What Type of coat do i want?
The F1 Goldendoodle coat is the "Classic" coat. When people send me a photo of their dream dog - it almost always has an F1 coat.
Coats are typically shaggy with loose curls and waves. There will always be some degree of shedding, as they are still approximately 50% Golden Retriever. For this reason, some chose to go with the F1b instead..
The F1b coat comes in tight curls, loose curls and fleece. Breeders can distinguish the two curl types within the first few days of birth, but fleece coats can be a bit trickier.
The tighter curl dogs with mature into curly, low to no shedding companions. The ones with looser curls will mature into the F1 look with a bit more curl - perfection!
F1b coats are less likely to have noticeable shedding.
What are my color options?
