Goldendoodles are crosses between full-bred golden retrievers and poodles. They have the playful and gentle nature of a golden retriever in addition to the intelligence and patience found in both breeds. Goldendoodles aren’t meant for apartment living — they can grow up to 90 pounds and need a yard to run and play in.
The popularity of golden retrievers has helped make the goldendoodle a popular breed in the United States. People with allergies can’t own golden retrievers, so a goldendoodle allows them to bring home a dog with much the same temperament and personality. They don’t shed very much at all, so you won’t need to worry about your allergies bothering you in their company.
To keep your goldendoodle’s coat and fur healthy, you do need to groom and trim it regularly. We train all our puppies to be able to tolerate and cooperate with these procedures.
You may have noticed that quite a few service dogs are labradoodles. This is due to their extreme intelligence, desire to please and gentle, patient nature. Families with children consider labradoodles because they’re great with people of all ages. A labradoodle is the offspring of a full-bred poodle and a Labrador retriever.
It’s important to provide mental and physical stimulation to occupy an energetic labradoodle. Make sure you’re walking your pup regularly and make frequent visits to the dog park. While you can find larger labradoodles meant to romp around in a large yard, apartment dwellers may select smaller ones that grow to as little as 22 pounds.
Labradoodles are a versatile breed and come in many sizes and colors. This makes it easy to find the labradoodle puppy that fits in most with your lifestyle and needs.
A cockapoo is a cross between a full-bred poodle and a cocker spaniel. They’re the smallest puppies we offer, with some growing to only 6 pounds at adulthood. This is ideal if you live in an apartment and can’t provide a large yard for your puppy to explore. It’s also possible to find cockapoos as large as 65 pounds if you’d prefer a medium to large dog.
There are many fur textures and colors to choose from when selecting a cockapoo. All the fur textures are completely hypoallergenic, so you won’t need to worry about your puppy shedding much around the house. Your cockapoo will be trained to tolerate baths, haircuts and nail trimmings so you can take care of it without hassle.
Cockapoos are social butterflies and get along with people and other dogs. They’re a great choice if you have children because they’re patient and forgiving. While easy to train, they do need to be taken out regularly to run out their energy and keep their minds occupied.
