Grooming.

Goldendoodles are fairly easy keepers.

Because Goldendoodles don't shed profusely, they do need to be brushed regularly to remove dead and dying hair and prevent matting.

A bath every few months can help keep their skin and coat in good condition, especially when they are groomed regularly between baths.

✔️

At a minimum, it's advised to bathe your dog at least once every three months.

You can wash your dog as frequently as every other week (with gentle shampoo, it could be even more frequent).

When in doubt, use your judgment — if your dog starts to smell, it's probably time for a bath.

✔️

So for the first six months a very simple grooming regime of regular brushing sessions of 10 minutes or so, four to five times a week should keep your puppy in good order.

✔️

Although it depends mostly on the breed, hair length, and type of coat, regular grooming should be done about once a month.

For young puppies and dogs who have never been groomed, more frequent grooming or brushing at home should be done to get the dog used to being handled and to avoid grooming issues into adulthood.

✔️

For dogs with longer or thicker hair, bathing should be limited to once a week or once every two weeks.

Brushing should occur at least every other day, if not daily.

For dogs with shorter or thinner coats, they can typically go a little longer for baths, more like once a month.

Curly and wavy coats – These breeds are the most likely to mat.

Any hair longer than half an inch should be brushed at least twice a week, and hair longer than an inch should be brushed daily.

These dogs require grooming every four to six weeks to prevent severe matting.
