Understanding Aussiedoodles

by | Feb 1, 2022 | Breed Information

Considered a designer breed, the Aussiedoodle isn’t yet recognized by the American Kennel Club. However, it is an increasingly popular dog breed with pet lovers due to its charm and good looks. The Aussiedoodle is a cross between the Australian shepherd and poodle, exhibiting many of the best qualities of each breed.

Physical Characteristics

The Aussiedoodle is an attractive dog that can vary in size depending on whether bred from a standard, miniature, or toy poodle. As a result, you may end up with a dog weighing anywhere between 10 and 70 pounds. Be sure to ask the breeder if you are looking at toy Aussiedoodle, a mini, or a standard Aussiedoodle. A toy will be the smallest, while a standard will be close to the size of full-sized poodle.

One characteristic common to nearly all Aussiedoodle puppies is their coat, which is soft and curly. This dog breed tends to be relatively healthy and rarely develops canine diseases. This plush coat is one of the most recognizable characteristics of Aussiedoodles.

You’ll find Aussiedoodle puppies in various colors, including merle, blue, red, black & tan, black & red, and sable. Regular brushing is a good idea to keep shedding under control, but professional grooming isn’t necessary. Routine veterinary care, trimming the nails, and a healthy diet and exercise are essential for successful Aussiedoodle ownership.

Personality

Aussiedoodles are prized by families because they have charming, goofy personalities and are gentle with children. They are incredibly loyal, family-oriented, and playful. If you own an Aussiedoodle, be prepared to play with them or take them for an energetic walk every day. Your pup will encourage playtime with excited yips and playful nips or nudges.

If you’re looking for a loving and affectionate dog, an Aussiedoodle puppy is a good fit. They are extremely loyal to their families and prefer being with people and other dogs. They don’t like being alone for long periods. Curling up next to you and cuddling is a great evening for an Aussiedoodle. They bond tightly with their owners and are adept at reading and understanding your emotions.

Intelligence

Aussiedoodles are the result of breeding two of the most intelligent purebred dogs. Both poodles and Australian Shepherds are known for their intelligence and trainability. You’ll be able to teach your puppy lots of commands and tricks. Because they are intelligent and eager to please, these dogs enjoy training sessions and anything that challenges them intellectually. You’ll be amazed by how quickly your Aussiedoodle learns new commands and responds to your voice.

Activity Level

Aussiedoodles are lively pets who need moderate to high activity levels. They usually excel at canine sports and love Agility training and other performance-based activities. Because they are so intelligent, you may want to invest in some interactive feeding toys, snuffle mats, and different ways to challenge your Aussiedoodle. Because Australian Shepherds are herding dogs, some Aussiedoodles tend to herd other animals or children.

Health

Aussiedoodles are one of the healthiest designer dog breeds and usually live to be 10-14 years old. They are good eaters and rarely get sick. If you bathe them every 6-8 weeks and brush them a few times a week, their coat will remain soft and fresh. See more information about our Health Guarantee here.
