About the Shepadoodle Dog

Shepadoodles are dogs with high spirits and learn quickly. They are active dogs that do tend to need a sizable yard for exercise and frequent opportunities to play. Because of their Poodle line, Shepadoodles do tend to shed less requiring less work in terms of grooming. However, their coat does continue to need brushing to keep out mats and tangles.
