Frequently asked questions
Are puppies selected or placed?
We will determine at the time of birth what the best strategy for puppy selection or placement is. This is dependent upon a number of factors, litter size, diversity, demand etc. We will announce at the time of the birth what the selection process entails to make sure you get your desired puppy.
Are puppies vaccinated?
All puppies will have a complete health check and will be fully up to date on veterinary required vaccinations and de-worming.
What value do you add to your puppies?
Our puppies are raised with concepts of the Puppy Culture program. This is a world renowned puppy rearing protocol that gives puppies a head start on neurological stimulation, socialization and behavioral qualities. Click here for more details on Puppy Culture.
All puppies are raised inside a house (not a kennel) in a loving family environment.
Will my Goldendoodle shed?
While Goldendoodles are known to be non shedders, the truth is this can not be guaranteed unless expensive genetic testing is performed on the puppy.
I'm looking for a raven black goldendoodle, will you have any?
We can not know for sure until puppies are born what the stork will deliver but we certainly hope so. Based on the genetics of the parents, it is quite likely that there will be raven black goldendoodles! What makes these so cool? Well, most people expect a goldendoodle to be, well, golden! However, using a black poodle in the bloodline will produce some raven goldendoodles. A lot of these guys can even turn various shades of black as they age, grey, silver, phantom and even blue!
Are they good with kids?
We are huge believers in this breed for their family loving qualities. Like over the moon. To be honest our bigger concern is you! Are you committed puppy parent? We are big believer in raising your puppy the right way with solid principles and boundaries.

A Goldendoodle is a hybrid dog, the result of breeding a poodle and a golden retriever. The breed was originally created in North America and Australia during the 1990s in an effort to produce a dog suitable for people with allergies and a larger alternative of the cockapoo. Goldendoodles have been proven to be extraordinary family dogs, as well as adaptable working dogs. At home your Goldendoodle will be affectionate, gentle, and highly social. They are easy to train, which makes them a great match for first time dog owners. As a breed, they are not known to have aggressive traits but will need the appropriate socialization to avoid nervousness or anxiety.
Goldendoodles have the intelligence of the poodle, combined with the loyalty and obedience of golden retrievers – making them wonderful guide dogs, therapy dogs, service dogs, and even sniffer dogs.
Physically, Goldendoodles are strong and lean with an athletic build. They will excel in agility training and make great running partners once their joints are properly formed.
Shedding & Coats
Goldendoodles have a stellar reputation for not shedding, the reality is all will shed and to varying degrees throughout their development. Some may shed very little, comparable to a human losing random hairs. Others may shed like golden retrievers.
Goldendoodle coats are categortized into three groups:
Straight Coat: Flat and straight, closely resembling a Golden Retriever.
Curly Coat: This type of coat tends to resemble the Poodle, but softer.
Wavy Coat: A strong mix between the straight and curly coats.
Please take note even if your dog doesn't shed, you can still be allergic to their dander. Allergies have to do with two things: the specific proteins a person is allergic to and whether or not those proteins are produced by your dog. The proteins which cause allergic reactions can be found in skin cells, saliva, or urine, or a combination. We recommend you consult an allergy specialist for an accurate assessment on your potential to be allergic to Goldendoodles.

"At first we were most excited about the low price! Nobody could beat it. So, we took a chance. Then the amount of content was unbelievable. So many great recommendations on which products to buy. I dove right in and made sure I followed every video to the best of my ability. She even has charts that I was able to track his behaviors." ~Ryan
"I cannot say enough good about this program! I am a first time dog owner and had no idea where to begin. This program gave me the direction I needed. We have used the program for four months and our puppy is now six months old. I am frequently getting compliments from family, friends, pet care professionals, and strangers about how well behaved our dog is for being a puppy." ~Amy
