Classification in Breeding

Breeders produce mini goldendoodles in a few different ways:

F1 – 50% Golden Retriever and 50% Poodle: The much-healthier first generation doodles can have varying puppies in the same litter and are commonly smooth-haired like the retriever or wavy like the wolfhound.

F1-B – 25% Golden Retriever and 75% Poodle (F1 Goldendoodle and Poodle cross): These puppies are goldendoodle bred back to Poodle.

F2 – F1 Goldendoodle and F1 Goldendoodle cross: This combination produces the same percentage of golden poodle mix as the F1 goldendoodle.

F3 – Cross between Goldendoodle and F2 Goldendoodle.

Multi-generation – Cross between F3 or higher generation Goldendoodle and F3 or higher generation Goldendoodle.


The gentle, social, affectionate, loving and playful human-oriented breed has developed the motivation of different activities by their interactive abilities. They go well with children.



These active dogs need exercise regularly around 20-30 minutes, like walking, boisterous playtime with family and toys. Some individuals enjoy swimming too.


These colorful dogs need brushing frequently for a healthy coat. Trim their coats and clip nails only by experienced trimmer to avoid pain or bleeding, from time to time, but do not bathe them frequently, but only when necessary, since that would only unbalance their skin’s essential oils. Brush their teeth twice/thrice a week to avoid tartar deposition and gum diseases. Also check their ears, eyes, nose, mouth or feet regularly for odor, rashes or redness. Use a pH-balanced ear cleaner using a cotton ball.


This affectionate breed, going well with the owner, his family and other people, are calm and easy-going, and would wait patiently for attention.

Health Problems

Hip dysplasia is a common health problem to mini goldendoodles. Since the parents are both susceptible to this disease, hence, before dogs are bred, an OFA or PennHIP exam is necessary to check for hip dysplasia. There are several other diseases which might as well pester your dog from time to time like ear infections, mostly yeast infections, and also Von Willebrands disease (vWD).


Feed your dog with meat, or meat supplements. Raw or semi-cooked meat is healthy for them. For kibble, opt for only high-quality ones meant for active breeds. You can also add either a wild fish oil or organic coconut oil for added health benefits. The daily recommended amount for dry dog food is 1 to 4 cups of a day. To keep a mini goldendoodle in good shape, it is advisable to measure its food and feed it two times a day. It is better if the food is not left out all the day for it to feed. Instead of one large meal, these little dogs should be served several small meals per day.


They are intelligently trainable with both its parents being extremely intelligent, being able to pick up training quickly, if trained from puppyhood.

Interesting Facts

  • The coat of the mini goldendoodle tends to lighten with age.
  • Unlike many other dog breeds, mini goldendoodles get along well with children of all ages.
  • In the United States, there are many mini goldendoodles who are in need of adoption and fostering.

Buying/Adopting Mini Goldendoodle Puppies from Breeders

Buy the puppies from reputed breeders, best through reliable sources, to ensure the seller/breeder has enough information about the puppy, its fore-parents etc. Since both parents are vulnerable to hip dysplasia, before dogs are bred, an OFA or PennHIP exam is necessary to check for this problem.

    It is Illegal for someone to sell you a puppy at 4 weeks old. The puppy by law, has to be at least 8 weeks old. If the puppy is a small breed, then it’s betetr for the puppy in the long run, if you wait until it’s 10-12 weeks old! At 4 weeks old, the puppy should still be nursing from it’s mom and it’s not weaned yet. A puppy that young can Die, if you take it away from the mother too soon. If you are looking for a very good quality dog bed, then you are going to pay for it. They are not cheap!
