The Parti Goldendoodle, just like its other counterparts, is easy to teach when it comes to obedience training. These dogs are smart animals and they are always ready to please their owner and their trainers that they are willing to do things they are asked to do.

Other than the obedience training, part of their training is agility training. They are given agility courses that they need to complete as part of their training. These courses can help them to burn up their energy, bond with other athletic dogs and strengthen the relationship with their owners.


The Parti Goldendoodle is not very hard to feed. However, all pet owners want to keep their pets healthy. The Parti Goldendoodles do not have a strict and specific diet but they prefer to be fed with premium dry food.

The Parti Goldendoodle should be given enough food. It should not be too much or too little for their daily requirement. A good balance of their daily intake of nutritious food is necessary to keep them healthy and active as they grow each day.


A Parti Goldendoodle does not differ from other Goldendoodles. Technically, they are still Goldendoodles so their needs when it comes to training, behavior, health, food and even their hygiene and grooming are the same as all other Goldendoodles. The visible difference between a Parti Goldendoodle from other Goldendoodle is their coat and markings. Other than that, the Parti Goldendoodle is nevertheless one of the cutest and smartest dogs in the world.
