At Doodles of NC, our commitment to the health and happiness of our Goldendoodle puppies is unparalleled. We understand that bringing a new puppy into your home is a significant decision. That's why we offer a LIFETIME health guarantee to our clients, ensuring confidence and peace of mind when adopting from us.
Our Unique Lifetime Health Guarentee
Our promise extends beyond the simple sale of a puppy. We stand by the robust health of our Goldendoodle puppies, supported by a lifetime health guarantee. This guarantee is our pledge, relieving buyers of any worries regarding untreatable health conditions that might arise during the lifetime of their beloved pet.
Rigorous Genetic Testing: A Foundation of Trust
The cornerstone of our health guarantee is the extensive genetic testing we conduct on our breeding dogs. Our F1B Goldendoodle puppies are backed by a lineage of healthy, genetically-tested parents and grandparents, ensuring a legacy of good health. This testing includes checks for:
Ichthyosis (Golden Retriever Type)
Neonatal Encephalopathy with Seizures
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (Golden Retriever 1 & 2 and general)
Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration
Von Willebrand Disease I & II
Each parent has passed these tests, affirming their freedom from genetic abnormalities and diseases common to Golden Retrievers and Poodles.
Beyond Genetic Testing:
OFA and PENN Hip Assessments
Our dedication to our puppies' health extends beyond genetic testing. We also perform Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) testing and PENN hip assessments, crucial for ensuring our dogs are less susceptible to early-onset arthritis and hip dysplasia, conditions often found in Poodle and Golden Retriever breeds.
Comprehensive Health Exam on Puppies
Before our puppies find their new homes, they undergo a thorough health examination by a licensed veterinarian. This includes screening for common abnormalities like hernias and cleft palates. This is part of our layered approach to guaranteeing the health of your new Goldendoodle puppy.

Doodles of NC is more than just a breeder. We are a community committed to the lifelong well-being of our puppies. Our breeding program is a testament to our dedication to the quality of life and good health of our Goldendoodles. We ensure they receive the best veterinary care, including necessary vaccinations, de-worming, and preventative measures like requirements spay/neuter at one year old to promote their overall well-being.
