After the wildly successful breeding of Labradoodles, the Goldendoodle was introduced in the early 1990’s. The hypothesis that an AKC Golden Retriever bred to an AKC Poodle was that it would produce a sweet-natured, highly trainable, low-shedding and allergy friendly dog. Those assumptions were absolutely correct as the genetic combination of the two produces an increased vigor and other superior qualities. This cross breeding is known as heterosis or hybrid vigor in which the cross between two unrelated purebred lines is hardier and healthier than either individual parent line. The Goldendoodle with its sincere expression, gentle nature and perceptiveness makes an excellent companion or family pet.
A Doubledoodle is typically an AKC Goldendoodle bred to an AKC Labradoodle. We essentially get the best qualities of both breeds. We have found some clients specifically wait for a pairing of this nature.
