Goldendoodle Medium

Crossbreed, Medium

Doesn't moult much

Good for first time owners

The Miniature Poodle and Golden Retriever is growing in popularity, rivalling the ubiquitous Cockapoo. Coat type can be variable in the first-cross, but is more predictable in further generation crosses.


Attractive to ...

Someone that wants a (slightly) less manic Cockapoo.

Not the best for ...

Someone that wants a fully hypoallergenic dog. If you get the coat right, it should be non-shedding - but first-crosses are unpredictable, and some people are allergic to a dog's shed skin or saliva on the coat rather than the coat itself.
