(North American Retriever) (Golden Labradoodle)
Goldendoodle / Labradoodle or Golden Retriever / Labrador Retriever / Poodle Hybrid Dogs
The Double Doodle is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Goldendoodle and the Labradoodle or various combinations of the Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever and the Poodle. The Goldendoodle is a Golden Retriever crossed with a Poodle and the Labradoodle is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses. As a result, even when crossed as a Goldendoodle and Labradoodle, the Double Doodle is not always 1/4 Golden Retriever, 1/4 Labrador Retriever and 1/2 Poodle. It all depends on what generation dogs the parents were. They can be various combinations of Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever and Poodle. The mix has been called various names, such as Double Doodle, North American Retriever and Golden Labradoodle. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in any breed.
Charlie the Double Doodle at 1 1/2 years old—"Charlie is a true Double Doodle. His mother was a Labradoodle and his father a Goldendoodle -- each multi-generation. He has an incredible personality and is full of love, intelligence, and fun. He loves other animals and people. Charlie can play with you at 100 miles per hour or lounge all day on the couch. Zero shedding. He weighs 35 pounds, though they come in various sizes. Great family dog!!"

Banshee the Double Doodle at 7 and a half months old—"Her mom is a chocolate Labradoodle and her dad is a blonde Goldendoodle. All of the puppies turned out pitch black. Her hair is very wooly. I decided to get her groomed and it was like they gave me back a different dog!"
"This is Gwendolyn. She is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Miniature Goldendoodle, called a Golden Labradoodle. Her sire is a silver Labrador Retriever and her dam is a Golden Miniature Goldendoodle. She is so smart and is so easy to train. Gwen graduated top of her obedience class and is the most well-behaved dog I've ever known! I take her for a mile-long walk every day. She loves her exercise!"
