Yes.  All of our breeding parents and/or ancestors have been OFA-p tested for hips, and many for elbows. All are PRA-1 or PRA-prcd tested, and the poodles and doodles are Von Willebrands Tested.  Many are OFA certified for heart.  All poodles and doodles are vet tested for Patellas.  Complete embark testing has been done on all of our parents.  We have been breeding since 1995.  We have continually improved our lines and feel like we are offering exceptional puppies both in health and temperament.

goldendoodle pawHow are the pups selected?

Pups are reserved according to gender.  They are chosen in the order in which the deposits are received on the day puppies go home (8-9 weeks of age).  Pups are selected by their families.  We will offer to help you select based on what we have observed regarding temperaments, energy level coat style and approximate size at maturity.

We give the family a time slot in which to come, select their puppy and take him/her home.

goldendoodle pawHow big do they get get?

Our Backcross Miniature Goldendoodles are expected to mature at about 30-55 lbs.

Our Backcross Petite puppies should mature at around 15-30 lbs.

Extra petite-Toys, 10-20-ish lbs, depending on the parents.

Please note:  These weights are our best guess, based on the weights of the parents, and past offspring at maturity.  There is no way we can know for sure how big or small the puppies will mature because of the diverse sizes of the ancestors.

goldendoodle paw  When can the babies go home with their new families?

It is best for the pup to stay with the litter until 8 weeks of age (9 weeks for the smaller puppies). We schedule puppy pick-up as close to 8 weeks as possible.

goldendoodle pawWhat does Backcross” mean?

A backcross goldendoodle has a higher percentage of poodle than Golden Retriever.  This is sought after for people with allergies.



goldendoodle pawAre all Goldendoodles non-shedding?

Goldendoodles can shed some depending on which parent they take after.  Generally even if a doodle sheds it is less than a Golden Retriever.  In our experience the curlier or fuller the coat, the less the shedding.
