The Goldendoodle is a cross between the purebred Golden Retriever and the Standard Poodle. The breed is currently recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club and the International Canine Association as a Designer Dog Breed. The Goldendoodle originated in 1990’s in North America and Australia, although it was first bred in 1969. The idea was to create a breed with the great temperament of the family-friendly Golden Retriever along with the intelligence of the Poodle. The presence of the Poodle makes a highly trainable canine, and the Golden Retriever always aims to please.
Just be cautious with stern discipline tactics, as the Goldendoodle may have a hard time letting training failure roll off its back. Always train with a positive energy using lots of reinforcement with any breed. It was also thought that by crossing these breeds you would potentially create an effective solution for a guide/service dog for people with disabilities who also had allergies. While the Goldendoodle is somewhat hypo-allergenic, every allergic person should meet the puppy before adopting to ensure that they show no symptoms.
