Do your puppies go to the vet?

At AwesomeDoodle, we do what we do best, and that’s raising well rounded and affectionate puppies. But when it comes to medicine, we leave that up to the vet. While most breeders cook up their own concoction from farm stores like “Tractor supply” in order to save a few bucks, AwesomeDoodle lets the vet do what he does best. Q.

AussieDoodles vs other *Doodles

If you’re already researching Australian Shepherds, then you probably already know how loyal and smart they are. AussieDoodles are known as the “Einstein” of dog breeds. Why is that? Australian shepherds and poodles are some of the smartest dog breeds out there. Golden retrievers and Labradors are smart too, but what sets the AussieDoodle apart from LabraDoodles and GoldenGoodles, is the loyalty characteristic in the Aussie. Below are a few things to consider (these are simply my opinions), remember, 90% of your dog’s personality will come from the way you shape it’s behavior and socialize it. AussieDoodle highlights: *Typically able [Click to Read More]

Is an AussieDoodle right for me?

Our AussieDoodles are smart, happy go lucky dogs.  They love EVERYONE!  They are very low shedding, low allergenic dogs.  That said, the are NOT fit for every family.  We rarely send puppies home to homes where adults work out of the house, or families in apartments.  Aussiedoodles, especially ours, are incredibly smart dogs.  They are NOT HAPPY, sitting around for 8 hours, waiting for their master to come home.  They are too smart to sit there with nothing to do.  Just like a child, AussieDoodles can develop behavior problems, if they are not engaged in human interaction, and not exercised [Click to Read More]


Are AussieDoodles Hypoallergenic?

While no dogs are 100% Hypoallergenic, poodles are known to be one of the most tolerable dogs for people with allergies.  Short haired dogs are usually the worst, while long haired dogs are known to be better.  To date, no family has ever returned one of our F1 AussieDoodles due to allergies (or any reason). We have sent dozens of puppies home to families who report they have “mild allergies”, and they always report no reaction to our F1 AussieDoodles. That said, we could (no one could) not guarantee you won’t have an allergic reaction to one of our puppies. [Click to Read More]
