By being on the deposit list you will be notified FIRST when a litter is bred via email. You will then get the opportunity to be added to that wait list. Add the end of that week families will be added to the wait list in order of when their deposit was received. After that, families will be added to the list on a first come first serve basis. When the litter is born, we will let them families know if a puppy will be available to them or not. Families remain on the general deposit list until they are matched with their puppy.

What to Know about Mini Goldendoodles

The happiest dog owners have dogs that match their lifestyle and expectations.

Making sure your new puppy is compatible with your family dynamic is critical, then everyone wins. If you're interested in a mini goldendoodle, read on for more info about this popular breed.
What is a Mini goldendoodle?
In a nutshell, a mini goldendoodle is a cross between a mini poodle and a golden retriever. Ours are bred down through a few generations to ensure the best temperaments and health that can be achieved. Poodles are known for their lack of shedding, and golden retrievers are known for their great personalities. That makes for an awesome combination!
What Kind of Personality Do They Have?
This breed is family-friendly, energetic, loyal, and affectionate. Mini goldendoodles are intelligent and love to please their owners. They can be a bit more high energy and ambitious, which makes them both easy and difficult to train. If you have younger children, we suggest a larger dog that may be a bit more patient. Socialization is essential to this breed, and they will benefit from a good puppy-training program, which we have options for HERE.
What Colors Are Available?
While we endorse picking puppies based on personality over color alone, we also specialize in rare coat colors, including phantom, merle, parti, combo, and solid. Many families like a smaller dog, and the mini goldendoodle fits that bill. They range in height from 13 to 16 inches and weigh between 15 and 30 pounds.
Shedding info: Because this breed is crossed with a poodle, they are hypoallergenic and shed less. Our team tests the dogs for the least amount of shedding possible. If shedding is a concern, please discuss your needs with us, and we will be happy to pair you with a litter that meets your allergy needs.
Mini Goldendoodle Owner Tips
Mini goldendoodles should have regular exercise and playtime to keep them happy and out of mischief. They also often love to go swimming! Socializing with people and other pets while your puppy is young is crucial for a well-behaved adult dog. Mini goldendoodles are a healthy breed and usually live between 10 and 15 years.
Each family has different training needs. We offer different types of training from a three-week puppy preschool through fully trained doodles.
As with all puppies, mini goldendoodles do need regular healthcare. With all health conditions including these, call your veterinarian if symptoms get worse. Your puppy depends on you to take the best care possible. These are a few common health issues:
Skin: Dogs get skin irritation for different reasons. If they lick, chew, or scratch, it may be due to fleas, insect bites, poor grooming, allergies, or even boredom. These can turn into skin sores called 'hot spots', which are painful and can become infected if not dealt with properly. Clean and dry the hot spots with mild soap and warm water. Also, do your best to keep your dog from licking, chewing, or scratching the area. Easier said than done, right? We suggest an e-collar or 'the cone of shame' - or even an old t-shirt worn over the sore.
Ear infections: Unfortunately, dogs with floppy ears are prone to ear infections. Moisture and overgrowth of hair in the ear canal are the culprits. Some of the signs include discharge, swelling, redness, and foul odor. You can try an over-the-counter ear wash. However, ear infections can get quite severe if not treated eagerly enough. Call your veterinarian if it gets worse.
Digestive: Doodles are known for sensitive stomachs! Many things can cause an upset stomach – anything from getting into household chemicals to eating solid objects. For vomiting, try small amounts of bland food (try boiled chicken and white rice!) to see if that helps. If your puppy is vomiting blood, or it continues for 24 to 48 hours, call your veterinarian right away.
Mini Goldendoodle Adoption Process
To start the adoption process, fill out our puppy adoption application on our website. The application addresses such things as your lifestyle and accommodations for your new pup.
If you're approved, you'll need to put a $500 deposit down to hold your space. The deposit is non-refundable, but you can transfer it to a different litter if you choose. We'll send you email updates as soon as your puppy's mom is bred, confirmed pregnant, and has her litter so you can enjoy the excitemet with us all the way through! When the puppies are born, you'll get all the details of the litter.
Here's the really fun part! When the puppies are six weeks old, you'll be invited to our picking party! You can come and meet the puppies, and rank the puppies that most interest you. We'll use your rank in the deposit list and your favorite puppies to match you, and you'll be able to take your puppy home at eight weeks old. Our F.A.Q. page has more details.
We have a very active Facebook page. There are literally thousands of photos on this page, along with videos, info, and reviews about JLDD. Check it out for the latest info.

Mini goldendoodles are a wonderful breed for families with older kids. But, before deciding which puppy you want, make sure you're ready. Puppies are a big commitment that require a lot of patience, love and care! However, when you do go ahead with adoption, your dog will reward you more unconditional love than you can handle!
