WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN F1 AND AN F1B?
WHAT DOES F1 MEAN?
An F1 is really the first generation of the cross between two purebred dogs. If you cross a purebred Golden Retriever with a purebred Poodle - this is considered an F1 puppy.
This mix can produce non-shed & low to medium shed coats in a variety of types that can be straight, wavy, or even a loose curl.
WHAT DOES F1B MEAN?
An F1b is a "Back~cross"
This means that you take a "Doodle" who has 2 purebred parents that are different breeds.... and you breed this "Doodle" back to a purebred poodle.
This generation is better for those seeking a dog if there areallergies concerns or if you prefer to have as little shedding as possible.
These coats are typically a loose wave to a tighter curl
The dog on the left with the pink bandana is an f1 English Cream Goldendoodle. The dog on the right is an
F1b English Cream Goldendoodle. You can see the F1b's have a curlier coat than the F1's. This is a "General" statement - there are times when we get curly F1's and straighter coated F1b's. We will work with you to help find a puppy with the type of coat you prefer.
