Aussiedoodle dogs really grow fast, which means they will attain 95% of their body weight at 12 months old. And at the age of two years, they will reach the last stage of adolescence. However, this also depends on the breed size of their parent dogs, Australian Shepherd and Poodle. The poodle comes in three sizes: Miniature, Standard, or Toy Poodle. Hence, full grown Aussie doodles are also available in these three sizes.

Here’s the table of sizes of full grown mini Aussie doodle:

MINIATURE 12– 19 inches at the shoulder 15 – 35 pounds
TINY 10 – 12 inches at the shoulder 6 – 12 pounds

Standard Aussiedoodle

A Standard Aussiedoodle has its full grown weight of between 45-70 pounds. Compared to other varieties, these dogs are a bit taller and bigger. They are 15 inches tall at the shoulder. As they’re big and tall, they also take more time to get mature. So, a Standard Aussiedoodle will reach its full-grown adult size between 12-16 months.

As these furry friends are big and tall, they also need more space to run, play and exercise. So, these canines are more suitable for families living in big houses with yards and more outdoor space.

Miniature Aussiedoodle

Miniature Aussiedoodles have a wide range when it comes to their full-grown weight. Typically, they can be anywhere between 15 and 45 pounds, depending on the size of the parents. Their height has a smaller range, measuring between 10 and 15 inches at the shoulder. With their larger size compared to the Toy Aussiedoodle, they’ll take a bit longer to reach their adult size. Miniature Aussiedoodles can take between 11-13 months to grow into this grown size.

Toy Aussiedoodle

Breeders cross Toy Poodles with Australian Shepherds to achieve the Toy Aussiedoodle. As you can guess from the name, this is the tiniest Aussiedoodle available. The Toy Aussiedoodle’s height at the shoulder tends to be around 10 inches.

You get a sense of how tiny this toy dog is when you know its weight. An adult Toy Aussiedoodle weighs only between 10 and 15 pounds. As the smallest Aussiedoodle, the Toy Aussiedoodle reaches its adult size earlier than the other varieties.

A Toy Aussiedoodle may be as large as it will be as early as seven months old, and some will take until 11 months to become their adult size.

How To Choose an Aussiedoodle Variety?

As there are three size varieties, it’s easier to find one that suits your lifestyle. One of the most important considerations when getting a dog is how much space you have, including outdoor space.

You shouldn’t get a Standard Aussiedoodle if you don’t have outdoor space and plenty of time to exercise and play outside with your dog. Miniature and Toy Poodles still need exercise and outdoor time, but not as much.

If you live in a small space without outdoor space, such as an apartment, stick to the Toy Aussiedoodle. As a toy dog, this canine companion is meant to spend a lot of time on your lap. You can easily pick it up and carry it around, too.

When looking for a puppy, you should ask prospective breeders to show you the breeding stock (the puppy’s parents). For obvious reasons, the size of the canine mother and father will significantly impact how large your puppy will be as an adult. Knowing the dog’s potential size can help determine whether or not you have adequate space at your residence.

Another advantage of seeing the parents is getting a sense of their temperaments. After all, temperament has a vital genetic component in dogs. You must also ensure they don’t have any health problems they could pass down to their puppies.

Should You Get an Aussiedoodle?

Like any other type of dog, whether you should adopt an Aussiedoodle puppy depends on various factors such as:

  • Preferences
  • Personal needs
  • Lifestyle
  • Time availability

Something to remember with Aussiedoodles is that you’ll have to be especially attentive with training. This dog is affectionate, but it can also be mischievous. And that is tied to its intelligence.

Without enough mental stimulation and interaction, an Aussiedoodle will get into trouble.

You need plenty of time for training and playing with your dog if you want an Aussiedoodle. This weighty time requirement is likely more than what you would need with many other breeds of dogs. If you have a hectic schedule and are away from the house often, the Aussiedoodle isn’t the right dog for you.

You should devote at least four hours daily to spending time with your Aussiedoodle.

However, if you’re interested in bringing your new dog to participate in obedience classes, the Aussiedoodle is an excellent choice. You already know about the Poodle’s intelligence, but did you know that Aussiedoodles can be even more clever? That’s certainly the case when it comes to training and obedience courses.

Dog trainers have found that this cross-breed does exceptionally well, so schedule a class with your new dog and begin training!

Frequently Asked Questions

Now you know when to expect to see your Aussiedoodle full grown, you probably have some other questions about this mixed-breed canine. I’ll list and answer some frequently asked Aussiedodle questions below.

What is the temperament of an Aussiedoodle?

  • An Aussiedoodle combines the features of an Australian Shepherd and a Poodle. As mixed breed dogs, Aussiedoodle puppies vary in terms of how much they inherit from each side of their heritage.
  • The Aussiedoodle has a double dose of intelligence from the Poodle and Australian Shepherd. That is one reason you need to give your new puppy a lot of mental stimulation, and you should be incredibly attentive with training.
  • This dog also has the playfulness and eagerness to interact that we see in Australian Shepherds. Remember, the Australian Shepherd is a working and herding dog. This means it likes to have a job to do and will look for ways to help you.

Do Aussiedoodles shed?

  • Every dog sheds to some extent, but Aussiedoodles shed a lot less than many other dogs. Certainly, an Aussiedoodle is a much milder shedder than the purebred Australian Shepherds in its heritage. That’s because of the Poodle’s contribution to its genetics.
  • If you’re familiar with Poodles, you know that they shed very little. That is why so many people with allergies choose to purchase Poodles. Poodles grow hair rather than fur.
  • The difference between hair and fur is that hair has a longer growth cycle.
  • In other words, hairs don’t fall out as much as fur. Of course, each Aussiedoodle is unique. Some take more after their Australian Shepherd heritage, while others inherit more from the Poodle.
  • If you have an Aussiedoodle that takes more after the Poodles in its lineage, it will probably shed very little. However, if it takes more after the Australian Shepherd, it will probably shed a little bit more (but still much less than an Australian Shepherd).

Do Aussiedoodles have health problems?

There’s always a chance of a dog having a health problem during its life. As an Aussiedoodle is a mixed breed, you’ll have to consider conditions common in the Poodle and Australian Shepherd breeds.

Always do ample research on breeders before you choose one. Unfortunately, there are many disreputable and unethical operations out there. You should avoid such breeders because they may mistreat their dogs and inbreed them, leading to serious health problems and suffering.

What coat colors does the Aussiedoodle have?

There are several different Aussiedoodle coat varieties. As this is a mixed breed dog, it can be difficult for breeders to predict exactly which coat colors will appear in a litter. However, they can certainly get a good idea of what will happen by looking at the parent dogs (the mother and father).

Let’s take a look at just a few of the coat varieties we see in Aussiedoodles:

Black Tuxedo Aussiedoodle 

The Black Tuxedo coat on an Aussiedoodle includes a black-based coat and white patches. It’s pretty easy to guess this from the “tuxedo” name.

Red Tuxedo Aussiedoodle

If your Aussiedoodle has a “Red Tuxedo” coat, it will have a red-based coat with a chocolate look and white patches on the chest and neck area. This is what creates the tuxedo look.

Teddy Color

An Aussiedoodle with a teddy color usually has a black-based coat with tan and white. It gets its “teddy bear” name from how there’s some tan or white around the neck, creating the look of a color.

Final Thoughts

Aussiedoodles puppies tend to grow extremely fast from the day that they are brown. If you just got an Aussiedoodle, you’re likely wondering when it will stop growing. The good news is that an Aussiedoodle grows really fast up until the 12-month mark. Once they are 2 years old, Aussiedoodles will stop growing.
