Can A Goldendoodle Be Black & White?

Those adorable tuxedo-clad penguins have new competition. The Black and White Goldendoodle might be cuter. These black and white pooches resemble teddy bears and are the perfect huggable and lovable family dogs.

A Caboodle Of Goldendoodles

So many Goldendoodle colors to choose from. Which color Doodle is for you? Surely gold? Don’t let the name fool you. People tend to take the name quite literally, but it actually refers to the parents of the hybrid instead of its coat color. A Golden Retriever and Poodle parent fall in love and give birth to the most sociable and charming Goldendoodle puppies.

Brown Goldendoodles, Apricot Goldendoodles, Red Goldendoodles, Cream Goldendoodles, Tan Goldendoodles, Sable Goldendoodles and Black Goldendoodles. Already an overwhelming amount of choices but when the waiter adds the choice of a half-and-half pizza, you just can’t resist saying yes.

The Half And Half

This mix-and-match crossbreed is known as the Parti Goldendoodle with a pattern that contains two different coat colors with the requirement that one of those colors be white. The secondary color can range from the more common apricot and tan patches to the rarer black markings.

The recessive coat color genes are responsible for this patchlike phenomenon. Breeding Goldendoodles is unpredictable and is more often a result of luck than science, but working with a knowledgeable breeder will increase the likelihood of your desired coat pattern.

Whereas a regular Goldendoodle is a mix between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, a Parti Goldendoodle is a hybrid between a Golden Retriever and Parti Poodle.

Parti Goldendoodles include Phantom Goldendoodles with the secondary color found on their eyebrows, nose and chest, Merle Goldendoodles with a “cookies and cream” coat pattern, Brindle Goldendoodles with their striped tiger coats, and finally, Black and White Goldendoodles fitted in their tuxedo coat markings.

The Black And White Goldendoodle

Yes, it does exist. The Black and White Goldendoodle is no bigfoot. One Golden Retriever and one Black and White Parti Poodle result in extremely rare multicolored Goldendoodles. The black patches against the white background create the impression of a smart and sophisticated doggo in a fitted suit. This Tuxedo Goldendoodle has a white chest, a white muzzle, white hind legs, and a splash of white on the top of its head.

Breeders and customers often get excited about the idea of having a say in the pattern and appearance of the pooch but the rarity of Black and White Goldendoodles can make it an expensive purchase…

How Much Does a Black & White Goldendoodle Cost?

Breeders are constantly reading the market and Black and White Goldendoodles are in high demand. Costs are determined by supply, demand, lineage, rarity, and breeder reputation. Every additional feature will be matched with an increase in price. Bigger, smaller, symmetrical coats and color will all influence the final quote.

These designer dogs are difficult to reproduce and there is no guarantee that an attempt to breed a specific coat pattern will be successful or produce a profitable number of puppies. A breeder aiming for a Black and White Goldendoodle may be surprised with a fully Black Goldendoodle litter and vice versa.

You can expect to pay anything between $2000 and $5000 for your designer Doodle, but remember to prioritize personal connection and the health of your pup over its appearance.

Pretty Inside And Out?

The Black and White Goldendoodle isn’t only one of the most loved and sought-after dogs because of their gorgeous hypoallergenic coats and range of color coat options. These pups are the perfect family-friendly, intelligent, playful blend between the natures of Golden Retrievers and Poodles.

Their fun and gentle temperament ensures that you’ll find a best friend in your pet. Just don’t expect them to qualify as guard dogs; their friendly nature often extends to strangers, whether they have good intentions or not.


Do Black and White Goldendoodles shed?

Many people are under the misconception that Goldendoodles don’t shed because of their Poodle genetics. All dogs shed and Black and White Doodles aren’t the exception. This myth stems from the fact that Doodles have curly Poodle-like hair so that when they do shed, the hair tends to get stuck in their coats and fails to fall out naturally.

What is the lifespan of a Parti Goldendoodle?

The average Parti Goldendoodle can live anywhere from ten to fifteen years. A healthy lifestyle and caring family can extend that number even further. Although generally healthy, Parti Goldendoodles run the risk of Hip Dysplasia, Patellar Luxation, Von Willebrand’s Disease and Cataracts. Regular vet checkups and familiarizing yourself with the first signs of these health issues can prevent any potential suffering for your pup.

How do you groom your Goldendoodle?

Brushing their hair

Regular brushing will remove loose hairs and prevent uncomfortable matting.

Trimming their hair

Regular coat trimming will spare your dog unnecessary discomfort. Hair tends to grow rapidly in the ears and around the eyes. Investing in a pair of dog hair clippers will save you expensive trips to the groomer.

Trimming their nails

Nail care is essential for your dog’s comfort and health. Their nails should be kept short and trimmed as soon as they touch the floor. Cutting their nails at a 45 degree angle will ensure that you don’t accidentally sever any blood vessels. If trimming your dog’s nails makes you nervous take your pooch to the groomer instead of letting their nails grow wild.

Final Thoughts

When introducing a pooch into your household you might be inclined to get excited about the options of coat colors, but remember that the doggo’s character and the relationship between yourself, your family and your doodle will be of a lot more value in the long run.

If you’re convinced that a Black and White Goldendoodle is the companion you’ve always wanted, you might need to do a bit of saving up. But don’t you fret, you can be sure to get your money’s worth in love and affection.
