I have bred a lot of different types of Breeds through the years, but my favorite has been the Golden Retrievers and Goldendoodles. They are so loving just like children and love everybody. Ours are also very good guard dogs once the lights go out and the doors are locked. They are very intelligent, and learn very quickly. Our male was trained to be a therapy dog in a matter of a few months, and it has been a couple of years and he has not forgot any of it.
