Good for first time owners

The Goldendoodle is a popular alternative to the Labradoodle. The coat type is variable in first-generation (F1) crosses, with shaggy, curly, or flat coats all possible.


Attractive to ...

Someone who wants a large, family-oriented, active companion that loves the water.

Not the best for ...

People who want a big teddy bear. Yes, some Goldendoodles can look like a large, impossibly cute stuffed toy, but this is an energetic, smart dog that needs lots of exercise, training and companionship.

Big, but will still fit in a small car.

Exercise Needs

High (Two hours or more)
Without sufficient mental and physical exercise will probably do the wall of death around the living room!


variable (progroom, smooth, jacket)


Doesn't moult much
But all dogs shed dander so if you're allergic, make sure you'll be ok

Life expectancy

13 years

Good first dog?
