The Bordoodle is known as a hybrid cross or a designer breed. They offer people a great dog that might want the attributes of the Border Collie with the less or non-shedding of the Poodle.  This is a very versatile breed.  They are excelling at being companions, therapy and competition dogs.  These fine dogs will have herding instincts as well as the love of water.  Because this is a designer dog it may be hard to predict which combination of characteristics you will get.  So please research both breeds to see if this is the right dog for you.  Other names are Borpoo, Borderpoo and Borderdoodle.
This breed is extremely versatile.  They love being with their owners and are very intuitive to their owner's needs.  It inherits a greater intelligence from its parents the Border Collie and Poodle.   This dog is very good with its feet.  They are agile and athletic. You might even find yourself laughing at their sense of humor.
Bordoodles thrive on human interaction and are very sensitive to owner's moods and emotions.  Because of their love and loyalty to family members, this breed does better when not left alone for a long extended time.  This dog is not for a home with a two-career family, as they can suffer from separation anxiety or become destructive.  The Border Collie and Poodle are rated to be the most intelligent breed giving the Bordoodle the highest intelligence.  Because of their intelligence, they enjoy learning, playing games and traveling. The Bordoodle has high energy so 30 minutes of exercise a day is needed.  They are well suited for children, however, they do best in homes where the children are at least 5 years old and are considerate.  This breed can receive the herding instinct which can become annoying with small children. They generally do well with other pets and also make great watchdogs.
Brushing once a week is all that is needed.  It is important to clean the Bordoodle's ears and teeth on a consistent basis.  Bathing should be done only as needed with a mild ph-balanced shampoo.
Bordoodle coats are usually wavy, curly and low to non-shedding. Their fur is very soft and usually shiny.  Because of the hybrid cross with the Poodle, their coats are usually hypoallergenic as well.
Early socialization and obedience training is recommended for this breed.  Bordoodles are very trainable but require fairness, firmness, consistency, praise and respect.  They do not take well to heavy handed training.  They excel at competitive obedience, agility, retrieving, herding, tricks, and acting as therapy dogs.
The Bordoodle enjoys swimming, family play and a leashed walk in the park.  They greatly benefit from a regular opportunity to romp and run off-leash in a safe area.  They thrive on work, mental stimulation and contact with their owner or family.  Because of their high energy, they do best when they have plenty of exercise.

Annual cost of owning a Bordoodle puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Bordoodles true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Retired. Used to raise and breed Standard Poodles, now Bordoodles. I keep them in my home and only have one litter a year. Since they are raised by hand and play with me, my husband, and my nieces, they are very sociable.

Why are Bordoodles hypoallergenic? ACHOO! I am sneezing like a nut because I have an awful cold and stuffy nose. -The first to answer this question is the WINNER!



Anytime you mix any two or more breeds together, all of the puppies are going to be different. Some will take after the dam, while others will take more after the sire. When mixing another breed with the Poodle, not all puppies will inherit the hypoallergenic coat of the Poodle. On average, only 1/3rd to 1/5th of the puppies between a Poodle and another breed of dog will actually acquire the hypoallergenic coat. It is not until both dam, sire and the pedigree of the puppy to all be hypoallergenic by at least 3 generations can anyone assume that all puppies in a litter will inherit the hypoallergenic coat.


I strongly disagree with Anonymous. I'm not a math wiz, but that doesn't sound like an answer based on experience, that sounds like an attempt to answer with statistics and guesses based on math, and not very good math or guesses at that. Sounds like an answer from the anti-Doodle crowd. You always have a 50/50 chance of getting the hypo-allergenic coat, statistically speaking. My experience of over 5 years of being a Poodle and Doodle breeder of several different types of Doodles is that we always get better results than that. Only folks with the most severe allergies will have allergic reactions to 2-3 of the puppies we have produced overall from almost two dozen litters! Most folks with allergies have the moderate to mild reaction to dogs, and to those folks will not react at all to any of our Doodle puppies or dogs, whether they be F1, F2, F1B, or multi-generational. We've done 2 litters of Bordoodles now, and have not had any reports of allergic reactions from them. Some of our clients with our Bordoodle puppies do have allergies to dogs, and report no allergic reactions to their puppy.
