Pride & Prejudoodles: Find the Dog of Your Dreams
Grow your family with one of our adorable, hypoallergenic, trained dogs in Maryland.
If you’re looking for a friendly, enthusiastic dog that’s easy to train, then goldendoodles fit the bill. Originally bred to be guide dogs, these canines quickly grew in popularity thanks to their easygoing temperaments and affectionate natures. Today, they serve as therapy dogs, hunting companions and, of course, family pets.
Goldendoodles are a cross between two popular purebreds: poodles and golden retrievers. Many of them inherit the low-shedding, hypoallergenic coats of their poodle parent and the distinguishable golden color of their golden retriever parent. As a medium-large dog breed, goldendoodles generally range from 15 to 20 inches in height and 30 to 50 pounds in weight. They benefit from at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, which makes them suitable for more active households.
Like all dogs, goldendoodles require a high-quality diet that consists of plenty of proteins and fats. They’re also susceptible to hip dysplasia and eye problems, which means it’s important to keep up with regular vet appointments. When taken care of, the average goldendoodle can enjoy a happy, healthy life of up to 20 years.
In 1989, a breeder wondered what would happen if they combined the genetic material of a poodle and a Labrador retriever. The result was a loyal companion dog that retained the intelligence of poodles and the affectionate nature of Labrador retrievers. Their playful, trusting personalities, coupled with their eagerness to please their owners, make labradoodles popular family pets.
Labradoodles are medium-large dogs and range anywhere from 20 to 25 inches in height and 50 to 65 pounds in weight. However, some labradoodles are bred with mini poodles instead — these dogs, dubbed mini labradoodles, are usually just 15 inches tall and weigh between 15 and 25 pounds. Whether you have a mini labradoodle or a large one, you can bet they’ll have tons of energy during the day. Most labradoodles will need to work off this energy with at least 30 to 60 minutes of exercise. They also enjoy spending time with people and get along with just about anyone, from young children to fellow dogs.
Labradoodles are more susceptible to the health issues commonly found in their parents, such as hip and elbow dysplasia, so it’s important they see the vet regularly. Provided their needs are met, these cuddly canines can live up to 14 years.
When it comes to sociable, smart and loving dogs, you can’t go wrong with a cockapoo. Bred to serve as companion dogs, these sweet canines have the intelligence of poodles and the friendliness of cocker spaniels. Thanks to their playful personalities, endless curiosity and eagerness to please, you can trust a cockapoo to provide you with endless entertainment.
There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to cockapoos. You can find this unique dog in a wide variety of sizes and colors — one cockapoo might sport a light brown coat and measure at under 10 inches, while another may have dotted black-and-white fur and stand over 16 inches tall. No matter what they look like, most cockapoos have low-shedding, hypoallergenic coats (thanks to their poodle parentage). Generally, cockapoos are small-medium dogs and benefit from a minimum of 15 minutes of daily exercise. When trained, they’re usually well-behaved and can be left home alone for up to eight hours at a time.
It’s important to cater to your cockapoo’s health needs, as this breed is more vulnerable to ear, eye, hip and knee issues. Most cockapoos have an average lifespan of about 15 years, which they love to spend with their favorite humans.
WHY WE TRAIN YOUR PUPPIES FOR YOU
BENEFITS OF HYPOALLERGENIC BREEDS
PUPPIES TRAINED BY PROFESSIONAL TRAINERS
PUPPIES WITH TRAINING
The key to a happy, fulfilling life with your dog is proper training. Not only does training encourage your dog to listen to you, but it also promotes their health and well-being. At Pride & Prejudoodles, all our dogs spend three months with a certified dog trainer. This is ideal if you:
- Have a busy work schedule
- Have familial commitments
- Have family members with health concerns or special needs
Our mission is to help you skip past those difficult dog behavior stages (such as teething and potty training) and enjoy a respectful, well-behaved pet from the get-go.
When dogs shed, they release a protein called dander, which is known to cause symptoms in allergy sufferers (such as coughing, wheezing and rashes). While no dog is 100% allergen-free, some breeds are low-shedding and thus better suited for people with allergies.
Although a dog breed may be labeled as hypoallergenic, there’s no guarantee that every member of that breed is actually allergen-free. That’s why it’s important to go with a reputable, hypoallergenic breeder. At Pride & Prejudoodles, all our puppies are hand-picked based on our high health, coat and temperament standards. Through coat testing, we can guarantee that each one of our dogs is low-shedding.
At Pride & Prejudoodles, we offer professional training to optimize dog behavior and help you get the most out of your relationship with your puppy. Our training includes:
- Housebreaking: Our dogs can go at least three hours a day without potty breaks and are crated for up to nine hours at night.
- Obedience commands: Our puppies are trained to understand most basic obedience commands, including “sit,” “down” and “come.”
- Socialization: We introduce our dogs to different environments and encourage them to socialize with other canines.
Thanks to our comprehensive training, you can expect an ideal puppy, your new best friend, to assimilate smoothly into your household.

We wouldn’t be able to deliver trained, health-tested, non-shedding puppies if it weren’t for the dedication of our team. The people behind Pride & Prejudoodles work tirelessly to ensure every one of our dogs is 100% ready for a new home. From testing and training the dogs to facilitating the adoption process, everyone plays a valuable role here.
When Joshua and Kelsey first met, they bonded over two things: a love for dogs and Jane Austen novels.

With a family of their own, Joshua and Kelsey understand the value a dog brings to a household. That’s why they’re committed to helping families across Maryland find healthy, hypoallergenic dogs that fit seamlessly into their homes.

OUR PRIDE & PREJUDOODLES PROMISE
Our program relies on community members (like you) who want to grow their families with a new furry friend. Thus, it’s only fitting that we give back to the community by collaborating with the following charities:
- The Morning Center: Based in Memphis, Tennessee, the Morning Center provides free maternity care to women in underserved areas.
- Compassion International: This charity connects donors with underprivileged children in need of health care, education and disaster relief.
- Peru Medical Missions: The Peru Mission connects impoverished Peruvians with affordable medical care.
Little by little, we hope to help make the world a better place. As part of our charitable program, we promise to match donations dollar for dollar (up to $500). We’ve raised $306,000 so far and hope to grow that number in the future.
PRICING BENEFITS & FEATURES
When it comes to the health and well-being of our dogs, we spare no expense. To help cover the costs of health testing, spaying/neutering and training, we ask customers to submit a $4,000 deposit. This deposit helps us prepare your new furry friend for your home and is counted toward the final cost of your puppy.
PUPPIES & TRAINING
The price of your puppy depends in part on the size. Generally, we offer our medium/standard dogs for $3,900 and our minis for $4,400. We also provide two training programs:
- Three-Month Training Program: $12,900
- Five-Month Training Program: $17,900
Puppies enrolled in our training program are raised by a professional trainer who will potty train them and teach basic obedience commands. Keep in mind that all our puppies come with both a low-shedding and a health guarantee — if any fatal congenital defects arise within 12 months, we will replace your puppy at no additional cost.
PAYPAL PAYMENT PLAN
Every dollar you put towards your dog goes into making sure they’re happy, healthy and ready to live in a new home. Of course, we understand if you feel hesitant about the costs, which is why we have a payment plan available through PayPal. Using a Paypal credit card, you don’t have to pay interest on purchases over $99+ (provided they’re paid in full within 6 months). You can learn more about this program here.
