goldendoodle temperament problems

Running, swimming, playing, walking or otherwise romping for several hours a day will keep a Goldendoodle mentally and physically fit. Because it is such a young “breed,” the behavioral traits of the Goldendoodle are not yet well characterized. Certainly, if left unattended in a crate or elsewhere for long periods of time, a Goldendoodle will become bored and lonely, and may become depressed and destructive. Dogs bought from puppy mills or backyard breeders who have no regard for the health, disposition and overall consistency of the “breed” may have serious temperament and behavioral problems, such as aggression, fear biting, timidity, separation anxiety, digging, destroying furniture and excessive barking, among others. People who are considering acquiring a Goldendoodle need to be sure that their lifestyle and schedule will permit them to spend lots of time with their new companion, so that behavioral problems can be prevented or at least nipped in the bud. They also should be sure to get their Goldendoodle from a reputable breeder. With these few thoughts in mind, the Goldendoodle is an excellent choice for someone who wants a mid sized, fluffy, cheerful canine companion that is not too high maintenance but still is energetic enough to share an active lifestyle. In the past, it was thought that a curly F1b Goldendoodle 75% Poodle and 25% Golden Retriever was needed for allergy sufferers in order to get a low to no shed dog. This is no longer the case. Thanks to the “shedding test”, breeders can now carefully breed their parents by knowing how what their shed score is, making it possible to get the same low to no shed results in straight, wavy, or curly multigenerational Goldendoodles. The multigenerational Goldendoodle typically incorporates more Golden Retriever back into the mix increasing the hybrid vigor of the offspring and increases the chances of the offspring have more Golden Retriever traits than an F1b but with little to no shedding like an F1b.
