Aussiedoodles

They are very intelligent and love to learn new things. They are fast learners and extremely patient. Training should be done with patience, love, care, reward and firmness. Hard and harsh methods should be avoided.  Every puppy will receive a "clicker" for training and initially trained with the clicker at about 5 weeks of age.

The Aussiedoodle can excel at dog sports such as agility, obedience, flyball, dock jumping, tracking, rally, lure coursing and herding.

AKC (The American Kennel Club) is now allowing mixed breed dogs that have been registered through their Canine Partners Program to compete in obedience, agility, and rally competitions. 

Aussiedoodle Size

The Aussiedoodle is a cross between an Australian Shepherd and a Poodle, usually a Standard or Miniature Poodle. He is intelligent, friendly and affectionate. Depending on the size of the Poodle used in the cross, an Aussiedoodle’s weight can range from 25 to 70 pounds. Due to the size of the parents, our Aussiedoodles are typically smaller than your average sized Standard Doodle. Keep in mind that males are almost always larger than females. Our Aussiedoodles can range from 22-60 pounds.

Supplies For Home

1. A crate- preferable to have one that is a life stage:  https://www.amazon.com/MidWest-Stages-Folding-Metal-Crate

2. Chew bones that will not splinter- rubber ones that are teething toys or/and antler bones: Example

3. A high-quality soft treat- I recommend Nutri Source (grain-free) chicken treats and the puppy Nutri Source (grain-free) food:  Food 

For more information about food: FAQ page

4. The wormer I use is called Sentinel: This is not just any kind of wormer it kills every worm plus heartworm so you don't have to conduct the heartworm test for your puppy (which is expensive)- This medicine though your must by from your vet and must be given every month to keep the dog free from fleas and worms and parasites for their lifetime:  More information here:    You can gain a rebate for this item here- https://www.sentinelpet.com/rebate  Earn up to a $25 rebate on SENTINEL® Brand Products. Get your rebate now.

5.  Make your vet appointment the first week you get your puppy home to have a health check. Then another appointment for the puppy at 

12 -14 weeks and then 16-18 weeks for shots.  I immunize at 8 weeks with a 5- way booster. I don't immunize any earlier as it is not recommended from my vet whom I trust completely.

 

6. A nice collar and leash:  To start training (I send them home with a collar but this won't last too long- so buy a medium-size one that will last them their early adult years)  The leash will help with potty training so you can have them with you inside and outside as they go potty for praise purposes. That way you don't let them run all through your house too early. They need many boundaries at first when you are potty training!  So a leash does help with that.

 

 

Aussiedoodle Genetic Test

Genetic Testing is extremely important to conduct in any Aussiedoodle. Genetic Testing is done by Animal Genetics  https://www.animalgenetics.us/ 

All Breeding dogs should be tested prior to breeding. 

List of test conducted-

DM-  Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) is a progressive neurological disorder that affects the spinal cord of dogs. Dogs that have inherited two defective copies will experience a breakdown of the cells responsible for sending and receiving signals from the brain, resulting in neurological symptoms.

MDR1- Multi-Drug Resistance Gene, (MDR) codes for a protein that is responsible for protecting the brain by transporting potentially harmful chemicals away from the brain. In certain breeds, a mutation occurs in the MDR1 gene that causes sensitivity to Ivermectin, Loperamide, and a number of other drugs.

NEwS- Neonatal Encephalopathy with Seizures (NEWS) in standard poodles. This fatal disease affects the brain of newborn puppies, causing weakness and seizures and ultimately death within a few weeks of birth.  Neonatal encephalopathy is recessive — both parents must possess the gene mutation in order to produce offspring affected by the disease.  Dogs with one copy of this gene do not show symptoms, but are carriers and can pass the gene to their offspring.

PRA-prcd- Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) refers to a group of diseases that cause the retina of the eye to degenerate slowly over time. The result is declining vision and eventual blindness.

vWD1- Von Willebrand disease type 1 (vWD1) is a bleeding disorder of variable severity that results from a quantitative or qualitative defect in von Willebrand factor (vWF)

CMR1- Canine multifocal retinopathy (CMR) is a hereditary eye disease. There is a specific form of canine multifocal retinopathy called CMR1. This disease is caused by C73T mutation in exon 2 of VMD2 gene.

HSF4- Hereditary cataract. A mutation of the HSF4 gene is linked to a form of Hereditary Cataracts in Australian Shepherds.

Goldendoodle Genetic Test

Genetic Testing is extremely important to conduct in any Goldendoodle. Genetic Testing is done by Animal Genetics  https://www.animalgenetics.us/ 

All Breeding dogs should be tested prior to breeding. 

List of test conducted-

DM-  Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) is a progressive neurological disorder that affects the spinal cord of dogs. Dogs that have inherited two defective copies will experience a breakdown of the cells responsible for sending and receiving signals from the brain, resulting in neurological symptoms.

GRPRA1- Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) is a category of genetic mutations that cause vision loss and blindness.

GRPRA2-Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) is a category of genetic mutations that cause vision loss and blindness. 

Ich-GR-Ichthyosis is an autosomal recessive genetic mutation that affects the skin of Golden Retrievers.

MD- GRMD is a mutation of the dystrophin gene that causes a deficiency of dystrophin proteins in Golden Retrievers. The lack of dystrophin proteins leads to the progressive degeneration of skeletal and cardiac muscles.

NCL-GR-Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis is a progressive degenerative disease of the central nervous system.

NEwS- Neonatal Encephalopathy with Seizures (NEWS) in standard poodles. This fatal disease affects the brain of newborn puppies, causing weakness and seizures and ultimately death within a few weeks of birth.  Neonatal encephalopathy is recessive — both parents must possess the gene mutation in order to produce offspring affected by the disease.  Dogs with one copy of this gene do not show symptoms, but are carriers and can pass the gene to their offspring.
