The origin of the Goldendoodle dates back to the 1990’s…
Breeders in both North Amreican and Australia began crossing golden retrievers with standard poodles…
Wally Conron first created the Labradoodle in the early 1990’s. As the Labradoodle’s popularity rose, breeders decided to cross Golden Retrievers with Standard Poodles.
They wanted to see if the gentle nature of the Golden and the coat and intelligence of the Poodle would produce a combination as popular as the Labradoodle.
Dog lovers immediately fell in love with the Goldendoodle. It’s popularity grew as so-called “designer dogs” became the latest fad.
But unlike most fads, the popularity and love of the Goldendoodle hasn’t faded.
This love-affair prompted another creation – the “mini-Goldendoodle” which is a cross between a female Golden Retriever to a male Miniature or Toy Poodle.
The first litter arrived in Jan 2002 attracting a great deal of aattention, ranging in size from 13 to 20 inches in height and 15 to 35 pounds in weight #cutenessoverload…
Controversy about whether this hybrid cross is an abomination or not continues to surface.
I and many others continue to believe they are –
- terrific family dogs
- easy to train
Thank the Doodle for my Boys – they’re a joy!
