Choosing the Right Goldendoodle for Your Home

Take it from us: There is no other breed as loveable, adorable, and perfect for a caring family than a Goldendoodle! One of the most notable characteristics of a Goldendoodle is how allergy-friendly they are.

While making the moves to bring a Goldendoodle home, you will most likely see labels and terminology that are used to differentiate one type of Goldendoodle from another, such as F1 or F1B. We’re here to break down these types of Goldendoodles, all for you to make the best decision in bringing your new best friend home.

Our F1 Goldendoodles

When you see the label F1 next to a Goldendoodle, that means they are the first generation from a purebred Golden Retriever (Mom) and purebred Poodle (Dad).

F1 pups are perfect for allergy-prone families. Coat colors and textures will vary among any Goldendoodle litter, however, F1 Goldendoodles will have shaggy, loose big curls.

Our F1B Goldendoodles

The label of F1B next to a Goldendoodle refers to the crossing of an F1 Goldendoodle (Mom) and purebred Poodle (Dad).

F1B Goldendoodles are very popular due to how amazingly hypoallergenic they are… they do not shed, making them ideal for homes with severe allergies! Just like an F1, coat colors and textures will vary, but F1B Goldendoodles tend to have tighter, smaller curls.

Micros, Minis, Mediums, & Standards

Now that we’ve explained the generational differences between Goldendoodles, the question of Goldendoodle size will most likely come into play: What different sizes of Goldendoodles are there?

Micros are between 15 to 25 pounds, Minis are 25 to 35 pounds, Mediums are 35 to 55 pounds, and Standards are 55 pounds and above. No matter the size of your Goldendoodle, proper nutrition, activity levels, and attention is necessary to keep them at optimum health for their lifespan.

What Do F1s and F1Bs Have in Common?

Aside from coat color and texture, these two types of Goldendoodles exhibit the same intelligence, trainability, and friendly personality you would expect from the breed. At Goldilock’s Goldendoodles, all of our puppies begin potty training. Each puppy will come home with their first set of shots, deworming, microchip, heart-worm medicine, full vet approval, and a one-year health guarantee!
