The Goldmation is a cross between a purebred Golden Retriever and a purebred Dalmatian. These dogs are called hybrid due to their origination from two different pure breeds. The Goldmation dogs are alert, intelligent, loyal and social dogs that are up to 24 inches high and weigh around 75 pounds. These dogs are energetic, lively, friendly and affectionate dogs that are good family pets with proper socialization.
The Goldmation dogs are found in a variety of colours like black, red, white and yellow and a mix of these colours.
Their coat is medium length dense coat with water-repellent hair.
The Goldmation dogs are loving, friendly, loyal and protective of their family. They are playful, cheerful and happy going dogs that are gentle and patient with small children. These dogs are social and do not like to be left alone for longer time periods. They like to be with their family most of the time and enjoy human company. Generally very obedient, these hybrids do need obedience training from puppyhood and a clear understanding that they are NOT packleaders. They tend to be independent but such behavior can be dealt with constant and firm obedience training. These dogs are very active. They will need physical and mental stimulation to keep them happy and fit. These dogs can be good watchdogs and they are great family pets for the right family.
The Goldmation coat is low maintenance and would require regular brushing.
They are intelligent enough to be trained easily but sometimes, they may show independent behavior. This should be dealt with firm and consistent training.
These dogs have lots of stamina and energy and they need physical and mental activities to relieve their energy. Lack of exercise can make them destructive. Daily long walks and play opportunities should keep these dogs healthy, both physically and mentally.
