Kayla’s Sheepadoodle Luv has made changes to our website as well as updating the current information; please make sure to visit all of our pages pages to learn all you can about Sheepadoodles.
What is a Sheepadoodle? Sheepadoodles are a cross between a female Old English Sheepdog (OES) and a male Standard Poodle. Sheepadoodles have the best of both breeds and are considered to be 99% hypoallergenic as well as non-shedding. They have calm temperaments, are extremely intelligent and easily trained. For these reasons they make great family dogs, especially in homes with children or other animals. Sheepadoodles require regular grooming which entails brushing several times a week to maintain their beautiful coats.
Are you a breeder or owner? We would love to hear about your experiences with Sheepadoodles in order to provide comprehensive information and tidbits to new and seasoned owners . They are a fairly new hybrid breed and there isn’t a lot of data out there to support the breed standards statistically. As a breeder, I refer our Sheepadoodle families to both the OES and Standard Poodle breed standards found on our website and inform the families that the Sheepadoodle will have a cross of both parent’s body, coat and personality types. The information provided to us will be confidential and put into a database that will be used to develop the Sheepadoodle standards and will eventually be published.
Most importantly we are looking for Sheepadoodles that have become a service dog or a therapy dog. I have been unsuccessful in finding an actual dog that has been certified in either field. If you have or know of someone who has a service or therapy Sheepadoodle, please contact us as our goal is to have a Sheepadoodle trained as a service dog for our granddaughter. We currently have 1 dog in training as a service dog and another as a therapy dog, both dogs are doing very well.
Our Sheepadoodle puppies: We believe our Sheepadoodle puppies are different from most of the other Sheepadoodle breeders as we have used a black and white Parti Standard Poodle to sire our litters. Our goal was to keep the coloring of the OES in our pups which is gray and white or to create a tricolor pup (black, white and gray). Because our Sheepadoodle's coloring is much like the OES, the coat colors do not fully mature until the pup reaches 12-16 months and it is impossible to say whether our pups will remain black and white or turn to gray and white or tricolor. Our first two litters have produced a mix of black and white, gray and white as well as the tricolor puppies.
What is our adoption process? Each adoptee will be put on a waiting list in the order that their adoption form was received. Once the pups are 5-6 weeks old the adoptive parents will be allowed to pick their pup (in order of the wait list) and all our puppies go to their new homes at 8 weeks of age. All pups will come with a 60 day health guarantee, have their dew claws removed (we no longer dock our pup’s tails), they will be checked by our vet and vaccinated as well as the initial worming.
