These dogs are known just as much for their friendly personalities as for their beautiful gold colored coats. The Golden Retriever was originally developed as a gun dog to retrieve downed waterfowl over land and water. The breed was developed in Scotland during the mid 1900s when waterfowl hunting was an incredibly popular sport for the Scottish Elite. At the time, existing retrievers were not skilled in retrieving over both land and water so they were crossed with the best water spaniels to create the breed that is now known as the Golden Retriever. The breed was first accepted by The Kennel Club in England in 1903 but it didn’t make its way to the U. S. but Australia. For the most part anything bred in the U. S. is not going to be considered a breed by any means. They definitely wasted their money, and like you said could have gone to a shelter and gotten the same thing for a better purpose.

Many Goldendoodles are instinctively attracted to water and love to swim. 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.
