Hey. I'm new to this forum, and new to dogs all together. I'm allergic, though, but no asthma. Also, the dog would need to be mainly outdoors, though letting it in occasionally wouldn't be a problem. I checked out the AKC recommended dogs for people like myself. I tend to despise small, whiny dogs. I found a few dogs that I liked though, but most required too much pickiness and care.

One day, I stumbled upon the labradoodle/goldendoodle. It sounded perfect for me: nicely sized, better for allergenic people, and good temperaments. However, I have a few questions about them:

I'm aware of the F1/F1B classes, but what would be better, the labra- or the golden- for my criteria? Also, although I've talked to some breeders, are they okay for mainly outside dogs? During the winter, and as a pup, it would be fine to have them inside. During the day, however, no one is home. I'm still in school, my dad works, as does my mom. Of course, during the summer we'd be home.

Finally, is there that big of a difference in which breeder I choose? There are about four in my area, and they all seem fairly competent. Are there certain things I should be looking for in them?

Thanks a lot.
