Designer breeds are dogs that look beautiful because of the features their breed usually has. The short answer is yes, they are still in style, but like anything else, different types come in and out of style.
When most people think of designer or show dog breeds, a poodle is the first breed that comes to mind, with their perfectly trimmed hair and fancy accessories. However, they aren’t so popular anymore.
Now, most of the popular breeds are ones that are hybrids and mixes between two pure breeds. And not surprisingly, most of these hybrids are part poodles. The curly and wavy fur is what is the biggest trend at the moment.
Plus, one of the poodle’s most dominating genes is their hair. This gene means most of the hybrids from this breed will be hypoallergenic and have luscious curly or wavy hair that looks adorable on any dog.
Here are some of the most stylin’ dog breeds out there right now.
