What is an
F1B miniature labradoodle puppy?
An F1 generation means it is
a first generation mix breed, so our mothers
are all F1 mini labradoodles. And the B means
that the puppy is an offspring of a mini poodle.
In terms that the mother was bred back to a
poodle. Giving the puppies 3/4 poodle and 1/4
Does this mean that your mini labradoodles
will be more like the miniature poodle?
Not necessarily, they tend to carry
both traits. We do see a full hair coat with our
F1B puppies. We still see a difference in the
texture of curls or fleece as some people refer
to it. But with the way we are breeding we are
getting a fuller coat that sheds very little if
at all. We do however see an overall smaller size.
How big will a mini labradoodle get?
We are seeing a consistent size
of 20 to 30 lbs as an adult. Occasionally we
do have some that are smaller or larger but
not often. We can judge this upon how the puppy
grows and also the body length and leg height.
As with any puppy this tends to show more at
the 5-8 week ages. Some will have a thicker
bone which comes from the lab and some will
have the fine bone coming from the poodle.
Isn't this breeding to closely to the bloodlines
to multiply problems?
It could be if not done properly.
We are not breeding our mothers to the same
lines that they have in their family. Any dog
whether it is purebred or mix should not be
bred back to the parents. This does multiply
similar genetics. Our new poodle boys Gus and
Woodrow are not related to any of our original
lines that produced our Mini labradoodle mothers.
How can I tell what puppy would be a good
match for me?
The best way is to communicate
to us what you are wanting in a puppy. It is
a consideration on how big your family is how
active and the ages of the children. We may
not know at the young age but as they grow and
develop we can tell you things about their personality
and how they are growing to help you make the
