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.
The Aussiedoodle is a cross between an Australian Shepherd and a Poodle, usually a Standard or Miniature Poodle. He is intelligent, friendly and affectionate. Depending on the size of the Poodle used in the cross, an Aussiedoodleʼs weight can range from 25 to 70 pounds.
The Aussiedoodle is a crossbreed, the result of a deliberate mating between two different breeds. Opening your heart and home to a crossbreed is like opening a beautifully wrapped package on your birthday: you never know whatʼs going to beinside. Itʼs often assumed that a crossbreed will combine the best of two or more breeds, but genetics doesnʼt always work that way. The way genes combine and express themselves is not always subject to a breederʼs control, even less so when two different breeds are crossed.
Aussiedoodles have a moderate to high activity level. They need a good walk or active playtime each day, and they are athletic enough to participate in such dog sports as agility, ﬂyball, obedience and rally. They can also be excellent therapy dogs.
Both of the breeds used to create Aussiedoodles are considered to be canine Einsteins. Itʼs to your beneﬁt to give the Aussiedoodle a job that will keep him busy, busy, busy. Teach him to ﬁnd and bring you things, pull your gardening equipment around the yard, or anything else you can think of. Keeping him occupied will ensure that he doesnʼt go off and ﬁnd his own (likely destructive) entertainment. But if you begin socialization and training early and use positive reinforcement techniques such as praise, play and food rewards, you will be rewarded with a wonderful companion.
Poodles have a reputation for being hypoallergenic, meaning that they can be tolerated by people who have allergies to dogs. Because they have the Poodle in their heritage, Aussiedoodles are also sometimes promoted as being hypoallergenic. But allergies are caused not by a particular dog coat type but by dander, the dead skin cells that are shed by all dogs.There is no scientiﬁc evidence that any breed or crossbreed is more or less allergenic than any other dog. Some people with mild allergies react less severely to particular dogs, but no reputable breeder will guarantee that her dogs are hypoallergenic.
