F1 vs. F1B vs. F1B.B vs. F2 vs. MultiGen
What does all of this mean?
F1 Golden Doodles are 50% Retriever or BMD and 50% Poodle. This generation will have a variation of wavy coats. They will have light shedding but the coat is easier to maintain. This is a great way to get the best of both worlds-
Hybrid Vigor is at its best with this blend.
F1B Golden Doodles are 25% Retriever or BMD and 75% Poodle. This is achieved by crossing an F1 with a Poodle. This generation will have a wavy or curly coat and will typically be non-shedding. F1B Golden Doodles are ideal pets for families with allergies or that prefer to be pet-hair free.
F1BB Golden Doodles are 12.5% Golden Retriever or BMD and 87.5% Poodle. This can be achieved when crossing and F1B Golden Doodle with a Poodle. This generation will be curly, as they have more poodle attributes. They are non-shedding & considered hypoallergenic. This is the absolute BEST choice for several allergy/asthma sufferers.
F2b/F2bb Golden Doodles are produced by breeding an F1 or F1b generation to another F1 or F1b generation. The coat result is typically curly and non-shedding and a good choice for allergy sufferers. This combination has become VERY popular due to the classic "doodle face" and heavy wavy to curly coat type.
Multigenerational Goldendoodles are produced by combining the genes of two F2 generation Goldendoodles or higher. This creates an F3, or commonly called a "multigen". Coat types are less predictive in this generation. They can vary between wavy to heavy waves, loose curls to tight curls. IDOD Multigens are non shedding.
Here at IDOD, we proudly raise F1b & F1bb Mini Bernedoodles. Tri-colors, bi-color, brindles, creams and sables can be expected from our litters. The F1b Bernedoodle is 75% Poodle and 25% BMD-therefore gain the non shedding qualities from the Poodle. This is a good choice for allergy sufferers. Depending on the specific litter and parents, adult weight ranges for the puppies are 30-50#. All of our Bernedoodles will have furnishings (doodly-look, muzzle hair). Bernedoodles and Goldendoodles are very similar in personalities. I have found that the Bernedoodles tend to be a bit more laid back & snuggly!
IDOD Mountain Doodles
Golden Mountain Doodles (GMD) and Australian Mountain Doodles are the up and coming popular Trio! Approx. 70% Poodle, 20% BMD, 10% Golden Retriever or Australian Shepard-you can get the best qualities of all 3 breeds. IDOD GMDs have the beautiful, doodly-look, are wavy to curly and typically non shedding. Currently we offer Mountain Doodle puppies that will mature to around 20-50#. Colors will range from merle, tri-color, bi-color, brindle, apricots & creams. Litters are offered only 1-2 times per year.
Companion, Therapy & Service Dogs
Goldendoodles make wonderful pets! They can also provide much needed services for you or your family. Many of our doodles have gone on to be therapy dogs and are trained to provide comfort to others. They are found working from home, nursing homes, dentist offices, mental health institutes and various other therapeutic environments. Many help ease anxiety, decrease the symptoms of depression and promote stability for autistic children.
Service dogs are skillfully trained to do practical tasks. In this situation, the dog will be alert to changes and trained to help remedy the situation. We have doodles in homes of families with diabetes and seizures. Of course, to achieve optimal results, additional training is required. Goldendoodles are social, intelligent, loving and good natured pets and they are eager to take on the task to serve you!
