The inherited intelligence of the Goldendoodle, their eagerness to please combined with their love of learning make them irresistible.
I’m sure I am not the only one who believes her dogs are furry little geniuses – that’s part of our job as pet parents.
In the category of dogs bred for jobs that require decision making and concentration, Goldendoodles will astound you with how quickly they can learn.
Harley is that type of dog…

I recognize I should teach and train much more than I do. #workingonthat
I honestly believe I haven’t begun to tap into all that they can master.
