What is an F1B Goldendoodle

The F1b Mini Goldendoodle is produced by breeding an F1 Goldendoodle (which is half [50%] golden retriever and half [50%] standard poodle) with a mini poodle. This makes an F1B mini Goldendoodle three fourths [75%] poodle and one fourth [25%] golden retriever.

The F1B Mini Goldendoodle often credited with a greater success rate for producing a non-shedding mini Goldendoodle. For families with moderate to severe allergies may want to consider an F1B Goldendoodle to address their allergy concerns.

Even though an F1B mini Goldendoodles will be 75 percent poodle, your F1B Goldendoodle will not necessarily look like a poodle or have the temperament of a poodle.

  • An F1B Goldendoodle is the offspring of a poodle and an F1 Goldendoodle.
  • An F2 Goldendoodle is the offspring of an F1 and another F1 goldendoodle, and an F2B Goldendoodle is the offspring of an F1 and an F1B Goldendoodles.
  • Some people have started mating F3 Goldendoodles between two F2 Goldendoodles.

If you forget, you can always just say, “I hear those dogs are great because they don’t shed.” Then let all of us Doodle owners go on and on about how great our dogs are – LOL.
