What is a bordoodle?
Bordoodles are a cross between a purebred 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. 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.
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. We are looking forward to adding F1b Bordoodles in 2022!
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 45+ lbs. We are very pleased to be able to offer all 3 sizes. We are looking forward to adding the tiny size in 2022!
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. They enjoy activities such as running, walking, swimming, hiking, agility, or playing fetch, but are also happy to cuddle up on the couch or sit beside you while desk work is being done. They enjoy being with you and love to do something for you! Bordoodles require moderate amounts of activity. Scheduling 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! Daily walks or runs for your dog are great for exercise as well.
