Our English Goldendoodles range between Small, Medium and Standards. Note: the size of the doodle will be influenced by the parent lineage. You can expect that your puppy's size will be an average of the parents size. Also note the size of the doodle is determined by height not by weight.

Our English Goldendoodle “Teddy Bear” Look
Body: The English Goldendoodle should be athletic, graceful, square with medium to large boning (depending on the size). The build should be square.
Height (to wither) as to length (from sternum to point of buttock) should appear square. Shoulders should have good angulation with firm elbows held close to the rib cage. Upright shoulders is a fault. Hindquarters should be of medium angulation with short strong hocks. Top line should remain level with strong loin and level croup. They are a galloping dog, therefore flanks should rise up from a brisket set just below the elbows but should not be excessively deep. Ribs should be well sprung but not barreled. Overall they should appear square, balanced, athletic with good muscling.
Movement: When trotting they should be purposeful, strong and elastic, with good reach and drive, giving the appearance of “going somewhere”. When happy, relaxed or at play, they will prance and skim the ground lightly. Excessive tightness in the hips will produce a stilted action and is considered a fault.
Tail: Set relatively high and preferred to be carried in a saber, can be carried below the top line or “gaily” above with a slight curl. Curled possum type tails are undesirable.
Ears: Set moderately flat against the head. Base should be level with the eye, or close to it. Leather should be of medium thickness and when gently drawn forward should reach the top canine tooth. Ear leather reaching beyond the tip of the nose is considered a fault. Ear canals should be free of excessive hair and not thick or bulbous. When inquisitive and alert, the ear set should rise to the top of the head. Thick/heavy ear leather is a fault.
Eyes: “Slightly” round, large and expressive. Always offering eye to eye contact when engaged in activity with a human. Protruding or sunken eyes are a fault. Watery or tearful eyes are a fault.
Eye Color: Eye color should complement and blend with the face color. Black, Red, White, Cream and apricot usually have brown/black eyes. Most all shades of Champagne and Chocolate will have hazel eyes.
Nose: Large, square and fleshy. Pigment should be either black or brown (for Parti colors it may be freckled). Pigment should be strong. Black pigment dogs usually have dark/brown eyes. Dogs with brown pigment can have dark hazel or brown eyes.
Neck: The firm, well muscled neck should be moderately long, slightly arched and flow well into the well angled shoulders with no appearance of abruptness. The neck should not be coarse nor stumpy and should lend an air of elegance to the dog. A short thick neck is a fault.
