Many breeders have the puppies neutered before going to their new homes at 8 weeks of age, but we are firmly against this practice because it is just too early the proper development of the dog. We do, however, require the dog to be spayed or neutered by the time they reach 6 months of age. Goldendoodle and Double Doodle puppies are microchipped, and go home with a puppy kit that includes a toy, a blanket that smells like home, a leash, and a collar!
Shipping is not included and Flight Nanny is preferred.
I generally take 5 deposits before a litter is born. The deposit is only refundable if I am unable to provide a puppy meeting the description upon which we agree. For example, if you can only take a black male and no black males are born, you would have the choice to alter your request (to a different color or gender), apply your deposit to another litter, or get your deposit back.
The deposits place the new owners on a ranked waitlist on a first-come first-served basis. So how is it determined which puppy do you actually get? Well, the allocation process is a combination of me matching people to their requirements. Generally people find that color and sex take a back seat to personality and allergy properties that would be a best fit for their family! I wait until personalities of the pups become apparent, usually around 7 weeks. I then make recommendations to the first person on the list about what pups I think are appropriate for them, based on family considerations, color preferences, allergy situations, etc. They choose, then I go to the next person, give them THEIR options and they pick. And so on until your place on the list. I begin taking deposits on a litter when the prospective mom comes into season. The deposit is $500 or $700 for first pick.
The Double Doodle is the result of a breeding between a F1b Golden Doodle and a F1b Labradoodle. The sizes depend upon the dam and sire, along with the coat and markings. It is very important to use a F1b dam and sire to achieve the consistency and hybrid vigor. Here at Double Down Doodles, our Double Doodles are smaller in size and should not exceed 30 pounds as adults. Because there are ultimately three breeds in the pedigree, there is always a chance a gene from either full breed will double up and become dominant, in which case the puppy will favor the full breed in certain areas. An example of this can be seen in Zoey's previous litter. Zoey and Reggie are blond/red. So are their parents. Yet, Zoey delivered two black coated puppies! The black is from the poodle line! The picture on the left is Scribbles, the F1b Golden Doodle stud used with Madisyn to produce our 1st litter of Double Doodles.
Our Golden Doodles are F1b, F1bb, and multi-gen. This means the consistency is higher than an F1 breeding. The F1 is a mix of Golden Retriever and Poodle - 50/50. The F1b is 75% poodle and 25% golden. The F1bb is 87.5% Poodle and 12.5% Golden Retriever. The F1bb is the most hypoallergenic we can achieve. This is a result of breeding a F1b Golden Doodle back to a poodle. This is the scenario of the most recent breeding of Zoey. We bred her back to a mini poodle. The sizes should not be over 30 pounds.
