Why MID SIZE DOODLES....

• The Size of our pups full grown approximately 40-60 lbs.

(Heights and weights vary as this is a hybid. So we can't guarantee size or height.)

• The Back of the dog comes up to your knee.

• Both are 'gun dogs' who retrieve the duck from the swamp for you.

• They are are companion minded dogs who want to please you.

• They aren't prey driven. Their purpose is to sit by your side and wait for instructions.

 Most people don't realize standard poodles were bred for the SAME PURPOSE as retrievers.

That makes a great combination for a great predictable personality in the dogs we breed. Both parents are similar size so we have a pretty good idea what size they will be.

Stay away from MINIATURE doodles!!!

WE DO NOT BREED MINIATURES.... BECAUSE OF THEIR SPLIT PERSONALITY and UNPREDICTABLE SIZE. 

.

The cute little doodles are poorly behaved, 

unpredictable in behaviour and size created using a 

MINIATURE OR TOY POODLE - they are not the same personality 

as the calm natured standard or moyen poodle.

.

• Miniatures are known to be insecure, needy, noisy like many small breed dogs - they have small dog symdrome.


• We can't predict if they will be big like the retriever or small like the poodle.


• They can be FEAR BITERS - not the best pet for your family and CHILDREN.


• MINIATURE DOODLES end up with a split personality because of the two opposite personalities of the parents - ONE A LARGE DOG MINDED CALM RETRIEVER VS A SMALL DOG SYNDROME. OFTEN THE DOG CAN'T IDENTIFY WITH WHETHER HE IS A LARGE DOG OR A SMALL DOG. VERY UNPREDICTABLE.


WE USE  SMALL STANDARD POODLEs AND SMALL RETRIEVERS and DOODLES.

We breed mid sized dogs - 

Usually the back of the dog comes up to your knee, around 40-60 lbs.

We cannot promise or guarantee size. Or coat. This is a hybrid. Not a breed. 

Occasionally - a larger dog may be produced.  And coat is our best guess. Not a guarantee. 

When researching this hybrid you discover that there are factors that can 

on occasion create a straighter coat or varying sizes.

GOLDEN RETRIEVER  vs  LABRADOR RETRIEVER

Both are 'gun dogs' who retrieve the duck from the swamp for you.

They are are companion minded dogs who want to please you.

They aren't prey driven. Their purpose is to sit by your side and wait for instructions.

Most people don't realize standard poodles were bred for the SAME PURPOSE.

They are both retriever breeds so there are many similarities.

A golden Retriever is usually longer than a lab and looks much bigger and has a more bushier tail or a wavy hair when compared to a lab. Both shed a lot and grooming is essential to prevent matting. The Labrador has a short double coat; the golden has a double coat - one long one short. 

Both shed their under coat making them not very allergy friendly.

Both need to be brushed at least twice a week to remove the dead hair. 

Both have webbed paws and hence are excellent swimmers.

The personality of a lab can vary from one another but almost all labs are fun 

loving and outgoing. They are very friendly with the children and can play most of the day but do love their naps. The lab can be trained easily to perform various tasks right from fetching the newspaper to hunting. The golden retriever is more calmer but is very eager to please it's owners so training them is easy too. However they aren't as athletic or enthusiastic a Labrador. They also love to be around people and other dogs alike.

A Labrador makes a good watch dog and will bark at the sight of any intruder. However it is poor guard dog. The golden is not a good watch dog and can make friends with a stranger very quickly. Hence guarding is out.
