Known for their hypo-allergenic fur, the Goldendoodle’s coat is why many seek after the breed. But, hypo-allergenic & non-shedding doesn’t always mean low maintenance.
When left unattended, a Goldendoodle’s undercoat can get matted and painful for your pet. Every dog loses their puppy fur to grow in their adult coat. For Goldendoodle puppies, this poses a challenge.
If not brushed frequently, the puppy’s non-shedding fur gets matted in with the adult fur at the follicle, causing discomfort, which translates into excessive scratching. A quick solution to this is using a slick brush a few times a week.
Here is one of our favorites.
All of our Doodles of NC puppies are brushed from just a few weeks old so they grow fond of the one-on-one bonding time. Who doesn’t love a back scratch - right?!
If your doodle’s coat becomes fluffy after brushing, a simple water - or children’s detangler - spritz & pat brings those coils right on back!
In addition to brushing, our puppies learn to love bath time.
Using a tear-free or mild dog shampoo allows you to bathe your doodle as frequently as every week without drying out their fur.
