AussieDoodle Puppy Reviews2019-08-19T09:53:28-05:00

When you’re searching for the best AussieDoodle puppy breeders, you may be overwhelmed by tons of website hype, and who has time to read all that? While we encourage you to read up on AwesomeDoodle to see how we raise our puppies, you don’t have to take our word for it. See below actual comments from our AussieDoodle Puppy Owners.

Bodie Cooper

"Bodie Cooper is amazing! I can't even begin to tell you how great he is and how much we all love him. Crate training was a breeze, actually there was no crate training. He was fine with it from the beginning. We haven't actually used the big downstairs one but his toys are in there and he often runs in there to lay down for a awhile or get a toy. I think he would nap in there but he prefers the floor by the A/C vent. I guess it might be a different story once we start leaving him in there more. So far I have only left him in it once while he was napping but he wasn't upset when he awoke and I wasn't in there. Potty training is over I think! He had a couple of accidents in the beginning but they were our fault. Now every time I take him out he goes right away and then runs over to me for his congratulatory pats. Whenever we are done outside playing or for potty trips he just follows me back inside. Sometimes tho, he will pee and not follow me and in those cases it is always that he wants to stay out and poop. I am on a good schedule of taking him out regularly but if I am late he will just whimper and circle and out we go. We have taken him out in the car or had company every day. Yesterday he had a 3 hour play date with my sister's dogs, 2 westies and a schnauzer. He played so well with them. He had a few issues with whining in the car but that is almost over. He had his first vet visit and all was well, he had the booster shot and they started him on flea and tick prevention and heartguard. He learns so fast that it is mind boggling! He sits regularly and we are working on other things. The first day he wouldn't get 10 yards away from me but even now, 5 days later he stays pretty close. We go outside and he stays within a certain perimeter of me at all times. I just call and he comes running. It is so great to not need a leash but I assume that will change as he gets braver. My three grandchildren (11,7,5) were here for his first three days and they all bonded immediately. He loved playing with them. Bodie is my dream dog and I couldn't be happier!" - Donna

Trooper

Also, I would like to personally thank you for how wonderful you, Sharon, Erin, and Natalie have all been during this process! I have watched every single video and every question that I have had has been kindly answered in a quick time frame! The wealth of knowledge that I have gained from you all is just truly unbelievable! I am beyond thankful for resources you provide new AwesomeDoodle owners. It's Amazing. - Kristi

Arnie

"Arnie is doing great! He is just so adorable! He's growing like a weed though! He has the occasional accident but has been doing really well with potty training. He hasn't had an accident in his kennel since the first week or two we had him home, which is great! He is such a smart boy! It's crazy how fast he has learned phrases. He is already an expert at "Arnie come" (but you better have a treat when he gets there ha!). He will come over to you and sit down like a good boy! I've even tested him when he's playing in the yard with our other dog and he still comes. I can definitely tell he's teething. Especially just in the last couple days he's started to try to chew on anything he can get his mouth on. He has a few ropes and balls that he loves to chew on so I just redirect his biting to those and it works really well. We start his first puppy class on Saturday and I can't wait to see how he does! I really want to start working with him on loose leash walking because right now he does not like walking on a leash at all. The puppy class will be awesome for him though: burn some energy and make some more pup friends! Thanks again AD for such an amazing pup!" - Ashlynn

Murphy

Thank you so much for the wonderful puppy! Murphy has fit right into our family and is a joy! Dana did a great job of starting him on the right road. From day one, he has slept in his crate all night without a peep. Potty training is getting better, however, to be honest we are the ones who are trained! He did go to the door last night and whimpered to go out! Our biggest issue was getting him used to a collar and a leash but we are doing well with that now (you’re video was very helpful). Yes, we have our puppy crazy times which are to be expected. Just wanted to thank you for the super job you do with your puppies! Murphy's Family

Stormy

"Thank you for the awesome prizes for Stormy! He loves the duck! Overall things seem to be going well. We average 1-2 accidents a day as long as we are diligent with taking him outside. He has two locations in our house that he likes to use for pottying, so if we catch him heading to those spots, we quickly call him and head outside. In this situation, he typically comes immediately, we head to the front door together and he quickly does his business outside. Generally coming when called is hit or miss. It depends on what he is doing and where we are. If he is playing with his toys, he will come quickly with his toy ready to play. If he isn't doing much, he comes quickly ready for treats. If he is doing something naughty, he runs the other way! Example, if he finds one of my child's shoes, I will call him (still happy and upbeat), but he will grab the shoe and run the other way. I think he knows he shouldn't have it and I am going to take it away. I try not to chase him, instead I try to get one of his favorite toys and get him to come to me. Sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't. So, overall we are making progress, but we still have some work to do. Biting!!! Oh my does he ever! We know that it is just puppy exploring and teething, but wow! We just continuously give him his toys. He is having more non-biting times where we can just pet him or play with his ball, but it eventually will turn into him biting everything and everyone around. Once that starts, I give him his toys and remove myself from the interaction. We love him and think he is a great pup and are so happy to have him! In the words of my son "getting Stormy is the best thing that has ever happened to me" - Heather

Atlas

"Thank you so much for checking in and all the super helpful tips and articles to read/watch. We are LOVING, enjoying and having a wonderful time with Atlas. Some of the successes: - He has been sleeping all night (~7 hours) without crying. He did for the first two nights but was very minor. - He follows the “sit” command most of the time - super IMPRESSED - He did fantastic at housebreaking and seems adjusted to his new home" - Nilka

Izzy Blue

"Izzy is doing amazing! She is sooo smart!(maybe a little too smart at times, haha) I found a solution to my bells on the doorknob issue that I mentioned previously (no handle on the door). I found an electronic doorbell called the Smart Bell by Mighty Paw. I installed it about a week and a half ago and everything finally “clicked” for Izzy a few days ago! She now knows to ring her doorbell every time she needs to go potty (only downside is that she thinks she should also ring it to go play outside). I have to try to remember to film her doing it and I’ll post it for everyone! Training is also going really well. She knows how to sit, lie down, come, and learned shake in two days! We are working on stay now—that’s a tough one. We weighed her and she is now 8.2 lbs (up from 4.2 at 8 wks)! Next vet appointment is the 20th for more vaccines. We are looking forward to when she is 16 weeks so she can start going on walks in our neighborhood and around town with us. This week we brought her with to go counter top shopping and everyone in the store fell in love!" - Reba

Koda

"We were thrilled to bring Koda home yesterday! Overall, we feel yesterday and today were very successful. So far Koda is fitting right in to his new home. He spent plenty of time playing outside and has willingly gone into his crate for naps and bedtime. He slept in his crate last night, waking up only once. He has had a few accidents but is doing a great job going to the potty outside. Koda had his vet appointment this morning. He weighed in at 9.1 lbs and is doing really well. He received his 2nd round of shots and didn’t even cry!" - Michelle

Banksy

"Banksy is doing well and we have him working with the trainer. He does very well with his eye contact, sitting and coming when called, especially when he knows there is a treat involved (he is very food motivated). He is even doing well on the leash." - Jeannette

Lucy

"Lucy is doing great. She likes to chase moths & pounce on them. This is actually quite comical. She loves her tummy rubbed by EVERYONE! Everyone we meet comments on how calm & good she is. I always mention that she has crazy puppy time also. We continue to take her to socialization class every Saturday and Alexandra & Jameson are planning on getting together next week. We have about 5 dogs in our neighborhood that all play together. They vary in sizes from a 15 lb pug to a 90 lb pit bull. The all love playing together & they all play great. Lucy weighed in yesterday at a whopping 22 lbs. Lucy is very smart as well. I mentioned in an earlier email that she knows our house when walking around the block. She also knows every single house that has a dog even if they’re not outside. We have a beehive shaped toy with a hole in it. It’s weighted at the bottom like a weeble so it stays upright. We put her food inside. She has to roll it around for the food to come out the hole. Lucy is an expert. Our previous dog couldn’t figure out how to get the food out even when we showed her. It took Lucy one time to show her. She’s almost potty trained. We haven’t had an accident in the house for almost a week. She rings her doorbell almost every time. I know when she has to go a little bit vs. really bad. When she has to go bad, she attacks the doorbell. Training is going ok. She’s having a hard time with “come” but sits, lays down & even stay is pretty good. She comes when we call her if we have a treat, but if we don’t, she doesn’t really come every time. Dave has taught her to roll over as well." I have told everyone about AwesomeDoodle & a few have checked out the website. Thank you again for all your emails, videos & articles." - Margie

Lola

"She always got cooing and such from passersby, but now I can't even walk around the block! I could see the gray coming in under the black, but once the black was gone she was completely gray with a lot of white and a little tan on her front paws and face. On Sunday afternoon she literally stopped the whole block and a group of people surrounded her - petting and cooing and giving tummy rubs and asking all about her breed. Then yesterday a UPS truck driver literally pulled over to stop, ask if he could pet her and got out just to find out what kind of puppy she was!"- Pamela

Barley

"We haven't written back in a while, partly because it's been a busy summer but also partly because Barley has been such a laid back and fun dood - that we've been able to take on each new phase in stride and haven't faced any major challenges or setbacks. We've spent a lot of our summer remodeling our home, which means that for several weeks in a row, Barley made near-daily trips to Lowe's with us which has made him great around strangers and in public settings. Despite the remodel disruption, Barley got the hang of potty training pretty early on (with a few exceptions along the way) and we think his general adaptability to various settings is another outcome of the house project. Barley loves walks and trips to our nearby park, where he has gotten really good at jumping from tree stump to tree stump at the playground. We also get a kick out of our monthly Barkbox subscription to get new toys and different treats all the time. In the summer heat he loves getting in the water and either splashing or just taking a quick soak. I attached a few photos here but you can also check out his Instagram @barley_mcdog Over the past 2 weeks we've been phasing in daycare a bit more, which he LOVES - I can tell by how fired up he gets when we pull into the parking lot. Not too many dislikes to report... we did have to work on a little bit of anxiety barking if we step outside our fenced area without him, but we're making progress there too. Barley is weighing in right around 15 lb (at his last round of shots this week) and cuter by the day. We get asked by someone new almost every day if he's a bernedoodle because of his coloring, but we love bragging about him and occasionally getting a chance to put in a good word for AwesomeDoodle. Thanks again for all the guidance and support - it has meant a lot even if we haven't written back every time to say so. This has been such a fun journey and we already can't imagine our lives without Barley :)- Lauren

Eddie

"Eddie is an amazing puppy. He has truly become part of our family! He loves to play with other dogs! He loves splashing around in sprinklers and occasionally his water bowl. He loves meeting new people. He loves to chew on his bully sticks and prefers the hard floor to any type of bed! Haha. He loves food. He loves his hyper pet frisbee. And he prefers the cat’s toys to his. Except his lamb. He definitely loves his lamb. His training is unbelievable. I hired an in home trainer and we started at 9 weeks and just had our last of 5 sessions at 16 weeks. He is potty trained and crate trained and has been for a while. He sits. He knows down. He loose leash walks. He comes. He stays. He waits. He “parks it”. He knows how to ask for permission to get on The couch and he knows what off means when it’s time to get off. He’s the best. Eddie knows when it’s bed time. He seems to always know when it’s the last chance to potty and he knows the next step is upstairs to bed:). He lays on the cool bathroom floor until I say “ Eddie, time to go night night” and then he jumps up and walks eagerly into his crate! He sleeps like a teenage boy! Some of the ways I socialize him are at puppy play time at Petco, in my neighborhood dog park ( just recently), at the coffee shop, on restaurant patios when allowed, at my yoga studio, and when I’m driving my 8th grader and 10th grader all over town. We also still ring the doorbell and run the vacuum and all those types of things but it’s so interesting how this process works. He had never seen an electric scooter before or anything like that and there was one parked in our neighborhood. We went on a walk and he was really afraid of it at first. It took him a while to get close. I never would have thought to introduce him to a parked scooter:) Soccer games start soon and that’s the next step for us!! 😀 I don’t have training videos yet to show off skills but we will work on That and try to send one soon! Thanks for all your support. We love him to pieces and he is just the smartest and sweetest dog ever!!!" - Tisha

Circe

"Circe is doing great and really excelling at her puppy kindergarten class! She’s very good at keeping focused even in high-distraction environments. I can’t take her anywhere without getting stopped a dozen times—everyone loves her! She does get very excited around new people and jumps a lot, but we’re working on that! She also has her own instagram account now and already has some devoted followers! She’s a little ham and I love her so much." - Laura

Ollie

"I cannot get enough of Olive (Dani X Gator, 4 months)! She is so unbelievably perfect. We started a tricks class at our local training club today and the instructor raved about her and used her for demos. She even said she was so cute she should do commercials! 😂 I knew y'all could appreciate that since all of our ADs are the best pups in the world!"- Michelle

Ginger

"Wanted to share picture of Ginger! She’s the best - hanging out with my daughter Jasmin in Deep Creek. What a joy to have her - we want another one!!!" - Ulka

Hamilton

"Hamilton is just amazing! It’s hard to believe it’s only 2 months that he has been a a part of our family, because he just acclimated so quickly to our world and lifestyle! Favorite things: ANYTHING that Wilson has is exactly what he wants, even if he has the same thing :). Aside from that, he loves belly rubs, the cat, playing fetch, morning walks, training class, every person he meets, (regardless of its the first or hundredth time), his bed, crinkling water bottles, the pool, (water in general) his brother and above all, Chesney and me! I have yet to find anything he doesn’t like. Anything that he was leery of, we’ve conditioned him to accept it, like the vacuum and hairdryer. Socializing is a constant activity. Now that he’s all set on shots, we’ve really been hitting the town. He’s been to Rhode Island and Boston and played at several beaches and parks there. He’s stayed in 3 different hotels and met lots of new dogs and people of all shapes, sizes, colors, and abilities (dogs and people). We start every morning with our trail walks with dog friends where we work on calm greetings and lots of recall. He completed star puppy and is now in canine good citizen and will eventually test for TDI. He often goes into the office with me and will go into any store or restaurant that allows pups, even our bank! And always, people want to know what he is, and everyone wants to steal him! He had his first swim experience in a pool the other day, and loved it! He swam to Chesney and then just lounged in her arms then swam back to me on the steps and sat on the top step for a while. He’s going to try paddle boarding tomorrow and I’m sure he will be a natural like Wilson. His intelligence shows in so many ways! Quickness to learn new tasks and adjusting to new stimuli/situations are done with ease. He is the youngest dog in his training class and is often the one to demo in class. Wilson does rally course so Hamilton has learned several of those commands simply by emulating Wilson when we practice at home. He’s not to be outdone by big brother. He has mastered sit, stand, down, spin/turn and loose lead walking. He’s working on wait/stay, leave/drop, and calm greeting, recall is excellent, and ongoing. He’s potty trained, and is now maneuvering stairs up and down with ease. He rides calmly in the car for any duration. He has zero reaction to fireworks and thunder. He is starting to lose teeth. Hes chewing on lots of good toys and ice cubes to help in this process. He’s so tall and fluffy! He looks so funny when he’s wet because he’s so skinny under all that fluff! He weighs 17.5 lbs as of Monday. Our training plan is to continue with canine good citizen through completion and probably on to advanced obedience and/or rally. He won’t be able to test for therapy dog until he is one. Volleyball season starts in less than 3 weeks, so he will meet the team soon and he and Wilson will continue to bring smiles and joy to stressed coaches and players! (And overly anxious parents in the stands) he is such a snuggler and gives the best kisses! He is always so happy and full of bounce, everyone who meets him loves him! People and dogs alike! We could not be happier that he is ours!!" - Jenn

Dawson

"Dawson has become the love of our lives. We just completed a long trip to Mexico and Louisiana before returning home to California - WITH him! He completed 8 flights in all, and he acclimated just beautifully. He sat quietly in the soft carrier on the airplane with no noise at my feet. He was curious and alert at each destination, and had no behavioral disruption with any of the changes!! So I would say - he is a well adjusted puppy and super connected to all 3 of us (especially me); he comes on command; he will sit on command for even any stranger. He is socialized at home with our nanny's 2 older dogs (where he goes 4 hours/day). In Mexico, he played 2 times a week with my best friend's boxer. He loves walks and playing in the ocean/river/lakes. I can now walk him on leash and off leash with really great success. He is my little shadow. He does not have any fears or weird nervousness. He is crate trained but also sleeps at night with any of us. He wakes up at 6:30-7:00 each morning and runs outside with my son to use the bathroom." -Laura

Lola

"Lola is 4 months old but it seems like she's always been with me and Mattie. She's unfailingly sweet, beautiful, and smart. Her favorite activity is going to daycare where she can play for several hours with all kinds of other dogs. Her second favorite activity is getting a belly rub, and she has mastered the art of suckering everyone to do it. Lola has proven to be exactly what I had hoped. And Mattie is so excited to have her company! I couldn't have asked for a better girl to add to my family." - Krys

Ollie

"Ollie is doing great!! He graduated from the puppy basic course 2 weeks ago and we are 2 weeks into the intermediate course. I attached his graduation picture and 2 videos from yesterday showing off how smart he is. He doesn't like to do tricks for praise or toys. He seems to be very food/treat driven. We seem to have potty training down and he is continuing to lose his baby teeth. We are very happy about that and I think our other 2 dogs are as well. Ollie is a very happy puppy. He likes all people and dogs . So far the only thing he doesn't like is his leash but that continues to improve as well. Overall we are all very happy with family. I think we were meant to be his parents, we love him so much!"

Lucy

Lucy’s dramatic copper markings and blue eyes turn heads wherever we go. She’s so friendly, too. Her personality is just as beautiful as she is. We love that she’s both fun and cuddly. Lucy is eager to learn and has known “sit”, “eyes”, “lay down”, “rollover”, and “stay” since she was twelve weeks old. By the time she was 15 weeks, she would sit at the door while I opened it and wouldn’t cross the threshold until I said, “Okay!” Now, I can place her breakfast in front of her, tell her “leave it,” and she won’t go to her dish until I release her. And her classes for basic training don’t start for another week.

Argos

Argos is doing great! He’s such a wonderful puppy. He’s fitting in perfectly. The love and changes he has brought to our lives is indescribable with each passing day. We are all adapting wonderfully. He’s simply awesome!!!

Ollie

"Ollie is a great pup and we adore him. We were on a hike here and he was having a ball. Not so much when we got home and I had to comb about a hundred burrs out of his fur, but amazingly, he was even patient and wonderful for that." - Beth

Bhakti

"Happy Fourth of July from Bhakti!! He is 5.5 months and 38 pounds. He’s doing great! I think he is starting his rebellious teenage stage."

Luke

"We want to thank you guys for preparing us so well for this experience. We were a little nervous as we have a lot going on with 5 kids and now puppy and weren't sure if we had what it takes to shape an awesome aussiedoodle but with your guys help, the process is going better than expected. Luke is such an amazingly sweet little guy and we couldn't be happier. He seems to be adjusting to us very well and there is very little to no whining and crying, which I anticipated hearing more of due to separation anxiety." Luke is a red merle male aussiedoodle. He has a perfect white collar and a big white chest. He has the cutest dark brown tail with a white tip. He's perfect! We think he will look like Finley as he gets older. Congratulations to Katie and Brad in Missouri.
