One thought on “What Do the Different Generations of Goldendoodles Mean?

  1. Arti says:

    First-generation doodles (F1s)are 50% poodle and 50% retriever, but can vary significantly, inheriting alternative traits from both breeds. Bred in 1969, they were created when poodles were crossed with golden retrievers to provide guide dogs for visually impaired people with allergies. Unfortunately for breeders, genetics aren’t as predictable as they would hope. Goldendoodles are one of the original designer dogs. The first-generation goldendoodle will always inherit the shedding gene from their golden retriever parent, shedding anywhere from a few to just as much as a full Retriever. If bred correctly, these dogs have hair instead of fur and don’t shed, which minimizes their risk to allergy sufferers. They’re also usually loyal and adorable companions with easygoing personalities and a high tolerance for children.
