Goldendoodle Characteristics

The Goldendoodle has proven to be a highly intelligent, easy to train dog with "gentle" being the most commonly used single word to describe them.
Goldendoodles have a beautiful long coat that is soft in texture and can be straight, wavy, or have a loose curl.  The shedding factor cannot be determined by this.  There is no guarantee as to the amount of or lack of shedding a particular coat type renders. Through
surveys, it has been determined that even the low
shedding Goldendoodles have proven to be
hypo-allergenic for most allergy sufferers.


A Dog's Tail

"The reason a dog has so many
friends is that he wags his tail
instead of his tongue."

"Don't accept your dog's
admiration as conclusive
evidence that you are
wonderful." Ann Landers

"If there are no dogs in Heaven,
then when I die I want to go
where they went." Will Rogers

"There is no psychiatrist in the
world like a puppy licking your
face." Ben Williams

"A dog is the only thing on earth
that loves you more than he
loves himself." Josh Billings

"The average dog is a nicer
person than the average
person." Andrew A. Rooney

"We give dogs time we can
spare, space we can spare, and
love we can spare. And in return,
dogs give us their all. It's
the best deal man has ever
made." M. Acklam

"I wonder what goes through his
mind when he sees us peeing in
his water bowl." Penny Ward
Moser

"Dogs need to sniff the ground;
it's how they keep abreast of
current events. The ground is a
giant dog newspaper,
containing all kinds of
late-breaking dog news items,
which, if they are especially
urgent, are often continued in
the next
yard." Dave Barry

"If your dog is fat, you aren't
getting enough exercise."

Goldendoodle Sizes and Generations


The F1 standard size Goldendoodle was the first to be bred. It is the product of a standard Poodle crossed with a Golden Retriever. The typical mature weight is 50-75 lbs.

The F1 mini/medium Goldendoodle is the product of a miniature Poodle crossed with a Golden Retriever. They mature to 25-45 lbs. and have a 50% chance of being low shedding.

The F1B Goldendoodle is
produced by crossing an F1 Goldendoodle with a
Poodle. The mature adult weight is determined by the size of the parents. These dogs will have a higher success rate for non-shedding over the F1 generation.

The multigen Goldendoodle is the product of two Goldendoodle parents.  The multigen is the most hypo-allergenic with a 98% non-shedding success rate.

F1B = F1 Goldendoodle x Poodle 

F2 = F1 Goldendoodle x F1 Goldendoodle

Multigen = Two Goldendoodle parents - One parent  has to be an F1B or multigen. A Poodle bred to a  multigen Goldendoodle also constitutes a multigen.
