Goldendoodles are consistently among the most popular breeds in the United States! Only about two decades old, this breed is a mix of two other top breeds - the Golden Retriever and the Poodle - and comes in many different colors and sizes. Goldendoodles have the intelligence of a Poodle and the loveable, playful personality of a Golden Retriever. They are sometimes considered hypoallergenic because they often don't shed much (or at all), but because they are a mix of two breeds, their coats can vary greatly. Goldendoodles are very trainable, and make wonderful, devoted family pets.
Goldendoodles make great family dogs, and both of their parent breeds are in the top 5 of highest ranking in intelligence.
Considered to be one of the newest of the "Doodles," or Poodle mixes which began in the 1990's, the idea behind the Goldendoodle was to create a large dog with the friendly, intelligent disposition of a Golden Retriever while maintaining a low-dander fur coat.
