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.

Annual cost of owning a Goldendoodle puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Goldendoodles true ownership cost. 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.

If the mother weighs 57 pounds and is a Goldendoodle and the father is a standard Poodle 55 pounds, how much would their female puppy weigh approximately when it is full grown???



Since the pup will be 3/4's Standard Poodle and 1/4 Golden Retriever, there is a higher chance that the puppies will take after the Standard Poodle standard vs. the Golden Retriever. The average weight for a female Golden Retriever is 55 - 70lb, while the average weight for a Standard Poodle (male or female) is 45 - 70lbs. Normally a female dog will weigh less than a male of the same bred standard. It seems approximately as long as the puppy take after the Standard Poodle side of the two breeds it is mixed with, the dog will weigh in at between 50 - 55lbs. However, if the dog does take after the Golden Retriever side of the family, I would suggest the raised potential weight to 50 - 60lbs.


Out of the same litter, by the same parents, I have a male that reached 85 lbs and his sister only 45 lbs. You cannot predict the size of a dog with hybrid vigor, nor which parents genetics each pup received more of. Having said that, the formula baseline is to add two parents weights together and divide by 2, the second formula is to weigh them at 16 weeks of age and double it.

Anonymous asked:
Are Goldendoodle's easy to train?



The ability to train a dog, no matter the breed or mix all depends on several factors. These include but are not limited too the experience the new owner has in training dogs, the age of the dog, the temperament of the dog, the type of training style you are trying to use, if there are any past negative trauma or negative behaviors one is trying to overcome, ect. The Goldendoodle is a mix breed dog between the Golden Retriever and the Standard Poodle. If you look at both breeds, there are positives and negatives. The Golden Retriever is known to be very food motivated and with a steady, firm but gentle, positive reinforcement training style, they can be trained quickly. The Standard Poodle is known to be either food or toy motivated, but needs a gentler hand as they do not do well with aggression, ie: scolding, yelling, ect. and do best with a positive reinforcement training style as well. All in all, this mix should be able to be trained fairly quickly with the help of a Positive Reinforcement Based Trainer to help you start you in the right direction.


They're easy to train if they maintain eye contact, showing they are looking to you to see what you want them to do and they are easy to train with treats, if they are food motivated. They are not easy to train if they are overly submissive, aloof, (wondering around trying to do their own thing and hard to get their attention) or uninterested in treats.

Is a Goldendoodle a good pet?

1 Comment


Your question is a personal one. Some will say yes, while others will say no. There are pros and cons to every dog, no matter if the dog is purebred or not. The Goldendoodle is a mixed breed dog of Golden Retriever and Standard Poodle. Do some research on both breeds, and if possible, spend some time with both breeds separately. Even if it is just saying hi to someones dog on the street. Look at the pros and cons of either breed and then know that a mix is going to take both pros and cons from both and be mixed differently in each pup. You could get all the pros from both breeds in one pup (ie: non/minimal shedding, friendly, loyal, moderately active, ect.) , while all the cons in another pup (ie: heavy shedding, prone to cancer, prone to OCD behavioral issues or anxiety issues, high energy and easily excitable into a frenzy, ect.) Lastly, this mixture is very popular right now, so it is easy to go and see them on the street to meet them. Ask the owners if they would want their dog after having it for a while, ask about the pros and cons, ask where they got their dog, ect. The more questions you ask now, the better you will be able to make that choice as to whether this Goldendoodle is a good pet or not.

Anonymous asked:
How can I know that a female Goldendoodle will not be over 25 pounds? What do I ask for?



For that weight, you'll be looking at the cross between a Golden Retriever and a Toy Poodle (instead of a standard or mini Poodle). Note that smaller Goldendoodles are usually more expensive. However, since Goldendoodles are not a purebred, there's no guarantee their weight won't exceed a certain number.


The Goldendoodle is a mix breed dog that is between a Poodle ( either standard, moyen, miniature, or toy), and the Golden Retriever. The average size of a Golden Retriever is 55 - 75 lbs, while the standard Poodle averages 45 - 70 lbs, the moyen Poodle averages 25 - 35 lbs, the miniature Poodle averages 15 - 17 lbs, and the toy Poodle average 6 - 9 lbs. When you start to mix breeds together, there is no longer a set standard like above. Because of that, the only way to know what the potential size of your puppy at full grown would be is to look at the past puppies that have the same dam and sire ( mother and father ). To get a dog that does not go above 25 lbs, you will probably be looking at a 2nd or 3rd generation Miniature poodle mixed with a Golden Retriever, and then again mixed with other Mini - Doodle crosses and / or toy Poodles. But again, the only way to know what potential weight your dog will be at full grown is to see and talk too the owners of past puppies of the same dam and sire that you are looking to get a pup from.

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

1 Comment


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.
