"It's a trend people have bought into who want something different," says AKC spokeswoman Lisa Peterson. As for why doodles aren't accepted as breeds in their own right, "Designer dogs do not breed pure to type, and each of the offspring will: One may be tall, one may be small, one may have a poodle coat, one may have a Labrador coat."

We only offer the lateral suture technique at Helping Hands. Until the last decade or so, it was the only way to repair a tear of the cranial cruciate ligament. It can be performed on all sizes and ages of dogs. It is performed by replacing the torn ligament with a false ligament on the outside of the joint. The TPLO and the TTA were developed somewhat recently as a stronger repair because, quite simply, if dogs can tear the ligament they were born with, then there is a risk of tearing the new one we put in. The TPLO and TTA are performed with steel plates that are stronger than a false ligament. However, steel plates are very expensive and take more time to implant, thus part of the reason for the huge difference in price. So, with the lateral suture technique, you have to be willing to assume a slightly higher risk that your pet could re-injure themselves. The implant may tear if they move in a way that caused the original one to tear, thus needing a second surgery. The larger the dog, the more weight is being put on the cranial cruciate ligament. The younger the dog, the more active it is likely to be. So if you have that large, super active pup that will not slow down, or you simply want to reduce the risk of them re injuring themselves and tearing the false implant, then the TPLO or TTA may be the way to go. If you have a large, active dog and cannot afford the TPLO or TTA, the lateral suture will still work very well. We do it everyday. You simply have to assume a slightly higher risk and work a little harder at keeping your pet calm and quiet.Age is another factor in pricing. Sometimes we will find ourselves in possession of an older dog due to a divorce or life change situation that forces the owner of a nice dog to have to part with the dog. We will price older dogs down in price simply because they have less service life ahead of them, not due to any lack of ability on their part. The opposite can also be true. We can price a young dog with extremely high potential higher because we can see the amazing potential that the young dog has verses their littermates. Behavioral Problems. Sometimes a individual dog will be priced lower due to a behavioral issue such as they are not good with cats or children or perhaps they don't like to ride in the car. These issues make the dog overall more difficult for us to market, but they might be perfectly suited to someone in the right situation.
