Thanks for joining us on our breed blog of the day, we will be talking about the very popular Miniature Goldendoodle!

In this blog, we will go over what makes this breed so lovable! Petland always has Miniature Goldendoodle puppies for sale!
First off, what is a Goldendoodle?
Well, the original Goldendoodle was a hybrid mix between a Golden Retriever and a Standard Poodle. The breed was introduced to the US in the early 1990s, after being bred earlier in parts of Australia. It was then realized that the Goldendoodle cross exhibited “hybrid vigor”. This is a phenomenon in animal breeding referring to the fact that the first cross between two unrelated purebred lines is healthier and grows better than either parent line. The hybrid cross between these two parent breeds are terrific family dogs, friendly, intelligent, affectionate and easy to train.
How did the Goldendoodle become a miniature?
After the Goldendoodle was introduced, its popularity soared, because it was like having two great breeds of dog in one! The only issue was that the Goldendoodle was a large breed dog and that doesn’t always work for a family. And while the Golden Retriever only came in one size, the Poodle came in three distinct sizes, standard, miniature and toy! With a little help on the breeding side, the Miniature Goldendoodle was born!
What are Miniature Goldendoodles like?
Goldendoodles are an intelligent and obedient family companion. Miniature Goldendoodles are friendly towards children, other dogs and pets, and easy with strangers. They are social dogs, happiest when with people. Their intelligence, eagerness to please, and love of learning make them very easy to train. They are small to medium sized family dogs with easy dispositions. They can range anywhere from 20-45lbs full grown.
What about different generations of Goldendoodles?
The first generation crosses, also called an F1, are between a Golden Retriever and a Miniature Poodle. Breeders are also doing an F2 cross, which is between two Miniature Goldendoodle parents and tend to be on the small side.
