Different Types Of Goldendoodles

Updated: Sep 12, 2021

Goldendoodles come in a variety of sizes and coat types depending on how they are raised. As a breeder, you can never be 100% sure how your Goldendoodle puppies will end up looking or what size they will end up being. You can usually go by past litters to estimate weight, coat, and appearance, but when you have a first litter between two adult dogs, you can't tell what the outcome of fully grown puppies will be. It can be exciting to see what puppies will look like between a Poodle and a Goldendoodle or Golden Retriever that have never been bred together before, especially since Poodles come in a variety of colors. F1 Goldendoodles are produced by crossing a full blood Golden Retriever and a full blood Poodle. Poodles can vary in size, including toy, miniature, moyen, and standard. A miniature poodle bred with a Golden Retriever can produce mini Goldendoodles. However, it is important that DNA testing is completed on adult dogs to make sure they contain the correct genes to produce the beautiful puppies you are looking for.

F1b Goldendoodles are produced when an F1 Goldendoodle is crossed with a full-blood Poodle or a full-blood Golden Retriever. If you want puppies that have curly coats with less shedding, you will want to breed Goldendoodle with Poodle. However, if you want the puppies to look more like a Golden Retriever, you will want to breed the Goldendoodle with a Golden Retriever. Most people are looking for puppies that are have less shedding, so when looking for an F1b Goldendoodle, they are looking for a Goldendoodle that is 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 Golden Retriever. If you are buying a Goldendoodle, you need to make sure you know what its parents are like and what breeds they are. Some breeders will breed multigenerational Goldendoodles, which means they are not breeding purebred dogs together. If a breeder is breeding multigenerational Goldendoodles, they should complete DNA testing for proof of the amount of percentage of poodle and Golden Retriever they contain.

F2 Goldendoodles are the result of combining two F1 Goldendoodles. The puppies will still be 50% Golden and 50% Poodle, but they will be of a greater mix of genes. This could be good or bad depending on how those genes are mixed. The safest breeding of Goldendoodles or Labradoodles would be to start with two full blooded dogs and then go from there. That way, you will know who the parents of each puppy you choose to have and raise are. If you buy a multigenerational puppy from a breeder, you may not know who that puppy's grandparents are and what they look like. It is also important to always buy a puppy that has some sort of registration documents so you know that the breeder is legitimate and uses legitimate dogs that have had full blooded dogs in his bloodline. DNA testing also tests how much of each breed a dog has in its genes, so be sure to find breeders who will DNA test their dogs.

F3 Goldendoodles are a mix between two F2 Goldendoodles or other complex mixes. To find a doodle that you know comes directly from the pureblood breeds you are looking for, you should try to get closer to buying F1 or F1b puppies to have peace of mind that their genes are derived from pureblood dogs. North Arkansas Puppies currently breeds both F1 and F1b Goldendoodles with our own bloodlines. Again, don't be afraid to ask the breeder for bloodline tests, such as AKC or CKC registration documents or DNA results. This test will help you know that you are buying from a reputable and trustworthy breeder. North Arkansas Puppies is one of those breeders you can trust. We can provide you with proof that our dogs are 100% pure blood and are all AKC or CKC registered.
