How Much Do Goldendoodles Cost?

A Goldendoodle, as the name implies, is a mix between a golden retriever and a poodle.  This combination and name was created in 1992 and have greatly risen in popularity since then.  Most Goldendoodles have the color of a golden retriever with the coat of a poodle.

When purchasing a Goldendoodle, you might see letters and numbers such as F1, F2, F1B and F2B.  An F1 stands for a “first generation” and means that the puppy is 50% golden retriever and 50% poodle. The F1B refers to as a “backcross Goldendoodle” and means that an F1 Goldendoodle has been bred with a golden retriever, making the puppy 75% poodle and 25% golden retriever.  F2 and F2B mean the same thing, but it means a second generation rather than first.  The second generation means that a Goldendoodle was bred with anothGoldendoodledle rather than a poodle with a golden retriever.

Like any other breed, the cost of a Goldendoodle can depend on the age, colors, size, geographical location, breeder and its bloodline.

  2. Amy (Ashburn,  Utah) paid $1100 and said:

    Wonderful puppy. Samson has a curly golden coat. He is 3 ½ months old and learns quickly. We got him at 8 weeks of age and was very close to being completely house broken by the time we took him home. He is very loving and great with our other two dogs (a Maltese and what we call a Lusky; part Labrador/part Husky) as well as our kids. Our breeder is also our veterinarian and lives nearby. When we leave town, he always stays with them as they are his family and have always treated him as such. I would definitely purchase this type of dog again.

    Was it worth it? Yes

    Our dog is the sweetest most beautiful little girl in the world and while she likes to dig we wouldn’t trade her for anything.
