Cozy's Mom
Jersey Doodles
Mon Oct 27, 2008 12:42

We got Cozy we will be 3 years in December from Jersey Doodles (near Atlantic City). She is an F1B. She is 37 lbs and has a wonderful temperament.

In retrospect, I should not have gotten a "B" because the coat grooming is more than I anticipated. I would not hesitate to get another dog from JerseyDoodles.

Also, don't forget many breeders do ship dogs.

      Hi, Just wanted to let you know that although Jersey Doodles has changed its name to Blackwood Golden Doodles, they are still the same breeder. John is still here. Kathy has retired. For more... more
    • Maisey the wonder dog is from Jersey Doodlescarol h., Tue Oct 28 09:55
      The best dog we have ever had is from Jersey Doodles. I agree the coat is difficult to say the least. I have found that a professional groom at least every 8 weeks is needed. Maisey is only 1 1/2... more

        The Stuff you can get in Dog catalogues will help with grooming and coming out. Keeping dog cleaner also. It's very good! Also the Furminator is a good tool to get loose hair out. Bev
    • My F1BMelisa, Mon Oct 27 19:36
      We have an F1B, her fur is amazing, not as high maintenance as everyone says. When her fur is long she needs to be brushed almost everyday, so for that reason I keep her no longer than the picture... more

    • F1 vs F1BVMan, Mon Oct 27 18:29
      Thanks for all of your help. Can anyone please give me additional information in terms of shedding and coat maintenance. It sounds like F1B's shed less than F1's but F1b's are more difficult to... more
      • It's a crap shoot with coatsGa. Dog, Wed Oct 29 09:44
        My F1 GD doesn't shed and his coat and build is more poodle like (with lazy curls like the guy at the top of this page but prone to mats and high maintaince). My friend's LD has a very soft, less... more

        My suggestion is go to site and groom your own dogs. It is not hard and pays for clipper and table in no time. Instructions on site. And many other places. Bev

          I went on the site and put in grooming a goldendoodle. It took me right to the Petsmart site. Bev, can you give specifics as to what type of clippers, brush, dryer, etc. Thanks.

      • I have a F1Anonymous, Tue Oct 28 07:40
        He does not shed at all. There is no guarantee on that though. It depends on who the dog takes after the poodle side or the Golden side. Coat maintenance with GD's is tough and expensive. I did not... more
      • Generally speaking yes.Jan, Mon Oct 27 18:45
        F1's (Retriever x Poodle) tend to have looser curls, and may shed a bit (or a lot). F1B's (F1 x Poodle) tend to have more poodle like hair, which grows continuously and does not shed. Often a better... more

      We lived in Waldwick New Jersey when we got out goldendoodle. We took a very worthwhile trip to West Virgina "DOODLESVILLE" to pick up our "Layla". I have heard great things about Jersey Doodles... more
    • We got ours from Jersey Doodles....Kathy & Dudley (NJ), Mon Oct 27 14:16
      He has a wonderful personality. We have never had a dog so smart. I would think twice before getting a Goldendoodle the grooming is a nightmare. You wind up having to keep them with a shorter coat... more

        Thank you for saying that Kathy, when we went to visit the breeders, that why we chose Jersey Shore Doodles's. Is this Kathleen from Jersey Doodles?

        • re: Jersey Shore DoodlesJan, Mon Oct 27 18:50
          In My Opinion, Jersey Shore Doodles chose that name so that they could profit from Kathy at Jersey Doodles' good reputation. Personally, I think it was, at best, a poor choice of names, at worst, a... more
          • There is notK, Mon Oct 27 20:01
            a doubt in my mind they used that name to capitalize off Kathy and John's reputation. I recommend to anyone interested in the GD.
        • No, we just got our Dudley (GD) fromKathy & Dudley (NJ), Mon Oct 27 18:26
          Jersey Doodles. My daughter got her Labradoodle from Nancy at Doodlesville, WV. Good luck with your decision and with your new addition whatever you decide!! We live in Mt. Olive, NJ

        We couldn't be happier with our dog. He is ridiculously sweet and for the most part mellow and loyal and bonded to our family and happiest when kids are lying on top of him. And the breeder is just... more

        Abby is an F1 (half poodle/half retriever) and her coat is a nightmare to keep groomed. She is fine as long as she is cut very short. I guess she has more of the poodle undercoat and then hair get... more
