Things to Know about Goldendoodles:

They come in different sizes 

Goldendoodle puppies grow to be different sizes. They can range from little to average, to large, depending on the size of the Poodle parent. Knowing this Golden Retriever Poodle cross-origin can help you understand her approximate size as she grows from a doodle puppy to full grown Goldendoodle adult.

How to Adopt a Goldendoodle

Do your research 

Look for reputable doodle foster parents or consider adopting from a rescue organization.

Be prepared for the cost

Goldendoodles can be expensive, so make sure you have the financial means to provide for your new furry friend.

Consider your living situation

Goldendoodles thrive in homes with plenty of space to run and play, but they can adapt to smaller living spaces as well.

There is some debate about these dogs being apartment dogs. The female Goldendoodle puppy I walk seems to do well in an apartment, but she is at the dog park a few times a week. She also gets weekly play dates with other dogs. When I walk her, we walk until she seems tired. 

Being very realistic about your schedule, time to play with your dog, access to dog parks, and your comfort level walking your dog (not just letting it go out) are all considerations that should help guide your decision.

Potty Training a Goldendoodle Puppy

Your intelligent and sweet fur baby will melt your heart. But she still needs to be potty trained. Potty training a Goldendoodle can be a very frustrating and discouraging journey, but it does not have to be. 

Establish a routine

The first step in potty training a Goldendoodle puppy is establishing a routine. This means taking your puppy outside to use the bathroom at regular intervals, such as immediately after waking up, after meals, and before bedtime. It’s also important to watch for signs your puppy needs to go, such as sniffing around or circling.

When your puppy successfully goes potty outside, reward them with verbal praise and a small treat. Positive reinforcement is an effective way to reinforce good behavior and motivate your puppy to continue using the bathroom outside.

The Goldendoodle puppy I walked was continuously going potty in the stairwell before we would even step foot outside. I used a training treat to guide her down and out by putting it in front of her nose. When we would get out, she immediately went potty, and I would praise her verbally and give her a treat. It only took a few pieces of training, and she was instantly potty trained for walks.

Puppy pads for Goldendoodle puppies

For in-home training, puppy pads can be a helpful tool. Place the puppy pad in an area where your puppy has previously had accidents, and encourage them to use the pad by placing them on it frequently. When your puppy successfully uses the pad, provide verbal praise and a small treat.

In addition to puppy pads, a grass mat can be an excellent option for indoor or outdoor balconies. This provides a natural surface for your puppy to use the bathroom on and can help them learn to differentiate between inside and outside areas.

It’s important to remember that accidents will happen during the potty training process. When accidents occur, it’s essential to clean them up thoroughly to eliminate any lingering odors that may attract your puppy back to the same spot. Avoid punishing your puppy for accidents, as this can be confusing and counterproductive.

With patience, consistency, and positive reinforcement, potty training a Goldendoodle puppy can be a successful and rewarding experience for both you and your furry friend.

To sum up, Goldendoodle puppies are a wonderful crossbreed that perfectly combines the friendly and social nature of Golden Retrievers and the intelligence and hypoallergenic fur of Poodles. Their loving and affectionate personalities make them a great addition to any family or individual looking for a furry friend.
