Hi Jan, I apologize, I missed your other post somehow.

I am not sure that I have any answers for you, except to say that some Labradoodles will always shed, some will shed until they are about a year old (when they blow their puppy coat...although the coat makes many changes in between then too) and some don't shed much at all.

If your puppy is an F1, then you will be guessing for quite some time. F1Bs and higher are more predictable, but not always...I had one throw-back in my F1B litter and he looked just like a Lab and he did shed a lot when he was tiny...although I noticed that his coat thickened and lengthened and stopped I don't know for sure what his coat will do.

You can't even really tell by looking at siblings or parents...every puppy is different. But, the reason that F1B and higher are more predictible is because they have more Poodle.

The difference between my F1 females and my F1B puppies' coats are texture and richness.

I wish that I could say that there is a predictible pattern for you...but there isn't. You just have to play it out and see what happens.

Brush him a lot, that should help the shedding problem.

Sorry that I can't help much...maybe someone else will have better insight on this issue. Good luck!
