Standard Goldendoodle temperament
Friendly: Goldendoodles love both humans and other animals. They thrive on human company, and it doesn’t usually matter if it is with their owners or strangers. As a result, they do not make good guard dogs and sometimes get separation anxiety if left alone for long periods of time.
Affectionate: Even though they are friendly to strangers, Goldendoodles still have a special bond with their owners. They quickly become attached to people they spend a lot of time with, and they never tire of being with their owners and family.
Intelligent: Goldendoodles are a smart breed. Not only does this make them easier to train, but it also allows them to be used for intelligent roles such as search-and-rescue, guide dogs, and therapy dogs.
Sociable: Goldendoodles love spending time with humans, and they play well with the family and children. No matter what the family is doing, Goldendoodles want to be a part of the action!
Trainable: With their friendly temperament and intelligence, Goldendoodles are one of the easier breeds to train. They respond well to training that is done consistently and properly, and they soon become accustomed to house rules and expectations.
Adaptable: Mini Goldendoodles can adapt well to different living environments, including apartments or houses with yards. However, they still require regular exercise and mental enrichment to thrive.
Energetic: These puppies are usually energetic and playful. Regular exercise and mental stimulation are important to keep them happy and well-behaved. They enjoy activities like fetch, playtime, and outdoor adventures.
When considering a Mini Goldendoodle puppy, it’s essential to research reputable breeders who prioritize the health and well-being of their dogs. Spend time with the puppies before making a decision to ensure their personalities align with your family’s lifestyle and preferences.
Standard Goldendoodle Breed history
In the mid-1900s, breeders began crossing Poodles with several breeds, the most popular being Labrador Retrievers and Cocker Spaniel.
The resulting breeds, known as Labradoodles and Cockapoos, became popular in the United States, and especially among families.
As a result, Golden Retrievers were bred with Poodles in the late 1900s to create the Goldendoodle breed.
Goldendoodles are still a relatively young breed, and many today are first-generation Goldendoodles. As a result, the breed is not recognized by any major breed registry.
However, there are many clubs and online organizations dedicated to Goldendoodles, and many believe that Goldendoodles will become the most popular of the Poodle designer hybrids.
Standard Goldendoodle Average size
While Goldendoodles vary in size based on the Poodle, the standard Goldendoodle averages 16-24 inches in height at the shoulder and weighs 50-80 pounds.
Average Standard Goldendoodle lifespan
The average Goldendoodle lifespan is 10-15 years.
Standard Goldendoodle body features
Because it is a hybrid breed, the exact coat markings and features do vary from puppy to puppy.
However, most Goldendoodles do favor the Poodle side of the breed and will often have the curlier, shorter hair of the Poodle.
grooming Your Standard Goldendoodle Puppy
Even though they favor the coat of a Poodle, Goldendoodles still require regular care and grooming. It is recommended that you groom your Goldendoodle’s coat several times a week.
Their coats and skin usually create natural body oils, and this results in regular baths not being required unless the body is unnaturally dirty.
Keeping Your Standard Goldendoodle Puppy Healthy
Because they are still a young breed, not much is known specifically about the overall health of the Goldendoodle breed. However, there are no known health risks, and if you choose a reputable breeder, your Goldendoodle puppy should not have any significant health issues.
Because of their long, floppy ears, it is also important to regularly check the ears for signs of infection. Whenever your Goldendoodle gets wet, make sure the hair inside the ears completely dries out.
Like all dogs, Goldendoodles are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or lameness if not addressed.
One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from excessive running on hard surfaces. This is especially vital when they are a puppy.
Typical Standard Goldendoodle Allergens
While Goldendoodles are popular for being more hypoallergenic than Golden Retrievers, it does not mean they are entirely allergen-free.
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. These skin cells are shed by any animal, including humans. Goldendoodles will typically shed less than Golden Retrievers, but this does not eliminate dander or allergens.
If you have a family member with allergen concerns, it is always good to consult with your family physician.
- What colors can Goldendoodles be?Goldendoodles can be a variety of colors, including black, copper, white, cream, gray, golden, apricot, or red. Golden is the most common color. Goldendoodles tend to lighten with age.
- Do Goldendoodles bark a lot?Goldendoodles are moderate barkers. They may bark some but they are not known to be loud. They don’t make good watch dogs and may not even bark if someone knocks at the door.
- Do Goldendoodles wander off a lot?Goldendoodles are active and curious, so they may wander off, but they aren’t necessarily prone to it. It depends on your Goldendoodle's temperament, how you have trained it, and if they have excess energy that they need to burn off.
- Are Goldendoodles hyper?Goldendoodle puppies may be hyper at times, like all puppies. You can expect them to calm down around 12-18 months of age. After that Goldendoodles are moderately active dogs who love to run and play but aren’t usually hyperactive. Goldendoodles do better in homes with yards than in apartments.
- Are Goldendoodles ever destructive?Goldendoodles are highly social, so they are prone to separation anxiety. If they are left alone for too long they may become bored, anxious, and destructive.
- Do Goldendoodles smell bad?Like all dogs, Goldendoodles can get a bit stinky sometimes. However, they tend to be less smelly than most other breeds, a trait they inherit from their poodle parents. How much your Goldendoodle smells depends on what environment they live in and how often you bathe them. If you keep them and the environment clean, then you shouldn't have to worry about this issue!
- Are Poodle crosses healthier than purebred dogs?Mixed breed dogs do tend to be healthier and live longer than purebred dogs. This is partly because they have greater genetic diversity and so are not as susceptible to common recessive disorders as purebreds are. However, no animal or dog breed has a guarantee on the exact illnesses they might get over a lifetime.
- Are Goldendoodles AKC recognized?No, Goldendoodles are not AKC recognized because they are a fairly young breed and because they are a designer breed (a hybrid breed.) At this time, AKC does not recognize any designer breeds, but this doesn't make them any less loved or valuable!
