Thank you for visiting Goldendoodles.com.  We hope you enjoyed it.  One of the great resources of the Dood community are its owners.  In the hundreds of personal pages on this site, they share their experiences and revel in their Doods - Please feel free to check out our Dood Database which lists owners and their dogs, including their breeder information.  Most of the entries in the database have email addresses to the owners, so avail yourself of the opportunity to get direct feedback from owners of dogs of breeders you are considering.  Please feel free to join our Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Online Community!   Are you a Dood lover, or do you want to learn more about them? Join our community! You can create your own page and share photos & videos. To contact the webmaster of Goldendoodles.com My name is Blue Sterling and I'm the webmaster to Goldendoodles.com   I'm not a breeder, I'm a Dood owner.  My academic background is in Health Science and I have a B.A. in Psychology.  In the Fall of 2000 my family was looking for the perfect dog and through an internet search discovered the Labradoodle.  At that time in southern Ontario, Labradoodles were nowhere to be found - but we had Golden Poos!  While I was waiting for my two Doods to come home from the breeder I built the Goldendoodle website (all 7 pages of it) and put together the Doodle Discussion Forum  to try to meet other Goldendoodle owners. As soon as people started finding the Goldendoodle Website, they said 'Gorgeous dog - where can I get one?'  and I realized that I had a responsibility to refer only quality breeders, because these were families like mine, looking for a healthy family dog.  I made it my goal to listen to owner feedback and to list only responsible breeders on the site. We were fortunate back then in that Dr. Kate Schoeffel often posted on our forums.  Kate is an honours geneticist, Vet and breeder of miniDoods in Australia.  She and others like her helped to shape what would become the `norm' of Dood breeders.    These Dood breeders shared similar philosophies of testing their breeding dogs and providing good health warranties.   To view exactly what site breeders agree upon - click here.  Some breeders screen their breeding dogs for more health tests than others, and almost every warranty is different.  Always ask questions. Since January of 2001,  I've tried to help people find responsible breeders and be responsible owners.  I advocate more testing and better warranties from breeders.  I answer correspondence, provide resource, post new information, update the database and individual Dood pages on the site.  If anyone ever has a problem working with their breeder through the warranty,  I try to help by acting as an advocate on their behalf - whether the breeder is listed on the site or not.  It's been my experience all around, that most problems between any breeder and owner are usually just about miscommunication, and once the process starts up again it all works out.  The Goldendoodle website now requires a small international team of people to manage it and help moderate the forums that Dood owners and breeders use.  We have a great resource section which is always being added to - and I'm especially proud of Jan's accomplishment  - Hip Dysplasia - A Mini - Tutorial for the Puppy Buyer  -   http://goldendoodles.com/health_hereditary/hd_mini_tutorial.htm  One of our Dood community's glowing achievements is highlighted in the Working Doods section.  A  few years after I started the website, I sent out letters to every working dog group that I could find asking if they had ever used a Labradoodle or Goldendoodle.  One or two said that they did, but also some of them were interested in working with a Dood and asked if I could find breeders to donate pups to them.  What has followed has been a wonderful testament to the qualities of these hybrids and also to the generosity of our breeders. One of the tools of the Dood community is its forums.  The Doodle Discussion Forum was the first forum on the net for Goldendoodle and Labradoodle owners and it was started in January of 2001.  The first breeders forum - the Doodle Breeders' Discussion Forum - was created about a year later as a place for all Dood breeders to share information and trade dogs. They are remarkable dogs!  Let us all revel in our Doods! Warm regards,
