Generations Explained

All the mixes can be soooo confusing so we'll try to make it a little more simple.

FIRST GENERATION

F1 = Purebred X Poodle (50% Purebred X 50% Poodle)

F1b= Doodle X Poodle (25% Purebred X 75% Poodle)

F1bb = F1b Doodle X Poodle (12.5% Purebred X 87.5% Poodle)

SECOND GENERATION

F2 = Any combination where one of the parents is a First Generation (F1, F1B, or F1BB) and the other parent is a First Generation or Higher.

F2b = F2 X Poodle

THIRD GENERATION

F3 = Any combination where one of the parents is a Second Generation (F2 or F2B) and the other parent is a Second Generation or Higher.

F3B = F3 x Poodle

MULTI-GENERATIONAL

Multi-Gen = Any combination where both parents are Third Generation or higher.

POODLE:

Coat Maintenance: Expect to groom your Poodle about 4-6 times per year, or every 2-3 months. Brushing required depends on how long you keep their coat. Dogs that are kept in a "puppy coat" cut require little to no brushing. Longer coats require frequent brushing to avoid matting.

Coat Description: Poodle hair differs from most types of dog fur, as it will not stop growing at a certain length, but will grow continuously, much like human hair. Poodle coats are naturally curly and generally coarse in texture. Many choose to have the fur cut back once every few months to keep the fur shorter and easier to maintain.

Shedding: Most are very light- to non-shedding. Allergy friendliness is usually successful in families with mild allergies.

F1 DOODLE:

The F1 Doodle is a first generation hybrid. They have added health benefits associated to hybrid vigour. This is a phenomenon known in animal breeding. This refers to the fact that the first cross between two unrelated purebred lines makes the litter healthier and better then either parent line.

Coat Maintenance: Expect to groom your F1 Doodle about 4-6 times per year, or every 2-3 months. Brushing required depends on how long you keep their coat. Dogs that are kept in a "puppy coat" cut require little to no brushing. Longer coats require frequent brushing to avoid matting.

Coat Description: Doodle coats grow to a natural body length of 3-5 inches. Many choose to have the fur cut back once every few months to keep the fur shorter and easier to maintain. Coats are usually wavy in the F1 Generation.

Shedding: Most are very light- to non-shedding. Allergy friendliness is usually successful in families with mild allergies.

F1B DOODLE:

The F1b Doodle, is a first generation dog bred back to a poodle to ensure non-shedding allergy-friendliness. For families with severe allergies. Although there is less vigour in this crossing then in the original hybrid, the first generation backcross still is close enough in the breeding tree to benefit from hybrid vigour. With each successive generation vigour is lost.

Coat maintance: Expect to groom your F1B Doodle about 4-6 times per year, or every 2-3 months. Brushing required depends on how long you keep their coat. Dogs that are kept in a "puppy coat" cut require little to no brushing. Longer coats require frequent brushing to avoid matting.

Coat description: Coat continues to grow in length similar in appearance to an F1 Doodle; coats can be wavy or curly.

Shedding: Very Light to non-shedding. Recommended for families with moderate to severe allergies.
