Goldendoodle

The Groodle or Goldendoodle is a hybrid of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle (toy, miniature or standard). They have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. The aim of crossbreeding is to minimise the genetic diseases that can be present in purebred dogs. First-cross Goldendoodles will have the maximum genetic benefits associated with a hybrid dog – in other words, a Goldendoodle with one parent purebred Golden Retriever and one parent purebred Poodle will have less genetic diseases than second or third cross Groodle or Goldendoodles.
