"F1" means first generation of that mix and "F1B" means first generation of the F1 mix.
In the Doodle world, F1 puppies mean each parent is a purebred dog giving the pups half of each parent's genes. One parent will always be a poodle whether standard size, miniature size or toy size. The other parent is the breed whose characteristics, personality and potential color scheme is desired.
An F1 pup will have a shaggier coat than a poodle. some coats will be long and very wavy and some coats will have a short undercoat and wispy curls/waves for their top coat. Near all F1 pups will shed a small amount but are still considered, "hypo-allergenic." They are ideal for families who don't mind few hairs here or there and really don't have allergies or only mild allergies; they may simply desire the look and personality/characteristics of the F1 mix.
An "F1B" pup has one parent who is already an F1 dog and the other parent is backbred to one of the two purebreds of the F1; in the case of doodles, the chosen backbred should always be a poodle. This is intentional breeding for human desires such as allergies and shedding and hence the poodle back-breeding.
An F1B pup should have a curlier coat and the shedding should be absolutely not noticeable. (There is no such thing as a non-shedding dog. All dogs shed; the difference is how much is noticeable.) F1B's are also considered the most hypoallergenic of all of the doodle mixes and are ideal for persons and families who have mild to moderate allergies.
"Double doodles" are pups who have parents that are both either F1 dogs or F1B dogs (or a mixture of either) and are different doodles. For instance, an F1 or F1B Goldendoodle and an F1 or F1B Labradoodle would give offspring of a "double doodle." These make great looking dogs given the mixes and the variability of shedding and hypo-allergenic status varies based on the parents' genes.
Bordoodles area combination of the smartest breed of dog, the Border Collie and the second smartest breed of dog, the poodle.
This is a fairly new breed and and not too many breeders are known for these. The following info is taken from Bordoodles.com:
"When the Bordoodle breed first became popular, most or all of the organizations that recognize this breed such as Continental Kennel Club, Designer Breed Registry, Dog Registry of America, and others named this dog the “Borderdoodle” and people came to know the breed as the Borderdoodle or Border Doodle. This seemed to make the most sense because it was crossed with the Border Collie and the Poodle. Over the years, several of the breed organizations shortened the name to Bordoodle. This led the rest of them eventually changing their registry names from Borderdoodles to Bordoodles. This has led to the technical term being the "Bbordoodle."
The Bordoodle, also known as "Borderdoodle", is a hybrid cross between the two smartest dogs in the world, a purebred Border Collie and a Purebred Poodle. Bordoodles are recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC), Designer Dogs Kennel Club (DDKC), Dog Registry of America, Inc (DRA), International Designer Canine Registry (IDCR) and Designer Breed Registry (DBR) and Continental Kennel Club (CKC).
The average Bordoodle has a shoulder height of 18-20 inches and typically weighs 35-45 lbs. The mother of our Bordoodles weighs 35 lbs and stands 18 inches floor to withers. The father of our Bordoodles weighs 55 lbs and stands 22 inches floor to withers.
Borderdoodle coats are generally curly or wavy and low to non-shedding depending on whether they are F1 or F1Bs. Because of the hybrid cross with the poodle, their coats are usually hypoallergenic as well.
Because Bordoodles are a Border Collie and Poodle cross, they possess genes that will produce a variety of colors and markings. From solid colors of black, red and white, to dual and tri-colored combinations and markings including merle, sable and even brindle. The iconic Bordoodle possesses the traditional "Border Collie" markings which include a white muzzle, blaze, white vest, white collar, white socks and a white tail tip. Bordoodles generally have light or dark brown eyes, but because of the Border Collie genetics they can sometimes have blue and even green eyes. We have also seen a variety of coat colors.
Because they are a cross between the two smartest dogs in the world, Bordoodles possess a wonderful mind. They like having things to do, playing games and going places. They are tolerant, affectionate and very loyal. They are ideal as family pets and well suited for kids. Bordoodles having originated from the Border Collie and Poodle, are most happy when given attention and activities on a daily basis. Bordoodles especially love to go on walks. They perform exceptionally well at popular K9 sports and are known to be "super" athletes excelling in activities such as Frisbee, fetch, obstacle course competitions, and more. They love long hikes and enjoy experiencing the great outdoors with their family and companions.
The Bordoodle's tremendous intelligence and desire to please their owners make training fairly simple. Bordoodles are sensitive and live for praise. They are very obedient and agile, able to be taught a great variety of commands and tricks. They are eager to learn and catch on quickly.
The balancing nature of the resulting cross between a Poodle and a Border Collie draw the very best attributes of both breeds while seemingly leaving behind any negatives. A Bordoodle is smart, mindfully calm and intuitive.
Because of these proven traits in the Bordoodle, our dogs will make ideal service dogs ranking high in three particular service categories: therapeutic, mobility assistance, and diabetic alert dogs."
Goldendoodles are a mix of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. They were said to be originally "developed" in the late 1960s for the purposes of providing a "seeing eye dog" to clients with dog allergies. Again, the true development of Doodles really is not determine-able as dogs breed with disregard to mates. However, an ethical breeder picks mates with regards to all aspects of the desire-able outcomes of the offspring.
Goldendoodles can be an array of color depending on the color scheme of the poodle parent however, most Goldendoodles tend to be cream, apricot, or blonde. The coats are either curly or wavy depending on their status of F1 versus F1B. The coats can be small shedding to hardly noticeable (known as non-shedding) but all are considered hypo-allergenic.
A standard Goldendoodle will often weigh 60 to 100 pounds. A medium Goldendoodle will weigh between 30 and 45 pounds and a miniature Goldendoodle will weigh approximately 15 to 30 pounds. The standard in height at the shoulder for a male Goldendoodle is about 24-26 inches. For females, it is 22-23 inches. Often, taller Goldendoodles inherit more from the golden retriever and will weigh substantially more.
The mother of our Goldendoodles is an apricot, soft, curly-coated poodle. She weighs 50 lbs and stands 20 inches floor to withers. Dad is an F1 apricot colored Goldendoodle. He weighs 55 lbs and stands 21 inches floor to withers. Both have a parent that is black and both are super sweet dogs!
They are loyal, smart, and easily trained. The Golden Retriever likes tennis balls and swimming while the poodle enjoys hunting and lounging and so do their Goldendoodle offspring making them an excellent addition to families. types of doodles Marquette

Aussiedoodles have a moderate to high activity level. They need a good walk or active playtime each day, and they are athletic enough to participate in such dog sports as agility, flyball, obedience and rally. They can also be excellent therapy dogs.
Both of the breeds used to create Aussiedoodles are considered to be canine Einsteins. It’s to your benefit to give the Aussiedoodle a job that will keep him busy, busy, busy. Teach him to find and bring you things, pull your gardening equipment around the yard, or anything else you can think of. Keeping him occupied will ensure that he doesn’t go off and find his own (likely destructive) entertainment. But if you begin socialization and training early and use positive reinforcement techniques such as praise, play and food rewards, you will be rewarded with a wonderful companion.

"As a breed, the Poodle has a surprising amount of variety and versatility. Poodles can be athletic, rambunctious, energetic – just about anything under the sun, at least relative to the expectations of Poodles that many people bring to the table.
The Poodle is an extremely smart dog, ranking second only after the Border Collie as the most intelligent dog breed. They are highly-trainable and make excellent service and therapy dogs. As family pets and companions, these popular dogs are loving, playful and even a bit mischievous- you’ll never be bored with a Poodle by your side.
While a lot of people might think of Poodles as the epitome of a lapdog with an elaborate hairstyle, these dogs come in all sizes- from toy to standard Poodles that weigh up to 70 pounds. If you want to find out which type of Poodle is the right one for you- or if the breed is a good match for your family in the first place- read on.
The Poodle might seem like a posh show dog, but these dogs actually started out as a water retrievers, or “gun dogs”. Their original role was to assist hunters in retrieving waterfowl (such as ducks) from the water. Their curly coat, which is now primped up for dog shows, was valued for its moisture-resistant qualities. The German word “pudel,” in fact, actually refers to the splashing these dogs would make during the hunt. The English word “Poodle” was derived from it. Even though the breed originated in 19th century Germany, the standard was perfected in France, which considers Poodle to be a national breed. These dogs are now known primarily as show dogs and pets, and selective breeding had a lot to do with it.
There are three varieties of Poodle, and according to the American Kennel Club, the oldest of these varieties is large or Standard. The Poodle was bred to have a water-resistant coat – which helps explain the quality of the current dog’s coat – that was eventually groomed and patterned according to taste and style rather than worrying simply about functionality. Other types of Poodle today include Toy and Miniature. Although they retain the main traits of their full-sized relatives, their compact size makes them a perfect fit for condo and apartment dwellers.
Other types of Poodle today include Toy and Miniature.
Since there are three varieties of Poodle, two of those varieties – the Toy and Miniature – actually take its pedigree from the oldest of these varieties, the large or Standard Poodle. If you plan on showing your dog, a quality pedigree will be an absolute must. Otherwise, a health guarantee is all you need from a reputable Poodle breeder.
Poodles have been around for centuries and have ancestors across countries in Europe like Germany, England, and Spain.
The Poodle does not widely differ from other dogs when it comes to their nutritional needs. Like most other dogs, these posh pooches will also thrive on a diet based on high-quality dry food for dogs. Of course, not all types of kibble will do. You’ll have to pick out those that are suitable for your Poodle’s age (puppy, adult, senior), size and activity levels. Kibble appropriate for toy breeds, small breeds, or large breeds will usually be a good fit.
When it comes to exceptionally smart dogs, this breed ranks at the very top of the list. The impressive smarts are not reserved for only one type of Poodle. All of them are considered to be second only to Border Collie in terms of intelligence. If you have the right training approach, this dog is going to be highly trainable. They won’t have a problem learning commands or even elaborate tricks and routines- as long as they have the proper motivation.
Toy and Miniature Poodles might be prone to small dog syndrome and have a stubborn streak, so combine positive reinforcement training with a confident, firm attitude for best results.
Weight for Poodles will vary depending on the type. Toy can weigh as little as 6 pounds, Miniature version is usually at 15 pounds, while the Standard size can get up to around 40 to 70 pounds.
The Poodle’s temperament is often about energy. From the Standard to the Miniature, you can expect your dog to be playful and lively- contrary to the popular image of a perfectly groomed lazy lap dog. They are also very sweet and affectionate- combine that with their human-like intelligence and you have a dog that forms an inseparable bond to his family.
Curious, goofy, and smart, Poodle will love to play and can be a great companion to children. However, Toy and Miniature variants are also very fragile so they shouldn’t be alone with young kids, as they could inadvertently hurt them.
A standard Poodle should have a life expectancy of around 12-15 years. The same approximate life expectancy goes for Miniature Poodles, which gives them plenty of time to grow up along with your children if you’re considering getting this breed as a family pet.
Being energetic as they are, this breed will like a good deal of exercise. A lot of them will also enjoy living up to their hunting and pointing instincts. As former retrievers, Poodles should be able to enjoy chasing balls and Frisbees, as well. The American Kennel Club lists this dog as an “active” breed. They will require at least 30 to 60 minutes daily exercise, depending on their size and overall activity level.
The American Kennel Club’s description of the Poodle reads as follows: “The Poodle, though often equated to the beauty with no brains, is exceptionally smart, active and excels in obedience training.”
The coat of the Poodle is, of course, one of its defining characteristics. Their curly, hypoallergenic hair comes in many different colors. There are the usual white, black, cream coats to blues, apricot, chocolate, and bi-colored poodles.
Many people will groom their dog stylishly and in extravagant ways, especially for dog shows. If you’re just taking in this dog as a pet, however, basic grooming is all they really need. Routine brushing to prevent matting and tangling to regular visits to a professional for a trim are all it takes to keep those curls perfect.
As this is an energetic breed, you can imagine how mischievous and active a puppy can be as it grows up. Make sure to get them through basic obedience and socialization early on- these dogs can be strong-willed if you let them. " ~Petguide.com
