Hybrid Dogs

Sproodle Overview

This dog breed is better known as a hybrid which is a cross between the English Springer Spaniel and a Poodle. Typically, they inherit the best from each breed and result in a breed that's hypoallergenic.

They’re considered to be a medium-sized dog, but their size does also depend on the size of their parents. Normally a Sproodle weighs around 5-70 pounds and measures in height around 18-22 inches from the ground to shoulder.

They're great with children and other pets if introduced correctly from an early age.  They make great companions and are relatively low maintenance. They do require plenty of exercises, so would suit an owner that equally loves to walk and spend their time in the outdoors.

This dog breed varies in colour as it depends on the colourings of their parents. Normally, this dog breed will not have a solid coat colour.

History & Origin

The Sproodle originated back in the 1980s when the demand started for a more intelligent and low-shedding dog breed. Since then, there has been an explosion of many cross-breeds that fit into that category and have become increasingly popular. The Sproodle was bred to be loving, well-balanced and loyal and that's why they still remain to be a firm favourite amongst UK households.

Sproodle Temperament

The Sproodle has a delightful temperament. Their intellect serves them well as they love to please their loved ones and really enjoy learning new tricks. They're very calm, fun, loving and well-balanced, making them a great dog breed for families with young children. This wonderful dog breed loves the great outdoors and spending time chilling with their loved ones. 

Sproodle Training

The Sproodle is highly intelligent and therefore able to learn very quickly. They require continuous training to ensure they're mentally stimulated and happy. Obedience training is a must for the Sproodle as well as agility training. 


The Sproodle is low-shedding but does require regular grooming to help keep their coat in good condition. Their coats need brushing every other day to help keep that glossy appearance and to prevent tangles and their fur becoming matted. They also need their teeth brushing every day and their paws and ears checked on a regular basis. 


The Sproodle is prone to suffer with a few hereditary health issues which affect both their parent breeds. Responsible breeding can help prevent certain health conditions. The health conditions they can suffer from are as follows:

  • Autoimmune diseases 
  • Bloat 
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Cushing disease 
  • Epilepsy 
  • Ear disorders
  • Addisons disease 

Sproodle Exercise Needs

The Sproodle is a high energy dog breed and therefore requires plenty of daily exercise with as much time off the lead as possible. Because of their intellect, they require plenty of mental stimulation also. Mental stimulation can be provided by learning them new tricks, attending dog training sessions and stimulating dog toys for them to play with in your absence. If your Sproodle is not given enough exercise and mental stimulation they are prone to becoming bored and displaying destructive behaviours. 

Children and other pets

The Sproodle is great with other pets and children provided they are trained correctly from a young age. The Sproodle loves to play and therefore would suit a family with young children. Playtime must always be supervised.
