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.

Annual cost of owning a Goldendoodle puppy

When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

At what age, in months, does a Goldendoodle reach its full size?

A Golden Retriever and Poodle reaches full size at a year and a half (18 months). So the mix between the two breeds would be the same. 18 months.

We are looking for a female Goldendoodle puppy for our son's birthday and could take immediately. We have always had dogs and currently have 2 female Goldendoodles - Mouse, 8 and Beans, 5. They live inside with us. They also have a fenced in backyard that's 100 by 100. We live near St. Louis.

May I ask why you don't want her? I have a 3 year old doodle who wants a sister. Is she an F1B by chance?

What does Fi, FiB, F2 mean?

When breeding mixed breed dogs, F1 means that the dam and sire of the puppy are both purebred, such as a Golden Retriever and a Standard Poodle. F2 means that both dam and sire are F1 puppies, so both dam and sire are half and half of each breed. F1B or F2B means that one of the parents of the puppy is an F1 or F2 dog and the other parent of the puppy is a purebred. Example: F1 Goldendoodle dam (Half Golden Retriever/Half Poodle) + Golden Retriever sire = F1B puppies.

Just for clarification, it's not often desired to breed an F1 Goldendoodle back to a Golden Retriever. The more desirable cross would be an F1 Goldendoodle back to a Poodle. These are the traditional F1B puppies.

Yes Crossing an F1 and a GR creates a dog which is mostly GR, a shedder and is not hypoallergenic

How big do Goldendoodles get?

The Golden Retriever/Poodle cross, otherwise 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 a 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.

What are Goldendoodles personality and character like?

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 standards 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.

Mine is a gentle giant. He weighs 85 pounds and is an inside dog. He is very gentle. He loves other dogs. They are like any other breed. They need to be socialized and trained. Mine is a pleaser. He will do whatever I tell him to just to make me happy. They need exercise as he tends to get lazy in the house.

My dog was the dog of my life. He was a human dog! My best buddy. Everyone in my family and extended family loved him. He looked like a puppy until he died at 12 1/2. He got Lyme disease and anaplasmosis which he then got cancer but it was the Lyme that took him out. I miss him everyday. So smart. Walked off leash, easy to train, lots of energy but most happy being with his person. He loved people and all animals. Everyone says he was the sweetie at dog they ever met. I had so many offers to take him. Friends called him Hollywood . He could get bored if left alone too long. You could see it in his eyes. Sensitive stomach, loved to bring gifts to people, especially shoes so you were always missing one. He was 76 pounds. He looked bigger due to hair but if I cut him he was skinny. Loved to swim. Smarter then my golden. The best dog. Shed in clumps when he was older. Easy to scoop up! Hope that helps
