goldendoodle grooming

Regular brushing and grooming is a requirement for this breed, though the need for trimming will depend on how much Poodle the dog inherited. Goldendoodles are not as “hypoallergenic” as Poodles in many cases, though they still tend to shed a little less than Golden Retrievers. The Goldendoodle is generally a very friendly and people oriented breed, much like both of its parents. In cases where the Goldendoodle is bred from a Toy or Miniature Poodle, however, this may not always be the case – these dogs are more likely to be inpatient around children and they may be less tolerant of other dogs. Most Goldendoodles, however, make excellent family pets because they do well around both children and other dogs. Goldendoodles are also very intelligent dogs which makes them highly trainable. These dogs do very well as assistance and therapy dogs, plus they can be trained for various dog sports like obedience and agility. Early socialization and training is needed for this breed, however, though that is true for all dogs. Goldendoodles are fairly active dogs and they require a good deal of daily exercise to remain fit and in good health. These dogs also require mental stimulation to prevent them from getting bored and developing problem behaviors, plus they do not like being left alone for long periods of time. In terms of health, Goldendoodles are extremely variable depending on their genetics.

When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys.
