Are Black Goldendoodles Rare?

Black Goldendoodles are really rare dogs because the gene for a black coat is found only in the Poodle parent. They want the gene to be available to their poodle parents before any black retrievers are born. Genetics should be 75% Poodle and 25% Golden Retriever.

What is a Goldendoodle?

Before we talk about the fur colour of this breed, we need to be clear about what a Goldendoodle is. Hair colour has nothing to do with whether the dog is a golden retriever or not. The Goldendoodle is simply a Poodle that is a combination of Golden Retriever and genetics.


As we have just said, Goldendoodle is a Golden Retriever mixed with a Poodle, usually this is to make a dog that takes the high energy, playful nature and curly nature of its retriever parent Low Shedding, Hypoallergenic Hair.

The fact that these dogs have more hair than hair means they produce less hair and other allergies. These coats make it better for allergy sufferers or those who want a clean dog with nice fur. These coats are still very popular, although they require more maintenance, such as regularly brushing the mats. Goldendoodles come in many sizes from small to large and males are usually larger than females. If one parent is a purebred Golden Retriever and the other is a purebred Poodle, half of the dog’s genes are from the Poodle and half from the Golden Retriever.

As for the second or third generation of goldendoodles, the difference in genes can be obtained. Two 50/50 Goldendoodle parents make another 50/50 Goldendoodle. If a Poodle and a Golden Retriever are born, the pup will be 75/25 on the Poodle side and vice versa if the parent is a Golden Retriever and not a Poodle. Due to these different breeds Goldendoodles can be of different colours. When the parents’ genes are combined and repeated over many generations, the puppy’s fur colour can come in many different colours. There are black, white, red, blue, brown, iridescent and gold colours, all from different genetics.


Regardless of fur size, all Goldendoodles have the same temperament and behaviour as other Goldendoodles. Goldendoodles are generally friendly dogs and make great family dogs because they love people, some even love dogs!

Goldendoodles are active and love to run around the garden. They also love to play with people and are very intelligent dogs.

They quickly learn new skills and quickly learn the right behaviour. Goldendoodles rarely become overweight or have a lot of health problems due to their athletic and active nature.

Black Doodle Genetics

Gold plated golds are more plentiful than other plated colours, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to make the skins any different. Golden Retrievers with black fur are very rare, but breeders have found that black fur is in their genes. When raising a Black Goldendoodle, second or third generation puppies will usually get black plumage.

First, the Poodle parent must have a black coat. In this way, the recessive black gene will definitely go to the offspring. For the second generation, a Goldendoodle puppy should be mixed with another black poodle. This makes the Poodle 75% genetic compared to 25% of the Golden Retriever. When you actually reach this ratio in a pup Goldendoodles, you will have a few black Goldendoodle puppies or at least some black puppies. Breeding with a different black Goldendoodle should reveal the black genes if there are no black offspring and the third generation will have at least one black Goldendoodle puppy, if not more. While the black fur of the Goldendoodle is rare, that doesn’t make them more expensive. Black and gold graffiti prices range from $800 to $1,300. This may seem expensive, but it is relatively inexpensive for animals like this. The Goldendoodle’s gold colour is actually more than the black coat, meaning it went from $500 to almost $2,000!

Other Rare Colours

Black Goldendoodles are not the only rare breed. Colours such as red, gray, blue, party and phantom are very rare. Red Goldendoodles are very rare and they also come from the red seed of their poodle parents. Gray and blue feathers usually come from poodle parents, but they are not as common as red feathers. This coat is rare, in addition to black there are half and phantom Goldendoodles.

The lot defines a jacket that is usually white or cream-coloured, but to be true, black and brown here and there. Feather colour only comes from poodle parents, but some poodles are rare breeds so genes are more common. Finally, the golden retriever is very rare. Ghost furs are black with golden patches on the chest, nose and paws. This shirt is rare because it’s technically a ghost shirt only if the second colour is in place.

While the Goldendoodle can have many rare feather colours, black is still rare.
