Goldendoodles are a mix between the Golden Retriever and the Poodle. Goldendoodles are a wonderful combination of the best of two well-loved breeds. Life expectancy is about 13-15 years and they require a moderate amount of exercise.
Allergies are quite complex and shedding is just one component. Dander, saliva, proteins and allergens carried on a dogs coat all contribute to a person's allergic reactions. Due to this, we cannot guarantee that our dogs are hypo-allergenic. It is dependent upon each individual and his/her unique set of allergies.
Baby Blanket test
Still worried you or a loved one might be allergic to your new doodle? We offer a baby blanket testing service . We will place a baby blanket with the litter of puppies exposing it to all that their fluffy little coats have to offer and then send it to you to give a little sniff. This might not be exact science but it may be just what you need to help put your mind at ease.
If you are interested in having this test done please contact us for arrangements. There is a $75 fee for this service.
Goldendoodles come in many colors due to the influence of the Poodle. Their coats are classified as straight (more like a Golden Retriever), wavy, and curly (more like a Poodle). In our experience the curlier the coat the less the shedding!
Goldendoodles coats requires regular grooming. Weekly brushing using a soft slicker brush as well as a good detangling spray and a steel pet comb will work wonders! Taking a trip to the groomers every 6-8 weeks will help maintain a traditional doodle cut.
F1 = Golden Retriever x Poodle
F1B = F1 Goldendoodle x Poodle (or Goldendoodle x Golden Retriever)
F2 = F1 Goldendoodle x F1 Goldendoodle
Multigen = Two Goldendoodle parents – One parent has to be an F1B or multigen. A Poodle bred to a multigen Goldendoodle also constitutes a multigen.
There are 4 different sizing classifications for Goldendoodles.
Petite range: Height: below 14 inches, typically less than 25 lbs.
Miniature range: Height: over 14 but under 17 inches, typically 26-35 lbs.
Medium range: Height: over 17 but under 21 inches, typically 36-50 lbs.
Standard range: Height: over 21 inches, typically 51 or more lbs.
All of our puppies are Multigenerational and are anticipated to be within the Standard size range. To date our puppies coat colors have included creams, apricots and blues. We have tested our dogs to ensure that each puppy will have either a wavy or curly coat as well as full furnishings (the adorable fluffy "doodle" face)!
