Just to add to Lindas excellent explanation:

The multigens are exactly what they sound like, multiple generations of labradoodles bred to other non-related Multis. These dogs started being bred in Australia in the 1970s and many of them have a couple of other breeds in the mix as well, although they are usually MOSTLY lab and poodle (anyone remember the other breeds? I cant find it). The two major lines out of Australia are Rulant Manor and Tegan Park.

The breeders of the multis will breed back to a poddle when they want to "correct" a coat that is no longer very curly. The poodle hair is curly and non-shedding so usually the curlier the coat, the less shedding... although this rule DEFINITELY does not always hold true. There are some out there that are flat and dont shed and some that are curly and do! Some think that the "finer" coat will shed less, despite the curliness.

This site might help also:

If you are really worried about shedding and asthma/allergies I would recommend an F1b or a multigen.

Hope that helps!
