We suggest that you do not take your puppy anywhere public including parks unltil he has had 3 or 4 vaccinations. Also, hold puppy at the vet office, many sick animals have been there.--We are very careful not to have sicknesses brought to our farm. Having never had parvo here, ever, please be respectful not to visit us after you have looked at puppies at people's homes, a pet store or shelter. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

We believe that the best way to produce a healthy mini or toy doodle is to take the time to slowly breed the size down. We never breed a large lab or golden to a toy poodle as it is not best for bone structure and basic confirmation. It is much quicker and therefore cheaper but not a practice we take part in. Our little dooodles are 2nd or 3rd generations down from the original 50-70 lb ancestors never having more than 15 lbs between parents. .
Country of Origin: The Goldendoodle is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, a cross that originated in North America in the late 1990’s. Poodle crossbreeds are meant to produce a dog with mixed traits and the Poodle’s signature nonshedding coat. Like all Poodle crosses, the Goldendoodle goes by many names, including the ‘Goldipoo’, ‘Goldenpoo’, ‘Groodle’, ‘Curly Golden’, ‘Goldenoodle’, ‘Goldoodle’, or the somewhat less appealing ‘Gopoo’. Like other ‘designer breeds’, the Goldendoodle has seen a recent surge in popularity. As a crossbreed, the Goldendoodle is not eligible for registration with purebred registries such as the American Kennel Club, but it can be registered with the American Canine Hybrid Club. The Goldendoodle is not considered a purebred because it doesn’t ‘breed true’, meaning that it doesn’t display a consistent set of characteristics. Some breeders produce Goldendoodles by crossing a purebred Poodle with a purebred Golden Retriever (called a first generation cross), but others allow crossing Goldendoodles with Poodles or Golden Retrievers (called a backcross), or other Goldendoodles (called a multi-generation cross). Different crosses can result in different characteristics.
Size: The Goldendoodle has an average shoulder height of 20-29 in (51-74 cm) and weighs 45-90 lbs (20-40 kg); mixes with Miniature Poodles or Toy Poodles tend to be smaller. As a crossbreed, the Goldendoodle has a wide variety of appearances. Those with more Poodle influence tend to have a thinner coat and shorter muzzle, whereas the Golden Retriever influence results in a wider neck, and longer muzzle. Goldendoodles can have short or long ears; most have a ‘V’-shaped ridge from the forehead to the nose.
Coat: The Goldendoodle’s coat is a cross between the Golden Retriever and Poodle coat. It has fine hairs which appear quite thick. It can be curly or straight, most fall somewhere in the middle. Unclipped, the hair will grow about 4-7 in in length. Unlike the Poodle, the Goldendoodle should not be clipped any shorter than 2 in, as the coat provides natural protection in heat and cold. Depending on the Poodle influence, the Goldendoodle can come in a wide variety of colors including white, tan, chocolate, black, red, silver, or a mix thereof. A variety of colors and coat textures can appear in the same litter. Depending on the source breeds, the Goldendoodle may shed little to none like the Poodle or shed moderately like the Golden Retriever. . Most Poodle crosses will go through various coat phases in their first year of life.
Character: The Goldendoodle is intelligent, friendly, and family oriented. It is a highly social dog. Goldendoodles tend to follow their nose wherever it leads, so a fenced-in yard is recommended. They are always ready for a game; most Goldendoodles retain the natural retrieving instincts of the Golden Retriever. The Goldendoodle’s friendliness with strangers makes it a poor watchdog. Goldendoodles do not bark frequently.
Temperament: Goldendoodles love to be with their family. They are eager to please and get along well with children, other animals, and strangers. They are social dogs and crave being around people.
Care: The Goldendoodle requires regular brushing or combing every few weeks. Goldendoodles have a lifespan of 9-15 years. They may have health issues affecting Golden Retrievers and Poodles, including hip dysplasia (malformed hip joint which can cause lameness or arthritis), ear infections (particularly for longer-eared dogs) and eye problems such as cataracts, but as a mixed breed they are somewhat less likely to suffer health problems than purebreds (known as ‘hybrid vigor’).
Training: The Goldendoodle is intelligent and has a strong desire to please its master, making it highly trainable. Positive reinforcement is likely to be the most successful approach.
Activity: The Goldendoodle requires a moderate amount of exercise. Most enjoy swimming as both the Poodle and Golden Retriever are not averse to water. Goldendoodles can live happily on a farm or in a big city. They will thrive with daily walks or play time
Boy or Girl???
This would be true for both the great danes and doodles:
Our family prefers the boys in most cases.
Girls tend to be cleaner, a little less laid back, more protective, smaller
Boys tend to be more laid back, goofier, bigger, sweeter, messier
Time magazine named the labradoodle the #1 dog because of it's laid back super sweet temperment and low to no shed coat...we couldn't agree more as long as you include the goldendoodle!!
**We only breed 2nd - 3rd generation doodles as their coats are less likely to shed, the curls are softer and more beautiful than the 1st generation puppies. Goldendoodles are the exception as their coats are nice even in 1st generation puppies.
Country of Origin: The Labradoodle is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and Standard or Miniature Poodle. It was first bred in Australia in 1989 by breeder Wally Conron, who sought to create a dog with the Labrador’s characteristic obedience and versatility and the Poodle’s hypoallergenic coat. As a crossbreed, the Labradoodle can be registered with the American Canine Hybrid Club. Some breeders produce Labradoodles by crossing a purebred Poodle with a purebred Labrador Retriever (called a first generation cross), but others allow crossing Labradoodles with Poodles or Labrador Retrievers (called a backcross), or other Labradoodles (called a multi-generation cross). Different crosses can result in different characteristics. Like other ‘designer breeds’, the Labradoodle has seen a recent surge in popularity. These lovable dogs have become popular with many individuals, celebrity and everyman alike. Labradoodles have found their way into the homes of Tiger Woods, Jennifer Aniston, and Barbara Eden, star of I Dream of Jeannie, whose Labradoodle ‘Djinn Djinn’ was named after her invisible dog on the show. Other trends demonstrating the popularity of the Labradoodle are the inclusion of the word ‘Labradoodle’ in the Oxford English Dictionary, a Labradoodle figurine in the ‘Here and Now’ edition of Monopoly, and the award winning ‘Lucky the Incredible Wonder Pup’ Labradoodle animated toy.
Size: The Labradoodle has an average shoulder height of 13-26 in (33-66 cm) and weighs 22-88 lbs (10-40 kg). Labradoodles resulting from crosses with Toy Poodles are smaller than those resulting from crosses with Miniature or Standard Poodles. As a crossbreed, the Labradoodle may have a wide variety of features, but typical features are those listed in the Australian Labradoodle standard: a broad head with medium stop (depression where the muzzle meets the forehead), wide set eyes, flat ears level with the eyes, scissors bit, large nose, low set tail, and body slightly longer than tall.
Coat: Due to the Poodle influence, the Labradoodle may have a wide variety of coats. The Labradoodle coat may be wiry or soft, straight or curly, or anywhere in between. There are a wide variety of possible Labradoodle colors, including white, cream, red, brown, black, and gold. First generation crosses shed lightly with a wispy hair coat, Second generation Labradoodles of primarily Poodle mixture are nonshedding with a fleece textured coat or hair coat, and higher generation Labradoodles are nonshedding with a fleece textured coat. The Australian variety is non-shedding with a fleece or wool textured coat.
Character: The Labradoodle is friendly, family oriented, and lively. It is very clever, perky, and funny. Labradoodles love their family and are highly loyal. The Labradoodle will try to get away with mischief if its owner doesn’t keep it in line.
Temperament: Labradoodles are friendly with dogs, other pets and children. They are affectionate with strangers and do not make good watchdogs.
Care: The Labradoodle requires monthly brushing to keep the coat free of tangles, more often for curly coats. The Labradoodle has a lifespan of 13-15 years. It may be susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia (malformed joints which can cause lameness or arthritis) and PRA, a retinal disorder, but as a mixed breed it is less likely to suffer health problems than purebreds (known as ‘hybrid vigor’).
Training: The Labradoodle is intelligent and eager to please, making it straightforward to train. Labradoodles are able to learn a wide variety of unusual tricks. Labradoodles may attempt to outsmart their owners when they see an opportunity.
Activity: Labradoodles require a moderate amount of exercise such as a daily walk or playtime in a fenced-in yard. Most are fond of swimming, like their parent breeds. The Labradoodle is well suited to apartment life.
