Frequently Asked Questions
Are Bordoodles good with children?
We do our best to give our puppies exposure to children of all ages at a young age. Our own daughters grew up with border collies and often their herding instincts were present in keeping the kids out of trouble (such as from going down steps they weren't supposed to) the addition of the gentle and laid back personality of the poodles only helps! Bordoodles are excellent listeners and generally do well interacting with children. Since we expose our puppies to both children and adults at a young age they tend to be friendly and warm to people of all ages.
Are bordoodles good with other dogs?
Bordoodles are friendly and interact well with other dogs. Our puppies come from a home with multiple dogs and have been socialized with other puppies. Bordoodles tend to enjoy being leaders and their "herding instincts" are sometimes evident when interacting with other canines.
Are bordoodles registered?
Bordoodles have not been accepted by the American Kennel Club (AKC) as an official breed, therefore they are not able to be registered at this time.
Do you genetic test your dogs?
Yes! We strongly believe in genetically testing our dogs to prevent offspring with genetic defects. All of our Dogs have passed their genetic tests and are clear of all genetic traits and genes common in the Poodle or Border Collie breed. You can view their results under our Genetics page.
How big will my bordoodle become?
Each dog has a a different body and therefore has a different average body weight. The average bordoodle can be anywhere from 25-45 pounds and can vary by individual. Our female "Millie" is a petite border collie, weighing only 33 pounds at maturity. Due to her smaller frame and size it is expected that her litters will be on the smaller side.
Do Bordoodles shed?
Bordoodles are considered low-no shed and most people feel their bordoodles do not shed.
I am interested in a service/support animal. Can your bordoodles be trained for this?
Bordoodles are excellent candidates for support/ service animals due to their intelligence. The combination of the poodle and border collie is considered the smartest hybrid in the world. Additionally, Codee has fathered puppies which are now used as support animals including dairy detection, gluten detection, seizure detection, and PTSD support. Ask us for more information on how a bordoodle can be trained for these special roles!
How much does a puppy cost? Is there an initial deposit?

What are the steps to purchase a puppy?
We are excited you are interested in a bordoodle. They are awesome dogs and our family is excited for you to have a member of the Eby Eden family! The first step is to complete a Puppy Application from our website which gives us some information on you and your puppy's potential home. Once we receive and review your application we will be in contact to add your name to the litter and coordinate the receipt of your non-refundable deposit. Once the litter is born, you will have the opportunity to select your puppy in the order your deposit was received. When the puppies arrive you will receive an email and have the opportunity to set up visits to Eby Eden. Puppies cannot be placed in their forever home until they are 8 weeks old. When the puppy has reached 8 weeks of age you can visit Eby Eden to pick him/her up or we can determine delivery options. The remainder of the purchase price is required upon pick-up or delivery. Your contact with us doesn't end there.. we will also add you to the Eby Eden Family facebook group where you can share pictures of your pup and watch for posts from Eby Eden!

What does my puppy come with?
All Borders of Eby Eden puppies come with a medical record and health clearance by a veterinarian, birth certificate, and a folder full of helpful information for you as your puppy transitions home. Your pup will also be sent home with some of his/her favorite homemade gourmet dog treats baked with love by Halle and a handmade blanket that has been with the puppy since birth. The scent on the blanket can be helpful in a smooth and comfortable transition for your puppy to it's new home. Once your puppy transitions to his forever home we are still available to answer questions and address your concerns.
My dog loves the treats he came home with, is there a way we can order more?
