Micro Goldendoodles—small in scope, big in fun
Like other types of Goldendoodles, micros are a cross between Poodles (toy or teacup) with Golden Retrievers. However, in order to downsize the adult retrievers, they are first bred with Cocker Spaniels.
Micro Goldendoodles are the favorite of families who fall in love with the breed’s charming personality and allergy-friendly fur, but who just don’t have the room or energy for a big dog in their life.
By paying extra attention during the breeding process, we’re able to eliminate both breeds’ undesirable traits (such as the retriever’s notorious shedding or the toy Poodle’s tendency to have Napoleon Syndrome) and maximize their desirable traits (like the retriever’s friendliness and the Poodle’s hypoallergenic coat).
How big are micro Goldendoodles?
Micro Goldendoodles are super tiny, with adults weighing between less than 15 pounds and standing up to 14 inches tall at the wither.
The important thing to look for when choosing a micro Goldendoodle breeder is how the breeder guarantees temperament and coat quality while simultaneously achieving the desired size.
It’s well known that small Poodle varieties can have problems with temperament that could surface in hybrid dogs without careful breeding—so don’t just choose a breeder based on the size of pups they have available!
Should I buy a micro Goldendoodle?
One the first considerations by most people looking for very small types of Goldendoodles is the size of their home and yard, but simply having a big house doesn’t mean your dog is getting enough exercise to stay happy and healthy.
Yes, micro Goldendoodles need less physical exertion than their bigger cousins. But just because they’re small doesn’t mean micros are content sitting inside all day!
All Doodles love to play, and keeping your new pup happy means giving them an outlet for their energy.
With that said, the micro Goldendoodle is perfect for people who just don’t have the energy or space for a big dog.
