When selecting a Labradoodle family member it is important to know what you are purchasing. How many kinds of Labradoodles are there?
Labradoodle Generations Explained
There are differences in the Labradoodle and the Multigenerational Labradoodle.
There are further differences in the Australian Labradoodle.
F1 Generation Labradoodle
Breeding a Labrador Retriever (lab) to a Poodle (standard, miniature, or toy size) results in a first cross Labradoodle, called F1.
~ F1: Lab X Poodle cross = 50% Lab & 50% Poodle (first generation cross) F1 typically has a wiry hair coat, which resembles the Irish Wolfhound coat, or a flat coat like the Lab parent, or a wavy/shaggy coat. A F1 can shed slightly, modestly or a lot. This first cross generation requires minimal grooming, and is not recommended for allergy suffers.
Above is a picture of a F1 puppy. As puppies many early generation Labradoodles can resemble the Multigenerational Labradoodle or the Australian Labradoodle…. then later as adults the difference is noticalbly obvious.
F1B Generation Labradoodle
Breeding a F1 Labradoodle to a Poodle is again adding the poodle resulting in a Labradoodle, called a F1B.
~ F1B: F1 X Poodle cross = 25% Lab & 75% Poodle A F1B can have a coat similar to either of the parent breeds (Lab or Poodle) or a coat in between. This in between coat is often a fleece coat or borderline fleece coat. Grooming is recommended every week or two, to prevent matting of the coat. A F1B can be non shed, shed slightly, or modestly to a lot. An experienced breeder can be helpful in determining the amount a puppy will shed as an adult. Some puppies from a F1B litter can be allergy friendly, and again an experienced breeder can give valuable advise.
Above is a picture of a F1B puppy.
Breeding a Labradoodle to a Labradoodle results in a Labradoodle. The appearance of the resulting offspring depends on the generation paired; whether it is an earlier generation of Labradoodle to Labradoodle, or if it is further along into the generational pool. For example: F2 Generation Labradoodle
~ F2: F1 X F1 cross = F2 (second generation cross) Breeding a F1 to a F1 results in a F2 which is a second generation cross.
F2 Labradoodle puppies are considered a 50/50 split, as are the F1 labradoodles, just bred one more generation. The F2 generation has the most variable. Offspring will range in appearance from almost the same as one of the parent breeds (Lab or Poodle) to everything in between. There is no consistency in the litters. Shedding varies greatly from shedders to non-shedders, and are not recommended for families with allergies, due to the varying coat possibilities.
F2B Generation Labradoodle
~ F2B: F1B X F1 cross = F2B (second generation cross) Breeding a F1 to a F1B is technically still a second generation labradoodle, although three generations in the making. This is the first generation of the Multigenerational Labradoodle. Coats can resemble a F1B or F1 generation, and can be non-shed.
F3 Generation Labradoodle
~ F3: F2 X F2 or higher generation Labradoodle is referred to as a third generation cross.
~ Multigenerational Labradoodles or multi-gen is a result of three or more generations. A purebred Multigenerational Labradoodle is a result of five or more consecutive breedings. Breeding further into the generational pool allows for refinement of personality, structural make up and coat quality. A Multigenerational Labradoodle’s coat will continue to grow in length and requires weekly grooming along with a haircut three to four times a year. Multigenerational Labradoodles are recommended for families with moderate to severe allergies.
Above is a picture of a Multigenerational Labradoodle. Consequently the Labradoodle and the Multigenerational Labradoodle are derived exclusively from Lab and Poodle DNA. When these lines of Lab/Poodle, are carefully chosen , their temperament can be just as wonderful as an Australian Labradoodle.
A genuine Australian Labradoodle is much more than a Lab and Poodle mix. Founders and co-developers have devoted over 20 years developing this amazing dog. By carefully selecting and infusing other parent breeds to further define and strengthen the most desirable characteristics: health, movement (how the dog travels), temperament, and a non-shed/allergy friendly fleece coat. The parent breed infusions include the Irish Water Spaniel, the Curly Coat Retriever, the American and English Cocker Spaniels. Therefore the Australian Labradoodle is neither a designer dog, nor a mutt, nor a Lab/ Poodle cross, but is a breed unto itself,…. the result of purposeful breeding.
Pictured above is an Australian Labradoodle.
Miracle Ranch Labradoodles breeds only Multigenerational Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles. We breed for exceptional temperament & character, health, boning & substance, balance, conformation & angulation, non shedding and allergy friendly coats. Hopefully the generation information about Labradoodles, Multigenerational Labradoodles, and Australian Labradoodles has been helpful. Although it has been greatly simplified to keep it short yet add clarity.
