About the Goldendoodle!
The Goldendoodle is a hybrid dog resulting in the breeding of a Poodle and a Golden Retriever. They were first developed in the 1990s and are becoming increasingly popular for many reasons.
The Goldendoodle is a very lovable dog known for it's exceptional intelligence and trainability,low to non shedding coat and low to no doggie odour. Goldendoodles are social, friendly, non aggresive and extremely intuitive. Their intelligence and high trainability make them well suited for therapy and guide dogs. Their gentle nature also makes them exceptional family pets.
Goldendoodles will thrive in both city and country settings. Goldendoodles do not do well being isolated from the family and thrive when they are in contact with the people they love, therefore they do best living in our homes as part of the family.
Goldendoodles are light to non-shedders. They require a weekly comb outs and will need to see a groomer every 6-8 weeks to have their hair clipped.
Goldendoodles are generally healthy, but like all breeds. they can be prone to certain health conditions.
When choosing a breeder it is very important to choose one who does health testing on their breeding dogs. Seeing a veterinarian and "given a good bill of health" is only what veterinarians can see from observation. Good reputable breeders do health screening to look for genetic diseases such as having x-rays taken on hips and elbows to check for dysplasia, have heart and knee exams done as well as eye tests done with a specialist.
The puppy advertised online in the classified section could cost you thousands of dollars more because of hereditary health conditions that may have been preventable through proper screening.
You are paying for a heathy, happy, loving pet and we want your puppy to be healthy and happy for many years to come. We as breeders want to do our part to make sure that happens! <3
