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.

F1BB is a poodle with an F1B goldendoodle

F2B is an F1 and an F1B goldendoodle
Puppies F2 and beyond are considered Multi-Gens (multi-generation). We primarily breed Multi-Gens with a majority of our litters in order to consistently achieve the desirable low-no shed and wavy coats. They also tend to be more tolerable with allergy sufferers.
Goldendoodles mature in various sizes from Petite to Standard. We do not have breed standard “labels” with a mixed breed dog. Size labels vary breeder to breeder. Therefore we suggest referring to the size of the breeding parents when projecting possible mature size. Puppies can grow to be smaller or just a bit bigger than their parents, every puppy is an individual.
*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. Please note…coat genetics must be matched properly with parents to achieve these desirable traits.
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 children and strangers.
The Goldendoodle is a very popular hybrid breed that is often being bred poorly and without regard to health testing and proper coat genetics. They can fetch high price tags and have little to support the health, coats or quality breeding program in which they are raised. This issue is exactly why we built our breeding program. Timber Rock Doodles foundation is strongly based on full health testing of each of our breeding dogs, thorough consideration to their color/coat genetics and a desire to better the breed.
