Goldendoodles are a purpose bred hybrid of a Poodle and a Golden Retriever. They are bred for a variety of reasons including companion animals, emotional support dogs and for their low shedding, low allergen traits. A Goldendoodle can have any percentage of both breeds depending on the generation and inherited genetics. They are well known for their intelligence, people oriented nature and fun loving personalities. Goldendoodles get their low shedding and low allergen traits from the poodle genetics. Because of this they do require special grooming needs. This is an important thing to factor into the care and cost requirements of owning a Goldendoodle. Contrary to popular belief a Goldendoodle is not necessarily hypoallergenic and we do not claim they will be. Allergens can vary widely from person to person but typically a person that suffers from an allergy to dogs can tolerate Goldendoodles more. They do not shed like a typical dog but will loose hair similar to a person. If you would like to learn more about Goldendoodles please click below.
