Doodle Generations Reference Guide



Understanding the terms are important, this helps you know which generation would be a good fit for your family:



  • F1B doodle: The F stands for Filial Hybrid.  This simply means that it is a hybrid dog that came from two purebred dogs.

  • F1B doodle:  The 1 stands for the generation the dog is.  In this specific case, the 1 means 1st generation.

  • F1B doodle: The B stands for Backcross.  Backcross is a fancy term that simply means breeding back to a purebred generation.  Typically for Goldendoodles, this means breeding back to a 100% Standard Poodle for hypoallergenic and non-shedding purposes.



For reference, here are the doodle generations that I will discuss. This is merely a reference for doodle generation.



  • F1 doodle: 50% Poodle & 50% Other Purebred Parent

  • F1B doodle: 75% Poodle & 25% Other Purebred Parent

  • F1BB doodle: 87.5% Poodle & 12.5% Other Purebred Parent

  • F2 doodle: 50% Poodle & 50% Other Purebred Parent

  • F2B doodle:  62.5% Poodle & 37.5% Other Purebred Parent

  • F2BB doodle: 81.25% Poodle & 18.75% Other Purebred Parent

  • F3 doodle or Multi-generation doodle: Several generations of doodle 

Coat Types

It is important to note that while we cannot guarantee hair types we can get a good guess on the type of coat that will be produced. Shedding should be reduced, but dogs may shed. Here are some examples of coat types that we expect from our litters.
