Doodle Generations Explained
There are so many generations and types of Goldendoodles out there, it can sometimes be overwhelming to figure out which is which! Here is a brief explanation of some of the options out there.....
F1  Generation:
Golden Retriever X Poodle
This type of doodle can shed, whether it be medium shedding or light shedding. They tend to have a wavy to slightly curly coat. ( Elsa)
F1b Generation:
F1 Doodle X Poodle
This type of doodle is low, extreme low, or non-shedding. They tend to have a curlier coat than other generations of doodles. This generation is very friendly for allergy sufferers. (Cooper, Stella, Echo, Zara, Luna)
F2 Generation:
F1 Doodle X F1 Doodle
This generation can vary just like the F1 and F2b generation. Although there is a higher chance of Retriever coat genes/IC coming through and creating a doodle that looks like a Retriever and may/may not shed. 
(This is not a generation that we breed, for coat genetics reasons.)
F2b Generation:
F1 Doodle X F1b Doodle
This type of doodle, we can see a wide variety of coat types within a litter. We can see puppies with coats that range all the way from an F1 type to a super curly F1b type and everything in between. This is another allergy friendly generation when bred properly.
F3 Generation:
F1b Doodle X F1b Doodle 
(this would be the only way we would breed an F3)
F2 Doodle X F2 Doodle 
(we would not breed our F3's in this manner)

This generation can vary from a heavy wave to very curly. 
Another allergy friendly type when done correctly.

F1bb Generation:
F1b Goldendoodle x Poodle
This generation retains a high level of consistency. This is a highly allergy friendly generation where the puppies can have the highest degree of non-shedding if they ever shed at all. There can be some coat variety within a litter depending on the coat genetics of the parents.  (Gryffin, Mowgli)
Multi-Gen Doodle:
This is used to describe any type of doodle that is beyond second generation where the exact mathematical equation might not be equatable. 
F3, F1bb and F2b can be considered a multi-gen type of doodle since both are technically third generation.  (Benny)

Bernedoodle (F1):
Bernese Mountain Dog x Poodle
These are wonderful family pets who tend to have a lovely shaggy coat type. Just like their Goldendoodle counterparts above, there can be some variation on shedding levels ranging from moderate to low shed potential.    (Izzy)

F1b Bernedoodle:
F1 Bernedoodle x Poodle
Again like their Goldendoodle counterparts, this type of doodle is low, extreme low, or non-shedding.  This generation is very friendly for allergy sufferers. We see a wide range of coat types within this generation ranging from heavy waves to medium curl or strong curl.

Golden Mountain Doodle:
Bernedoodle x Goldendoodle
Bernese Mountain Dog x Goldendoodle
Due to the different ways of breeding this generation, you could see a wide range of coat types depending on the coat genetics of the parents.
