AUSSIEDOODLES: The Aussiedoodle is a mix between an Australian Shepherd and a Standard Poodle. Aussiedoodles are a very sweet, intelligent, lovable, and energetic breed. We currently raise F1 and F1B Standard Aussiedoodles.
Aussiedoodles can have a straight, wavy, or curly coat depending on the generation and parents used. Our Aussiedoodles tend to shed very little if any at all. Our F1B Aussiedoodles are recommended for those with mild pet allergies. F1 means that one parent is 100% Austrialian Shepherd and one parent is 100% poodle. This is known as an F1, which means they are 50% Aussie & 50% Poodle. F1B means that one parent is an F1 Aussiedoodle bred back to a 100% Poodle. F1 B will be 75% poodle and 25% Aussie.
Aussiedoodles tend to be minimal shedders, we do not guarantee no shedding as this is impossible.
The Aussiedoodle coat will require frequent brushing when grown out and is fairly easy to maintain when trimmed. An Aussiedoodle's coat is different than a double coated dog and can be shaved without damaging the hair. We recommend daily brushing and professional grooming every 6-8 weeks to avoid tangles and matting. We use a metal comb daily and a slicker brush.
Aussiedoodles come in a variety of colors, we typically have solids, tuxedo, abstracts, phantoms, parti, red merle and blue merle.
Our Standard Aussiedoodles generally range from 20-26 inches at the shoulder and can weigh between 40-60+ pounds. Females tend to be smaller than males, but not always
Aussiedoodles make outstanding family pets and are generally great with children of all sizes. They are sweet, outgoing dogs who are full of life! The Aussiedoodle is a highly intelligent and friendly dog. They are very family orientated and love spending time with their people. Aussiedoodles are often used as service or therapy dogs due to their lovable nature and their train ability. They are a well rounded breed who love to get outside and play but can be just as content to lay at your feet. We start them out with introducing them to other dogs, cats, ducks, etc. However their training should not end there. We recommend finding a puppy class to continue their socialization with other people and dogs.
Aussiedoodles are extremely smart and eager to please. They are called the Einstein breed for a good reason. Both breeds are very smart. Training must be done with rewards, firmness, patience and consistency. Both of the breeds used to create the Aussiedoodle are considered to be canine Einsteins, making this one super smart cross-breed. Basic training such as "sit", "come", "stay" etc. should start as soon as you take your Aussiedoodle home to insure your puppy starts off on the right foot. It is important to crate train your Aussiedoodle when they are young so that they don't become destructive in your home and are reliable with potty training. When potty training it is important to stay consistent and start by limiting their space. They should not come home and have free rein of the house and be expected to not have accidents. We start potty training, but it needs to continue consistently when they go home. Limit space, take out often, take out after naps, playtime, and did I say take them out often?? Put the time in now continuing the potty training or put time in later cleaning up messes. Please, please understand they are still babies, they need you to work with them to let them out often, they learn very quickly, just be consistent.
Aussiedoodles require exercise and mental stimulation to prevent boredom and getting into trouble. They will do well in any living situation provided that their needs are sufficiently met. They will do best if given daily walks or playtime or job of some sort. Most Aussiedoodles enjoy swimming, going on hikes, and excel in agility. Aussiedoodles have a medium to high energy level and are best for those who live an active lifestyle.
