How has breeding Goldendoodles changed over the years?

Goldendoodle in LIfe MAgazineIn 2004, Life magazine famously featured a Goldendoodle on its cover accompanied by the headline, “The Perfect Dog? How the Doodle became the new family pet.” It was instant validation for this wonderful hybrid among the general public. In the decade since, Goldendoodles have skyrocketed in popularity.

Today, people can’t seem to get enough of these beautiful and smart canine companions. Visit any park or green space in your city where people regularly go to walk their dogs and you’re quite likely to cross paths with someone strolling with a Goldendoodle.

Unfortunately, some dog breeders have treated this surge in popularity as an opportunity to make money, without any regard for the dogs they are producing. They breed Goldendoodles simply to sell “product.” The physical and mental health of the breeding pairs as well as the puppies is an afterthought in the process. It’s the curse of success.

On the other hand, here at Blue Ridge we began to breed Goldendoodles years earlier. We fell in love with this smart, beautiful crossbreed before almost anyone had even heard of them. We just knew that they were great and we wanted to raise the best puppies possible and make them available to the small niche of people who had the good sense to seek one out.

Fifteen years later and the Gold(endoodle) Rush is on — but our goal is exactly the same. We’re still producing our second-to-none Goldendoodle puppies for people who want to make this “perfect dog” a permanent member of their family.

If you’re looking to add a smart, beautiful and sensitive Goldendoodle to your household, you owe it to yourself to consider a top quality puppy from Blue Ridge Goldendoodles.

About the Author:

I own and operate Blue Ridge Goldendoodles with my husband Jeff. We have been professional dog breeders for 15 years, starting with Labrador Retrievers then changing to English Creme Golden Retrievers before evolving into English Creme Goldendoodles also known as Teddybear Goldendoodles.We are proud to say that all of our puppies are born and raised in our home with our three children. Being raised with our family insures the puppies are highly socialized and exposed to different environments. This also allows us to interact and get to know the puppies individually.All our breeding dogs either live with us in our home or in guardian/foster homes. Please check out our website and get to know us and our dogs.
