Is an F1b Goldendoodle Right for You?

There are many different types of Goldendoodle; all of them are wonderful. One of the most popular types of Goldendoodle is the F1b, or first generation backcross. Here’s what makes F1b Goldendoodles such delightful dogs!

What is an F1b Goldendoodle?

A first generation goldendoodle (F1) puppy has one Poodle parent and one Golden Retriever parent.

A first generation backcross (F1b) Goldendoodle puppy has one F1 Goldendoodle parent and one Poodle parent.

An F1b standard, or backcross, puppy is roughly 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 Golden Retriever.

Why do people want F1b Goldendoodles?

One of the reasons that F1b puppies are so popular is that they are more likely to inherit the Poodle’s hypoallergenic coat. All Goldendoodles can inherit a low-shedding or non-shedding coat, but the trait is more predictable with F1b Goldendoodle puppies.

A hypoallergenic coat is ideal for owners who have mild pet allergies, or for pet owners who don’t like finding clumps of fur floating around on hardwood floors.

F1b standard puppies are also more likely to have the wavy or curly coat that Goldendoodles are known for.

What are F1b puppies like?

Goldendoodles, F1b or otherwise, are all around good dogs. F1b standards share the same behaviors and characteristics of other Goldendoodle generations:

  • Intelligent
  • Fun-loving
  • Sociable
  • Playful
  • Sweet
  • Affectionate
  • Loving
  • Adaptive
  • Loyal
  • Kind
  • Eager to please

Goldendoodles adapt to their living situation and your lifestyle. They can thrive in an apartment, or enjoy the freedom of a big backyard. They can keep up with your active lifestyle on the trail, or cuddle with you on the couch during a movie.

Goldendoodles are easy to train, they are great with young children, and they are excellent dogs for first-time dog owners.

They also have a high level of emotional intelligence. Goldendoodles can tell when you’re having a bad day, and they show extra love and affection. Goldendoodles are often used as therapy dogs, emotional support dogs, and service dogs.

Our F1b standards reach about 50 to 60 pounds at maturity, and Goldendoodles typically live to be 10-15 years old.
