For years it has been known that Doberman Pinschers and Rottweilers all responded poorly with parvo vaccines and for a long time, no one knew why. Studies have been conducted on both of these breeds and to date, I am not sure if they came up with a solution as to what specific brand worked out better for either breed. Since 1999, we have always known that Goldendoodles react differently to vaccines than many other types of dogs. We did NOT realize until 2004 that the brand we had been using was NOT affective at all in protecting our Goldendoodles from parvo and distemper!In 2005, we spoke with a company that offers vaccinations to the general public and we spoke at great lengths of what was going on. We were fortunate enough to have found a gentleman who had 25 years of vaccination experience that really changed everything for us!His knowledge turned the tables with ONE vaccine!New high titer low passage vaccines are most effective than older vaccines even in the presence of maternal antibodies, and have narrowed the window of susceptibility that occurs between declining levels of maternal antibodies and acquired immunity produced by the vaccination. We discovered that by NOT allowing the general public to enter our premises unless they made a financial commitment to a puppy this stopped all the breeder hopping that so many potential customers do when in search for a family pet and by vaccinating our young puppies at the age of three weeks instead of waiting until they were six or eight weeks of age, our puppies remained parvo free and this reduced the risk of possible exposure dramatically!Many breeders never give if a single thought when someone calls them wanting to "swing by and have a looksie" at their adorable puppies!We learned tragically of how dangerous this simple request could be!Until more breeders hop on the STRICT POLICY bandwagon, more puppies will become infected with parvo in 2008!Breeding dogs should be vaccinated two to four weeks before being bred to ensure high levels of antibody in their colostrum.

Poodles are very intelligent so they require plenty of mental stimulation in addition to daily exercise. These dogs are very social so they may be somewhat reserved around strangers but they make friends quickly and they get along well with other dogs. Standard Poodles generally get along well with children and they are unlikely to bother other household pets. In terms of health, Poodles are fairly healthy though they are prone to several serious conditions including Addison’s disease, von Willebrand disease, epilepsy, and Cushing’s syndrome. Poodles have also been known to develop skin problems, hip dysplasia, gastric dilation volvulus, and renal disease. Because the Goldendoodle is a mixed breed dog, each litter of puppies will be completely unique depending on which genetics they inherit from which parent. The two parent breeds, the Golden Retriever and the Standard Poodle, do have some similarities, however, so you can make a few predictions about the Goldendoodle breed. For example, both parent breeds are medium to large sized dogs so the Goldendoodle can be expected to reach an average size between 40 and 70 pounds. It is not uncommon, however, for Goldendoodles to be much larger than that if both parents passed along strong genes for size. It is also possible for Goldendoodles to be much smaller if they are bred from a Golden Retriever and a Toy or Miniature Poodle. In terms of appearance, the Goldendoodle comes in three different coat types: straight, wavy, or curly.

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. 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.
