You’re probably wondering about the Red Goldendoodle. Most people know about Goldendoodles, which conjures up images of adorable little shaggy-haired dogs with the golden color of their Golden Retriever parent. However, there are many other colors associated with the breed, and one of the most popular is the Red Goldendoodle. One look at this adorable dog, and it’s easy to see why – they look like a living stuffed animal. From the button nose to the teddy bear coat to those adorable eyes, this is a breed that looks almost as charming as he acts.
What makes the breed particularly popular is that it tends to include the best of both worlds in terms of the dog’s personality. Goldendoodles are loyal, loving, and playful. However, they are considered a designer breed because they are the result of two purebreds. Breeders rarely start with two Red Goldendoodles. If you are considering getting a cute Red Goldendoodle, here’s what you need to know to make the best decision for your unique situation.
A Red Goldendoodle has two parent breeds: a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. These are two of the most popular breeds for similar reasons. Golden Retrievers are known to be very affectionate and loving, making them ideal dogs for families with small children. Poodles are known for being fun-loving and loyal and are generally considered one of the best family pets. Both appear on most lists about the best breeds for first-time dog parents. One of the reasons that Poodles tend to be popular is because they can be hypoallergenic. Doodle mixes aren’t guaranteed to be hypoallergenic. Even if the dog takes more after the Poodle side, you or someone in your family might still have an allergic reaction to your Red Goldendoodle dander.
A Designer Breed
The Red Goldendoodle is an adorable dog, but it is essential to understand that the American Kennel Club does not recognize them because they are not pure breed dogs. It is less certain what kind of temperament and health your dog will have because it can have temperament or health problems (or rare dog diseases) from either or both breeds. As far as temperament, you won’t need to be too concerned since both breeds are fantastic dogs for children and families. However, be aware that all of the health risks for both breeds are potential issues for a red Goldendoodle. This is why it is so vital to ensure that the breeders practice good breeding habits.

How big a Red Goldendoodle gets depends on the size of the Poodle parent. There are four primary sizes for Poodles:
- Standard is the largest Poodle size and is usually between 18 and 24 inches from the floor to their shoulders.
- Medium Poodles are second and have an average height of 15 to 18 inches.
- Miniature Poodles are the second largest, with an average height of between 11 and 14 inches.
- Toy Poodles are the most miniature Poodle, with an average height of between 9.5 and 11 inches.
Most Doodle breeders have either a standard or Toy Poodle parent. However, there is always an element of unpredictability with the Goldendoodle’s size because Golden Retrievers don’t have much size variation. They are smaller than Standard Poodles but considerably larger than a Toy Poodle. While their size may vary, most Red Goldendoodles look the same regarding their other physical attributes. You’ll have either a large or a small-medium dog that will constantly bring to mind a stuffed animal.
Their personalities are far more predictable. Red Goldendoodles are pleasant and loving, helping them to integrate into the family quickly. If your dog takes more after the Poodle side, your dog might be a bit more intelligent, meaning you’ll need to make sure to keep your dog a little more mentally engaged to keep your puppy from getting bored. If your dog takes more after the golden side, you’ll have a more mellow dog that is happy to have you nearby, though you will love to play outside. Since both breeds love the water, it’s nearly inevitable you will have a Goldendoodle that will love water as well.
Both parent breeds also have plenty of energy since they come from working breeds, but how you help them work out that power will depend on which parent the puppy takes after. However, you will need to prepare to walk your Red Goldendoodle often or take them out to play as they are bound to have enough energy to need regular exercise. If you get a large one, you will have a fantastic jogging companion. If you get a smaller one, you’ll have a perfect dog for learning tricks and getting you out for a couple of high-energy daily walks.
Conclusion For The “Red Goldendoodle”
The coat color may change over time, so the color of a puppy will not necessarily be the same when the dog is an adult. Both parent breeds could have changing coats, so if you get a red one as a puppy, they might not be red when they are adults. The color tends to either lighten or darken, making it just another exciting aspect as your puppy ages. The color changes can even continue to change throughout your dog’s life – and this does include their hair going white, just like a human’s hair. As a gregarious breed with brains, nearly all Goldendoodles are easy to train.
They can also make great therapy dogs, even if only for someone in the family with an anxiety disorder, depression, or other mental or personal ailments. They can also be used to help with physical illnesses or disabilities. You can even have a Goldendoodle who goes into hospitals to help patients calm down and start relaxing. Since they come from working breeds, they make great traveling companions and tend to be eager for adventure. Since Goldendoodles are pleasant companions, they’ll be a big draw to the people you encounter too.
