The English Boodle, created by crossing the English Bulldog and the Poodle, is a small to medium-sized designer dog exhibiting a combination of the typical characteristics found in its parent breeds. Being smart like the Poodle and friendly as the English Bulldog, it has become one of the most popular family pets. The bulldog-poodle mix is characterized by a large head, dull facial features, and long floppy ears.

Considered one of the gentlest, friendliest, and most social dogs, the boodles are compatible with kids as well as other household pets. Because of their family-oriented nature, they not only enjoy the company of their owners but also exhibit equally good behavior towards other members of the family. Although they usually remain calm and quiet, prolonged loneliness and boredom may induce destructive behavior, accompanied by incessant barking. Since they are naturally attentive, they make good watchdogs alerting their families of an impending danger.



Unlike a few other breeds, the boodle dog has a variable need, as far as its activity level is concerned. In general, this dog is suitable for apartment life, and it loves spending time indoors as much as playing outdoors. Securely leashed walks as well as off-lead playing sessions on a regular basis will keep your dog fit and happy.


Regular gentle brushing is recommended to keep your pet’s coat shiny and healthy. Occasional clipping or trimming is also required, but consulting a professional groomer is recommended in this regard. Bathing with a gentle shampoo should be done once in a while to maintain its soft and silky curls as well as to keep away skin infections.

Health Problems

Although it is not known to suffer from any severe genetic problems, your boodle may have some other health concerns including PRA, epilepsy, skin infections, and heart diseases. If you see any abnormal or uncharacteristic behavior in your pet, you should call the vet immediately.


First-time owners will find it difficult to train this dog since it may show occasional stubbornness that can only be dealt with firm, fair, patient, and consistent training methods. Since it does not respond to heavy-handed training methods, make sure you avoid them. The boodle puppies should be taught to obey basic instructions like lie down, sit, and stay. Normal house training including crate and socialization training should be given at a young age to make it more gentle, affectionate, and family-oriented.


Food sources rich in protein, carbohydrates, and fats should be given to the young dogs for their growth. You can give your pet quality dry dog food regularly in amounts ranging from one and a half to two and a half cups.

Interesting Facts

  • These dogs are not bothered by hot or cold temperatures and can survive in every climate.
  • The adult boodles do not have the same abundance of energy as seen in the puppies.
