I recommend once a week to brush through your Doodles coat to help keep them clean and remove dead hair if your doodle is kept in a short/medium length coat. If you keep them in a full coat they require daily brushing. Brushing is also a bonding process for the dog and their human. Trimming isn't necessary unless hair grows down over the eyes, in this case it should be trimmed to above eye level so the Doodle can see properly. Being a drop eared dog, ears should be cleaned once a week with an ear wash bought at your vets office. Nails should barley touch the floor if at all and be trimmed as necessary to keep them short. This is usually done if you take your dog to the groomers. I recommend a bath or visit to the groomers every 4 6 weeks depending on your family's lifestyle. We specifically breed and socialize our Goldendoodles with young children in mind. Our passion is raising puppies that do especially well in homes with young children. There is something so special about those memories created of growing up with your dog and the unconditional love they give.

They tend to be either more like a Golden or more like a Poodle in terms of temperament, coat, size, shedding propensities and hypo allergenicity. However, they do have what is called “hybrid vigor,” which makes them generally healthier than either of their parents or other purebred dogs of either ancestral breed. Hybrid vigor is what people refer to when they say that mutts are usually healthier than purebred dogs. First generation Goldendoodles are not good choices for people with allergies or other sensitivities to dogs. They really are true mutts, even though both parents theoretically come from pure but unrelated lines. First generation backcross F1B Goldendoodles come from first generation Goldendoodles bred to purebred Poodles.
