet. Games that cause your dog to run are the best because they will help your dog burn off energy faster. It will also enjoy games of tug of war if you have the strength.

Ttoodle Dog Grooming

The good news is that your Ttoodle is hypoallergenic, so it shouldn’t trigger allergies in sensitive people. The bad news is that it still sheds quite a bit, so you will need to brush it frequently to keep the fur off your furniture and to keep the dog looking its best. We recommend brushing every three or four days, more during the fall and spring shedding seasons. We also recommend manually brushing your dog’s teeth with a pet-safe toothpaste to help slow the progression of dental disease, and if you can hear the nails clicking on the floor, it’s time to get them trimmed.

Related Questions

Does This Breed Get Along with Other Pets?

Yes. The Ttoodle tends to get bossy with other pets, but they won’t be aggressive or fight. Early socialization can curb authoritarian behavior, but it’s instinctive in the Tibetan Terrier like the herding instinct is in some other breeds, so it might be something your pet continues to do throughout life. However, once everyone gets used to each other, the Ttoodle can be quite playful with other dogs and even cats.

Are These Dogs Good for Families?

Yes. As we mentioned earlier, these dogs are extremely friendly and love to be around family members. Adults might find them a little underfoot when they are trying to prepare a meal or clean the house, but they love to play and can keep children entertained for several hours. It’s wary of strangers, so it will always warn you when someone is approaching the house, but they will be friendly once the stranger is in the home if you socialize it with strangers as a puppy.

What’s the Price of Ttoodle Puppies?

We recommend setting aside between $600 and $1,500 for your Ttoodle. The price will usually be on the lower side, but demand for one of the parents can put you on the waiting list as both the Tibetan Terrier and the Poodle are quite popular breeds. If you want to breed the dog, you often need to pay more, and if the breeder provides vaccination shots and spays or neuters the dog before you can purchase it, the dog will be more expensive.

You may also need to pay to get the dog spayed or neutered, and it will require several vet visits the first few years. Food, treats, toys, and flea medication will be an ongoing expense.

Final Thoughts

The Ttoodle is an excellent example of designer dogs done right. By balancing the relative infirmities of two popular breeds, a more robustly healthy cross is produced — and one that is by all accounts an excellent pet. To have come such a long way from two disparate homelands says much of the Ttoodle’s adaptability.

Do you think the Ttoodle may be the right pet for your home? If so, you’ll likely need to search out a reputable breeder. Since the Ttoodle is such a recent breed, it’s unlikely that you’ll find any in shelters or adoption programs.
