Summer is usually a quieter time for our site, but this year we are seeing an unusually high amount of traffic.   We had over 5 million hits to our site again last month, by over 50 thousand unique viewers.  It's terrific to note that over 60% have bookmarked the site for future reference.


OWNER FEEDBACK

On the home page of our site we discuss the basic coat types of Goldendoodles as retriever-like, or poodle-like, but usually something inbetween.  It's important to get across the message that not all Doods will have that inbetween coat; some can have very flat coats, and others can be very poodly.
