Sheepadoodles are a cross between an Old English Sheepdog (OES) and a Poodle. OES are considered low shedding dogs, only shedding when brushed therefore when bred with a Poodle (no shedding) you get a hybrid breed that is highly likely to produce a dog that is hypoallergenic. We think it is very important to produce healthy puppies that grow into beloved and cherished family members. ALL of our parents are genetic health tested (through Embark) and chosen to breed based on temperaments, health, and personality.
Sheepadoodles are intelligent, funny, playful, loving, social, obedient, and easy to train. They need a moderate-high amount of exercise and grooming (needing to be brushed 2-3x a week and groomed every 1-3 months depending on your coat preference).
With OES herding instincts and Poodles intelligence, they are very good with children, other animals and can be trained to be therapy dogs and many have been known to love the water. Their average life span is 12-15 years. Below helps explain the generations of the Sheepadoodle.
