A mix between a Poodle and a Australian Shepherd
Aussiedoodle and Mini Aussiedoodle Breed
Mini Aussiedoodle (mini Aussiepoo) puppies are a mix of a mini Poodle and a mini Australian Shepherd. Standard Aussiedoodle puppies cross a standard Poodle with a standard sized Aussie. Mini Aussiedoodle and standard Aussiedoodle pups are incredibly smart, loyal and very loving. Also known as an Aussiepoo, they are sometimes called Einstein dogs (for their smarts) and Velcro dogs (for their loyalty). Their coats tend to have a beautiful color variety with outstanding texture, curl, and thickness.
Affectionate and Social
Aussiedoodles are known for their loving and affectionate nature. They crave attention and make excellent family pets. This breed loves to be around people and forms strong bonds with their owners. They are also social dogs, making them great companions for other pets in the household.
Intelligent and Trainable
Both Australian Shepherds and Poodles are highly intelligent breeds, so it’s no surprise that Aussiedoodles inherit this trait. They are quick learners and respond well to positive reinforcement training methods. This makes them an ideal breed for first-time dog owners or those looking for a trainable companion.
Energetic and Active
Aussiedoodles have a lot of energy and need regular exercise to stay happy and healthy. A daily walk or run is essential for this breed, and they also excel in activities like agility, flyball, and obedience training. Their high energy levels make them an ideal choice for active families or individuals.
One of the most attractive traits of Aussiedoodles is their hypoallergenic coat. As a cross between a Poodle and an Australian Shepherd, they inherit the low-shedding coat from their Poodle parent, making them a great option for those with allergies. However, regular grooming is still necessary to keep their coat healthy and tangle-free.
Aussiedoodles have a natural instinct to protect their loved ones. This trait comes from their Australian Shepherd heritage and makes them excellent watchdogs. They are alert and will bark to alert their owners of any potential danger. This makes them a great choice for those looking for a loyal and protective companion.
In conclusion, Aussiedoodles are a wonderful mix of intelligence, energy, affection, and loyalty. They make excellent family pets and thrive in an active household where they can receive plenty of love and attention. With proper training, grooming, and exercise, Aussiedoodles can make a fantastic addition to any family. So if you’re considering adding an Aussiedoodle to your family, be prepared for lots of love and fun times ahead! Happy dog parenting!
Please Note: Aussiedoodle puppies are considered to be high-energy dogs and need regular daily exercise to help channel that energy constructively. They need lots of room to run and play daily. An Aussiedoodle is not best suited for small apartment settings and may be too active for households with young children (who may feel overwhelmed) or older pet parents who are not able to give them the activity level needed. With good consistent training and the right environment, this breed will become an excellent member of the family.

Common Questions About Aussiedoodles
An Aussiedoodle (aka Aussiepoo) is a mix between a Poodle (standard or mini/toy Poodle) and a purebred Australian Shepherd.
Aussiedoodles are known for their gorgeous thick coats in beautiful striking color combinations. Since Aussiedoodles inherit some of their Australian Shepherd parent’s wirier coat, they do not tend to be as hypoallergenic as most of the other Doodle breeds and therefore may shed a little. That said, they certainly will shed much less than their full-breed parent! If you’re looking for an Aussiedoodle that will shed the least, choose the curliest pup in the litter. Typically, the curlier the coat, the less shedding that pup will experience as an adult.
Generally, a Toy or Petite Mini Aussiedoodle tends to grow to be between 5-24 pounds, while a Traditional Mini Aussiedoodle tends to grow to be in the 25-40 pound range. Since each pup is a beautiful and unique blend of their genetics, these ranges are simply estimates and not guarantees.
Medium Aussiedoodles can grow to be between 41-55 pounds. Since each pup is a beautiful and unique blend of their genetics, this range is simply an estimate and not guarantee.
