The Smith Family raises F1 Aussiedoodles.
The first (F1) generation Aussiedoodle, is a 50% Australian Shepherd and 50% Poodle. The Aussiedoodle is considered low to non-shedding, and therefore may not be for a severe allergy sufferer however, a person with mild to moderate allergies should not have any problem with an Aussiedoodle. They are very low to non shedding because the hair gene from the Poodle is a dominant gene The Austrailian Shepherds genetics slows the hair growth down in the Aussiedoodle. Unlike the Poodle which needs to be professionally groomed every 6-8 weeks, Aussiedoodles usually can go almost twice as long between haircuts. F1 Aussiedoodles have a greater chance of being a non-shedding dog than any future generation.
