Australian Mountain Doodle Breed Information

The Australian Mountain Doodle is a mix between the Aussiedoodle and the Bernedoodle. With the Australian Mountain Doodle you get the best of all three breeds! The health and smarts of the Australian Shepherd, the sweet and gentle nature of the Bernese, plus the allergy friendly properties and longevity of the Standard Poodle! We currently raise F1, F2B, and Multigen Mini and Standard size Australian Mountain Doodles.

Why Choose the Australian Mountain Doodle?

The Australian Mountain Doodle is the perfect blend between a mellow, outgoing, and allergy friendly dog. Our goal for our Australian Mountain Doodles is to create a lower energy Aussiedoodle while improving the lifespan of the Bernedoodle side, thus enhancing the main trait that the other breed lacks. Can't decide between the Aussiedoodle or Bernedoodle? Consider the Australian Mountain Doodle where you get the qualities of the Aussiedoodle and Bernedoodle that we love all in one package!

 

As a breeder of both Aussiedoodles and Bernedoodles we fell completely in love with the personalities and characteristics that both breeds had to offer and thought how wonderful this mix would be combined together. Our goal was to create the perfect family dog that not only had a longer lifespan, but also had an energy level that would be ideal for the average household. We wanted the smarts, willingness to please, athletic Australian Shepherd heritage to round out and compliment the easy going, gentle nature and lovable Bernese Mountain Dog that everyone adores. Combined with the stellar temperament, loyalty and coat traits derived from the Poodle we knew this would be one extraordinary cross! 

Coat:                                                     

Our Australian Mountain Doodles can have a straight, wavy, or curly coat depending on the generation and parents used. Our Australian Mountain Doodles tend to shed very little if any at all. Our F2B and Multigen Australian Mountain Doodles are recommended for those with mild pet allergies. 

The Australian Mountain Doodle coat will require frequent brushing when grown out and is fairly easy to maintain when trimmed. An Australian Mountain Doodle's coat is different than a double coated dog and can be shaved without damaging the hair. We recommend daily brushing and professional grooming every 6-8 weeks to avoid tangles and matting.
