Goldendoodle facts. Goldendoodle facts for dummies We’ve got you covered with the most thorough guide to goldendoodle facts ever written.
There’s so much information out there, and it gets overwhelming very quickly.
We wanted to solve the problem of goldendoodle facts, which is that we had gathered a lot of information on goldendoodles, but we didn’t know where to put it.
So we made our own reference library at Dogster, so that you can find out anything you need to know about your favorite breed at a glance.

What is a Goldendoodle?
Most people think of dogs as cute and cuddly, but as a breed of dog, they’ve been around for a long time. They have been selectively bred to thrive in specific environments and have a variety of characters — including the ability to speak. One example is the “goldendoodle”, which is a cross between the golden retriever and the poodle. While there is nothing particularly special about these two breeds, it turns out that their appearance can be used in marketing. While some of these breeds are popular with children (the poodle or pug), others aren’t (the Labrador or Golden Retriever). So can using your brand to market your product?
For example, take the goldendoodle. The golden retriever/poodle mix has been shown to be very popular with children—and this character has brought about its own marketing opportunities. Some brands have found ways to use their characters in marketing campaigns and other similar products (for example: Hershey’s Gold Fudge). Other brands have made great use of their character (for example: Tickle Me Elmo). This is likely because people are interested in what you do — not just what you look like — so they will often notice your unique characteristics first.
Personality of a Goldendoodle
A few months ago, a friend emailed me with a link to a goldendoodle fact sheet. It was interesting and a little bit sad:
A goldendoodle is an affectionate name for a dog that is neither purebred nor designer (but look like both). In the 1980s, people began to notice that the word “doodle” had an almost identical sound to “dog” but no meaning in itself. So they added the suffix “-do-“ which was pronounced as “dot-do-“. The pet name became so popular that it was used in place of ‘dog’.
At first, this seemed like it was just a happy coincidence. But then I noticed that there were some small differences in the pronunciation of the two words: one could sound more like ‘dog’ and the other more like ‘doo-doodle’ (though no where near as close as you can get using spell check).
I asked around on Twitter and this was confirmed by several goldendoodles who were not aware of this connection, but said they liked their names to sound alike because it made them feel good about themselves.
And so we went into our own search for another term for what we now know as “goldendoodle”. We looked through all of our old blogs and found nothing but one word: “Doodles.”
This hit home. This time when I look back at my blog posts from five years ago, I realize how much I have changed since then – how much I have changed my view on things and my values, how much I have learned since then…and how far we still have left to go before we reach full market fit. This is not something we can do overnight or even 10 years down the line; but it is something we can do now! And so today, when I look at my past blog posts, I see myself ten years ago; at twenty years ago; at thirty years ago! And yet somehow still connected with these same core values and mission as if they were yesterday’s news!
We’re not quite there yet…but we are getting closer every day! And someday soon, maybe next week or next month or next year or whenever you think it will be…maybe you will be there too!

Health of a Goldendoodle
In the past few years I’ve had the chance to test out a few goldendoodle companions — dogs that are bred for intelligence and appearance, but which offer a great deal of health benefits as well. You can find their information here: https://www.thegoldendoodles.com/health-of-a-goldendoodle/
I have to say that I think they are probably in their time of peak health, but you should still not let them go too long without a checkup.
As with most things in life, prevention is better than cure.
Physical Traits of a Goldendoodle
This is the first of many posts on goldendoodles. In a nutshell, a goldendoodle is a breed of dog that typically has a reddish fur (or even red-brown, but it can have more of an orange color), a long face, and large ears. Goldendoodles are considered to be one of the most intelligent breeds of dogs.
Training Your Goldendoodle
Yes, you can have a goldendoodle. The dog breed is gaining popularity in the last few years, and it is something that many people find fun and interesting to watch. Their funny faces and little quirks are captivating to watch. But their distinctive nature makes them an excellent choice for training purposes. This article covers some of the different kinds of training that can be done with a goldendoodle, as well as the benefits of doing so.
There are several different types of training you can do with your goldendoodle:
• Cognitive: teaching your dog new tricks and commands (e.g., fetching, hiding)
• Social: teaching your dog how to behave around other people (e.g., sit, shake hands)
• Emotional: teaching your dog what it means to be happy or sad (e.g., “Sit” or “Be Good”). This is often done through trickery (showing the dog what will happen if he does this action) or by using positive reinforcement (e.g., “I love you”).
You will find much information about these things on the Internet — but this article should help you understand some of the basic concepts at a very basic level so you can use them effectively in your everyday life with your goldendoodle!
Canine Language of a Goldendoodle
Goldendoodle facts (also known as dog facts) are various dog-related details and trivia. The info is often compiled by breeders and breed clubs, but also includes information provided by owners of the dogs. It’s a great source of information for people interested in their dogs, which is useful if you want to learn more about your dog or want to know what kind of food your dog likes, or why your dog has such and such a look — but mostly it’s entertaining.
There are two main kinds of information: scientific, which deals with the scientific aspects of the breed (what makes them different from other dogs), and “canine language” (in layman’s terms: what makes them act like dogs).
One example of a scientific fact is that “goldendoodles are very intelligent about word-list learning.” This can be used in scenarios where you need to teach a goldendoodle to let you know if he has heard something, for example. Another example: “a goldendoodle will detect someone he knows before he knows himself!” This is related to the fact that goldendoodles have been observed looking at people they know who are walking past them (and vice versa).
Another kind of fact is how a goldendoodle responds to being touched or handled in certain ways — it all depends on personality-wise; some enjoy being petted, others do not. Any kind of touch will make them react differently, so don’t be surprised if your golden does not react well to you touching his nose when he wants attention…
The importance of scientific facts varies widely across breeds and generations; it depends on whether they are being bred for a purpose or simply for show purposes. By far most goldendoodles are bred at least partially for show purposes, with some breeds reaching the level of elite performance within just a few generations (the Goldendoodle Club Champ line is one such breed).
What does all this mean? One word: “intelligence!” And an impressive one at that. In my opinion — granted I have never been able to prove this scientifically yet — there really isn’t any other breed with better intelligence than the Goldendoodle. They may lose out on looks in comparison to the Golden Retriever though; we could debate this further until we die (but I think I will die first), but I believe ours suffers
It’s been a long road, but I have been able to get some very timely and useful information out there. I hope this has been helpful to you. I had a lot of fun writing it, and if you have any questions, comments or corrections, please leave them in the comments below.
A few notes about the content:
• I wrote this in 2013 for a new startup called Goldendoodle that was just starting out, so I’m not sure what the most current state of things is.
• There are two versions of this document: one with the current version of GoldenDoodle included, and one without it because using it as an archive would have made it really hard to find (and I don’t intend to do that).
• This post is not meant to be a tutorial on how to build your own product; there are plenty of those out there. It is intended instead as an overview of what goes into getting your product up on a platform such as Apple’s App Store or Google Play; and a guide to how we think about content marketing from both ends (you can find my previous posts here).
