Goldendoodle coats are not as easy a decision to choose as you may think. Black, brown, tan, apricot, cream and gold.
Every Goldendoodle coat and color is different, distinct, and Doodle*tastic…
Honestly? I had absodoodletutely no idea about this when I started searching for Harley, but I learned later #studentofdoodleology
I remember Leo at 6 months of age with an apricot coloring. His father was a dark rich cooper penny red blend. By the time he was a year old, he was white as a ghost – all over.
Jaxson’s “Poodle Papa” was also copper red – bright in fact. He remained tan most of his first year. A faint trace of tan coloring on the back of his ears is all that remains.
While this seemed strange to me as I watched Harley’s tan tints lighten right before my very eyes, I looked and waited for the change with Leo and Jaxson.
Goldendoodles rarely remain the same color as they grow into adulthood. It’s quite common for their color to lighten. I think Jaxson had the most dramatic change of them all…
Unlike the many varieties of colors, there are three coat types –
- Wavy/Shaggy – this is the most common found in all types of generations*
- Curly – second most common – found more in F1B Goldendoodles* because of the poodle lineage
- Straight – least common and often referred to as the Golden Retriever coat
Harley is considered curly, while Jaxson is definitely wavy/shaggy (as was Leo).
HYPOALLERGENIC DOG BREED –
The term “hypoallergenic dog breed” is commonly used to refer to a crossbreed that is more compatible with allergic people than other breeds. wiki
THE MYTH –
Claims about the existence of hypoallergenic dog breeds may have been fueled by unsubstantiated articles on the internet.
SCIENTIFIC FINDINGS –
All dogs shed, and all dogs produce dander and saliva to some degree. Breeds that shed less are more likely to be hypoallergenic. The amount of the allergenic protein present on the dander and in the saliva varies by breed.
How hypoallergenic a particular dog is for a particular person may vary with the individual dog and the individual person.
*Stick around for the letter “G” for a look into “generations”
