Because this a newer breed and not yet several generations deep, the offspring pups may vary in their appearance and personality depending upon the breeder's choice of Borderdoodle mates. For example, if you were to breed an F1 that exhibited more traits towards the Poodle with another of the same, you will likely end up with a dog that leans more towards a Poodle.
This is not necessarily a bad thing at all. However, the ideal goal seems to be to seek out pure 50/50 attributes of the Border Collie and Poodle. Of course, years down the line and many generations deep we believe that the Bordoodle/ Borderdoodle will end up being F2.
This is how all of the other breeds in the world have ultimately come to be.
An F1b Borderdoodles are sought after for their more poodly appearance. Their coat may be a bit more curly and they may be more likely to be hypoallergenic and non shedding. Of course this means that their personality my lean a bit more towards the Poodle.
