Coat Styles with Generations
This is the most common question we get, "What will the coat look like"... Below are some examples of coat styles with each generation
(Pictures are all our Puppies/Dogs! They are not available they are for EXAMPLE only!!)
Although there are a lot of generations, we only breed some! Below are the generations we breed! We will add as we go!
Doodle's coats are high maintenance! Allow budgeting for Grooming. Regular Brushing/Grooming Required.
F1 (First Generation- Golden Retriever x Poodle) Best Vigor (Health Cross)
50/50 Mix (Approx-Genetics can throw slightly one way vs the other)
Coat Style: Flat, Shaggy, or Wavy/Loose Curl
(Coat Style is Unpredictable with F1 Generation)
Coat Maintenance: Moderate to High Maintenance (Daily Brushing for Shag to Wavy)
Shedding: Minimal to None
(F1's Usually Shed very little)
Allergies: Recommended for Mild to Moderate Allergies
F2: (F1 x F1)
We do NOT Breed this generation. We like to produce a nice fluffy coat. Since F1's all Carry the IC (Incorrect Coat) Gene, two F1's Bred together is a high risk of producing a flat, wiry coat and most pups will shed.
F1B (F1 x Poodle)
75/25 Mix (Approx-Genetics can throw slightly one way vs the other)
Coat Style: Shaggy, Wavy/Loose Curl, Tight Curl
(Coat style is predictable with DNA Testing-IC Gene, Curl/Furnishings Gene)
Coat Maintenance: Moderate to High (Daily Brushing Recommended)
Shedding: Typically Non shed
Allergies: Recommended for Moderate to Severe Allergies
Multi Generational (MG)
(Any Combination of Further Generations-Sometimes is easier to say "MultiGen")
Example: F1 x F3 OR F1B x F3 (There are many variations of Multi Generational)
Coat Style: Very Predictable. Coat Styles can be Shaggy, Wavy/Loose Curl, Tight Curl
(Coat style is predictable with DNA Testing- IC Gene, Curl/Furnishings Gene)
Coat Maintenance: Moderate to High (Daily Brushing Recommended-Tight Curl Brush while Wet)
Shedding: Typically Non Shed
Allergies: Good for all Allergies
