A Goldendoodle is a crossbred or hybrid dog created by crossing the Golden Retriever and the Standard or Miniature Poodle. Originally bred as a larger alternative to the already popular designer breed known as the Cockapoo, the Goldendoodle has proven to be an excellent family dog.
The Labradoodle was first deliberately bred in 1990’s, after both the Cockapoo and the Labradoodle gained footholds. The goal behind the Goldendoodle’s development was to create a larger Doodle that maintained the desired low-dander, low-shedding coat and that possessed the intelligent and friendly nature of the Golden Retriever.
Like most Golden Retrievers and Poodles, Goldendoodles are generally friendly, energetic and good with families and children (although as with any dog the temperament may vary between individuals). The Goldendoodle is a very social dog who should not live away from his family. He’s are not suited to living in a kennel or outside; he wants to be in the house. The Goldendoodle can suffer from separation anxiety if left for long periods at a time.
Like their parent breeds, both of which are amongst the world’s most intelligent dog breeds, Goldendoodles are very intelligent and quite trainable. Goldendoodles can be taught to obey verbal or sign language commands, or both, and remain commonly used as guide dogs for disabled or handicapped persons around the world.
