There’s no doubt that Goldendoodles are adorable, but are Goldendoodles smart? Yes! Goldendoodles combine beauty and brains into one cuddly and fun-loving package.
It runs in the family
A Goldendoodle puppy has Golden Retriever and Poodle lineage. You’ll find both Poodles and Golden Retrievers included in almost any list of smartest dogs.
While all Goldendoodles are part Golden Retriever and part Poodle, the amount of each dog breed in a Goldendoodle depends on the generation. However, it doesn’t matter whether you have an F1b Goldendoodle, an F2 Goldendoodle, or a multigenerational Goldendoodle, all Goldendoodles are smart.
The Poodle is widely considered one of the smartest dog breeds on the planet. Poodles were originally bred as water dogs to assist with duck hunting. Because of their intelligence Poodles are easily trained, and they learn commands quickly. They are also known for their hypoallergenic coats.
Like the Poodle, Golden Retrievers are very intelligent and were bred as hunting dogs. They are eager to please and great at intuiting human emotion. They are often used as therapy dogs, service dogs, and for search-and-rescue.
The Goldendoodle combines the best features of these two highly intelligent dog breeds. Goldendoodles are very smart, friendly, sociable, trainable, loyal, loving, and they have thick, non-shedding or low-shedding, coats.
