Here are Farmstead 51:

  • We breed F1 (Old English Sheepdog x Poodle) only. All puppies in a litter will be genetically identical so we can tell families, with certainty, the traits of each puppy. 

  • We only breed Standard sized Sheepadooodles.  Our Standards weigh between 60-80 pounds as adults.

  • Colors will vary from litter to litter based on the genetics of the parents involved. We always encourage families to select a puppy based on temperament not color but if color is important for your family, we can help you determine what parent pairings would yield your desired result.

  • Sheepadoodles need engagement and exercise on a daily basis.  We expect our puppies to be members of your family, as ours are, and to live in the house with you, go on trips with you, go to soccer games and birthday parties, just as your other family members do.

  • Sheepadoodles need daily grooming as puppies and weekly grooming as adults.  The curlier the coat, the more grooming is needed.  We encourage families to learn how to groom as it's a great bonding experience but professional grooming is necessary.

  • Sheepadoodles tend to be more "vocal" than Goldendoodles as they "talk" often. They also tend to be more stubborn, shy and nervous when not properly socialized. The first 6 months of your puppies life needs to be full of new experiences, people and places.
