What size and generation can Goldendoodles come in?
Goldendoodles can come in Teacup, Miniature, and Standard sizes. We specially breed only Teacup sized Multi-generational Goldendoodles. Our Teacup Goldendoodle puppies are mature at 4 to 15 pounds full grown, the smallest size Goldendoodles can come in.
Multi-generational (MulitGen) means there are at least three generation of Goldendoodles in a puppy's pedigree. MultiGen Goldendoodles are the best generation for allergy sufferers, since we can accurately trace the lineage and non-shedding qualities of our puppies' parents and grandparents. Many puppies in our program are second or third generation Posh Doodles', meaning we owned their parents and/or grandparents. Our Goldendoodle puppies are all non-shedding and hypoallergenic, qualities that come from the poodle side.
30 lbs +
What colors and markings do Goldendoodles come in?
Most Goldendoodles are on the red spectrum of color (red to cream). Goldendoodles can have white markings, called Parti (white with colored spots) or Tuxedo (colored with with white markings). Here are examples of color and markings.
What is your guarantee?
Each of our puppies come with a LIFETIME guarantee that covers 150 genetic diseases! We also give you 30-DAYS of free puppy health insurance through Trupanion, just in case any accidents happen those first few weeks with your puppy. See what is covered in our guarantee at the link below.
IMPORTANT! Health does NOT come from special expensive foods or supplements!!! It DOES comes from health tested parents and good breeders who do the best for their puppies!
We do NOT require you buy a specific food or health supplements to have this lifetime guarantee like many other breeders do. This includes foods and supplements: including Life's Abundance, PAWTREE, NuVET, and many more companies which are MLMs, and make these other breeders extra thousands of dollars each month you buy these food/supplements. Many breeders make you use more than one to have your guarantee!! Please be wary of these breeders that promote these companies!
Expert from an email from one of these MLMs that contacted ME: "... I work with many well known Doodle breeders whom love [name removed] and add $15k+ to their annual revenue. Once they start they always wish they had done so sooner. ... "
This is only one example of the many emails I have received from these MLM companies. We don't breed and raise our puppies for profit or try to make an extra buck off of our families every month, we do it because we love it, it is our passion!
How can I get my puppy home if I live out of state?
There are three ways to get your new puppy home:
1. Pick your puppy up from us at our home.
2. Fly home with your puppy as carry-on on your flight. (most popular option)
3. Arrange for a flight nanny to fly with your puppy to meet you in person at a US airport near you. This generally costs $450-$550 depending on the nanny. We have our own flight nanny that can usually take our puppies. If she is booked, we like to use TLCFlightNanny.com!
We do not ship our puppies in cargo! We work very hard to ensure their confidence, adaptability, and easygoing nature and would hate to break that trust and confidence that our puppies have gained in the first 8 weeks of their lives. Whichever way you choose, we are very experienced in helping our babies travel to their new homes, and will be happy to work with you any way we can! If you decide to use a puppy nanny other than our own, please make sure you contact us before booking your puppy's flight home to make sure we can make the drop off time work for us.
How do you raise your puppies?
We take what we do seriously and are very intentional in the way we raise our puppies! Each litter of puppies grows up in a nursery in our living room. This exposes them to every day family living and the noises and sounds that are associated with that, as well as frequent contact with us. Every puppy also receives one-on-one socialization and training from the day they are born until they day they leave our home. We also use the Early Neurological Stimulation protocol which has been proven to give puppies a greater resistance to stress and disease, stronger heart rates and stronger heart beats, along with a stronger adrenal system.
In this way, we succeed in raising incredibly lovable Doodles with the most calm temperaments and sweetest behavior - always ready to cuddle with you! The puppies spend their days playing in the house, socializing with adults and children, and exploring outside. We also start potty training early, teaching them to use potty pads at just 3 weeks of age. Our families have told us their puppies rarely have potty accidents when they get to their new homes when kept on a schedule!
Which payment methods do you take?
We accept Venmo, PayPal Friends & Family, Cash App, Credit/Debt Cards (fees apply), and mailed cashier's checks (if your puppy is under 4 weeks of age). No spots on the waiting list or available puppies will be reserved without payment!
The deposit to get on the waiting list is $250 and non-refundable. Deposits show us your commitment to getting one of our puppies, and holds your place on a waiting list for an available puppy. Please do not commit to the waiting list or an available puppy if you are unsure you want a puppy or are not ready for one. Any and all payments towards deposits and puppies are considered retainers and are non-refundable under any circumstances.
What happens if I can't bring my puppy home on pick up day?
We do our best to work with different schedules and try to be flexible with puppy pick up arrangements. If you cannot pick up your puppy within a three day grace period after pick up day, we can board your puppy at our home for you. The cost to board your puppy is $45/day for up to 5 days past the initial three day grace period. Boarding fees must be paid IN CASH at pick up, and go home arrangements must be made by 5 weeks of age.
Do your puppies come with shots?
Your puppy will go home with age appropriate vaccinations and will be de-wormed multiple times.
Do your puppies come with breeding rights?
All Posh Doodles' puppies are exclusively sold as PETS ONLY. Our puppies are not sold to people for breeding purposes. We have taken a long time perfecting our lines and do not share them with just anyone who has the money to pay for them. However, we are happy to work with other breeders, especially new ones just starting out!
Please contact us before placing a deposit if you want breeding rights! If we find out you have the intentions to breed your puppy before you take them home and we have not given you breeding rights, your deposit will be forfeited and you will not be getting your puppy from us. If we find out you plan to or have bred your puppy after taking them home, your dog and any puppies will be confiscated.
Do Goldendoodles make good family pets?
Yes, absolutely. In general, these intelligent dogs make excellent companions and respond beautifully to training. Goldendoodles are happy and have amazing dispositions, are happy-natured, and even-tempered. We socialize our puppies with children before they go home with you.
Do you health test your parent dogs?
Of course we do! Genetic screening of the moms and dads for inherited diseases should be an integral part of any breeding program. Although it's extremely costly, Posh Doodles voluntarily chooses to screen all of our dogs (150 genetic tests per dog plus additional coat and color testing) prior to breeding because we know that screening our parents is crucial in producing happy and healthy puppies. We share all of our dogs test results for the public to view. Please be responsible and only purchase a puppy from a reputable breeder who genetically tests their dogs prior to breeding.
Will I get a perfect puppy?
I am sure you already know the answer to this question, but no! Our puppies are just that... puppies! They will still get into mischief, nibble on hands, potty on the floor, and test boundaries. We do everything we can to give our puppies the best start and a solid foundation but your training, time, and commitment is needed to grow your puppy into the dog you want. We highly recommend group puppy classes, beginner classes, and advanced classes. Finding a positive reinforcement trainer is going to help continue the training that we have already started. Puppies will be puppies, and I always say, a tired puppy is a good puppy!
Do you guarantee the adult size of your puppies?
Most definitely not! We wish we could see into the future, but just like with children, you cannot predict adult height/weight. We do make our best educated guess as to what your puppy will weigh based off of our years of experience, what the parents weigh, what past puppies have weighed, and what grandparents weighed. Very rarely does a puppy weigh more than it's parents. We are almost never off by more than a pound or two in our guesses, and most often it's for puppies that have ended up smaller than we thought they would be. All of the dogs in our program range from 4-15 pounds. Size at birth does not matter, puppies can be fast growers or slow growers.
At seven to nine months old, Teacup Goldendoodle should be their adult size. We have found once your puppy is about 3-4 months old you can chart their adult weight at www.puppychart.com. Just choose any breed like poodle (they do not have a Goldendoodle option) and follow the directions. The breed does not change the outcome of the results! We have found this website to be pretty accurate.
Can I visit the parents and puppies before I place a deposit?
We want to give families the opportunity to get to know us and see what we are all about, and we try to do that as much as we can through our website and communications with you. I’m proud of the love and care that we show our dogs. Unfortunate, in our world today there are so many dangers to allowing strangers in your home. We do our best to show the pups to families but we have several factors to consider.
• Health concerns for the puppies: including parvo, giardia, and coccidia.
• Puppy theft has become a real problem recently.
• We have far too many families wanting to meet the parent dogs or puppies before placing a deposit.
First issue: Mothers and fathers for each litter don't live in the same home, making it almost impossible for families to come meet both parents at once.
Second issue: We are real families with a real lives. We have kids which means homework, school, dinner, and family activities. We cannot have the 10+ families that contact us daily wanting to meet parents and puppies before placing a deposit come meet the puppies.
• These puppies are not ours to risk. They belong to families that are taking them home.
Once the pups are born, we will send new professional photos bi-weekly so you can see your puppy. We can also send more photos and video to you, just let us know!
Only families with deposits placed that are adopting a puppy from us can come visit us, on pick day to choose their puppy. We cannot accept other visitors. Families MUST NOT visit any places on the same day that may have had other dogs visit them (parks, pet stores, vets offices, etc). You MUST take off your shoes before entering our home and wash your hands before handling the puppies to avoid spread of disease. If you bring children with you, they must sit on the floor and hold the puppies in their laps. Thank you for understanding. Our puppies always come first!!
How many times do you breed your girls?
Each of our girls has a MAX of four litters for us. We don't breed our girls over that or until our girls are 7 or 8 years old like many other breeders.
What are furnishings?
Sooo many breeders do not even know what this gene is, even though it is an integral part to any Doodle program! Breeders that do not know about this gene are the ones that breed puppies that look more like Golden Retrievers than Doodles (AKA a "Flat" coated puppy). These are the Doodles that shed terribly and don't have that signature "Doodle" face and look.
In Goldendoodles, the IC-Locus (furnishings) determine if a Goldendoodle will be able to have puppies with fluffy 'teddy-bear' faces. The "F" gene is the furnishing gene, and the "IC" gene is the improper coat gene. A good example of a fully furnished (F/F) dog would be a Poodle. A good example of an improper coat (IC/IC) dog is a Golden Retriever. A good example of a carrier for improper coat (F/IC) is a F1 Goldendoodle. Furnishings is a dominant gene, so as long as a dog has one copy, they will have visible furnishings (fluffy face). Keep a look out for F1 x F1b, F1 x F1, and F1b x F1b breedings, as most will have "Flat" coated puppies!
