An F1 Goldendoodle is 1/2 golden retriever and 1/2 poodle. A great mix of both breeds.
An F1b Goldendoodle is roughly 3/4 poodle and 1/4 golden retriever. It's an incredible mix of a Poodle intelligence, non-shedding, and hypo-allergenic coat, with the wonderful, loving, fun, loyal, and happy personality of the Golden Retriever.
An F1b Cavapoo is 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. Like F1b Goldendoodles, Cavapoos are also intelligent, loving, non-shedding, and hypo-allergenic.
An F1bb is an F1b bred back to a Poodle. We occasionally breed F1bb generations, which are even more Poodle for those with severe allergies or for those who just love the personalities and looks of Poodles. They are approx. 82% Poodle and 18% Golden Retriever or Cavalier.
Puppies will receive the following:
You will need to schedule a vet appointment within 72 hours of receiving your puppy. The vet will also schedule the final rounds of vaccinations that are typically given three weeks apart. After the final set of vaccinations (at approx 16 weeks old), your puppy will be ready to go and explore his or her new world with you!
You bet!! We will always consider your puppy to be a part of our family. We will be lifetime companions to help you with your puppy! Through this process many families become our good friends as well. We only want success for you and your new family member. We will anxiously await updates and pictures/videos of your fur baby! We will always be here to help answer any questions you may have!
All of our dogs are named after destinations that have significance to our family. Roma is named after Rome, Italy where our oldest daughter lived for 18 months. Miya (Mee-yuh short for Miyazaki) is a city in Japan where Marianne lived. Georgia is named after the beautiful peach state where our grandma was born and raised and our grandpa lived for two years. Holly is named after Holland where our ancestors come from and where our daughter-in-law lived for 18 months. Cali is named after California where several of our family members have lived. Diego is named after San Diego, CA where our son-in-law lived for 2 years and where our grandparents lived. Fiji is named after Suva, Fiji where our oldest son lived for two years. Ida is named after Idaho where our sister and brother in law live, Indy is named after Indiana, and Ginny is named after Virginia where our sister in law and her guardian mama is from.
We also know our puppies are destined for yo. We just get the wonderful opportunity to be a step in the process to get them to your destination and loving home.
Each puppy will go home with a generous bag of necessities including the following:
Yes, our puppies all come with a 1-year health guarantee, and we extend that to 2 years if they are fed a high-quality dog food recommended by your veterinarian.
Yes!! Yes!! Yes!! And believe it or not, puppy training is for the new owners more than for the puppy! We really wish we were sending you a fully trained puppy, but at 8-9 weeks old, that is nearly impossible. We do, however, make every effort to lay a foundation for potty training, crate training, and socialization that is appropriate for their age. We spend countless hours exposing the puppies to many different situations, sounds, people, textures, car rides, different places in our home, our dogs, etc. We encourage you to continue this for the optimal success of the puppy. We will send home with you a list of easy things to do each day.
We highly recommend you also use a professional puppy trainer. You can sign up for a class, or better yet, have someone come to your home to observe you and your puppy in your own environment.
Having this great foundation will help to ensure you will have a well behaved dog for many years to come. Not all training is the same. We recommend a trainer that uses a positive approach. Goldendoodles and Cavapoos are generally very smart, easy to train, gentle, and they are people pleasers . Again, it is usually the owners that need most of the training. A great trainer will help you and your new puppy establish a relationship of trust and create a great daily routine (young puppies thrive on routine). You will have a strong bond and relationship from the start that will be well worth the investment.
There are many wonderful trainers out there. We really like Zac George (you can watch his YouTube videos, and we encourage you to purchase his books on Amazon.) We have also partnered with Baxter and Bella for online classes and unlimited lifetime telephone support. You can sign up at www.Baxterandbella.com use the code destinationdoodles for the discounted training course (with the discount its approx $170 total for a lifetime membership). This course is worth every last penny and more!
That depends on the look you want for your puppy. Personally, we like our dogs to have the teddy bear cut and about a one-inch coat. To maintain that, we have them groomed every 6-8 weeks. Between groomings, we bathe them every 2-3 weeks. We give our dogs a good brush, and then we comb them out at least once a week to prevent matting. This brush/comb out takes about 3 minutes total, and our dogs absolutely love it! Sometimes we brush them longer just because they love it so much! We also use a puppy wet brush to brush them out quickly a couple times a week to keep their coats looking fluffy and fresh.
Yes, our puppies are only sold on a spay/neuter contract and must be spayed/neutered by 15 months of age.
