“Companion dog” is basically a fancy name for a family pet. Companion dogs aren’t trained to work or to carry out a task; their sole purpose is to provide companionship for their family. While you can train Goldendoodles to work or perform specific tasks, they are one of the best companion dogs.
Here’s a look at some of the Goldendoodle traits that make them a great companion dog breed.
Goldendoodles have a sweet and loving nature. This isn’t a quality you want in a guard dog, but it makes for a wonderful family pet.
Easy to train
Even companion dogs need to learn basic commands and obedience training. Doodles are fast learners and eager to please, which makes them easy to train. Having an intelligent, trainable dog is good for first time dog owners.
Doodles are whip smart, but they also have a high level of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the awareness of how others feel and the ability to respond appropriately.
Goldendoodles know how to read the room. If you’re having a bad day, they will show you love and attention. If you’re in a celebratory mood, they will join in the fun.
A properly socialized Goldendoodle doesn’t know the word “stranger” — everyone is a friend. Goldendoodles are great with children, new people, and other pets.
Doodles love meeting new people and making new friends, which is great because these beautiful dogs get a lot of attention!
While Goldendoodles are friendly and sociable, they are dedicated to their family. When a Goldendoodle finds her forever home, she truly becomes a member of the family.
Most Goldendoodles inherit a non-shedding or low-shedding coat. This is great for people with pet allergies, and it also helps keep the home tidy.
Active — not overactive
Goldendoodles have average exercise needs. They are energetic enough to play with the family, or join you for your evening stroll, but you don’t have to run them several miles a day. Plan for about 30 minutes of active time each day with your Doodle.
The average Goldendoodle lives a long, healthy life. Most Standard Goldendoodles live between 10 and 15 years. This is ample time to make fond memories with your lovable pet!
Looks aren’t everything, but they’re a nice bonus when it comes to companion dogs. There aren’t many dogs that are cuter than Goldendoodles!
