Dog breeding practices in the us are absolutely abysmal. Breeders do such a halfassed job tracking and understanding genetics that it’s basically no way to get good pedigrees. This is more of a fault of the kennel clubs not enforce standards and being run as agonies for graft and personal looting as opposed to organizations that breed healthy dogs.

That being said the doodle cross is absolutely a fantastic idea when done correctly and yields some excellent dogs that are highly suitable for modern day city living.
