With a gentle and loyal personality, these designer dogs have an eagerness to please and entertain their owners. Playful and funny by nature, these dogs love to draw everyone’s attention and are often seen playing around. They love the company of their family members and are tolerant of kids and other household pets. The sweet-natured springerdoodles may even accept the presence of strangers when trained early in their life. Since they are mellow and calm by nature, they do not bark much.
Being a smart and easily trainable dog, the springerdoodle needs fewer repetitions of instructions to grasp the training that is given. Those who wish to see immediate results will enjoy training them. The owners will simply have to adopt a firm and consistent training method to shape their pet’s personality in a proper way. Adequate socialization, obedience, and off-leash training sessions are required to make the puppies learn the basic etiquettes required in a family pet.
Like other medium-sized dogs, an adult sproodle should be provided with one and a half to two and a half cups of dry kibble regularly. A nutritious diet with adequate amounts of protein, carbohydrate, fat, and micronutrients is needed for its growth.
