Why do you have to be so nasty?

Nasty? I asked you a question. What do you think "registered hybrid" means? If you can't even answer a simple question like that, then how on earth do you answer the sorts of questions your puppy buyers ask?
Like many hybrids..which a Goldendoodle is...

No, they are not. A hybrid is a cross between two different species (camas and ligers and coydogs, oh my!). Golden Retrievers and Poodles are not different species. They are both dogs, and their offspring may correctly be called crossbreds or mixed breeds, but it is absolutely incorrece not to mention misleading to call them hybrids.
they are "registered hybrids".

Registered by whom? What does that registration mean, and why should anyone care about it?
Unfortunately it sounds like you need a little more education.

I tend to think that particular condition is a fortunate thing. It means I'm still on the right side of the grass.

Education is nearly always a good thing, whether you agree with what you're learning or not. What "Doodle Planet" (YIKES - in a header it looks stupid but used in a sentence it looks nasty) meant to say was that she thinks you need re-education, a different matter entirely.

that dogs...regardless of breed...can carry Pollen and allergens on their coat just by going outside and perhaps its not the DOG but the outdoor allergens they are allergic to???

Duh! But all dogs have dander even hairless dogs so no dog is absolutely hypoallergenic, even if it never set foot outside!
Do you not believe that other families have had to REHOME their purebred dogs due to allergies?

And *oodle mixes are on that list of dogs that some folks are allergic to. Marketing your puppies as a miracle solution for people who are allergic to dogs is misleading. It is also kind of silly, because anyone who is allergic to dogs is less likely to be allergic to a purebred Poodle than to the Golden Retriever mixes you breed.
And I say that as someone who has significant allergies, and who *is* allergic to Poodles, but who can live reasonably well with some other breeds of dogs.
With regards to the kennel club WE belong to, they require ALL of the breeding stock to be AKC..which all of ours are.

Why is that significant? AKC registration is not a measure of quality. It only means that the dog is a purebred of a certain breed.
DUEL register

Them's fightin' words!

I should think so! I think it's also inevitable, at least for most people.

Yes, probably. How dare I be resistant to indoctrination?!

( Correct, and Breeder hobbyists sell their puppies at FAR less than it costs

to produce them because they are doing the breedings to ... instead of hyping them for what the market will bear.)

Keep dreaming! THAT MUST BE WHAT YOU SPEND ON YOUR OWN MUTT BECAUSE THERE'S NO WAY YOU COULD BE A ... BECAUSE CERTAINLY THERE WOULD BE NO WAY YOU COULD OWN A DOG AND PAY NOTHING FOR ITS UPKEEP! "MAKE EXPENSES??"

No one..I repeat NO ONE gets reimbursed for their pet ownership.

That's a given. Why you would even think that's what was being adressed is simply some sort of bizarre version of "reading comprehension" on your part (or really, a total lack thereof).
I have news for you nutcase, just owning ONE dog causes the owner to have expenses and if you think that getting $50 a dog will reimburse you for the essentials you need to have quality puppies..

Um,that's the point. You don't have "quality puppies". You're not even doing the basic health testing needed to insure physically sound puppies. So "quality" is something that you'd have to work hard to not quite make.
I see that on your website, you blame all temperament issues that occur on the owner. That right there is a profound cop out. Don't you have any idea how inherited temperament is? Shyness isn't learned..its inherited. Inherited shyness is exacerbated by improper socialization, but it would be really very hard to take a profoundly temperamentally sound pup and turn it into a snivelling mess, even with weird socialization. It might get glitchy and need to be helped through some issues if it was, say, locked up with no human contact besides the owner for several weeks (isn't that what you do with the puppies, by the way?), but a pup with an unflappable temperament would be hard to ruin.

The fact that you felt the need to write the disclaimer taking zero* responsibility for shyness and fear issues in your puppies suggests that you also aren't even putting basic care into insuring smentally sound puppies. That also makes you more than a rock's throw away from "quality puppies"..no matter *what the breed or mixed breed.
..why don't you get up off your butt and do it and come back and tell me what it cost ya![/nq]You're speaking to a woman who not only knows more than you do how much a pet can cost, And someone who decidedly does NOT think the term "Mutts" is an insult. The present light of my life is a little Mutt. And when people ask me what breed she is (as they do several times a day because she's just got a special somnething to her), I tell her specifically that she is a MUTT. You see, I want people to understand that mutts are great. I don't need to make up some cutesy Designer label in order to cutesify her mixed breed heritage.

I also don't feel the need to ego breed more of her. You see, given her trainability, her personality, her size, and her in person sparkle I could have opted to not spay her and would have had people lining up for puppies from her..but that would have been realy irresponsible and would have been solely to feed the HUMAN'S ego, which is a shitty reason to breed.
I see what this group is really about..a bunch of self rightous hypocrites sitting yourselves on self made pedestals..well..so be it. This group is for whiny, think you know it all nuts.

Well, we do promote responsible breeding practices.

If that's a problem for you, then I could see how you'd get upset by that.

Don't think that, on the topic of responsible breeding practices, you'll find very many hypocrites here though. Guess you just grabbed the first insult you thought up. Of all the insulting words that could apply to many people here, when it comes to the welfare of dogs, that's not really one of them. Self righteous? Sure..and when it comes to dogs' welfare, I'll be as self righteous as I need to be. I'll also call crappy breeding practices when I see them. So will most of the others here. And many saw that in you. Sorry if you find that offensive, but its hwat people see in your practices. You will, obviously, take offense to that..but it doesn't make it any less true.
