Aussiedoodles are intelligent, friendly, affectionate and sociable dogs. These puppies are adorable, and it’s one of the reasons they are so popular. They are companion dogs. They love being with people and need to live in the house, never outdoors. The Aussiedoodle is playful and loyal, and it likes to spend quality time with its family. It can be very fun and active, but can also be lazy and snuggly. Most Aussiedoodles are able to stay calm indoor, but because of the crossbreed’s instinct to herd, some may not be suitable for apartment living. Aussiedoodles are extremely loving towards children and make excellent family pets.
Size: The Aussiedoodle normally weighs about 40 to 60 pounds, and stands about 11 to 14 inches. The Mown Size Aussiedoodle is slightly smaller at 25 to 40 pounds, while the miniatures usually weigh 12 to 24 pounds.
Personality: The Aussiedoodle has high levels of adaptability and social needs, with an outgoing and almost restless personality. It is very intelligent, and perhaps because of its herding ancestor, it is eager to learn and hardworking. The crossbreed is very affectionate, gentle and sweet, and with proper training, it can easily make a loving and loyal companion. The Aussiedoodle is a designer dog breed. It is the result of mating between two of the most intelligent dogs, the Standard Poodle and the Australian Shepherd. Being a crossbreed, the Aussiedoodle can possess both qualities of the parents. But you will never know what you are going to get.
Temperament: Aussiedoodles are cheerful, enthusiastic dogs with bundles of energy. They are extremely focused on their family, and need to be indoors and to feel included at all times. They have no tolerance for boredom or isolation, and will quickly become destructive or hyperactive if ignored or left alone for long periods, which is understandable given that they have the intelligence of a young child. Speaking of children, this hybrid is a perfect choice for families with kids. It has virtually no aggressive tendencies, and is also usually very accepting of, and gentle with, small pets of any species. A hybrid dog’s temperament can often differ greatly based on the specific genetic contribution of each parent. However, when it comes to Aussiedoodles they are generally regarded as extremely intelligent, playful and loving dogs. The traits that they inherit come from both their Poodle and Australian Shepherd parents.
Activity Requirements: 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. These dogs love to learn, and will begin to understand even quite complex commands within just a few repetitions. With one parent having a very strong working background, Aussiedoodles often benefit from being given jobs to do; carrying groceries, retrieving mail, picking up laundry – they are limited only by the owner’s imagination, and will be all the happier for being kept busy.
Behavioral Traits: If you see your Aussiedoodle trying to herd family members, especially children, by bumping or nipping at them, he’s not being aggressive; he’s following his instincts. That’s one instinctive behavior that shouldn’t be permitted, though.
Diet: Puppies under six months old should be fed 3 times daily a highest quality food. Aussiedoodles older than 6 months should only be fed twice daily. Arrange the meals at fixed times so that house training and his excretion times are predictable. The best time for the first meal is around 7am. Second meal at 12pm and dinner at 5pm. No food should be offered to your puppy after 5pm. This is to ensure that your puppy has enough time to digest the food before bedtime. As your puppy approaches 6 months old, it is advisable to seek your vet’s advice on the transition to a 2-meal feeding schedule. Keeping this all in mind, general guidelines are as follows:
2 to 4 lbs. 1/3 to 1/2 cups per day.
5 to 8 lbs. 1/2 to 3/4 cups per day.
8 to 10 lb. adult = 1/2 to 3/4 cups per day.
10 to 12 lb. adult = 3/4 to 1 cup per day.
13 to 16 lb. adult = 1 to 1 and 1/4 cups per day.
Trainability: An Aussiedoodle will undoubtedly be smart and highly trainable, thanks to the intelligence of both breeds and the Australian Shepherd’s strong desire to do a job. If you train this breed with positive reinforcement techniques, showing him what you like by rewarding him with praise, play and treats, he’s likely to learn quickly and happily. Start training your puppy the day you bring him home. Even at eight weeks old, he is capable of soaking up everything you can teach him.
