Frequently Asked Questions

Why Goldendoodles?

Question 1 - Why Goldendoodles?


Goldendoodles are a unique mixed breed that has gained immense popularity over the years due to their distinct traits. These dogs are a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, which makes them a perfect combination of both breeds. One of the most desirable characteristics of Goldendoodles is their often hypoallergenic coats, which makes them a great option for individuals with allergies. Additionally, Goldendoodles are highly intelligent and trainable, making them ideal for obedience training and other canine sports. They are also known to be friendly, social, and affectionate, which makes them great companions for families with children or other pets.

Compared to other breeds, Goldendoodles have a unique personality that sets them apart. These dogs have a gentle and loving nature, and they thrive on attention and affection. They are also known to be highly adaptable and can easily adjust to new environments and situations. Goldendoodles are highly energetic and love to play and exercise, which makes them great companions for outdoor activities such as hiking or running. Overall, this unique combination of traits makes Goldendoodles an excellent breed for anyone looking for a loyal, loving, and intelligent companion.

Question 2 - What is the difference between an F1 Goldendoodle and an F1B Goldendoodle?


DoodleBrood offers two different generations of Goldendoodles - F1 and F1B. F1 Goldendoodles are the first-generation offspring of a purebred golden retriever and a purebred poodle. Basically, they are 50% golden retriever and 50% poodle.


F1B Goldendoodles, on the other hand, are a result of breeding an F1 Goldendoodle with a purebred poodle, resulting in pups that are just 25% golden retriever and 75% poodle. Obviously, this means that F1B Goldendoodles have a much higher percentage of poodle genes than F1 Goldendoodles, resulting in generally curlier coats that are often very hypoallergenic.


In general, F1 Goldendoodles are more likely to have straighter hair that requires less maintenance, while F1B Goldendoodles are more hypoallergenic and have curlier coats.

Question 3 - What are the grooming requirements for a Goldendoodle?


One of the most important aspects of caring for a Goldendoodle is maintaining their coat through regular grooming. Goldendoodles have a thick, curly or wavy coat that requires regular brushing to prevent matting and tangling. They should be brushed at least once a week, and possibly more during shedding seasons. Regular grooming also helps to distribute the natural oils in their coat, keeping it healthy and shiny.

In addition to brushing, Goldendoodles will need to be bathed every 6-8 weeks to keep their coat clean and healthy. It's important to use a mild, dog-specific shampoo and conditioner to avoid drying out their skin. Trimming is also necessary to prevent the coat from becoming too long and unmanageable. Many Goldendoodle owners opt to take their dogs to professional groomers every 4-8 weeks for haircuts and nail trimming.
