GOLDEN MOUNTAIN DOODLES
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!
WHAT ARE THEY A
That's an easy one!
Golden Mountain Doodles are a combo of
WHAT SIZES DO THEY COME IN?
This is possible because of the various sizes poodles come in
Personalities vary GREATLY with the size, so be sure to read below about the personalities connected to e
* NOTE: All breeders seem to label their sizes differently! Be sure to check the expected weight with your breeder!
HOW HYPOALLERGENIC ARE THEY?
It all depends on the way they are bred and their generation. HERE is more info on generations!
It is NOT true that only F1B generations are non shedding, other generations can be just as hypoallergenic.
If you have severe allergies, we recommend more poodle backcross in your puppy.
We also offer a tee shirt test, where we'll actually send you a tee shirt that has been worn by one of our dogs who is a similar generation to what we recommend for you, just so you can have extra peace of mind.
WHAT IS ARE THEIR PERSONALITIES LIKE?
Sweet, loyal, and sometimes spicy! Golden mountain doodles are an excellent combination of the sweet silliness of the bernedoodle + the loyalty and trainability of the goldendoodle!
Golden Mountain Doodles are:
More trainable that a bernedoodle, less than a goldendoodle
Very silly, sometimes rambunctious depending on generation
Usually great for many types of people
BE AWARE though...personalities in golden mountain doodles vary G-R-E-A-T-L-Y by their sizes due to size of poodle mixed in to create their sizes!
PERSONALITY BASICS BELOW!
Less Patient, can be snappy with young kids
Best for singles, couples, or retirees with kids over 8
Often more vocal
Patient most of the time, good for kids
Great for most families who like the 'big dog' personality but are intimidated by the size
Moderate activity level
Most patient size, great for kids
Excellent match for nearly any family
Lower activity level
HOW TRAINABLE ARE THEY?
Golden Mountain Doodles are easier to train than most dogs due to their poodle and golden retriever ancestry, but can struggle with a few things from their bernese side:
- Can be stubborn
- Motivated by their own desires
- Shorter attention span
Again, very important to pay attention to sizes!
Standard Golden Mtn Doodle - Most Trainable
(best attention span, least energetic -)
Medium Golden Mtn Doodle - Median Trainability
(good attention span, somewhat energetic)
Mini Golden Mtn Doodle- Least Trainable
(shorter attention span, more energetic)
WHAT COLORS DO THEY COME IN?
Golden mountain doodles come in a huge variety of colors that include all of the below:
Sables & Brindles
We have more to say about the colors they come in HERE!
ARE THEY GOOD WITH KIDS?
Golden Mountain Doodles are generally good with kids, but sometimes don't understand how big & rambunctious they are, which makes them difficult pets for younger, more 'fragile' children who can be knocked over easily.
Best temperament with kids, but size can be intimidating to some kids. This size and breed is generally very tolerant, but not super aware of their own bodies.
Likely the best temperament for kids in the bernedoodle realm as they are not quite as large, and still have a good level of playfulness to them.
Generally not the best match for younger kids due to being less patient and tolerant of the activity & noise level that kids can produce along with children sometimes not understanding a dog's boundaries.
GOLDEN MOUNTAIN DOODLE SUCCESS STORIES
THE KOLES FAMILY & "BETTY"
We had the best experience with Jenna Lee. Our Golden Mountain Doodle, Betty White, is absolutely everything we’ve ever wanted in a family dog. She is sweet, cuddly, adorable, well-balanced and so fun to be around. She completed the 4-week training program which made our life so much easier when she came home given that we have little kids! Jenna Lee’s staff was easy to work with, and we are all over the moon for Betty!

THE DUCA FAMILY
JennaLee Designer Doodles was amazing to work with to find our perfect pup! I say work with because they truly become a partner in helping you figure out what is best for you and also what is best for each puppy. I love their matching process because it led us to a pup that we may not have considered but who turns out to be just want we wanted and perfect for our family.

AMBER & "WAFFLES"
"I can’t say enough good things about JennaLee Designer doodles. We looked for several breeders in our state before landing on JennaLee and deciding they were worth the drive! We were impressed at the questionnaire and phone discussion required before putting down a deposit. This ensures that you are able to find the exact right doodle for your family. They helped steer us to a golden mountain doodle-a breed we didn’t even know existed! We adore our Waffles!"
