Coat and Colors.
The Mixed Poodle doggie come in many colors combinations, but the most common is white with tan or black markings.
“ The are relatively easy to train.”
But !!!! Do to the fact that Jack Russell Terriers are known for their exceptional intelligence and energy, which can quickly lead them into trouble without skilled training from an early age.
The Poodle also being very intelligent and calm will made a great combination and a smart choice to breed this two and getting a great hybrid dog.
Very Important !!!
" Training requires patience and consistency."
Be Consistent by correcting your hybrid dog every time it does something wrong and praise him every time he does something right.
My recommendation for all kind of dogs breeds:
You should be trained with a soft and gentle hand without harsh tones or tactics and lots of positive reinforcement like food treats and most important issue is start training as early as possible if you want to have an happy life with your cute companion.
! Whoever said you can't buy happiness forgot little puppies !
