!There are a few different ways breeders are producing American Labradoodles.
F1 = 50% Labrador and 50% Poodle: This is Lab to Poodle cross; this is first generation, resulting in healthier offspring! Hair type can be smooth like a Lab, wiry like an Irish Wolfhound or wavy/shaggy; they can shed or not shed; pups in the same litter can vary.
F1-B = 25% Labrador Retriever and 75% Poodle (F1 Labradoodle and Poodle cross): This is Labradoodle bred back to Poodle, wavy curly shaggy look doodle very consistent in coat types. F1B is the MOST likely of any to be non-shedding and allergy friendly than ANY doodles and is the easiest coat to take care of and the most desired generation of doodle!
F2 = F1 Labradoodle and F1 Labradoodle cross: With this combination you get the same percentage of Lab Poodle mix as you would an F1 Labradoodle, so they are more likely to shed.
F3 = F2 Labradoodle and F2 Labradoodle cross
Multi-generation = F3 or higher generation Labradoodle and F3 or higher generation Labradoodle cross.
We began Goose Down Kennel on Facebook as a Group Page to allow our puppy families to allow them a place to post their photos and brags. We are not internet savvy people, and then made a Facebook Business page. We had to chose a name for our website, but, Goose Down Kennel was already taken. So we chose Only Doodles!
We are still the same people with the same dogs, same dedication, and same quality of care for our dogs, puppies and families.
The majority of calls we receive after a puppy goes home are from first time dog owners.
Puppies are babies.
You would not expect a human infant to not cry, not potty, not chew because they are teething, not want attention right when they want it.
All babies are work.
Puppies are used to the only environment they know, sleeping in a puppy pile, chewing on their littermates, and have never been alone.
Please remember how their little lives change in a very short period of time, how confusing and scary it would be to have so many changes so quickly.
Thankfully, puppies are super adaptable Be patient, and repetitious and consistent in your training.
It is imperative that puppies receive their full series of vaccinations after they go home and are not exposed to dog parks or unvaccinated and unknown animals prior to the final series at 16 weeks. Our babies health is of the upmost importance to us and we are entrusting you to keep them safe and healthy!

There are no bad puppies, even if they eat your shoes!!
Yes, within reason...

So why are Poodle and Riggs Puppies Black?
Poodle and Riggs ALWAYS have black coated puppies, the majority are blue (when you look at their skin it looks blue!) Yes, they are blonde and chocolate, but their genetic pairing creates the black puppy.
F1 and F1b Labradoodles are typically black, chocolate to muddy brown, and reddish brown to blonde.Basically one end of color wheel to the other.
They will have, sometimes,white blazes on their chest and face, white on their feet or tips of their tails.
But wait, there's more!
Their coat color and density change over the course of time. They lose their puppy coats, they may get more fleecey or more scruffy.
Lucy, is Riggs and Poodle's daughter.
She is an F1 Labradoodle (Poodle is always bred soley to Riggs) Lucy was pitch black when born, with bluing . Lucy now has a darkish coat with coarse white hair sparsed through and has rust colored highlights. We must get her groomed and her shedding is almost nonexistent.. And, all that happened in a year! She's 2 now.
I am seriously accommodating.
I am accommodating, because I've been that person wanting puppy pictures, videos and updates and have been made to feel like I was being demanding and a bother.
You are making a life altering purchase, you are excited and don't want to miss anything. You will never get an arrogant, know it all, condescending attitude from me.
I will send you pictures and videos. I will talk to you all day long about your puppy. I will treat you like you're special, because you are! You chose one of my babies!
