Anyone looking for a non-shedding dog should get a F1b Doodle! Here’s an explanation of the genetics behind the F-factor:
If you breed a pure Golden Retriever with a Standard Poodle, it results in a F1 (First Generation). This will produce a F1 Goldendoodle (50% Poodle - 50% Golden Retriever).
If you take that F1 Goldendoodle and breed it back to a Standard Poodle, you’ll get the F1b Goldendoodle (75% Poodle - 25% Golden Retriever). Because this generation will be 25% more Poodle (a non-shedding breed), they have the highest success rate for non-shedding, and are highly recommended for allergy sufferers.
