Seriously, goldendoodles are the best dogs ever.
If you are looking for a dog that is low-to-no shedding, smart, and loving, you will want to consider goldendoodles as a breed of choice. These dogs are pricey, so plan on spending $2,000 or more. For me, my dogs were worth every single penny (and more)!
My first goldendoodle, McCartney, is a very SMART dog! She loves to work hard and please me during training. McCartney and I have THAT bond and we make a great team. We took three classes together: puppy manners, adolescent manners, and adult manners & Canine Good Citizen (CGC). She did not pass her CGC exam at the time, but she was still under a year old. McCartney is not a big people fan, except for her immediately family. We plan to retest for the CGC in the future.
Elliott, my second goldendoodle, is a very LOVING dog! He loves people, getting loved on, and cuddling when he is not busy being a puppy. Elliott is currently in adolescent manners class and does very well, but he enjoys drinking water a bit more than paying attention. I am hoping that Elliott will continue with classes and eventually become a certified therapy dog. He has a very calm demeanor and loves to get love!
While both of my goldendoodles have very different personalities, they both have the qualities of the breed that many people want: intelligence and friendliness. Besides personalities, goldendoodles shed VERY little! It is amazing to me that I can cuddle and pet them with virtually no hairs left behind on my clothing. This is very different from our basset hound, Storm. I love that I do not need to worry about dog hair. However, this does mean that goldendoodles need grooming every 6 weeks or so.
If you have a goldendoodle, I bet you agree that they are the best dogs ever! Do you have any reasons why goldendoodles are the best?
