 Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Goldendoodles true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog. Goldendoodles are commonly bred from a golden retriever/standard poodle cross and typically will range in size from 65 75 lbs. There are now breeders who offer a "mini doodle", with the poodle parent being a smaller poodle. These dogs would range in size from a smaller scale of their smaller parent to upwards of a Golden Retriever size. Females are typically smaller than males in any size Goldendoodle.

Goldendoodles seem to be a little less weary when meeting strangers, but both dogs are known to be extremely sociable animals. They both have been used many times for service and therapy purposes, and are great with children. The main differences between these two breeds are their physical characteristics. As far as size is concerned, the Goldendoodle tends to be a little larger than the Labradoodle, both in height and weight. When it comes to looks and grooming, the Goldendoodle has hair that is much longer than the Labradoodle, therefore it will need visits to the groomer for a haircut every 4 10 weeks or so. If you base your decision on the maintenance of the coat and grooming, you may want to consideration to purchasing a Goldendoodle. Speaking of coats, both dogs are categorized as either F1 or F1B based on the amount of hair and amount of shedding that will occur. The main difference is that F1’s will shed some and F1B’s shed very little, if at all. The predictability of a breed comes from selection for traits that are desirable and away from traits that are undesirable. When a breed standard or type is set, the animals within that breed have less heterozygosity than do animals in a random population. The Goldendoodle is nothing more than an expensive mongrel.
