In fact, whether you are single or have a large family, Bordoodles are the most versatile when it comes to adapting to your families lifestyle. Not only are Bordoodles intelligent and affectionate they are very loyal to their owners. Bordoodles tend to be protective but get along with other animals as well. Bordoodles only require moderate amounts of activity and will be content with entertaining themselves indoors if provided with toys. Scheduling just 30 minutes of activity and exercise for your dog each day will suffice. Life expectancy is 12-15 years.

Temperament is made up of genetics and environment. Since our parent dogs live with us, we know them well. This allows us to better determine some of the traits your puppy will inherit. Poodles and Border collies are great problem solvers. These breeds tend to “figure things out” versus heavy, repetitive training.
