As previously mentioned, Goldendoodles have no standard sizes, colours, coat, and overall appearance. Amid the differences, one thing is for sure: these dogs are adorable, cute and cuddly. Responsible breeders and enthusiasts are aiming to come up with healthy dogs with consistent appearance and disposition. The height can range from 56 to 66 centimetres at the withers, and its weight from 15 to 45 pounds. The range of size is divided into miniature, medium and standard, depending on which Poodle it is crossed with.
Most Groodles have a low to non-shedding coats that are also hypoallergenic. The hair is longer on the ears, body, tail, and legs, and shorter on the head and muzzle. The most common colours are white, gold, cream, chocolate, coffee, apricot, red, black, sandy brown, and grey. In terms of their coat, some come in tight and curly, while others have silky straight and flat. Puppies from the same litter can differ widely in colour and coat.
Even though they shed minimally, Goldendoodles need to be groomed regularly to ensure their coats remain beautiful and clean. For owners opting to keep it in a natural state, brushing is needed at least once or twice a week. For easier maintenance, have it professionally clipped a few times a year. However, brushing and trimming on their feet are still required every two weeks. Bathing can be done as needed as to retain natural oils and necessary moisture.
A dog’s coat is not the only aspect that needs attention. Ensure that its nails are trimmed, ears cleaned and skin free from ticks and fleas. To build strong teeth, as well as avoid bad breath and gum issues, brush its teeth regularly and provide appropriate chew toys.
