We crate train our doggies. We also let them sleep wherever they want. Having both skills and being able to be relaxed in new situations enhances your Goldendoodles chill personality. Our Goldendoodle mommas are laid back and easy going, whether they are in a crate or at home alone loose when we are gone. You never know when you may need to have your puppy in a crate even if they have free range although your home. Veterenarians use them if they need to hold your Goldendoodle post surgery for example. Introduce new things in short segments, working up to longer periods of time.
A well-versed Goldendoodle, who can resist? They are already the BEST!
