WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
First-generation backcross (F1B) Goldendoodles come from first-generation Goldendoodles (Mack) bred to purebred Poodles (Macy & Maddie). This cross increases the chance that the puppies will have more of the desirable “Poodle-like” traits, including low-to-no-shedding coats that cause fewer flare-ups in people with allergies aka hypoallergenic.
The average Goldendoodle life expectancy is 12 to 15 years.
Temperament & Personality
The Goldendoodle dog breed has a personality and temperament that is intelligent, cheerful, trustworthy, gentle, affectionate, and highly trainable. Due to their outgoing personalities, Goldendoodles also make excellent companions for people with disabilities. Goldendoodles of whatever generation are usually friends of everyone and strangers to no one, which makes them an ideal choice as a family dog. Goldendoodles get along famously with kids, strangers and other companion animals such as cats.
Goldendoodles are active and highly energetic dogs that need space to run, play, and exercise. Many Goldendoodles are instinctively attracted to water and love to swim!
Most Goldendoodles are smart and easy to train. They are eager, willing learners that respond best to positive reinforcement and gentleness. Harsh, loud corrections or training by punishment are not helpful when working with these (or most other) dogs.
Goldendoodles are fairly easy keepers. Because Goldendoodles don’t shed profusely, they do need to be brushed regularly to remove dead and dying hair and prevent matting. A bath every few months can help keep their skin and coat in good condition, especially when they are groomed regularly between baths. It is a good idea to trim the hair that grows over their eyes.
