Irish Wolfoodle Characteristics

The Irish Wolfoodle is a loving, intelligent hybrid mix between the Irish Wolfhound and the Standard Poodle.  These gentle giants are often calm and reserved, perfect for those with a more laid-back lifestyle.  Depending on the breeder, some Irish Wolfoodles take on the poodle coat and are hypoallergenic. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Large
  • Trainability Determined

Standing anywhere between 16 and 33 inches tall at the shoulder, the Irish Wolfoodle fits comfortably in the "Giant Breed" category.  Retaining the best qualities of both breeds, these dogs make a smart and playful household companion. Even though these are calm and well-tempered dogs, early obedience training and socialization are recommended to ensure complete control over such a large breed. 
 
Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Irish Wolfoodle was originally bred as a companion dog for people who are allergic to animals. The Irish Wolfoodle was also meant to be a large breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Irish Wolfhound or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding. However, not all Irish Wolfoodles are hypoallergenic, so be sure to meet with your breeder and examine their coats before purchase.
 
Irish Wolfoodles are generally too large to thrive in an apartment setting. They’ll be much happier in bigger homes where with backyards and space to get their energy out. They love playing and running with their families. 
 
These dogs also have rather dense coats and get heat exhaustion quite rapidly, so don't leave them in the back yard for extended periods when it's hot outside.
