Guide to Training Goldendoodles

November 29, 2019

The Goldendoodle was first bred in the late 1960s, though the breed did not become popular until the 1990s. This cross between a Golden Retriever and Standard Poodle was an attempt to create a service dog that would be suitable for people with allergies. The amazing combination created a curly or wavy coated, long-legged, golden-colored dog with a good temperament, and, generally speaking, doesn’t shed or give off dander- which is the biggest cause of allergies. The Golden Retriever isn’t the only breed to be crossed with the Poodle, the Labrador also has this distinction, creating the Labradoodle.

Training a Goldendoodle

Goldendoodles are typically very friendly. They tend to love everyone they meet and want to greet or play with everyone they encounter. This can sometimes lead to a dog that has difficulty focusing. Goldendoodles tend to be higher on the energy spectrum, so it’s important to allow them to run and play to release energy before training sessions.

Goldendoodles are comprised of two working dog breeds so chances are your Doodle will enjoy the time spent training. Doodles of all kinds tend to do really well with crate training and potty train fast- as long as you are consistent. Even the smartest breeds need consistency to know what to do, so be sure you are training on a schedule, the same way each time. Don’t be surprised if you’re young golden learn the basics early- sit, down, and stay with ease.

Due to their high energy, it is not uncommon for owners to feel frustrated with training a Goldendoodle. Unintentional training is real and can be a big problem when we let any negative emotions into training. Dogs are such agreeable creatures that it’s easy to forget that they are much more in tune with nonverbal cues than we are because they are masters in nonverbal communication! Not only that, they can smell changes in our body so your Doodle knows if you’re unhappy. Make training fun, and if you feel yourself getting exhausted or frustrated try again another day!
