Goldendoodles are Family Friendly!
Goldendoodles are known to become fast friends with children and other dog breeds, making them an ideal addition for any family. In addition, those who prefer peace and quiet will love them. Their calm demeanor is part of what makes Goldendoodles so friendly and anyone needing a little cheering up, their happy demeanor will bring an instant smile to anyone’s face.
The Perfect Mix
An adorable mix between the Golden Retriever and Poodle, Goldendoodles are the ultimate combination of good looks, smart wits, and playfulness. The hybrid is known as a “designer breed” because they were bred to have the lovable qualities of both of their parents. Keep in mind, though, that because they’re a mix, it’s hard to know how much of each parent they inherit.
Got Allergies? Get a Goldendoodle!
Poodles don’t shed and are very athletic and intelligent, while Golden Retrievers are lovable and playful family dogs. Some Goldendoodles are hypoallergenic and most don’t even shed, making them great for owners with allergies. It is important to realize, however, that all dogs have dander (dead skin cells), saliva, and urine, where allergens exist, so there is no guarantee a Goldendoodle won’t set off an allergic reaction.
Goldendoodle Sizes And Generations
The F1 standard size Goldendoodle was the first to be bred. It is the product of a standard Poodle crossed with a Golden Retriever. The typical mature weight is 50-75 lbs.
The F1 mini/medium Goldendoodle is the product of a miniature Poodle crossed with a Golden Retriever. They mature to 25-45 lbs and have a 50% chance of being low shedding.
The F1B Goldendoodle is produced by crossing an F1 Goldendoodle with a Poodle. The mature adult weight is determined by the size of the parents. These dogs will have a higher success rate for non-shedding over the F1 generation.
The multigen Goldendoodle is the product of two Goldendoodle parents. The multigen is the most hypo-allergenic with a 98% non-shedding success rate.
