When choosing a Mini Goldendoodle we have F1, F1b, and F1bb to choose from.
The F1 puppies are the first-generation breed. Mom is a Golden Retriever and Dad is a mini poodle. They have a wavy or soft curly hair coat with minimal shedding after they have lost their puppy fur. If you are looking for low maintenance, partially hypoallergenic dog this would be a good choice for you. Their grooming consists of daily brushing to keep the hair from being matted. They should be on a 6-month grooming schedule. They have the even-tempered personality that takes after the Golden Retriever. They vary in size from 20-45 pounds and are 20-24 inches tall.
An F1b is a second-generation with Mom being an F1 Goldendoodle and Dad a mini poodle. They have a soft curly haircoat with almost no shedding. They are semi-hypoallergenic and are a great choice for a person who suffers from pet allergies. They require more frequent grooming and should be on a 6-8 week grooming schedule. They have loyal and intelligent temperaments. They vary in size from 19-35 pounds and are 18-20 inches tall.
An F1bb is a third-generation with Mom being an F1b Goldendoodle and Dad a mini Poodle. Their hair coat is that of a poodle as they are more poodle than Retriever. They are guaranteed hypoallergenic and no shedding. They should be on a 6-8 week grooming schedule. They have loving and super intelligent personalities but tend to have more energy. This breed is also smaller in size, they make great apartment dogs. They vary in size from 15-25 pounds and are 14-16 inches tall.
Mini Goldendoodles have a life expectancy of 12-16 years.
