The Double Doodle: The Perfect Family Dog
The Double Doodle Dog
Puppies require a lot of exercise to burn off their exuberant supply of energy. It's hard to go for a walk with Belle or play in the yard, without a passerby inquiring about what type of dog she is. It's like walking around with a celebrity!
Belle is now getting to the point at 5 months old that she tries jumping on people as they walk by. Her leash of course is kept short, and sometimes we're not sure what to expect - the ooh's and ahh's and high pitched screams about how adorable Belle is... or unkind remarks that our puppy needs training. Well, hello, she is a puppy after all and quite well trained but that's besides the point. Most people are friendly towards her and want to inquire about what exactly the type of dog she is!
We then get into the whole doodle discussion. Sometimes saying she is a goldendoodle is slightly easier as some assume she is. But the ones we do share the whole double doodle conversation with thoroughly enjoy learning something new and have been amused and fascinated at the cute term Double Doodle.
So, I thought this article would be fun to create as a means of informing everyone about this awesome breed of dog and to share some lovely photos of Belle, her mom and dad, as well as some of her beautiful litter mates!
Keep on reading to learn all about the Double Doodle dog!
The popular goldendoodle is the cross between a golden retriever and a poodle, two awesome dogs.
Golden retrievers are very lovable dogs due to their friendly, tolerant attitude consistent with this breed. Of course they are very fun to play catch with and swim.
The poodle contributes to the low-allergy, low-shed, hypoallergenic coat the double doodle generally has. They are very intelligent and many show dogs are poodles.
Goldendoodles make wonderful family pets. Besides being ridiculously cute, they are great with kids, loyal, smart and a wonderful addition to your home.
Cute Goldendoodle Puppies!
The labradoodle is a cross between the labrador retriever and the poodle.
The labradoodle was originally developed to be hypoallergenic guide dogs. Not all labradoodle's are hypoallergenic, however it is a quality many look for but varies depending on their specific coat.
A labradoodle is happiest when they are with the people they love. They have the energy of the labrador retriever and the work ethic of both the lab and the poodle.
The labrador retriever, one of the most popular dogs in the United States, are known for their kind, pleasant temperament. They love retrieving balls, frisbees or participating in other forms of physical activities.

Meet the Parents
Dixie is the mother of Belle, and is a goldendoodle. She weighs 40 lbs, and is apricot in color. She has a wonderful, sweet, loving disposition and makes a great family dog.
Yankee is the father of Belle and is a 60 lb labradoodle. He is very sweet natured, loving, family oriented, and well behaved! He loves to hike and is great off lead!
The puppies were born at the breeder's home and never in cages or kennel. Dixie and Yankee were lovingly cared for and proper nutrition fed to them as it is so important for long term health.
We were able to meet both Dixie and Yankee when visiting the pups before making our final decision. Dixie hopped lovingly into the pen with her puppies and snuggled them all. Such a sweet momma!
Dixie and Yankee-Litter of Double Doodles
Dixie's litter of ten puppies were born on Valentine's Day 2016. What perfect timing considering they are all such beautiful, sweet puppies!
The photos below (and Harry above) are some of Belle's brother's and sister's. They all look a bit different; some coats are wavier than others.

Choosing a Double Doodle
Double Doodle's have such a great mix of desirable traits from the golden retriever, labrador retriever and poodle; three great breeds. They are smart, fun, lovable, loyal and super sweet dogs.
No one double doodle dog is the same, just like no dog is the same or no person is the same! The coat of a double doodle varies whether it is wavy, curly or flat. Some may shed more than others and some require more grooming. Regardless, their sweet demeanor is consistent which makes them the ideal candidate for those looking for a new puppy for their home!
