Goldendoodles and Your Family

May 21, 2018

Are Goldendoodles good family pets?

If your family is in the market for a new pet dog, a Goldendoodle is certainly worth looking at. The Goldendoodle, a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle from which it derives its name, is a young hybrid developed in the 1990s. The idea behind the Goldendoodle was to create an intelligent but larger Poodle crossbreed that maintained the desired low-dander, low-shedding coat, and possessed the obedience and friendliness of the Golden Retriever. Originally designed as a guide dog, the Goldendoodle’s all around friendliness is perhaps its single most important characteristic. And what family wouldn’t want that in a pet? It is a very social dog and is meant to be kept inside the house. It can, in fact, suffer from separation anxiety if left alone for long periods of time. This makes it a perfect pet to have around the home and in the presence of family members. Though it can be quite fluffy, it is also considered to be a non- to light shedder and may be a good match for people with allergies.

Are Goldendoodles good with kids?

They are well known for being affectionate pets and particularly friendly and gentle with children. Thanks to their size, they are sturdy enough to handle the often heavy-handed petting children are prone to dish out. They are always willing to play which makes them a good match for kids who never seem to run out of energy. As with any breed, adults should always supervise interactions between Goldendoodles and young children to prevent accidental biting, tail or ear pulling, and the like. Any dog, no matter how friendly, should not be left unsupervised with a child. Goldendoodles are exceptionally easy to train. Ideally, socialization and training should start while the dog is still a puppy and continue throughout its life.

Benefits to your family

The Goldendoodle is a popular doodle hybrid for good reason. Four reasons, actually. First, Goldendoodles are very loving dogs. Though they are generally larger than other doodle hybrids, they see themselves as lap dogs, who love to cuddle and receive lots of affection from family members. This inherent sweetness makes the Goldendoodle a natural candidate for therapy dog training. Second, the Poodle and the Golden Retriever are two of the smartest dog breeds. When you pair the two, you get a pup of great intelligence and emotional intuition. Most Goldendoodle owners talk to their pets as if they were children and swear the doodles understand them! Third, Goldendoodles love to run, jump, and even swim. They are perfect outdoor companions and can easily keep pace with your children’s seemingly boundless energy. Last but certainly not least, Goldendoodles are adorable. That’s, in fact, the first thing that compels people to stop and ask about Goldendoodles. You can’t help but feel like being in the company of a celebrity when taking a Goldendoodle out for a walk. And having an adorable, loving, smart, and energetic pet is certainly a great benefit to any family.

Love teacups…I am a first time owner. Thinking mix of maltese and shitzu…but not sure what to look for to make sure it is in good health. A breeder contacted me and had what I am looking for…but she said it was the runt…and will be tiny.

Your website impressed me…please contact me. How much too…curious on price.
