Goldendoodles, the offspring of a poodle and a golden retriever, make great family dogs. They have the intelligence and sensitivity of poodles and the energy and loving nature of golden retrievers. Their intelligence and desire to please makes Goldendoodle dog training in Atlanta fun and straightforward. At Dog Training Elite, we implement positive reinforcement training, which is perfect for Goldendoodles.

Although our training programs work for any dog and breed, we recognize that every dog is different and has different needs. We've rounded up some tips for training Goldendoodles to help you with your new furry friend. Using these tips and working with a Dog Training Elite trainer will help your Goldendoodle become a loyal companion.

Goldendoodle Training Tips Start Young

The best time to start training your Goldendoodle is from day one! If you bring your new four-legged family member home as a puppy, we recommend you start Goldendoodle dog training as soon as possible. Puppies are eager to learn and please, so starting commands from a young age will build a firm foundation for more training as they grow.

We offer training programs for puppies as young as eight weeks. But don't worry if you start training with your Goldendoodle later in life. Our tried–and–true Dog Training Elite training programs work for dogs of any age.

Goldendoodle Training Tips Begin with Simple Commands

The best way to start training—whether as a puppy or a grown dog—is with simple commands. Starting with simple and easy–to–understand commands will build confidence and trust with your dog. This is essential with a sensitive dog like a goldendoodle. We suggest starting with commands like “sit,” “stay,” “down,” and “come” Once you and your pup have these commands down, it will be easier for both of you to move on to more complex and fun commands.

Goldendoodle Training Tips Work on Eliminating Unwanted Behaviors

Although Goldendoodles have many desirable traits, a few undesirable behaviors are associated with them. The behaviors that we often see are trouble with house training, jumping, and barking. Once you have developed a good training foundation with simple commands, you can start working on eliminating unwanted behaviors.

Our trainers can work with you and your Goldendoodle to solve specific behavioral problems. Using our balanced training theory focusing on positive reinforcement, we can eliminate unwanted behavior without using force, raised voices, or discipline.

Goldendoodle Training Tips Socialize

Goldendoodles are very interactive and energetic animals, so socializing them with other dogs is essential to ensuring they are well behaved. Starting socialization at a young age is beneficial, but it can be accomplished at any age. Dog Training Elite offers group obedience classes, which are a great way to continue Goldendoodle dog training while socializing your dog in a safe environment.

Goldendoodle Training Tips Stay Consistent

Most goldendoodles are relatively easy to train, but staying consistent is essential. When training any dog, you must show your dog that you expect a specific behavior to happen every time. In return, show your dog that you will be consistent with teaching and responding to incorrect behaviors. Staying consistent during your goldendoodle dog training will help your pup learn correct behavior quickly.

Goldendoodle Training Tips Be Patient

One of the most important things to remember when training your Goldendoodle is to be patient. Training a puppy or teaching an older dog new commands can be challenging and take some time. Have patience with your dog and yourself, and you will be successful!

Stick with a Program for Goldendoodle Dog Training in Atlanta

Because of how intelligent and kind goldendoodles are, they are easy to teach and make great family pets. But teaching can quickly become a burden if not done correctly. At Dog Training Elite Atlanta, we take goldendoodle dog training seriously. With positive reinforcement, we give you and your dog the best chance at a happy and obedient future.

Our Balanced Theory

We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.

Dog Training Elite in Atlanta is the top company near you that uses professional positive dog training methods.

We had just adopted our dog and were looking to make her a psychiatric service dog. She was really sweet but we didn’t know much about her past. When Gosia met her she was able to quickly see her potential and gave us a lot of confidence in knowing that she’d be a great dog. It’s been a long hard road going through training, but they’ve been very understanding and accommodating of our needs. They treated our dog very well.Pretty grateful to have met them. We’re excited to have our service dog! She enjoyed all the training, all the praises, and is a very good girl!

I truly cannot thank Dog Training Elite enough, it truly was a wonderful experience for both my family and my dog, Sapphic. Mike was so supportive and patient, making the training time really easy and comfortable. Thank you again!

DTE NE Atlanta is great! Mike really helped us get better control of our wild guy! Murphy is a stubborn little dude so we do have some more practice/training to do, but I am so thankful for the trick and tips I learned from Mike. Thanks!

Absolutely thrilled with the incredible work of Mike and Dog Training Elite NE Atlanta! My dog underwent a remarkable transformation, thanks to Mike’s expertise and dedication. Mike not only provided effective training but also instilled a newfound sense of confidence and comfort in my dog. I am genuinely impressed with the results and grateful for the positive impact on my sweet girl. We started to see a difference in her behavior after just a few lessons. Family members who haven't seen her since her training began are shocked at the difference in her behavior - we have gotten several comments about how she acts like a brand new dog! We are now approaching our final in home lesson and we couldn’t be happier with her progress. She is 6 years old and a rescue, so we chose to go with the Platinum package. I can 100% say that it was worth every penny! The entire team is so kind. I am a student in grad school and they have always been so helpful and gracious when it comes to working with my ever changing schedule. I highly recommend Mike’s program for anyone seeking a skilled professional who truly understands and connects with dogs. Thank you Mike for making such a positive difference in our lives!!!

We absolutely loved working with Mike and Gocia! They are both so knowledgeable, kind and understanding. After our initial evaluation, we decided it was best for us to do the platinum package, mostly due to our dogs reactivity and behavioral issues and we are so glad we did. In addition to the basic obedience commands we worked on throughout the nine sessions, we were able to share any other things that came up throughout the week and work on them as needed. After a few weeks, they were able to bring their dog as a neutral dog and although ours has not been comfortable around other dogs, I was SO surprised to see her able to walk side by side in a heel! We frequently talked about the research behind training methods and other ways we can work on connection with our pup. Mike was so attentive and helpful with our situation, and I’m so grateful we chose to train with them. We haven’t found perfection yet, but we will continue to work on her reactivity in group classes. After trying to do training on our own for so long, having a program to follow has been so beneficial.

I’ve been training my dog Luka with them for maybe a little over 3 months now and it has been the best experience I could’ve asked for. Mike who I did my training with was extremely flexible with scheduling but more importantly they are great with training dogs. I couldn’t recommend them enough.

We are very pleased with Dog Elite Training. Gosia is amazing and was very thorough about training our baby Leia. We seriously recommended their services. Training goes a long way when it comes to everyday circumstances and we are glad that we decided to get Leia on board with their Gold program. Can’t wait to try their Therapy Dog program. We are so grateful about having all the support from Dog Elite to get Leia where she is now. Jessica was also very quick to communicate throughout the whole program and to accommodate schedule changes when needed. Kudos to their excellent customer service!

I'd highly recommend Gosia Billedo, her passion for dogs and upbeat nature makes class engaging and enjoyable. She has a tremendous depth of knowledge with extensive experience in a wide range of training and behavioral situations. She teaches so much more than just sit and stay and educates owners about dogs and proper dog ownership.

They really took the time to understand how to help my dog. Every trainer paid attention and listened to what he needed. They really helped us form a strong bond. The classes are so wonderful for controlled socialization as well! Hugo's week isn't right if we don't go to class!

Gosia and her husband Michael are SO amazing. They really care about your dog but also your family. When Gosia would come to our home for the training sessions I never felt like my dog was going to be harmed. I never felt uncomfortable with her and even my toddler warmed up to her. She makes sure your dog understands the command(s) being asked before she leaves and is always readily available to answer any questions about anything you may need help with. If I ever get another puppy I will for sure be having Dog Training Elite come back. They’re amazing. The group sessions are great for both the dog and the handler as it helps pick up on your weak spots and the dogs. 10000/10 recommend

Gosia has been wonderful with my little Stetson. She knows exactly what we need to work on and how to do it. We are doing the service dog training and would highly recommend them if you are in need of service dog training. It takes commitment and hard work but they will give you all the direction you need.
— Jill Hannon
Posted August 6th 2023
We checked into multiple dog trainers before contacting Dog Training Elite... the choice was obvious from the moment Gosia interacted with our miniature Poodle puppy, Chrissy. I could not be more pleased with the results from the five in-home sessions, and look forward to attending a group training session and socializing our very curious, energetic puppy!

Mike was so patient and great with our dog Smokey. I am a night shift healthcare worker and they were incredibly helpful and flexible fitting in to my schedule. He is a much better behaved dog ever since then.

This was absolutely worth the investment. The trainer was kind and patient but firm and has set us up for success with our pup. The group classes offer continued practice and support. I am grateful to have come across DTE.

Cadey was having some major issues with reactivity and jumping on people. She's a big dog. She's a Lab/Pit mix and 65 pounds--so I couldn't allow this to continue. She's very smart but has always been stubborn. It took a while, but the reactivity is almost completely gone. She still gets excited to see people but has stopped jumping almost completely. These folks love animals and are very honest about YOUR role in the training. If you do the work and help your dog, the process works flawlessly. So far, I'm very pleased. 5 paws up!
