Why don't you check out www.petfinder.com. Maybe you could find a golden retriever/poodle mix there to adopt .

I'm assuming he doesn't want to be tied to allergy shots since he talks negatively about them, but if he must, he must I guess.

How does one tell if a doodle puppy will shed? (I have no clue, obviously.) I've always had shedding dogs - huskies, shepherds, mutts, labs, etc.

I'm guessing what their coats look like as pups (I'm not too sure either). Probably the pups that have more of the curly poodle coat with be the ones that don't shed or shed little. While the pups with the longer retriever coats will be the ones that shed. That's a good question though.

Poodles do shed, just not as much and their hair more wool like therefore less allergic.

they do shed but the fur is caught in their coats, which with daily brushing removes the fur that is trapped. They do shed a little but not enough to kill a person with allergies.

His allergies aren't that bad, it's more a problem with being miserable than with fear of death.

You've gotten some good advice here....remember, this mix isn't a recognized breed and like all breeds, nothing is guaranteed .... it's a BYB's dream to make money. If you do find a litter, make sure you pay mutt prices. Good luck !! Read up and buy a good puppy book ! Or, better yet, go to a shelter and see which one your BF's allegries don't re-act to !!

Go with a purebred standard poodle. Poodles were originally bred as hunting retrievers, so despite their pampered appearance, they are actually great at outdoor activities. And that way, the non-shedding trait will be guaranteed.
Very well put. I agree completely.

And Yuckaduck, poodles shed within their coat. Hair doesn't fall off of them, it has to be brushed out.

It's true that nothing is guaranteed, just trying to play the odds. Looking at the $400 - $500 range if we can find a reputable dealer, about the same as a decent retriever or shepherd, anything more is a rip off. Also depending on what type of dog we get.

And yes, gotten lots of advice, thanks heaps, I think we'll have to frequent this board more often!
