When do I get my F1 Mini Goldendoodle spayed or neutered?

When do I get my F1 Mini Goldendoodle spayed or neutered?

Most veterinarians in the United States recommend bitches and dogs be spayed or castrated between 6 and 9 months of age. This is not based in science; no one has performed a large-scale study in which bitches and dogs underwent gonadectomy at various ages and were tracked throughout life to determine what abnormalities developed relative to age at gonadectomy. It is thought that the current age recommendation arose after the World War II, when increasing affluence of American families first permitted them to treat animals as household pets and were, therefore, more interested in controlling manifestations of reproductive hormone secretion and very interested in making sure the animal survived surgery. Anesthetic and surgical techniques available at that time necessitated the animal be at least 6 months of age.

When will my F1 Mini Goldendoodle stop chewing on stuff?

Published January 20, 2016 by barthainz

The desire to chew on things is a usally a resutl of the Puppy Teething

The desire to investigate interesting objects and the discomfort of teething motivate puppies to chew. Much like human infants, puppies go through a stage when they lose their baby teeth and experience pain as their adult teeth come in. This intensified chewing phase usually ends by six months of age. Some recommend giving puppies ice cubes, special dog toys that can be frozen or frozen wet washcloths to chew, which might help numb teething pain. Although puppies do need to chew on things, gentle guidance can teach your puppy to restrict chewing to appropriate objects, like his own toys. Please see Useful Tips, under Normal Chewing Behavior, to channel your puppy’s urge to chew in the right direction.

What size crate should I buy for my Mini Goldendoodle

Published November 6, 2015 by barthainz

I found these pictures on line. That are awesome and very help help for some of us visual learners in the world.
Our Mini Goldendoodle females usually weigh very close to 20 pounds when adults and our male Mini Goldendoodles usually weigh between 25 and 30 pounds.   I think if you have the room in your house I would go with the 35.6″ L X 22″ W X 24.4″ H 36″ Large it my seem huge in the beginning put as you can see in the lower picture there is not a lot of extra room for a water or food bowl.

We bought a Petco Model 600 (up to 40lbs) 30″ x 19″ x 21″ crate with 2 doors (get the one with two doors so you can use in either direction) before we brought her home based on the breeders recommendation (2 doors in my recommendation).  We had the divider in it as Rua weighed all of 4lbs sopping wet when we brought her home.

This is Rua in her crate 5 months ago.  She was 4-1/2 months old here and weighed about 9-1/2lbs.

Here she is today.  She is 10 months, 1 week and 2 days (give or take a minute or two) and weighs just under 17lbs.  She is under 12″ at shoulder.  I don’t think she is going to get too much bigger…she hasn’t changed much weigh-wise in a few months.  Rua has plenty of room in this crate even though she can’t STRETCH out (she lays on the floor in a squashed frog postion, usually).

Is a Goldendoodle the Right Dog for You?

Published November 6, 2015 by barthainz

I found this article by Anthony Jorgensen what a very supportive article on what a wonderful breed the Goldendoodle is.

Is a Goldendoodle the Right Dog for You?

What is the breed of a dog that is a combination of charm, wit and loyalty? The answer is no other than the goldendoodle. The goldendoodle is a mixed breed of golden retriever and a poodle. Everybody seems crazy over this amazing pet, many families in US are thinking of owning a goldendoodle as the first family’s pet.

Are you thinking of owning one too? Here are the reasons why goldendoodle is the right dog for you.

1. Goldendoodles are hypoallergenic.

Goldendoodle is typically a low-shedding hybrid, which is good for people who love dogs yet sensitive to shedding hair. Though goldendoodle does shed to some degree, but breeders claim it is hypoallergenic. However, allergists believe that there is no such thing as a hypoallergenic animal. But testimonies from dog lovers claim it otherwise.

2. They are definitely adorable.

Goldendoodle’s sizes vary. They can be somewhere between standard, medium and miniature. The breeders say you can estimate the size of a goldendoodle by just adding the sizes of the parents and divide it by 2. They weigh around 40-100 lbs. They also have different coat types. They can be curly and cuddly, wavy and funny, straight and sweet. The common colors available for goldendoodles are white, cream, apricot and red. There are also rare colors such as brown, phantom and part-colored.

3. Innately fun-loving.

Goldendoodle is definitely a dog for the entire family. They are not afraid of water, they even love swimming. If there is one dog for kids that will make parents comfortable, this is the right choice for you. They look friendly, kids will not be frightened of them. It is also easier to teach new tricks to this kind of dog. They can be easily trained and go easily with strangers.

4. Instant companion.

Goldendoodles are the plug and play kind of dogs. They run, sit and play around the whole day. As if energy is continuously supplied to them. They easily interact with people. They can be instant friends if you feel down and weary, just take a look at how they live their lives, it would surely give you a lift.

Goldendoodles are the kind of dogs that anyone wishes to have. Thus, if you already own one, there are some responsibilities expected as goldendoodles owner.

The average lifespan of this variety is approximately 9-15 years. Quite expensive but it feels like you have an instant toddler. They need to be groomed as often as necessary. They need regular brushing or combing every week. That would mean a trip to pet salon a couple of times, this will be part of your monthly routines. In addition, don’t let your goldendoodle just lay down the whole day, they require moderate exercise. They love water, so let them swim. They also like the idea of daily walk in the park. Yes, you are right. They are quite health-conscious 🙂
