The Goldendoodle is easily one of the cutest and most attractive dogs you’ll ever meet. It’s the fluffy waves and curls of their coats that makes them so irresistible. That’s why it’s important to care for your Goldendoodle’s coat to keep your Goldendoodle looking great!
Goldendoodles and Goldendoodle puppies are fairly low-maintenance when it comes to grooming. You will want to take your Goldendoodle into a groomer every once in a while. Some prefer to take their Goldendoodle to see a groomer every month, while others wait 2 months, 3 months, or sometimes longer between visits to a professional groomer.
Goldndoodle grooming frequency largely depends on preference and the things that you do to care for your Goldendoodle in between grooming appointments. Here are a few tips to keep your Goldendoodle looking great in between trips to the groomer.
Be sure to brush your Goldendoodle!
Most Goldendoodles do not shed, or shed very lightly. While this helps make grooming easier it doesn’t mean that you can skip brushing altogether.
Brush your Goldendoodle’s coat to prevent tangles and matting at least once a week. The more often you brush your dog’s coat, the easier it is to prevent tangles and keep your Goldendoodle looking great.
It sometimes takes dogs a while to warm up to brushing, but your Godlendoodle will grow to love it!
How often should you give your Goldendoodle a bath?
This largely depends on how often you groom your Goldendoodle, how fond your Goldendoodle is of rolling around in the dirt, and your personal preference.
You can bathe your Goldendoodle each week, each month, or as needed. As with brushing, the more regularly you bathe your Goldendoodle, the easier it is to keep your Goldendoodle looking great!
Remember to brush your Goldendoodle before bath time. This can help keep matting and tangles from forming in your dog’s coat.
What about those claws?
A great way to keep your Goldendoodle’s nails trim is by taking him for daily walks on pavement. This helps file the nails down, and keeps them from getting out of control.
You can also clip your Goldendoodle’s nails, but this can be stressful for some dog owners. You need a special pair of clippers, you have to be careful to avoid cutting the quick (which is difficult or impossible to see because it grows in the nail and can bleed a lot), and most dogs don’t enjoy the process.
This is one of those things that you can leave to the groomers.
