Overview
The Shepadoodle is created by the crossing of two breeds: German Shepherd and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and are one of the larger sizes that are not as popular as some of the other crosses.
Character
The ideal Shepadoodle is well-proportioned, muscular, and strong. They should be sturdy and hardy in appearance and possess an intelligent and lively expression.
Temperament
Loyal, affectionate, and devoted, the Shepadoodle is alert and active. They are family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom or loneliness will lead to destructive behavior. They do best in a home with older, considerate children or children they have been raised with. Shepadoodle's do well with dogs and non-canine pets they have been with since puppyhood. They are highly suspicious of strangers and will alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
The Shepadoodle requires frequent brushing to prevent matting and tangling and to remove loose and dead hair. Bathing should be done when necessary. They may be prone to such health issues as sensitivity to flea bites, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, bloat, skin problems, and Von Willebrand's Disease.
Coat
The coat of the Shepadoodle is generally medium in length and may be straight, slightly wavy, curly, or a combination.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are a must. The Shepadoodle requires a dominant owner. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Shepadoodle breed is not recommended for apartment living. They require a large amount of physical exercise and mental stimulation. Shepadoodle's do best in a suburban home with a large fenced yard or a rural setting with ample space to roam, run, and play.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Shepadoodle puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Do Shepadoodle's get along with other animals? For example Cats?

Shepadoodles are great with other animals (even cats). of course, bringing a puppy into a home with an older cat, the puppy needs to be taught that the cat is to be respected. Most cats handle that very easily with a swipe or two with their claws! But if your cat is more timid, you need to teach the puppy that cats are to be respected

This depends. Most dogs end up on a schedule of 2x a day (unless they are obese). Puppies need to be fed more often. Some puppies are what I call "grazers"... they nibble a bit on and off all day. Food should be available all day. Then there are the "snarfers" - they eat all of the food all at once. These puppies should be limited to a certain amount (check the bag of food you choose) and given 3 times a day.

When my Shepadoodle was a puppy, he had a sensitive stomach. I found that he did better on a lower protein food, such as Acana or Fromm when he was young. In large breed puppies like the Shepadoodle, make sure you don't over feed or give too much protein early on - it can make them susceptible to hip dysplasia and bone problems later in life. Feeding Bowl - I have always fed him twice a day from bowl on the floor. While you may be tempted, elevated bowls are a no-no for tall dogs, especially those like the Shepadoodle that are susceptible to bloat. A bowl on the floor forces them to eat more slowly, since they will have to lift their heads to swallow the food and temporarily slow down on consuming kibble. My boy got to be about 80lbs, 28" tall, but still believes he is a lap dog.

I am wondering which makes for a "better" breed...when father is... the shepherd or the poodle?

It doesn't matter, as far as which makes the "better breed". Most breeders choose the female to be the GSD and the male to be the poodle, simply because of size. The female GSD is better able to handle the birthing process with the standard poodle as the sire.

My Shepadoodle is very patient with children and lovely, however when he was young he jumped a lot, which could be upsetting for a small child.

Yes shepadoodle's come in different hair types but as far as I know you wont know what type of hair they will have until they are born. I prefer the in between not too much of either because I need it to be hypoallergenic but I don't like the look of the poodle. The more like a poodle the coat is the better it is for allergies.

I totally disagree with you saying the shepadoodle is destructive NEVER have any of mine dogs been destructive nor have they ever turn a lip up to a person.

how to care for shepadoodle

I own a shepadoodle and she's a GREAT dog I brush her at least 3 times a week. She goes to the groomers every 6 wks ( she has poodle hair ) and is kept in a puppy cut. I try to walk her as often as possible but do admit not enough we do have a huge fenced in yard so she gets lots of exercise . She's great with other dogs and cats and loves kids. Highly recommend one but you should always research your breed first.

Shepadoodles are great with kids and like any dog you NEVER leave them unsupervised around some children. As for not seeing their eyes lol I keep mine in a puppycut so not only can you see their eyes but they are adorable in it.

I own a shepadoodle and he never attempted to attack anybody (kids and adults alike). He barks at people outside our fence but once he finds out they are friends then he stops. I think shepadoodles are very intelligent but I can't really say much because we didn't have him trained. But definitely, shepadooles are very friendly to people and to other dogs..... (But never to other animals, a per my own experience)
