What do you get when you mix two of the most people-friendly, intelligent dog breeds -- the English Golden Retriever and the Poodle? You get the English Goldendoodle, of course!
The English Goldendoodle is a hybrid dog breed resulting from breeding a Poodle with an English Golden Retriever. The English Goldendoodle is an excellent cross breed that is growing in popularity.
Our Smeraglia English "Teddy Bear" Goldendoodles have not become famous for lack of good reason. Their positive personality traits are numerous — They endear themselves to everyone they meet with their friendly, intelligent, and accepting nature. Their talents extend much further. Don't let their wonderful personality and great looks overshadow the breed's standing as a more-than-capable therapy and service dog.
They are usually highly affectionate, gentle, and patient. English Goldendoodles make excellent family companions, especially since they actively enjoy human company. They are loyal and, with proper reward based training, can be highly obedient. Harsh corrections could damage their confidence. They do have a playful side and can be mischievous if the mood hits.
The very first English "Teddy Bear" Goldendoodles were bred right here in Alabama!
We have been committed to the development and research of the English Golden since 1993 when we produced the first litter of English Goldendoodles. We are a Premium English Goldendoodle Breeder that specializes in the most outstanding Teddy Bear English Goldendoodles in the world. We have a reputation for producing beautiful, top quality English Goldendoodles that are smart, healthy, happy, well tempered, gentle, and extremely laid-back. We specialize in beautiful boxy "Teddy Bear" heads, which is why our puppies look so unique.
We Train Service, Therapy & Companion Dogs for All of Your Special Needs
Our goal at Smeraglia is to produce a specialty line of English Goldendoodles that work as service, assistant, therapy and companion dogs for special needs and disabled people (specifically for children). Goldendoodles' naturally loving personalities are perfect for just about any job involving human interaction.
We produce Goldendoodles with that unique "Teddy Bear" head that have low to non-shedding coats. We realize that many people these days are allergic to dogs, and our goal is to produce dogs for people with dog allergies as well as to train them for specially challenged people. Being low to non-shedding and allergy friendly is a great advantage for people that need to take their working dogs into public locations. While no dog is 100% hypo-allergenic, there are many breeds which the American Kennel Club (AKC) recommends for people with allergies. Our dogs are produced from breeds that produce low to non-shedding coats which produce less dander. People with allergies are allergic to the dander and saliva, not necessarily the hair. Being allergy friendly is one of the reasons we breed Goldendoodles & Schnoodles.
Our Goldendoodles are Allergy-Friendly and Low to Non-Shedding
Based on our owners' allergy trials, we have produced Goldendoodles that have proven to be Hypo-Allergenic Dogs / Non-Allergenic Dogs. These dogs are available upon request. We can schedule a test visit to determine if one of our puppies would be a candidate for your particular allergy issue. We can also do a T-shirt test to assist in determining if you can tolerate one of our puppies. Our parent dogs are from some of the best lines with many champions in their bloodlines. We do hip, heart, eye, and DNA testing on all of our parents. We offer a full two-year health guarantee on all of our puppies and a lifetime of support and rehome/rescue assistance if needed. Our puppies have current medical records and come with a State Certified Health Certificate. All puppies are well on their way to being crate trained when they go home and have all been well socialized with children. All puppies are child-tested and mother-approved.
Great Family Pets
We absolutely love our sweet little Teddy Bear English Goldendoodles. I am confident once you learn about them, you will love them just as much as we do. Goldendoodles are an intelligent and obedient family companion. They are everybody's friend, and they are devoted to their family. They are friendly towards children, other dogs, and pets and comfortable with strangers. They are social dogs, happiest when they are with people. Their intelligence, eagerness to please, and love of learning make them very easy to train. Due to the growing popularity of our Goldendoodles, we also schedule confidential pickups for our celebrity clients at a private location on our property.
We were guests on the NBC Today Show!

Overview of Goldendoodle Generations and Approximate Equations:
F1 Goldendoodle = Golden Retriever X Poodle (50% Poodle / 50% Golden Retriever) = Some will shed a little to none, others a bit more, but nothing like a Golden. Allergy Friendly.
F1B Goldendoodle = F1 Goldendoodle X Poodle (75% Poodle / 25% Golden Retriever) = Most F1B's Are Non-Shedders. Most Allergy Friendly.
F2 Goldendoodle = F1 Goldendoodle X F1 Goldendoodle (50% Golden / 50% Poodle) = Some will shed a little to none, others a bit more, but nothing like an English Golden Retriever.
F2B Goldendoodle = F1 Goldendoodle X F1B Goldendoodle (62.5% Poodle / 37.5% Golden Retriever) = The curliest ones usually do not shed and are similar to the F1B generation. Straighter ones will shed like an F1.
F3 Multi-Gen Goldendoodle = F3 Consists of these combinations: Any F2 X F2 = F3
F1B Goldendoodle X F1B Goldendoodle (75% Poodle / 25% Golden Retriever) = The curliest ones usually do not shed. They are very similar to our F1B generation. Straighter ones will shed like an F1.
F2B Goldendoodle X F2B Goldendoodle (62.5% Poodle / 37.5% Golden Retriever) = The most curly ones are LESS prone to shed. Straighter ones will shed like an F1.
F2B Goldendoodle X F2 Goldendoodle (45% Poodle / 55% Golden Retriever) = The curliest ones usually do not shed (Like An F1B). Straighter ones will shed like an F1.
