for those of you with a F1 doodle, do they shed?

Annabelle is an F1B and doesnt shed, we brush her and trim her.

When we got her, I looked for F1b's as I read they were most likely to not shed and I really wantd a non-shedder (shoulder issues = vacuming very hard)

Anyhoo - Im thinking of getting a 2nd doodle and was wondering if I shoudl stick with F1b or if F1's generally dont shed?????

Thanks for help !

TY for the info and yes your babies are cute even though they shed,
right now I have 2 shedders here - Annabelles cousins are here for 2 weeks, 5 yr old yellow lab Macy, and Emma - yellow lab/american bulldog mix about 16 -17 months

My F1 sheds too.... I have found out though that if I brush her with a universal slicker brush AFTER bathing her, when she is still wet, it will bring up additional loose hair and cut down the shedding.

Dakota, F1, sheds but we love him and forgive him! He does not shed nearly as much as our lab shed. And I comb Dakota every morning which really minimizes any shedding. If it helps, grooming is almost a non-issue. He combs out easily and has never had a single mat!

Max is an f1...he sheds ON and OFF ...he goes thru stages. i know that doesn't sound right.

peanut is a goldendoodle are doesn't shed but did blow puppy fur not too long ago. if i brush her daily all the hair is in the brush..

how do i know? max has black hair ...peanut's is red to cream. :D I sweep daily and vacuum once a week.

I would say even Max's shedding is nothing compared to labs,mastiffs, coonhounds, shepards, papillons, and so on.

Our F1 sheds. In comprison to a golden retriever, about 10-15% of the amount of hair. She does not provoke alergies in the 2 people we have tested her with.

Annmarie,
I think Huck takes after the golden more than the poodle in attitude, but his coat is very curly so a bit more poodle-y. He's much more leery of strangers than Sawyer is and he'll bark at people he has not yet met who try to enter our property until I tell him they are ok, then he tries to lick them to death!



Would this guy scare you away :?: :!:
