How did the Golden Doodle dog begin? The Golden Doodle or Goldendoodle is an intentional combination of both a Golden Retriever and Poodle. The initial intent was to produce a helper animal that was lower shedding and therefore an allergy friendly alternative to those needing an assistance animal. While Golden Doodles were bred as far back as the 1960's they gained a lot of popularity in the 1990s. This is both a blessing and curse to the breed as I believe many people saw the Golden Doodle breed as a way to make a lot of money. Some people even inbred their dogs or bred a large Golden to a tiny poodle causing a variety or skeletal issues that still exist in the breed. However, a well-bred Golden Doodle is not only confidently friendly and outgoing, but also has a sense of humor. Both the Golden Retriever and Poodle are known to be easily trainable and a well-bred Golden Doodle will be a delight to train and will want to spend time with its people. The Golden Doodle is popular in both the USA and Australia, but in Australia the breed is called a Groodle.
Now there are Golden Doodle registries like GANA- Golden Doodle Association of North America and an established breed standard. Golden Doodle Breed Standard - Golden Doodle Association of North America There are other places that Golden Doodles can be registered. There is a reason they have become popular! The combination of a Golden Retriever and Poodle is indeed a winning combination.
Golden Doodle puppies are for sale in a variety of sizes. While some people do seek to breed smaller puppies like Toy Golden Doodles or Mini Golden Doodles and even Teacup Golden Doodles we breed mostly a Standard Size Golden Doodle and will have puppies for sale in the near future! The reason we focus on the standard sized Golden Doodle is because a standard Golden Doodle can perform all the service dog tasks from a trained therapy dog to a service dog for mobility, but a small or mini Golden Doodle would not be able to perform all those tasks. I am aware there are people who prefer a smaller sized Golden doodle to perform tasks such as a diabetic alert dog or seizure alert dog and thankfully there are people who do focus primarily on producing smaller sized doodles.
My focus for Kansas Doodles Golden Doodles is health and temperament above looks. I am committed to the Empowered Breeder / BAB philosophy to respect each dog in my breeding program with respect and each puppy born here with respect. We DNA test through embark, each of our parent dogs have their hips, patellas and elbows checked with PennHip or OFA. It has been a challenge to find a place to get the eye and heart testing done, but that is something we will be getting done in the near future.
The Golden Doodle is not likely to be happy as an outside dog away from their family. They are by nature an outgoing breed and like attention. When socialized properly and from a young age they are a delight! They can also be useful in many ways their original parent dogs can be such as field work, obedience, conformation, agility, companionship, service, detection, comfort and search and rescue. A Golden Doodle thrives as a trained therapy dog as well. Outcrosses are tricky and sometimes it simply isn't a good match, but when focus is on health and temperament and not simply looks it increases the likelihood of a well-rounded assistance or helper animal.
My goal is like that of those beginning the breed. I want to offer a less shedding or none shedding puppy or trained older puppy / young adult dog to those who need an allergy friendly option.
We go above and beyond at Kansas Doodles. We make it a goal to produce the best temperament and to match what each family is looking for with their future lifetime companion.
