Overview
The Goldendoodle is a family oriented dog like that of the Golden Retriever providing it is over 25 pounds in genetic body weight. Smaller Goldendoodles tend to pick up the traits of the Toy Poodle where temperament is concerned. The Goldendoodle is not a hunting dog but does enjoy outdoor sports and activities. The Goldendoodle is a non-aggressive dog who is other pet and children friendly. The Goldendoodle is a cross between a purebred Poodle and a purebred Golden Retriever. Goldendoodles can also be created by breeding a Goldendoodle to a non-related Poodle if the breeder is trying to achieve various coat colors. Shedding is minimal with first generation Goldendoodles. The Goldendoodle is a dog who enjoys being active with its family but is also happy to be an indoor pet as well. The Goldendoodle's purpose was originally for a low shedding assistance dog. Genetic issues are at a minimum but can be prone to dry skin and food allergies like that of the Golden Retriever.
Character
The Goldendoodle has a long, thick coat and can sport long or short ears that hang downward. The Goldendoodle sports a full facial beard as an adult. The Goldendoodle is considered to be fully grown at the age of one year and is a very family oriented canine. The Goldendoodle's tail rides high up over its back and has a full plume. Their facial expression always makes them appear to be smiling.
Temperament
Providing the breeder uses sound, quality breeding stock, the Goldendoodle has a well rounded, even personality and disposition. They are very intelligent, friendly with strangers and other pets and enjoy the companionship of their owner or family. The Goldendoodle is not a known biter. Behavioural issues can stem from lonliness, improper ownership, being crated for too many hours or from not having proper companionship. Obedience training is recommended at an early age for a perfect pet.
Care
The Goldendoodle does not require much grooming attention. Like many poodle crosses, most Goldendoodles are light to non-shedding, and most live easily with families with MILD allergies.
Coat
A Goldendoodle has two types of coat. Shaggy and wavey or Shaggy/wavey with loose curls. A Goldendoodle should not sport a curly coat like that of a purebred Poodle or a flat coat like that of a Golden Retriever. The Goldendoodle will go through 10-15 various coat changes and phases from the time it is born until the day it turns one year of age. The Goldendoodle's coat does require maintenence once the coat has fully formed. The Goldendoodle has a single coat that sheds very lightly.
Training
The Goldendoodle is very eager to please and enjoys learning. Positive reinforcement, Consistancy and repetition is the key to successful training. Goldendoodles do not respond well to harsh training methods.
Activity
Goldendoodles enjoy being indoors and outdoors and should be walked at least several times a week if it does not have a fenced yard to romp in. Goldendoodles enjoy swimming if it is trained at an early age to enjoy water.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Goldendoodle puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

How big do Goldendoodles get?

2 Comments

Anonymous

The Golden Retriever/Poodle cross, other wise known as the Goldendoodle is not a purebred dog. They are a mixture of two breeds, so there is no set standard for sizing when it comes to the dog itself. The best thing to do is to look at the sire and dam of the puppies so view how big they are. The puppies should grow to that size, if not a little smaller. But again, there is no standard size, so the puppy could even be bigger or much smaller then it's dam and sire.

Goldendoodles are commonly bred from a golden retriever/standard poodle cross and typically will range in size from 65-75 lbs. There are now breeders who offer a "mini-doodle", with the poodle parent being a smaller poodle. These dogs would range in size from smaller scale of their smaller parent to upwards of a Golden Retriever size. Females are typically smaller than males in any size Goldendoodle. Although not a recognized breed, Goldendoodles are a prized family pet due to their low shed coat and their demonstrated "hybrid vigor". Hybrid vigor is defined as the "increased vigor or general health, and disease resistance" as compared the inbreeding typical of more traditional dog breed.

Goldendoodle What are Goldendoodles like?

1 Comment

The Golden Retriever, Poodle cross is a mixed breed of dog with no set standards. Which means that by any definition, there is no way of telling what temperament, size, coat your dog will have. Since there are many different 'types' of Goldendoodles, it is very hard to tell at puppy-hood what your dog will be like. But, by doing research and by meeting the dam and sire of your puppy, you should be able to get a glimpse of what your puppy's temperament may be like when he/she grows up. The reason why there are over 450 standard and registered breeds out there is so that people can read about the standard of the dog and get a pretty good idea of what their dog will be like when fully grown. When mixing breeds together, there is no telling what the dog could turn out to be like. That is a risk you take by getting a mixed breed dog.

Considering the fact that both purebred golden retrievers and purebred poodles are waterdogs, then yes, most likely, goldendoodles like to swim. However, not all individual dogs conform to breed standards.

Goldendoodles are bred for low shedding, and perfect family oriented dogs. They will need shaved down to keep their coats under control.

Goldendoodles are wonderful family pets and exhibit the playfulness of a golden retriever and the intelligence of the poodle. Thanks to their low shedding coat, they are often well suited to families with a member who suffers allergies.

I used to be a die-hard pure bred golden retriever fan. But no more. Goldendoodles are the best! We've had our goldendoodle, Molly, for four years, and she is - by FAR - the best pet we've owned. I have trained several dogs, but Molly is the quickest to learn and desires to please 100%. I'm telling you, I would not have believed dogs like this existed. She is gentle, affectionate, intelligent and so sensitive to our needs. If any of us are sad she comes and snuggles. When we're anxious, she calms us. Can't speak highlyl enough of these dogs.

As with any breed, puppies of a specific dam and sire will carry traits from both of their parents. In a first generation (F1) breeding, all puppies will inherit genetics 50/50 from each parent; however, F2 (goldendoodle to goldendoodle) and F2b (backcross) breedings (goldendoodle with a poodle) will produce puppies that are genetically 65 % poodle and produce coats that are extremely low shed or no shed.

All Poodle crosses will shed. The Poodle in general sheds, but so minimally, that they are called 'non-shedders'.

An F1 is when the sire and dam are either Golden Retriever or Poodle. While an F2 is when both sire and dam are Goldendoodle.

We have had three German Shepherds over the past 30 years, and due to my health decided to "down-size" to a medium Goldendoodle. My first impression was that our pup required more attention (true) and wasn't as quick to potty train, but that is comparing his 6-8 accidents to our GS's 1-2. So probably not fair. :-) However, at 6 months, our Goldendoodle is simply wonderful. Smart, fun to groom, loves to walk (a good thing for me too) and has learned commands in both English and French. I have invested a lot of time during the past four months, but wow, has it paid off. Puppy classes and exposure to a variety of experiences, dogs, and children work wonders. He is so loving. A beautiful dog, who is also therapeutic to pet - he is incredibly soft. Love the army crawl, the "catch-me-if-you-can' games, and kisses. Good choice. I miss our German Shepherds but you can always learn to love a new pup! I couldn't ask for a better companion!

No, no dog can claim to be truly hypoallergenic. However, there are breeds that are very low or no shed, examples are Poodles and Bichon Frises. Goldendoodles, by virtue of their Poodle lineage are often low shed and specifically in the the second generation (F2) and backcross (F2b), are suitable for many allergy suffers.

Start with a long lead rope and let her wander around when you say "come" reward her with a treat when she comes. If she doesn't come, give the rope a tug and repeat "come". When she comes reward her.

It depends how curly the coat of the goldendoodle puppy is. The straighter the hair the more they shed. If the hair is curlier then the less the puppy sheds. But the curlier the coat the more you have to comb and brush the puppies hair.

If your dog bites you, you should smack him on the nose (not to hard) and say no. Also reward his good behavior. I would also try taking him to obedience class if this continues.

Price should be only one consideration in a pet, Goldendoodles typically range from $800 - $2000 due to their popularity, size and the time and cost of the breeder to bring a litter forward. It is important to visit your breeder in person and meet one or both parents before committing to any puppy. Low cost puppies may not be low cost over their lifetime! Most reputable Goldendoodle breeders offer a full health guarantee, which can be priceless!

When you see another dog approaching put your dog in a sit-stay (bring treats along if you need in order to do this). Let the other dog walk by while not letting your dog lunge. If she/he does make a quick correction with the leash and release. Do this as many times as you need to until your dog remains by your side and not lunging (treat when he/she calms down and is just sitting with you). If your dog will not sit or you don't think you can make effective enough corrections then I would place her/him in a down-stay and stand on the leash beside him so that he only has enough slack in the leash to have his head up but not Get up. She/he might struggle but remain calm and unemotional (when she does calm down, treat her). The best way to perfect this is to practice so ask some friends with dogs to help!! Good luck and Hope this helps!! Always treat your dog for good behavior. I always say, we don't work for free so why should they :)

I am a dog trainer. First of all dogs are attention starved when they jump. This means when they jump do NOT look at them, touch them, or talk to them. Even a very negative response will give them what they want and encourage the behavior.When they jump take one step foward. Once all four feet are on the ground praise him/her and give them a treat. If you keep going thourgh this process when they jump you should be good to go! hope this helped you.
