Where do Goldendoodles come from?
Goldendoodles are an American hybrid. They are a cross between a Poodle and a Golden Retriever.
They were invented in the 1990s, and have been stealing hearts ever since.
Unlike many other "designer dogs", the Goldendoodle has a national breed club - GANA. The coat type, sizes, and temperament are being standardized through the member breeders who are committed to the development of the breed.
Our Goldendoodles are multi-generation puppies. They are 75% poodle, and 25% Golden Retriever. They 100% are pure Goldendoodle.
You may have heard of F1, F1B, F2, and multi-generation. These are acronyms for the generation of the dog. Dogs with a "B" in their generation, are back-crossed with either a purebred poodle, or purebred golden retriever.
F1 = Golden Retriever x Poodle. (50% Poodle, 50% Golden Retriever)
F1B = F1 Goldendoodle x Purebred Poodle. (75% Poodle, 25% Golden Retriever)
F2 = F1 Goldendoodle x F1 Goldendoodle ( 50% Poodle, 50 % Golden Retriever)
F2B = F1 Goldendoodle x F1B Goldendoodle ( 62.5% Poodle, 37.5% Golden Retriever)
Our Multi-gen Goldendoodle: F1B Goldendoodle x F1B Goldendoodle (75% Poodle, 25% Golden Retriever)
Are Goldendoodles Hypo-Allergenic?
Buyer beware any breeder that promises a hypo-allergenic dog. There is really no such thing - however some people will have little or no allergic reaction to certain dogs. We welcome you to come meet our dogs, handle them, and see how you react if you have allergies.
Do Goldendoodles Shed?
Our Goldendoodle's are not prone to shedding. You may find a hair here and there, but you are not going to find clumps of dog hair rolling around your house like tumbleweeds. You can pick them up and put them down without being covered in dog hair. They have a very poodle-like coat, with varying degrees of curliness.
Are Goldendoodles good with children?
Yes. The Goldendoodle is, in our opinion, the quintessential family dog. They are very tolerant of children, playful, and friendly. They are not aggressive by nature. Proper socialization is necessary for all dogs. We have a large family, and the puppies will be introduced to adults and children at an early age. The socialization process starts with us, but continues in your home.
Do Goldendoodles make good guard dogs?
NO! Goldendoodles are not aggressive dogs. They make instant friends with everyone they meet. They may bark when they hear someone at the door, or at another dog passing by - but they don't bark excessively.
Are Goldendoodles easy to train?
Yes! They are highly intelligent and eager to please, making them excellent candidates for training. All of our puppies leave already knowing the "sit" command. We recommend training "stay", "Leave it", "down", and "off" as well.
We breed both English and American Goldendoodles. The distinction between the two is informal - both are classified as Goldendoodles by GANA.
An English Goldendoodle is a cross between an English Golden Retriever and a poodle. An American Goldendoodle uses the American Golden Retriever instead.
