Goldendoodles are a crossbred dog which result when mating a Golden Retriever to a Standard or Mini Poodle.  They are the perfect pet when it comes to temperament. Perhaps one of the best reasons to add a Goldendoodle to your family, is that they are minimal-shedding to no-shedding, depending on the generation. If you have a severe allergy to dogs, we highly recommend an F1b Goldendoodle.

A designer breed is commonly called “Hybrid”, a term which is often misused.  Hybridization refers to the crossing of two completely different species as in the breeding of mules and generally render the offspring as infertile. Designer dogs are bred from “like” species and bred for specific reasons, of which the list is endless. Some of the more common reasons for the mixing of breeds are temperament, coat, color, size, personality, intelligence, health and agility. Genetically speaking, the cross-breeding of a dog, results in a healthier combination of the two specific breeds that are mated. There is no guarantee that the health is 100% improved, but defects among the different breeds are typically a result of the combination of recessive and/or homozygous genes or alleles, that specific breeds harbor. F1, or first generation cross breeds are the ultimate when it comes to getting an even mixture of both breeds. We do also offer second generation F1b Goldendoodles, which are 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 Golden Retriever.  Goldendoodles have a life expectancy of 12-15 years.

You will find Goldendoodles in a range of colors, including white, creme, gold, tan, red or a mixed combination of these. Cream is the most common Goldendoodle color.

The size of the Doodle depends on his parentage. A general rule of thumb is to add the two parents’ weights together and divide by two to get an estimated adult size of puppy.  Within any litter there may be puppies that fall above or below the projected adult weights.

Standard: 45 pounds or more

Miniature: 25-40 pounds

Petite: 12- 20 pounds
