The Mini Sheltidoodle, also called Sheltipoo, is a designer breed crossed between the Shetland Sheepdog and the Miniature Poodle. Though not much is known about their origin and history, we can tell you that they take on the positive attributes of both parent breeds making for the ultimate loyal companion.
Appearance and Grooming
This hybrid dog will have a wedge-shaped head and a long muzzle that will be rounded near the end. Their coat is short and curly like that of the Poodle parent with medium thickness. They come in an array of stunning colors including, black, white, sable, brown, red, silver, grey, pied, cream, and blue. Brushing your dog two or three times a week will help keep it clean and smooth as well as monthly visits to the groomer for trims and nail clippings.
Attentive, loyal, even tempered and well-mannered are the main attributes of this mid-size companion dog. Though curious, these dogs pose themselves in a respectable manner in the presence of strangers, but will watch them intensely. If they sense trouble of any sort, they will use their loud boisterous bark to alert his owner immediately.
Family and Companionship
These loveable companions are best brought into a home with young children when they themselves are pups. As this breed ages, they become hypersensitive to loud noise and random movements if not introduced to such things early on. An ideal family dog, your Mini Sheltiedoodle will be a protector and a watcher. They do well in most environments if given ample space to run and play and aren’t left alone for long periods of time.
Most certainly an energetic breed, your puppy will require plenty of positive outlets for that energy. Daily walks and visits to the dog park as well as a variety of toys to keep them stimulated while at home will keep this puppy happy and healthy and well entertained.
Training and Socialization
This hybrid dog breed is extremely intelligent with a bit of a sensitive side, which means that they are easily trainable so long as you use gentle and positive training techniques. Through proper training, these dogs make for excellent therapy dogs. Shy and quiet by nature, socialization at an early age is important if you want your dog to behave appropriately in public.
