If you’re thinking about getting a dog, the Black Goldendoodle might be the perfect choice for you.

The black Goldendoodle is a rare breed of dog and it’s difficult to find. They can have any color including brown or cream but they’re especially sought after because of their dark coat which gives them an alluring shine like no other.

What is the origin of the Black Goldendoodle?

Goldendoodles are a cross between the gorgeous Golden Retriever and Poodle. They can come in any color, but most have a brown or red color.

Their genetic origins match their Golden Retriever coats as well as Poodle coats which make their hair either long or curly on top of it all. If you want your puppy (or adult) dog to be black then you need to do some research ahead of time because those rare blacks don’t tend to appear naturally within Goldendoodles lines.

They’re created through an extra gene inheritance option that only applies when both parents carry this trait from different ancestors instead.

The almost ghost-like black-and-white patterning of this breed is quite captivating. It’s common to see them all dark in color or with just enough highlighted patches on their bodies for them to stand out against more solid hues like gray or brown.

The adorable face makes up for any lack of markings. It is a well-known fact that Black Goldendoodles are usually all black with little or no white markings. However, it’s rare for these dogs to be spotted in patterns such as tricolor (black and tan).

When you’re looking for your new puppy, be sure to check if the parents have had any black Goldendoodle puppies. If so and they carry this gene in their breeding history then it will increase your chances of getting a fabulous fur baby.

Goldendoodle genetics can be a surprise, even for those who think they know what to expect from their pup’s parents. A Goldendoodle could have any color or combination of colors in its coat including black.

Goldendoodle breeders are constantly surprised by the different colors and patterns that can come from a single litter. Two parents could even produce an entire pack of black Goldendoodles, but there can also be brown pups or black-and-white pups in the same litter.

Is Black Goldendoodles Rare?

There is an increased chance to get a black Goldendoodle if they are bred in the second or third generation. If a black Goldendoodle parent is crossed with a black Poodle, the offspring will nearly always be all black.

Crossing a Doodle with a Poodle is called producing an “f1b generation”. This type of breeding will increase certain desired traits.

There are many different breeds of dogs, and each one has its unique personality traits. If you want to know what type your pup could be based on their coloration then look no further than this list.

For example, if I bred my black  F1 Goldendoodle female with another very dark-colored let’s say a Poodle they might end up producing an “f1b generation” which would result in more jet-black pups than ever before, although not always as these dogs can have wide varieties or a combination of different colors.

The f1b Goldendoodles, which is backcrossed to a purebred Poodle, have more than 75% of Poodle’s genes in them. This is because the first generation of offspring (F1 Goldendoodle puppies) will have 50% of the genes from both parents.

Therefore further backcrosses to purebred black colored Poodle probably will produce more black Goldendoodle puppies. 

Grooming of Black Golden Doodle

A Poodle and Golden Retriever mix coat will grow very long and tends to form mats and dreadlocks quickly. You have two basic options for dealing with your pup’s coat.

You can either brush your puppy’s hair often, which may cause tangles in some cases, or use a grooming kit made especially for dogs with rough coats (these usually come at an affordable price).

You need to trim away dead skin cells around their paws/ears if they walk on them while walking outside so that it doesn’t irritate them further down the road.

Any black Goldendoodle can grow long and matty hair quickly. You could either bear it or get rid of all the mats by cutting them off, you have no other option than this.

Clip your Black Goldendoodle

Especially if you live in a hot climate, spend a lot of time outdoors, or don’t have the time to brush your dog daily, keeping your dog in a short haircut will benefit you all. You can either buy some clippers and groom your dog at home or take him to a local groomer.

Keeping your dog’s hair short and sweet will help you and him stay cool in the summer, and save time during busy days with work or other schedules. 

Grooming your dog is an essential part of caring for him. This includes bathing, brushing, and cutting their nails if they grow too long or are infested with dirt particles.

Grooming services can be expensive but there are ways around this problem. You can buy clippers at the store to cut grooming costs to some extent rather than paying the groomer who might charge you extra just because of his high-end dog salon. You may also have to pay extra if you live in a posh area. 

Brush & wash your Black Goldendoodle

If you like the shaggy, adorable look of your dog’s locks, you can keep them longer as well. Of course, It goes without saying that the grooming of your dog is tied to daily brushing and monthly baths.

The longer your puppy’s hair is, the more time you have to allow for maintaining it. Do not let it mat otherwise your dog will suffer from painful skin sores.

Giving your pup the perfect hairstyle can take some time and effort, but it will be worth all of that when you see him in his new style. A lot goes into making sure that the fur of the pup stays healthy.

Brushing regularly with conditioner will soften the fur, and give them baths regularly as well. Don’t worry, there are many dog care stuff available on the market from drying agents to very modern dog clippers. These things make your him stay nice and smooth and make locks well-kept without any tangles.

Just like humans, dogs can suffer from matting their hair. If this is something that worries you, consider brushing them every day. And take them for a bath if needed so they don’t have painful sores on their skin.
