Today, the average life expectancy of a Goldendoodle is 10 to 14 years. They probably are predisposed to the same diseases as the Golden Retriever and Standard Poodle. These include skin disorders such as ichthyosis any of several generalized skin disorders marked by dryness, roughness and scaling, eye disorders such as progressive retinal atrophy PRA, von Willebrand's disease, elbow dysplasia, hip dysplasia and patellar luxation. Goldendoodles have a tendency to gain weight with age, so owners should monitor their food intake. Overweight dogs have a higher incidence of orthopedic problems. Goldendoodles should be kept active and trim for as long as possible to promote joint and heart health and a long, happy life. My dog was the dog of my life. He was a human dog!My best buddy. Everyone in my family and extended family loved him. He looked like a puppy until he died at 12 1/2. He got Lyme disease and anaplasmosis which he then got cancer but it was the Lyme that took him out. I miss him everyday.
