goldendoodles for sale in knoxville tn They absolutely must have guidance and structure if they are to be well behaved. As with the poodle, they are so intelligent that they can actually pick up on whether or not an owner is weak minded and can be dominated. In short, if the Goldendoodle can dominate its owner, it will. Because of that, the owner of the Goldendoodle must be calm but assertive and establish "top dog" status right away while the new family member is still a puppy. The Goldendoodle is a hybrid enjoying a surge in popularity. First bred in a systematic manner in the 1990s, it is a cross between pedigree Golden Retriever and Poodle parents. Because the Poodle comes in three clearly defined sizes – Toy, Miniature and Standard, the Goldendoodle, similarly, can range from a small to large dog. It is almost invariably gregarious, cheerful, and good natured, and is an ideal choice for anyone that has other pets or that is looking for a dog that the kids can hang out of without fear of retaliation. Most are reasonably energetic, and the Golden Retriever within demands space – a large garden is a must to keep the Goldendoodle in good shape, both physically and mentally. The intelligence inherited from both parent breeds makes this a very easy dog to train, and the Goldendoodle is also adept at competitive activities. It is a strong swimmer – something that can make up a portion of the daily exercise requirement.

Suddenly everyone and anyone who could get their hands on a Standard Poodle and Lab breeding pair, went into the doodle breeding business. In 2008 Ms. Manners of Rutland Manor and her daughter Ms. Cunningham of Tegan Park had a nasty and very public "parting of ways". Cunningham's bitter divorce and the dissolving of mutual assets acquired during the marriage, resulted in Tegan Park USA doodles and foundation breeding stock dogs worth millions left in deplorable conditions on the Cunningham's Florida ranch. Many dog's were "auctioned" off on the internet. Many were filtered through the shelter system. Many who were sick and suffering from various ailments including Parvo virus and malnutrition died. SEE LINKS BELOW ON TEGAN PARK AND ANGELA WETZEL CUNNINGHAM ; Ms. Manners herself has been accused of running a "puppy mill" operation and has been under investigation by the RSPCA Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals since 2008.

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. The straight coated Goldendoodle resembles the coat of the Golden Retriever while the curly coat resembles the coat of the Poodle. The wavy coated Goldendoodle falls somewhere along the line between the two coat types. Similar to Poodles, Goldendoodles come in a wide range of colors including everything from gold or tan to red, gray, and black. Many Goldendoodles exhibit a sandy brown coloration similar in appearance to the Golden Retriever’s coat. The length of the Goldendoodle’s coat varies depending on breeding, though it is generally medium long and fairly dense but soft in texture.
