This is an attractive dog that comes in a variety of colors. The Australian Shepherd has traditionally been a herding type dog and believe it or not the working class Standard Poodle is a great hunting dog, these traits can also be passed onto the Aussiedoodle as well. The added benefit to Standard Poodle lovers is that by crossing with the Aussie, it lifts the ear canal thereby reducing the risk of ear infections that many Poodle owners have to deal with.
There are a few different spellings of the breed name for this visually stunning medium size dog which include: Aussiepoo, Aussi-Poo, and Aussiedoodle. The deliberate cross breeding of the Australian Shepherd and Standard Poodle, two of the most intelligent breeds in the world, creates a wonderful new hybrid known as the Aussiedoodle.
If you are looking for a quality pet, non to low shedding, great with kids and other animals that is super loving and easy to train then this is your breed. Once you meet an Aussiedoodle you’ll be hooked for life.
The reason behind crossing the Australian Shepherd and the Standard Poodle was to produce a puppy that holds desired traits from both the Poodle and the Australian Shepherd. Crossing the two breeds gives you a dog that has the Aussie’s beautiful color combinations and those amazing blue eyes as well as their human like intelligent brain mixed with the high intelligence of the Poodle and excellent conformation, low to non shedding coat you get an amazing dog. Period. Plus, Aussiedoodles are TOO CUTE!
When cross breeding two purebred dogs you also get what is called hybrid vigor, resulting in a healthier dog with superior genetic constitution.
Aussiedoodle are also amazing with children and have more than your average amount of patience and loyalty. Unlike the Goldendoodle who will make friends with and “go” with basically anyone.. the Aussiedoodle is considered to be a more of a loyal dog and their “people” mean everything to them. I don’t mean they are an unfriendly dog by any means.. for example.. an Aussiedoodles can be trusted off leash and be dependable to follow their owners in a crowd where a Goldendoodle may be just as happy to follow the next friendly person walking by. Nothing against the Goldendoodle. I love the overly friendly nature of the Goldendoodle. Just using them as a comparison.
The Aussie is well known for it’s patience. They are extremely intelligent, loyal, sweet, and playful for life. They have become very popular as assistance dogs to the handicapped and elderly, as well as being trained as top agility prospects. In general, they are known for being a rather quiet breed. However, they are not suited well to apartment life unless you lead an active lifestyle. They need a good 30 minutes of exercise daily, either running, brisk walking, swimming, or rigorous play with another dog or their human family.
Aussiedoodles come in all the colors of the rainbow…
