What Generation Of Goldendoodle's Do We Breed Here At Beyond Bliss Doodles?  We breed the MOST allergy friend, most non-shedding generations. We have F1b, F1bb and Multigen Goldendoodle Puppies.  Many families have allergy and shedding concerns. Our carefully chosen breeding pairs allows us to create puppies with very predictable, lowest to most non-shedding, most allergy friendly coats while maintaining the highly sought after, blocky retriever structure and amazing personalities that we strive for here at Beyond Bliss Doodles. There is no such thing as, nor could we guarantee a completely non shedding dog, even we human beings shed a few hairs daily and all types of puppies shed/loose their puppy coat. See  Goldendoodle Generations Explained (below) to better understand the generations.

Shedding and Allergies Explained: 

Here are two articles I recommend about shedding and allergies, regarding the importance of testing and carefully choosing a breeder Shedding and allergies and  hypoallergenic-marketing-scheme-or-truth,  by Ashton Kent. 

We do the proper testing which allows us to selectively breed our parents by knowing their furnishings, curl, and shed scores, making it possible for us to get the same low to no-shed, most allergy friendly results in our wavy or curlier F1b, or multigen Goldendoodles. Always consult  your allergist first if you have any concerns or severe allergies. Some people are allergic to protein found in saliva as well as dander.

 

Goldendoodle Generations Explained

F1 Generation-     Golden Retriever x Poodle. This is the result of crossing a Standard Poodle with a Golden Retriever to create a Goldendoodle. They can shed and coats within the same litter can vary greatly. They are a good choice for most people with mild allergies. Their coats can be wavy, slightly curly or smooth (looking more like a Golden Retriever).

F1b Generation  F1 Doodle x Poodle. These dogs are very low to non-shedding, are extremely allergy friendly and are highly recommended for people with moderate to severe dog allergies. Their coats are generally wavy, slightly curly or a relaxed curl.

F1bb Generation-   F1b Goldendoodle x Poodle. This generation retains a high level of consistency. This is an extremely allergy friendly generation where the puppies should be low to non-shedding if they ever shed at all. There can be some coat variation within a litter but expect some curls. They are highly recommended for families with any allergy concerns and  for those who don't want the shedding. Exact percentages of the F1bb poodle/retriever mix are theoretical. There is no guarantee that any generation will be an exact a mix of  50/50 or 75/25 or any other combination. With coat testing, proper knowledge, and choosing the correct pairing, a trustworthy breeder will be able to tell you wheather or not your puppy will be a shedder or how allergy friendly your puppy will be regardless of the amount of curl.
F2 Genertion-    F1 Doodle X F1 Doodle. This generation can vary just like the F1 and F2b generation. Although there is a higher chance of a Retriever gene coming through and creating a doodle that looks like a Retriever and may/may not shed. They are a good choice for those with mild allergies.
F2b Generation-  F1 Doodle X F1b Doodle. With this type of doodle, we can see variety of coat types within a litter. We can see puppies with coats that range  from an F1 type coat (wavy) to a loosely curled coat. They are allergy friendly.
F3 Generation: F1b Doodle X F1b Doodle (this would be the only way we would breed an F3) or F2 Doodle X  F2 Doodle. This generation can vary from a heavy wave to very curly. Another allergy friendly type.
MultiGen-   A multigen is the term used to describe any type if doodle beyond the second generation, for example an F1bb, F2b or F3, F3 to F1b, F2b to multigen etc.  Multigens retains a high level of consistency while incorporating more Golden Retriever (rather than poodle) traits and hybrid vigor back into their offspring with little to no shedding like the F1b. They are a perfect choice for those with allergy or shedding concerns. However, breeders must properly test and carefully pair their parents to make it possible to get the same low to no-shed, most allergy friendly results in both a wavy or curlier multigen. 
 

Goldendoodle Coat Types Explained-    We have dedicated an entire page to this topic. To obtain a better understanding, be sure to visit our page by clicking Goldendoodle Coat Types. Goldendoodles generally have  three different types of coats.  Wavy, curly, (resembling more of a standard poodle coat but with relaxed, looser curls) or a smooth coat, (resembling more of  the Golden Retriever look.). Because of the Standard Poodle, Goldendoodles come in a variety of colors including  black, red, golden, carmel, cream and brown.

 

Our Policies:

Our Guarantee: Our puppies come with a two year guarantee. Should the puppy develop a condition that our parents are tested for, and is shown by your veterinarian (and our vet confirms at buyer’s expense) to have a parental-tested defect that requires surgery, we will pay for the medical costs/surgery up to the purchase price of the puppy. The Buyer does NOT have to return the puppy to the Breeder. Should the dog be found to have Dysplasia before 24 months of age, Buyer must provide Seller with proof in the form of documentation from OFA. Expenses pertaining to testing, treatment and exams to confirm a diagnosis are the responsibility of the Buyer.

Deposits **How To Reserve A Puppy:  After your puppy application is approved, a $250.00 non- refundable deposit (or a $258 a non-refundable reservation fee/deposit if using PayPal, is required, because PayPal charges for service fees) must be sent to reserve the next available opening on our "in line" reservation list which is compiled according to the size of  the Goldendoodle  your wanting. Please refer to ** 'How Our Deposit/Reservation List Is Compiled' below for an explanation of the non-refundable deposit. We accept PayPal, personal checks or money orders for $250 for deposits only, (please make your check out to Nancy OConnor)  And mail it to: Beyond Bliss Doodles,  PO Box 391, Evans Mills, NY 13637. If using PayPal, you can log into your PayPal account and send a $258 non-refundable resrvation fee/deposit to BeyondBlissDoodles@gmail.com  The non-refundable deposit/reservation fee of $250 will be applied towards the total price of your puppy. The extra $8 charge (when using PayPal) is added as PayPal charges us for service fees. The E-sign Guarantee is required to be completed (online) at the time of the deposit. We notify families when we are expecting puppies and keep them informed of any new news throughout the pregnancy.

 

Final Payments:  We accept cash only for the remainder of the balance (minus the deposit), due when you pick up your puppy. Please remember, no personal checks will be accepted when you pick up your puppy.

In order to break up the trip, most famlies travel to our area (and stay overnight in a hotel) the day or evening before the puppies go home date. They then pick up their new puppy the next morning and travel back home.

How Our Deposit/Reservation List is Compiled:  We have an overall in line reservation list for each size goldendoodle that we offer. Each list is based on the order of the deposits received. We can give  you an estimated birthdate and estimated go home timeframe for the size your wanting.... (for example, a Summer birth and Fall go home time) and who we expect the parents to be. The deposit/reservation fee is refundable only if there is not enough puppies born in the litter or if there is not enough of the gender born that the buyer is wanting and the buyer does not want the other gender If the aforementioned scenario arises, you will have the option of receiving your deposit back, or moving your deposit forward to the next available opening on the reservastion list. The deposit/reservation fee is NOT refundable if there is a puppy available and the buyer changes their mind or for any other reason at any other time. When it's time to select your puppy, if you do not find a suitable puppy, your deposit can only be moved forward to another litter in our next available opening on the in line reservation list. Once the puppies are born, your choice of gender on your application cannot be changed unless one is available (however, you'd move to the bottom of that litter list for the opposite gender). If you selected 'no preference' on the gender choice on your application, you will be asked to commit to a gender, according to the in line list, once the puppies are born. Should the sale be terminated by the Breeder, your deposit/reservation fee will be returned to you.

How Puppies Are Selected:  We don't pick out your puppy or allocate a puppy for you......Instead, in order to assure the best possible match between our puppies and their families, we approach puppy selection process by making it a JOINT effort, that INCLUDES our puppy families in the decision making. By monitoring and evaluating them every day, we see traits that would place them in the most appropriate home. We offer suggestions based on the preferences you are seeking in a puppy (personality, size, color, coat texture etc.), as well as what you tell us about your family, in order to help you make an informed decision.  We as breeders know our puppies and our breed the best, so we feel its important for us to work WITH families to choose the best puppy, rather than let a family choose based solely on emotions, ........ like "this puppy likes me" (because they all like everyone, they're puppies and this is a happy breed!), or "that's the quiet one" (they are all quiet sometimes and they all get the 'puppy crazies' at other times!!). Or ....."I want the puppy to pick me" or "I want to pick the puppy that I feel a bond with" (the bonding process occurs with any puppy once he or she enters your home). Goldendoodles are such loyal, kind and loving dogs. They get along with all people and pets.

After the puppies are born, you will get newborn pictures and notification of the selection order, (based on the order of the deposits received and gender you selected on your application), as well as the go home date for the puppies. If you selected 'no preference' on the gender choice on your application, you will be asked to commit to a gender, according to the in line list, once the puppies are born.  In order to protect our puppies, we are not able to allow visitors to view or interact with our puppies before they have been vaccinated and are ready to go home.  In lieu of this,  families receive newborn puppy pictures as well as new pictures and updates of the puppies progress at 2, 4 and 6 weeks of age so you can follow them as they grow as well as answers to any questions you my have along the way. (Once they are 2 weeks old, each puppy will all be assigned a colored collar that they will wear until they go home so that you can easily identify them). Puppies cannot go home until 8 weeks of age. You must not visit another breeder, canine care facility, pet store or shelter on the same day that you come.

Once the puppies are six weeks old and we have had the oppportunity to asscess their temperaments, sizes, coat types and energy levels, we call each family on the reservation list (in the order of deposits received by gender), and answer any questions you may have in order to help you make the best choice in selecting the puppy that best fits your family. We ask that you choose your puppy at that time (when we call you). Once your selection is made, we will call the next family in line and so on. If we don't hear back from you or cannot reach you for your decision within 24 hours, we will be happy to pick your puppy for you based on what we feel best meets your families needs and preferences. If you commit to a litter and change your mind on a puppy from that litter, you can move your deposit forward to the next available opening on our in line reservation list. Puppies go home at eight weeks of age.

We reserve the right to first pick from any litter and the right to refuse sale of any puppy at any time should we feel we are not able to meet the buyers needs or that buyer is not a good fit for one of our puppies. Should the sale be terminated by the Breeder, your deposit/reservation fee will be returned to you.

Spay & Neuter Policy:  Our puppies are sold on a STRICT spay/ neuter contract, meaning that you do not have permission to breed one of our dogs. Your puppy must be spayed or neutered before 10 months of age and proof must be sent to us.

No Visitation Policy:   Parvo virus is extremely contagious, resistant to most disenfectants and can survive on objects and surfaces for up to two years. Puppies are not born with fully developed immune systems and are very susceptible to life threatening illnesses like Parvo until they are fully vaccinated. Infection can occur directly or indirectly through contact with infected dogs (or asymptomatic infected dogs or cats that are carriers) or through indirect contact with contaminated surfaces or objects. Your feet, clothing or tires can then contaminate our property if you've come in contact with an infected virus of this sort. 

In order to protect our puppies, we do not allow visitors to view or interact with our puppies before they have been vaccinated and are ready to go home. If you are wanting to look to choose a puppy, you will have to wait until they are 8 weeks old, if there are any available to see. 

Here is a link to Revival Animal Health's Article written by Dr. B, explaining why limiting public access is crucial to our puppies health. Our number one priority is protecting our puppies. Educating Visitors On Biosecurity  

You must not visit another breeder, canine care facility, pet store or shelter on the same day that you come. 

What if I cannot pick up my puppy when you say they are scheduled to go home?  If you need us to keep your puppy beyond our scheduled going home date, we will charge a boarding fee of  $30.00 per day plus the cost of any vaccinations or wormings that are needed.  This fee is due to the individualized attention 8 week old  puppies require, sometimes day and night  on potty training and crate training etc. There is a 1 week limit on boarding and yur puppy balance must be paid in full before 8 weeks of age in order for us to board your puppy.

FAQ's:

The Difference Between An English Teddy Bear & An American Goldendoodle   The  English Teddy Bear Goldendoodle has one parent that is an English Cream Retriever and the other parent is a  Standard Poodle . Our English Goldendoodles are from  true European lines.They  have a stockier, more square build and a blockier head.Their coats tend to have  a "teddy bear" look to them which is where the name came from.

The American  Goldendoodle has one parent that is an American Golden Retriever, which you are probably more familiar with, and the other parent is a Standard Poodle.  Their coats tend to be golden, reddish or cream in color, but can also be  black or brown.English Teddy Bear and American Goldendoodle puppies are equally intelligent, sweet and adorable. Because we only breed F1b goldendoodles, all of our puppies will have soft, fluffy coats.

Hybrid Vigour  Goldendoodle's  get their name from their mixed heritage - So they are a hybrid dog, a first generation cross, and as such they exhibit what is known as "hybrid vigor". This is a phenomenon in animal breeding referring to the fact that the first cross between two unrelated purebred lines is healthier and grows better than either parent line. The puppies take on the best traits of both breeds. The hybrid cross between these two parent breeds are terrific family dogs, friendly, intelligent, affectionate and easy to train.

Characteristics  Their ancestry along both parent lines is as hunters and water dogs. The Golden Retriever in them allows them to enjoy games that involve retrieving. The physical appearance of the Goldendoodle runs anywhere from a shaggy-looking retriever to a curl-relaxed poodle, but usually it falls somewhere in the middle. The color of the coat can be cream, gold, apricot, red, chocolate and black. They are medium-sized family dogs with easy dispositions. Like many poodle crosses, they inherit the coat qualities of the poodle. This means that many don't shed, or shed lightly, and should be hypo-allergenic.

Temperament  Goldendoodles  are an intelligent and obedient family companion. They are everybody's friend and devoted to their family. They are friendly towards children, other dogs and pets, and easy with strangers. They are social dogs, happiest when with people. Their intelligence, eagerness to please, and love of learning make them very easy to train. They are medium-sized family dogs with easy dispositions.

Health  As a hybrid cross, they grow healthier and live longer than either parent line. The  genetic diseases they can be prone to would be those shared by the Golden Retriever and the Standard Poodle. These include - congenital heart disease, hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, vWD  and cataracts. BE SURE  you purchase your puppy from a reputable breeder who does health testing on their parent dogs. This will save you money in vet bills both now and in the futute, not to mention heartache!

Exercise Requirements Goldendoodles require a mild to moderate amount of daily exercise. The Golden Retriever in them allows them to enjoy games that involve retrieving.


Life Expectancy  They can live up to around  12-14 years.


Grooming   They will inherit a coat  that looks retriever-like, or poodle-like, but usually something in-between. Like many poodle crosses, many don't shed, or shed lightly, and could be hypo-allergenic. They generally require little grooming.
 As more and more people live in the city, needs have changed. Many are  looking for wonderful companions. The need for dogs who are playful, friendly towards people and pets, easy to train and easy to maintain has spurred breeders to cross breed two of the most intelligent and popular breeds of our time.
