“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” -Josh Billings
Goldendoodles are assigned a generation number to describe a new litter of puppies – the most common being F1, F1B, F2, or F2b. Regardless of generation, golden doodles have a consistent record of being extremely intelligent, easily trained, and most importantly, having a loving, friendly, outgoing temperament. The generation of the Goldendoodle is important because it impacts several of it’s characteristics, especially shedding. If you or your family members have allergies, and want your doodle to be hypoallergenic, it’s important to understand the differences between doodle generations.
First generation Goldendoodles identified with the letters “F1.” These puppies are bred from a pure golden retriever and a pure poodle, making the resulting doodle 50% poodle and 50% golden retriever. F1 doodles possess all of the wonderful traits that make retrievers and poodles such desirable pets. This includes incredible intelligence, a loving demeanor, and hypoallergienic qualities. However, due to the fact that they are 50% retriever, most F1 Goldendoodles shed lightly to moderately. This makes them better for homes with only slight or moderate allergies. F1 doodles tend to have a shaggy or wavy coats, but can occasionally have a very curly coat.
When an F1 doodle is cross-bred with a poodle, the term “F1B” is used to describe resulting offspring. An F1B Goldendoodle is 25% retriever and 75% poodle. This generation has become the most popular generational breed for those looking for the most hypoallergenic dog. F1B Goldendoodles are non-shedders 99% of the time, thus making them the most hypoallergenic of all the doodle generational breeds. F1Bs are the best option for families with moderate to severe allergies. Even though F1B doodles are technically 75% poodle, they still benefit from the amazing retriever genes and characteristics that most people are looking for in a family pet. They are known to exhibit the same favorable personality traits and behaviors as F1 doodles with the exception of shedding!
As for coat types, F1B doodles tend to have much more variety - from long and wavy to short and curly. F1B doodles came in a wide range of colors depending on their family pedigree.
At Saratoga Goldendoodles, we are committed to providing quality Goldendoodles. We strive to produce puppies with the very best temperaments and personalities, and the health and overall condition of our puppies is a top priority. All of our puppies come with a two-year health guarantee, have been vet-checked, have received their first shots and have been wormed on a regular basis.
We provide thorough socialization, as all of our puppies are raised in our home with our four children, our four goldendoodles and one bernedoodle furbabies, and loving extended family. Our puppies will be exceptional due to our high standard breeding methods, the intensive level of care we provide, and most importantly, the tremendous love we have for these amazingly intelligent, sweet, and loving furbabies.
We take great care in matching you with the right puppy. So, if you would like more information about our puppies, please fill out the puppy application on our website. We will call you to discuss your preferences and our upcoming litters.

If you are interested in a puppy, please fill out a puppy application and email it back to us at email@example.com
If your application is accepted, you must put down a deposit to hold your place to choose a puppy. The deposits are NON REFUNDABLE (some exceptions do apply and will be determined by Saratoga Goldendoodles.) We will, however, refund the deposit if there is only one puppy left to choose from and this puppy is not a good match for your family! If this occurs you can switch your deposit to another puppy or litter, or we will refund the deposit for you. We do understand all too well that lives change and sometimes getting a puppy needs to wait. So if you are unable to take a puppy when we call, you may use your deposit for a future litter or depending on the circumstances, at our discretion, we may refund your deposit. We do reserve the right to refuse sale to any person whom we feel is not the best choice for one of our fur-babies. Please see the "Right of Refusal" section below.
As soon as our puppies are born, I call all of the families on the deposit list. People chose their puppy in the order that their deposits arrived and based on our recommendations. We ultimately will decide if a puppy you are thinking of choosing is a best fit. We also reserve the right to hold certain puppies for individuals that have health related concerns (severe allergies, anxiety, autism, to name a few) that require a certain type of coat or personality. When I get to your name on the list, I’ll let you know which spot you are in….You can opt to take that spot or wait on another litter. Once you reserve your spot, you can watch the puppies grow through the pictures that we send each week.
At around 7-8 weeks of age, the puppies are ready to go home!! Families will come in, one at a time according to their deposit order. You’ll be able to play with the puppies and mom, ask questions, and decide which little angel to take home! Should you come and not fall in love with one of our fur-babies or find the right match, you can choose to pass to another litter. The remainder of the purchase price is paid on the day the puppy is picked up or delivered to you. Yo
Cost of puppies ranges depending on type of doodle, coloring, and size. Prices will range from $3000-$4000
Our puppies come with a 2 year health guarantee against genetic issues.
