I think I want an AussieDoodle!

Think you might want an AussieDoodle, but not quite sure?

What is an AussieDoodle?  You may be overwhelmed by tons of information on the internet, not to mention you’ll see conflicting opinions. That’s because not all AussieDoodles are not created equal.

Did you know?

The temperament of a dog isn’t just a footprint of mom or dad. The temperament starts being shaped while the puppies are still in the womb. That’s right. Mom’s nutrition and mood starts affecting the puppies before they are even born. At AwesomeDoodle, our moms are pets, and we start ramping up their diet, including vitamins, as soon as they start their cycle.

A stressed mom can release chemicals in her milk that stress puppies too. That’s why AwesomeDoodle raises our litters in the home, and we smother them with love every day.

The way a puppy is raised from 0-16 weeks, is the very most important part of shaping a puppy’s temperament, behaviors, and social skills. We have a strict schedule that starts before puppies are even born, and continues until puppy goes home. Then, our dedicated puppy coach will help you shape the best dog.

 

How to choose an AussieDoodle breeder

What determines if a breeder is "responsible" or "reputable?" The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club states that responsible breeders should raise their animals with the intent to produce healthy dogs, and to ensure that all animals are provided responsible homes and socialization.  
Would you consider a dog who lives in a “kennel” as a socialized dog?  Would you consider a barn or kennel, the same thing as a home?  While the "dog house" may be humane, clean, and satisfactory, we don’t consider it a HOME. What is a puppy farm? When people hear the word “Puppy Farm” they instantly think, “inhumane conditions, poor puppy health” etc.  However, this isn’t usually the case.  Especially with Aussies and AussieDoodles, most breeders keep clean and healthy conditions for their dogs.  But in the end, these breeders are still considered a “puppy farm".  They are breeding dogs, with the intention of [read more]

What is an AussieDoodle?

AussieDoodles are known as the "Einstein" of dogs. This makes them incredibly easy to train, and they learn what you want very quickly. One might argue that poodles and border collies are smarter but I disagree. They tend to learn human phrases, such as, "go ahead", "back up", "get in your crate" within the first few months. With a little effort, these dogs can be trick dogs, agility dogs, therapy or comfort dogs. They don't typically make great "service" dogs, since they are always so happy to see strangers. I always feel sorry when I see the golden retriever with the "DO NOT PET" sign on his back. We can't speak for ALL AussieDoodles, as they are not all equal, however we can speak to our AussieDoodles. AwesomeDoodles are known to be "happy go lucky" dogs who can do anything. They are Jogging partners, surf-boarders, hikers, doggie disc stars, swimmers, [read more]

AussieDoodles vs other *Doodles

If you know Australian Shepherds, then you probably already know how loyal and smart they are. AussieDoodles are known as the "Einstein" of dog breeds. Why is that? Australian shepherds and poodles are some of the smartest dog breeds out there. Golden retrievers and Labradors are smart too, but what sets the AussieDoodle apart from LabraDoodles and GoldenDoodles, is the loyalty characteristic in the Aussie. Below are a few things to consider (these are simply my opinions), remember, 90% of your dog's personality will come from the way you shape it's behavior and socialize it. AussieDoodle highlights: *Typically able to walk with you OFF LEASH in several different environments after one year of age *Incredibly affectionate *Wider variety of colors *Easier to recall an AussieDoodle back to you, especially in a time of danger *Incredibly easy to train, because of their attentiveness to their owner *Best at Agility and [read more]

Is an AussieDoodle right for me?

Our AussieDoodles are smart, happy go lucky dogs. They love EVERYONE!  They are very low shedding, low allergenic dogs.  That said, the are NOT fit for every family.  We rarely send puppies home to homes where adults work out of the house, or families in apartments.  AussieDoodles, especially ours, are incredibly smart dogs.  They are NOT HAPPY, sitting around for 8 hours, waiting for their humans to come home.  They are too smart to sit there with nothing to do.  Just like a child, AussieDoodles can develop behavior problems, if they are not engaged in human interaction, and not exercised several times a day.  You should be realistic with yourself, and ensure you can make this commitment to such a smart dog.  If you're more the "couch potato" type, you should choose a different breed, or a cat :-) Here are a few reasons you should get an AussieDoodle: [read more]

Are AussieDoodles Hypoallergenic?

While no dogs are 100% Hypoallergenic, poodles are known to be one of the most tolerable dogs for people with allergies. Short haired dogs are usually the worst, while long haired dogs are known to be better.  To date, no family has ever returned one of our F1 AussieDoodles due to allergies. We have sent dozens of puppies home to families who report they have "mild allergies", and they report no reaction to our F1 AussieDoodles. That said, no one could ever guarantee you won't have an allergic reaction to an AussieDoodle (or even a poodle). If you have severe allergies and really want an AussieDoodle, we would suggest getting an F1B AussieDoodle, or spending some time with a F1 AussieDoodle (if you can find one) and seeing if you have a reaction. When two humans have a child, sometimes the child looks like mom, and sometimes like dad, [read more]
