Since 2016 we have been thrilled to have introduced the amazing Irish Doodle into our breeding program. Irish Doodles are a truly beautiful adition to the Doodle world, the 'Irish' part relates to the addition of the majestic Irish Setter (sometimes known as Red Setter). Like Goldendoodles, they vary in size depending on the size of the parents, here at Kizzabella we are breeding Miniature and Mediums which range in size from around Cocker Spaniel size up to Irish Setter size.
Irish Doodles are a relatively rare breed who are gaining huge popularity in the States due to the excellent gentle, friendly natures of the Irish Setter, the more minimal shedding of their coats and the vibrant, rich chestnut red which in this combination, and if correctly bred (very important!!) they have a higher chance of staying the true deep red throughout their lives than pure Goldendoodles.
These dogs are highly sought after in the States and will certainly follow here as people discover what fantastic dogs they are, a truly superb addition to the 'Doodle' family of breeds. They are similar to Goldendoodles being gentle, friendly and loving in nature, excellent with families and a wonderful all round family dog.
Here at Kizzabella we are only breeding from Show type Irish Setter lines; these have very different temperaments to the working type, which are commonly used to create Irish Doodles in the States. Show type Irish Setters are well known for their kind; laid back, gentle natures, very different to the working types which are bred to be on the go in the field all day and in our opinion don't make very good pets for most households unless you are prepared to work them as they need a job to do.
Coat type should be long and wavy to more curly, with the facial furnishings, a true 'Doodle' type coat.
