Question by puppy7angel: How to really take good care of a goldendoodle?
I want to buy a mini goldendoodle puppy but I need some good tips. Can someone help me get good tips on dogs?

Best answer:

Answer by Teresa V
I didn’t know they came in mini now….how do they make them mini. Check on the parents and back a few generations until you get to the actual purebred dogs. Buy a book on caring for dogs and read it before you get one. I am still ify on the whole mini thing…….

Designer Dog?

Question by creamsicles616101: Designer Dog?
Has anyone ever had a poodle/ lab/ golden retriver mix dog before, or can anyone find a picture of one?

Were thinking about breeding our lab/ golden retiever mix with a labradoodle. Is that a good idea?

Thanks in advance!
Alright everyone- I’m sorry I was just thinking about it. I won’t do it, I don’t want to have to put dogs to sleep =(

Alyssa, its really rude to call someone retarded, my brother is austistic and calling someone retarded is almost like discrimination.

Answer by dogsrmylife92
Not a good idea.Your breeding mutts to mutts. Never a good idea. There are so many mutts being eutanized daily please dont add to the problem.

edit:Its not a designer dog,whats designer about it? its a mutt!

What kind of haircut should I give my goldendoodle?

Question by chickamunka_keh: What kind of haircut should I give my goldendoodle?
She has fairly straight hair for a goldendoodle, but its getting a little matted. Is there a specific length I should get it cut? I dont want her to look shaved, but its getting a little long.

Best answer:

Answer by kgreives
If the dog is getting matted, you may want to start a weekly/daily even, grooming session. It would be better than cuttings its hair, and with winter coming your dog needs its coat. Good Luck KG

Q&A: Is it possible for a Goldendoodle to look exactly like a Golden Retriever?

Question by Kenny: Is it possible for a Goldendoodle to look exactly like a Golden Retriever?
I have a 9 week old Goldendoodle puppy and he looks EXACTLY like a Golden Retriever puppy, not a Goldendoodle puppy from the pictures I’ve seen… Your thoughts?

Best answer:

Answer by Lilla
maybe his looks will change as he gets older. But that is strange. Did you ask the breeders at all? were both parents goldendoodles that you were told? or was it golden and poodle?

What is with the designer dog and teacup dog trend?

Question by I love my Dachshie: What is with the designer dog and teacup dog trend?
I have seen so many questions in the dog section concerning so called designer dog and “teacup” puppies lately. Why on earth would anyone want to buy these overpriced mutts and runts? If you’re willing to spend thousands of dollars on a dog, why not get a healthy dog from a reputable breeder? If you want a “labradoodle” or a “bugg,” i’m sure you could find one at the pound.

At risk of this being reported as a rant, here’s a question: What is you favorite dog breed and why?

What is a goldendoodle and golden retriever mix classified as?

Question by stmcub04: What is a goldendoodle and golden retriever mix classified as?
I recently bought a puppy who’s parents are a F1 Goldendoodle and a Golden Retriever. Would this still be classified as a Goldendoodle? I’ve never heard of a goldendoodle bred this way. Has anyone had any experience of a similar breed? Our puppy is great so far, and just wanted more information.

Best answer:

Answer by Tammy C
A mixed breed,and no I don’t hate mixed breeds,I love them. I have two,but yours is a mixed breed as well,and probably a very nice one.

Puggles!!!?

Question by Jenna S: Puggles!!!?
My question is, does anyone know of any puggles for sale in MN that is relatively a good price that have also had shots, dewormed etc….also does anyone know…is it bad to get a puggle that came from a female pug and a male beagle? Is that still considered a puggle? I know the original cross should be a male pug and female beagle…anyone know anything?
Does ANYONE have any positive view on puggles? goodness! That is the dog I want….I don’t want a Pug or just a Beagle, ….I want a puggle.
You all say it’s unethical to breed a pug with a beagle, why?

Best answer:

Answer by alambre_ibizan_hounds
that is not correct..any cross between the 2 is the exact same thing…male female female male..does not matter…but why on earth would you want to pay 1500 for a mutt when you can probably get a purebred pug for less?

goldendoodle?

Question by lalal: goldendoodle?
I have a two year old goldendoodle. I dont get all the bashing thats going on about them. Purebred dogs were made by mixing other purebred dogs together. For example, the australian silky terrier (an akc recognized breed) is a mix of an australian terrier and yorkshire terrier. A papillon is a mix of phalenes, chihuahuas, and spitzes. A goldendoodle is just a golden retriever and poodle mix. They should be recognized by now by the akc. People mix dogs so that they can fufill different purposes. A golden retriever is smart but sheds a lot. Mixing it with a poodle , would make it smart and not shed a lot-a perfect combination. Why can’t they get recognized?

Please no bashing. I’m just asking a question.
Can anyone explain step-by-step what people should do to get them recognized?
And i didnt get my dog from a puppy mill, so stop yelling at every single goldendoodle owner about it. You know nothing about me. I got my goldendoodle from a breeder. Its funny because purebred dogs can come from puppy mills too and i dont see anyone yelling at them for it.

Best answer:

Answer by mmcrobinson
Until the AKC recognizes them as a Breed they will continue to be mutts. so if want you can petition the AKC —-

labradoodles?

Question by FrAnK-iErO-lOvEr: labradoodles?
i live in illinois, can anyone tell me where labradoodles (labrador/poodle) are being sold. i would rather rescue than a breeder though. but im open to a lot, so please suggest anything! thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by ginbark
Check out Petfinder.com for a shelter near you with one or either a Poodle or Lab Rescue. Many purebred rescues also rescue mutts so they may have one. They do shed and the ones I’ve seen are quite active.
