There are different colors and styles of Goldendoodles that you can look through on sites like this. By scrolling through these sites, you’ll get a clearer picture of what you want your designer dog to look like.
Look through pictures on Pinterest. It’s a diverse site, and it will allow you to set up a board really easily that you can pin pictures of pups that you especially like to.
Research Goldendoodle Puppy Breeders
Pinterest and other image sites are great places to begin researching the style of puppy you want, but it’s also important to research the right breeder for you. Different breeders have different styles of dog breeding and some will be able to serve your needs better than others.
There are a lot of breeders out there who already have puppies that you can choose from. For example, the adorable Goldendoodle here is a purebred puppy that is already waiting to be adopted!
Most breeders also have the option to allow you to customize your furry friend. If, say, you want an ink-black Goldendoodle, these breeders can put parent dogs together that will make that happen. All you have to do is say the word!
Learn About Dog Breeding
Before you go to a dog breeder, you also probably should understand how dog breeding works. There are a lot of misconceptions about breeding out there, such as people believing it’s immoral. But this isn’t the case at all!
Breeding dogs is a 100% ethical process in which two dogs are assessed to make sure that they not only have good genes that will interact well together, but also the make sure that they have personalities that mesh. Contrary to popular belief, breeding dogs are treated very well and will not be forced to breed if they are aggressive or reluctant.
Dogs will be examined for their health and their ages will be checked before they are paired up. The breeder will then wait for them to go into heat before deciding what to do next. One option is obviously the natural breeding process, but artificial insemination can be an ethical and painless alternative.
In the end when the pups are delivered, they are well-fed and taken care of. Then they are sent off to their loving forever homes!
That being said, it’s still important to make sure you’re finding a responsible breeder. Dog breeding is inherently an ethical, good process, but there are still a lot of rotten eggs in the industry. Establish a rapport with the breeder whose services you’re using and observe the premises.
It’s also important to look at the way that the animals are interacting with the breeder. Do they seem happy and well-treated? If the answer is yes, then you’re good to go. If not, it might be a good idea to find a different breeder!

Look Into Finances
One thing that you need to be mindful of when selecting a breeder is your finances. How much will it cost to get the designer dog that you want? Of course, you’re probably ready to make this investment, but it’s worthwhile to check out prices to see exactly how much you’re going to need to put out there.
The best breeders offer financing options and budgeting when helping you create the dog you’ve always dreamed of. These options allow the new dog owner to set up a payment plan with the breeder. This helps you to not have to fork over an unreasonable amount of money all at once.
It’s really simple to qualify for community finance budgeting for dog breeding, too. All you really have to do is have a stable job and an open checking account with a reasonable amount of money in it, which you should have if you want a happy dog with a happy life, anyway!
The Best Bark For Your Buck
Getting a purebred Goldendoodle is a long and expensive process, sure, but you’ll be fine if you do your research on dogs and finances and understand how breeding works. Plus, it’s more than worth it when you meet your perfect new fur baby for the first time.
