GOLDENDOODLES

 

All three of our Goldendoodles are F1b's, and our studs are Standard Poodles, which means that ALL of our puppies will be Multi-Gen Goldendoodles. If you aren't sure what that means then you've come to the right place! Below you will find information about Goldendoodles and the difference in each generation. Please read over each one to better help you in choosing the right pet for you and/or your family.

GOLDENDOODLE BACKGROUND:

 

A Goldendoodle is a crossbreed (or "hybrid") between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. When you take a Goldendoodle and breed it back to a Poodle, you get an F1b Goldendoodle, which is what our adults are. That means they are 75% Poodle and 25% Golden Retriever, so shedding is unlikely.

 

Goldendoodles are non-purebred dogs, and they are often referred to as "designer dogs."

 

The original purpose for the Goldendoodle was an attempt to develop an allergy-friendly canine to help visually impaired individuals who suffered from canine related allergies.

 

Goldendoodles have been used moderately as guide dogs, therapy dogs, and search and rescue dogs.

 

"A Goldendoodle is a Golden Retriever and Poodle cross. Goldendoodles, also called Golden Poos, Goldie Poos, or Groodles, have been bred in North America and Australia since the early to mid-1990's. As the smaller poodle hybrids had been such a success in filling the niche for small, allergy friendly family pets, Golden Retriever breeders decided to try a breeding with a standard poodle for a larger family pet. The quick rise of the popularity of Goldendoodles is due to the dogs themselves. They are a most marvelous hybrid.

 

The term 'Goldendoodle' appeared soon after the introduction of the Labradoodle by Wally Conron. The earliest known use of the name 'Goldendoodle' comes from the Neelands family in the U.S.A. in 1992. The family started calling their dog, Sugar, a 'goldendoodle' in response to a question from a passerby who asked "is that a labradoodle?". They replied, "No, it's a goldendoodle", and have referred to her as such ever since."

GOLDENDOODLE TEMPERAMENT:

 

Goldendoodles are very intelligent, gentle, affectionate, playful animals. They are generally calm, but they are a very active breed, so they require lots of exercise. They are very loving and tend to form strong bonds with their owners, and they are great family pets. They are known to be especially well with children, and they usually get along well with other animals.
