Goldendoodle/Mini Goldendoodle

The Goldendoodle is a mix between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle.  They can come in different sizes depending upon which size Poodle is used in the breeding process.  Standard Goldendoodles are approximately 45 – 75 1bs, and 20 – 24 inches tall.  Goldendoodles sired by mini or toy poodles are approximately 25 – 45 1bs, and 13 – 21 inches tall.  Since the Goldendoodle comes from two parent breeds that adore people, you can expect that you will get this inherited trait in the Goldendoodle as well.  These are highly sociable and loyal dogs that require lots of love and affection.  They delight at being the center of attention, and thrive when they get it!  They do not do well if left alone for long periods of time, or left outside for the majority of their days.  They are exceptionally intelligent and quite easily trained.  Their intelligence will often entertain you as they figure out ways to get your attention such as steeling household items just to make you chase them.  Any mischievous or naughty behavior can quickly be corrected with obedience training where they will shine as the smartest student in their class.  They have a wonderfully well-balanced temperament that makes them perfect for just about anybody looking for a fun-loving, easy going, easy to train, and adorable dog.  Their good natured qualities coupled with the fact that they love being around children make them a fantastic family dog.  They fare well with even the smallest of children, seeming to understand they should be extra gentle and careful around them.  Getting along with other animals in the household does not seem to be an issue with the Goldendoodle.  They tend to stay playful and energetic well into adulthood so owners should be prepared to exercise their Goldendoodle daily.

When considering the nature of the Goldendoodle, you must consider the characteristics of both the Golden Retriever and the Poodle separately in order to determine the characteristics the Goldendoodle may exhibit.

Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever is rated high on the list of most popular family dogs, and for good reason.  This breed is highly intelligent, very social, sweet, gentle, well-mannered, and exceptionally friendly.  They crave attention and prefer to be around you at all times which means they definitely work best for someone who is willing to dedicate their time to them and not leave them alone for long periods of time.  They are wonderful with children as well as with other dogs, cats and livestock.  They are very patient and calm, and display a willingness to learn which makes them excellent as guide dogs, and search and rescue dogs.  They are a very confident and proud breed and learn tricks and obedience very easily.


The Poodle comes in three different sizes, toy (10” and under, 6-9 1bs.), miniature (10-15”, 15-17 1bs.), and standard (over 15”, 45-70 1bs.).  The Poodle has been cited as being the 2nd most intelligent breed of dog.  Their exceptional intelligence, paired with the fact that they are generally very eager to please, empowers them to excel in obedience training.  They learn quickly and will delight in showing off their new tricks.  Poodles are generally very easy to housebreak.  They are loyal and devoted companions, extremely people-oriented, and crave lots of love and attention.  They are typically calm, good natured, with a sweet temperament, and the ability to bond with all members of their human family.  The standard poodle, in particular, does extremely well in families with young children, while the toy and miniatures fair better with older children.  Poodles do not do well in households where they will be left alone for long periods of time, left outside, or bound to one room of the house.  Poodles have an extremely low-shedding, dense coat which is either curly or corded and should be groomed every 6 – 8 weeks to prevent mats and tangles.  If you should so decide, their coat can also be kept short for low-maintenance.  Poodles come in a variety of colors such as silver, cream, gray, blue, black, white, apricot, red, caf-au-lait, brown, and parti-colored.  The Poodle is oftentimes referred to as the hypo-allergenic dog.  But, while there truly is no such thing as a completely hypo-allergenic dog, they are unquestionably more compatible with allergic persons than other breeds.   Being classified as highly energetic, the poodle, like most dogs, will appreciate daily exercise, such as a walk, play session, or a run at the dog park.
