Maybe a cuddly and cute Goldendoodle puppy just joined your family, maybe you’re thinking about getting a Goldendoodle puppy, or maybe you’re just curious about their beautiful, hypoallergenic coats — whatever the reason, you want to know how often a Goldendoodle needs to be brushed.
Ideally, you should brush your Goldendoodle every day. This isn’t necessary for Goldendoodles kept at a very short clip, or Goldendoodles with straight coats. However, the longer and curlier your Goldendoodle’s fur, the more often you should brush him.
Minimum maintenance for a Goldendoodle
There are three main types of Goldendoodle coat: wavy, straight, and curly. Straighter coats are the easiest to maintain. Wavy coats require more maintenance than curly coats, but are still easy to maintain. Curly coats require the most maintenance.
You should brush a Goldendoodle no less than once a week. This helps remove tangles, dirt, oils, and debris, and keeps your Goldendoodle’s coat clean and tidy. Brushing your Goldendoodle twice a week prevents mats and keep your dog’s coat healthy.
While weekly brushing can be fine for Goldendoodles with straight coats, only brushing once a week isn’t enough for Goldendoodles with curly coats.
You should brush a Goldendoodle with a curly coat every day.
Other things to consider with Goldendoodle grooming
- Regular brushing helps your Goldendoodle get used to being brushed. This makes it easier to brush your dog, and it makes for an easier time at the groomers.
- Start brushing your Goldendoodle as a puppy. The younger your dog is when you start brushing, the more comfortable he will be with the process.
- Brush your Goldendoodle after he gets dirty. If he has burrs and brambles in his fur after a hike, or if he found a nice mud puddle to play in after a rain, take the time to clean his coat.
- Brush your Goldendoodle before and after baths. This helps prevent matting and tangling.
