The Step-By-Step Guide To Bringing Home A Mini Groodle

Buying a puppy is a daunting task, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly; after all, you’re welcoming a new member into your family! Although the Puppies Downunder urges families to take their decision to buy a puppy seriously, we also believe that people should have access to support throughout the entire adoption process. As a leading mini groodle breeder, we pride ourselves on being there for our customers from the moment they contact us and support them throughout their dog’s life. We’re here to step you through the purchase and adoption process, so you know exactly what to expect when buying a mini groodle from Puppies Downunder. 

A Few Things To Do Before You Buy A Mini Groodle

Before you start searching for a mini groodle for sale, there are a few things you need to check and do to make sure you’re ready for the commitment. 

  • Check the budget. A lot of people think the cost of the puppy is the thing they need to budget for, and while it’s the most substantial initial outlay, it’s by no means the only investment you’ll need to make. You’ll need to make room in your budget for all the toys, grooming supplies, and food, as well as regular vet visits, registration fees, insurance, and any amendments you need made to the house to make it puppy-safe. 

  • Make time to bond with your puppy. We suggest taking a week or two off work so you can settle your puppy into its new home. Trust us; you’ll want to spend every moment with your new puppy. 

  • Do some research and planning. If you’ve never raised a puppy before, it’s a good idea to research what to expect and training techniques. You should also read into crate training methods to teach your puppy independence and reduce the chances of anxiety development. If you’ve had experience with training puppies, make sure you brush up on the unique nuances of the mini groodle breed, so you’re ready to hit the ground running. Consider booking your new puppy into puppy school, so they have plenty of opportunities to socialise with other people and dogs as well as learn a few tricks. As a leading mini groodle breeder, the Puppies Downunder team can give you some expert tips and tricks to help you train your mini groodle.

  • Consider registration and insurance. You’ll need to register your puppy once you bring them home, but different councils and districts have different rules for how and when you can register. You should also look through options for insurance policies and choose the best one for your mini groodle and your budget. Remember, the earlier you organise insurance, the better your premiums will be as your dog grows older. 

Why Choose A Mini Groodle Over A Full-Sized Groodle? 

If you’re tossing up between a full-sized groodle or a mini groodle, here are a few things to consider that may help you decide. 

  • Are you limited on space? Groodles are a mix between a poodle and a golden retriever, so they grow to be big dogs. If you live in an apartment or a townhouse, they might be too big to keep indoors. On the other hand, mini groodles are pred with a miniature poodle, so they only grow to be around 35-40cm in height and 10-15kg in weight, which is ideal for apartment living. 

  • Mini groodles tend to live the longest. The average groodle has a life expectancy of around 10-15 years, and mini groodles usually live the longest. 

  • They’re just as intelligent, affectionate, and playful as their full-sized relatives. All the things you love about the groodle are exactly the same in a mini groodle; it just comes in a smaller package. 

  • They stay a little teddy forever. People love groodle puppies because they look like cuddly little teddy bears. The best part about mini groodles is that they stay little!
