Is being #2 something to celebrate? In this case, it is. In 2021, Goldendoodles were the third most popular dog breed in the United States. For 2022, they’ve moved up to #2.
Who’s ahead of the Goldendoodle? The Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog breed for this year. The Golden Retriever is next on the list, right after the Goldendoodle, in third place.
This makes sense. The Goldendoodle is a “designer dog” mix of Golden Retriever and Poodle. This combination gives you the best of both worlds: the whip-smart poodle with low shedding and and beautiful coat, plus the affectionate and friendly Golden Retriever.
It’s good to be popular
The Goldendoodle is justly popular. This is a friendly, sociable dog that makes a great family pet. With low shedding, the Goldendoodle is a good choice for families coping with allergies, and the fact that the Goldendoodle comes in several sizes makes this dog a good choice for all kinds of households, from big families to empty nesters or apartment dwellers.
Goldendoodles have a medium level of energy — enough to be fun to play with, but not enough to be nervous or demanding. Your Goldendoodle will enjoy cuddling on the couch or relaxing on the porch just as much as going for a hike or a swim.
Goldendoodles are affectionate dogs, too, who become very attached to their people.
These are the qualities that make the Goldebndoodle so popular.
They’re cute, too.
