The Schipper –Poos originates back in the 1980s. During this period, the breeders begin to mix two pure-bred dogs to create puppy with ideal dominating traits from each of them. They mix two breeds to create a smaller, hypo-allergenic, gentler and healthy hybrid. The parent breed of Schipper-Poo has long stories. The Schipperke was mainly a watchdog, and it became popular after Queen Marie Henriette had attended one of the Brussels show. In 1888, the breed was imported to the United States. The Poodle is one of the oldest and well-known breeds. In Germany, this breed began as a combination of several North African Barbet and the European breeds. It is also thought that cross-breeding Poodles created the Poodle\'s smaller versions.

Depending on the coat, Schipper-Poo requires maintenance. This is an average shedding dog that requires occasional bathing. However, grooming is recommended daily. This is a typically clean breed that emits a slight odor and requires to bath when getting into something dirty and smelly. To keep the surroundings overwhelmed by discarded hair, it is necessary to brush his hair several times a week. When he sheds, more than giving a warm water bath can help to remove excess hair by brushing. The breed may have tear stains around his eyes so wiping it daily using warm water can clear them. Brushing his teeth and trimming of nails is also important on a weekly basis. This is a medium sized dog that is prone to obesity. Thus the food should be according to his age, size, and activity that he does daily. He also suffers from digestive issues, so low fat, and nutrient-rich food is needed that are free from fillers.
