I found this article by Anthony Jorgensen what a very supportive article on what a wonderful breed the Goldendoodle is.
What is the breed of a dog that is a combination of charm, wit and loyalty? The answer is no other than the goldendoodle. The goldendoodle is a mixed breed of golden retriever and a poodle. Everybody seems crazy over this amazing pet, many families in US are thinking of owning a goldendoodle as the first family’s pet.
Are you thinking of owning one too? Here are the reasons why goldendoodle is the right dog for you.
1. Goldendoodles are hypoallergenic.
Goldendoodle is typically a low-shedding hybrid, which is good for people who love dogs yet sensitive to shedding hair. Though goldendoodle does shed to some degree, but breeders claim it is hypoallergenic. However, allergists believe that there is no such thing as a hypoallergenic animal. But testimonies from dog lovers claim it otherwise.
2. They are definitely adorable.
Goldendoodle’s sizes vary. They can be somewhere between standard, medium and miniature. The breeders say you can estimate the size of a goldendoodle by just adding the sizes of the parents and divide it by 2. They weigh around 40-100 lbs. They also have different coat types. They can be curly and cuddly, wavy and funny, straight and sweet. The common colors available for goldendoodles are white, cream, apricot and red. There are also rare colors such as brown, phantom and part-colored.
3. Innately fun-loving.
Goldendoodle is definitely a dog for the entire family. They are not afraid of water, they even love swimming. If there is one dog for kids that will make parents comfortable, this is the right choice for you. They look friendly, kids will not be frightened of them. It is also easier to teach new tricks to this kind of dog. They can be easily trained and go easily with strangers.
4. Instant companion.
Goldendoodles are the plug and play kind of dogs. They run, sit and play around the whole day. As if energy is continuously supplied to them. They easily interact with people. They can be instant friends if you feel down and weary, just take a look at how they live their lives, it would surely give you a lift.
Goldendoodles are the kind of dogs that anyone wishes to have. Thus, if you already own one, there are some responsibilities expected as goldendoodles owner.
The average lifespan of this variety is approximately 9-15 years. Quite expensive but it feels like you have an instant toddler. They need to be groomed as often as necessary. They need regular brushing or combing every week. That would mean a trip to pet salon a couple of times, this will be part of your monthly routines. In addition, don’t let your goldendoodle just lay down the whole day, they require moderate exercise. They love water, so let them swim. They also like the idea of daily walk in the park. Yes, you are right. They are quite health-conscious 🙂
