labradoodles and goldendoodles are
f1B - meaning 3/4ths poodle. This is
the minimum amount of poodle
normally offered in a doodle. So the
poodle genetic input is the most
important factor when deciding.
We are established miniature poodle breeders. While most doodles are based on standard
or moyen poodles, which are just smaller standards, ours stem from champion, health-
tested miniatures. The difference is huge.
Standard poodles have a very small gene pool and many health issues. Standards are also
true hunting dogs and have a strong prey drive. Standards have a wonderful temperament
but it is a standard poodle temperament, rather serious and a bit protective.
Miniature poodles have a diverse gene
pool and are the most healthy of all three
poodle sizes. Miniatures are not hunting
dogs at all, but are strictly companion
dogs. When you think of a miniature, you
think of that wonderful circus dog on its
hind feet dancing, merry and lively and
Standard poodles are a very tall dog and
even bred “down” a generation, most
labradoodles are 35 to 55 pounds and 18”
to 23” tall at the shoulder.
Miniature poodles range from 10” to 15” at the shoulder. With our parentage, our
miniature labradoodles are the perfect size, ranging approximately 16 to 24 pounds and
14” to 18” at the shoulder.
Want to go for a run or a hike or a swim? You can take one of ours along. Want to put your
dog in the car or on the couch? You can easily lift ours up. Did it rain last night and your dog
is muddy and needs a bath? Lift ours up, put in the sink and wash away. Have an elderly
person in the house? Ours are big enough to not be underfoot but small enough to not
bump into them and knock them down. Have a small child? Same thing. Just the right size to

Early Spay/Neuter Debate
The Labradoodle and Goldendoodle community seems to
have evolved toward many breeders doing early
spay/neuter, prior to 10 weeks of age. While this is
ostensibly done to offer a convenience to the new pet
owner, it actually began as a way to protect the breeding
bloodlines from unscrupulous breeders who wanted to
jump on to the "doodle" craze and bypass the years of
hardwork that go into creating gorgeous Labradoodles.
However, in 2013, several studies were released which
implicated spay/neuter prior to one year of age as
doubling the incidence of hip dysplasia and greatly
increasing the chance of certain cancers. We quote below
from UC Davis Veterinary School News, 2-13-2013.
Based on the research that we quote below, and our first-
hand knowledge of the effect of early spay/neuter on other breeds as well as other species,
we do not believe Labradoodles or any dog should be neutered early. Removing growth
hormones at an early age is dangerous and damaging.
"The researchers chose to focus on the golden retriever
because it is one of the most popular breeds in the U.S.
and Europe and is vulnerable to various cancers and joint
disorders. The breed also is favored for work as a service
dog. The research team reviewed the records of female
and male golden retrievers, ranging in age from 1 to 8
years, that had been examined at UC Davis’ William R.
Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital for two joint disorders and three cancers:
hip dysplasia, cranial cruciate ligament tear, lymphosarcoma, hemangiosarcoma and mast
cell tumor. The dogs were classified as intact (not neutered), neutered early (before 12
months age), or neutered late (at or after 12 months age).
The study revealed that, for all five diseases analyzed, the disease rates were significantly
higher in both males and females that were neutered either early or late compared with
intact (non-neutered) dogs.
