The combination of golden retriever and poodle parents adds extra cuteness and an easygoing temperament to these hybrid dogs, reports Blue Ridge Goldendoodle Puppies
Sevierville, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/17/2014 -- To maximize the cuteness level of a dog, just add poodle. This is especially effective when the other parent dog is a retriever. The first poodle/retriever mix to gain attention was the labradoodle, which results from a pairing of a Labrador retriever and a poodle. Now, that has been taken up another level with the arrival of the goldendoodle. This hybrid is created by crossing a golden retriever with a poodle. A mini goldendoodle has similar parentage, but a miniature poodle is one of the parents.
"The first thing everyone notices about the goldendoodle is its incredible cuteness," said Cindy Suit, co-owner of Blue Ridge Goldendoodle Puppies. "But this is just the beginning of the benefits of this type of dog. They're also highly intelligent, have great temperaments, and are generally healthy animals."
Intelligence is very important to ease of training, so it is a sought-after trait by those who want their pets to be able to quickly pick up on instruction. It also provides a dog with an alert demeanor, and often, an increased willingness to play games with its owner. Playing games is intellectually stimulating to a dog and averts boredom that could otherwise lead to problem behaviors.
Good temperament is only partially related to breed. The dog's raising is also important for bringing out the best in a pet while stopping unwanted behaviors from becoming problematic. "Our puppies are raised right in the house, which includes three children," Suit noted. "This gives them exposure to multiple age groups and a variety of situations. Even so, we only keep them for eight weeks. After that, it's up to the buyer to continue to provide a good, wholesome environment for his or her new dog."
The general health of goldendoodle puppies for sale shouldn't be taken for granted. While the breed generally exhibits an acceptable level of hardiness, good breeding practices are very important. Responsible breeders will test both individual parents to make sure that they don't have any health problems to pass down to their puppies.
"We perform a wide variety of breed-specific and general checks of both parents before they are allowed to breed, and we also carefully check all puppies before they're sold," Suit said. "This allows us to offer a full 2-year health guarantee on our dogs. We also give our puppies all of their first shots, make sure they're regularly wormed, and send a full vet report along with each puppy. When people buy puppies from us, they can be sure that there aren't any hidden health issues to worry about."
