When I have read about goldendoodles I don't see height standards and only mini and standard weights. Also, did 'someone' begin them? Why? When? Where? Do they have any history??? Interesting notes/facts? Now that I have Clancy, I realize that I can't really find much information. Something I didn't realize before. Has anyone else accumulated this information? Or are there just no answers to these questions - yet?

With Goldendoodles, it's rare to find anything other than an F1 or F1B. The coats become problematic beyond that, I think.
Comment by Deborah Moore on June 14, 2010 at 5:29pm
Nancy, I think goldendoodles would be easier to follow since they haven't been bred as long. :-) Most of the info for labradoodles comes from the Australian labradoodle lines started about 20+ years ago.
Personally, I think goldendoodles are furry 4-legged angels from Heaven. But I'm probably more than just a little prejudiced. :-)

Thank you, Jacquie, for the gathering and putting all of the basics of labradoodle genetics in your discussion. It is all there in one place for everyone to read and understand. I would really have appreciated being able to go to one place to get it before I got my first doodle.
Now we need WHAT IS A GOLDENDOODLE?

Jacquie, I didn't see a reply live link on your Labradoodle post, but just wanted to say thanks for posting all that info. It has excellent resources and you did a fantastic job.

I think the doodle owners here are devoted to their dogs and committed to their care and happiness. Regardless of breed, when you are taking good care of a pet, it is not cheap.

Gentle leader is the way to go-we have one for each-Sammy(32 lb) Schnauzer used to be able to pull me off the porch and so you can imagine Lizzy at 54 lbs and long ballet-strong-legs...it works for both and they are happy with them. Yes, a little more expensive but worh it-the cost again of owning a dood!

I agree with expensive grooming! A few months ago, I took to grooming Tessa myself... good and bad idea. She is so patient with me, so I am lucky for that. BUT, I know the groomers would do a MUCH better job than I can. I don't have a proper table for one. She tries to be still but it's hard for her. She's a dood and wants to wiggle around!

The groomers really brush her out. Quite frankly, my hands get sore and she gets agitated.. and after a while, it gets boring. So she never has that fresh fluffy look. Bathing nearly breaks my back, lol, but she loves the water and is wonderful about being in there. It's nice to have that time bonding. I get plenty of kisses :)

The tools I bought were pricey but I am saving over time doing it myself. I was able to spend the extra time cutting out knots and matts...line brushing.. and then clippering. End result: no more sheared Tessa! Which is awesome.

And as far as leash free? It's her favorite place.. that or the lake for a swim. I am usually there for about an hr. I love socializing with the other dog people and their fur babies :) She LOVES a good run.

Tessa is also strong and needs to walk with a gentle leader. Much more manageable with that on her face. It doesn't bug her and it makes the walk more enjoyable for all.

Ok, I'll stop blabbering now!! LOL

WE understand but the enthusiam comes from doodle owners who LOVE their sweet, gentle, lively kids. But we also know that they can be VERY expensive - grooming upwards to 100$ every 6 weeks or so, a LOT of exercise(running in the dog park at the very least). No, just a fenced in back yard will not meet all their needs. Good quality food or homemade and routine vet checkups are critical to their overall health. I recommend pet insurance, especially the wellness, which keeps a yearly check on all potential problems. For Doodles, that can develop congenital Hip displasya, the only company that provides this coverage is Embrace Pet Insurance and allows a carryover every year. I have 4 critters on it both pooches and two kitties and it's already paid for 30% of it's premium just in wellness reimbursements.-runs about 100/month for all the kids. No, I don't work for the company-had VPI before and didn't do nearly the job these folks do. Back to the point, doodles are absolutely wonderful dogs but take a lot of research and questioning before you get one. Let's not forget, it's our responsibility to care for them their ENTIRE life, not just when they are cute puppies or even look like cute adults-they take work, knowledge and caring. Enough said.
