The Goldendoodle is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. The cross between these two parent breeds produce dogs that are extremely social, outgoing, and affectionate. They are intelligent and have a great desire to please which makes them very easy to train. They are non-aggressive, sensitive and gentle natured dogs that thrive on human companionship. The Goldendoodle’s easy going temperament along with it’s low to non-shedding coat makes the it the perfect addition to any family!
