The Aussiedoodle is a relatively new designer dog breed that has risen extremely fast in popularity. In fact, it is more popular in the United States than in Australia.
The Aussiedoodle is a medium sized,
extremely fluffy and almost indecently cute breed of designer dog created by crossing an Australian Shepherd and a Standard Poodle. Like most designer dogs created from a crossing of two purebreds, the Aussiedoodle’s physical characteristics can sometime vary. But overall, they are a medium sized dog with a slim yet strong body. Their coats can vary in color and is straight, wavey or curly.
Aussiedoodles, like both their parents, are extremely intelligent and trainable. They are also eager to please and love having a job to do. Be it playing catch or competing in agility.
The level of grooming that an Aussiedoodle requires will vary depending on how curly its coat is. Dogs that have a wavier coat often only require combing once or twice a week, whereas dogs with a curlier coat need to be groomed more often.
Like Poodles and Australian Shepherds, Aussiedoodles are extremely intelligent, if not more so. This makes training them a pleasure as they are eager to please and quick to pick up on things. They do best when trained using reward based training methods and tend not to respond well to harsh training techniques. Owners should have a loving but firm hand and should provide Aussiedoodles with consistent leadership.
The average weight of a hybrid breed is usually estimated as the average weight of its two parents. Aussiedoodles can weigh anywhere between 25 to 70 pounds.
Common Health Problems
Like most purebred crosses, Aussiedoodles are an extremely healthy breed of dog and do not suffer from any known hereditary ailments.
An Aussiedoodle that is well cared for will often enjoy a lifespan of up to 12 years.
