Shopping for Goldendoodle Gifts? A Goldendoodle is a cross-breed/hybrid dog obtained by breeding a golden
retriever with a poodle. The name (which alters "poodle" to "doodle" in reference to the Labradoodle)
was coined in 1992. The goldendoodle is usually bred to be a family companion dog. It may suit families
with dog allergies, if the puppy has inherited hair characteristics of its poodle parent.
A person may select a goldendoodle because he or she loves the golden retriever temperament,
but would prefer a dog that sheds less hair.
Although not all goldendoodles exhibit the non-shedding coat type of the standard poodle, most goldendoodles do have a low to non-shedding coat.
The goldendoodle is usually tolerable for people with allergies.
