History of Mini Irishdoodle's Puppies for Sale

Mini Irishdoodles were bred to blend the wonderfully happy-go-lucky demeanor of the Irish Setter and the intelligent, hypoallergenic qualities of the Poodle. They are often described as looking like teddy bears, making them even more lovable. We first got the Mini Irishdoodle around the same time as many other designer dog breeds in the late 1990s or early 2000s. Poodle mixes are extremely popular because of the Poodle's intelligence and hypoallergenic qualities. Like most mixed breeds, the Mini Irishdoodle is much healthier than its purebred parents. 

Mini Irishdoodles are known to make excellent therapy dogs for people living with psychiatric disorders like PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

Mini Irishdoodles are very much a people pleaser and will do just about anything to make you happy. They are gentle and patient, making them a wonderful family companion. Their Poodle parent is known to be the second most intelligent dog in the entire world, so it is no surprise that Mini Irishdoodles can master commands easily.  

It is important to start training your Mini Irishdoodle as soon as you bring them home. Begin with obedience training and teaching basic commands like "sit," "stay," and "come." Once they grasp basic commands, you can begin teaching more complex commands. Use positive reinforcement to build the bond between you and your pup, as this breed can be sensitive to harsh tones. Using harsh tones can break the bond between you and your pup and ultimately hinder the training process. Treats and verbal praise are the way to go. Be aware of how many treats you give during the training process to prevent obesity or other weight-related issues. 

We recommend crate training to assist with house training and to provide your Goldendoodle with a safe and calming environment while you are away. Dogs typically do not want to get their environment dirty, so they avoid going to the bathroom in their crate. When they alert you that they need to go to the bathroom, immediately let them outside and give them a treat or verbal praise. Mini Irishdoodles are very smart so that they will catch on quickly. 

Routines are everything when it comes to training, and consistency is key. It might seem like a difficult task to teach your dog everything it needs to know, but it will come easier than you think. Stay patient and be persistent, and you will surely be impressed with the results.

This breed also does well with other dogs in the household. There is little to no aggression with Mini Irishdoodles, and they do not have much of a prey drive. This means they will also do well with feline friends in the household, and you will not have to worry about frequent chasing or hunting.  

These dogs thrive in active households, so they do so well with families. However, early training and socialization are just as important with this breed as with other dogs, so be sure to introduce them to various people at a young age for long-term success. Mini Irishdoodles are prone to separation anxiety, so they make a great option for those working from home or those with large families that are constantly in and out. Anxiety can lead to destructive behaviors, so it is important to try and alleviate it if possible. Crate training also helps to alleviate any separation anxiety by providing them with a safe space while you are out. 

Luckily, you will not have to worry about barking with this breed, which is convenient if you live near neighbors. Due to their size, they can certainly call a city apartment home. However, it might be easier to enjoy playtime if you have easy access to a yard. 

Grooming an Mini Irishdoodle Dog for sale

Mini Irishdoodles are a favorite because of their low shedding. However, low shedding means that dead hair tends to get trapped more easily, resulting in mats and tangles if not brushed frequently. The genes from the Poodle make them hypoallergenic, making them a great option for those with allergies. 

Many people decide to give their Mini Irishdoodle a haircut, making grooming a bit less maintenance. The frequency of brushing depends on the length of their coat. Clipped fur only needs to be brushed around two to three times a week, while longer fur needs daily. Never brush dry fur, and always mist with a leave-in conditioner or water before brushing. We recommend using a slicker brush and a pin brush. The slicker brush helps remove the fur from the coat and undercoat, while the pin brush gives a polished look at the end of the grooming routine. Removing mats or tangles can be painful, but using a detangler or conditioner will simplify this process. 

You will need to bathe your Mini Irishdoodle once every one to three months. This is often dependent on lifestyle. If you take frequent hikes with your pup, you will likely need to bathe more frequently. When bathing, make sure to use a high-quality dog shampoo and conditioner. Bathing too frequently can strip the natural oils away from the skin and fur and leave behind irritation and dryness, so try to hold off between washes. 

If you do decide to give your Mini Irishdoodle a haircut, you can either do it yourself or take them to a professional groomer. Regularly check your dog's eyes to see if any hair needs to be clipped that is blocking vision. This depends on your comfort level and your dog's comfort level. 

Apart from brushing, check their ears while grooming to notice any signs of debris or infection. Remove debris if you notice it, as this can easily lead to infection. Clip their nails around once a month or whenever you start to hear them clacking on hard surfaces. We recommend brushing their teeth daily, or at least a couple of times a week. If your Mini Irishdoodle does not like having their teeth brushed, be sure to give them dental chews or other treats aimed at dental hygiene. Smaller dogs are prone to tooth decay and dental disease, so staying on top of dental hygiene is important. 

Exercising an Mini Irishdoodle Dog to Buy

Mini Irishdoodles are a hybrid of two relatively active breeds, so it is no surprise that they have lots of energy and need a fair amount of exercise. They will love to play fetch or practice agility training. We recommend around 60 minutes per day of exercise. Split this up into walks, playtime, and mental stimulation throughout the day. 

Mini Irishdoodle puppies will need to spend less time and do less strenuous exercise than when they are an adult. Be careful exercising puppies, as joint or bone damage can easily happen. A good rule of thumb is about five minutes of daily exercise per month of age. This means a six-month-old Mini Irishdoodle can handle around 30 minutes of exercise throughout the day. 

This breed loves swimming, hiking, and playing sports with its owners. Any form of exercise will be well-loved if you are doing it together. It is important to mix up the kinds of exercise you are doing with your Mini Irishdoodle to prevent them from getting bored. Incorporating obedience and agility work into exercise is an excellent way to get out some energy and stimulate your dog mentally. Intelligent dogs are more prone to boredom, so keeping them engaged during playtime is necessary. 

Nutrition for an Mini Irishdoodle Dog to Purchase

Deciding on proper nutrition for any animal is an important task. When looking for food for your Mini Irishdoodle, we recommend choosing high-quality dry dog food designed for smaller breeds. It is important to steer clear of any preservatives, additives, or synthetic supplements, as these can irritate sensitive stomachs. Instead, opt for whole meats, animal-based fats, and whole grains and veggies. Also, make sure to include healthy fatty acids, like Omega-3. These will promote healthy skin and hair. 

The number of calories necessary for your Mini Irishdoodle depends on its size, age, and activity level. You will generally want food with at least 18% protein for the typical Mini Irishdoodle and at least 22% for puppies and pregnant mothers. Active puppies need more calories for development than adults. 

We recommend giving a dry kibble diet to help with dental hygiene. If you opt for homemade food or wet food, make sure to incorporate dry kibble in some capacity, as this is important for their teeth and gums. Chewing on a dry kibble helps break down tartar buildup on the teeth. Smaller dogs are especially prone to dental disease, so this is so important. 

A common issue with many dogs is bloat, which happens when they eat too much too fast. This can be life-threatening, so we recommend spreading the daily caloric intake into multiple meals rather than just one big meal. You can also purchase a food bowl that is designed to slow eating. 

Before switching food brands or starting your Mini Irishdoodle on a new diet, always talk to your veterinarian.
