Pleasant Valley Doodles
The rise in popularity of these breeds is due to the dogs themselves.
They are a wonderful hybrid. F1’s are a first generation cross, and as
such they exhibit hybrid vigour. This is a phenomenon in animal breeding
referring to the fact that the first cross between two unrelated purebred
lines is healthier and grows better than either parent line. The hybrid
cross between these two parent breeds are terrific family dogs, friendly,
intelligent, affectionate and easy to train.
The first generation (F1) is the product of a Poodle crossed with a
Labrador / Golden Retriever. They are low shedding and are compatible
for most families with mild alergies.
The backcross (F1b) is produced by crossing a F1 with a Poodle again.
These dogs will have a higher success rate for non-shedding and are
recommended especially for families with moderate to severe allergies.
Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are very playful dogs and love to
fetch and retrieve. Although they do not require extreem amounts of
exercise, they do need regular exercise. A daily walk or romp in the back
yard will be just fine. They really enjoy the outdoors, hiking, swimming
and just being with their families. If your puppy is under one year old you
do not want to over stress them with too much exercise.
Standards will be 21-24 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh (females)
45-65 lbs and (males) 60-85 lbs when full grown.
F1’s are lower maintenance than the original pure breds. They will require
occasional brushing and baths. They will shed less than the Retriever but
more than the Poodle.
F1b’s generally require several clips a year, as their coats grow longer
than a F1. When kept clipped, they only need the occasional brushing and
baths. Longer fur will require regular brushing to keep it from getting matted.
