This is a very active dog who is smart and busy and will need training if you want any hopes of a quiet life! They are a joy to train as both the breeds are intelligent and love working with their owner, but they will learn bad habits as quickly as good ones so reward-based training should start early and be ongoing.
They include hip dysplasia, a skin disease called sebaceous adenitis, a heart condition called subvalvular aortic stenosis, Addison's disease, and eye diseases such as progressive retinal atrophy, cataracts and glaucoma.
Intelligent, energetic, friendly and trainable
These are high-energy dogs that are likely to need around two hours of exercise per day. As they are also very intelligent, they will probably want to play and be engaged at home as well as out on walks.
A Goldendoodle, also known as the Groodle (in Australia), is bred from a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. First widely bred in 1990s, the crossbreed is bred in three different size varieties corresponding to the size variety of Poodle used as a parent.
