Goldendoodle

INTRODUCTION

The Goldendoodle is a “designer dog”, a hybrid dog breed resulting from the mixing of the Poodle with the Golden Retriever. Like all other designer “breeds”, this Doodle is not really a breed of its own, but a crossbreed, and in this case, a crossbreed that is enjoying increasing popularity. Despite its unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these hybrid dogs in shelters and rescues. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these hybrid dogs in shelters and rescues, so opt to adopt them if you can. However, Goldendoodles can be susceptible, like any dog, to common diseases and conditions, such as hip injuries. That’s why we recommend getting Lemonade Pet Insurance coverage early in your Goldendoodle’s life. Lemonade Pet Insurance starts at $10 a month and will cover your puppy for these unexpected conditions (once their waiting periods are over). It’s good for novice dog parents and experienced canine families alike, and it’s hard to find a more loving companion than a Goldendoodle.

HIGHLIGHTS

Designer dogs, also called hybrids, are not true breeds: they are crosses of two specific breeds. If you are interested in a Goldendoodle puppy, understand that its appearance, size and temperament are not as predictable as those of pure breeds, as it is not known what characteristics of each breed will appear in a given dog.The Goldendoodle is the result of crosses of Poodle with Golden Retriever. The Goldendoodle is considered a dog with no coat, but requires regular grooming and trimming. If the coat is kept short, it should be trimmed 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 one to two weeks.The Goldendoodle is not a watchdog, and is generally not known to be noisy. The Goldendoodle is not a watchdog, and is generally not known to be noisy, so it may not bark even if someone knocks on the door. The Goldendoodle requires 20 to 30 minutes of daily exercise and is a wonderful family companion, so it generally gets along well with children and gets along well with other dogs and family pets. The Goldendoodle is a very sociable dog that should not live away from its family. It is not suited to living in a kennel or outdoors; it wants to be in the house.The Goldendoodle can suffer from separation anxiety if left for long periods of time.The Goldendoodle can be an excellent companion for people with allergies.To get a healthy dog, never buy a puppy from an irresponsible breeder, puppy mill or pet shop. Look for a reputable breeder who tests their breeding dogs to make sure they are free of genetic diseases that can be passed on to puppies and that they have a sound temperament.

HISTORY

The Goldendoodle is considered one of the newest of the “Doodle” breeds, or poodle mixes. Breeding began in the 1990s, after the Cockapoo and Labradoodle took hold. The theory behind the development of the Goldendoodle is to create a larger poodle that maintains the desired low dander and low lint coat and possesses the intelligent and friendly nature of the Golden Retriever. The fact that the Goldendoodle is still a fairly young crossbreed means that most puppies are the result of first generation breeding. That is, most are Golden Retriever and Poodle mixes; as yet, breeding rarely occurs between Goldendoodle pairs.Although the Goldendoodle has gained some popularity, especially in Australia, there is still no club or registry for the breed. However, there are several online communities for Goldendoodle lovers and owners. The Goldendoodle’s popularity continues to rise, and many believe it will surpass that of other Doodle breeds.
