Because Aussie-doodles are half poodle, they are hypoallergenic. That makes them great for allergy sufferers

Many Aussiedoodles are hypoallergenic, however, that is not a guarantee. Because you have one breed that sheds (the Aussie) and one that doesn't (the Poodle) there still is a very small chance to get some shedding. However, if they do shed, it usually is minimal. Most allergy sufferers are actually reacting to pet dander, rather than hair, so if you keep your Aussiedoodle brushed and clean, give baths, etc. that usually helps tremendously. Aussiedoodles are a breed that needs regular grooming to keep them mat free anyway, so potential Aussiedoodle owners should plan to groom their pup. This also provides good bonding time and gives you a chance to look for any skin or coat issues your pup may have.

As an Aussiedoodle breeder, I get very frustrated by the lack of knowlege by others that reply on here. NO they are absolutely not "hypoallergenic", regardless of generation. They tend to be low-shedding, which makes them great for MILD allergy sufferers. However, for someone with severe allergies, they are not an appropriate breed. Some of us would rather our puppies go to forever homes rather than making a buck claiming them to be hypoallergenic, which is a term used loosely anyways. In fact, that is a good question for any potential breeder. If they claim to have a hypoallergenic puppy and do not explain the terminology and risks of reaction, look for another breeder as that is a very bad sign.
