Due to their highly social manner, the Goldendoodle is typically a quick student, learning multiple commands with proficiency making them perfect pets for first-time dog owners.

The earlier an owner exposes their pet to socializing and training the easier the process will be for both of you.  Given the intelligence of the Goldendoodle, combined with their exuberance for interaction and desire to please, they will easily grasp what you expect them to in training.

Taking a vigorous walk, playing, or a trip to the dog park, all of these are great ways to allow your dog to exercise off some of their energy in order to be able to focus on training.

Although a dog with lots of energy can learn something new, their mind may not be as engaged as required, for successful training. Remember the key for success is consistency in your training, by training every day, even if it is for a short period of time.

I'm a life long lover of dogs. Since I was 2 years old I've had retrievers, mixes, and currently, a Mini Goldendoodle named Lexie. I converted my wife into a dog lover and my two daughters are as well. Our doodle Lexie was the inspiration for this website because after we got her everyone wanted to know more. There is a ton of information on the web, but I feel most of it was not from the perspective of a Goldendoodle owner.
