There are eight in this litter, we are selling one male and one female. Mom is a golden colored Standard Goldendoodle, and she weighs 65#. Dad is a red Poodle, and he weighs 55#. These will be F2 or second generation.
The Goldendoodle originated here in the states in the late '90s, the purpose was to get the personality of the Golden, which can't be beat, but with a little less of the shedding. Even though they are F2s, we will still sell them as a low shed and low allergy dog, however because of the higher percentage of Poodle they will most likely shed very little if at all and should be more tolerable for those of you with allergies. They will be better than the F1?s. They are highly intelligent, friendly and are very family oriented. They will always be ready for a good game of tug and they do love to play. Most Doodles tend to retain the retrieving instinct of the Golden. Due to their friendliness, even to strangers, they don't make the best guard dog, they love everyone. They are loyal to their family and want nothing more than to be with you. They are eager to please and want to obey. They are unbelievable with children of all ages and with other pets as well. They are social dogs and want to be around people. They do require a moderate amount of exercise, running around the house will not be enough. A good walk and some play time in the back yard or a trip to the doggie parks will work. These guys would also make an excellent jogging buddy. Due to their high intelligence and their desire to please, training should not be difficult. Let them know what it is that you want of them and they will do it. Make sure that they understand what it is that you are telling them. Always use positive praise and some treats to solidify your point. Their coat should end up being a wavy to curly and will require some care. Use a hard comb or pin brush to comb out several times a week and they will stay mat free. A trip to the groomers will help to keep them neat and tidy, probably every 8 to 10 weeks where your groomer will wash, clip, trim their nails and pluck the hair out of their ears. Poodles are known for excessive hair in their ears and if not plucked on a regular basis you will end up with ear infections. This is an excellent choice for the first time buyer and will make a wonderful addition to the family.
