These breeders have the full resources of our club, our foundation and our membership at their disposal. The Golden Retriever Club of America also works with the Morris Animal Foundation and The Canine Health Foundation in providing support and samples for vital research in genetics and health. We have never seen a grant application for the health of the Golden doodle. We have never seen a donation by any Doodle organization to the betterment of canine health, only undocumented claims that their dogs have no health problems. We have never seen anyone breeding doodles of any kind talk about the basic genetic testing for both the Golden and the Poodle. Instead we only hear of these dogs showing up in rescue because the promises of lack of shedding and allergies and stable temperament remain unfulfilled.

Early socialization and training is needed for this breed, however, though that is true for all dogs. Goldendoodles are fairly active dogs and they require a good deal of daily exercise to remain fit and in good health. These dogs also require mental stimulation to prevent them from getting bored and developing problem behaviors, plus they do not like being left alone for long periods of time. In terms of health, Goldendoodles are extremely variable depending on their genetics. Both Golden Retriever and Standard Poodles are at risk for certain conditions like hip dysplasia and gastric dilation volvulus which could increase your Goldendoodle’s susceptibility to these conditions. Other problems your Goldendoodle may be at risk for developing could include Addison’s disease, epilepsy, allergies, skin problems, and hypothyroidism.
