Many Goldendoodles are instinctively attracted to water and love to swim. Running, swimming, playing, walking or otherwise romping for several hours a day will keep a Goldendoodle mentally and physically fit. Because it is such a young “breed,” the behavioral traits of the Goldendoodle are not yet well characterized. Certainly, if left unattended in a crate or elsewhere for long periods of time, a Goldendoodle will become bored and lonely, and may become depressed and destructive. Dogs bought from puppy mills or backyard breeders who have no regard for the health, disposition and overall consistency of the “breed” may have serious temperament and behavioral problems, such as aggression, fear biting, timidity, separation anxiety, digging, destroying furniture and excessive barking, among others. People who are considering acquiring a Goldendoodle need to be sure that their lifestyle and schedule will permit them to spend lots of time with their new companion, so that behavioral problems can be prevented or at least nipped in the bud.

TGR provides a choice of limited or full registration puppy applications for breeders to provide to their puppy buyers. Breeders are welcome to use this pedigree service for one or all of the litters they produce. Many breeders are breeding Labradoodle to Labradoodle over successive generations, and trying to establish a new dog breed. This practice began with one man in Australia and the resulting dogs are usually referred to as Multigenerational Multigen or Australian Labradoodles. Australian Labradoodles also differ from early generation and Multigenerational Labradoodles in that they may also have other breeds in their ancestry. English and American Cocker Spaniel/Poodle crosses cockapoos, Irish Water Spaniels and Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers were used in some Australian Labradoodle lines. Curly Coated Retrievers were used too, but these lines were discontinued. Some breeders prefer to restrict breeding to early generation dogs bred from a Poodles and Labradors rather than from two Labradoodles to maximize genetic diversity and maintain hybid vigor as a way to avoid the inherited health problems that plague many recognized dog breeds. Throughout those early years Kate Shoeffel, a vet in NSW Australia began breeding first generation F1 Labradoodles from Labrador and Poodle matings. Her F1's were amongst the first Labradoodles to be exported from Australia to America.
