Default Golden Doodle Puppies

Good, bad and the ugly for those that have experience with them. Are they all that hypoallergenic? I know no dog truly is, but just want to hear everyone's experiences with them.
Thanks

I have a cockapoo. Same idea, anything bred with a poodle won't shed. Friend has a golden doodle. The golden in him still digs up everything!

Mine sheds very little. Occasionally find a tuft of hair but nothing like dogs I've had in the past.

As far as the hypoallergenic, I believe it's just a case of the genes the particular dog gets. I 've had one for 7 years. I've had mixed breeds, and a border collie previously....this dog is hands down , the BEST temparment dog I've ever had. Does she shed? Yes, to a degree, enough to be a PIB but nothing like a lab or regular golden retriever would.

I honestly can't tell you one bad trait about the dog. They are smart, loyal, friendly....about the only downside is, they are a chick magnet and they get a ton of compliments....almost to the point that I wish I had an ugly dog so maybe I COULD get some compliments!

IMO, there's really no downside to the breed.

I am allergic to dog dander and dog saliva. Our daughter and SIL have a golden doodle and I have never had a problem being in their house including overnight stays.

Their dog is very loving and has been a great pal to their now 2 3/4 year old son.

They love to run and I love taking their dog (Callie) on runs while I hold her leash riding a bike.

The best of the Goldens and the best of the Poodles added together. I don't have one yet but I am getting one in the near future. I have several friends who have them and they all say it tis the best dog they have ever had.

Only experience with Golden Doodles/Labradoodles was when SIL took her two to stay with us at the lake.
They seem like great dogs, but hers were the most poorly trained dogs I have known.

Barked constantly and could not stay off the furniture.
Probably would have been decent dogs with a bit of training.

We've got three in our neighborhood here recently. One is crazy the other two seems straight in the head.

It is not that simple. I have a labradoodle that sheds almost as much as her yellow lab mother. The father was a standard black poodle.

From what I info that I have gathered, the shedding of labradoodles ends by the second generation. A second gen labradoodle is bred from a labradoodle and a poodle, rather than a lab and a poodle.

I know the thread is about goldendoodles, so forgive the slight derail. In case it matters, my labradoodle has been the smartest dog that I have owned or maybe even known. She was the runt of the litter, and is only about 30 lbs. We are very happy to have so much dog in such a small package.
Here is a close-up pic that shows her fur processing machine. No she doesn't sleep in the bed. She is a crate dog. However, our bed is the only furniture that she is allowed to jump on. Name:  1-20160126_123229.jpg

Very smart, athletic, high energy, loyal, great watch dog, loves to play games, can be a little needy at times. This guy (shown with his full winter coat looking for tennis balls in the snow) will easily clear a 4 foot high fence!

We have a male golden doodle. At least that's what we think it is. We trim the hair about every six to eight weeks with a Braun pet shaver and it does well. The dog is very well tempered though a bit skittish around loud noises and whoever comes to the door gets a good barking at. Smart, obedient and all Elmo ever wants out of life is to be loved. Very active so be prepared to give your dog some serious run around time.

We have one.

Awesome dog. Yes no shedding and no dander/allergies is wonderful. Ours hair is a lot curlier than the above ones. I think ours has more doodle than golden...

smartest dog i have ever owned or interacted with. Ours has a huge vocabulary and trains easily- like a dozen different tricks- lay down, roll over, shake, bang your dead, etc.

i dont bird hunt anymore but she points naturally and i could see them being a superb bird dog

can be told to put her toys away in the basket. can tell her to go with xx daughter and she will go

very very sweet and loving. plays nicely w the cat.

I've also heard that mutts tend to have less health issues than some pure bred dogs.

We have a standard poodle (I know you didn't ask about them) he is the smartest dog I've been around. We are not what most would consider to have a poodle but once they meet Bently they all want him and understand why we got one.I've always had heelers or ker dogs so most laugh when I tell them we have a poodle. Never thought I would say it but he acts like a person. Very good with the family and loves the water. He will wear you out playing ball. As soon as you go inside he chills out and not all over the place. We ended up with him for the facts they, poodles, don't shed. The second gen mixes have more characteristics of a poodle than the first cross. They are big dogs and require a lot of attention. Bently would rather you love on him than give him a treat when training. He has learned from things that were intentional and some that were just picked up along the way. And did I mention big? He's 50 pounds and all legs. My neighbor has a goldendoodle that is over 100 pounds. He's a first gen and sheds like crazy. Also very hyper.

I would look for a second gen as they will be everything you want from both breeds. If you have a pool good luck keeping them out of it.

I have friends with 2 of them. The male from a breeder is good as gold, the female from a pet shop is hell on wheels. Eats everything.

Family friends have a golden-doodle that is one of the worst behaved dogs I've been around. It's probably 4 years old and still wide-@$$ open all the time. More energy than my 18 month old lab. That being said, I don't think the owners have been committed to training the dog. I don't think it sheds very much though.

My brother has one and it's the best dog I have ever been around. I'm 100% convinced my next dog will be a golden-doodle. His doesn't shed nor causes allergic reactions. I'm sure a lot of his has to do with the breeder, but they definitely scored with the dog they got.

We have one and he's a great dog. Doesn't shed, very loyal, and smart. I feel sure we will end up with another one in the future.

My standard answer to folks that ask me what kind of dog is that... why it's a "designer mutt"


On a side note, they make great therapy dogs!

We have a standard golden doodle that is huge. We adopted him when he as 1 1/2 years old. He has gotten more of the poodle genes I think. He is smart and has a great, quirky personality. I would say he doesn't shed, but we know they all shed to some extent. He is an excellent pet.
