What is an Australian Mountain Doodle?

 

An Australian Mountain Doodle or AMD is a cross between a Poodle, Australian Shepherd and a Bernese Mountain Dog.  Each breed brings their own unique breed traits to make this hybrid a wonderful family pet.  The Bernese Mountain Dog is known for their laid back approach to life.  The Poodle is full of grace, intelligence and offers a non shedding coat.  The Australian Shepherd offers high intelligence, and easy training to the mix, as well as their beautiful merle coat.  By combining these three breeds the hybrid extends the lifespan of the Bernese Mountain Dog and instills a low to medium drive with a very loving loyal personality. This is a recipe for a wonderful family pet!

 

What to expect from a Deep Creek Australian Mountain Dog?

 

Our medium Australian Mountain Dogs will range from 35-50 lbs and stand approximately 21-25 inches tall at the shoulder.  Coats will vary from wavy to curly depending on the generation.  As with all doodle coats, there will be grooming, brushing and coat maintenance required.  If the coat is kept trimmed it is more manageable.  Expect to groom your AMD every 6-8 weeks. 

 

What colors are Australian Mountain Doodles?

 

Australian Mountain Doodles come in a variety of colors.  We will have the following color palette available:  Merle, Merle Phantom, Brown Phantom or Brown Tri Color, Black Phantom or Black Tri Color.  Some will have blue eyes.  

 

How much exercise does an Australian Mountain Doodle require?

 

All dogs require daily exercise.  This keeps the dog healthy and less likely to develop destructive habits.  The Australian Mountain Dog will be happy taking walks, sitting at your feet or going for an adventure hiking on the nearest trails.
