F1B English Goldendoodle
The backcross (F1B) Goldendoodle is produced by crossing an F1 Goldendoodle with a Poodle (non-related of course). F1B Goldendoodles will have a higher success rate for non-shedding and are recommended for families with moderate to severe allergies. The F1B Goldendoodle is 75% Poodle which makes this generation one the most hypo-allergenic of all the English Goldendoodle generations we breed. The English F1B Goldendoodles have beautiful loose wavy to curly plush coats.
The F1B Goldendoodle is 75% Poodle which makes this generation the most hypo-allergenic of all the Goldendoodle generations we breed.
Keep in mind that the F1B will not necessarily look like a poodle or have the temperament of a poodle. The 75% poodle in their generation strictly pertains to the non-shedding and hypo-allergenic factors.
In every F1B litter, there will be puppies that have loose wavy coats that look exactly like an F1 Goldendoodle. These puppies are very desirable for families that want a more golden-looking Goldendoodle that does not shed.
Keep in mind that we can find any one of these coat types from all of our generations.
As experienced breeders, we are able to determine coat types by 6 weeks old.
Goldendoodles are gentle and affectionate dogs with an easy-going temperament. They are extremely intelligent, and according to the Goldendoodle Association of North America, they score in the top 4 of the 150 smartest breeds. They have an extremely social personality and love to be with their fur parents.
If you are looking for a watchdog, a Goldendoodle isn’t for you. They tend to get along with everyone and usually don’t bark at people they don’t recognize. The loving and social Goldendoodle personality makes them great family pets, as they get along with kids and other pets. Keep in mind, because a Goldendoodle is a mix of two different dogs, sometimes you will get more of a Poodle’s personality, and sometimes you will get more of a Golden Retriever’s personality. Their temperament is not entirely predictable.
Because they are so intelligent, Goldendoodles are easy to train and are often recommended for first-time or timid pet owners. Some even call Goldendoodles people pleasers because they always want to make their fur parent happy. If your Goldendoodle is a people pleaser, training will be a breeze. Good Goldendoodle behavior should be rewarded with positive reinforcements.
Exercise Requirements for a Goldendoodle
Goldendoodles require 20-30 minutes of exercise each day to prevent them from getting bored and keep them in good health. If possible, take your Goldendoodle swimming. Both Golden Retrievers and Poodles are water dogs, making the Goldendoodle a swimming fanatic. It is recommended that you do not adopt a Goldendoodle if you live in an apartment because Goldendoodles need plenty of room to roam around and play.
Despite their large size, a Goldendoodle lifespan ranges anywhere from 10 to 15 years.

Feeding Recommendations for the Goldendoodle
Goldendoodles require 1-4 cups of dry food each day, split into separate meals. How much food they require is dependent on their build, metabolism, activity level, and age.
How to Groom a Goldendoodle
Goldendoodles require a sufficient brushing once a week. Owners who don’t want to deal with this upkeep often get their dog’s hair trimmed by a professional. Only bathe your Goldendoodle when it is necessary, like after a muddy hike, as he can lose essential oils that are necessary for a healthy coat.
Also check your Goldendoodle’s nails once every month to make sure they aren’t too long. Due to how frequently they exercise, Goldendoodles’ nails often get filed down on their own. For optimal Goldendoodle health, their ears should be checked once a week for redness or a bad odor, which are signs of an ear infection. Clean their ears with a cotton ball and an ear cleaning fluid, making sure to only wipe the outer ear. Do not insert anything into your Goldendoodle’s ear canal as this can inflict pain or damage.
Are Goldendoodles Good With Kids?
