On our Instagram and our Youtube channels, we post videos of when they have their first taste of solid food, along with documenting the way they go from little lazy slugs to active, bouncy balls of joy. It happens quickly, usually over a two-week period!

Now, we are not only a Mini Sheepadoodle breeder. We also breed Mini Bernedoodles and Mini Goldendoodles! Stay tuned for a post coming soon about how we keep all our breeding mama’s happy and healthy. Many of our mamas live in Guardian homes to have more attention and love, which they completely deserve. Anyway, We breed several types of doodles. There are many more types of doodles out there as well that we don’t breed! All of these doodles have much in common, but it’s their differences that will help you as the buyer decide which breed will fit what you are looking for in a pet.

A unique doodle breed is the Sheepadoodle! A cross between an Old English Sheepdog and a Poodle, it’s not only the fun colors that set this breed apart. Here are three fun traits of the Sheepadoodle!

1. Temperament of a sheepadoodle- Vivacious and a great sense of Humor

To start with, Mini Sheepadoodles are funny! They come by it honestly. Both the Old English Sheepdog and the Poodle are breeds known to enjoy a good joke. Seriously! Cherry, our Old English Mama, loves to tease. One of her favorite jokes that she often pulls is when we play fetch, she pretends she can’t find the ball when it’s thrown. But as soon as you give up and go to retrieve the ball, she swoops in and grabs it in her mouth before you reach it. It’s a joke she never gets tired of.

Poodles are also quite silly. Far from being the aloof snobs from popular culture, Poodles are friendly and want everyone to be laughing. At the dog park, our Toy Poodle boys are the ones zooming around the park, enticing all the other dogs into a rousing game of tag. And, if they’re fast enough and can hide behind a tree or park bench without getting caught, they enjoy jumping out and scaring the dogs they convinced to play tag with them.

Sheepadoodles like making you laugh and often have a smile on their little doggie face.

2. Is a Sheepadoodle Waterproof?

Sheepadoodle coats are different than some other doodle coats in one specific way - they are a little waterproof! Both the Sheepdog and the Poodle were initially bred to work in the outdoors as herders and retrievers. This means that Sheepadoodle coats don’t get as wet from the rain and then dry off quicker.

Keep in mind that sheepadoodles are an active breed. They enjoy hikes and playing fetch in the backyard. Since these dogs will want to be outside enjoying nature anyways, its nice that their coat is well suited to spending time outdoors, no matter the weather.

3. Social

Admittedly, Goldendoodles are likely the most social type of doodle, but the Sheepadoodle is a close second. Sheepadoodles especially love people, and with proper socialization, are known to be great with kids and around town. Most Sheepadoodles have a little bit of that herding drive, so they enjoy corralling children. Some breeds of doodles enjoy the company of other dogs, but the sheepadoodle is most happy around people.
