There are three designations of Labradoodles as specified below. There are Australian Labradoodles and American Labradoodles. (See History of Labradoodles.)
At Blue Star Labradoodles, we only sell Multi-Generation Labradoodle puppies because the Multi-Generation Labradoodles are allergy-friendly, non-shedding and have the most reliable temperament, coats and health. It is important when you are researching your Labradoodle puppy that you understand the difference between Multi-Generation puppies and puppies that are the result of a first or second cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle (F1 or F1B).
F1: When a Labrador is bred to a Poodle the offspring are 50% Poodle and 50% Labrador. Most F1’s will have some shedding, wispy hair coat, and maybe dander friendly. There is just not enough Poodle in the dog typically to make them non-shedding and dander free. If you have owned, or been around, a Lab, you know that they shed. However, you should see a noticeable reduction in the shedding with an F1 and they usually have a great temperament if the parents are of the same quality.
F1B or F1 Backcross: When the F1 Labradoodle is bred back to a Poodle the offspring are 75% Poodle and 25% Labradoodle. They are consistently non-shedding, have a fleece hair coat, are very close to dander free and have that great Labradoodle temperament if the parents are of the same quality.
Multi-Generation - When an F1B is bread to another F1B the offspring are 3rd
Generation. They, and future Labradoodles bred to Labradoodles, are considered Multi-Generation Labradoodles or Multi-Gens. These puppies are the most likely to be non-shedding and allergy friendly.
