Goldendoodle Puppies in Phoenix, AZ: Coat Colors and Characteristics

A hybrid dog mixed with a Poodle is most likely to have low shedding coats. Many people with allergies react more to dander than to fur. Goldendoodles tend to have low dander and minimal shedding. Coats of Goldendoodles vary widely in color and curl.

Goldendoodle puppies range from having curly fur, a shaggy coat, to loose or wavy hair. At Copper Skye Doodles we breed dogs with the most suitable coats for those with allergies and the curl of the coat offers a wide range of choices. A Goldendoodle’s undercoat keeps it insulated to stay cool in the hot weather in Phoenix, AZ.

Goldendoodle puppies also come in a range of colors and patterns. One popular coat color is red with tones of apricot. Some Goldendoodles are more cream with darker golden undertones. Other Goldendoodles have black or chocolate colored coats.

Sizes of Goldendoodle Puppies in Phoenix, AZ

Goldendoodle puppies in Phoenix, AZ come in a variety of sizes. The size that fits you may depend on your current stage of life, your preferences, or simply acceptance of the puppy with whom you bond. Because Goldendoodles are hybrids (mixed breed) there is no standard or regulated criteria for their sizes. Every breeder creates their own size charts.

My Goldendoodle sizes by weight and height:

  • Petite Goldendoodle: 10-19 pounds and height 10”-13” full grown
  • Miniature Goldendoodle: 20-30 pounds and height 13-16” full grown
  • Medium Goldendoodle: 30-40 pounds and 15-22” height full grown
  • Standard Goldendoodle: 50-90 pounds and height 21-24” full grown

Families in Phoenix with young children may prefer Goldendoodle puppies that are medium to smaller size. Adults who enjoy walks with smaller dogs or live in a smaller space may prefer smaller or even miniature Goldendoodles. Standard Goldendoodles enjoy long walks and are just as affectionate as smaller size dogs.

I am always happy to discuss the size that is the best match for you or your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the temperament of a Goldendoodle?2022-05-04T09:16:18-07:00

Goldendoodles are an intelligent and obedient family companion. They are everybody’s friend and devoted to their family. They are friendly towards children, other dogs and pets, and easy with strangers. They are social dogs, happiest when with people. Goldendoodles are likely to get into mischief and develop behavior problems if they spend most of their lives alone. Their intelligence, eagerness to please, and love of learning make them very easy to train.

Do Goldendoodles need grooming?2022-05-04T09:16:07-07:00

Yes. As a hybrid cross, Goldendoodles will inherit fur that looks retriever-like, or poodle-like, but usually something in-between. Unclipped Goldendoodles will have hair about 4-7 inches long, shorter on the face and longer on the body, tail and legs. Without grooming, painful mats can form and your adorable pup will look neglected and unkempt. Expect to thoroughly comb or brush your Goldendoodle regularly (all the way down to the skin). A curly coat will require more brushing than a straight or wavy one. Head to a professional groomer every six to eight weeks or so.

How much exercise does a Goldendoodle need?2022-05-04T09:15:55-07:00

Goldendoodles are energetic, active dogs. Of course, some will be more active than others, but like all dogs, if not given moderate amount of exercise each day, they can easily get into trouble. Plan on your Goldendoodle needing at least two 30-minute periods of exercise per day. This can be accomplished through various means, such as brisk walks, jogging, hiking, swimming, agility work, or just good old-fashioned backyard playtime. Although exercise is needed, they can easily adapt to a life in the city or on a farm or anything in between.

What colors and patterns can a Goldendoodle be?2022-05-04T09:15:43-07:00

With a name like Goldendoodle, one might think that gold is the only color they come in, but nothing could be further from the truth! Goldendoodles come in a variety of colors, including black, chocolate, red, white, apricot, cream and brown. In addition to the wide variety of colors, Goldendoodles can also be found in a variety of patterns, including merle, brindle, phantom, sable, and parti. With the Poodle heritage and the Golden Retriever heritage both in play here, it’s not surprising that Goldendoodles come in so many colors and patterns. The Poodle and Golden Retriever ancestry both bring apricot, red, and cream to the mix. The same gene controls all three of these colors, but the intensity of the inherited gene is what determines the shade of the color.
Poodles also bring dark brown (chocolate), black, gray, and silver, as well as the patterns, to the mix.

The summary of colors from both Poodle and Golden Retriever is:

  • Apricot – From both Poodle and Golden Retriever
  • Red – From both Poodle and Golden Retriever
  • Cream – From both Poodle and Golden Retriever
  • Dark Brown (Chocolate) – Poodle Side
  • Black – Poodle Side
  • Gray – Poodle Side
  • Silver – Poodle Side
  • Blue – Poodle Side … Blue, in this case, is like a faded blackish gray
  • White – Poodle Side

The summary of patterns inherited from the Poodle is:

  • Solid Goldendoodle – This is one solid color.
  • Parti Goldendoodle– This combination is white on at least 50% of the body with solid patches of any other color. This unique color may be red parti, chocolate parti, black parti, cream parti, merle parti, apricot parti, or phantom parti. The choices are almost endless.
  • Merle Goldendoodle – This beautiful color is a combination of various colors. Because the merle gene can cause deafness or blindness, it’s a rare color.
  • Phantom Goldendoodle – Super hard to find phantom Goldendoodles comprise two colors – a base shade (solid chocolate or solid black) and a lighter one. The lighter points are usually to be found above the eyes (eyebrows), on the side of the chest, muzzle, inside the legs and under the tail. Most phantom Goldendoodles are commonly black and tan, but this can vary, e.g., brown and silver. Phantom is a recessive gene, so both parents would need to have it for the puppy to inherit this pattern (so it’s not found in the first generation). However, it’s easy to tell a phantom dog right off as puppies are born with these specific markings. They don’t develop over time like other patterns.
  • Sable Goldendoodle – Sable is a gene that gives the dog’s coat the appearance of two tones or colors, with the tips of the hair being black. While these dogs look either brown or black at birth, even at this early time, the root of the hair is much lighter than the tip. Sable Goldendoodles tend to hold onto their dark color around the face and ears. The rest of their coat settles into more of a cream or tan shade, although always with darker tips and lighter roots. This makes for a unique-looking dog!
  • Abstract Goldendoodles – Dogs with abstract coats are mostly one single color (be it any of the ones outlined above) with touches of white. These are usually found on their face and around their chest and paws. Such dogs are also referred to as mismarked.
  • Tuxedo Goldendoodles – Tuxedo Goldendoodles are another two-color mix. Any of the above colors are combined with white. However, the white is concentrated around the chest and front legs. This gives the pup the appearance of wearing a tuxedo (hence the name). As you can imagine, these dogs are popular because of their distinctive appearance – especially when in black and white. Their markings are apparent from birth. Although, naturally, the white splotches often begin small and get more prominent as the dog matures.
  • Brindle Goldendoodles – Brindle, another parti-color pattern, is rarely seen but looks truly striking when coupled with the doodle’s attractive features. This unique pattern of dark and light coat is arranged in such a way as to make the dog look like it has tiger stripes. While the width and color of these stripes vary from dog to dog, in Goldendoodles, it usually takes the form of a black or brown base coat with lighter colored stripes.
  • Tri-Colored Goldendoodles – With the increasing amount of multigenerational Goldendoodles, color options are becoming ever more varied. Tri-colored isn’t common to these dogs because this kind of coloring doesn’t occur in either Poodles or Golden Retrievers. However, it is very usual in other types like Bernedoodles (from the Bernese Mountain Dog). Often you will find that Goldendoodles that carry this coloring aren’t Goldendoodles, strictly speaking. They usually have a little of another breed in them – one that does carry the tri-color gene. Golden Mountain Doodles (Golden Retrievers, Bernese Mountain Dogs, and Poodles) are becoming increasingly popular, not least for their cool coloring.
Is one coat color or pattern better than another?2022-05-04T09:14:33-07:00

In all honesty, with no coat color or pattern being better than any other in terms of health and behavior, your choice of Goldendoodle should be based on temperament over looks. However, everyone has different preferences about these things. So, once you have ascertained that the puppies you are checking out are all good, you can choose the one that looks best to you. Keep in mind that the Poodle fading and silvering genes make it quite likely that your dood’s coat color will change as they get older. Usually, the intensity is reduced, and black dogs switch to gray or silver while red ones dull down to apricot or cream.

Should I get and male/boy or female/girl puppy?2022-05-04T09:14:43-07:00

There is no right or wrong answer to this question. Over the years I have discovered that there is very little difference between genders in terms of personality. By today’s standards most dogs are either spayed or neutered which levels the field by eliminating all hormones. I have males and females that are both sweet, smart, friendly, playful, loyal, gentle, etc. I also have some males and females that are highly energetic, mischievous, barkers, toy destroyers, etc. Bottom line, each and every dog/puppy has its own unique personality that’s his/hers alone, and that’s why we love them! However, I always tell prospective buyers that if they have a definite gender in mind then that’s the one they should go with.
