Today I want you to get to know some of the most popular golden retriever mix dogs. And who knows, you might find the perfect mix for you and your family.
Types of Golden retriever mix
1. Golden Husky = Golden Retriever + Siberian Husky
The Golden Husky is a mix of Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky. They are unusual, but their rarity and specific look make them one of the most expensive designer breeds out there.
It is right that they are great dogs for families, but you need to have knowledge about dog training. The reason why you need to know how to train dogs is that they are very active and they demand training. However, they are very intelligent so this makes everything a little bit easier. Surely, if you want to have a Golden Husky, you need to have a house with a big yard because they can not live in a flat or apartment.
When we are talking about grooming, the Golden Husky has a double coat, so they shed continually. Be prepared to have fur all over your house and clothing because they have a lot of hair.
They can live up to 13-14 years, which is a great life period for a big dog like them. Their health is generall good, but they can have some problems like hip dysplasia. This problem is common for both breeds so you need to be ready for it.
2. Goldenbull = Golden Retriever + Pitbull
The Goldenbull is a mix of the American Pitbull Terrier and the Golden Retriever. They are medium to large-sized dogs, it depends on parents. They are very active, so exercise is a must, and at least an hour a day!
Also, be aware that their coat colors depend on their parents. When we talk about grooming, the coat can be short or medium length. Because this designer dog os part Pitbull, their coat is easier to groom than others.
3. Golden Corgi + Golden Retriever = Corgi
Golden Corgis is a mix of golden retriever and Corgi. These two breeds are both friendly, so they are great for families with children. Also, their advantage is size, because Golden Corgi is usually a medium-sized dog. Their coat is medium length. Golden Corgies are active during their puppy years, but when they get older they usually just want to cuddle with you. They can live in a flat because they do not need a lot of activity.
4. Golden Retriever + Poodle = Goldendoodle
The Goldendoodle is a cute mix of Golden Retriever and Poodle. This Mix is the most known because they are popular on the internet. Goldendoodles are medium-sized dogs. There are also toy-sized Goldendoodles. They are a friendly and sociable breed and they adore children. And, because they shed little, they are great for people who are allergic to dogs. Their coat can be straight, wavy, or curly. Also, they can be dark brown, black, or cream-colored. Interesting information about them is that they love water a lot.
5. Golden Retriever + cocker spaniel = Golden cocker retriever
Golden cooker retriever is a mix of golden retriever and cocker spaniel. This mix is personally my favorite. Golden cooker retrievers are are too cute because of the coocker’s specific ears. This breed is a medium-sized dog. They are great for families and people who live in apartments. They are easily adaptable and very playful. A good thing is that they are very easy to train and they even enjoy learning because they are very smart. Their coat can be colorful, brown, white, or dark brown.
