Labradors were bred in Canada, to help fishermen and hunters retrieve their catches. They needed a friendly dog that loved to go fetching and also enjoyed being in the water.

The Labrador was sent over to England in the 1800s by some English noblemen who had discovered the breed while visiting Canada. Those breeds began the line that is now the English Labrador Retriever, bred more for show, companionship, and conformation.

The English Labrador is shorter, stockier, thicker necked and more mellow than their American cousins. we have an article on the differences between the American Labrador VS, the English Labrador.

All that you need to do to them is give them a loving home with lots of exercise, training, love, and attention! The Golden Retriever Lab mix is great with new dog owners Goldadors are not like the territorial Rottweiler. Golden Retriever Labrador Mix are instead super easy to train if you put in the time to do so when they are a puppy.

What is the exercise and socialization needs of the Goldador?

Exercising your Goldador is super important! Not only is the dog an extremely active but also one that is super smart. This means they can put their brainpower to either great usage or Goldadors can become destructive and uncooperative.

The Goldadors need a full 30 to 45 minutes of strenuous exercise their exercise cannot be a quick up and down the driveway, and a few tosses of the ball. But rather up and down and all around the neighborhood, if you want a peaceful and well-exercised Goldador.

Otherwise you will have a Goldador that is all over the place, happy one second and territorial the next second.

Socialization

Socialization is a must for any dog, and whether he is big or small, it is essentially teaching them good manners. So take your Goldador out for a spin in the city, let him/her hear different sounds, smells, people and animals.

One move you should not make is taking your puppy to the dog park the dogs in the dog park can be rude and can scar your puppy. The dog park can also be a carrier of disease and germ to your unvaccinated puppy.

You can take your puppy to classes; this knocks out two birds with one stone. You are getting your puppy to meet with other puppies, and you are getting your Goldador expertly trained.

Goldadors training and temperament

Training is also essential, the Goldador is a brilliant puppy, so training he/she will be easy if you consistently train her from the beginning.

A well-trained dog is very easy to spot! And for that matter so is an untrained dog, a well-trained dog is much easier to control. While the untrained dog is all over the place with the master holding on for dear life.

Training starts whenever you get home with your puppy. Whenever you have free time, train, train, train your puppy.

The puppy’s mind is like a sponge, the more commands you put into that brain. The better trained the Labrador Golden Retriever is.

When training the puppy do not give up on the command, but rather keep repeating the command. Until the puppy does what you are asking him/her to do then praise the puppy with a treat, and or a few words of praise.

Temperament

The temperament of the Labrador Golden Retriever mix is:

  • Calm
  • Relaxed
  • Good-natured
  • Loving
  • Playful
  • Quick learner
  • Energetic

They do not have one mean bone in their body, so for that reason, they would not make for a very great guard dog. Though they will sound the dog alarm whenever someone comes to the door or property. But other than that they love all humans and all animals if socialized well when they were puppies.

Grooming

The Labrador Golden Retriever mix needs a lot of grooming especially during the spring and fall times when they are replacing their winter coats and summer coats. There will be a lot of hair on everything during that time of year, so you will differently need to brush them several times a day during that period of time.

During the summer and winter their shedding will slow down from the flood of hair to a manageable amount of shedding. So you could go at least a few day’s to a week before needing to brush them again.

Conclusion

The Goldador has almost no drawbacks besides the constant shedding, and they are super easy to train and therefore make great pets for first-time dog owners!
