This mixed breed requires relatively little maintenance and tolerates most people, from the youngest to the oldest. You just have to be careful. Because of the Bordoodle’s intelligence, they can begin to exhibit stubborn traits if they do not receive proper socialization and training from an early age. Destructive behavior could even become a problem. But if you make sure you train your dog right, you will have the best dog in the family!
The Bordoodle is a mixed breed dog. They are not pure breeds like their Border Collie or Poodle parents. Bordoodles come in a range of colors and coat patterns, usually incorporating a mix of black, white, gray, and brown. Bordoodles do not shed much. Brushing your dog once or twice a week should be sufficient. These dogs are extremely intelligent, but that intelligence can sometimes manifest itself in destructive behavior if the dog is left alone or not properly trained. Children and Bordoodles are a great mix. In general, you couldn’t ask for a better family dog than the Bordoodle. Still, it is important to supervise playtime with all children and dogs. A couple of walks a day, about 45 minutes total, should be enough to keep the dog happy and healthy. Although, due to the intelligence of the mixed breed, it is very beneficial to incorporate obedience tasks into the exercise mix to keep the dog alert.
