The Goldendoodle is a cross between a golden retriever and a poodle. This combination gives the dog the intelligence and the low shedding, hypoallergenic coat of the poodle, along with the gentle, sweet, well-natured personality of the golden retriever. Their intelligence and eagerness to please make them easy to train, and they are wonderful with children and for those who suffer with allergies and/or asthma.
This breed benefits from the added health advantage of a hybrid vigor. As an F1, this is a phenomenon where a 1st cross between 2 unrelated purebred lives is healthier and grows better than either parent alone.The F1B are still close enough to benefit from the hybrid vigor. With each successive generation this vigor is lost. We only breed F1 and F1B. We do not breed any 2nd generation goldendoodles. There is too much variation in these crosses.
F1 is a first generation goldendoodle, which results from a golden retriever mated with a poodle(50%golden retriever and 50%poodle). F1B stands for a backcross cross between a first generation goldendoodle and a standard poodle. (75%poodle/25%golden retriever) This makes them essentially non-shedding and a good choice for those who have significant allergies. This is the most likely of any to be non-shedding and allergy friendly of all the doodles.
Our puppies have an AKC registered golden-retriever or an F1 Goldendoodle mom and a standard size cream colored poodle stud.
