Doodle Generations

We know understanding the different doodle generations can be complex. We have made this page to make that process easier.

 In general, the further you move down the tree, the higher percentage of the doodle is poodle. This means that the dog is more likely to have poodle like hair, be nonshedding, and need regular grooming.

  But please remember that genetics can be random and sometimes puppies will take on the dominant traits of either Poodle, Golden Retriever, or Labrador Retriever no matter what label of generation. We have had super curly coats and flat coats come from lines that surprised us even after reviewing DNA tests. Below are some family trees explaining the generations and photos comparing different coats we have seen.

How It Works
Deposit and Application Explained

Complete Application

YOU MUST first complete our puppy application before placing a reservation deposit.
You can contact me, Dannette, at any of the following options with questions:
Phone- 563-568-8611,
Facebook at



We will review your application and reach out typically within 24 hours. After your application is reviewed we will contact you. We want to have a conversation with our buyers about their preferences for a future puppy and combine them with our knowledge of what puppies or litters have best suited families similar to yours. We will work together to decide which litter’s reservation list is best for you.


Once you have talked to a member of HermeierDoodles through any of the above routes of contact and solidified which litter is best for you, place your $400 dollar nonrefundable deposit. This deposit comes out of the final price of your puppy. This deposit is nonrefundable but if fewer puppies are born than families on the reservation list, your deposit can be moved to a different Hermeier Doodle litter. Reservations on a first come first served basis, and families are added to reservation lists in order of when their deposits arrived.
