Do I want a more laid back or a more active puppy?
If you answered “active”, we would suggest a female puppy. Often they need more mental stimulation than male dogs and in turn need more activity. If you answered “Laid Back”, we would suggest you purchase a male puppy.
How are your puppies raised?
Our philosophy stands firm that all of our breeding dogs live in either our home, or our guardian family homes, as a key member of the family.
Our puppy nursery is part of our home and allows for 24/7 care. We bring all of our expecting mamas into our home to closely monitor their deliveries as well as their care of the puppies. We document the major milestones the puppies go through during the first 8-weeks of their life.
Most importantly, the round the clock care provides ample opportunities for us to photograph and video the puppies’ growth to share with their forever families.
Are golden doodles good with children or other pets?
The answer is – yes! This totally fits in with their personality. Golden doodles are wonderful family pets, especially when introduced to children at an early age.
At Tande’s Tails we expose the puppies to children of varying ages during the first 8-weeks. Our three young boys love toddling around with the puppies, but we also encourage children of various ages being introduced towards the end of their time with us.
I just brought my puppy home and he/she is...
1. CRYING IN THEIR CRATE – First, try taking the puppy outside to see if it needs to potty. If the puppy just starts to play and does not do it’s business within 5 minutes, return it to it’s crate. Unfortunately, your puppy needs to “cry it out” in the crate. We recommend a snuggle puppy, this should also help. DO NOT take the puppy out and let it sleep with you. This means the puppy has won.
2. NOT WANTING TO EAT – Don’t panic. There have been a lot of changes happening in your puppy’s life in the last few days. Just give it some time or spice up their kibble by drizzling some chicken or beef broth over it.
3.HAVING ACCIDENTS IN THE HOUSE – Unfortunately, this is just a part of being a puppy! Please refer to the guide in your puppy’s go-home booklet.
What is the personality of a golden doodle?
Such a great question! This is why we breed this amazing breed. Being a hybrid, the golden doodles pick up on the best traits of both breeds: the intelligence and trainability of the poodle and the loveable personality of the english cream retriever.
How much does a puppy cost?
Our golden doodles cost a total of $2,300. You’ll need to pay $300 up front in order to be added to the waitlist and the remaining $2,000 before you can pick up your puppy.
