FAQs on Adopting Your Mini Goldendoodle Puppy
If you have never raised Mini Goldendoodle puppies, here’s the deal — it’s a hoot! But there are some things you should know. Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
Are Mini Goldendoodles hypoallergenic?
The answer is yes, but… Hypoallergenic means – they are less likely to trigger allergies. They do shed, but only a very little bit. And hypoallergenic doesn’t mean ‘allergy free’.
How big do Mini Goldendoodles get?
Ours range from 25 to 35 pounds in weight. There are actually 4 different sizes of Goldendoodles: Petite, Mini, Medium and Standard.
Does a Mini Goldendoodle need grooming every day?
That depends on how active your puppy is, coat type and length. Active dogs (swimming and running in woods) and those with long coats will need daily brushing. Even though he sheds much less, his coat will need more maintenance than a flat coat breed. If you want lower maintenance, keeping the coat short is a good idea!
Are your Mini Goldendoodles health tested before breeding?
Yes, absolutely! It is important that parent breeds have genetic and OFA testing in order to minimize the risk of passing down hereditary disease.

What is a Mini Goldendoodle’s lifespan?

What is the temperament of a Mini Goldendoodle?
Miniature Goldendoodles may carry the relaxed, friendly temperament of the Golden Retriever, the playfulness and smarts of the Miniature Poodle, or more commonly, a mix of both! With plenty of love and guidance, your puppy will be the perfect new companion!
Are Mini Goldendoodles good with kids?
The question is really more of are your kids good with puppies? If your kids have ‘gentle hands’ and are old enough to safely interact (no teasing, pulling ears, and giving the puppy space), then the answer is yes, they are great with kids! As a bonus, they help tire each other out, which is a win/win!
-As always- we encourage supervision with puppies and young children.
