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
