A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

HI, I am new to goldendoodles. I trying to learn all I can. I currently do not have a doodle but am looking to get my first one. I live on a small hobby farm and teach a little obedience mostly for fun. I have a wonderful demo dog that is aging and need to start a new dog. I hope this will be a doodle. Looking forward to talking with all you doodle pros.

Thanks for your kind wishes on our upcoming obedience trials. We live just north of Dallas, Texas, and the first show we could attend was in Oklahoma City, OK. (OKC). Not all shows are open to mixed breeds, you just have to go on the AKC website and search for those shows. Most of the people we've met at the obedience trials are very welcoming to mixed breeds, but there are some purists who are not that excited, expecially when a mixed breed wins. I'm not sure if doodles will ever be accepted as a recognized breed. There is so much cross breeding and back cross breeding going on. But I'm thrilled with the original cross that I have. That to me is the ideal mix. Zoe is just at 50 lbs. I had hoped she would be closer to the size of my golden retrievers, but you can never be certain what you'll end up with. I've seen some doodles that are over 85 lbs. The one negative I have is the grooming that's required. In the past I've had golden retrievers, shelties, a St. Bernard and a Bernese Mountain Dog. None of them had the grooming requirements of the doodle. I keep her short in the summer because she's always in the pool or the lake. I have a very patient groomer because I don't spend a lot of time brushing her out. She gets a full grooming every four weeks and a brush out at two weeks just to keep the matting under control. Hope you find one soon and can start enjoying your new pup.

Judy that is awsome. I hope I can do so well. I am not familiar with OKC. Can you tell me more about that? I wondered how long it would take AKC to realize the money they are missing not allowing mix breeds. I wonder if they will ever recognize g'doodles/l'doodles as a breed of it's own?? Good luck on your CDX.

I have a 4 year old golden doodle (Timshell Farm in Texas) that completed her CD in May. On the first weekend that AKC shows accepted mixed breeds (April 3-4), I showed her in OKC and she placed first in Novice A on both days. The next month she earned her title in McKinney, TX. I started working with her at 12 weeks but didn't really get serious until this year because I couldn't show her. She's bright and a quick learner. I'm hoping over the next few months that she'll earn her CDX. I think they can be outstanding obedience dogs and they're fun to be around. Good luck in finding the right dog. I hope more doodle owners realize what a treasure they have and how smart they are.
