Breeding Allergy-Friendly, bright, gentle, loyal companions!!
To understand the greatness of the Goldendoodle, you need to understand the greatness of the English Cream Retriever & the Poodle. Whether you are looking for a family pet, a hunting dog or a service dog a Goldendoodle is for you!
English Golden Retrievers: are often cream to light golden in color, coat is thick and feathered. Blocky square head with a stocky build. Wider and shorter muzzle, shorter legs and tail. Dark brown to black round eyes, noses and pigment. English Golden's are known to have great disposition, and are calm at an early age. The Golden Retriever, with its intelligence and eager to please attitude, is one of the most popular breeds. The working ability that has made the Golden Retriever such a useful hunting companion also makes him an ideal guide, assistance, search and rescue dog. Average life span is 12 years.
Poodles originated in Germany as a water retriever. The poodle is exceptionally smart, active and excels in obedience training. The Poodle can accommodate nearly any size living quarters, making them ideal for city dwellers living in apartments and condos. Their hypoallergenic coat may reduce allergic reactions and requires regular professional grooming. Average life span is 12 years.
Goldendoodles are a Hybrid Breed, they are generally healthier and live longer than either parent. This is because they are only prone to diseases shared by BOTH parents!
You may hear the term "Hybrid Vigor":
This is a phenomenon in animal breeding that refers to the offspring from a first cross (First Generation - F1) between two unrelated breeds. This results in a healthier dog than either parent.
With each successive generation the vigor is decreased. Because of this we breed F1 Goldendoodles.
F-1 - First Generation cross of Golden Retriever and Poodle ( 50/50)
F1b - Backcross - This is an F1 pup being bred back to one of the original parent breeds (25/75)
F2 - Second generation. Result of an F1 crossed with an F1. This produces a genetically varied result, and the hybrid vigor is decreased. (50/50)
You can expect a variation of coats from puppy to puppy. Color will range from ultra cream to a toasted marshmallow color or Ultra Cream to Black & White like the Parti poodle. The coat will be fluffy during puppyhood until the adult coat develops at around one year of age. Texture of coats can also vary, commonly flat waves to soft curls. The curlier the coat, generally the less shedding.
We know you will love the versatility, the trainability and the loyalty of this loving Hybrid!!
