Mini Golden Mountain Doodle Dog Breed Information
A Mini Golden Mountain Doodle is a cross between a Mini Goldendoodle and a Mini Bernedoodle. These little dogs tend to be affectionate, loyal, loving, and energetic. They love nothing more than being around their favorite humans.
Miniature Golden Mountain Doodles tend to have playful, cheerful, and friendly personalities. As long as they are trained and well-socialized, they tend to have a gentle, patient disposition and get along well with children, other dogs, and other pets. They even tend to be open and friendly with strangers.
This dog breed tends to be highly adaptable. Although they have a lot of energy, they tend to do well in apartments as well as larger homes as long as they get enough exercise and attention. They are sensitive to heat, but do well in most climates.
They also have a thick coat that can help them stay warm while out on walks during the winter. Because they bond so closely with their families and thrive on attention, Mini Golden Mountain Doodles do not like to be left alone for long periods of time.
Although mixed-breed dogs can sometimes be healthier than purebred dogs, it’s not a guarantee and good breeding practices make a big difference. Potential health concerns to be aware of in a Miniature Golden Mountain Doodle include hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia.
Reputable breeders will screen their dogs to avoid passing issues to puppies, so make sure you are asking about the health of both parents and about any tests or clearances that have been done.
Mini Golden Mountain Doodles tend to be highly intelligent and eager to please. Although they can get bored easily and have a lot of energy, they pick up on things quickly and tend to be a good fit for owners of all experience levels.
Even if you don’t necessarily need them, there are plenty of other benefits of puppy training classes. So, they tend to be a good idea, if only for the extra bonding and socialization.
A Miniature Golden Mountain Doodle often has a wavy or curly low or non-shedding coat. Colors can vary from the various Poodle colors to the classic Bernese ti-color and anything in between.
Although they have a low or non-shedding coat, their coat requires a lot of grooming. Daily brushing is recommended to remove tangles and prevent mats. Brushing or clipping are recommended every 4-6 weeks.
In addition to coat care, you will also need to take care of your Mini Golden Mountain Doodle’s nails, ears, and teeth. The dog groomer may be able to help you handle some of it, but you will still need to do some maintenance at home between visits.
Cutting nails twice a month keeps them from growing too long. If your dog’s nails grow more slowly, you may be able to get away with nail trims only once a month. Weekly ear checks with careful cleanings as needed can help prevent ear infections.
As a small dog breed, the Miniature Golden Mountain Doodle is more prone to developing dental disease. This only makes good dental care for dogs early and throughout your dog’s life even more important. Daily cleanings plus cleanings at the vet when needed are ideal.
Mini Golden Mountain Doodles are energetic little dogs. Although they will have bursts of higher energy at times, they tend to sit in a more moderate range. Daily walks plus some playtime and other activities are usually enough for this dog.
Fully-grown Mini Golden Mountain Doodles usually stand 18-22 inches tall and weigh 25-50 pounds.
Miniature Golden Mountain Doodles generally live for 13 years.
