Above dogs are not from Open Range. They are just to give an idea of what we are working towards with our program.
Mini – Aussiedoodle Information
Aussiedoodles have a moderate to high activity level. They need a good walk or active playtime each day, and they are athletic enough to participate in such dog sports as agility, flyball, obedience and rally. They can also be excellent therapy dogs.
Both of the breeds used to create Aussiedoodles are considered to be canine Einsteins. It’s to your benefit to give the Aussiedoodle a job that will keep him busy, busy, busy. Teach him to find and bring you things, pull your gardening equipment around the yard, or anything else you can think of. Keeping him occupied will ensure that he doesn’t go off and find his own (likely destructive) entertainment. But if you begin socialization and training early and use positive reinforcement techniques such as praise, play and food rewards, you will be rewarded with a wonderful companion.
Poodles have a reputation for being hypoallergenic, meaning that they can be tolerated by people who have allergies to dogs. Because they have the Poodle in their heritage, Aussiedoodles are also sometimes promoted as being hypoallergenic. But allergies are caused not by a particular dog coat type but by dander, the dead skin cells that are shed by all dogs. Aussiedoodles are less likely to be hypoallergenic due to the Australian Shepherd’s higher dander and more people are allergic to a shedding dog.
At Open Range we are so excited to begin this adventure of Aussiedoodle’s. We are beginning our program with the same high standards and testing that we do with our Sheepadoodle’s. The Aussiedoodle’s will also be Mini. This means we are expecting our dogs to grow anywhere from 35-50lbs depending on the parents. Please note that the pictures to the left side are not of Open Range Puppies. We are showing examples of what this breed look like to be sure you all understand what we are aiming for.
