  • Sizes of Goldendoodles
    Goldendoodle puppies for Sale GoldenDoodles
    When discussing sizes of Goldendoodles, it seems everyone has a different opinion.  Here are the sizes that we usually breed: Petite ~ 20 lbs or  less Miniature ~ 20-25 lbs Medium ~ 25-45 lbs Standards ~ 45 lbs or over We generally do not try to breed for puppies that will mature over 45 lbs.  It seems that is too large for most people especially families with small children. Things to consider when deciding on what size might be right for you and your family are: Toddlers/Pre-K children are often knocked down or intimidated by large dogs. Do you need to consider your ability to lift the dog ?  Sometimes getting a large dog into the car, bathtub or up/down steps can be a struggle if the dog is too heavy for your size or age Where will my dog’s crate be located? The larger the puppy, the larger the crate will need to be.  Think about what room in your house you will be locating your puppy Cost of grooming and vet care.  The larger the dog, the higher the price is to get them […]
  • 10 FAQs and Goldendoodles
    Goldendoodle puppies for Sale GoldenDoodles
    Goldendoodle Questions: (1)   Do I need an appointment to visit the puppies ?  Yes. Please contact us for an appointment. We are not always home so we like to know you are coming. (2)   What are the prices of your puppies? There is a link on our website that explains our pricing and also what puppies are available. (3)   Are there any important things I should know before bringing my puppy home ? On our website, there is a link called “Bringing Your Puppy Home”. It contains the name of the food our puppies are eating as well as other tidbits we feel new puppy owners may find helpful (4)   What are the generations I hear about F1b, F2b and such? A helpful blog is on our website that explains the different generations. It can be confusing but it’s really basic math. We never really know for certain, what % of Poodle vs Golden Retriever  a puppy may inherit (5)  How long until I can bring my puppy home ? It is basically 4 months from conception until a puppy is ready […]
  • Over Vaccination
    Goldendoodle puppies for Sale GoldenDoodles
    Many years ago, I read an interesting article written by a vet from NCSU that spoke at the World Organization for Animal Health about over vaccination in animals.  It prompted me to continue searching for other information about autoimmune reactions to overvaccinations.   We had two events where puppies we had bred were over vaccinated and then developed an autoimmune disease.  This led us to include a clause in our Purchase Agreement that specifies certain vaccines be spaced apart and  for multiple vaccinations not to be given at a single vet appointment. Occasionally, we will hear from an owner that their vet did not recognize the vaccine(s) that were given by us.  It is understandable that a vet doesn’t want your puppy to have received a vaccine that was purchased at the local farm supply store that someone removed from the refrigerator, decided they were not going to buy it and laid it on a shelf.  It lays there a couple hours when an employee spots it and puts it back in […]
  • Trupanion’s New Enrollment Window
    Goldendoodle puppies for Sale GoldenDoodles
    We have offered 30 days of free pet insurance through Trupanion for many years.  Hummingbird Hill Farm was one of the first breeders to partner with Trupanion.  Owners have told us how thankful they are that they maintained the coverage on their GD.  (Doodles are known for eating ANYTHING….squeakers, socks, underwear, etc !)  Trupanion is now allowing owners to sign up as early as the day when they select their puppy.  You can now enroll around the puppy’s age of 6 weeks.  This will be one less thing to do on the take home day. The following announcement was sent out by Trupanion: The activation window has been extended.  Buyers can now activate the Go Home Day Offer from match date until 24 hours after go-home! Buyers will have more time to activate their offer.  “Match date” means the buyer has paid a deposit AND selected a specific puppy. To take advantage of the extended activation window, buyers must call to activate their offer.  Call 1-855-266-2156. Need a […]
  • Male vs. Female
    Goldendoodle puppies for Sale GoldenDoodles
    We are often asked which is better, male or female.  We posed that question to our vet and this was her response:  In some of the more aggressive breeds, male vs female is a real consideration.  In Goldendoodles, it is generally not a real concern. It seems to be personal  preference.  Many people think females are easier to house train.  We have even heard people say that males will not completely empty their bladder and then come in the house and mark.  Leaving a dog in tack can definitely cause marking.  Neutering before the testosterone starts kicking in seems to  stop the marking syndrome.  From experience, we will never have an unneutered male in our house again. Currently, we have in our home a neutered male Standard Poodle, and two females.  One female is a moyen Poodle and the other a Goldendoodle.  All three are faithful to their people and totally in love with us.    Personality seems to be the same in females and males. There is a lot of opinions on the internet but it […]

    This is my first blog ever but I think it will be a great place to catch everyone up on what is happening with our Goldendoodles here at Hummingbird Hill Farm. Our mother Goldendoodle dogs have all decide to cycle at once so we have a lot of upcoming Goldendoodle puppies, Miniature Poodle puppies and Standard Poodle puppies due between now and April. The Goldendoodle pups that are due range in size from miniature to standard. The Miniature Poodle pups will be borderline Toys and we are hoping to keep some MIniature Poodles (females) from crosses to JP as he is going on 13 years old ! The Standard Poodle pups will be moyen insize (Registered as Standard Poodles but only weighing 35-45 lbs avg). Please take a look at our Available and Upcoming Puppies page. There you will find what puppies we have available and what upcoming litters that we are expecting. Our website is updated multiple times per week and the date of the editing is located at the bottom of each page. Thanks for reading […]
  • Times are certainly changing !!
    Goldendoodle puppies for Sale GoldenDoodles
    Wow, even things have changed on the farm with social distancing and all the other related Covid-19 changes to everyone’s lives. (The Goldendoodles, Miniature Poodles and Standard Poodles are all still happy and enjoying the warmer weather. Social distancing is not in their vocabulary !) We have tried to limit visitors as much as possible. We no longer shake your hand when you come or hug you when you pick up your puppy. Weather permitting, we are even doing pick ups outside instead of instead of in our home. I have been off for going on 3 weeks now and it has allowed me to keep our listing of Goldendoodle puppies and Standard Poodle puppies (Moyen) up to date. Our Upcoming Puppies page is also up to date with two litters of Miniature Poodle puppies due later this month. You actually might notice a lot of upcoming litters of Goldendoodle pups and Miniature Poodle pups arriving in the near future. This is because of the “dormitory effect”. When female dogs are housed […]
  • To crate train or not to crate train ?
    Goldendoodle puppies for Sale GoldenDoodles
    This subject is brought up at almost every puppy pick up ! We are advocates of crate training. A crate gives your dog a place of their very own. Sometimes they want a break from “their people” and a crate/cage gives them this safe place. Around 10:00 PM every night, my Miniature Poodle will hop off my lap and go to bed in his crate ! If I say “Kennel up”, my dogs run to their crates and wait for the treat they know is coming. (David says not to give them a treat every time they go in their crates as they will expect it. I say give them a treat. I am not sure why it matters if they expect it or not !?!) If you choose not to crate train, you will need to have a means to confine the puppy to a very small area particularly after they eat. If they have free rein of the house, they will sneak off and potty and you will struggle to get them house trained. There are many articles on the internet that will guide you in how to house train. Find one that works for you […]
