  • My first Goldendoodle...

    I had on my schedule a Goldendoodle that was in boarding, and I thought, "Ohhhhh myyyyy gosh, what am I going to do? Nobody told me it was here...." So I look all over for this overgrown, hairy beast, but to no avail. I looked downstairs in boarding for the big dogs, and upstairs in the surgery run where they occasionally put them. Nope. She was in the small kennels in the cat room.

    This is my goldendoodle: (apparently the "oodle" part of this doodle is a mini!)

      That doesn't look like any GD I've ever seen or groomed. Looks like a poor quality (but sweet) Golden R.

        That definitely doesn't have much doodle in it. Looks like something the animal shelter took a look at and said lets call this golden mix a golden doodle so someone will adopt him.

            Wanahhhhhhhhhhh

            I want ALL goldendoodles to look like that. I'm so glad it worked out so well for you. But i think someone called it a doodle to get more $$$$ cus that dosen't look like any GD i've ever seen.

              What a cutie, lol. I actually groom a family of three that look very similar to this one. They are golden, cocker mixes, and they look it!

              I know that everyone on here has problems with golden/labradoodles, but I love them. Generally all of the ones I do are in great shape, and they usually have the best of both worlds (all the good aspects of both breeds). Adorably cute, sweet, etc. I wouldn't mind owning one!

                My first thought when I read the title was "my condolences!" But then when I saw the picture I felt much better for you.

                  Tammy, you lucked out with a tiny one...I see a bit of spaniel though.

                  I agree with you Lauren. I love the doodles I groom. They have quite the personality and are hilarious critters. I pet-sit on the side for 2 of them and when they're in my home, they're part of the family. They're intelligent and sweet and well-behaved. I can't say that about alot of the purebred dogs I groom.

                    Exactly what I thought.

                      I'd have to agree that you got lucky on that cutie! I'd groom that one any day... as for the goldendoodles, that's another story...lol. I dread grooming them... I've groomed two so far and they had the build of the golden (large and pretty thick) with long, unruly curly hair going every which way. And of course the owner never wants them shaved, which means that your arm is going to be so sore the next day from all that brushing. I just never know what kind of cut to give them, the owners usually just say to make them cute?? They're just a crazy mix if you ask me... not the most intelligent dogs either imo.

                          My thoughts exactly!!!!! So glad it turned out so well for you. She really is kind of a cute little gal isn't she.

                            I agree 100% Golden but bad quality.

                              my first goldendoodle

                              I did my first goldendoodle about 2 weeks ago and all I can say is - You Lucked Out! Mine looked more like a small standard poodle with hair about 5 inches long and a solid cast. The dog was about 8 months old w/ an owner who was "brushing her every day". Glad yours turned out better than mine
