Goldendoodle Breed Maintenance
The Goldendoodle can have either a shaggy Retriever like coat (this may not be hypoallergenic) or a loosely curled coat (hypoallergenic). As these dogs have a dense, double coat that is highly prone to matting or trapping of dirt. they require a lot of grooming. Generally, a professional trim is required every 8 to 12 weeks. With a Goldendoodle, you will need to to make sure that the fur around their eyes, hind end, footpads and ears are trimmed on a regular basis. As these dogs have floppy ears, you should monitor for ear infections particularly if your dog is a swimmer or is highly active. Goldendoodles should have their coats brushed with a slicker brush a few times a week in order to prevent mats from forming. As with all dogs, teeth cleaning should be done weekly when possible in order to prevent dental disease.
