While a beautiful color, the merle gene can cause blindness and deafness if two parents carrying the merle gene are bred together, so merles should be bred only by very knowledgeable breeders who test for the merle gene and understand the genetics involved. Phantom’s have a specific pattern of markings on a solid background above each eye, on the sides of the muzzle, chest, inside the legs, and under the tail. Brindle patterns appear as stripes, the color and the width vary with each dog. Furnishings are the longer facial hair, including eyebrows, mustache and beard, found on most Goldendoodles. Golden Retrievers have an “open face,” that is, short facial hair. There is another term to describe the lack of furnishings: incorrect coat. The gene responsible for furnishings is dominant; so by testing the parent dogs DNA, it can be determined if a breed pair will produce puppies that all have furnishings, or if there will be some puppies with an incorrect or Golden Retriever like coat. Dogs with furnishings are lower shedding than dogs without furnishings. While most prefer the Goldendoodles with furnishings, aka a “Doodley” coat, there is a market for Goldendoodles who look more like Golden Retrievers, but have the genetic diversity and sometimes lower shedding than a Golden Retriever. If you have a family with allergies, a Goldendoodle with an incorrect coat is not the best match for you. By testing the parent dogs of Multigen Goldendoodles, your breeder can be sure not to breed parents that will produce puppies with incorrect coats without furnishings unintentionally.

The puppies will have a great personality; golden retrievers are well known for their generosity and laid back temperament whilst the poodle is more playful, smart and equally as friendly. Mixing 50% golden retriever and 50% poodle gives you the F1 type Goldendoodle. A Goldendoodle is a mixture between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle; the Poodle part of the mix can be one of the three sizes of Poodles, Standard the largest, Miniature and Toy. Standard Goldendoodles typically range from 22 inches to the shoulder to 26/27inches although on occasions they can reach the dizzy heights of 29 inches. Whilst being totally adorable, we found that Standard Goldendoodles can sometimes be just too big for some families so we decided to look at also breeding a ‘scaled down’ version, leading us to look towards Miniatures. We discovered that Miniatures are a new phenomenon in the UK but that there is a huge variation in heights according to the size of Poodle in the mixture. We are now in the position to produce different sizes of 'Miniatures'. We are very excited to be the first breeder of 'Petite' Goldendoodles, which have the same characteristics as larger Goldendoodles but in a smaller package!They are likely to average around 14 inches to the shoulder, and we can more or less guarantee that no Standard size puppies will appear in a litter of Petites. Our Miniature puppies tend to average approximately 16 17 inches to the shoulder, around Cocker Spaniel size, although normally a little stockier. We also can breed Medium Miniatures who average around 18 22 inches to the shoulder, so perfect for families wanting a 'dog sized dog' but not a pony!All these different types of Miniatures result in a perfect family sized companion coupled with the gorgeous teddy bear looks that the Goldendoodle is renowned for, and wonderful, gentle, friendly temperaments which are second to none. It is important to be aware that we cannot guarantee size as puppies could reach the size of either parent or potentially taller.

It is important to be aware that we cannot guarantee size as puppies could reach the size of either parent or potentially taller. PLEASE BE AWARE that in an F1 mating, becauise one parent is a Golden Retriever then puppies can easily reach the size of a Golden Retriever when mature, although they are not normally as heavy. This is despite the sire being a Miniature Poodle. This will apply to any puppy from any F1 mating with a Miniature Poodle regardless of the size of Miniature Poodle and regardless of the breeder. I have had so many people contact me to tell me that their puppy has grown to be much larger than expected and their breeder told them they would be Cocker Spaniel size!In an F1 mating this is very, very unlikely as a Miniature Poodle is around Cocker Spaniel size itself and the resulting puppies from a mating between a Cocker Spaniel sized dog and a Golden Retriever isn't likely to result in Cocker Spaniel size progeny!You are likely to get puppies that mature to around 18 22 inches to the shoulder on average but this cannot be guaranteed. If you would like a dog who will most likely mature to around Cocker Spaniel size then BOTH parents need to be Cocker Spaniel size. This means this isn't going to be an F1 mating. Here at Kizzabella we do have the potential to breed the smaller Miniatures and Petites, these will not be F1 puppies. as that would be impossible!However the puppies coat types do range between the looser, wavy coats up to the more curly coats and some puppies will be indistinguishable from F1 puppies in looks. Depending on their coat type see Generations Explained Goldendoodles generally require fair to high coat maintenance. The majority of Goldendoodles will require professional coat care at least at some point in their lives, some need only very occasional clipping whilst others need more regular visits to the groomers, but what tends to happen is that the dogs that shed the least require the greatest amount of attention to their coats in order to prevent mats from forming.
