Highlights

Designer dogs, also called hybrids, aren’t true breeds — they’re crosses of two specific breeds. If you’re interested in a Goldendoodle puppy, understand that his looks, size, and temperament aren’t as predictable as those of purebreds, since you don’t know which characteristics from each breed will show up in any given dog.The Goldendoodle is the result of Poodle to Golden Retriever breedings. So far there are very few multigenerational breedings (crosses between two Goldendoodles).The Goldendoodle is considered to be a non- to light shedder, but he requires regular grooming and clipping. If the coat is kept short, it should be clipped every six to eight weeks and brushed every few weeks. If the coat is kept in its natural state, it should be brushed once every week or two.The Goldendoodle is not a watch dog, and he’s generally not known to be noisy. He may not bark even if someone knocks on the door.Although he’s got an average energy level, the Goldendoodle is not recommended for apartments. He does much better in a home with a fenced yard.The Goldendoodle requires about 20 to 30 minutes of daily exercise.Being a wonderful family companion, the Goldendoodle generally gets along well with children and does well with other dogs and family pets.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.The Goldendoodle may make an excellent companion to people with allergies.To get a healthy dog, never buy a puppy from an irresponsible breeder, puppy mill, or pet store. Look for a reputable breeder who tests her breeding dogs to make sure they’re free of genetic diseases that they might pass onto the puppies, and that they have sound temperaments.
