Mambo was actually purchased for my Wife, Terry. The idea with Mambo was Terry would take her to all her training classes, as that would have Mambo respond to Her commands. From the very beginning we had intended to have Terry be a Therapy Dog handler with Mambo. We let Kelli know this and it factored into her choosing Mambo for us. Mambo started training at only 12 weeks old, starting with basic puppy class. As you will read with all the doodles who start young, they stand out, head and shoulders above other breeds at puppy class, and at more advanced classes as well. Mambo had to take time off from about 8 months old to about a year and a half old because my Mom had moved in with us and was in dire need, not only for help, but to be watched over. Way before Mambo went to formal Therapy Dog classes, she was caring for my Mom. There was one very touching moment, where it all seemed to 'click' for Mambo. My Mom was trying to get out of a chair. I would have of course helped her, but for as long as possible, she wanted to be in charge of her own mobility.

However, Goldendoodle aficionados are making concerted efforts to standardize their type and temperament so that eventually they will be fully accepted by purebred dog registries. The Goldendoodle Association of North America GANA claims to be the only organization dedicated to creating and maintaining a reliable registry for the Goldendoodle. Its stated mission is to promote and guide the development of the Goldendoodle to achieve a consistent standard for the “breed” in terms of coat, type, health and temperament. These efforts are opposed by the American parent clubs of the Golden Retriever and Poodle, which view Goldendoodles and similar hybrids as genetic gambles that create expensive designer mutts bred primarily to deceive the buying public into thinking that there is something “better” about them than their purebred predecessors. The debate over whether the Goldendoodle should or should not be considered an independent breed will no doubt continue for many years. As hybrid crosses like the Goldendoodle develop richer genetic variation, they will become healthier and more likely to live longer than either of their parental lines. Today, the average life expectancy of a Goldendoodle is 10 to 14 years. They probably are predisposed to the same diseases as the Golden Retriever and Standard Poodle. These include skin disorders such as ichthyosis any of several generalized skin disorders marked by dryness, roughness and scaling, eye disorders such as progressive retinal atrophy PRA, von Willebrand's disease, elbow dysplasia, hip dysplasia and patellar luxation. Goldendoodles have a tendency to gain weight with age, so owners should monitor their food intake. Overweight dogs have a higher incidence of orthopedic problems.
