All of our parent dogs are genetically health tested and screened for over 170 health conditions to ensure they are going to pass on suitable traits to their puppies. If at any time the health of our parent dogs are at risk, they will be removed from the breeding program.
We pride ourselves in the health and quality of the puppies we breed and offer a two year health guarantee with each puppy that goes home.
Our parents are also OFA hip, elbow, cardiac, eyes, & patella tested.
Some people are under the assumption that if it has "doodle" in the name, it means it is automatically non-shedding. Unfortunately, that is not the case. At Saluda Ridge Goldendoodles we coat test each parent dog and scientifically match dogs with mates that have the best outcome to produce non shedding puppies.
