Goldendoodles make great family pets. People love Goldendoodles for their charming personalities and hair that doesn’t shed. In fact, many people believe them to be the best of both golden retrievers and poodles combined into one breed. If you’re interested in buying a Goldendoodle puppy, you might not know what to expect when it comes to the costs associated with owning a Goldendoodle.
When most people look at buying a puppy, they look at the doodle breeders in their area to compare prices. But of course, the prices listed only reflect the amount you’ll have to pay the breeder for the puppy.
Some costs of Goldendoodle ownership may be included, like the puppy’s first vaccinations and some starter training, but the breeder can only provide so much.
Other costs to consider include breeder fees, puppy training courses, pet supplies, and food. These costs will shift over the life of your dog. At first, the training courses will be a significant cost, but once your dog is trained, you should be able to maintain that training. You may also want to factor in the cost of a dog walking service since Goldendoodles are active dogs that need exercise.
