#31: All About Sheepadoodles!

This bonus episode is a celebration of Sheepadoodles, (or Sheepapoos, Sheepadoos, or Sheepoodles!), with research-based education about what makes them unique. This episode will help deepen your understanding of your personal Sheepadoodle. Or if you're considering a Sheepadoodle, I'll be addressing the most common questions and concerns so you can make an educated decision on what to look for and how to select the perfect puppy to add to your family. During this episode, you'll learn what desirable traits from both breeds can be enjoyed in a Sheepadoodle package, and which behavior traits will need a little extra work. We will discuss health concerns, testing you want to look for from a breeder, temperments, coats, colors, and much more.

oh hey there!

I’m Corinne, The Doodle Pro™


I get it.  You’ve tried training your doodle with what worked well with other dogs or for other trainers. 

(Maybe you’ve noticed that didn’t get your doodle as calm or happy as you hoped.)

That’s why The Doodle Pro™ does things differently.

All of my training methods are positive, research-based, and doodle specific. When should a doodle get their first grooming? How do you stop a doodle from barking? How can I stop my doodle from jumping on guests? When should I get a second dog? How do I help my doodle with separation anxiety?
