Essential Aussiedoodle Supplies: What You Need for an Aussiedoodle

4 adorable Aussiedoodle puppies

Are you bringing home a new Aussiedoodle puppy or adopting an older Aussiedoodle? If so, then you need to prepare for your new arrival. Aussiedoodles are one of the most energetic and intelligent hybrid dogs in the world! Of course, the dog is a cross between the Australian Shepherd and Poodle, two high-energy breeds.

As a hybrid dog from two high-energy parents, the Aussiedoodle needs a lot of activity and maintenance. They need toys, a harness and leash, dog food, and a dog crate among other essentials. Luckily, I’ve done the prep work by compiling a list of supplies you'll need for your new furry friend. To help make their transition to your home smooth, here are the top essentials that should be on your list.

Dog Food and Feeding Bowls

1. Kibble

Puppies have unique nutrition needs, and your new Aussiedoodle puppy is no exception. If you are bringing home a new Aussiedoodle puppy, then you need to feed them puppy food. It's essential to feed your puppy dog food formulated for puppies to support its development. If your Aussiedoodle puppy eats adult dog food, it may not receive the nutrients needed to support its development. In other words, adult dog food is not nutritionally balanced for puppies and, if eaten regularly, could lead to a deficiency.

The Puppy Premium Nutrition Small Kibble by Hill's Science Diet is carefully formulated for the developmental needs of little pups. For healthy brain and eye development, the food contains DHA from fish oil. It contains balanced minerals to promote strong bones and strong teeth and is rich in protein for lean muscle growth. If your Aussiedoodle is under 1 year old, then this is the food for them.

Water and Food Bowls

For your new Aussiedoodle dog, water and food bowls are essential items. Luckily, the choices are endless! However, you should make sure the bowls are the correct size. Your Aussiedoodle should be able to eat and drink comfortably from the bowls and reach to the bottom. EpetsLove has an adorable design for small-medium dogs such as the Aussiedoodle. The double bowl set is dishwasher-safe and convenient for serving food and water at the same time.


Aussiedoodles are smart and high-energy dogs and therefore need mental stimulation to prevent boredom, which can lead to destructive behavior. As a dog that thrives in both playtime and training, the Aussiedoodle needs puzzle or interactive toys, as well as training exercises.

Walking Essentials

As well as playtime, the energetic Aussiedoodle needs regular walks to stay healthy and happy. A leash and harness are two essential items for dog walking. An adjustable dog harness is a great choice for Aussiedoodles, as they are deemed small-to-medium dogs. Consider the tobeDRI No Pull Dog Harness Adjustable Dog Harness! It is available in four sizes (small, medium, large, and extra large) and comes with a free heavy-duty 5ft dog leash. You can choose the medium or large size for your Aussiedoodle, depending on its size.

Dog Crate

A Dog Crate with two entrances

Every dog needs to be crate trained and your Aussiedoodle is no exception. Having a dog crate for your Aussiedoodle in your home gives them a cozy spot of their own. A dog crate is also a helpful aid when potty training your Aussiedoodle. That's because dogs generally don't like to soil the area they sleep in. The ideal dog crate for your Aussiedoodle should be the proper size, as your pup needs enough room to comfortably sit, stand, and lie down within the crate.

If you are bringing home an Aussiedoodle puppy, consider an expandable crate. In other words, a dog crate that comes with a divider panel. This divider panel lets you adjust to expand the space inside the crate as your puppy grows. It is also recommended that you look for a crate with multiple entrances. In addition to providing your dog with easy access, a dog crate with multiple entrances lets you find the perfect corner of your home to angle it in.

The MidWest Homes for Pets Double-Door Dog Crate is an excellent choice for your Aussiedoodle! The crate comes with a divider panel in addition to having two entrances. Its 36.6"L x 21.9"W x 24.5"H-inch dimensions mean it is suitable for dogs with an adult weight of 41 to 70 pounds.

Dog Bed

An Orthopedic Dog Bed

Optional — but wonderful, dog beds do provide extra layers of comfort and support, which your Aussiedoodle will find invaluable. However, finding the perfect dog bed for your Aussiedoodle isn't always a cinch. It is crucial, especially for Aussiedoodle, to find the right size and shape for a dog bed. Opt for an orthopedic foam dog bed tailored to fit your Aussiedoodle’s body. The Furhaven Orthopedic Dog Bed is a great choice because it is designed for medium-sized dogs. Measuring 36"L x 27"W x 6.5"Th, this sofa-style bed helps ease discomfort and promote restful sleep.

Dog Brush

Aussiedoodles require regular brushing to prevent matting, especially ones with curly coats. Brushing your dog at least 3 times a week using a slicker brush can help reduce mats and tangles. A metal dog comb can also used alongside the brush for excellent results. The Easy Self-Cleaning Slicker Brush by SHEDTITAN is an ideal choice because it comes with a de-matting comb to achieve amazing results.

Dog Shampoo

Dog Shampoo with natural ingredients

To keep your Aussiedoodle's coat in tip-top condition, you should bathe them every 4-6 weeks with a high-quality dog shampoo. When choosing the best dog shampoo, look for one that is free of harsh chemicals. In other words, opt for a dog shampoo that contains natural ingredients. The TropiClean 2-in-1 Papaya & Coconut Dog Shampoo and Conditioner is a great choice because it's free of harsh chemicals such as paraben, dye, and soap. It contains natural ingredients such as coconut and vitamin E for a silky soft coat.
