Goldendoodles are the result of calculated crossbreeding between pedigreed Golden Retrievers and any of the three officially recognized Poodle varieties (standard, miniature and toy). Exceptional breeders like Blue Ridge Goldendoodles are able to produce puppies with the best attributes of each lineage — physical beauty, loving and loyal personalities, high intelligence, a strong desire to please and a size range that suits apartment dwelling, farm living and everything in between.
Combine these traits with the Poodles’ prized non-shedding coat and it’s evident why Goldendoodles are, according to a recent survey, among the fastest-growing canine breeds in America. They’re an outstanding choice for anyone with allergies and make excellent service dogs for people with disabilities for the same reasons. Their patience and gentle spirit make Goldendoodles especially good with small children.
If acquiring a Goldendoodle is the right choice for you or your family, start by locating a top-quality breeder. Retrievers and Poodles are both at-risk for hip dysplasia; it’s crucial that breeding pairs be vet checked and cleared prior to mating. All puppies should be examined and okayed, too. These exams are standard operating procedure at Blue Ridge Goldendoodle Puppies. If you choose one of our second-to-none pups, you’re guaranteed to get a happy and healthy new best friend.
