4E Kennels is proud to offer two new types of doodles. The first is a F1 Irishdoodle and the second is an F1 Irish Goldendoodle. In a great effort to keep our red doodles from fading and cancer less of a threat the Irish Setter was a logical choice. Where Retrievers can have golden and cream in their pedigree, Setters are red through and through! The Irish Setter does have more energy than a golden retriever, but when mixed with our laid back docile poodle studs, we know that our Irishdoodles make great companions and working dogs. Many have been trained to hunt, a few are therapy dogs and several have become service dogs. Irish Setters, in general, have a higher prey drive than a golden, since the Irish Lines have been kept cleaner, maintaining their breed standard far better than our American golden retrievers. Irish Setters are not as intelligent as the golden retriever, but the difference is slight and far smarter than most dog breeds. They can also be more "alert" and ampy. We have no issues training these pups to be service dogs - clearly intelligence, reliability and temperament are not a concern. Irish Doodles can be dopey and silly too! We have yet to have one complaint or one returned. They are rare, but people have fallen head over heals for them!
Why get an Irishdoodle or Irish goldendoodle?
If you love the deep mahogany coats
Want a dog that loves to use his/her nose. Great hunting dogs or Diabetic Alert Dogs
Irish Setters shed less than a golden so an Irishdoodle coat is fantastic!
Rare! I am only one of a few prestigious breeders working these bloodlines.
Great companions for families or active people. These dogs make great running partners!
