Aussiedoodle – The Complete Guide

Rachel Poli Author
Jul 3 ·

The Aussiedoodle, also known as the Aussie Poo or Aussie Poodle, is an intelligent mixed breed that absolutely loves people. The Aussiedooble is an Australian Shepherd Poodle mix, making it one of the smartest mixed breeds.

Both the Australian Shepherd and Poodle are highly intelligent dog breeds, and the Aussiedoodle inherits that trait. As a result, they’ll make a fun addition to any household. 


The Aussiedoodle will inherit genes from both parents, but it won’t always be split evenly. So your hybrid may look more like an Australian Shepherd than a Poodle or vice versa. However, they typically have floppy ears, and their tails can either be slightly curved and long or short and docked.

The coat will depend on their pet parent as well. This mixed dog breed can have wavy, curly, or straight fur in various coat colors.

The size of your Aussiedoodle will vary greatly depending on the size of their pet parents. For example, your doggo’s Poodle parent maybe a toy, miniature, or standard. In addition, Australian Shepherds also come in miniature. On average, Aussiedoodles can grow to be about 10 to 15 inches tall and weigh between 25 and 70 pounds. It will be difficult to tell when they’re fully grown, but their growth may slow down at about six months of age.


Aussiedoodles will make a great addition to any home. They’re excellent family dogs who are silly and playful. They enjoy a fun game of keep-away or tug-of-war and love jumping. So, a have a tall fenced-in yard is a good idea. 

This smart breed is eager to please; thus, they’re easy to train. They’re also careful with young children, so you can bring this pooch home no matter what your family dynamic is like. They’ll enjoy sleeping in bed with you and are absolute cuddle bugs.

On the other hand, they enjoy being around their loved ones so much that they’re prone to separation anxiety. Aussiedoodles will want to be around you all the time, so staying home alone for long periods of time won’t fly. Otherwise, your pooch may become frustrated and become a little destructive while you’re gone.


Caring for your Aussiedoodle

With proper care and regular check-ups at the veterinarian, your Aussiedoodle has an average lifespan of 10-12 years.


This mixed dog breed has minimal shedding, so some people believe it to be hypoallergenic. However, both its parent breeds shed, so it won’t be guaranteed that your Aussiedoodle will be hypoallergenic.

When it comes to caring for your hybrid’s coat, they’re not low maintenance. You can expect to brush your pooch’s coat at least every other day. If it’s shedding season, then you’ll want to brush it every day to keep shedding to a minimum.

Bringing your doggo to a professional groomer once every two to three months is a good idea as well. This will keep their coat and skin clean regularly and leave you with minimal work when grooming at home.



On average, Aussiedoodles should have about two to three cups of high-quality kibble per day. However, they are prone to weight gain, so you’ll need to watch their calorie intake and keep the treats to a minimum.

As always, be sure to consult with your veterinarian to work on a meal plan for your pup together. 


Aussiedoodles have high energy levels. Therefore, 60 to 90 minutes of exercise per day will be ideal. While they’ll enjoy a nice walk, they’ll need real activity. This includes swimming, running, chasing, and other forms of physical and mental stimulation. 

This mixed breed is too smart for its own good, so giving them jobs to do, even if it’s pretending, is a great way to keep them fit and stimulated.

Health problems

Your furry friend should visit the vet at least once a year for regular check-ups. This hybrid is prone to a few common health issues. Some of these health concerns to consider are hip dysplasia, retinal atrophy, cataracts, and ivermectin sensitivity.


Where to find an Aussiedoodle

If you think you want to bring this pooch home, a great place to start looking is a rescue or shelter. This is a great opportunity to save a pup that is looking for a forever home.

Alternatively, you can buy an Aussiedoodle from a reputable breeder. A good dog breeder will allow you to meet them, the puppies, and the pet parents. They’ll know the parent breeds, history, health concerns, and know a lot about the crossbreed.

How much does an Aussiedoodle cost?

Depending on where you buy an Aussiedoodle, their age, and their availability, you can expect to pay at least $800 and up for this crossbreed. 


Should you bring home an Aussiedoodle?

No matter who lives at your house, if you’re an active family and can be home with your Aussiedoodle, then this may be a great hybrid to bring home.

These dogs are smart, loyal, and love to have fun. There will never be a dull moment with an Aussiedoodle around.
