Doodles are fairly easy keepers however, they do need to be brushed regularly to remove dead/dying hair and prevent matting. A bath every few weeks/months can help keep their skin and coat in good condition, especially when they are groomed regularly between baths.
It is a good idea to trim the hair that grows over their eyes. Toenails should be trimmed as in any other breed. Professional groomers are available to perform any of these tasks that owners are not comfortable doing or just don’t want to do.
Matting is one of the biggest issues when it comes to grooming doodles of any breed. On the surface your doodle may look mat free, but once you get to the roots, that's where the issues begin.
You want to brush your dog at least three times a week to keep them, clean, mat free and beautiful. If you find small mats that cannot be easily brushed out it is okay to cut them off to prevent them from getting larger. If you can brush your Goldendoodle daily that is best. Start brushing and combing your puppy as soon as possible to help them become familiar with the process, they will become more and more comfortable with it.
Mats generally start behind the ears, under the collar, the tail and armpits. Prevention of the mats is easier than having to have the coat.
Your Dogs Ear Care
Your Goldendoodle may paw at his or her ears or shake their head quite a bit. Ear infections are very painful. You may notice that your Goldendoodle is rubbing his head against objects trying to relieve the pain. While your Goldendoodle is unable to directly speak to you, their body language is letting you know something is wrong.
It is also possible to mistake an ear infection for a tooth problem! So its very important to take your lovely hybrid to see your vet if you are witnessing the signs above. Your canine can lose its hearing if an ear infection is left untreated. The ears can become red and swollen. Skin infections can occur from constant scratching.
Sometimes your doodle may tilt his or her head to one side as well. Yeast infections can occur for multiple reasons. Dogs who do a lot of swimming at the lake can suffer from yeast infections within their ears because there is a lot of bacteria within the water itself. Yeast infections can be controlled with medicated ear drops provided to you by your vet.
If you notice any of the signs mentioned above going on with your Goldendoodle, please make sure to schedule a vet visit. Immediate treatment will prevent a simple problem from becoming worse.
Among the three coat types of the Goldendoodle dog, the curly coat doodle seems to have more issues with their ears. The simple reason? Hair growing deep within the ear canal traps moisture and can cause bacteria to grow. Most Goldendoodles also enjoy swimming. Whether at the lake, swimming pool or the beach, water can become your Goldendoodle’s enemy. The design of the ear itself, for the Goldendoodle dog, can be one of the problems they suffer these issues.
The fact that the Goldendoodle has multiple hairs covering the ear flap, is the perfect environment for creating ear infections! Bacteria thrives on moisture, especially in warm, dark, enclosed areas. Bacterial ear infections can cause your Goldendoodle tremendous pain and suffering.
Because the Goldendoodle has such thick, long, hairs over the tops of the ears, the ear itself has a difficult time drying out. It doesn’t help matters much if hairs are also growing from deep within the ear canal. The curly coat Goldendoodle seems to have more issues with hairs growing deep within the ear, which is very similar to the Poodle. The shaggy coat and the smooth coat Goldendoodle do not seem to have these issues, although they can still suffer from ear infections should moisture build up or a yeast infection occur. Another reason Goldendoodles can have ear infections is due to what is called, “ear mites”. These are pesky little bugs that leave brown matter within your doodle’s ears and can leave a very foul smell. Although ear mites can easily be killed with medicated drops, you will want your vet to ensure this is what is causing the problem before treating.
