It has been 52 years since the Goldendoodle was first bred by Monica Dickens in 1969 and the popularity of the dog is still to hit global status. For now, it is adored in Australia and the United States. The Goldendoodle is a mix of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle and is a great dog for first-time dog owners or for those who are quite timid of dogs. Since the breed is not as popular as the standard Golden Retriever or Poodle, this article serves to provide a number of the reasons why Goldendoodles are amazing pets for the family.
They Keep You Active
A Goldendoodle is an intelligent dog that is easy to train, and needs to socialize in order for it to thrive. As a result, this crossbreed calls for an average of 20 to about 30 minutes of exercise on a daily basis. This can be achieved by taking your “Doodle” on a walk with your family, or playing active games like fetch in the park, etc. They are great companions whenever you and your family go camping or on hikes and they were originally bred to be guide dogs, so with proper training your Goldendoodle will certainly keep the family from wandering and getting lost. If you are unable to take your beloved dog on a run, simply train your dog to exercise on a treadmill if you have one. Yes, a treadmill! It will keep them fit and save you and your family time when you are busy.
They Create Fewer Allergic Responses
It has been proven that out of a group of 10 young children, at least 1 will develop eczema. It is a condition that tends to improve by the time a kid is 5 or 6 years of age. To make the heavy load of parenting a tad lighter, having a Goldendoodle will not be as harmful to children who struggle with allergies compared to other dogs. This is because Goldendoodles shed less and as a result, hardly any dandruff flakes or hair of the dog will stir up allergic reactions in children and adults alike. So, you can have your young ones and yourself – if you suffer from allergies – be able to play and snuggle with your dog with little to no problems.
They Are Great with Kids
The reasons for adopting a canine are many. Some people take one into their lives for medical reasons and they need a guide dog. Some may adopt one to be a guard dog and defend the home from unwanted visitors. Others simply need a companion. Dogs have the ability to bring joy into the lives of their owners. When a toddler grows up with a dog, they get to learn early on how to be responsible and care for others. This is a result of kids learning to take the dog on walks, making sure the family pet is fed and washed and giving it attention when it calls for it. This love is reciprocated because Goldendoodles are gentle in nature and love to cuddle, so children will not feel unwanted by their furry friends, they will have fun times and long-lasting memories.
With a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, families have the option of keeping the beautiful memories of their Goldendoodle through cremation after they lose their furry family member. Cremation is getting more and more popular with both pets and humans, so it is an avenue that is accessible for your family.
Goldendoodles are amazing pets. They are more than an animal, but a true friend and a true companion. They come with so many advantages, with one of the biggest ones being that they are absolutely adorable and have beautiful fur! Having one as a pet will bring your family and the Doodle great joy.
