Aussiedoodles and the Truth Behind Their Popularity

Full-size Aussiedoodles and mini Aussiedoodles have risen in popularity over the last few years. It’s something special when you open your home to a crossbreed like the Aussiedoodle. They are truly the surprise gift that keeps on giving, for you never know what exactly you are going to get out of these special breeds of dogs. 

Crossbreeds are born out of deliberate mating between two breeds. Many assume that crossbreeds are the best combination of breeds, but it’s not that simple. Genes combine and express themselves in such a way that the breeder often is not in control of the subject. It’s important not to make assumptions of either breed until research can be done on the crossbreed. 

What is an Aussiedoodle’s Activity Level? 

Do know that Aussuedoodles’ activity levels can be moderate to high, depending on their parent’s genes. Aussiedoodles enjoy a nice walk and active playtime and exercise each day. Though these dogs are athletic and can participate in dog sports such as agility, obedience, rally, and flyball, they make excellent therapy dogs.

What About the Breeds to Create Aussiedoodles?

Because the two breeds are used to create Aussiedoodles are considered “canine Einsteins,” it’s important to give yours an important job that will keep him or her super busy. For instance, you could teach your Aussiedoodle to find and bring you things (fetch), move objects, or other safe activities for dogs. If you don’t keep your pup busy, he or she will find their own entertainment. That’s why socialization, training, and positive reinforcement are great for these breeds in the beginning. Remember, praise, play, and rewards (food) go very far. Your reward? An amazing companion.

Did you know? The Aussiedoodle is half Poodle. Poodles are known to be hypoallergenic. So, if you have a dog allergy, this dog is far more tolerable for your allergies. Though allergies from pets are often caused by dander that comes off from shedding, an Aussiedoodle's shedding is comparably less than other breeds. Do test your allergies before adopting your Aussiedoodle, to rule out if he or she will trigger your allergies, to be on the safe side. 

Yes, Aussiedoodle puppies are super adorable, which is a big reason as to why they are ultra-popular. Cuteness sells, which means greedy puppy mills and irresponsible breeders are common. Try looking for an Aussiedoodle at your local shelter or adoption organizations, and you will most likely find one.

Though, if you go with a breeder, select one who does health testing, making sure the puppies won’t carry over genetic diseases that both Australian Shepherds and Poodles are common in. Doing so will minimize the high veterinary bills and maximize the years in your Aussiedoodle.
