Goldendoodles are extremely popular dogs. They typically have golden retriever personalities and non-shedding poodle coats. Overall, goldendoodles are great family dogs with easy-to-maintain coats.
Because of the breed’s popularity, finding goldendoodle breeders is relatively easy. However, it can be difficult to tell if a breeder is responsible.
These dogs are valuable, and many breeders just want to make a quick buck off of their dogs.
To make sure you get a well-bred puppy without trauma, you need to make sure you choose a reputable breeder. You can do this by asking the right questions.
First, make sure the breeder lets you see the dogs in the habitat they raise them in. You want to make sure they have room to play in a safe environment close to their mother. You also need to get information about both of the puppy’s parents to determine if the puppy was well-bred and the breeder was selecting mates well. In addition, ask if the breeder has genetic testing information about each parent.
Lastly, make sure you select a breeder with appropriate pricing. If the puppies are exceptionally inexpensive, they may be poorly bred. You don’t want to overpay for a puppy, however, so make sure you aren’t getting overcharged. Many breeders offer information about their prices on their websites.
