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

a cross between a Labrador or Golden Retriever and a Standard or
Miniature Poodle. The first generation goldendoodles
have a hybrid vigor common to first generation crosses. Hybrid, or F1,
goldendoodle 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 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.

same retriever doodles temperaments and coat qualities only in a little
smaller package. These mini goldendoodles 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, 15-35 pound range
(F1b miniature goldendoodle), or 10-25 pound range (multigen miniature
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

One of the greatest qualities of goldendoodles 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 puppy's life.
When a puppy is first born, it requires most of its attention from its
mother. By the time a goldendoodle 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 can have between 8 and
12 weeks old. This is where goldendoodles develop their
temperaments that will stay with it for the rest of their dog life.
Obedience: Starting from 8-12 weeks old, goldendoodles
should begin obedience training, whether with a professional, or at
home. It is here a goldendoodle will learn which types of
behavior are accepted and which are not. It is essential that
goldendoodles 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.
