Aussiedoodle Dog Breed Info & Pictures

An Aussiedoodle is the whip-smart and adorable result of breeding an Australian Shepherd and a Poodle. Generally, their Poodle parent is either standard or miniature. A mini Aussiedoodle can weigh around 25 lbs, but a standard Aussiedoodle can weigh as much as 70 lbs! While Poodles tend to have low-shedding coats, Aussiedoodles wont necessarily be hypoallergenic. This breed can have different types of fur: loose and curly, or long and straight.

Temperament

Like all mixed breeds, an Aussiedoodles temperament depends on their parentage....

Because both Poodles and Australian Shepherds are praised for their intelligence, the Aussiedoodle will love learning new tricks, taking long walks, and playing! To avoid boredom, ensure your Aussiedoodle has plenty of mental stimulation and exercise. Australian Shepherds are herding dogs, so Aussiedoodle puppies may display herding instincts like nipping and herding kids in the family. Correct this behavior by training your pup with positive reinforcement techniques and plenty of socialization.

Caring For a Aussiedoodle

Aussiedoodles need at least 30 to 60 minutes of exercise and play per day....

While they can potentially live as apartment dogs, theyll thrive in an area with a yard for them to roam and run. The Aussiedoodle is a companion dog, and theyll love spending time with their families theyre a highly affectionate breed, and they get along well with children. In terms of grooming, you should clip your Aussiedoodles fur every eight to 12 weeks if they have a curly coat, and brush their coat at least every other day if they have long, straight fur.

Aussiedoodle History

Breed History

In the late 1980s, a Labrador Retriever was crossed with a Poodle in an attempt to create a guide dog breed for people with dog allergies....

Since then, Poodle mixes have spiked. The Aussiedoodle is just one of many vibrant breeds that have been crossed with Poodle parents. Aussiedoodles have since become excellent assistant dogs, agility dogs, and family companions!
