GOLDEN RETRIEVER + POODLE
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.

BE AWARE though...personalities in goldendoodles vary G-R-E-A-T-L-Y by their sizes due to size of poodle mixed in to create their sizes!

Goldendoodles earn another gold star for their trainability! We rate them most trainable out of the breeds we produce. Our goldendoodles are:
- Eager to please

Again, very important to pay attention to sizes!

Medium Goldendoodle - Median Trainability
(good attention span, somewhat energetic)
Mini Goldendoodle - Least Trainable
(shorter attention span, more energetic)

Sables & Brindles
We have more to say about the colors they come in HERE!
ARE THEY GOOD WITH KIDS?
The short answer is YES, but you guessed it - it really depends on the size of the dog! These are our top recommendation for kids of all ages.
Best temperament with kids, but size can be intimidating to some kids. This size and breed is generally very patient and tolerant.
Also very good temperament with kids, especially in multi-generations where there is less mini in 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.
