A brief description of Aussiedoodles
An Aussiedoodle is a doodle-dog poodle-mix that is part Poodle and part Australian Shepherd (Aussie). Although Aussiedoodles are not currently as popular as Goldendoodles or Labradoodles, they are quickly grown in popularity. Aussiedoodles tend to have a beautiful color variety not available in Goldendoodles or Labradoodles. Simmilar to Goldendoodles, Aussiedoodles have absolutely beautiful coats (unlike Labradoodles). Aussies and Poodles have some of the most desirable coats in the dog world, so the mixture often results in an incredibly soft Aussiedoodle coat with outstanding texture, curl, and thickness.
Aussies have outstanding personalities and an incredible urge to please. One well-regarded breeder of Aussiedoodles, Goldendoodles, and Labradoodles said that her Aussiedoodles consistently make better guide dogs and therapy dogs than even the Goldendoodles and Labradoodles. Both Australian Shepherds and Poodles are legendary for their brains and desire to please. Mixing the two together results in a highly trainable dog.
Aussiedoodles have been called “the Einstein dog.” They also are great at walking off leash. If you were walking with a pet doodle in crowd, a Labradoodle would likely follow you from a little distance. A Goldendoodle might get lost in the crowd licking every stranger and wagging his tail ferociously. An Aussiedoodle would likely stay right with you (there’s a good reason Aussies are known as “velcro dogs”), unless he saw some cats or small animals to herd.
Aussiedoodles are undoubtedly the most loyal of all the Doodle varieties. Your pet Aussiedoodle would follow you to the ends of the earth.
