Dog hybrids and crossbreeds

A dog hybrid is a cross between two different breeds (selectively bred varieties).

Hybrids are also known as crossbreeds or crossbreds, although the term crossbreed is also used to refer to a mixed-breed dog where the breed of only one parent or grandparent is known.

Among the better known dog hybrids are Labradoodles and Australian Bulldogs, which each have their own breed fancy associations.

Poodle crosses are popular.

A dog of unknown parentage is called a mongrel.

Wearable Technology Is Going To The Dogs With Voyce

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) Wearable technology has gone to the dogs. No, really, Voyce has designed a wearable device for dogs that measures a range of key vital signs like heart rate and respiratory rate. The device also tracks the dog's sleeping patterns and activity levels. Voyce's online tool that displays the data also provides a library of information if you have questions about your dog's vital signs. The collar is lightweight and not much heavier or bigger than a normal collar. Unfortunately, it doesn't say what your dog is thinking, but our guess is that he just wants another treat or go for a walk. Video provided by TheStreet
