Dog Breed's Main Info
The Breed's History:
The goldendoodle is usually bred to be a family companion dog. It may suit families with dog allergies, if the puppy has inherited hair characteristics of its poodle parent.
A person may select a goldendoodle because he or she loves the golden retriever temperament, but would prefer a dog that sheds less hair. Although not all goldendoodles exhibit the non-shedding coat type of the standard poodle, most goldendoodles do have a low to non-shedding coat.
The goldendoodle is usually tolerable for people with allergies, especially a goldendoodle with a completely non-shedding coat.
The goldendoodle may shed less than a golden retriever, but the degree of shedding will vary from dog to dog. Grooming requirements are as varied as coat types, but most doodles require regular brushing to avoid matting. A dog with a coat that sheds less will require more grooming than one that sheds more often.
While some breeders claim that the goldendoodle is a hypoallergenic dog, no studies have proven that any canine is completely hypoallergenic.
If they inherit the characteristics from the golden retriever parent and the poodle (originally bred as a duck retriever in France and Germany) parent, goldendoodles can make good bird dogs. Not many people outside of the breed world know that most standard poodles retain their retriever instincts and make excellent hunting companions.
