Sandy Ridge Goldendoodles and Labradoodles

Sandy Ridge Goldendoodles and Labradoodles puppies is located in Southeast Iowa, in the beautiful Mississippi River Valley. Our goldendoodle and labradoodle puppies are raised to be the best pet for their new owners and come well socialized. These goldendoodles and labradoodles get lots of attention from a large family and are raised in a relaxed rural setting.


Health Guarantee

Our goldendoodle and labradoodle puppies for sale are intended to be in perfect health to the best of our knowledge. They come with a 7 day health guarantee and a 2 year genetic guarantee. Each puppy receives a physical examination by our licensed veterinarian for illnesses and genetic defects, and we require the new owners to visit their vet within 2 business days of acquisition.



We never want any of our goldendoodles or labradoodles to have to go through any physical pain, especially that which is caused by careless breeding of unhealthy dogs or the mistreatment of the puppy. Health of a puppy is our first concern, followed by the temperament which is explained below in the Training section.
 

Our Goldendoodle and Labradoodle Puppies

We raise Labradoodles and Goldendoodles. Our doodles are first generation, a cross between a Labrador or Golden Retriever and a Standard or Miniature Poodle. The first generation goldendoodles and labradoodles have a hybrid vigor common to first generation crosses. Hybrid, or F1, goldendoodle and labradoodles are less susceptible to common illnesses that are common to purebreds and are generally more allergy friendly than the retrievers. Most shed little and all are very intelligent. The type of coat on each of our labradoodle and goldendoodle puppies ranges from slightly wavy to extremely curly.

 

Update: we are no longer raising miniature labradoodle puppies due to inconsistent coat qualities. We have been more successful in achieving lower shedding and softer coats with the miniature goldendoodle breed.

Miniature Doodles

We started out breeding the standard Labradoodle and Goldendoodle breeds, but we now specialize in Miniature Labradoodles and Goldendoodles. These are also a first generation or first generation backcross hybrid crosses, but between the golden retriever and a miniature poodle breeds. Miniature, also known as mini, goldendoodles and labradoodles have become increasingly popular because they retain the same retriever doodles temperaments and coat qualities only in a little smaller package. These mini goldendoodles and mini labradoodles make ideal pets for families looking for a mid-sized dog. We have experienced a little more size variation with the miniature doodles, but most should stay in the 30-50 pound range (F1 miniature goldendoodle) or 15-35 pound range (F1b miniature goldendoodle).

We have had a number of miniature goldendoodle litters without the health problems that many breeders like to warn pet seekers of. As far as we know, there has been no proven health or genetic issues differing from standard breeding except that of irresponsible breeding of unhealthy Golden or Labrador retriever adults with unhealthy miniature poodles.

Training

One of the greatest qualities of goldendoodles and labradoodles is their ability to be easily trained. This results from their natural affection and desire to please. Despite this, training is one of the most important aspects of a goldendoodle or labradoodle puppy's life.

Temperament: When a puppy is first born, it requires most of its attention from its mother. By the time a goldendoodle or labradoodle reaches 4 weeks old, they become quite playful. It is at this age that we begin playing with and socializing each one individually. Socialization is the most important training a goldendoodle or labradoodle can have between 8 and 12 weeks old. This is where goldendoodles and labradoodles develop their temperaments that will stay with it for the rest of their dog life.

Obedience: Starting from 8-12 weeks old, goldendoodles and labradoodles should begin obedience training, whether with a professional, or at home. It is here a goldendoodle or labradoodle will learn which types of behavior are accepted and which are not. It is essential that goldendoodles and labradoodles learn who is the boss, yet the owner must treat a puppy with respect and care to achieve the best results for temperament and obedience. Potty training is also a type of obedience training. You must create a schedule or perform a certain activity to get the puppy accustomed to its potty routine. Other simple obedience training areas that must be addressed include: nipping, jumping, digging, chewing, and yard boundaries.
