People tend to think that indoor dogs must be small. Goldendoodle size has a pretty wide range, but standard Goldendoodle puppies can grow up to 70 lbs. at full maturity. So can Goldendoodles be indoor dogs, or are they too big?
The best indoor dogs aren’t always tiny lapdogs. What makes a dog a good indoor dog is their temperament, behavior, and their training rather than size alone. Goldendoodles make great indoor dogs!

Training Goldendoodles is relatively easy, which is one of the reasons they are great dogs for first time owners. Goldendoodles and Goldendoodle puppies are very smart, and they strive to please their owners. Having a dog that’s easy to train makes it easier to raise an indoor dog.
Goldendoodle exercise needs
Some dogs have too much energy to be indoor dogs. Dogs that get bored, impatient, or restless easily end up getting into trouble. Goldendoodles don’t fall under this category; exercise needs for Goldendoodles are about average. All dogs need to get out and play every day regardless of whether they are indoor or outdoor dogs!

They are very social animals. They are good with guests and meeting new people, and they are gentle around small children.

A Goldendoodle is going to be a product of his upbringing. If you love to stay in and watch movies in your apartment, your Goldendoodle puppy will learn to love lazy nights in, too. If you enjoy spending time being active outdoors, your Goldendoodle can keep stride.
