Moss Creek Goldendoodle puppies are high achievers. All of our puppies are loved and socialized from the minute they are born. They are stimulated using the Early Neurological Stimulation method. We expose them to new sounds, smells, surfaces to walk on, people of all sizes, dogs, etc.. Between 4 and 5 weeks, they enjoy our brand new "Puppy Nursery" that was designed just for them. Everything they need for a healthy, positive start in life was incorporated in our new nursery. We start introducing our puppies to the crate at 3 weeks. By 8 weeks they're all sleeping in individual crates at night. This early head start to crate training makes the transition to your home less stressful for the puppy and you! You can read what our puppy owners have to say about their Moss Creek puppy on our forum and on the reference page. We have hundreds of references from very happy Goldendoodle owners.
Since your new Goldendoodle puppy will be a friend/family member for life, our goal is to match you with the right puppy. Our puppies are temperament tested using the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test. This along with your puppy application, phone interview, emails and pictures, helps us match the perfect puppy with your family and lifestyle.

For the Families interested in obtaining a fully trained Goldendoodle puppy - we offer a one of a kind puppy training program called McDoodles Boot Camp for Puppies. This program is specifically tailored for Moss Creek Goldendoodle puppies. Other 8 week old puppies are not to the level our puppies are at with crate training, socialization, stimulation and manners. The foundation we build from 0-8 weeks is crucial for this early puppy hood training. Depending on the length of stay, Moss Creek Goldendoodles go home from Boot Camp potty trained - ringing their bells to be let out to potty, they know all their basic commands and follow them proudly. They are socialized and exposed to kids, cats, adults, car rides, dogs, birds and anything else the trainer feels would help. They are loving taught manners and not to nip and jump - to walk on leash by kids and adults. Weather permitting - the puppies are taught to swim and how to find their way out of a pool. You can read references and testimonials from families who sent their puppy to McDoodles Boot Camp for Puppies here.

Experience: Moss Creek Goldendoodles was the first to breed English F1B Goldendoodles in the US and to our knowledge, the world. Our first Goldendoodle who is now 9 was from the very first litter of English F1 Goldendoodles ever bred. For 9+ years Goldendoodles have been our life and our passion. At least once a week someone tells me they can pick a Moss Creek Goldendoodle out in a sea of Goldendoodles or they stop traffic to ask a family where they got their dog. Our Goldendoodles have a very distinct look to them and they have amazing temperaments. This comes from 9 years of hands on experience and having a close relationship with a Veterinarian, Trainer and Animal Behaviorist.

About The Breed: Goldendoodle
The term Goldendoodle (Golden Doodle) describes a hybrid dog, crossbred between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. This hybrid is often said to have begun in Australia, along with the Labradoodle; U.S. fanciers challenge this assertion. Poodle hybrids have become increasingly popular and it is likely that the combination of Golden Retriever and Poodle has been duplicated by breeders in various countries.
The Goldendoodle, like the Labradoodle and many other Poodle cross breeds, was bred to produce a very low shedding assistance dog for challenged individuals who need such a dog, but who suffer from allergies to shedding hair or have other problems with excessive shedding. While the Goldendoodle is typically a low-shedding hybrid, it does shed to some degree. The Goldendoodle hybrid works well for many allergy sufferers; however, one can be allergic to an animal's saliva, or its dander. While some breeders claim that the Goldendoodle is a hypoallergenic canine, allergists believe that there is no such thing as a hypoallergenic animal. There have been no studies to date verifying whether any canine is completely hypoallergenic.
There are currently no size classifications for the Goldendoodle. It is difficult for a hybrid litter to "breed true"; that is, it is difficult to know exactly what size a Goldendoodle or Labradoodle will grow to as an adult, regardless of parental size. However, Goldendoodle sizes can vary if they are standard or mini. A standard Goldendoodle is the result of crossbreeding with a standard-sized Poodle. A standard Goldendoodle can get fairly large, usually between 60 and 80 pounds. A mini Goldendoodle is the result of crossbreeding with a miniature Poodle, although some mini Goldendoodles grow beyond their intended size. The mini Goldendoodles can grow to be about one foot tall or larger. The Goldendoodle can come in many different colors, depending on the poodle genes passed onto the pup. However, Goldendoodles can be tan, chocolate, red, black, silver, or a mix. A mix of colors can come from the same litter. General Information
The Goldendoodle is not a purebred; rather, it is a specific type of mixed-breed dog or "crossbreed". As such, it is not accepted for registration by mainstream registries of purebred dogs such as the American Kennel Club or United Kennel Club. A true club will only register dogs with a provable pedigree.
Some breeders allege that the Goldendoodle standard is a first generation (F1) pairing between purebred Poodle and Golden Retriever parents. Other maintain a looser definition and include under the classification what is known as an F1-backcross Goldendoodle, or F1-B. This dog results from a union of Goldendoodle plus Poodle or Goldendoodle plus Golden Retriever parents. Those marketing F1-B puppies resulting from an F1 paired with a Poodle typically maintain that such animals achieve the same hypoallergenic qualities as the purebred Poodle.
There are currently several breeders attempting to stabilize the Goldendoodle as an actual breed. This requires formation of a sufficiently large breeding stock as identified by previous breeding history, number of animals, geographic dispersion, etc. and accepted by the registration entity. After breed formation, only offspring from parings of animals within this locked set are considered to represent the breed. The risk of future genetic problems from such selective breeding is best answered by early establishment of a varied, original, gene pool. Even with these precautions by the registry, the subsequent, aggressive, breeding practices that are often pursued amongst the most popular breeds can produce problems that might only reveal themselves as the dogs mature. On the other hand, all modern breeds have been developed in exactly this way--by limiting the parental pool in order to isolate targeted characteristics of structure, color, and aptitude. To date, no major all-breed registry recognizes the Goldendoodle as an official breed. Personality
The Goldendoodle is a loving, loyal dog and has a keen sense of smell. They can be taught to enjoy swimming, as both the retriever and Poodle elements of their heritage normally enjoy water. Goldendoodles are intelligent, friendly, and great with kids, just like their Golden Retriever and Standard Poodle parents. They are easily trained, highly social, and by nature are easy with strangers and other dogs. They love to play, and retain the strong retrieving instincts of the Golden Retriever.
