Goldendoodle

Nala (previously named Zabrina) is a great gift from God. She is feisty and playful. She fits in perfectly. She is a quick learner and our hope is to have her trained as a therapy dog (emotional support dog). Kid friendly and lives people.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Responsive

Goldendoodles are a hybrid dog breed resulting from crossing the Golden Retriever and the Poodle. They range from small to large depending on the variant of the dogs that breeders cross.

Poodles and Golden Retrievers are intelligent and energetic, leading to equally smart Goldendoodle pups. Goldendoodles are playful and affectionate. They are perfect for families since they get along with kids and other pets in the house.

Goldendoodles can be easy to train, making them an excellent choice for first-time dog owners. They require socialization and exposure to different sights and sounds early in life to ensure the best behavior.

Because they are a highly social breed, they need daily contact with their owners. Also, they tend to suffer from separation anxiety and don’t like being left alone for too long.

Goldendoodles are active dogs, so they need daily walks and lots of time outdoors. They love water and having extra companions to play with, both dog and human.

Goldendoodles have a medium coat length with a curly texture. They shed very little, if at all, but they still need regular grooming like all poodles.  They often come in their iconic golden coat, but can be found in red and black as well.

The typical lifespan for a Goldendoodle is 10 to 15 years. The average weight for Goldendoodles is between 50 to 90 pounds.

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
