F1 vs. F1B Sheepadoodle What’s the Difference?

Although F1 Sheepadoodles and F1B Sheepadoodles can look very similar, they do not necessarily look alike.

Here, we will break down the key concepts you need to apply to understand the differences between the two most popular Sheepadoodle generations: the F1 vs F1B Sheepadoodle.

F1 Sheepadoodle is an even mixture between two different purebred dogs. The F1B Sheepadoodle coats can vary a bit, but not as much.

Coat Types

Both F1 and F1B Sheepadoodles can be non shedding. Any respiratory condition, such as asthma, can also be inflamed by the shedding of dog hair.


Because of the genetic variance of F1 Sheepadoodles, they aren’t sought after by people as much because their looks can be inconsistent.


F1bs get a bit of Hybrid Vigor boost compared to their parents, but it is greatly diminished since to produce an F1B, you must rebreed an F1 with their purebred kind.

Hybrid Vigor

Because F1B Sheepadoodles are likely to have the temperament of a poodle, they will typically be higher maintenance dogs. F1s, by comparison, require less maintenance.
