Personality Traits of Goldendoodles
The Teddy Bear Goldendoodle is an affectionate and
gentle dog that has gained popularity since they were first
developed in the 1990s. Goldendoodles are usually very social
and get along well with everyone. They don't generally do well in any
type of guarding or watchdog role and should not be used for that
purpose. With adequate exercise, they do well
in most environments. Goldendoodles do best when housed within
a home environment as they thrive when they are in the company of their
families. Goldendoodles are very versatile working dogs.
They have achieved success as guide dogs, service dogs,
therapy dogs, and sniffer dogs (one study tested their success as
sniffing out peanuts in foods for owners with
nut allergies). Goldendoodles have also done well in
agility. Goldendoodles can be very easy to train and
are a good match for first-time or timid owners.
They're not known to have any aggressive
traits, but they do need proper socialization to avoid any
shyness or fearfulness. Goldendoodles also need daily contact
with their owners: they will suffer from separation anxiety
if they are left alone for too long.
