A Goldendoodle is a cross-breed/hybrid dog obtained by breeding a golden retriever with a poodle. They are classified into types according to the breed of its parents. The name (which alters “poodle” to “doodle” in reference to the Labradoodle) was coined in 1992.

*PLEASE NOTE-As a breeder we NEVER GUARANTEE the full grown size of our puppies as they will vary, just as humans do! We provide the weights of each parent as a guideline in the likely category puppy litter may be in. We are not a puppy factory therefore we cannot predict exact adult weight. Use caution as a pet owner if you are determined your puppy will exactly fit into any one category as we DO NOT GUARANTEE size at maturity.
Goldendoodle litters come in a variety of colors and they have various types of coats. Cream, apricot, red, brown, black, and mixed coats. Wavy, straight or curly coats are common. Goldendoodles have become a very popular hybrid breed due to their low to no shed coats and are known to be allergy tolerant.
Since 2005, Goldendoodles have been moderately used as guide dogs, therapy dogs, diabetic dogs, search dogs and rescue dogs, as they have inherited the poodle’s intelligence and the golden retriever’s ease of training. Goldendoodles have also become increasingly used as domestic pets due to their affection towards families,friendliness and patience with kids and strangers.
