Do Weimardoodles shed?
Although a Weimardoodle is a mix between a poodle and a Weimaraner (a breed that sheds a lot), Weimardoodle do shed. However, they don’t shed nearly as much as purebred Weimaraner, and compared to other dog breeds, they don’t shed as much.
Because there are many types of Weimardoodles (f1 Weimardoodles, f1b Weimardoodles, f2 Weimardoodles, etc.), your dog will shed according to the type of doodle you own. More specifically, it depends on the percentage of poodle vs. Weimaraner in your dog. If your dog is more poodle, it won’t shed as much as if it was a higher percentage of Weimaraner.
Weimardoodles come in 2 different coat types: straight, or curly. A straight coat Weimardoodle has very long, delicate hair. When each parent contributes a curl gene, the Weimardoodle puppy ends up with a curly coat. Although this type of coat can be harder to brush, dogs with this coat are the least likely to shed.
Are Weimardoodles hypoallergenic?
Truth be told, no breed is ever truly 100% hypoallergenic. All dogs have fur that can shed, making it a potential issue for people who have allergies. Despite being completely hypoallergenic, Weimardoodles are an allergy-friendly dog breed.
This is due to the incorporation of poodles into the breed mix. Pet dander, saliva, and urine are the three elements that produce allergic reactions. Luckily, poodles have only a single coat with low dander, and their fur is non-shedding. Therefore, if your Weimardoodles is more poodle than Weimarener, your pet will be more allergy-friendly. In other words, a f1b Weimardoodle will be more allergy friendly than a f1 Weimardoodle.
Additionally, the degree of a Weimardoodle pup’s allergy friendliness is based on its type. In other words, a F1b Weimardoodle will be more allergy friendly than a f1 Weimardoodle.
How big do Weimardoodles get?
When it comes to Weimardoodle size, there are generally two sizes: miniature Weimardoodles and standard Weimardoodle.
Mini Weimardoodles are the most common size, and they generally weigh about 30-50 pounds. Some will have the stockier body of the Weimarener, while others may have a thinner body that resembles a poodle.
Standard Weimardoodles can be anywhere from 45-70 pounds when they’re full grown Weimardoodles. They measure in at around 20-27 inches regardless of their gender. Because this is the biggest type of Weimardoodle, these dogs require more space to run around and play.
How much does a Weimardoodle cost?
Pricing for Weimardoodles depends on a number of factors, although a general price tag will fall between $350-$950. There are also a number of other factors that can affect their price, such as:
Color: Weimardoodles can have different colored furs. In addition to the typical brown Weimardoodle, you can find professionals who specialize in breeding white Weimardoodles or even black Weimardoodles. Typically, the more “exotic” the color, the more expensive the Weimardoodle may be.
Coat: Breeders charge different prices based on the coat. Essentially, the more “poodle” within the dog’s genetics, the more allergy-friendly the dog is. This can sometimes result in a higher price tag.
Location & Demand: Prices can fluctuate based on where you live, along with the level of demand for the Weimardoodle based on the area. Bigger metropolitan cities such as San Francisco or New York will often have higher price tags because both of these places tend to have a higher cost of living, along with a greater need for allergy-friendly dogs.
Reputation of the Breeder: When it comes to purchasing a Weimardoodle from a breeder, you certainly want to do your research so that you purchase from a reputable, established breeder. While it may be cheaper to buy your doodle from an at-home breeder or from Craigslist, a good breeder can mean a world of difference. If you want a healthy, long-living dog, then it can certainly be worth spending the extra money on a reliable breeder who has done their due diligence in producing healthy pups. Keep in mind that you can also find Weimardoodles in shelters and other rescue centers!
How long do Weimardoodles live?
In general, Weimardoodles will live between 10-13 years. However, there can still be outliers within these statistics. For example, smaller dogs usually live longer than larger dogs and because of this, a mini Weimardoodle will be expected to live longer than a bigger Weimardoodle. An increased lifespan can also be attributed to crossbreeding (crossbred dogs usually outlive their purebred counterparts) along with purchasing a dog from a reputable breeder.
What’s an Weimardoodle’s temperament?
Weimardoodles are loyal and loving. They’re smart and playful and make wonderful family dogs since they’re good around children.
When you think about an amazing dog, you probably imagine one that is loyal and caring. If you want a smart, friendly dog that’s great with children, then a Weimardoodle may be the perfect addition to your family.
