What is a Mini Goldendoodle?


Below is a description of the different generations of Goldendoodles.  Please be aware that not all Goldendoodles are considered non-shedding.  That is why we have decided to only raise the F2B Mini Goldendoodles, which are the most desirable.


FIRST GENERATION GOLDENDOODLES -- F1  This is what Kipper is.

  • The first generation hybrid Goldendoodle is the product of a golden Retriever and a Poodle.   
  • Coat Description:  Coat grows to a natural body length of 3-5 inches.  This does require combing and occasional grooming.  Many Goldendoodle owners choose to have the fur cut back once every few months to keep the fur shorter and easier to maintain.
  • Shedding is light to non-shed.
  • Allergy Friendliness:  Usually Goldendoodles are compatible for families with mild allergies.


    FIRST GENERATION BACKCROSS GOLDENDOODLES -- F1b  This is what Bella and Payzlea are.

    • The backcross puppy is the result bred back to one of its breeds of origin.  From a genetic standpoint a backcross pup is a first generation cross.  As breeders are breeding towards nonshedding and allergy friendliness, a backcross Goldendoodle is generally the product of a Goldendoodle and a Poodle.  The resulting dog is 1/4 Golden Retriever and 3/4 Poodle, generally speaking. 
    • Coat Description:  Coat continues to grow in length, although similar in appearance to a first generation Goldendoodle.  Coats are curly or wavy, and very soft.
    • Shedding is very light to non-shed.
    • Allergy Friendliness:  Recommended for families with moderate to severe allergies. 


    SECOND GENERATION GOLDENDOODLES -- F2

    • A second generation Goldendoodle  (F2) is the result of a Goldendoodle bred to a Goldendoodle.  The second generation hybrid is genetically the most varied generation possible.
    • Coat Description:  The coat can be a flat coat, wavy coat, or curly coat. 
    • Shedding:  Varies from shedders to non-shedders.
    • Allergy friendliness:  Not recommended for families with allergies, due to the varying coat types.


    SECOND GENERATION BACKCROSS -- F2B   This is what all of our puppies are.

    • A second generation backcross puppy (F2B) is the result of a Goldendoodle (F1) bred to a Goldendoodle backcross (F1b). Although three generations in the making, F2Bs are technically second generation dogs.
    • 1st generation puppy:  Golden Retriever x Poodle = F1     1st generation puppy:  Goldendoodle x Poodle = F1b
    • 2nd generation puppy:  Goldendoodle backcross x Goldendoodle = F2B 

             The second generation backcross is still close enough in the breeding tree to the original hybrid to benefit from hybrid vigour.

    • Coat Description:  Coat continues to grow in length, similar in appearance to a first generation Goldendoodle.  Coats are flat, wavy, or curly. 
    • Mostly non-shedding.
    • Allergy Friendliness:  Recommended for families with moderate to severe allergies.


    The Goldendoodles are great with children, other pets and are quick learners.  Goldendoodles love just about everyone and everything they come in contact with.  Mini-Goldendoodles are the perfect size for people looking for a wonderful dog in a smaller size.


    Not all Goldendoodles are non-shedding, so be careful when doing your own research.  Some people claim to have non-shedding Goldendoodles, but it really depends on each individual puppy's genetics and what they received from which parent.


    Our dogs are raised in our home with our family, including two children that do have pet dander allergies.  All our dogs receive lots of attention and tons of socialization.
