If you’re looking for the classic Goldendoodle “teddy bear” appearance with a straighter, Retriever-like coat, an F1 may be for you. If you are more concerned about shedding and have allergies, an F1B Goldendoodle will be better. If you have severe allergies, consider looking into the F1BB.

Is it better to get a female or male puppy?

Many people have a preference for one reason or another. Sometimes those reasons are a result of misinformation. Both genders offer the same exact possible nuances, training, challenges, differing energy levels, submissiveness vs. dominance, dependent vs. independent natures, etc.

Are Goldendoodles hypoallergenic?

A hypoallergenic dog is a dog breed that is less likely to cause an allergic reaction in people who suffer from allergies. This is because hypoallergenic dogs have a low-shedding coat, which means they produce less dander and saliva, the two main allergens that trigger allergies in humans.

The key takeaway is that while Goldendoodles are often an excellent choice for individuals with allergies due to their specific coat type and genetics, it’s crucial to remember that “hypoallergenic” does not mean “allergen-free.” Even hypoallergenic dogs can cause allergic reactions in some individuals.
