A Goldendoodle is a cross between a Poodle and a Golden Retriever. The Goldendoodle is a wonderful family pet. They are fun loving, happy, love people, adore children and other pets. They love to take part in family activities, such as camping, hiking/walking, swimming etc.

MULTIGENERATIONAL CATEGORIES – also known as Multigens
Multi-Gen- A puppy is classified as multi-generational when both parents are Goldendoodles. One parent must be an F1B or higher. A Poodle bred to an F1B Doodle is also considered a Multigen.
- F2B: An F1 Doodle bred to an F1b Doodle producing 62.5 % Poodle , 37.5% Golden Retriever . These Multigens are recommended for people with moderate to severe allergies.
- F3: An F1b bred to an F2. these offspring will have a higher success rate for non-shedding that an F1 or F2 .
- F3: Some also consider the F1b bred to another F1b an F3.[ Multigenerational] ]
- F1BB: F1b Doodle bred to a Poodle is called F1bb. These dogs are great for folks with severe allergies but still want the doodle look. 87.5% Poodle & 12.5% Golden Retriever.
If a poodle is bred back to a wavy-coated Multigenerational Doodle, most pups will have almost the exact same coat and gene mix as the F1b generation.
The car is a new environment and your puppy will most likely just sleep. If the puppy wakes up and wants to move around, it probably needs to potty. Use the collar/leash combo for stops during your drive. Some puppies will get car sick, so take a trash bag, paper towels, and wet wipes as a precaution. You can additionally layer the bottom of the crate with shredded paper (which I’ll happily provide upon request) to keep the puppy clean if it does get sick.
We recommend that you tie a large bell or two to your doorknob with ribbon, low enough for the puppy to reach with its nose, and teach it to ring the bell each time before you let it outside. This works great in a large home or very active homes where you are not always aware of the poor puppy patiently waiting by the door.
Potty training normally takes around a week. Do not blame or punish your puppy if it does soil in the house, for it is just a baby and will not know why you are upset. Plus, an accident also means that you missed the signs that your puppy needed to go outside.
To make the puppy more comfortable, you can fill an empty two-liter soft drink bottle with warm to hot water, wrap it in a towel, and place it in the crate so the puppy feels like it’s sleeping next to a litter mate. Other than the water bottle, however, I do not recommend putting anything in the crate, lest the puppy plays rather than sleeps.
We do our best to have a fresh, clean puppy ready to cuddle with you, but accidents can happen during travel so there will be some puppy wipes in a small bag inside the plastic sleeve for your use. You may want to bring an old towel if you want to carry him/her immediately after pick up at the airport. Please give us a call or email after you are home and settled in so we know that your puppy arrived safe and sound.
Remember, your first goal is to enjoy and love your new puppy. Feeding, potty training, and sleep are all very important to a puppy’s development, but puppies need love to flourish. In a home where they are welcomed and loved, they will very quickly reciprocate this affection to their family. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do for you in the future.
