All About Goldendoodle Puppies

What Are Goldendoodles?

A Goldendoodle is a mix between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle.

The Perfect Pet for All Ages

Goldendoodles are a hybrid breed of hypoallergenic dogs that have become increasingly popular in the last few years. They are a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, combining the best traits of both breeds. Goldendoodles are known for being smart, loyal, amicable, and hypoallergenic.

These lovable dogs can have different coat colors, textures, and lengths depending on the genes they inherit from their parents. They are generally low-maintenance when it comes to grooming, making them the perfect pet for busy families. Goldendoodles also tend to have great temperaments with both people and other animals.

Goldendoodle puppies are incredibly intelligent and eager to learn. With a love to please their owners, they are easy to train and have a knack for picking up commands quickly. Their brilliance makes them great at problem solving and agility activities, making them the perfect companion for active lifestyles.

Goldendoodles also make excellent therapy dogs due to their friendly disposition and their ability to give unconditional love. Whether you are looking for a companion for yourself or your family, Goldendoodles are sure to be the perfect addition!

These amazing animals can provide companionship, humor, and joy in anyone’s life. With their intelligence and devotion, they make the perfect pet for everyone, from seniors needing some extra love to active families looking for an energetic and loyal pal. So, if you are looking for the perfect pet, consider a Goldendoodle. You won’t regret it!

Health Benefits of Owning A Goldendoodle

As well as being incredibly bright and true-hearted companions, Goldendoodles are also known for their excellent health. Due to hybrid vigor, they tend to be free from many of the genetic diseases common in purebreds. In addition, they have low-shedding coats that make them hypoallergenic and ideal for people with allergies.

Because Goldendoodle puppies are very active and need plenty of exercise to stay healthy, they are the perfect choice of pet for families who enjoy spending time outdoors or going on trips. Goldendoodles will happily join along on any adventure!

Owning a Goldendoodle can also be an incredibly beneficial experience for children. These pups are known to have a calming effect on children and can help improve their social skills, empathy, and overall emotional well-being.

Invest in Quality Care for Your Goldendoodle

Once you have adopted your Goldendoodle, it is important to provide them with the best care possible. This includes regular checkups at the vet, providing them with high-quality food and treats, and making sure they get plenty of exercise and playtime.

You should also invest in quality grooming products to help keep your pup’s coat looking healthy and shiny. This includes brushing them regularly, bathing them as needed, and trimming their nails when necessary.
Taking care of a Goldendoodle isn’t all that hard once you know what needs to be done. With a little bit of care and attention, your Goldendoodle will be the happiest pup around!

Whether you are looking for a companion or just want to add some extra love to your home, adopting a Goldendoodle is always a great choice. These lovable pups are sure to bring you and your family years of joy and laughter. So, if you are ready to take on the responsibility of a furry companion, consider adopting a Goldendoodle today!

Goldendoodle Facts

  • Goldendoodles are 50% Golden Retriever and 50% Poodle (F1) or 25% Golden Retriever and 75% Poodle (F1b).
  • Goldendoodle puppies come in a variety of colors. Their smooth, medium-length, wavy coat is silky to the touch. The dominant colors usually come in english cream, caramel, apricot, red, black, or tan. Because of the Poodle, sable can also be a possible color of the Goldendoodle.
  • Goldendoodles have more endurance.

Healthier genetics and longer lifespan

Hybrid vigor greatly helps the overall health and quality of life of a Goldendoodle compared to that of a Golden Retriever or Poodle. Healthier dogs also tend to live longer.

Hybrid Dog Breeds

Hybrid breeds, which are created by crossing two purebred dogs, are becoming increasingly popular. There are many benefits to owning a hybrid pup. If you are considering getting one, here is what you need to know.

The most obvious benefit is that hybrids tend to be healthier than purebred dogs. This is because they have a wider gene pool, which helps to make them less prone to genetic disease and other health problems. Hybrids also tend to be more resilient and live longer than their purebred counterparts.

Hybrids often inherit the best qualities of both parent breeds, making them wonderfully unique creatures with an interesting blend of features. They tend to be smarter, more trainable and often have a better temperament than purebreds.

Hybrid dogs can also be easier to find than purebreds, as they are not typically as much in demand. This makes them cheaper and more accessible for potential owners, particularly those looking for an unusual or rare mix.

In conclusion, hybrid breeds can be wonderful companions for all kinds of owners. With their intelligence, loyalty and health benefits, it’s easy to see why they are becoming increasingly popular. If you are looking for a unique pup with lots of love and personality, then a hybrid could be the perfect match for you.

No matter what breed you choose, there is no doubt that having a pet can bring a lot of joy and happiness to your life. So why not consider getting a hybrid dog today? You won’t regret it!

A Message from Best Goldendoodles’ Founder

A Goldendoodle is an excellent dog, but not right for everyone. Owning a Goldendoodle or mini Goldendoodle puppy takes time and money. If you don’t have the time or the money to invest in a dog (Goldendoodle or otherwise), then you probably shouldn’t be considering one. For someone willing to invest some time and money, a Goldendoodle or mini Goldendoodle pup are a great choice for many people.

A good friend of mine who absolutely loves his Goldendoodle once told me that Goldendoodles are “the Cadillac of large dogs.” He said, “You can buy yourself a Chevy if you want, and it may get the job done. . . but it’s not a Cadillac.”

He continued, “People can get a Lab, a Boxer, or a Doberman if they want. . . but it’s not a Goldendoodle.” He was obviously biased towards Goldendoodles (as am I), but there are several reasons why Goldendoodles and mini Goldendoodles have become the most popular designer dogs and are considered to be the Cadillac of the dog world by some people.

Our best Goldendoodle breeders’ philosophy behind Goldendoodle puppies differs from many other breeders’ philosophy. You can read horror stories about puppy mills with dozens of stacked boxes packed with sickly dogs who never see the light of day. Sadly, Goldendoodle puppies, Labradoodles, and other designer dogs are hot commodities for the puppy mills.

Fortunately, many states are cracking down on these cruel puppy mills where some owners have become rich off the poor dogs they keep in deplorable conditions. If you see a Goldendoodle puppy, mini Goldendoodle puppy (or any desirable dog breed) for an extremely low price, you should look into it carefully.

Often puppy mills ship their dogs through internet purchases for low prices to unsuspecting buyers who never even consider visiting the place they got their puppy from. You should be very wary of online puppy stores. We are excited to be a part of the Crockett Doodles network. Crockett Doodles is one of the rare breeders who has an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau and who has hundreds of five star independent reviews on their Facebook page and their Better Business Bureau (BBB) review section.

Many reputable Goldendoodle puppy breeders rightly condemn the deplorable practices of puppy mills but have 14-18 dogs themselves. When a website lists multiple Doodle “moms” and several Doodle “dads,” you need to ask yourself if these Goldendoodles are really treated as pets. Where would you keep 18 dogs? If you think about it, it is understandable why someone who breeds Goldendoodles for a living would find it necessary to have so many dogs. They need to put food on the table and provide for their family.

I also understand why some Goldendoodle and mini Goldendoodle puppy breeders would try to convince you that you need their particular breed. If someone has a Goldendoodle kennel outback with 18 barking dogs, and they have 30-50 puppies available at any time for adoption, of course, they will be desperate to sell you a puppy, and of course you won’t be placed on a Goldendoodle waiting list.

I am not a full-time Goldendoodle breeder. I am a professor at a private Christian liberal arts university (BJU), and my wife is an events coordinator (and primarily a mother). Our goal is to match our standard Goldendoodle puppies and mini Goldendoodle puppies with well-matched families as puppies are available.

A great dog (Goldendoodle or otherwise) depends largely on nature and nurture. You want a standard Goldendoodle or mini Goldendoodle with the best possible genetic foundation, and you want to provide that Doodle with structure and balanced training.

Hopefully the breeder you get a Goldendoodle puppy from has done some homework to help you with the nature part of the equation. As the new Goldendoodle puppy owner, it’s up to you to provide the nurture.

We acquired an outstanding Goldendoodle and a great Standard Poodle from totally different breeding lines hoping to provide our Doodle puppies with healthy genetic lines. We are confident enough in the genetic nature of our puppies that we offer a health guarantee.

Many people wonder whether or not Goldendoodles are hypoallergenic. Although no type of dog can be guaranteed as completely non-allergenic, the likelihood of a dog irritating someone’s allergies is directly linked to a non-shedding coat. The greatest advantage of a F1b Goldendoodle is its incredibly strong potential for a non-shedding Poodle coat.

The non-shedding coats of F1b Goldendoodles and mini Goldendoodles make them highly desirable (compared to F1 Doodles). Although most f1b Goldendoodles do not shed (or shed very little), it is impossible to guarantee that any dog (even Goldendoodles) will not shed at all.

If you do your research and determine that a Goldendoodle or mini Goldendoodle is the right match for your family, please contact us to see if we can help match you with the perfect puppy.

We offer many “extras” with each of our Goldendoodle puppies. Our desire is for the new Goldendoodle family to have the best experience possible. By helping you get the best possible supplies for your Goldendoodle or mini Goldendoodle puppy, we help make the Goldendoodle’s new home a seamless transition.

We have been overwhelmed by the demand for quality dogs. We try to be completely fair in how we handle requests, even when dealing with celebrities.

Although based in the Greenville/Spartanburg area, most of our Goldendoodle families come from Charlotte and Asheville, NC or Charleston and Hilton Head Island, SC.

However, it is not unusual for us to have interested Goldendoodle and mini Goldendoodle families from Clemson / Columbia / Myrtle Beach(SC), Raleigh-Durham / Greensboro / Fayetteville / Winston-Salem (NC), Knoxville / Nashville / Memphis (TN), Atlanta / Athens (GA), Lexington / Louisville (KY), Virginia Beach / Richmond / Chesapeake (VA), Jacksonville / Orlando (FL), Chicago (IL), Indianapolis (IN), Baltimore (MD), and Birmingham (AL).

We are always surprised when Goldendoodle families contact us from Los Angeles, NYC, St. Louis, Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Houston, and Phoenix. Crockett Doodles has a personal delivery service that personally transports pups anywhere in the continental United States.

The commitment of families to travel from all over the U.S. to our Greenville, SC, location shows us the quality of family that we match our puppies with. We appreciate families that understand that a Goldendoodle puppy is a multi-year (hopefully 15 or so) commitment, and worth some effort.
