Welcome!

Finding the Perfect Pet Can Be Easy, But There’s Lots to Consider!

In recent years goldendoodles have become very popular and for good reason. Goldendoodles make wonderful companions and are very attuned to their people, however, that growing popularity has also meant there has been an increase in breeding for different reasons. You can now find a variety of different doodle mixes, colors, coat types, etc. but sometimes not much attention is given to the temperment of the dogs being bred. While there are many examples of wonderful doodles, this overbreeding also gives us examples of goldendoodles who are hyper and difficult to manage and train.

Our focus is and always has been breeding puppies with well-rounded, attentive and good temperments. We are a small breeder, and always will be, which allows us to spend more time with the puppies and invest in producing a quality puppy so they fit well into a wide variety of homes.

We start early and use the Puppy Culture protocols during those first two months of life, along with the early socialization program called ENS, Early Neurological Stimulation. We have found that these two programs get the pups used to being more sensitive and attentive to their people, eager to learn and makes them easier to train.

This is a big reason for our interview process, to make sure new families have a good understanding of what it means to be a good doodle owner. Goldendoodles are cute and adorable, BUT they are very intelligent. If they are not offered some type of training, they get bored and will develop their own program, which you may or may not approve of.

Not all of our puppies go on to be service dogs or therapy dogs, but even if our puppies are only chosen as companions and pets, this early training gives all of our puppies a good start and is what we feel is our Rainfield difference, 

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a difference in temperment between standard and mini goldendoodles?

With the increased popularity of goldendoodles, we are often asked if the mini goldendoodles (20-40 lbs) have the same temperment as the standard sized goldendoodles (45 lbs and up)? 

We haven’t noticed a big difference in temperment between our smaller doodles versus the standards. They are all very sweet and have those attentive, curious doodle temperments. 

In trying to decide between the two, we recommend that you take your living situation into account. Do you have space for a larger dog? If not, a mini might be a better solution. 

One consideration in size is if you have very small children. We enjoyed having the an F1 standard sized doodle when our grandchildren were smaller. Our F1 was were hardier to the rough and tumbling little ones and made excellent playmates, never complaining about wearing a tutu, or having to wear a dragon costume. 

Larger dogs are also a better fit if you are active and are looking for a dog who can keep up with you on hikes or while out running. 

Help for choosing between a male and female?

We are often asked about the differences between males and females. 

We have had wonderful dogs of both genders. We don’t feel the gender itself is the biggest indicator, but rather the temperment of the individual dogs. In other words, rather than focusing on whether you want a male or a female, think about what your needs are and find out which pup might be the best fit. Do you want a more playful or active dog that can keep up with you on a hike or out running? Do you want a more chilled, laid back dog that loves snuggling and lounging around, getting dressed up by young kiddos and so on? 

Dogs of both sexes will need to be spayed or neutered to prevent males from lifting their leg and peeing and females from having messy heats, but our goldendoodles generally take about a year to a year and a half to mature to that point which gives you time to get them fixed before you need to worry about that.  

What does grooming look like with a doodle?

Goldendoodles are known for their beautiful, generally low-shed, coats. However, it takes some time for them to get their full-adult coat in and they go through two or three coat changes in the first couple years. Daily brushing with a steel 9″ comb that gets down to the skin can help prevent matting of puppy coat as the adult coat is growing in. 

The Goldendoodle type or generation can affect the type of coat you can expect as well. F1 Goldendoodles, the original retriver/poodle mix, can have coats that are shaggy wavy or curlier. F1b goldendoodles tend to be a little curlier since they are now 3/4 poodle. Both styles of coats need regular brushing, grooming and clipping. 

If you go too long between groomings or brushing, you run the risk of your goldendoodle developing mats, which, if bad enough, will require a closer trim or shave.  There are special brushes and mat rakers you can get that make it easier. Ask us about this when you pick up your puppy.
