How to choose a 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, [...]


About the AussieDoodle

AussieDoodles are typically 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 [...]


Where can I find an Available AussieDoodle Puppy, now?

AwesomeDoodle rarely has AussieDoodle puppies "Available". Our puppies are not born homeless. If we do have one available, you will see it below, on our available puppy list.  Who wants to wait months for a new puppy?  Who wants to give a deposit and get on a wait list, for a dog they have not even seen yet?  At AwesomeDoodle, you're not locked in to any one litter; you can pick from any of our upcoming puppies. At AwesomeDoodle, your deposit is refundable, up until the time you pick your puppy. We would never want to pressure someone into getting a dog, if they change their mind. It's a big decision, and you should be 100% confident when your pick your puppy.


Where are you located?

AwesomeDoodle is a group of families who raise mini AussieDoodle Puppies in several locations all across the US. Our partners live in Searcy, AR, Atlanta, GA, Columbus, OH, Akron, OH, Dallas, TX, Tulsa, OK, Nashville, TN, and Ocala, FL. You are welcome to pick a puppy from any of the locations. We do NOT want you to feel like you must limit your choice of puppy based on location. We never know what mother nature might bring with each litter. As a result, limiting yourself to one location can significantly increase your wait time, especially if you're specific about color/size/gender. What if [...]


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 [...]


Picking a puppy: temperament vs. personality vs. behavior

What is the difference between AussieDoodle temperament, personality, and behavior? When do dogs start showing their personality? Below you will find definitions of each. You will also find information on how these three factors bleed into each other, as well as some tips on how you can shape the perfect dog. Temperament: "a person's or animal's nature, especially as it permanently affects their behavior." The temperament of your dog is controlled by it's genes. When I say, "poodles are very smart dogs," or "Australian Shepherds love to swim," these are descriptions of a dog's temperament. Keep in mind, this is not the "rule" [...]


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? [...]


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 [...]


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 [...]
