The groodle (also known as a Goldendoodle) is a hybrid of a pure-bred golden retriever and a poodle (miniature or standard). They have been bred since the 1990s. The aim of crossbreeding is to minimise the genetic diseases that can be present in pure-bred dogs.

Description

The Groodle is known as a wonderful dog for families due to its zest for life, loving kind nature and gentleness. They are very intelligent, just like their parent's (Golden Retriever & Poodles). They are suited to an active family, love the water but are also more than happy to laze on the couch with their humans.

Colour

As this is a new breed for us we aren't sure what our pups will come out with! However, we are expecting a mix between golden and red with our first few litters.

Coat

Medium length, fleece to wool coat and low - non shedding making it an excellent choice for allergy suffering families.

Grooming

Your Groodle's coat will require a certain level of care. Due to being a relatively non-shedding breed, they will be required to be professionally groomed every 6-8 weeks with brushing and combing regularly required in between to avoid matting. If you neglect this you may pick up a very different looking dog when you collect it from your groomer!

 

Their eyes should be cleaned regularly to prevent a build-up eye discharge and tear staining.

Suitability for Children

High

Excccise

Groodles are highly active dogs and will require daily walking and visits to the dog park for socialisation. They adore being a the beach and will thrive being off lead and being able to run!

Life Expectancy

10 - 15 years.
