We are excited to feature a new pooch, the Aussiedoodle! This is one cool cross breed. Not only are they awesome looking, they are pretty smart!
What is an Aussiedoodle?
It is an Australian Shepherd Poodle mix.
This dog has both the outside and inside traits of both the Aussie and the Poodle. We have some cool info about this dog. Along the way, be sure enjoy some awesome pics of some Aussiedoodle puppies. As well as some full grown Aussiedoodle pictures!
Aussiedoodle Dog 101
While most people refer this hybrid as the Aussiedoodle, it is also called a couple of different names.
- Australian Poodle
- Ozzy Doodle
I like them all, but there is something hard rock about Ozzy Doodle.
While most of these pooches have a distinct look, they do have a wide range of traits! You never know what you’re going to end up with. However, it will be limited by the extremes of the two breeds.
So, you can get one trait from a Poodle and another from an Aussie. In addition, you can get a mix of both breeds on one trait.
The Building Blocks
The parents of this x-breed are two pretty solid dog breeds. Both of these breeds have a wide variety of traits and standards. This can create an overwhelming number of Ozzy doodle possibilities.
I have a feeling that dog doesn’t like my opinion.
The following is a short overview of the DNA involved in this pooch.
The Australian Shepherd
They are not even from Australia, but the US. These are the original cowboy dogs of the west. This herding dog has a strong work ethic and needs a job. They are highly instinctual and love to herd. I love this pooch! So much we have even more pictures of Aussies!
The Poodle is more than the foo foo pooch you see on TV. This Dog actually started out as a hunting dog. They have a strong work ethic and are very smart. They can learn a new command within 5 tries. They can also recall the command within 95% of the time.
What are the three sizes of an Aussiedoodle?
The sizes of these dogs depend on the DNA. The Aussie DNA is pretty straight forward. An Aussie can weigh between 35 and 70 pounds. At the shoulder their height is 18-23 inches.
The Poodle is another matter. There are 3 different sizes of Poodle, Toy, Mini and Standard.
The Standard Poodles weigh 45 to 70 pounds. Their height is 15 to 24 inches.
The Mini Poodle weighs 11 to 17 pounds. Their height is 11 to 15 inches.
The Toy Poodle weighs under 10 pounds. Their height is under 10 inches
Due to genetics, the Poodle size dictates the size of the Aussiepoo. For this reason, the 3 sizes of the Aussiepoo are Standard, Mini and Toy.

What is the weight of a full grown Aussiedoodle?
An Aussiedoodle full grown will be between 6 and 70 pounds. The reason for such a huge range is that Poodles have a big size range (4-70 pounds). The Aussie can weigh between 35 and 70 pounds.
- The Standard Aussiedoodle will be 35 to 70 pounds.
- A Mini Aussiedoodle full grown will be 10 to 35 pounds.
- The Toy Aussiepoo will be 6 to 10 pounds.
The coloring of this dog’s coat is cool.
How big do Aussiedoodles get?
These heights are from the ground to their shoulder.
- A Standard Aussiedoodle will be 18 to 23 inches.
- The Mini Aussiedoodle will be 12 to 18 inches.
- A Toy Aussiepoo will be under 12 inches.
What is a Moyen Aussiedoodle?
A Moyen is a different Poodle size in Europe . However, this size is not recognized in the US. This size, is bigger then a mini and on the lower end of the standard size. So a Moyen Aussiedoodle has a Moyen Poodle as a parent.
This pooch is a Moyen. You can see more on their gram account.
As you can see from these great images, they can be many different colors. Once again, their coat color is a product of the parents. The number of combos for each breed is huge. Then you add the combos based on genetics, the numbers are nuts.

Do Aussiedoodles shed?
Generally, this pooch sheds very little. However, it all depends on which genes the pup gets.
If the pooch gets a more Aussie coat it will shed more, but this is still minimal. It is suggested that brushing is done every other day.
If the pup’s coat is more towards the Poodle coat, then plan on grooming every 2 months. To reduce the tangles and the mats, it is recommended that they are brushed daily.
I love this name! So much, my lab is called Cali. Do you know what Cali means? Do you know what most dog names mean? If not, you have to check out our girl dog names and meanings page.
What Coat Types do Aussiedoodle Puppies have?
There are two Aussiedoodle coat types. They get one from the Poodle, which is curly. The other one is from the Aussie. This coat is medium length, straight and wavy.
The following pictures show two pups with the same color, but two different coats.
If the pup has the curly hair, then expect more trips to the groomer.
Are Aussiedoodles hypoallergenic?
Dog allergens are produced from the dander rather than the coat. Most people believe that since Poodles are hypoallergenic then so are Aussiepoos.
The flaw in that belief, is that Poodles are not 100% hypoallergenic. However, Poodles have been shown to produce less allergic reactions.
Make sure that you don’t have any reactions before you bring home an Ozzy Doodle. See if you can hang out with the dog a couple of times and see if you have any reactions.
This little pup just got a nice bath! Don’t believe me, look at the next picture.
One good thing about a wet Ozzy Doodle, is that you can see their true size and face.
What is the Aussiedoodle lifespan?
The average Aussiedoodle life span is 10 to 12 years. Diet and exercise are both major factors to any dog’s lifespan. With both items always talk to your vet.
What is the average Aussiedoodle price?
The average price is around $950. However, the price can go up if the pedigree is good. Also, coat and eye color play a role in the cost.
Blue Merle Aussidoodle puppies with blue eyes cost the most.
This dog is energetic, fun-loving and super smart. Both breeds are smart and highly trainable. The Aussie is a working dog and loves to be engaged. The Intelligence of Dogs, places the Poodle as the 2nd smartest dog.
Those are some wicked eyes!
So, a smart puppy will most likely be the result. Since they are smart, they can become bored pretty quick. Which can mean destruction.
This little guy looks like a ball of personality.
Also, this pooch will need a lot of exercise. They have a ton of energy that needs to be burned. A smart dog with a lot of energy that becomes bored can be scary. Not wild animal scary. But destroy everything in your house scary.
Are Aussiedoodles good family dogs?
In terms of family life, these dogs are great. They are loyal and love to play. They are non-aggressive to other dogs and people. They bond to the pack, and need to be included at all times. The real question should be, is your family good enough for an Ozzy Doodle?
A smiling dog is…up to something.
These puppy pictures are so cute. Warning! You might want one of these pups after looking at these pics. If you do, please do your research.
For a F1 litter, both parents should be registered with the AKC. You should also be able to see them. If you hear a bunch of excuses on why you can’t, walk away. It’s also a good idea, to see the rest of the litter and where they are kept.
I think it’s cool how his nose is brown. I also like the how the white on his chest looks like a bird.
