You sell a ton of puppies. Are you a puppy mill?

We’re not a puppy farm. EVERY one of our mamas and daddies is a family pet and lives in their forever home. AwesomeDoodle puppies are raised in our homes by loving families just like yours, exposed to the sounds of the TV, vacuum, blender, washing machine, etc. We start socializing your puppy, we start the crate training process, and we start the potty training routine. Every puppy goes home knowing how to sit and wait for treats. Click here to see how we raise our puppies. 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 [Read More]

Can I visit AwesomeDoodle?

Want to visit AwesomeDoodle? We don't send a puppy home with just anyone, so we love to meet our future puppy owners and get to know them, and what kind of life they will provide for the puppy we raised. You've probably had someone tell you, "You better visit that breeder before you buy a puppy from them, so you can see if they keep their kennels clean and how they treat their dogs!". And that's absolutely true, if you're buying a puppy from a traditional breeder. The majority of breeders, especially AKC breeders, raise their puppies in a kennel-like environment. It would be a good idea to visit them, so you can see how and where their puppies are raised. However, most breeders won't allow you to visit. Let's face it, 7 week old puppies are pooping machines, and it is extremely difficult to keep a kennel clean and [Read More]

Can I get a puppy for Christmas (or your holiday of choice)?

AwesomeDoodle makes it special: If you're getting a puppy for your family for Christmas, but your puppy isn't ready to go home until AFTER Christmas, AwesomeDoodle will make a special video JUST for your family, introducing your puppy on video and telling you congratulations. We will even say your kid's names in the video, if you want us to. Surprise puppies: We highly discourage "surprising" your family with a puppy for Christmas, birthdays, etc. While we may want to surprise our kids with a puppy on Christmas, YOU are the one who will be taking care of it. So make sure you are getting a dog because YOU want one, not because your kids want one. Timing: We often have puppies ready to go home in December, but we cannot control when mom has her puppies. If you want to surprise your family with a puppy for Christmas, you may [Read More]

Colors of AussieDoodles

We raise all sizes of AussieDoodle Puppies. We have lots of different sizes, from Toy all the way to standard size. The majority of our puppies are in the “mini” size, so please note that Toy or Standard sizes may be a little longer wait time. While some breeders misquote the expected size of their puppies, we estimate the full grown size of your puppy, based on the weights of mom and dad. You’ll hear lots of different opinions on sizing, and while every dog is an individual, here is our general guideline for our dogs, based on our experience. We raise all Colors of AussieDoodle Puppies. Why get a golden doodle when you can get a colorful AussieDoodle? Below are the colors we offer and typical wait times. For specific sizes or genders, the wait time could be a little longer. Click here to see [Read More]

How to choose an AussieDoodle breeder

Barbara from "DreamyDoodles" with one of her girls. Barbara is the "Queen" of doodles, and has a passion for making the prettiest, most healthy, puppies you can find. I HIGHLY recommend her puppies. 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 [Read More]

About the 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 AwesomeDoodles. AwesomeDoodles are known to be "happy go lucky" dogs who can do anything. They are Jogging partners, surf-boarders, hikers, doggie disc stars, swimmers, fetchers, trick [Read More]

Where are you located?

AwesomeDoodle is a growing group of families across the USA, raising AussieDoodle puppies to the same strict standards. AwesomeDoodle is not a puppy broker, and we're not a puppy farm. In fact, we don't even like the term "breeder". Anyone can "breed" two dogs together. It's the RAISING part that makes our dogs different. Every litter is raised with love in the home by families just like yours. We often have "breeders" ask us if they can join our group, but in most cases the answer is NO. "Dog breeders" simply can't grasp the concept of how we raise our puppies. Old habits are hard to break. If any of our group chooses to not follow our strict policies, they are booted off the island. You are welcome to pick a puppy from any of our families. Click here to see our families who raise AussieDoodles and their locations. [Read More]

AussieDoodles vs other *Doodles

If you're already researching 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 [Read More]

Puppy Pick Process

The AwesomeDoodle Pick List. How does it work? When you sign up to get your new AussieDoodle Puppy, you'll go on our master waiting list. What kind of puppy do you want? What size and color do you want? Do you want a puppy from a certain mama? You don't need to answer these questions right away. However, if you have "must have" criteria, let us know. For example, if you tell us you ONLY want a dog under 25lbs, we won't contact you with any puppies above that weight range. From what location will you get a puppy? We have loving families, just like yours, raising puppies all over the USA. You can pick a puppy from ANY family. The majority of our puppies go home on airplanes, riding under the seat (we don't "cargo ship" puppies). So don't restrict your choice based on location. You should pick the [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: 1.   [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]
