About Aussiedoodles

The Aussiedoodle is a cross between an Australian Shepherd and a Poodle, usually a Standard or Miniature Poodle. Both of the breeds used to create Aussiedoodles are considered to be canine Einsteins, making this one super smart cross-breed.
Children friendly

Aussiedoodles get along with children, and they're big enough that they can live in a household with a toddler.

Love company

If you want an outdoor dog who can be left alone for long periods, the Aussiedoodle may not be for you.

Excellent housekeeper

Aussiedoodles make excellent watchdogs and
will alert their people to approaching strangers.

Lovers of exercise

Aussiedoodles need a lot of exercise! Daily walks and plenty of room to play are vital to their happiness.

Health

Aussiedoodles are generally healthy dogs, and a responsible breeder will test breeding stock for health concerns such as hip dysplasia, epilepsy, cataracts and certain forms of cancer.  An Aussiedoodle’s ears should be checked regularly to remove foreign matter and avoid a buildup of wax, and his teeth should be brushed regularly.

Training

Early socialization and obedience training are both musts for the Aussiedoodle. One of the most frequent reasons Aussiedoodles end up in rescue situations is owners couldn’t (or wouldn’t) constructively channel the breed’s boundless energy through training. Aussiedodles bond strongly to their families and so can be territorial and overprotective of their owners’ property, and they can become destructive if left without companionship for long periods too often. Fortunately, that loyalty combined with the breed’s keen intelligence and high energy makes them very easy to train.

Feeding

The Aussiedoodle should do well on a high-quality dog food, whether commercially manufactured or home-prepared with your veterinarian’s supervision and approval. Any diet should be appropriate to the dog’s age (puppy, adult, or senior). Some dogs are prone to getting overweight, so watch your dog’s calorie consumption and weight level. Treats can be an important aid in training, but giving too many can cause obesity. Learn about which human foods are safe for dogs, and which are not. Check with your vet if you have any concerns about your dog’s weight or diet. Clean, fresh water should be available at all times.

Grooming

In general, semi-weekly brushing sessions will keep the Aussiedoodle’s coat looking its best. Aussiedoodles often play outdoors, so it’s not unusual for them to come in dirtier than they left. But unless they’ve gotten into a particularly messy situation, they require a bath only occasionally. As with all breeds, the Aussie‘s nails should be trimmed regularly.
