Bringing Bordoodle puppies and families together!
The Two Smartest Dog Breeds
F2b Bordoodles are 62.5% Poodle and 37.5% Border Collie, F3 or Multi-Gene Bordoodles are 67.5% Poodle and 32.5% Border Collie, they are mainly called Bordoodle, Borderdoodle, Border Doodle, Border-Doodle, Borderpoo, Borpoo, Borpoodle, BorderPoodle, Border Collie Poodle mix, or Collie Poodle Mix. with breeders striving for them to be called Bordoodle. They are the perfect mix of the two smartest breeds of dogs, and may easily surpass their ancestors and become the smartest breed once recognized by the American Kennel Club. These Bordoodle combinations, offer those of us lucky enough to have them, Border Collie intelligence, agility and performance potential, while embracing the sensitivity, cuddly love, and keen emotional intelligence of the Poodle.
Plus you can now have that Border Collie you wanted but couldn't have with kids because they might herd them. Our F2b and F3 Bordoodles absolutely adore kids and they are the best kind of puppy to have with kids. Our Bordoodles pick the kids first and they don't herd them, so no nipping at the heels to worry about.
I am blown away and amazed with this breed and I don't just say so because I breed them. I love all animals and I in no way feel any breed is superior to another, and I in no way feel any dog is not smart. Bordoodles are just a different kind of smart, and it's difficult to explain until you have your own Bordoodle. Having a Poodle or a Border Collie that is purebred isn't the same either. It's similar but unless you have or have had both breeds it's different. Having other Bordoodle generations is similar but its also still not the same as an F2b or F3 Bordoodle. The most similar thing I can liken the breed to, after having both breeds and generations, is us. They are most similar to humans. This is in intelligence and not abilities. So that means emotions, understanding and requirements.
They have happiness, they have sadness, they show displeasure, they feel left out. They require comfort, they require apologies, they require reassurance. They require gentle guidance and find their joy by being a part of their family. They feel your pain, they can cry with you, and they run to you when you're sad in hopes of comforting you. They feel your anger and hang their heads in shame afraid it was them that caused it. They look into your eyes for guidance and read your body language for what they should do next. They learn sentences and know what you are saying, they listen to a new request you ask of them and do as you ask without ever being taught to do so. They get better with age but it starts much earlier than most breeds. They can help you in your tasks without you having ever needed their help. They are inquisitive and nosy and will stand by your side through everything you do. They will make sure the kids get up when they're supposed to and they will abandon you to be with kids known or new. They will be eager to see everyone after you have been away and make sure to show you how unhappy they were to be left behind. They will question newcomers and they will either approve of them or not. They will protect you with every ounce of their being and defend their home with pride. They are more than amazing, they are absolutely incredible, and when you have them in your life you will quickly see why.
Our Bordoodle's Non Shedding and Hypoallergenic Potential
The F2b and F3 Bordoodle offers a hypoallergenic non shedding dog. It is a big priority to us that our puppies are non shed and that is why we moved past breeding F1 pups as all F1 Bordoodles will have some shedding and cannot genetically be considered hypoallergenic.
All F2b and F3 Bordoodle puppies bred here at Mile High Bordoodles are silky coated, (no course Terrier like coats) and are non shed, they all also have a breed standard doodle look. Mickey and our girls have yet to have a single even slightly shedding puppy.
Are you allergic to dogs? Looking for a dog that doesn't cause an allergic reaction? Mile High Bordoodles has still found successful placement of even our past very low shed puppies in severe allergy prone homes. (We do encourage non shed only for allergy sufferers.) Only the F1b Bordoodle or future generations F2b and beyond, F3, F4, etc... can offer a hypoallergenic dog.
Bordoodle Service and Training Potential
Mile High Bordoodles has found great success in placing puppies and families together that are in need of them becoming a companion animal or to be trained for service outside of the home. Bordoodles are the best puppies for kids and the best puppies to own. From alert dogs for medical conditions, to being a support dog for specific individuals with autism or anxiety, to being trained to go into hospitals and give comfort to those needing it. With a the huge added bonus of being non shedding. Our F2b and F3 Bordoodle pups are exceptionally aware, they are all capable of obtaining these goals, and our breeders are all non hyper dogs that pass on these calmer traits to their puppies. Training comes quick to them, they just get it, we have had trainers and vets that have been greatly impressed by our F2b and F3 Bordoodle's quick grasp of learning and laid back personalities.
F1 - The F1 Bordoodle is 50% Poodle and 50% Border Collie. They are bred from a full blooded AKC Poodle and AKC Border Collie. They offer shedding, low shed, and very low shed coats that are corse to soft. They generally tend to be more like the Border Collie, being work oriented and having a higher herding instinct. They are sometimes loving but very independent and very smart. Mile High Bordoodle Dams that produce our F2b puppies are F1 Bordoodles.
F1b - The F1b Bordoodle is 75% Poodle and 25% Border Collie (the b standing for being bred back to a full blooded Poodle). They are bred from a full blooded AKC Poodle and an F1 Bordoodle. They offer non shed to low shed coats that are silky and soft. They generally tend to be more like the Poodle, sensitive to emotion and having sensitive feelings. They are very smart but can get their feelings hurt and make it clear if they like you or not, they are very loving and cuddly. They do not have Border Collie determination to work, but do seem to gain a bit more agility than a full blooded Poodle. Mile High Bordoodles Sire is an F1b Bordoodle.
F2b - The F2b Bordoodle is a next generation Bordoodle, they are 62.5% Poodle and 37.5% Border Collie. This generation is locking in the breed standard, and the generation moving toward AKC recognition. They are bred from an F1 Bordoodle and an F1b Bordoodle (the b still stands because their bloodlines have been bred back). They offer non shed to very low shed coats that are silky or soft. They generally tend to be a perfect blend of the Poodle and Border Collie, they can work if asked while also having a more sensitive side. They are lovable and cuddly like a Poodle and they are quick witted and agile like the Border Collie. Our litters offer varying personalities in this and can match based on what you desire or need more. Currently only Mile High Bordoodles breeds strictly F2b next generation or F3 multi-gene Bordoodles all from AKC bloodlines.
F3 - Our F3 Bordoodles are 32.5% Border Collie and 67.5% Poodle. This is a multi-gene Bordoodle as it is now a multiple generation puppy. This generation will continue to lock in the breed standard and move toward AKC recognition. Our F3 pups are bred from an F1b Bordoodle stud and F2b Bordoodle Dams. They offer non shed, hypoallergenic coats. All coats are silky. They generally tend to be a perfect blend of the Poodle and Border Collie, they can work if asked while also having a more sensitive side. They are lovable and cuddly like a Poodle and they are quick witted and agile like the Border Collie. Our litters offer varying personalities in this and can match based on what you desire or need more.

F4, F5, F6 and so on - These Bordoodle generations continue to lock in the multi generational Poodle and Border Collie breed standard working toward AKC recognition. They are able to be bred from two like Bordoodles, F2b to F2b and so on. AKC recognition can happen sometime after the F8 generation. This takes many years and breeders working together to get there. There are no Bordoodle breeders breeding these generations.
