How Much Do Goldendoodles Cost?

A goldendoodle, as the name implies, is a mix between a golden retriever and a poodle.  This combination and name was created in 1992 and have greatly risen in popularity since then.  Most goldendoodles have the color of a golden retriever with the coat of a poodle.  When purchasing a Goldendoodle, you might see letters and numbers such as F1, F2, F1B and F2B.  An F1 stands for “first generation” and means that the puppy is 50% golden retriever and 50% poodle. The F1B refers to as a “backcross goldendoodle” and means that an F1 goldendoodle has been bred with a golden retriever, making the puppy 75% poodle and 25% golden retriever.  F2 and F2B mean the same thing, but mean a second generation rather than first.  Second generation means that a goldendoodle is bred with another goldendoodle rather than a poodle with a golden retriever.  Like any other breed, the cost of a goldendoodle can depend on the age, size, geographical location and other factors.
