Doodles are adored for their sweet personalities and stuffed animal appearance, but there are many different 'types' or generations of Doodles. With each come different coat qualities and varying degrees of shedding. If you're an allergy sufferer, its important to understand what your options are when considering a Doodle. Mixing dog breeds does not "blend" their genetics, we all carry 2 copies of each gene. 1 from Mom, 1 from Dad. Dogs are no different and the traits they inherit depend on what Mom & Dad have to offer. We have written the descriptions below to help explain what significant genes affect their coats and what our different Doodle crosses offer.
An “F1" is the first generation cross between an Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, or Golden Retriever and a Poodle (50% x 50%). F1s will inherit 1 copy of the shedding coat-type called "improper coat" or IC along with 1 copy of the Poodle's nonshedding coat-type called "Furnishings" or F. This gives F1 puppies a straight or wavy low-shedding coats. They tend to be low-moderate maintenance in terms of grooming. F1's tend to be best for those with mild or no allergy concerns due to their unpredictability in how much or little they will shed and how that will affect an individual person's allergies. Our Program includes F1 Bordoodles.
An “F1b” is the cross between an F1 back to a Poodle (25% x 75% Poodle). This cross produces beautiful coats that vary between wavy and curly. Statistically, 50% of the litter will be IC/F like an F1 but with less shedding, and 50% will be F/F and non-shedding. They require frequent brushing and grooming to maintain their soft coats and keep them tangle-free. They can also be cut and styled in a variety of ways. F1B's are generally allergy friendly and recommended for those with moderate allergy concerns. Our Program includes F1b Aussiedoodles, Bordoodles, and Goldendoodles.
“Multi-Gen” describes a Doodle x Doodle cross of F1b or higher. Percentages of each breed can vary depending on the parents. Our program includes Multi-generational Aussiedoodles and Goldendoodles that are bred with coat quality in mind. We aim to eliminate the IC trait in order to produce the lowest shedding puppies by selectively breeding our best females to the highest quality males. We constantly strive to improve the coat, color, conformation, and temperament of our Doodle lines. Our goal is to produce puppies that are F/F and non-shedding. Excellent for those with more serious allergy concerns.
"Double Doodles" are the result of crossing 2 different types of Doodles. They can be a combination of any Doodle cross and generation. This can produce very unique and desirable puppies when done to the same standard and planning as the above-mentioned generations. Our Program includes the Aussiedoodle/Bordoodle AKA "Border- Aussiedoodles" & the Aussiedoodle/Goldendoodle AKA "Aussie-Golden Doodle".
