I was wondering whether you have any puppies available?
Unfortunately our lists fill up very quickly due to only being a boutique business. Our 2017 & 2018 lists are closed and our 2019 has just opened. This includes our mini's, mediums and standard lists all being full. Please keep an eye out on our website and Facebook page for any openings.
What is a Groodle?
A Groodle is a Golden Retriever X a Poodle, we produce mini's, mediums and standards. This different sizing is achieved by crossing the Golden Retriever with a mini Poodle or a standard Poodle.
What are the different generations? Example F1 F2 etc.
F1 = Golden Retriever x Poodle
F1B = F1 Goldendoodle x Poodle
F2 = F1 Goldendoodle x F1 Goldendoodle
F2B = F1 Goldendoodle x F1B Goldendoodle
F3 = F1B Goldendoodle x F1B Goldendoodle OR
F3 = F1B Goldendoodle x F2B Goldendoodle OR
F3 = F2 Goldendoodle x F2 Goldendoodle OR
F3 = F2B Goldendoodle x F2B Goldendoodle
Multigen = any pairing of F3 x F3 or above
We produce MINI MULTIGEN F4b (Mini F3 Groodle X Mini Poodle) MEDIUM MULTIGEN F3b (F2 Mini Groodle X Standard Poodle) and STANDARD MULTIGEN F3b (F2 Standard Groodle X Purebred Standard Poodle.)
What does a mini, medium and standard Groodle weigh? And their height?
Our mini girls are are 9-11kgs and are 35 cms tall at their shoulder. Our standards weigh anything from 24kgs-34kgs and are 55cms at their shoulder. We have only produced one litter of mediums, they are currently 8 months old, this was acheived by mating our mini to our standard and we suspected they would be inbetween both sizes and so far we are correct, yet there is still growing to be done. Since this breed is not a standardised breed, it is important to note that no guarentees can be made on size.
How do I get on a waiting list?
Some of our clients wait on our list for 1-2 years, so please be patient. We will advertise whether our list is still open or closed for each sized litter for the year. We have places for our 2018 litters open. Please also keep an eye out on our website and Facebook page for litter information, we usually have pups come available the day they're born.
What colours will be produced?
We pride ourself on producing chocolate puppies, as all of our Groodles and Poodles have the chocolate gene. We also produce creams and blacks. We are hoping in the near future to produce phantom Groodles and parti Groodles.
What sex is better?
Well, it's completely up to each individual's taste and desires. I have always loved my girls and have mainly had girl dogs growing up. Charlie Boy is the most gentle, loving family dog, he is so calm and is amazing around small kids. The girls can be more excited compared to Charlie. Both very easy to train. Charlie tends to mark his territory because of the amount of girls he is around (once desexed then a dog shouldn't do this as often.) The battle of the sexes will continue... Up to you!
What's the difference between a Groodle and a Labradoodle?
Well first of all a Groodle is a Golden Retriever x Poodle, and Labradoodle is a Labrador x Poodle. Bother Groodles and Labradoodles shed minimally. Both breeds are easy to train, yet Groodles are more suitable for Assistance dogs as they have better adaptability. Both breeds are very similar, they both are great family dogs and are very suitable with kids.
What coat should I expect from your Groodles?
As we backcross our Groodles to a Poodle (mini & standards) we aim for non shedding, shaggy, curly coats - somewhat Bob Marley like. We do not produce fleece coats, all of our Groodle pups are full of cuddly wool!
Will their coat need regular maintenance/grooming?
As their coat is non-shed, it is lower maintenance than most dogs. Yet, if you don't want your dog looking like a greyhound come summer I would suggest regular brushing as their wool can tangle leading to a very short clip at the groomers. We let our dogs grow out in winter, so they get that gorgeous shaggy look and it keeps them insulated. Summer time we trim them short, not so much to keep them cool (as their wool actually keeps them cool aswell as warm,) but to keep them clean after many swims and outtings to the beach/dam.
What is the life expectancy of a Groodle?
Why should I choose a Groodle?
Well, The Golden Retriever ranked 4th and the Poodle ranked 5th, out of 148 breeds in popularity. Poodles are 2nd and Golden Retrievers ranked 4th brightest dog breeds. If you've ever met or seen a Groodle, well you wouldnt be asking this question! They are so family orientated, they love attention, they are so easy to train, they don't shed, they are amazing assistance and therapy dogs, they're a woman/mans best friend, let me tell you!
