About Goldendoodles

Goldendoodles are a mix between a purebred Golden Retriver and a purebred Poodle. They’re known for their intelligent, lovable and active personalities. We currently raise F1 Goldendoodle in  standard size.

Size

Goldendoodles come in several shapes and sizes. Currently The Doodle Tribe breeds standard size Goldendoodles. Standard size goldendoodles weigh between 50 to 65+ lbs and average between 20 to 24 inches tall at the shoulder. Goldendoodles usually reach their full height around 12 months, and can spend the next 6-12 months filling out to their full weight.

Female Goldendoodles tend to be slightly shorter and lighter than male Goldendoodles. Goldendoodles have a life expectancy of 10-15 years.

Coat

Goldendoodles inherit hypoallergenic coats from their Poodle parent. Goldendoodles are considered low to non-shedding, and make great pets for people who suffer from pet allergies.

Goldendoodle coats can range from the tighter curls of a poodle to the straight hair of a golden retriever. The curlier their coat the less your Goldendoodle will shed. Most groomers recommend that you keep your Goldendoodle’s coat at a medium length of 2-3 inches. This may vary depending on the type of coat your Goldendoodle has and how often they are groomed. Their coat tends to be a little longer on the body and shorter on the head and snout naturally. Some Goldendoodles even have a feathery coat texture on their legs.

You should regularly brush your Goldendoodle to help collect the loose hair from their coat and keep it free of matting. Brushing daily is best, but if that isn’t possible, you should make sure to brush them at least three times a week. A slicker brush is perfect for separating the hair and making sure you are keeping your Goldendoodle in great shape. Some owners prefer to take their Goldendoodle to the groomer every 6-8 weeks to get a trim, while others prefer to do it themselves at home.

Goldendoodles should be bathed when they are dirty or start to smell, but you should avoid bathing them too often. Frequent, unnecessary baths can strip them of their natural oils and cause itchy skin. After their bath, make sure you rub them down with a towel and allow them to fully dry before attempting any other grooming.

Appearance

While the name Goldendoodle suggests that most puppies are a golden color, Goldendoodles actually come in a variety of colors, often inherited from their Poodle parent. The most common colors for a Goldendoodle include cream, chocolate, black, red, white, and apricot. Some Goldendoodles even have patterned fur, including bicolor, merle, and brindle patterns. Goldendoodle feathering is often very light or white and their coats tend to lighten with age. Regardless of what color your Goldendoodle is, everyone is sure to agree that your Goldendoodle puppy is beautiful!

Temperment

Goldendoodles are extremely friendly dogs, which makes them great for families that want a pet! They inherit a very gentle and loving nature from their Golden Retriever parent, making them ideal for families with small children or other pets. They are incredibly loyal and love to make new friends, both with humans and other animals. You’ll find your Goldendoodle basically considers themselves to be another member of your family, so they are happiest when they are with you. Goldendoodles tend to not bark much at all. Goldendoodles are fairly laid-back, which makes them a great dog for new dog owners.

Training

Goldendoodles have the benefit of coming from two breeds that are consistently ranked as highly intelligent, which means they are very easy to train. Their lack of aggression and eager to please demeanor also help owners teach them the basics with the help of positive reinforcement. Don’t be afraid to start them young! Goldendoodles are perfect for the new dog owner who may be a little afraid of training their new puppy.

While not gigantic, Goldendoodles are classified as large dogs, so you should make sure to teach them the basics, such as walking next to you on the leash. This will prevent them from pulling on the leash when they reach their full size. They also benefit from crate training. Because of their intelligence, Goldendoodles are great at learning tricks and performing skills. Once your Goldendoodle puppy has master obedience, you can start teaching them all the fun things you can dream up!

Lifestyle & Exercise

Goldendoodles require at least 20-30 minutes of good exercise every day. Goldendoodles tend to love being active with their owners, which makes hiking, walking, and playing fetch or tug great options to help them work off some energy. Some Goldendoodles even like to go swimming, so consider introducing a paddling pool if you live somewhere with hot summer days. Properly socialized Goldendoodles will also enjoy visiting the dog park and interacting with other dogs there. Goldendoodles are also very agile, so if you enjoy training, consider setting up a skills course and teaching them to go through it!

Goldendoodles love their families, and they function best living indoors, not in a kennel or other majority outside space. That being said, they also need room to stretch their legs, so it is best to make sure you have a fenced yard they can play in.

Full-grown Goldendoodles eat 1-4 cups of food a day, depending on their size and activity level. This should generally be split into a few meal times during the day to prevent overeating or bloating.
