Doodle Facts  

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

  • Facts About The F1, F1b
    When looking for a Doodle, the letters F1, F1B, etc. will appear frequently. These letters denote the generation of the cross between the two parent dogs. One of the biggest reasons for the recent "Doodle Craze" is that properly bred doodles are non-shedding, hypoallergenic, and intelligent. But at Ben & Jerry Doodles we give you even more doodle than that when you adopt from us. Because every parent dog we breed has had stringent health and genetic tests before ever being bred, you can be assured a Ben and Jerry Doodle will live a longer, healthier, happier, and heartier life than their purebred parents/ancestors. The reasons for the extension of health is because health issues that have been inherited and carried on for generations in the foundational breeds that your Doodle is based upon, are corrected when genetically planned and crossed with another breed. So on top of the "Doodle Benefits" of being non-shedding, hypoallergenic, and intelligent, a Ben & Jerry Doodle will also be around to love and be loved longer! This breeding out of health issues when crossbreeding produces puppies that are stronger and healthier than either of their original parents or ancestors. For this reason, our hybrids are being developed to have this "hybrid vigor." F1 Goldendoodles are a cross between a purebred Golden Retriever and a purebred Poodle. So F1b Goldendoodles are the offspring between a F1 Goldendoodle and a purebred Poodle in order to achieve more desirable characteristics of a Poodle (intelligence, hypoallergenic, non-shedding). In our opinion an F1b or F1bb Goldendoodles are the best Goldendoodle generational cross because they decrease the chance of the wiry wispy/flat coats in F1's and because they retain increased hybrid vigor.
  • Crossing Of The F1
    F1 dogs are the offspring of two purebred dogs that results in a 50/50 mixed breed. Some examples of F1 mixed breeds include Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles, which are both crosses of the Standard Poodle, respectively. The strongest hybrids, according to some, are those from the first generation of crosses.
  • The Cross Back
    A F1B Goldendoodle is a first-generation crossback between a F1 Goldendoodle and a Standard Poodle.
