Loving, devoted, and energetic, Goldador mixed-breed dogs are prized for their good-natured trainability.
There are TOP 10 interesting facts about Goldador.
First introduced as a designer dog over a decade ago, the Goldador was bred for the purpose of creating a sensitive and tolerant working dog. This was a success, as this dog is now used as guide and assistance dogs, search and rescue dogs, therapy dogs, and police and bomb-sniffing dogs. But the Goldador has proved itself as a loyal and loving companion as well, valuable to both families and hunters.
Loving and loyal, the Goldador gets along with everyone – other animals and kids included. He loves to be around the people he loves, so you can’t leave him alone for long periods of time. The Goldador needs guidance and structure in his life, so once you’ve set up a routine, stick with it. Ideal for the first-time dog owner, the Goldador boasts a kind temperament and lots of patience – perfect for children.
The Goldador should inherit the Labrador Retriever’s smooth shorthaired double coat: a short, thick, straight topcoat and a soft, dense undercoat. This dog is usually yellow or shades of gold, but may exhibit red or black coloring, depending on the parents. His coat is very easy to groom – brush him once a week to remove dead hair.
Goldador dogs are easy to train and they are the eager-to-please dogs. The Goldador Dogs are created from an extensive line of dogs who work willingly and closely with people. This makes them an outstanding option for novice pet owners, except they get the structure, exercise, and constructive reinforcement they long for.
The Goldador dog breed is one among the designer dog breeds with a quite predictable size, as both blood relation breeds are big and similar in shape and size. The Goldador Dogs are capable of growing to a maximum height that ranges from 22 inches to 24 inches (55 cm to 60 cm) at the shoulders and they have a body weight between 60 lbs and 80 lbs (27.2 kg and 36.3).
Goldador dogs are active and they need a minimum of 30 minutes of daily exercise. Most of the Goldador Dog breeds take pleasure in retrieving games, in addition to swimming and hiking. Usually, they attain the physical maturity after 18 to 24 months of their creation and once they have attained maturity, they make outstanding jogging companions.
Goldadors are well-balanced, powerful looking dogs that boast an intelligent and ultra-kind expression in their eyes, breeds thanks to the fact both parent breeds are very similar in size, looks and personalities. Their heads are well proportioned in relation to their bodies and they have strong, deep, wide muzzles with a black nose. Their eyes are deep set and a dark brown with black rims being set well apart on a dog's face adding to their charming, intelligent look. Their ears are medium in size and set quite high, but falling down each side of a dog's head.
8) They Love Food
Finally, both the Golden Retriever and the Labrador love their food, and the Goldador is no exception! Begging, scavenging and picking up food (or what they perceive to be food) when out walking is a common Goldador trait if they are not firmly trained away from doing this, so the Goldador owner must be aware of this and keep an eye on what they eat, and their weight and activity levels.
9) Indoor Pet
While this dog breed is highly sociable and active in nature, it is happiest when it is around its human companions, so it should be kept indoors. Being the friendly pet companion that it naturally is, it can be lonely and depressed once it is left outside for extended periods of time.
The Goldador is a healthy dog, but some minor concerns may include hip and elbow joint arthritis and eye issues. If you are buying a puppy from a reputable breeder, make sure the parents have been tested by the Orthopedic Foundation For Animals for hip and elbow dysplasia.
