Goldendoodle Breed Classifications

For dog-loving people with allergic reactions, the Goldendoodle could be the right decision for you when it comes to choosing a pet. Since the Goldendoodle came from the Poodle mixed with Golden Retriever, their coats are allergy-friendly! Due to the Goldendoodle’s curly coat, you can expect much less shedding to almost non-shedding coat in comparison to the Golden Retriever.

During the process of searching for mini Goldendoodle Puppies for sale in Illinois, you’ll notice these genetic classifications dog breeders offer:

  • F1 Goldendoodle: This is the First Generation Goldendoodles cross, 50% Golden Retriever and 50% Poodle. Since it’s a Golden Retriever mixed with a Poodle, the F1 cross is considered the healthiest because they inherit a genetic trait known as hybrid vigor. This means they’re less likely to have to deal with inheritable genetic diseases. In addition, they will also be healthier than their purebred dogs' parents because they aren’t constantly bred to the same genetic bloodline.
  • F1b Goldendoodle: This is a backcross between an F1 Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever mixed with Poodle) and a Poodle. This means that the dog breed is 25% Golden Retriever and 75% Poodle. To give you an idea, F1b dogs are less likely to shed and more allergy-friendly because they have a significant amount of Poodle genes.

Mini Goldendoodle Personality

Just as with any hybrid breed, a Goldendoodle puppy will pick up personality traits from its parents.  All of our litters produced are even-tempered, intelligent, and affectionate puppies, as are the personality traits for Golden Retrievers while combining the whity family-friendly nature of a Poodle.  Every dog will have its own personality and of course, that will change (good or bad) based on the training and socialization they receive.  

Goldendoodles are a fantastic choice for families with children. They get along great and love everyone, including other pets! Plus they're patient enough to gently deal with young ones - making them perfect members of your household crew.  Sometimes (more often than not) a doodle pup will have spurts of being cheeky and mischievous, but that comes with the territory of any new furry friend.

They are highly social and prefer to spend with their family. Leaving them alone for extremely long periods could cause separation anxiety which is something you don't want your dog going through!

Mini Goldendoodle Temperament

  • Fun, entertaining, playful
  • Active, energetic
  • Smart, intelligent
  • Easy to train, can adapt to drastic changes

Goldendoodle Puppy Training

Since mini Goldendoodle dog puppies are known to be quite intelligent, they’re easy to train and are often used as service Doodles. As Doodle breeders in Illinois, we noticed that they’re eager to please their owners and learn quickly when it comes to training. A standard Goldendoodle is resilient, which often makes it easy for them to adjust to drastic changes (new child, new family member, etc.).

Nevertheless, these events do not occur spontaneously — all the puppies need lots of love and care. By providing your young dog with good training and reinforcements and ample supervision, they will become obedient, affectionate, and loyal family companions.

Goldendoodle Health

Mixed breeds, such as Goldendoodles are often desirable because they have a decreased risk of inheriting health issues. Their mixed-lineage means that these dogs can avoid some common puppyhood diseases.

Just as with their temperament, Goldendoodle pups may inherit health issues from their parents. On the Golden Retriever side, some health concerns could be Cataracts, Cancers, Von Willebrand’s Disease (clotting of blood), and Subvalvular Aortic Stenosis (blockage of blood flow through the heart), or ear infections. On the Poodle side, some health concerns could be Hip Dysplasia, Patellar Luxation (displacement of knee ligaments), Epilepsy or bloating. On the positive -- these health concerns occur sparingly and securing a healthy, happy doodle pup can be handled with just a bit of effort on your part.

The main thing to focus on with health is what you can do to improve and maintain your puppy's health. Common outdoor activities are always welcomed, as is a conscious diet.

As a responsible breeder, Central Illinois Doodles only allows adults to produce a litter after it passes our health testing. Read our blog on our Health Guarantee, which outlines great tactics of how to care for your puppy and what Central Illinois Doodles does differently from other breeders.  

Aside from wanting an endless amount of love and a good temperament, Goldendoodles are known to be a healthy dog breed. It’s less likely that they’ll be dealing with any life-threatening diseases. If you have an active lifestyle, Goldendoodles are a perfect choice.

Grooming your Mini Goldendoodle

A doodle puppy requires regular grooming to maintain their coat and keep it looking its best. Grooming can be done at home or by a professional groomer. Brushing their coat every week will help to keep it clean and free of tangles. Goldendoodles with longer or curly coats may need to be clipped every few months to keep the coat from getting too long.

It is one of the important Doodle puppy basics to start grooming your Goldendoodle at an early age to get them used to the process. It not only helps to keep their coat looking its best, but it also allows you to bond with your dog and keep an eye on their overall health.

Mini Goldendoodle Appearance

Goldendoodle puppy or mini Goldendoodle puppy can be tricolor, merles, apricot, red, black, or tan markings. There are many different Goldendoodle coats, giving you a wide selection when deciding on a companion to bring home. A standard Goldendoodle can have these types of hair: straight, wavy, and curly.
