NO WORRIES, with our experience, we help the choosing process to fit your family! All of our Sheepadoodle puppies are tested by a third party trainer before we allow families to pick their puppy.

With the vet’s approval, the puppies will be released to their new homes at 8 weeks of age. Our Sheepadoodles will be held to 8 weeks of age at breeder’s discretion. If you choose to leave the puppy longer than the Pickup date set, a charge of $175 a week is applied. NO EXCEPTION!

Do You Ship Puppies?


We do not ship puppies. We do deliver! We have 2 flight nannies we work with. Our flight nannies fly in with your sheepadoodle puppy in cabin to your nearest airport. This is $400-$500 depending on what flight they can get. 

How do you groom a Sheepadoodle?


Sheepadoodles have straight to curly hair. Regular daily grooming is highly recommended. Professional Grooming can be done approximately every 2-3 months! For light color doodles Bio-Groom Extra Whitening Shampoo is highly recommended! For Detangler a cream rinse is recommended! Remove hair buildup in ears routinely to prevent ear infections! Provide Oral hygiene every week! Get your Sheepadoodle used to being brushed. While hanging out with the family brush your puppy regularly. 

What should a Sheepadoodle eat?


Our dogs are fed Adult nutrisource. When puppies begin to eat solid foods, we use large breed puppy food soaked in all natural goats milk. Once they are able to chew solids, they will be fed solid morsels. Puppies begin eating food around 3 weeks old, and are usually weened by 7 Weeks old.

Sheepadoodles should not leave littermates until they are 8 weeks old.

Are Sheepadoodles easy to train?


The Sheepadoodle is a highly intelligent dog that quickly obeys commands and is eager to please. As a result, training will come fairly easily. Because he can be a bit brusque with other dogs, his socialization and obedience training should begin at an early age. As with any breed, a consistent, rewards based approach that includes verbal praise and treats is the best approach.

What is the Sheepadoodle Temperament like?


The gentle Sheepadoodle’s affectionate, playful personality makes him an ideal family pet. He is highly intelligent so early training will help tame his sometimes boisterous energy. This loyal pooch loves to be part of a family and while this makes him a wonderful companion dog, he doesn’t do well when left for long periods of time so a stay-at-home family member or regular dog walker would make the ideal home environment for him.

Sheepadoodle Information

What are the exercise requirements for a Sheepadoodle?


The Sheepadoodle is a big boy who will need structured exercise routines and plenty of active play to keep him physically fit and mentally stimulated. He does have a tendency to get heavy in his older years so developing a regular routine early on will help prevent the joint issues that can come from obesity. These dogs love swimming and socializing so taking him to a dog park, lake or accessible river would be a great addition to your exercise regimen.

How big are Sheepadoodles full grown?


The size of your sheepadoodle will be determined by their parents and linage. Standard Sheepadoodles are generally 40-60 pounds. Mini Sheepadoodles are generally 15-30 pounds and Tiny Sheepadoodles are 5-20 pounds. 

Are Sheepadoodles good guard dogs?


Sheepadoodles can be good guard dogs. They will alert you to strangers coming into your home. They are very loyal and will protect their family. 

Are Sheepadoodles good family dogs?


Provided members of your family are often home and your Sheepadoodle isn’t left for long periods throughout the day, you’ll hopefully encounter no major issues if you train and socialize them well.

As well as picking a puppy from well tempered parents.

These dogs are generally good around kids and as such, make fantastic family pets.

The only thing worth bearing in mind is that there is a small chance that the instincts inherited from their sheepdog parents may lead them to want to herd a little.

This herding is only natural and shouldn’t cause any real issues.

It can mostly be trained out of the dog’s behavior, so don’t be hugely upset if your Sheepadoodle does feel a slight urge to round up and guide people.

But this can be a reason to wait until your children are a little older before bringing home your dog

What is a Sheepadoodle?


What Big, fluffy and lovable, a Sheepadoodle really is an incredible-looking dog. A mixture between a Poodle and an Old English Sheepdog, these beautifully blended pooches really appear to be the best of both worlds.

Fun loving and friendly, this crossbreed is intended to have the active nature and curly hair of a Poodle and the smarts and energy of a Sheepdog.

Of course with a mix we can’t know for certain whether they will be a blend or more like one parent than the other, but we’ll look at this in more detail a little later.

What we do know is the new breed mix has attracted a certain level of fame recently after Olympic skater and former Dancing with the Stars winner Meryl Davis and her partner, the Russian figure skater Fedor Andreev, showed off their Sheepadoodle to the world.

But while celebrity endorsements like this will always boost a breed’s profile, the Sheepadoodle’s real selling point is just how amazing it looks.

Is a Sheepadoodle the Right Dog For Me?


Sheepadoodles are rapidly increasing in popularity. And we can see why.

When well bred and well socialized they’re good with people, gentle and love exercise.

Perhaps those dog lovers than need tiny pet pooches or are worried that they are out of the house too much might need to keep looking, however.

If you are committed to training, socializing and picking the right pup from the right breeder then you are off to a good start.

Best suited to homes where someone is around for much of the day, the Sheepadoodle can make a lovely pet in the right home.
