Goldens have a variety of coat types. Some are naturally smellier than others. Some take a long time to dry off after swimming and some dry off very fast. I don't know why more people with sensitive noses or allergies don't get standard poodles. They are wonderful, smart, and easily trained. Originally a hunting dog. Perhaps when people look at poodles they are overwhelmed by the thought of maintaining the show coat. However, they can be kept in a short coat easily. The doodles will not have a reliably easy-care or hypoallergenic coat but the purebred poodles will.
