Why An Aussiedoodle?
MYTHS & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Aussiedoodles HATE being left alone.
TRUE! BUT, this is NOT specific to just Aussiedoodles are doodles. This goes for ALL dogs! This is why we repeatedly talk about the importance of teaching your puppy the skill of being alone right from the beginning. Puppies who do not learn and practice how to be alone when they're young are highly likely to develop separation anxiety.
Aussiedoodles have a tendency to easily pick up bad habits.
While any breed can vary on their behaviour and tendencies, they are known for their intelligence and trainability. Aussiedoodles are quick learners! Consistent training and socialization from an early age is a must to prevent bad habits and promote good behaviour in any dog, including Aussiedoodles! Remember that a dog's behaviour can be highly influenced by it's environment and the owner's consistency in training and reinforcement. Controlling the puppy's environment is key to setting them up for making good choices in the future.
Aussiedoodles are nippy puppies.
Like many other puppies, can be nippy during their early stages of development . Nipping and mouthing are common behaviours in puppies as they explore their environment and interact with people and objects. There are many techniques and tools that can be done to address this behaviour and train your puppy that it is not desired such as obedience training, chew toys, and socializations. Remember that nipping is typically a phase puppies grow out of with proper guidance and training.
Are Aussiedoodles hyper?
Aussiedoodles are a cross between Australian Shepherds and Poodles which are both known for their intelligence and high energy levels. Aussiedoodles can have varying energy levels and it can highly depend on their bloodlines. For example, working bloodlines for Australian Shepherds exhibit higher energy levels than the pet/show bloodlines. Regardless, all doodles require adequate exercise, socialization and mental engagement to ensure a well-balanced and happy dog.
How big do Aussiedoodles get?
There's no set answer as Aussiedoodles come in many colours, coat types and sizes. Each pairing could have a different result. Ask your breeder what the possible outcomes are. In our breeding program, you can find all the details about each planned pairing on our upcoming litters page.
Can Aussiedoodles be outside dogs?
No. Aussiedoodles are not well suited to being outside dogs for several reasons.
1. Social and Family Bonds: Dogs are social animals and thrive on companionship. Keeping them outside away from their human family can lead to loneliness, anxiety and behavioural problems,
2. Weather: Aussiedoodles have a relatively low tolerance for extreme weather conditions. They have a coat that can be sensitive to extreme heat or cold. Leaving them outside in harsh weather can be harmful.
Do Aussiedoodles have chicken allergies?
Like any other dog breed, Aussiedoodles can potentially have allergies to various things. Allergies can vary from one individual to another. Most if not all of our breeding dogs are regularly fed a chicken based kibble and we have not had any issues.
Are Aussiedoodles hypoallergenic?
While Aussiedoodles are generally considered hypoallergenic, the degree of hypoallergenicity can vary among Aussiedoodles depending on the specific genetic makeup. F1b Aussiedoodles are a popular choice for individuals with allergies as they tend to take on more of the poodle breed genetics and are therefore thought to be more hypoallergenic making it less likely to trigger allergies in some people. It's important to note that no dog breed is entirely hypoallergenic and individuals with severe allergies may still react to them. If you or someone in your household has allergies, we strongly recommend you spend time with an Aussiedoodle before bringing one into your home.
Why do Aussiedoodles have short tails?
An Aussiedoodle can have a short tail for two reasons:
1) It's been docked - the puppy's tail was docked by the breeder in the first few days of life.
2) The dog inherited the bobtail gene - Australian Shepherds naturally often carry the bobtail gene in their bloodlines causing the puppy to be born with a shorter tail.
In our breeding program, we will NEVER dock tails! If you ever see an Amadeus Aussiedoodle with a short tail, it is indeed because it has a bob tail.
Aussiedoodles BARK a lot.
FALSE! Aussiedoodles, like many other dog breeds, can vary in their barking tendencies. Generally, Aussiedoodles are not known to be excessive barkers, but individual behaviour can differ. Factors such as training, socialization, and the dog's environment can influence their barking habits. Proper training and socialization from a young age can help manage their barking tendencies and ensure they are well-behaved.
Aussiedoodles can be good service dogs.
Aussiedoodles have the potential of making good service dogs, but it depends on the individual dog's temperament, training, and the specific service they are intended for. Service dogs need to be highly trainable, obedient, and able to remain calm in various situations.
Aussiedoodles are often praised for their intelligence and willingness to please, which can be advantageous for service dog training. However, not all Aussiedoodles may have the temperament or characteristics needed for specific service needs.
A professional dog trainer that specializes in training service dogs can assess the dog's suitability and provide appropriate training and guidance to meet the specific service needs.
