What is a bordoodle?

Bordoodles are a cross between a pure bred Border Collie and Poodle. They are considered a designer breed. The Bordoodle is popular because it exhibits the best qualities of the Poodle and the Border Collie - which are both wonderful canine breeds. The Bordoodle is recognized as one of the smartest "doodle" breeds in the world! 


Bordoodles are friendly, happy and highly sociable. These fun, loving, and affectionate dogs are great with children and make a great family pet. With proper socialization, they are wonderful around children, other pets, and strangers. These dogs are a good match for anyone, from career focused owners, seniors, those who are single, large families, and more! Bordoodles tend to have friendly, social personalities, and will rarely display aggression. They are quite forgiving and have a heart for their owner! They are incredibly intelligent and quite pleasant to train. 

Coat type

Bordoodles have a wavy, soft, silky coat. Even though the Border Collie is not considered a hypoallergenic breed, the Poodle is. This means that a Bordoodle will have a low shedding coat that is considered hypoallergenic. Country Raised Bordoodles currently breeds F1 Bordoodles. They are 50% poodle and 50% border collie. 


Our miniature bordoodles will grow to be approximately 20 to 30 pounds. Our medium sized bordoodles will grow to be just a little larger at 30-45 pounds. Our standard size will be about 50+ lbs. We are very pleased to be able to offer all 3 sizes.
Life span
Bordoodles have a long life span. Fifteen years is not uncommon for a healthy, cared for Bordoodle. 


Bordoodles are loyal and easy to train. They are very agile and eager to please. Bordoodles only require moderate amounts of activity, and they can be content with entertaining themselves indoors. Scheduling just 30 minutes of activity and exercise for your dog each day will suffice. For those who work long hours, an enclosed backyard is a perfect space for your pup to run around, play, and burn off some of that energy!
