In terms of health, Goldendoodles are extremely variable depending on their genetics. Both Golden Retriever and Standard Poodles are at risk for certain conditions like hip dysplasia and gastric dilation volvulus which could increase your Goldendoodle’s susceptibility to these conditions. Other problems your Goldendoodle may be at risk for developing could include Addison’s disease, epilepsy, allergies, skin problems, and hypothyroidism. When you start looking around for a Goldendoodle puppy you shouldn’t be surprised to find a wide range of different prices from various breeders. Some breeders who consider the Goldendoodle to be a “designer dog” will sell their puppies for much higher prices than a breeder who considers the Goldendoodle to be a mixed breed. You should always avoid buying mixed breed puppies from a breeder who makes specific claims in regard to the puppy’s size, appearance, or temperament because these things are nearly impossible to predict with a mixed breed. In order to determine a fair price range for the Goldendoodle you should consider the average price of Golden Retriever and Poodle puppies. If you consult AKC registered Golden Retriever breeders, a puppy will cost you anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 or more. Most pet quality Golden Retrievers sell for between $1,000 and $1,500 while show quality dogs sell for $2,000 to $3,000. It is possible to find Golden Retriever puppies in a lower price range, even as low as $500, but these are likely inexperienced backyard breeders who do not screen their breeding stock for congenital diseases. Purebred Poodles fetch a similar price to Golden Retrievers for show quality dogs, somewhere between $1,000 and $3,000.

And with respect to the specific diseases that many purebreds carry, isolating suspect genes and replacing them with other versions either from the same or different breeds could provide a clear benefit.
