Shepadoodles are extremely faithful and devoted to their families, making them ideally suited as companion dogs. These dogs with their easy-going, sweet and friendly nature are good with children as well as other animals. They do a great job watching their families, owing to their focused, alert, courageous, and protective disposition. Alerting the owners of an intrusion by constant barking is a behavioral trait commonly observed in them. Tender, patient, and family-oriented, they are always willing to please their owners. Like their poodle parent, they too have some funny instincts.
A smart breed by nature, it can pick up commands or instructions from the owners very quickly. To set control in your relationship with your pet and mold its behavior, train it early in its puppyhood by employing firm, fair, and consistent training methods. Teach it how to socialize by familiarizing with visitors and friends. Proper obedience training to the puppies should be provided to restrain any harsh and aggressive behavior in the future.
Give your pet 3-4 cups of artificial dry dog food every day. A nutritious diet containing rich sources of protein, vitamins, and minerals should be enough to keep it healthy.
