Coat & Coat Care
They may have a coat like a Poodle that is curly and non-shedding. Or your pup may have the coat of an Australian Shepherd that is slightly wavy and a medium length.
Either coat should be brushed 2 to 3 times each week. If you Aussiedoodle’s coat favors his Poodle ancestry, you may want to trim the coat for easier care. If your pup’s coat resembles the Australian Shepherd, they will shed periodically and should be groomed more often during shedding periods.
