Frequently Asked Questions

Are Bordoodles good with children?


YES!! We give our puppies exposure to children and people 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 are friendly and warm to people of all ages. Many of our puppies are thriving in homes with children.




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 and dogs. Bordoodles tend to enjoy being leaders and their "herding instincts" are sometimes evident when interacting with other canines.




Will my bordoodle come with registration papers?


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.




Are your parent dogs genetically tested?


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. We are confident that we're providing you a healthy puppy, free of testable genetic conditions! As a result, all puppies come with the option for a two year health guarantee.




Do you offer a health guarantee?


Yes! All of our puppies come with a 2 Year Genetic Health Guarantee. To activate the Guarantee, your puppy must be examined by a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of coming home. The Health Guarantee is detailed in the Sales Contract you sign prior to picking up your puppy.




How big are bordoodles as adults?


Each dog has a a different body and therefore has a different average body weight. The average bordoodle can be anywhere from 35-55 pounds and can vary by individual. We do our best to predict your puppy's adult weight, but ultimately all we can provide is an educated guess!




Do bordoodles shed?


Bordoodles are considered low-no shed and most people feel their bordoodles do not shed. We will provide information about each puppy's coat type prior to Puppy Selection.




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, many of our studs have 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?


All puppies (regardless of size, color, or gender) are $2750. We require a non-refundable $500 deposit to hold your puppy. We accept payments in the form of Paypal, Venmo, and cash. We do not accept personal checks as a payment form at this time.
