Hey, hey, hey… If you wish to send an image and description in of your Jackadoodles, we would love to post it.
This is Dylan our jackadoodle when he was about 6 months old, he will be 5 this year and he is such a sweetheart. He is so full of energy and gets into all sorts of mischief. He’s brilliant at football and would probably spend all day running round with a ball practically attached to his nose! He’s very agile and I’ve often wondered about joining a flyball team but the problem is he think’s every ball he see’s is his! He also loves to cuddle up on the sofa and gets as close as he possibly can. He’s gets so excited when he meets people and everyone loves him. He’s a fantastic loving and loyal dog and I wouldn’t swap him for the world.
This is Bunty, my 6 month old Jackadoodle who is the most adorable pup. He is very loving and has a very sweet nature. He gets very excited when he meets anyone and has been easy to train with simple commands such as ‘sit’ and ‘stay’. He hasn’t quite mastered walking to heel when off the lead yet, it is still very much a work in process. Life with Bunty is a very happy experience.

was in July 2010. I lasted 3 weeks without a dog in the house and made the decision to look for another. I knew I wanted a much smaller dog and one that shed less hair because I prefer the dog to live indoors. Also, my mum is my ‘babysitter’ while I am at work and a smaller dog is easier to manage.
I stumbled across a breeder that had just announced their first litter of jackadoodles. After some research I thought that breed would be perfect. When I called there were only 2 bitches and 1 dog left. I requested the dog be held over until I visited that evening to see him. Jackadoodle pups are way too cute and I fell in love instantly. He was so tiny and loved cuddles.
Now 2 years on and fully grown Alfie is the perfect size for a house dog. He is very loveable and patient with children but excitable when I have visitors. There are moments when a lurking anxiety appears in Alfie and he is a complusive licker, often just lapping air. Not sure why that happens, so if you have an gems of knowledge on the subject please pass them on (Thats you readers, as well [Ed]). I do believe these little traits will lessen as he ages. He is becoming much more responsive to training now, with a definite intelligence shining through.
Grooming is a pleasure with Alfie. He stands still while a wash and trim his hair but wriggles around to enjoy the hair dryer blasting at his lushious locks. I am wary to clip his hair short so I tend to just tidy up his floppy fringe, around his paws and legs with scissors.
I have been enquiring about agility classes as I believe they would be perfect for his energy and eagerness to follow command (when I have a treat in my hand). He leaps a lot. The smallest of steps he approaches as if it were mount everest. It wouldn’t be out of place to attach a cape and call him ‘superdog’.

Frankie came into our lives 14 months ago, at 10 months old. He came from a local rescue centre- he had been dumped in woods at 8 months of age, and had been in kennels for 8 weeks before we were lucky to encounter him.
The previous ‘owners’ had him chipped, but when they were contacted when he was handed in to kennels, they said they didn’t want him, and to ‘do what you want’ with him. My anger at the vile way he was treated is now replaced by a sense of karma eventually getting him to us, his proper family.
He is an absolute angel- you truly couldn’t ask for a more loving little dog. He’s idolised by everyone, and the only thing that outshines the love we all have for him is the love he gives. He was a bag of bones when we got him, and had a huge amount of coarse white hair. He looks a different dog now!! We only discovered he’s a jackadoodle when I updated his microchip details- but now having seen so many pictures and read up on them, it’s so obvious!!

This is Harry a four year old Jackadoodle. He is, by far, the most self-willed and naughtiest dog I have ever owned.
However, he is also the most loving. Life with him is never, ever boring! He is absolutely great with all other dogs and is good friends with my Bengal cat, Jasper.
He really is a little dog with a great big personality.
