The Dood Ranch/Farm Practices
We understand the big reason many people purchase doodles is to have an amazing companion without all that hair everywhere. That is why we do our best to ensure the least amount of shedding as possible, but stating that our dogs are 100% shed free is not possible, it is still a dog. Most websites list an F1B as the lowest shedding generation, and while an F1B is a very low-shedding generation, it is no more than other later generations. Curlier coated dogs often shed less than wavy ones as wavy coated dogs (like an F1) often have more golden retriever bred into them. However, this does not mean that you cannot have a wavy-coated Goldendoodle that doesn’t shed. If you are looking for a wavy-coated doodle that is still low-shedding, we have them and can help you find the best litter for your allergy needs.
Solid: If the dog’s coat is all the same color, it is qualified as solid. Occasionally, a solid colored puppy will have a small white marking, generally on it’s chest or toes. These markings are ‘abstract’ and do not disqualify the dog from being a “solid” color. Adds a cute flair for sure.
Parti: If 30%+ of the dog’s body is white, it is considered a parti color. Parti colors should not fade.
Phantom: Phantom refers to a dog’s markings and phantom marking is similar to that of a Rottweiler or Doberman. Phantom colored goldendoodles, poodles, and bernedoodles generally have a lighter colored marking on their eyebrows, chests, and legs. Phantom coloring can sometimes blend into the dogs coat and become less distinct as the dog grows. Phantom can be combined with parti, sable, or brindle coat colors.
Sable: Sable is a mixture of grey, brown, and black colorings and can sometimes turn out looking brindle when the dogs coat is shaved down.
Brindle: It’s generally easiest to tell if a dog is brindle when shaved down. Its coat will look almost tiger-striped, generally grey, black, and/or brown.
Tri-colored: A puppy is a tri if it is black with distinct white chest and brown eyebrow leg markings.
Adding the Poodle to this breed helps minimize allergic reactions because of their hypoallergenic hair. While we cannot guarantee that no one with allergies will have a problem with Goldendoodles, we can say that most people have reposted less severe reactions or not at all to them. Goldendoodles are friendly and outgoing. They are super intelligent and easily trained. They are also as happy indoors as they are outside. Their fun-loving personalitities and gentle nature truly lend themselves to being the best dog you will ever own!
F1 = Golden Retriever + Poodle
F1B = F1 Goldendoodle + Poodle
F1BB = F1B Goldendoodle + Poodle
F2 = F1 Goldendoodle + F1 Goldendoodle
F2B = F1 Goldendoodle + F1B Goldendoodle
F2BB – F2B Goldendoodle + Poodle
F3 = F2 Goldendoodle + F2 Goldendoodle OR
F3 = F1B Goldendoodle + F1B Goldendoodle
Multi-generational = Generations past F3
