Important information before placing a deposit Before you place a deposit on one of our puppies, here are some important things for you to consider.
Please consider that a standard Aussiedoodle is a large dog that can mature up to 70 pounds. The last thing we want is for you to purchase a puppy from us, and then find out down the road that he/she has grown too big for your home!
Since an Aussiedoodle has little to no shedding, he/she will need to be groomed on a regular basis. Daily brushing is strongly encouraged to reduce mats in their fur. A visit to your groomer every 8 to 12 weeks is necessary as well.
Even though an Aussiedoodle sheds very little, we cannot guarantee that they will be hypoallergenic. If you have allergies to dogs, you need to do your own research on whether or not an Aussiedoodle is right for you.
Aussiedoodles are very smart, active dogs. Therefore, they will need lots of exercise. We know just how smart Australian shepherds can be. Sometimes it's like they're reading our minds! Mixed with the poodle, an Aussiedoodle is a genius breed of a dog. We would encourage you to give your dog jobs and teach him new tricks (regardless of whether you get a puppy from us or not!). Please be sure that you are prepared to give an Aussiedoodle the exercise, time and training they need.
When you get a dog, you need to ask yourself if you are at the right time in your life to get a puppy. Are you starting a business, moving, having a baby, going back to school? If this is the case, you should probably wait to add a puppy into your life. Be prepared to give your new puppy the attention it deserves. Getting a dog is a long term commitment, and the first few weeks and months of that time is crucial! Sometimes, just waiting a month or two can make a huge difference! If you want an Aussiedoodle, but you just don't feel like now is the right time, please don't hesitate to get on our waiting list for a future litter.
Please consider the personality you would like in a dog. Too many people look at a cute face, but pay no regard to what that dog's personality will be like. Asking a few questions about temperament and personality now, can save a lot of frustration down the road! That being said, please understand that we cannot guarantee a puppy's personality. We can give you an idea based on what we are seeing at the time, and often we get a pretty good feel by 3-8 weeks of age based on how they are responding and interacting with us and their litter mates. However, it is in no way a guarantee. We also feel strongly that training, socializing and proper interaction works wonderful on all personalities. Please be willing to invest time, effort and energy your puppy deserves to transform them into a wonderful lifetime friend!
