An added benefit is their hypo-allergenic qualities. Since this breed is mixed with a Poodle, shedding is very light to almost nonexistent. Goldendoodles love their family and socialize well with other pets. Taking them out for walks and to the park is beneficial both to release energy and encourage socialization. This breed thrives on human interaction so it probably will not do well in a family that cannot pay adequate attention to them. Without adequate attention they will become lonely and bored. Provided they receive lots of love, attention and exercise, the Goldendoodle will prove to be an excellent family pet! The Standard Goldendoodle was developed several years ago with the intention of providing a loving, intelligent pet for those with mild allergies. Once this breed was introduced, the general public fell in love with their cuddly look and amazing personality. Eventually, the Toy and Mini version were introduced for those who could not have a large breed dog. Today, the Goldendoodle remains one of the most popular breeds in the country.
