Introduction

Small, clever and eager to please, the Woodle is an excellent designer dog choice for people who are looking for a true companion. This hybrid is the result when the Welsh Terrier is cross-bred with the Poodle. The genes of these two parent breeds produce a warm and gentle dog that has plenty of love to give. Woodles enjoy spending time and interacting with their families through bonding moments or playtime. They are also lighthearted and love to try new things and play games, both indoors and outside. Because they are docile in nature, Woodles are suitable for various environments, including apartments, senior homes or a house with a yard.

Because of their Poodle DNA, Woodles inherit their parent breed’s coat. While it looks adorable, the downside to this coat is that it grows quickly, which is why Woodles need to undergo regular grooming. However, the cost of doggy spas and grooming centers can add up and hurt your pockets when utilized frequently. One way to meet your dog’s grooming needs without breaking the bank is by doing it yourself. Aside from the money that you will save along the way, grooming your dog is also an excellent way to spend time together. In addition, your dog will appreciate your love and care, which can lead to a stronger bond and trust between the two of you. 

Step
1
Grooming tools
To save you time and effort, it is best to have all the grooming tools ready and in one place. For grooming your dog, you will need dog-friendly shampoo, a dog brush, nail clippers, grooming shears and a towel to dry your pooch. Place it near the area where you will bathe your dog for easy access.
Step
2
Bath time
Once you have everything prepared, the next step would be to bring your dog to the bathing area and get them wet. Apply shampoo and gently scrub your dog thoroughly, especially in those hard-to-reach areas such as the chin or their legs. After shampooing, rinse well and make sure there’s no area left unwashed.

Finishing touches
Dry your dog off completely using the towel. Then, you can proceed to brush their coat until there are no tangles. If you want to prevent excess shedding, you can use the grooming shears to trim your dog’s coat. Finally, take the nail clippers and carefully cut your dog’s nails, making sure that you don’t cut too short.

One of the most cherished qualities of the Woodle is their calm and easy-going nature. In fact, they are so loving and friendly that they get along with everyone, be it humans or other pets. With this kind of attitude, Woodles will thrive well in a dog-centric setting. If you want to give your pooch the chance to socialize, a playdate is the best way to go. By organizing or attending a playdate, your dog gets to meet up and play with other canines in a new environment. At the same time, you also get to chill for a bit and share stories with other dog owners.  

Step
1
Playdate participants
When thinking about going on a play date with your pooch, the first thing and most important thing that you have to do to is find the participants. Nowadays, it has become easier to find dog owners who are willing to meet up with fellow furparents through social media or specific smartphone apps. You may also go the traditional route and ask friends or neighbors if they would like to join the playdate. Another idea would be to go to a dog park to casually meet other dogs.
Step
2
Meet and greet
Once you have the playdate participants in one place, you should let the dogs get a feel for each other. If this is their first time meeting each other, they would typically sniff and try to get familiar. Generally, Woodles get along well with other dogs. However, you cannot control how other dogs react to your own. During this stage, be alert and if anything goes awry, grab your dog immediately before any trouble ensues.
Step
3
Play time
When all the participating dogs have gotten a good sniff and feel for each other and seem to be at ease and friendly, this is the time when you can leave them to their own devices and have them play. Choose an area where they can run around or play with toys. You can play with them or let them be while you talk to the other furparents. Just make sure to always check on your dog and not let them get too far out of sight.

Woodles can be quite clingy with their owners and because of this, love to spend as much time as possible with you. Unfortunately, this cannot always be the case and there are times when you have to leave your pooch behind, particularly when you are heading to work or doing some other task during the day. Your dog can get separation anxiety when you are gone for prolonged periods of time. The best solution to this would be to send them off to doggy daycare. The Woodle is a well-behaved dog that enjoys being around other pets, which makes them a great candidate for doggy daycare. The budget for this service will vary from cheap to moderate, depending on how long you plan to leave your dog or the facilities you will avail. 

Step
1
Reputable daycare
If you are planning to leave your dog in a daycare, you must be very thorough in choosing the facility that you will go with. After all, you obviously will want your dog in good hands since they will be in charge of your dog’s well-being. Do some research and ask about the most reputable doggy daycares in your area. Consider other factors that might come into play such as budget and services offered.
Step
2
Daycare session
Once you have made up your mind about which doggy daycare you want to go to, get in touch and find out how much the fee will be and if there are any vacancies for your pooch. Then, head to the day care and leave your dog there for the day. More often than not, your dog will be in contact with other dogs during playtime. At the end of the day, you can come back and pick your pooch up.
