Golden Mountain Doodle?

What's a

IMG_3984.PNG

A Golden Mountain Doodle (GMD) is a doodle made up of three breeds,

the Poodle, the Bernese Mountain Dog, and the Golden Retriever

Most often this is accomplished by breeding a bernedoodle to a goldendoodle (as seen above), but can also be accomplished by breeding a purebred poodle to a golden mountain dog (golden/bernese cross). 

 Our primary goals in producing GMDs are to make dogs ideal for service and therapy work,
as well as amazing family companions.

 

We are carefully selecting for the best of each breed's traits:
the low shedding coat, intelligence, and longevity of the POODLE,
the calm and loyal demeanor of the BERNESE,
and the affability of the GOLDEN.

 

All of our GMD puppies will be furnished (fluffy facial hair) and low shedding, but coat types can be straight, wavy, or curly. We test all of our parent dog's coat genetics as well as individual puppy genetics so that we can predict the coat type our pups will have at adulthood. Being able to select for low shedding coat types makes this breed ideal for work in public and to live with families with mild allergies.

 

Aesthetically, our goal is to create tricolor as well as golden colored puppies that resemble the traditional goldendoodle and bernedoodles everyone loves! This is a uniquely challenging endeavor and requires in depth knowledge of color genetics to produce these gorgeous patterns! 

We plan to produce GMD puppies in medium and standard size, between 35-75 pounds. We will not be producing "minis" because of our goals to produce versatile working dogs that can do a "job". 

 

Our GMD puppies are raised with care, in our home, using a service dog curriculum. Each puppy comes with individual genetic testing through Embark and will be temperament tested prior to placement with families. Individual genetic testing allows us to better predict coat type and potential for shedding. Temperament testing helps us to match each puppy's personality, strengths, and weaknesses to the best family or "job"! We pride ourselves on providing a lot of information to our clients so that they can make educated and thoughtful decisions and so that these matches last a lifetime!
