Aussiedor Breed History

The hybrid dog breed, called the Aussiedor, is a new breed of dog that does not have a detailed history. However, the two dog breeds that combine to make the Aussiedor, have long histories. The Australian Shepherd was developed in the United States to work as a herding dog. It is likely that the name of Australian Shepherd is due to the fact that the ancestors of the dog arrived in the United States from Australia; those who worked the dogs named them after where their ancestors previously resided.
The dog breed’s popularity increased in the 1950’s after the dog was featured in rodeos and films.
The Australian Shepherd now works as a ranch dog, guide dog, therapy dog, drug detecting dog, and in search and rescue.
The Labrador originated in Newfoundland, an offshoot of the original Newfoundland breed. Original Labradors were black and medium in size and successful at retrieving game. As strong swimmers, they performed well in the icy waters of their home and would frequently swim after fishing nets and pull small boats through the water. While the breed died out in Newfoundland, in part because of a heavy dog tax, many had been taken to England during the early 1800’s and the breed continued to evolve from these dogs. The Labrador was recognized by the American Kennel club in 1917. As a breed, the Labrador is strong at drug detection and working as a service animal.

Aussiedor Breed Appearance

The Aussiedor is a hybrid dog breed from the Australian Shepherd and Labrador, averaging anywhere from 40 to 80 pounds and standing (on average) 25 inches tall. The Aussiedor is large and solid in stature, with a broad face and relatively broad head. His hanging ears will be medium-large and his tail will be somewhat long. Dogs of the hybrid can have coats of numerous colors to include black and brown, black, light brown/golden, dark brown/chocolate, tricolor or spotted/merle/brindle/speckled. The coat of the Aussiedor can be straight or somewhat wavy, while typically being dense and able to repel water.

Aussiedor Breed Maintenance

Maintenance of your Aussiedor will be moderate, requiring regular grooming to ensure the health of his coat. Thought to be an average shedder as both parent breeds are, regular brushing (at least weekly) will be required for your Aussiedor. Using a conditioner made for dogs can help to detangle the hair of your Aussiedor before you begin brushing it. With regular brushing your dog will likely not need more than a few baths each year. Basic care that is necessary for all dogs is also important, to include trimming his nails as necessary and keeping his ears clean and dry.
In addition, you will want to brush his teeth regularly to ensure his overall dental health. The Aussiedor is considered to be easy to train; training should start when your dog first comes home. Socialization is also important so that your Aussiedor will be comfortable around other people and animals.

Brushing Frequency
Aussiedor requires weekly brushing
Daily Weekly Monthly

Aussiedor Temperament

The Aussiedor is known to be kind, loyal, gentle and friendly to those that he knows, likely forming close bonds with certain family members. A dog of this breed will tend to cling to his owners, which can lead to his feeling neglected when left home alone. The Aussiedor is protective of his home and can be cautious around strangers, sometimes alerting their owners to signs of danger. As the breed originates from hunting dogs, an Aussiedor may consider small children to be a part of his “flock” and may try to herd them. As the offspring of two intelligent breeds, the Aussiedor will quickly learn that he should not chase or nip children and will ultimately get along well with them. Dogs of the hybrid are easy to train and make good family pets.

Aussiedor Activity Requirements

The Aussiedor is an active dog that requires both exercise and mental stimulation. A dog of this hybrid can do well in an apartment or home as long as he is taken out for exercise (a good walk, swim or active play) on a daily basis. Should that not be possible, the Aussiedor should have a fenced in yard where he can safely run around and expend his energy.
Keeping your Aussiedor busy is important otherwise your dog may become destructive. Activities like working, running, playing, swimming, fetching and catching a frisbee will help your Aussiedor with his physical and mental health.

Rudy is an emotional support dog. She is always next to me when home. She gets an attitude if I am gone for too long or too busy. Rudy is fun and loving and loyal. She is super sweet, sassy, and has her own personality. She has a bad habit of running out of the house. She doesn't let me clip her nails. However, she is easily groomed, requires 2-4 baths a year. She is very attentive. Makes a wonderful support dog. Senstive to criticism. Understands language well. She loves car rides, to play, and has a lot of energy.

He is the sweetest little guy. We got him at 7 weeks which was very young. He was quick to learn standard commands mainly because he is extremely food motivated. He has started going to a trainer because we are having a really hard time with breaking him of his chewing habits and biting. He was crate trained in 2 days which is a life saver for us. Basically where ever we go he comes along and he loves it! He is so good with people and kids!! He looks more like a chocolate lab puppy but his longer fur is starting to really come in. Very very smart little guy.

She loves everyone once she is introduced and knows they are a friend. Mabel is full of energy outside but as soon as she comes inside she is very calm. She is a small aussiedor at only 45 pounds and she has the lab coat but Aussie blue merle coloring. Aussiedors are awesome!

I have had good and bad experience with dogs in my past. I love beagles but they were very hard for me to train and could never be off leash. We got our aussiedor about a month ago and its been a great experience. He is a solid red male. And I mean solid red. Red eyelids and nose. Its amazing to watch him learn tricks so fast. I'm by no means a dog trainer but I have owned many dogs and also have read up on training techniques. It only took a few 15 minute training sessions to teach sit, shake, and lay down. Keep in mind he's only 2.5 months old. He's also quickly learning the "settle" command to calm down when he gets too excited. I do have a 4 year old that quickly became part of his flock and he chases and nips, but we can see that behavior lessening by the day. Housebreaking was a big worry for me. He is almost housebroken but we have taken him outside to go about every hour he is awake and 3 times a night the first week. We are not crate training him because I don't like locking my dogs up. I know housebreaking will take longer because of this but he is catching on fast. If you are thinking of getting an aussie lab mix then just pull the trigger and do it with one thing in mind. They do have a lot of energy. I would wear out any other dog I've owned with a long walk. With Ranger I can walk him for a hour and bring him in and its like he just woke up and is ready to go. Anyway, he fits our family perfect and I think I've found the breed that I've been looking for my whole life. With the beagle mixes I used to rescue I was always frustrated that I couldn't let them off leash to just play. With our aussiedor we can take him to my moms farm with her great danes, lab, and basset hound and he gets the freedom to run and play while we don't worry about him taking off because he comes when called and also because the breed just likes to be around their people. To sum this up we just love Ranger our male aussiedor and he has been everything you could ask for in a dog!

Very sweet, but exciteable. Very vocal and energetic. He is very sweet but mischievious, we often find him doing things he is not supposed to be doing. He loves going to the park to play fetch but wont give the ball back. He chews threw a pig ear in 8 mins tops. He has an attitude and loves to talk back. He has moments where the aussie comes out and he gets very jumpy and bites, but with training he has been getting better. He eats a large bag of puppy food in a month in addition to begging for human food. At work, coworkers deliberately scare him and he has started to go for revenge and bite them (they deserve it though..) Loves the beach and to dig holes and loves car rides. He is a VERY smart dog, pottytrained by 9 weeks and knew how to sit, lie down, shake and high five by 9 weeks too. Overall an amazing dog, he has the best cuddles!

She’s very sweet, a little mischievous but was really easy to train. She hates brushes and baths so she cleans herself and the cats help. She is already almost 40 pounds at 3 months and already really tall for a puppy so she’s going to be on the bigger side. She loves playing fetch and cuddling. She’s cuddling me as I write this. She does get really hot though so our house is around 65-69 but I still highly recommend this breed

She is a very smart dog. She learned how to open all door even a pull one and shut them and also let her fellow dog companion out of his kennel in the mornings. One thing I would mention is she is very hard to read at times. She starting lunging when she was a pup and never stopped. If you maintain close eye contact she will lunge at you playfully of course. She likes to nibble on clothes to get you to play with her. She appreciates hugs and she does like when I give her kisses on her head. She does not mind at all me being close to her face or pressed against it lol.

Gunner is afraid of small dogs, but it very friendly with ones that are his size. He is the most loyal dog I've ever owned. He never leaves my side unless I make him do so.

Im here because I lost mine 7 days ago. Im devastated. Get your babies heart checked around 10yr cuz mine had DCM. Her bread didn't have a common name when I found her at the pound. They had her labeled as a mutt but she was the perfect cocktail and I can't imagine a better dog than my Rena. She was trainable like you wouldn't believe, that unimaginable energy took some getting used to though. I once had to go to the store to by shoes but wasn't allowed in the store without shoes and I had to explain to them that rena has shredded every single shoe I owned. I got the hang of it though and Im glad I did, she filled my life with so much joy. She was loving and goofy, hated baths and scared of storms and soo smart. When my niece was a baby Rena would bring her slobbery stinky dog toys and lay them right at the babys feet, of course my niece would then try to stick it in her mouth. So full of love.

When we first got her, we didn't know what to do! She had so much energy and wasn't able to express it properly. She was destructive (digging, clawing up our front door, tearing up her beds, etc.). But with adequate exercise and training she's calmed down quite a bit. She's protective of both my partner and me. She is so sweet and cuddly. She is great with my 5yo son. The best rescue we made. ❤

Snuggling on the floor
We rescued Koko from a farm four years ago--the owner of the farm had passed away suddenly. From the beginning, he has been very close to my daughter (who is now 8). He is very affectionate, but doesn't like to show it much. His health has declined a lot in the past year, but we just started him on a NSAID, which should help with his arthritis. He spends a lot of time relaxing, but at this point he has earned it. (Three owners, being shot, hit by a car, Lyme disease, several bouts with fleas). He still loves to go for drives in the car, even if I have to pick him to put him in the car.

He is the sweetest pup, so friendly and smart. Within the first two weeks we got him (he was about 4 months old)he was already house trained, sitting and understanding commands! He is quite energetic, but at the same time LOVES napping and cuddling. Working on his obsession with nibbling on hands and jumping up. I suppose that's the puppy in him still though.

Jade is already a valued member of the pack! She is so sweet, loves long walks on trails, and loves children(Sometimes tries to herd like cattle) but overall wouldn't trade her for the world

Koda, is such a great dog and listens to me, but when I am at work he tends to become destructive. When discipline he will show his teeth and test his boundaries.

Question

Was thinking about getting an Aussiedor female puppy. We’ve always had a Labrador Retriever and was wanting to let our daughter get a puppy and came across this breed. Was just wondering what to expect if we go this route. Thanks!

Answer
Hello this puppy will be a lot like a lab. They will be very energetic and need a lot of exercise and attention.
