"Very few reputable breeders are producing F1s, for the simple reason that they are very unpredictable. Which is one of the benefits of multigens, lol.  There are no organiztions for breeders of F1s. There is a goldendoodle breeders…"

"Just a follow up to clarify some general questions I have. Are there reputable F1 labradoodle breeders out there? Multigen breeders are just listed on the ALAA website, but is there a listing for reputable F1 labradoodles? Or should I be staying…"

"ALAA deals only with Australian labradoodle breeders.  The dogs are described as multigen; which means multigeneration.  There is no back breeding to another breed, but only ALD (Australian labradoodle to Australian labradoodle). Some…"

"The whole point of getting an ALD is that there is more consistency in the coats and there is less likelihood of shedding than with earlier generations like F1s, etc. That's part of what you're paying for with an ALD.  As for color…"

"I am getting a better understanding of the process. So, when it comes to shedding it would be difficult to tell whether these dogs would shed since they are not F1, F2, F1B etc, As for size and color, a breeder would take a request or is it more…"

"Okay, so I just looked at the 4 MD breeders listed on the ALAA site, and they are definitely ALD breeders, no F1s, F2s, etc. You can forget about that with these breeders.  If you look at the upcoming litters on the website of the first MD…"

Karen & Jackdoodle replied to Steph's discussion Looking for a Labradoodle :)
"Most reputable breeders do not breed F2s, which are a breeding of an F1 to another F1. This combination is MOST likely to shed and is not recommended.. An F1B is a breeding of an F1 to a purebred Poodle, and that has the best chance of not…"

"Thank you. I understand. I'm contacting now the four breeders in Maryland. Some have replied, basically saying they don't have puppies available now, but if I want to put a deposit down, I can. I've now asked if the can recommend a…"

Karen & Jackdoodle replied to Steph's discussion Looking for a Labradoodle :)
"You don't have to put down a deposit just to talk to them and ask questions, though. Talk to them. Ask questions. Ask to visit. Ask to see health testing results. If they aren't receptive, that's probably not someone you want to buy…"

"I'd start with the 4 in MD and you can always "branch out" later if none of them is the right fit for you. "

Steph replied to Steph's discussion Looking for a Labradoodle :)
"Does anyone have a breeder they recommend in the Maryland area? I see there are four listed on the ALAA website. This seems like plenty to contact or should I be branching out even more? I would like to call each and explain that we are looking for…"

"Most good breeders will not have puppies available, they will have a waiting list for planned litters. So, the best thing is to research, chose a breeder you like and then apply to go on the waiting list, which usually also involves putting down a…"

Steph replied to Steph's discussion Looking for a Labradoodle :)
"I'm now just wondering how to go about looking for a puppy. I don't mind traveling a bit to a breeder. Obviously I can just put a deposit down with one breeder. Should I just base it on availability or wait for a breeder to have puppies…"
