Aussiedoodles are incredibly smart and playful dogs. A cross between the Poodle and Australian Shepherd, Aussiedoodles are intelligent, loyal, and affectionate like their parent breeds. Aussies have tons of energy and love frequent exercise and playtime with the family. They can come in a wide range of sizes and colors depending on the qualities of their parents.
Aussiedoodles are a crossbreed of the Australian Shepherd and Poodle, which actually makes them one of the most diverse crossbreeds in the world. They can come in a wide range of coat colors and textures. Some may have a soft, scruffy, tricolor coat with different shades of white, beige, tan, merle, blue, gray, red, brown, chocolate, and black. Others can have fluffy curls with a solid color coat.
Aussiedoodles have a lot of energy and will need regular exercise to stay in tip-top shape. They’re also highly intelligent and are even referred to as the “Einstein dog” in some circles! You’ll want to give them plenty of mental stimulation and exercise to ensure they don’t engage in destructive behavior.
Aussies have a loving and somewhat goofy personality. They make for great companions for the whole family. Just make sure your children know how to play with them safely.
Aussiedoodles can come in a variety of sizes due to their poodle parents. Aussies that come from toy poodles can grow to 20 pounds in weight and up to 14 inches in height. Those with standard poodle lineages can grow to 75 pounds in weight and 25 inches in height.
The breed is usually quite healthy, enjoying an average lifespan of 10 to 14 years.
