The Goldendoodle is an affectionate and gentle dog that has gained popularity since he was first developed in 1990s.
Goldendoodles are highly social and get along well with everyone. Goldendoodles should not live outside or in a kennel,
since they thrive when they are in contact with the people they love. They're also versatile working dogs. Goldendoodles
have achieved success as guide dogs, service dogs, therapy dogs, and sniffer dogs. Goldendoodles have also done well in
agility. Goldendoodles can be very easy to train and are a good match for first-time or timid owners. They're not known
to have any aggressive traits, but they do need proper socialization to avoid any shyness or fearfulness. Goldendoodles
also need daily contact with their owners; they'll suffer from separation anxiety if they're left for too long. The best
way to avoid any destructive behavior is to crate them and to provide toys and treats to keep them busy throughout the
day. Keeping the radio on when you're out is another great way to keep them happy. Goldendoodles are considered to be
non- to light shedders and may be a good match for people with allergies. They do require weekly or biweekly brushing,
and many owners opt to have them clipped. Although Goldendoodles are a young designer breed, that hasn't stopped
people from understanding their worth. They have become popular quickly, and their star is still rising. They make
excellent family dogs and provide gentle, intelligent companionship throughout their lifetimes. Like every dog, the
Goldendoodle needs early socialization — exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences — when
they're young. Socialization helps ensure that your Goldendoodle puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog.
