Make sure you ask why the breeders got into this, especially since it's a "new" breed and EXACTLY why they bred those two dogs together. "Well, one's a pretty poodle and the other is my long-time best friend's Golden" does not count as a good or acceptable answer. Did they do any health checking before the breeding? How much research did they put into the dog's bloodlines? What type of care have they given the bitch since being bred? Do they have a health guarantee, if so, for how long and will they unquestioningly take back any dog at any time for any reason?

You won't find a good breeder selling retrievers or shepherds so cheap. It's more like $800 usually, and doodles seem to be always more expensive.

In any case, here is a link about what makes a good breeder :

PLEASE don't pay that much for a mutt !!! The last I looked into getting a female to continue my line, The pups were $1000....I wanted the line, but would have to have a co-owner and show. If I had gotten a pet quality pup but with all checks etc..I would have had to have her spade.....That's when I gave it up.

Do not buy from a backyard breeder, unless health and temperment mean nothing to you. Please you have gotten great advice here heed it!

I'm not going to buy from a backyard breeder, gosh. The advice has been good, we'll take it. In fact, the funny thing is that when I sent my BF to this thread, he emailed me "um...I'd like a standard poodle, I thought you didn't like them." Ironic, so maybe we'll get a standard now! Miscommunication of a funny sort. Plus your advice is helping push that way.....

Standard Poodles are nice.If you dont like the typical Poodle clip you can get it done in a Puppy Cut instead lol.

I remember making fun of that guy everytime I heard about it on the radio. Not knowing that about the hair I allways thought it was unfair they didnt let him and his dogs compete.

Hey good deal! And in my own personal opinion, I like the puppy cut much better in general anyway. A little pouf on the top of the head kind of keep the 'poodle' look, but it's a lot easier to keep care of.
