Sheltidoodle Puppies for Sale in Wyoming, WY
The Sheltidoodle is a hybrid mix between the Shetland Sheepdog and the Poodle, and usually carries over some of the best characteristics from their parents. They’re highly affectionate, highly intelligent, and tend to love the outdoors. These dogs have an abundance of energy, and early socialization and obedience training is strongly recommended to have a manageable and obedient dog.
With the intelligence of the Poodle and the energy and loyalty of the Sheltie, the Sheltidoodle is a great all-around companion and working dog. Also known as a Sheltipoo or Sheltipoodle, this breed is becoming very popular due to its mild manners and hypoallergenic coat. Standing around 14-19 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 40-50 pounds, the Sheltidoodle's size can fluctuate depending on which type of poodle was used during breeding.
Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Sheltidoodle was originally bred as a companion dog for those who are allergic to animals. The Sheltidoodle was also meant to be a medium breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Shetland Sheepdog or Poodle, both of which can be prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding.
Sheltidoodles are highly affectionate and very loving dogs. They are incredibly loyal to their families and want to protect them without being overly aggressive about it. They make great watchdogs without being too serious and aloof toward new people.
Due to their abundance of energy, early socialization and obedience training is strongly recommended to keep your Sheltidoodle in line. Luckily, the intelligence from the Poodle side makes them easily trainable.
How dog-friendly is Wyoming?
Wyoming is an amazing state for pet-friendly travel destinations, though it has some room to grow for dog owners living in the state. Let’s break down some studies to understand why.
Two major studies rank all 50 states by their pet friendliness, analyzing factors like animal welfare laws, pet care and services, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
The first study, by an animal care group called Pawsafe, ranked Wyoming as the 44th most pet-friendly state. The second study, conducted by a consumer safety review site, ranked Wyoming 46th. In both studies, the major factor for this low ranking was Wyoming’s lax animal cruelty laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
