My aussiedoodle loves to swim! Just took her camping over father's day weekend and she followed my 5 yo daughter into the lake and started swimming right away. I took her canoeing with me this past weekend and she was a model citizen, staying in the boat till we banked and then she loved to get out and swim and run in the stream/river.

My Aussiedoodle puppy jumped right into the lake in spring it was too cold for me but he loved it.

Aussiedoodles like many breeds or hybrids can swim. I know both Australian Shepherds and Poodles usuly love to swim. If you are set on having a dog that will have fun playing in the lake with your grandchildren, then be sure to interduce your puppy to water at an early age and make it positive and fun. If you are just worried about safety issues with your puppy, it should be fine. Dogs have an instinct to swim. There are a couple of breeds such as the Boston Terrier, that are so top heavey they will sink but it is not an issue for Aussiedoodles. HOPE THIS HELPS!
