Doodles also come in many different generations and depending on what you are looking for one generation may be better then another. F1's are a purebred golden mixed with a purebred poodle. This generation is usually the healthiest and posses the greatest amount of the "hybrid vigor" traits. F1b is a backcross and is a goldendoodle bred back to a poodle. These types of goldendoodles are usually best for people with severe allergies since the f1b usually has a curlier coat then an f1 please note this isn't always the case and your breeder will be able to help you with this. F2 is a goldendoodle bred back to a goldendoodle. Pups in a litter of f2's tend to not sway as much in one direction or another. They seem to be a good mix between both the golden and the poodle sometimes but not always in a f1 litter some pups will sway more towards a golden, some more towards a poodle and some will be between, f3 f3 and higher is also known as multi generation is and f2 golden doodle bred back to an f2 golden doodle and f4 is a f3 golden doodle bred back to an f3 golden doodle. The more you breed them back to one another the more you miss out on the hybrid vigor trait. A 7th generations f7 goldendoodle is eligible for registration as a purebred this hasn't been done as far as I know. As I mentioned before goldendoodles are healthier then most purebred dogs but breeders should still be performing all the testing on the parents.

They need exercise and do best in homes with active family members where they can get plenty of outdoor activity. They need daily exercise. A lack of exercise can result in some unwanted behavior like excessive digging, chewing, barking or other activities. Over the past few decades, Poodle hybrids have become increasingly popular. The name “Goldendoodle” was first used in the United States in the early 1990s, several years after Wally Conron coined the term “Labradoodle” for its Australian cousin. The Labradoodle was developed as a guide dog for vision impaired people who themselves or whose family members suffered from dog allergies. As the Labradoodle’s popularity rose astronomically among service and companion dog owners in the late 1980s and 1990s, other dog fanciers decided to cross Golden Retrievers with Standard Poodles, to see if the gentle nature and cheerfulness of the Golden and the coat and intelligence of the Poodle would produce a combination as popular as that of the Labradoodle. First generation F1 Goldendoodles are the hybrid offspring of a Golden Retriever bred to a Standard Poodle. These Goldendoodles may or may not be allergy friendly, and their coats can shed a little or a lot. First generation littermates rarely share consistent traits. They tend to be either more like a Golden or more like a Poodle in terms of temperament, coat, size, shedding propensities and hypo allergenicity.
