We have found that there is so much bad information floating around the internet about dogs and Goldendoodles in particular.
Generations and filling labels
Most of our litters are multigen. F1 is a first generation cross between a poodle and a retriever. Next is f1b. Taking an f1 and back crossing to a poodle. The problem is anything beyond that is unpredictable because you do not know which coat genes the parent inherited. So we coat test all our dogs. We only pair dogs for the best out come of little to no shedding. We have found to keep as much retriever in the lines that back crossing to a poodle over and over is not ideal. So we select our parents based on coat testing not generation.
Poodles come in a variety of colors. The USA only recognizes some of the many colors. Other European countries recognize many more. So you may see colors that are not as popular in the USA but have been bred for many years in other countries. Because we are not breeding and registering to akc we are not limited on the colors we can produce to stay with the breed standard. We breed solid, Parti, and Merle.
