A Groodle is a hybrid breed which is a mix of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. Their fur can be curly or straight and, like most dogs with poodle in the mix, they hardly shed or smell.
Groodles are easy to groom and look after, and have the nature of a Golden Retriever - loving, friendly with everybody and always happy. This, combined with the intelligence of the poodle, makes them very fine family dogs.
Groodles need regular exercise but they will forgive you if some days it turns out to be just a shorter walk. What they do need is lots of mental stimulation, and they thrive on being included in all your daily activities - even if it means taking them with you when you go out for a coffee or watch the kids play soccer. Groodles are quite dependent on their owners and therefore don't enjoy being left behind. Due to their size, this isn't always possible.
The Groodle's willingness to please paired with a high level of intelligence, makes this an easy to train dog that loves to obey your commands. With the right training, it is easy to make your Groodle a very well behaved family companion.
