 More from Food: Wine column archiveBeing a poodle hybrid, the goldendoodle may get poodle hairstyles. The continental and the English saddle cuts are show cuts for poodles and involve trimming the hair that covers the face, throat, feet and the base of the tail, leaving the rest of the hair long. Groomers leave a puff of hair at the end of the tail and the base of each foot. The two cuts are similar, but differ in only one aspect: The continental cut involves shaving the hindquarters completely, while the English saddle clip involves only trimming the hair short in this area. The sporting clip poodles wear in shows may also be applied to goldendoodles. This clip is similar to the puppy cut, but the hair is left to full length on the legs. The predictability of a breed comes from selection for traits that are desirable and away from traits that are undesirable. When a breed standard or type is set, the animals within that breed have less heterozygosity than do animals in a random population. The Goldendoodle is nothing more than an expensive mongrel. Because the genetic makeup is diverse from the Poodle genes and the Golden Retriever genes, the resultant first generation F1 offspring is a complete genetic gamble. The dog may be any size, color, coat texture and temperament.

If the Goldendoodle is bred from a Golden Retriever and a Miniature Poodle, however, it is likely to be a little smaller – around 30 to 45 pounds.
