Frequently Asked Questions

About ABCs Puppy Zs

Where are you Located?

We are located outside of the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex in Texas. Specifically, you can find us North of Fort Worth and just West of Roanoke. Out of State? No Worries! We Offer Nationwide Hand Delivery of Our Pups all over the United States.

As a Family-Owned and Operated Breeder, we work out of Our Home and therefore we do not post Our Physical Address anywhere online. We LOVE Visitors and Welcome them to Our Family Home where the Wonderful Goldendoodle Breeding, Raising, and Socialization has its roots. Our Goldendoodle Puppy Viewings take place at various times of the year when Our Pups are AT LEAST 7 Weeks old. Interested Puppy-Parents-to-be will have the opportunity of seeing our Goldendoodles throughout the year.

We also hold Teams Video Calls for those unable to Travel or to meet some Puppies before you make the trip. In this way, you will always be able to interact with us and our Pups as well as Journey on a VIP-guided tour of ABCs Puppy Zs from the comfort of Home!

For more information and to plan your Visit, you can easily Contact Us and get an email conversation started — and Let's Get Chatting Today!

Can you Deliver Your Amazing Goldendoodle Puppies?

We absolutely can!

From Our Family Home in Texas, we work with Our Puppy Nanny who personally Hand-Delivers Your Goldendoodle Puppy into Your Arms. This Service is typically used for Flying Your Pup, but Driving Locations are also available (Contact Us to receive a personal quote). With Our Puppy Nanny, you can feel secure in knowing that the Final Balance is not Due until Go-Home, when we Hand you Your Pup.

If you would like to have Your Goldendoodle Puppy Delivery made personally by Our Puppy Nanny (to ensure their complete safety), please review the requirements below:

  • Airline Travel from Dallas-Fort Worth to Your Destination of Choice (Varies)
  • Cabin Fee for Dogs ($125)
  • Our Puppy Nanny Fee ($500)

Once the date of Go-Home has been worked out between ABCs Puppy Zs, the Family, and Our Puppy Nanny, you can then book the travel at your leisure or we are happy to do it for you.

If you would prefer to do the flying, we would be more than happy to meet you at either DFW ($200) or LOVE ($300) Airport. This would save you Our Puppy Nanny payment of $500. Please note that you would have to purchase your own Puppy Travel Carrier (or have it shipped to us and we will bring you Your Pup in Style and Ready to Fly!).

Are you overwhelmed with excitement to meet Your Pup, but sad you can't Meet the Puppy Parents? We LOVE giving Families the opportunity to meet their Puppy Parents On-Site at Our Family Estate — so we've elected to include Airports too!

Your Pup will come with all of Our Goldendoodle Goodies, but be sure to check out Our Goldendoodle Favorites for more ideas to help welcome them to their new home!

Please Reach Out to us if you have any questions and we can walk You through the entire process and answer any and all questions you may have!

What is the Complete Process at ABCs Puppy Zs?

Our Goldendoodle Process:

  • Schedule a Goldendoodle Puppy Conference
  • Request Our Puppy Reservation Agreement and Pay Your Deposit All via DocuSign
  • Schedule a Time for Choice Weekend
  • Visit Us on the Scheduled Date to Select Your Puppy or Join Us Live via Teams
  • Receive and Read Our Post-Choice Weekend Email with TONS of Helpful Info
  • Confirm and Book Your Puppy's Go-Home Date
  • Pick Up or Have Your Pup Hand-Delivered to Your Loving Arms!
What Does FIRST-Choice Male Mean?

Our Reservation process for each of Our Litters works on a First Come, First Served Basis. This simply means that the FIRST Family to Lock In their Chosen Puppy Momma and a Male or a Female will have what is known as the "Pick of the Litter". This of course would be based on whether they reserved a Male or a Female Puppy and if they are available in that litter. So the FOURTH-Choice Female simply means the FOURTH available Female after FIRST, SECOND, and THIRD-Choice have already been reserved.

We are all about the "Right Fit" and Temperament Pairing when it comes to Our Pups and their Forever Families. If you've been busy researching the amazing Goldendoodle Breed, then you've surely come across countless sites loaded with Puppies of all shapes and sizes (and breeds for that matter). And while we are a business, we prefer to take a much more personal approach and are grateful for the shared memories with Future Owners and their Fluffy Family additions!

This is why you will NEVER see us accepting deposits and especially payments online through Our Website as though we were some sort of e-commerce platform. THIS IS NOT US! We prefer to cater to Families who are "ALL IN" when it comes to their Goldendoodle. We LOVE Visitors and encourage you to make the trip to Our Family Estate, where you can meet some of Our Puppy Parents and spend time with the Pups during a No-Obligation Puppy Selection. This is a time when you can feel at home with the pups and as comfortable as can be while you make your Selection. Stop by and relax, play, or just cuddle with One of Our Babies!

What is the Price of a Goldendoodle?

Our Prices vary based on the different size types of all the Goldendoodles we breed as well as each Litter's Current Age. For Any of Our "Females", "Pick of the Litter" or "FIRST-Choice Male/Female", there is a $200 Premium added to the Final Balance at Go-Home; however, you can opt-out of FIRST Choice.

  • F1 Minis: $2,000
  • F1B Petites: $2,500
  • F1B Toys: $3,500
  • F1B Teacups: $4,500
  • F1B Micro-Teacups: $5,500

We are Often asked about Discounts, but we do not Feel Right Having Any of Our Babies Labeled as "Discounted" or "On Sale". Therefore, we Offer Everyone a Cash Discount of $100 per Every $1,000 (The Discount is Calculated before any Sales Tax*).

There is a $100 Cash Discount for Anyone Referred to us by One of ABCs Puppy Zs Extended Familias. The Extended Familia will also receive a $100 Gift Card to Amazon so they can Spoil Our Babies some more!!

The Final Payment is Due by the Date of Go-Home and must be made in the Form of ACTUAL Cash to be Eligible for the Cash Discount. Otherwise, the Balance Due Must be Paid through DocuSign by using American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa, or PayPal Credit.

We Do Not Accept ACH's, Apple Cash, Cash App, Cashier's Checks, Facebook Pay, Google Pay, Money Orders, Personal Checks, Venmo, Wire Transfers, Zelle, or any other form of Payment Gateway other than the one provided by DocuSign.

For additional due diligence, please be sure to read Our Goldendoodle Reviews and know that should you wish to personally speak with one of Our Extended Familia of Goldendoodles, we would be happy to facilitate this.

How Do I Reserve a Goldendoodle For Sale?

We Offer Early Reservation Deposits of $500 that are FULLY Refundable or Transferable Upon Request. These Early Reservations require an additional One-Time Non-Refundable payment of $25, which simply means that you can Transfer your Reservation any way you see fit and not have to worry about paying the Fee again (e.g., Work Trip and you need to push back to another Litter, or Work Trip cancelled and you want to move up to an earlier Litter, etc.).

For Early Reservations, the Process is two-fold, where we first hold a Goldendoodle Puppy Conference (Face-to-Face Teams Video Call or Face-to-Face Meeting at Our Family Home as We LOVE Visitors!) along with Our Reservation Agreement signed and verified electronically via DocuSign. Our Puppy Reservation Agreement requires the Reservation Deposit to be made after you finish signing.

To ensure that all of our Goldendoodle puppies go to a loving home, we perform a puppy parent candidate screening, which allows us to collect information on the future family of our pup and makes it easy to provide you with payment information and further details.

If you would like to reserve a Goldendoodle Puppy, you may choose from any of Our Available Goldendoodle Puppies or reserve a pup from a future litter. Once you've completed a Goldendoodle Puppy Conference and Our Puppy Reservation Agreement, you are totally locked in!

These are Our Babies, and we would not want you jumping into Puppydum unless there is 110% commitment on Your Part! This especially means that we do not want you to be so concerned over any money you put down that you jump into a rash decision just because you did not want to forfeit those funds! Puppies are priceless, and we also consider that plans can and quite often do change on a dime. We just ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you wish to CANCEL or TRANSFER Your Reservation.

What Happens After I Sign the Reservation Agreement?

Once you've been verified and signed the Reservation Agreement, you have completed the process of reserving yourself a Goldendoodle Puppy and are locked in for Your Puppy of choice or a puppy in a future litter. In the case of reserving a puppy in a future litter, please note that our pups are selected in the order by which Our Reservation Agreements are completed.

You may reserve a pup in a future litter by male or female, although reservations are limited based on whether you are reserving an F1 Mini or Micro. Please note that if no future litter puppy reservations are available, you can still make a reservation for the earliest possible available pups (this would be based on the size of each Litter) as soon as the Puppies are Born.

Please feel free to keep checking the site for updated availability as you can transfer to another Litter at ANY TIME (or of course request a Refund of Your Reservation Deposit). We stand by this completely in Our Life-Long Dream of Family-Raised Puppy Breeding, and Take the Utmost Pleasure in bringing up precious Goldendoodles! Please note that we are NOT in the business of "Deposits". If you have doubts or are unsure about your decision, then we will be the first to say let's put on the brakes — and please let us refund your reservation!

Once you've reserved a pup in the next litter, you can sit back and relax while we wait for your beautiful Goldendoodle puppy to arrive into the world!

Wait times vary depending on when you've signed your reservation agreement, completion of which is accompanied by a general wait time and regular updates on the status of Our Puppy Moms, scheduled breeding dates, and tentative dates of birth.

Our breeding process includes safe and painless Transcervical Insemination (TCI), after which the natural birthing process can take place typically within 58 or 62 days.

Why is Your Go-Home Set at 10-Weeks* and not 8-Weeks?

At ABCs Puppy Zs, we know you can't wait to get your hands on one of our soft and loving Goldendoodle puppies! But as Responsible Dog Breeders, it's our job to ensure that every puppy is as ready as can be!

That's why we follow strict puppy development guidelines that promote healthy socialization and make it easier for you to raise the perfect family dog. Just like human babies, puppies are unable to learn certain things until their brains are simply big enough! And thanks to extensive scientific research, we know exactly when it's time for behavioral and social development to begin — which leads to excellent temperament, sociability, and confidence as puppies grow.

We're not here to bash other breeders, but by now, the critical socialization period for puppies should be common knowledge among dog breeders everywhere. And while socialization typically begins around 6 weeks and lasts up to 16 weeks old, most breeders should also know that some of the most important stages can't even begin until the puppy is 7 to 8 weeks old!

From behavioral refinement (beginning around 7 weeks) to fear imprint (beginning around 8 weeks), some of the most sensitive training periods occur right before Go-Home! And because most lessons don't happen overnight, it's just as important to follow through on these life experiences daily — which puppies are learning permanently!

When we place the softest puppy you've ever felt into your arms, we want you to know that everything has already been done for good social and behavioral health to take root. Of course, you still have a puppy to raise — that's why we're here to provide all the help, tips, and tricks you'll ever need!

Our commitment to puppy breeding done right has resulted in some of the happiest dogs (and owners!) out there. And when it comes to Goldendoodles, ABCs Puppy Zs is here to offer the Most Dependable Family-Raised Puppies you can find.

Trust us, it's worth the wait!

*Go-Home for Toys, Teacups, and Micro Teacups typically begins around 12 weeks and can go up to 16 weeks.

What is Your Policy on Spaying (Females) or Neutering (Males)?

As a Responsible Small Family Goldendoodle Breeder, we take Great Pride in the Level and Degree of Our Internally Developed Health Testing Protocols. Our Sole Purpose is not only to maintain the Line of First Generation Goldendoodles, but We Have Endeavored to Set the Bold Goal of Improving that Line.

We Honestly could not call Ourselves a Responsible Breeder if we did not have a Spay/Neuter Contract with All of Our Pups. This is something that we Believe in to the Core and Appreciate the Excellence that Anyone May Apply to such A Practice of Responsibility. With that in Mind, Yes, We Strongly Enforce Our Spay/Neuter Contract! If we do not receive the appropriate documentation along with the Veterinarian of Record information that allows us to call and verify the procedure was performed before the age of 1, then the 5-Year Health Guarantee becomes null and void.

This is not to say we will balk at working with another Breeder, but as all of the Top Tier AKC Breed Clubs of Merit do, We Require You to Prove Yourself first. For all the interested Responsible Breeders out there, please do not hesitate to Contact Us, or better yet, Schedule A Goldendoodle Puppy Conference so we may discuss this further. Overall, we just want to make sure Our Pups are going to Loving Families (and Those Responsible, Morally Bound Breeders) as such that they may Align Themselves and have Wonderful Lives.

What is a Goldendoodle Puppy Health Guarantee?

At ABCs Puppy Zs, Our 5-Year Goldendoodle Puppy Health Guarantee* is just us putting our money where our mouth is in the way of promising great puppy health and giving new owners certain options in the case of a life-threatening congenital health condition onset during the first 5 years with their Goldendoodle. The Health Guarantee is standard and uniform in all respects; however, it does not cover aliments such as hypoglycemia or conditions that can be sourced to or aggravated by exogenous factors.

Dog health problems can be very difficult to talk about, because we all fall in love with these pups the moment they're born and want them to be as healthy and happy as can be. While we stand by our first-rate Goldendoodle Breeding Program, unfortunately, a 100% clean bill of health from birth is impossible for any living thing and we can only dream of never having to worry about the onset of diseases and conditions that may be present from birth.

To give you confidence in your Goldendoodle puppy purchase, we offer a 5-Year Health Guarantee, which, in the case of any life-threatening congenital disease onset, allows to you receive a full refund in the 1st year and a replacement Goldendoodle puppy in the subsequent years of ownership. Let's all hope that's the last you have to hear about our health guarantee, and you can rest assured that we have done and will continue to do everything imaginably possible to promote enduring health and a long and happy life for all of Our Dogs!

*Medical Records Showing Proof of Neutering or Spaying AFTER Your Pup Turns 12 MONTHS is Required. The procedure must be performed before the Puppy turns 18 MONTHS with all the related medical records received within 30 days by the Seller or the 5-year Health Guarantee becomes null and void.

About Goldendoodles

What is a Goldendoodle?

A Goldendoodle is the wonderful result of a controlled cross-breed between a purebred male Poodle and a female purebred Golden Retriever. The idea was first conceived back in 1969, when breeders sought a guide dog that could match the Golden Retriever in obedience, health and trainability while suiting people allergic to dog hair.

The Poodle turned out to be the perfect match, and passes traits of intelligence, athleticism, a loving personality and great looks along with its non-shedding coat on to its Goldendoodle offspring. A match made in heaven!

What is the Difference between an F1, F1A, F1B, and F1BB Goldendoodle Puppy?

Great question!

The different letters and numbers simply refer to the Goldendoodle's Generation and which percentage of Golden Retriever and Poodle are in that generation.

For example, an F1, also called F1A, is a First-Generation Goldendoodle with 50% Poodle and 50% Golden Retriever.

Breeding an F1 Goldendoodle with a purebred Poodle results in an F1B Goldendoodle, which is more Poodle than Golden Retriever at a ratio of 75% Poodle to 25% Golden Retriever.

An F1BB (typically referred to as an F1B) Goldendoodle is the result of cross-breeding between a first-generation F1B and a purebred Poodle. This breed is still more Poodle than Golden Retriever, but only slightly more Poodle than in a first-generation F1B.

In other words:

F1A = 1/2 Golden Retriever and 1/2 Poodle

F1B = 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 Golden Retriever

F1BB = Slightly more Poodle than F1B

Each Generation of Our Goldendoodle Puppies have unique qualities and come in various sizes!

Why are there Different Sizes of Goldendoodles?

It's all part of the fun! Since Goldendoodles get their traits from Poodles, you'll have the chance to love your Goldendoodle in various sizes from mini and micro to toy and teacup sizes!

Poodles were bred across generations for the purpose of making a smaller variety, so today there are 3 poodle sizes with an additional mini size unique to Goldendoodles.

Regardless of which size dog you're looking for, Our Goldendoodle Puppies retain all of the amazing qualities both parent breeds have to offer.

What are the Sizes of Each Goldendoodle Breed Types?

Our Beautiful Goldendoodle Puppies For Sale come in 5 unique sizes which include the Mini, Micro (Petite or Micro Mini), Toy, Teacup, and Micro Teacup Goldendoodle Puppy.

How do the measurements work?

An F1 Mini Goldendoodle Puppy grows into a Mature dog that is on average 15 to 20 inches in height and weighing on average between 25-35lbs. The Healthy weight range as an adult is 25-50lbs.

An F1B Mini Goldendoodle Puppy grows into a Mature dog that is on average 15 to 20 inches in height and weighing on average between 25-45lbs. The Healthy weight range as an adult is 25-60lbs.

A Micro Goldendoodle (also referred to as a Micro Mini Goldendoodle or a Petite Goldendoodle) Puppy grows into a Mature dog that is on average 13 to 18 inches in height and weighing between 15-20lbs. The Healthy weight range as an adult is 15-25lbs.

A Toy Goldendoodle Puppy grows into a Mature dog that is on average 11 to 16 inches in height and weighing between 10-15lbs. The Healthy weight range as an adult is 10-20lbs.

A Teacup Goldendoodle Puppy grows into a Mature dog that is on average 9 to 14 inches in height and weighing between 7-13lbs. The Healthy weight range as an adult is 5-15lbs.

A Micro Teacup Goldendoodle Puppy grows into a Mature dog that is on average 7 to 13 inches in height and weighing between 5-8lbs. The Healthy weight range as an adult is 5-10lbs.

What Type of Health Tests are Conducted on the Puppy Parents?

That's a great question, because part of having healthy Goldendoodle puppies is ensuring that both parents—and especially Our Puppy Moms—are in very good health and ready to make healthy and happy offspring. At ABCs Puppy Zs, we perform comprehensive health checkups on all of Our Puppy Parents at least twice a year. We also obtain their Breed Class of Certifications from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) along with a Comprehensive Breed Specific DNA Panel for a complete genetics background on all of Our Puppy Parents.

In this way, we do our best to prevent certain health conditions that are known to occur in both the Poodle and the Golden Retriever breed from being passed on to the Goldendoodle puppies. All of the details on Our Puppy Parent Health testing performed can be found on each of our New or Upcoming Litter pages.

Can You Tell Me More About Goldendoodle DNA Genetics and Traits?

Goldendoodles are part Poodle and part Golden Retriever, which means they inherit DNA genetics and traits from both breeds. As with all breeds of dog, certain conditions and diseases are known to occur in Poodles and Golden Retrievers, which may be prevented in their offspring by running comprehensive DNA background checks on the puppy parents.

As per the recommendation of the OFA, all of Our Puppy Moms have been tested for the following diseases and traits:


Golden Retrievers




*Our Poodle** Dads are "sd/sd"; Our Golden Retriever Mommas are either "SD/sd, IC" or "sd/sd, IC"; Our Goldendoodle Mommas are either "SD/sd, F" or "sd/sd, F". What does this mean? ALL of Our F1 Goldendoodles will be Moderate-Low Shedding while ALL of Our F1Bs will be Low Shedding.

**FYI: ALL Poodles are either Moderate-Low Shedding or Low Shedding.

How do you Care for and Maintain the Health of Your Goldendoodle Puppies?

ABCs Puppy Zs is All About Promoting Great Health, Happiness, and Enduring Companionship, Which Makes Our Puppies' Health of Paramount Importance to us. We conduct all necessary measures to ensure that every Goldendoodle for sale has passed their health examinations and is happily awaiting a trip to their new family and home.

All Pups receive their necessary age-appropriate vaccinations and the documentation is provided with every Goldendoodle puppy along with a 5-Year Health Guarantee.

Every one of Our Goldendoodle Puppies receives a complete top-of-the-line Vaccination regimen written out and designed by Our Veterinarian:
