Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Multigenerational (fb) Mini-Goldendoodle?
A Mini-Goldendoodle is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. Our dogs are multigenerational meaning that 2 mini-goldendoodles are bred to create an equal golden retriever and mini-poodle hybrid. In doing this, we create a smaller goldendoodle that keeps more golden retriever characteristics. This includes the blockier head, physique and personality traits. When you cross two different breeds, they tend to have over-all better health and are less likely to inherit genetic diseases.
What is the temperment of a Mini-Goldendoodle?
Wicked smart. Very loving and loyal. Incredible family and/or therapy service dog. Warm and fun-loving.
What colors are Goldendoodles?
Dainty Doodle Mini-Goldendoodles are usually deep-red to a light-apricot. They do come in other colors, but these are the most common.
What type of hair do Mini-Goldendoodles have?
Dainty Doodle coat hair varies from a curly/wavy to wavy/straight. This depends on each individual puppy and the puppy parents. They are also non-shedding and hypoallergenic.
What are the differenced between Mini-Goldendoodles and Labradoodles?
The most obvious answer is that the Goldendoodle is the result of breeding a Golden Retriever with a Poodle while the Labradoodle is the result of breeding a Labrador Retriever with a Poodle. Dainty Doodles does not breed Labradoodles, however, we want you to be able to compare the two breeds.
When it comes to choosing between the two, it really comes down to what you want in a dog. If you desire a dog that is more calm, or if the dog is going to be used for therapeutic purposes, then you’ll probably want to choose a Goldendoodle. They tend to be more calm than the Labradoodle when taken into the hospital, nursing home or around family.
Both dogs are loyal to their masters and are extremely friendly, but sometimes the Labradoodle will be apprehensive about entering a new space, such as your home. They will tend to check things out thoroughly before they settle in. The Goldendoodle, on the other hand, feels right at home wherever he is. To enhance this innate sense of trust and balance, Daintydoodles makes it their priority to continually breed for the best possible temperament.
When it comes to using the dogs for working, the Labradoodle is generally stronger than the Goldendoodle. If the dog might be needed to pull a load or be trained for other physical service, the Labradoodle would generally be the better choice. They usually have a lot more energy and need a task to focus on.
One final difference to note is that the Labradoodle tends to weigh more than a comparable sized Goldendoodle. Our Mini-Goldendoodles weigh between 12-20 pounds full grown.
Daintydoodles will be happy to answer any questions you might have about Goldendoodles in general or more specifically about the Goldendoodle puppies we breed.
