Double Doodles are a rare new breed, now called North American Retrievers. They are a Golden Doodle, LabraDoodle X, created specifically for thier high intelligence, people- orientation and thier allergy friendly coat to service people with disabilities and or allergys.
By combining the people friendly character of the golden Retriever with the work ethic and energy of the Lab, along with the hypo allergenic coat of the poodle, they have come up with the perfect combination of intelligent, calm, eager to please, allergy friendly dog suitable for service work or a happy family pet!
We currently have 2 F2 Golden Doodle females and a Silver/black Labradoodle male.

What is the purpose of breeding any hybrid dog? Isn’t “hybrid or designer dog” just Fancy name for a Mutt, You may ask... In many cases this may be true, but when certain characteristics of a combination of breeds are carefully considered and bred for, consistantly, to achieve the desired qualities; this often results in a new breed being recognized for those specific traits. People have been hybridizing dogs ever since specific breeds of dogs were created. Each breed of canine was created by crossing two, and usually three or more breeds in order to create a dog to fulfill a specific purpose. Some breeds were created for herding, others for hunting, yet others for protection.
North American Retrievers (Double Doodles) are one of the few dogs created specifically to be used as service dogs for the disabled.
The North American Retriever, or Double Doodle, is a cross between a Labradoodle and a Goldendoodle. In order to understand the reasoning behind a Labradoodle X Goldendoodle cross, one must first know a bit about Labradoodles and Goldendoodles.
The history of the Labradoodle dates back to 1988, when the Australian Guide Dog Association intentionally crossed a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle at the request of a blind client needing an allergy-friendly guide dog. Some breeders are still producing this type of cross, known as an F1 Labradoodle. But the coat and allergy properties are erratic in this generation, so over the years some breeders have continued the hybridization process in order to more consistently produce a Labradoodle with a low-allergy, low-shed coat, and with a temperament suitable for service.
We are striving to do what many service organizations have been doing for years....combine the people-oriented, personable character of the Golden Retriever with the work ethic and energy of the Labrador Retriever.
Goldendoodles are a more recently produced hybrid, with the first litters produced, by all accounts, in the mid-1990's.The intent was to produce a non-shed dog, smaller than a Golden Retriever, and similar to a Cockapoo.Breeders have continued the hybridization process of Goldendoodles, and some breeders are producing 3rd and 4th generation Goldendoodles.
Although the qualities of Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are similar, there are some differences between them in temperament.
Labradoodles, retaining a personality quality common in Labradors, tend to have a somewhat higher drive. Goldendoodles, retaining a quality often found in Golden Retrievers, are often very gregarious. For years service organizations have intentionally crossed Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers in order to produce friendly, gregarious dogs that have enough drive for service work, so it is logical that Doodle Breeders would do the same. The same combination of traits that results in a tractable, friendly, trainable dog for service also results in a personality perfect for a family companion. So part of the reasoning for a Labradoodle X Goldendoodle cross has to do with producing a particular temperament. The other reason is to consistently produce low-shed, low-allergy coats. As it turns out, our litters of Double Doodles have been even more successful than we had hoped. We have found the percentage of pups with low-allergy, non-shedding coats in our Double Doodle litters to be MUCH higher than in either of the Labradoodle or Goldendoodle litters. In addition, their temperaments and conformation have been outstanding.
We are among the first breeders in this country to combine Goldendoodles and Labradoodles to create what we think is the best hybrid yet;
