Learn More About Sheltidoodles

  • Temperament

    Sheltiedoodles are eager to please their owners, so they're easier to train. They're also extremely intelligent, like their poodle parent. They can be prone to seperation anxiety, so try taking them on vacation with you. They'll love the adventure!

  • Health

    Because they are a hybrid breed, Sheltidoodles are less likely to suffer from health issues. That being said, they still could be subject to health issues from either parent, like sebaceous adenitis, hip dysplasia, Von Willebrand’s disease or Collie eye anomaly.

  • Activity Level

    Sheltidoodles are energetic and need positive outlets for their energy. Keep them engaged with toys both inside and outside. A couple of walks each day will also serve a Sheltidoodle well.

  • Grooming

    If the coat is more like a poodles, you'll need to brush it daily and trim the fur every few weeks. If it's more like a sheltie, less brushing is needed but should still be done twice a week.

  • Shedding

    Thanks to their Poodle parent, Sheltiedoodles don't really shed which makes them hypoallergetic.

  • Appearance

    Since the parents both have really unique features, a sheltidoodle can vary widely in its appearance. Both parents have long, straight legs, so this is a guarantee. All other features could look more like one parent or the other. Their eyes are either blue or brown and their coat varies in color, length and coarseness.

  • History

    Being a fairly new designer cross-breed, Sheltidoodles don't have much history. You could be among the first owners to create Sheltidoodle history!
