Laurel, have you considered a Bernedoodle? I have a goldendoodle and a bernedoodle. The golden is 63 lbs but my bernedoodle is right around 100 lbs. Great personality.
You might check the GANA's website: http://goldendoodleassociation.com/dogtrack/guest/memberbreeders.aspx
The advantage there is that the breeders must meet at least minimum standards on health testing and age of parents.
Jack weighs 80 lbs, (he has been as high as 90) but I adopted him from a shelter at 14 months old. He was originally purchased from a pet store. :(
It does seem that most people are looking for medium size doodles these days. Even on the DRC website, the majority of people are looking to adopt smaller doodles, 20-40 lbs.
Thank you Karen. I'm not sure we're stuck on F1 so long as we can get an F1B with a nice blocky appearance. I really would appreciate it if some of you with jumbo doodles would private message and let me know where you got your dogs. From what we've seen, few people want big ones so a lot of breeders are putting out 50-70 lb dogs. We love the big guys. They have such presence. Our Roofus made such noise sitting down like a ton of bricks or shuffling across a hardwood floor (Do they all drag their feet?). We never knew how accustomed to his noises we were until we suddenly lost him.
Hi Laurel, I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Breeder recommendations and referrals are not allowed in public discussions here on DK. People will have to send you a friend request and message you. There are not many good breeders still breeding F1 standards, so be sure to read the guidelines on what to look for in a breeder and use them as a checklist for any breeder you consider. http://www.doodlekisses.com/notes/What_To_Look_for_In_a_Breeder
