Sheltidoodle Puppies for Sale in Nevada, NV
The Sheltidoodle is a hybrid mix between the Shetland Sheepdog and the Poodle, and usually carries over some of the best characteristics from their parents. They’re highly affectionate, highly intelligent, and tend to love the outdoors. These dogs have an abundance of energy, and early socialization and obedience training is strongly recommended to have a manageable and obedient dog.
With the intelligence of the Poodle and the energy and loyalty of the Sheltie, the Sheltidoodle is a great all-around companion and working dog. Also known as a Sheltipoo or Sheltipoodle, this breed is becoming very popular due to its mild manners and hypoallergenic coat. Standing around 14-19 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 40-50 pounds, the Sheltidoodle's size can fluctuate depending on which type of poodle was used during breeding.
Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Sheltidoodle was originally bred as a companion dog for those who are allergic to animals. The Sheltidoodle was also meant to be a medium breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Shetland Sheepdog or Poodle, both of which can be prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding.
Sheltidoodles are highly affectionate and very loving dogs. They are incredibly loyal to their families and want to protect them without being overly aggressive about it. They make great watchdogs without being too serious and aloof toward new people.
Due to their abundance of energy, early socialization and obedience training is strongly recommended to keep your Sheltidoodle in line. Luckily, the intelligence from the Poodle side makes them easily trainable.
