Navigating the Path to Your Goldendoodle Puppy

If you have selected the Goldendoodle as the right fit for your family, you are now faced with another set of choices to pick the perfect best friend to add to your house:

  1. Different sizes: Ask your breeder to confirm the weight ranges they offer. Size down, if weight is a concern as I have met plenty of 65 lb mini goldendoodles. There is no standard, but these ranges are generally agreed upon.
  • Micro mini or petite goldendoodles 10-20 lbs
  • Mini goldendoodles 20-35
  • Medium Golden Doodles 35-50
  • Standard goldendoodles 55 and up
  1. Colors: Ranging from the traditional apricot all the way to the rarer merle coloring
  2. Coat texture: Golden doodles can have a popularized wavy fleece coat to a tighter curl like poodles.
  3. Generations: How much golden retriever and poodle in each of those furry babies?

An experienced breeder has raised hundreds of goldendoodles and can help families navigate all of these decisions and will help match your family’s needs to their pups. Chicago residents are in luck, as Wisconsin boasts several reputable goldendoodle breeders within a comfortable drive. Here are the five closest to Chicago in order of closest to farthest.

The Importance of Making the Right Choice

Remember, each puppy is truly unique, and distance is just one factor in your decision. Consider each breeder’s approach, the puppy’s individual traits, and how they fit into your lifestyle and family dynamics. These puppies will become your furry babies before long, and so going in fully informed is essential.


Health and Wellness: A Top Priority

All of these Wisconsin breeders are dedicated to raising healthy, happy goldendoodles! Ask each breeder about the genetic and OFA health testing performed on breeding pups.


  • What are the benefits of breeding dogs with a poodle? It helps to produce smart puppies that may be hypoallergenic and pass along their healthier genes to future generations.
  • How do goldendoodle sizes affect their needs? Size influences exercise and space requirements; smaller goldendoodles may be better suited for compact living spaces.
