Over the years we’ve taken note of the top questions prospective families ask about Goldendoodles. In case you are in the market, we hope the answers to these 5 serve as a great resource for you!
1) How much is a goldendoodle puppy?
Believe it or not, cost is the #1 question asked. Doodles of NC’s standard fee for 8-week old puppies is $2,300. Now there is a LOT wrapped in to that amount, including a 1-year health guarantee, so we encourage you to take a look at our pricing page to learn more.
2) What size will a goldendoodle be?
We offer two distinct types of goldendoodles: F1-B Mini and F1-B Medium. Within these two categories a range of sizes exist. Typically males run a bit larger than females - even in the same litter.
Our F1-B Minis goldendoodles come from a miniature poodle dad and a F1 medium goldendoodle mama. Their puppies are expected to stay between 15 - 20 pounds; perfect lap dog size and compatible to most any living arrangement, including major cities.
Our F1-B Medium goldendoodles come from a miniature poodle dad and a F1 standard goldendoodle mama. Larger than the minis, these puppies are expected to have a full adult weight of 30 - 45 pounds. Might not seem like the perfect lap dog size in your mind, but their temperament certainly causes them to climb on up and snuggle when allowed. The goldendoodle’s low-shedding, hypoallergenic fur also makes snuggling that much more inviting!
3) What is the personality of a goldendoodle?
Such a great question! This one starts getting into the heart of why we breed this amazing breed. Being a hybrid, the goldendoodles pick up on the best traits of both breeds: the intelligence and trainability of the poodle and the loveable personality of the golden retriever.
Are they good with children and other pets?
I know, I know. We are sneaking in an extra question in here. But, the answer is - yes - and totally fits in with their personality. Goldendoodles are wonderful family pets, especially when introduced to children from an early age.
At Doodles of NC, we expose the puppies to children of varying ages during the first 8-weeks. Our two young daughters love toddling around with the puppies, but we also encourage children of various ages being introduced towards the end of their time with us.
And, the same can be said of other animals. Proper introduction in a controlled environment (ex. Leashes, open space) goes extremely well with goldendoodles. Their friendly, loving spirit transfers right over to your other fur children.
