No matter what size dog you choose, each one needs your love and attention every day. Mini golden doodles are beautiful dogs with their long, flowing coats, but that coat also needs to be brushed regularly to keep it from tangling or matting and to ensure your mini golden doodle stays healthy. Let’s take a look at some of the important considerations when buying a mini golden doodle as well as tips for making sure you’re ready to take on the responsibility of having one of these wonderful dogs in your life.
Miniature or Toy Golden Retriever?
If you’re thinking about buying a Miniature or Toy Golden Retriever, there are a few considerations you should make. One of these considerations is size. Are you okay with a dog that is around 17 inches in height? If so, then yes: getting one of these dogs would be great for your family! However, if you don’t want to have a small dog, we do not recommend getting a Miniature or Toy breed.
Choosing Between a Male or Female Dog
If you’re going to bring a dog into your home, you’ll have to make an important decision early on: male or female? Although neutering and spaying has become a standard in dog parenting, some people want their dogs to be able to reproduce. In that case, one of your main considerations will be deciding whether to get a male or female pup. Let’s look at how you can choose between these two options.
Choosing The Right Breeder
It’s important to find a reputable breeder when buying a mini golden doodle. Reputable breeders have their dogs registered with a professional organization and they participate in showing, obedience, agility or other performance events. If you can’t visit their home and kennel facilities, ask to see photographs of where they keep their dogs. It’s also a good idea to talk with someone who has bought one of their puppies in order to get recommendations on specific breeders.
Basic Mini Goldendoodle Care
Mini goldendoodles need similar care to regular goldendoodles, with a few key differences. First and foremost, they’re much smaller than their cousins. As such, they can overheat more easily and are prone to joint injuries and bone breaks. Always provide them with a cool place to rest and never overwork them or make them run long distances; you don’t want an injured doodle!
Feeding Your Miniature Goldendoodle
Miniature Goldendoodles, like their standard cousins, are omnivores, meaning they will eat a variety of different foods in order to meet their nutritional needs. The most important thing is to feed your puppy a healthy diet—not an excessive amount of food and not too little food either.
How Much Do Miniature Goldendoodles Shed?
Miniature Goldendoodles, or Minnie Goldies as they are affectionately known, are one of America’s favorite dog breeds. But just like other dogs that shed, Minis need grooming to keep them clean and comfortable. The good news is, Minis don’t shed as much as you think they would! Let’s break down exactly how much hair a Mini sheds compared to other dog breeds.
Common Health Issues with Miniature Goldendoodles
One of the most common health issues in miniature Goldendoodles is Hypothyroidism. This condition can be detected through a simple blood test and has many treatment options. Many Goldendoodle breeders are now choosing to have their dogs tested for thyroid deficiencies before breeding to eliminate future cases of hypothyroidism in their puppies.
Breeding two dogs that both have normal thyroid levels will lower your chances of producing an animal with hypothyroidism but it’s not guaranteed. It’s also possible that one parent could pass along a faulty gene, even if both parents seem healthy. Having your puppy checked by a vet after getting home will help ensure early detection of any potential problems so they can begin treatment sooner rather than later.
