4. Not Good Watchdogs

Come on, you knew this all along. How can such a tiny little dog be a good watchdog? Yes, size is nothing but a number for finding out the watchdog capabilities of your pet. For instance, small dogs like Chihuahuas or mini Poodle are excellent watchdogs but a teacup Goldendoodle? Not so much.

They love humans so much that they will be friendly to anyone who steps inside your house. Moreover, these dogs are not loud or restless – my cuties do not even bark at night, which is great for my sleeping schedule but not so much for security, though. 


You will be happy to know that teacup Goldendoodles are hypoallergenic for people who suffer from allergies. One of the primary reasons for breeding these dogs is they are perfect pets for people with dog allergies. 

Since Golden Retrievers cause breathing issues in people suffering from allergies, breeders created this hybrid breed to solve the problem. Amongst all the crossbreeds, teacup Goldendoodles are the most hypoallergenic creatures. Good for me, I suppose!

6.Easy To Train

Easy To Train

I have already mentioned a little about how easy it is to train a teacup Goldendoodle. Teacup Goldendoodles are not very active dogs who need a lot of daily exercise. In fact, 30 minutes of daily exercise is enough for these cuties. Moreover, they can adapt to any weather situation, making them perfect for both hot and cold weather. 

Since these doges love pleasing their owners and are intelligent, it will be extremely easy to train your baby. Not just that, some proud owners even say that these cuties are the most trainable breed they have ever come across. 

7.Some Are Dwarfs

Sometimes these tiny dogs could also have dwarfism in them. In case you discover this later, it’s best to speak to the breeder. This is because dwarfism does not just merely make your dog smaller – their already tiny limbs are even shorter, making most owners worried because this also causes problems related to mobility. 

Additionally, some other health problems, like spinal issues, as well as hip diseases, and hormonal deformities, are common in such instances. 

8.Prone To Health Problems

Prone To Health Problems

All breeds of dogs have health problems but none like a teacup Goldendoodle. Unfortunately, teacup Goldendoodles are prone to several health problems, and as a proud owner of one, I am always taking extra care to keep my dog healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally. 

Teacup Goldendoodles can develop the following health problems,

  • Progressive retinal atrophy – the most common health issue that leads to bilateral degeneration in the dog’s eyes. 
  • Von Willebrand’s disease – this one’s genetic, and it’s a disorder that causes clotting in the blood. 
  • Patellar Luxation – A kind of injury in the knees that is more common in a toy Goldendoodle
  • Hypothyroidism – Caused by dwarfism, this medical condition enables insufficient hormone production in teacup Goldendoodles.

9. Designer Breed

By now, you can understand that teacup Goldendoodles are a designer dog breed. But, come on, it’s pretty fancy. Breeders invest a lot of money to achieve the perfect cross between Golden Retrievers and Miniature Poodles. So, in case you want to buy one, it’s important to remember that these will cost you plenty. 

A teacup Goldendoodle is not officially registered as a breed and only became popular in the late 90s. Thus, it is best to understand that this breed was specifically developed for people who can afford to take care of them. I adopted mine – so I am out of this equation. 

10. Best As Service Pets 

The Golden Retriever’s obedience and the Miniature Poodles’ intelligence make teacup Goldendoodles great as service pets. They may not be good as watchdogs, but they are amazing as guide dogs or therapy dogs. I can proudly vouch for my pet, who has replaced all the sadness with a whole lot of love.
