When it came to picking a new family dog, I know I wanted a doodle. Here is the research that I found to help make a decision:

Both these breeds are similar in size and temperament, both make loyal, affectionate companions, and both have similar exercise requirements. However, if you want a great family pet, we recommend the super-friendly Goldendoodle, whereas a Labradoodle would make a better working or service dog

Doodles are smart and great family dogs. You can't go wrong either way.
