Finding your perfect dog breed is a bit like finding the perfect house. One dog breed may be perfect for a friend of yours, but you may be suited to an entirely different breed. It's important to consider your lifestyle, your family's needs, and your preferences before you buy a puppy of a particular breed. Aussiedoodle puppies, in particular, are becoming really popular. But are they the right breed for you? Here are some signs an Aussiedoodle is a good choice for your family.
You have a large, fenced-in yard.
Aussiedoodles tend to get their energy levels from the Australian shepherd half of their breeding. In other words, they're energetic, and they really need to run. An Aussiedoodle puppy that does not have a place to run is likely to be overly energetic and naughty. So, if you have a large, fenced-in yard where the puppy can run, that's a sign you can meet the needs of an Aussiedoodle pup.
You have past experience training dogs.
Aussiedoodles don't tend to be mean or aggressive, and they're not overly challenging to train. However, they are not the easiest breed to train, either, so they're not the best choice for first-time dog owners. If you've successfully trained a puppy before, you're probably ready for an Aussiedoodle this time around.
You don't mind taking the dog to a groomer.
Aussiedoodles don't tend to be heavy shedders. However, they do tend to inherit the long, curly hair of their poodle parents, which means they need to visit the groomer for regular trims. If you prefer a low-maintenance dog that doesn't ever require a haircut, then an Aussiedoodle pup is probably not your best option. But if you can handle the time commitment and expense of seeing the groomer approximately every 8-12 weeks, this is a sign you'll be a good Aussiedoodle puppy parent.
You're not gone all day.
Aussiedoodles are pretty social dogs. Once they are adults, you should be able to get them used to being on their own for hours on end. However, especially when they are puppies, they really do best with a lot of human attention and socialization. If someone in your family works from home or if the people in your family have alternating work schedules so someone's usually home, this makes you a good Aussiedoodle family.
