Goldendoodles - Types
We breed F1-Goldendoodles only in the standard size in a cream colour. They often have a wavy/shaggy coat, sometimes a soft curly. They are suitable for people with mild allergies.
We breed F1b-Goldendoodles mainlu in a smaller size in the colour cream-apricot. These dogs almost always have a soft curly coat and are therefore suitable for people with more severe allergies.
First generation (F1)
The first generation Goldendoodles is created by a Golden Retriever-Poddle cross. The offspring can look like a Golden Retriever or a Poodle, but most of the animals are in between (see picture).
The first generation cross-breeds of purebred dogs is healthier and grows better than the original breeds. A Goldendoodle can reach an age of about 15 years.
Effort for coat
Average. The coat grows up to a length of 8 to 12 cm and should be brushed regularly. When the coat is kept short, maintenance is more easy and makes the fur softer. Most coats will be wavy/shaggy or of soft curly (see appearance) with sometimes an animal with a shorter coat.
Mild to no hair loss, so this generation is suitable for persons with a mild allergy.
First generation Backcross (F1b)
A Back cross Goldendoodle has a F1 Goldendoodle and a Poodle as parents (25% Golden Retriever and 75% Poodle). The advantages of cross-breeds for health remain.
Effort for coat
Medium to high. The hair continues to grow. The coat is often soft curly and therefore most suitable for persons with a severe allergy.
Most of these dogs do not lose hair. Sometimes, the coat still changes as the dog grows. In this period, there is a risk of temporal hair loss.
