I’ve had several families and potential adopters ask me about all the different generations of doodles. It can become a bit hectic if you’re not familiar with doodles are new to the breed and may take you awhile to understand. Here’s a brief breakdown of the generations.
F1 Goldendoodle or Labradoodle = Golden Retriever(Labrador Retriever) X Poodle (50% Poodle / 50% Golden/Lab Retriever) = Some will shed a little to none, others a bit more, but nothing like a Golden or Lab.
F1B Goldendoodle or Labradoodle = F1 Goldendoodle(Labradoodle) X Poodle (75% Poodle / 25% Golden Retriever) = Most F1B’s Are Non-Shedders.
F1BB Goldendoodle or Labradoodle = F1B Goldendoodle(Labradoodle) X Poodle or Golden = Most F1BB’s that’s backcrossed to the poodle are non shedders but if backcrossed back to the Golden you are adding more characteristics of the Golden traits as far as shedding and they are called Reversed F1BB.
F2 Goldendoodle or Labradoodle = F1 Goldendoodle(Labradoodle) X F1 Goldendoodle(Labradoodle) (50% Golden / 50% Poodle) = Some will shed a little to none, others a bit more, but nothing like a Golden Retriever or Lab.
F2B Goldendoodle or Labradoodle = F1 Goldendoodle(Labradoodle) X F1B Goldendoodle(Labradoodle) (62.5% Poodle / 37.5% Golden Retriever or Lab) = The Most Curly Ones Usually Do Not Shed and are similar to the F1B generation. Straighter ones will shed like an F1.
F3 Multi-Gen Goldendoodle = F3 Consists of these combinations: Any F2 X F2 = F3 or an F1B X F1B
You will see a wide range in coats types with this generation being from a deep wavy to curly coat.
Multigen Doodle = Any doodle that goes past the second generation. Can also vary on coats types depending on parents shedding gene or improper coat gene.
Contact us if you have any questions regarding the coat types, as of right now we are breeding for Multigen and can get a wide range of coat types. Depends on what were looking to add at that time!!!!
