Hybrid dogs continue to become sought out by more people as they realize that breeding certain breeds of dogs with one another can produce litters that have a number of preferred characteristics from both parents. For example, the Aussiedoodle is a dog that's bred from an Australian shepherd and a poodle. Breeding these dogs together can produce puppies that have superior intelligence because Australian shepherds are some of the smartest dogs, yet poodles are also known to be smart as well. Plus, they will have a lot of energy from the Australian shepherd side and they tend to not shed due to the poodle side. If you are interested in learning more about Aussiedoodles, this article can educate you further on the breed.
While the physical appearance of any mixed-breed dog can be unpredictable, Aussiedoodles generally have wavy or curly coats. They can be black and tan, black, red, and white, blue merle, red merle, sable, parti, or solid colored. This is due to their ability to pick up the colors or color combinations of either parent. They can have short, medium, or long coats.
Poodles are considered to be moderately yappy dogs. However, Australian shepherds are considered to be relatively low-level barkers. Most Aussiedoodles tend to lean more toward the Australian shepherd's side when it comes to how much they bark. However, they will bark under certain circumstances, such as when they hear surprising noises, see someone approaching, when they are playing, or when they need something.
Both Australian shepherds and poodles are considered to be in the top ten list of smartest dog breeds. They both like to learn and to please their people which makes Aussiedoodles extremely easy and fun to train. They are also very athletic dogs that would do well in agility competitions. Both Australian shepherds and poodles are working dogs as well, so they have a natural born drive to perform.
Due to the energy level of both breeds, Aussiedoodles have energy and enthusiasm. They would make a great pet for anyone who wants a dog to take with them on walks or hikes, to play frisbee at the park, to play fetch with, or to run around the yard with the kids for hours. However, they can also be calm dogs that are happy to lie at your feet as long as you give them some exercise during the day. They are also known for having goofy and charismatic, fun-loving personalities.
