Why a Goldendoodle?
Aside from their natural ability to make anyone smile, Goldendoodles are most popular for their teddy-bear like appearance, their loving and playful personalities and their intelligence.
Though it is no guarantee and depends on the genetics of the particular dam and sire bred as well as the puppy's genetics, they are often desirable for their tendency to shed much less than other breeds.
While they are primarily bred to be companion dogs, Goldendoodles are known for being an intelligent breed that is eager to please their owners, which generally makes them hard working and capable of being well trained. Goldendoodles have been successfully trained as great therapy dogs, service dogs and search and rescue dogs since 2005.
What's the difference?
An F1 is the basic cross-match of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. The DNA is generally split 50%50.
An F1B is a cross between a F1 Goldendoodle and a pure bread poodle. F1B is 75% Poodle and 25% Golden Retriever.
An F2 Goldendoodle is a second generation meaning both parents are F1 Goldendoodles.
A multigenerational Goldendoodle is when there are two Goldendoodle parents bred beyond the second generation.
