How long do oodles live for? 

The lifespan of Oodle dogs depends on various factors such as their size, health, and genetics.

Our experience has been that they do tend to have long lifespans and healthy lives due to the fact that they are from genetically diverse parentage. This means that many of the ailments which occur inevitably in purebred dogs and which arise as a result of continually breeding dogs with similar physical attributes, are (in our experience) less prevalent in these dogs. 

We live on a farm and really value the health of our animals. We want them to be able to jump, run, swim and play with us for extended period of time. These are some of the factors that have attracted us to breed these animals. We’ve certainly found them to be hardy and able to keep up with our active lifestyle.

Like all dogs, on average, smaller Oodle dogs like Miniature and Toy Poodles tend to live longer than larger Oodle dogs. We use miniature and toy poodles in our lines as we breed “down” in size; – none of our studs are larger standard sized poodles.

It’s important to remember that each dog is an individual and may have different health and lifestyle factors that can impact their lifespan. 

Proper nutrition, regular exercise, and routine veterinary care can help keep your Oodle dog healthy and potentially prolong their lifespan.

In summary and, in our experience,  generally, Oodle dogs can live anywhere from 13 to 18 years, with some living longer. If you’re considering getting an Oodle dog, it’s important to do your research and talk to a veterinarian or breeder about potential health issues and how to provide the best care for your dog.
