The Standard Poodle was first bred in Europe as a retriever of water fowl. They are highly intelligent, quick to please and make great companions. Their non-shedding coat is thick and curly.
Standard Poodles also need a lot of exercise and are best suited to the country life, or to a family that loves the outdoors. They are usually between 45-60 lbs and can live to be 12 years old.
Aussiedoodles are a combination of Aussidoodle and a Poodle. F1b My Aussiedoodle is crossed with my Standard Poodle. They are incredibly smart, playful, and loyal. They need a lot of exercise and are best suited to homes with older children because of their natural herding instincts. They are expected not to shed. They will grow to weigh between 45 and 55 lbs.

Everyone loves a puppy but before you add a dog to your family you should consider if you are able to give him or her a happy healthy home for the next 10 to 15 years.
If you work full-time or travel, do you have a dog walker or someone home in the day to let the dog out? Doodles are active dogs, and need lots of excercise. Non-shedding dogs need regular grooming - approximately every 6-8 weeks. Some owners choose to learn to groom.
Your dog will need to be spayed or neutered, and will need regular veterinary care throughout its life. We recommend pet health insurance to cover unexpected veterinary bills.
It is important not to take the idea of getting a new puppy lightly, but should a new puppy be the right choice for your family, we know that our doodle puppies will bring you lots of love, joy and companionship for years to come.
