Goldendoodle Mini – Experts Guide
Table of Contents
I really want a Goldendoodle, but can you make it a mini? Why yes, yes we can. Who would have thought you can take an amazing dog like a Golden Retriever, breed it with a Poodle to make it more hypoallergenic and combine the best traits from both. Then, breed that already terrific dog with a miniature poodle and come out with a mid-sized version with all the great characteristics, including their intelligence, friendly demeanor and low-shedding coat (super helpful for those with allergies). Everything you wanted in a dog, just a smaller footprint (and less poop). Hooray!! While a smaller dog isn’t for everyone, it makes a great companion dog for seniors, lap dog and overall family pet when a standard sized goldendoodle isn’t as practical.
A brief overview of miniature goldendoodles
The goldendoodle breed was first introduced back in the 1990’s in search of a hypoallergenic guide dog. The gentle temperament of the golden retriever, along with the poodle’s low-shedding coat seemed to be the perfect combination, turns out they were right. From there, the miniature goldendoodle emerged as an option for those with limited living space or a preference for smaller dogs.
So what makes it a mini? Although they come in all coats and sizes, generally the they fall between 15-35 pounds, are13-20 inches tall and are categorized as a small to medium-sized dog. I know, it sounds simple, but it really is more complicated than you might imagine. I mean, do you really think a 7 Lb dog and a 50 Lb dog can do what it takes to make mini goldendoodle puppies without assistance? Not a very likely scenario, but with the help of modern science and a little bit of luck, the miniature goldendoodle is here to stay.
Easy to train and low maintenance, they really are worth the fuss! Wondering if the goldendoodle mini is for you? You can read our ultimate guide here. We will cover the coats more later, but this is a key feature of the breed. Coats can vary in texture from wavy to curly, come in a wide range of colors, including cream, apricot, red, tuxedo and even parti-colors. With proper breeding, they also tend to shed minimally and are a great choice for those with allergies.
Outside of the coat, they are also known for their friendly, highly affectionate and very social personalities. They truly bond so well with their families, they will easily become a member of your household and are really good with children and other pets. They are also ‘wicked smart’ (insert Boston accent) and are eager to please, which means easy to train as long as you give them that time. They are also great in in various dog sports and activities, playing ball, swimming, and generally being active.
