Country of Origin: The Mini Goldendoodles are a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, a cross that originated in North America in the late 1990’s. Poodle crossbreeds are meant to produce a dog with mixed traits and the Poodle’s signature nonshedding coat. the Mini Goldendoodle has seen a recent surge in popularity. Here at Puppies up North, we raise F1 Mini Goldendoodles
Size: The Mini Goldendoodle has an average 14-16 inches tall and weigh approximately 25-40 lbs depending on the parents. As a crossbreed, the Goldendoodle has a wide variety of appearances. Those with more Poodle influence tend to have a thinner coat and shorter muzzle, whereas the Golden Retriever influence results in a wider neck, and longer muzzle. Goldendoodles can have short or long ears; most have a ‘V’-shaped ridge from the forehead to the nose.
Coat: The Mini Goldendoodles coat is a cross between the Golden Retriever and Poodle coat. It has fine hairs which appear quite thick. It can be curly or straight, most fall somewhere in the middle. Unclipped, the hair will grow about 4-7 in in length. Unlike the Poodle, the Mini Goldendoodles should not be clipped any shorter than 2 in, as the coat provides natural protection in heat and cold. Depending on the Poodle influence, the Mini Goldendoodles can come in a wide variety of colors including white, tan, chocolate, black, red, silver, or a mix thereof. A variety of colors and coat textures can appear in the same litter. Depending on the source breeds, the Mini Goldendoodles may shed little to none like the Poodle or shed moderately like the Golden Retriever. Generally, the lower generations are better for allergy sufferers. Most Poodle crosses will go through various coat phases in their first year of life.
Character: The Mini Goldendoodles is intelligent, friendly, and family oriented. It is a highly social dog. Mini Goldendoodles tend to follow their nose wherever it leads, so a fenced-in yard is recommended. They are always ready for a game; most Mini Goldendoodles retain the natural retrieving instincts of the Golden Retriever. The Mni Goldendoodle’s friendliness with strangers makes it a poor watchdog. Goldendoodles do not bark frequently.
Temperament: Mini Goldendoodles love to be with their family. They are eager to please and get along well with children, other animals, and strangers. They are social dogs and crave being around people.
Care: The Mini Goldendoodlse requires some brushing or combing every few weeks. Mini Goldendoodles have a lifespan of 9-15 years. They are prone to most health issues affecting Golden Retrievers and Poodles, including hip dysplasia, ear infections, and eye problems such as cataracts, but as a mixed breed they are somewhat less likely to suffer health problems than purebreds (known as ‘hybrid vigor’). Here at Puppies Up North, we strive to keep the parents as healthy as possible checking annually for the breed issues.
Training: The Mini Goldendoodles are intelligent and has a strong desire to please its master, making it highly trainable. Positive reinforcement is likely to be the most successful approach.
Activity: The Mini Goldendoodle requires a moderate amount of exercise. Most enjoy swimming as both the Poodle and Golden Retriever are not averse to water. Mini Goldendoodles can live happily on a farm or in a big city. They will thrive with daily walks or play time.
– More FAQ’s
How can I tell them apart?
When our puppies are first born, I put a piece of yarn around their neck. This yarn aids in keeping track of their growth, their “input and output”, their personalities, their type of hair, etc.
How much time are you around your puppies? Are they socialized?
I spend a minimum of 5-6 hours a day with these puppies: holding, changing soft blankets, cuddling, taking care of mama and her needs, teaching, tickling, cuddling, working through their 100 point socialization skills, cuddling, potty training, cuddling, … oh and did I say I love to cuddle with them? Ha.
What are the parents like?
We make every effort to make sure that our mamas are fed and watered properly before giving birth. We assure them daily that they are okay and that this is a great thing. Often when dogs are pregnant, they are very self conscious and very cuddly. The mamas almost act like puppies again and stay close on my heels to seek constant attention. My husband and I make sure that they get “extra loves” during their time of pregnancy.
What will the puppies come with?
All puppies will come with lots of love to give. They will be well socialized and up-to-date with their shots. They will have been given the proper doses of worming medications, will have an excellent vet check, their dew claws will have been removed, and last but not least, we will also be available for the LIFETIME of the puppy for any questions you may have.
Puppy comes with a PUPPY BASKET full of things puppies love: a stuffed toy to cuddle, Life Abundance Starter bag, a couple shampoo samples, Life Abundance treats, a 1 gallon bag of pine chips and a blanket that has been rubbed on mama for that great “mama smell”. They will also come with a Board of Animal Health form to show we are licensed and doing things right, an 80 point vet check record signed off my the vet who examined each of them at 8 weeks, a full detailed health record showing all the things we did for your puppy to keep it strong and healthy (record of shots, wormers, nail clips, vet checks, Bordatella given, etc.) and a copy of your deposit receipt and copy of your final payment receipt!
