What does Hypoallergenic Mean?
Hypoallergenic means relatively unlikely to trigger allergies or cause an allergic reaction. With the advancement of the genetic testing, we are able produce puppies that are minimal to non-shedding (if they shed at all), hypoallergenic, and the most allergy friendly puppies possible. If you are looking for a minimal to non-shedding puppy, be sure that you choose a breeder (like us) that does the proper DNA coat testing. No breeder could ever guarantee that your dog will be 100% non-shedding (even humans shed a few hairs daily) or that you will have no allergy response (some folks are allergic to the proteins in their saliva). We recommend anyone with moderate to severe allergies who is considering a puppy consult with your allergist first to be sure that a goldendoodle will be a good fit for your family.
Do Goldendoodles shed?
F1 Goldendoodle is the first generation of hybrids bred from purebred Golden Retriever and purebred Poodle as parents. F1 Goldendoodle generation has a higher risk of shedding, but some do not shed. When they do shed, most shed lightly, and some shed moderately. They do not shed as bad as the Golden Retriever.

A F1BB Goldendoodle is the most hypoallergenic and non-shedding of all the first generation Goldendoodles. This is due to a large amount of Poodle genetics. Which means that Goldendoodle will likely come with an extremely curly coat that will need to be brushed every day. Goldendoodles need groomed every couple of months to prevent the fur from matting. However, this Goldendoodle generation is great for people with pet allergies and don’t want to have to clean up dog hair.
Designate Dog-Free Zones
If you see an F2 goldendoodle, then that means it is a second-generation dog that had two goldendoodles as parents. If you have an F3, then that is a catch-all term for any dog beyond the F2 without going backward from the 50/50 mix. If you see an F1B goldendoodle, then that means back-crossing occurred, which is usually done to get the softer, curly coat from the poodle. That gives you a 75/25 poodle/retriever mix. If you have a F2B goldendoodle, then that’s a two-thirds poodle mix.
