Introduction

The Goldendoodle is a rather popular hybrid breed (also known as a "designer dog"). It is a cross between the Golden Retriever and a standard-sized Poodle. The Goldendoodle was developed in North America during the 1980s and 1990s. The Goldendoodle was first bred by Monica Dickens in 1969 in order for the hybrid to serve as a seeing-eye dogs for those with low vision and allergies. The Goldendoodle is hypoallergenic, and it generally inherits the intelligence of both parent breeds, so training the Goldendoodle to work with people is quite easy. In addition, many families are repeatedly choosing the Goldendoodle as a family pet.
