Types of goldendoodles ?
The Goldendoodle is a hybrid dog that came about by breeding a Retriever and a poodle. This isn’t regarded as a true breed but a blend of two breeds.
Goldendoodles are a mixed dog breed with varying textures and coat colors. The dog’s coat may be tight curls, relaxed curls, or shaggy coated. On the other side, although the colors for these dogs vary, most of them are either cream or golden.
The main idea behind developing this breed was to have an allergenic dog with a good temperament. This dog breed was developed by crossing a poodle (tapping on its non-shedding coat) and a retriever (for its friendly temperament).
You’ll notice there are numerous variations to the Goldendoodles due to the breed involved. When purchasing a Goldendoodle, it’s essential to inquire about the breeds involved and their percentages from the breeder. Some of the most common Goldendoodles include the following:

F2B Goldendoodle- a blend of an F1B Goldendoodle and an F1 Goldendoodle; thus, the end breed will be a 62.5% poodle and a 37/5% golden retriever.
