Basic Grooming Tips for Your Dog

Dog Grooming is an important part of keeping your pup healthy. It also keeps them looking good, which we all know is a big deal when you have a beautiful dog. You should learn the grooming basics even if you regularly take your pup to a professional groomer. Let’s look at two key things you can do on your own.

The first grooming tip is to brush your dog at least two to three times a week. This keeps their fur from getting tangled and matted and leaves them looking neat and clean. The post below has details:

Blue Ridge Goldendoodle Puppies

You want to brush your dog at least three times a week on average depending on coat type to keep them, clean, mat free and beautiful. If you find small mats that cannot be easily brushed out it is ok 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. You should start by brushing your Goldendoodle with the slicker brush. Read more at I Love My Goldendoodle…

Brushing your dog also helps to keep them from feeling itchy and uncomfortable. So, brush your doodle often to keep them happy.

The second step is washing and drying your doodle. You may be surprised to learn that it’s recommended that you bathe your dog after brushing. Wash with a soothing dog shampoo and rinse well to avoid any long-term skin irritation. Learn more about bathing your pup here:

 

I can’t state this too many times: WATER MAKES MATS WORSE. You should always brush your Goldendoodle BEFORE the bath, with one slight exception. High-velocity dryers can help blast apart mats and make them easier to brush out. I need to emphasize that this won’t work with just any dryer. It must be a professional-grade high-velocity dryer… Apart from brushing your Goldendoodle before the bath, the best tip I can give for bathing your dog at home is to rinse, rinse, rinse. Shampoo residue can cause white flakes at best and skin infections at worst, so even when you think your Goldendoodle is well-rinsed, keep rinsing for another couple of minutes to be sure. The longer your dog’s fur is, the harder it will be to rinse out all the shampoo and/or conditioner. Read more at Canine Weekly…

It’s also important to remember that regularly washing and brushing your dog helps you keep an eye out for pests that can live on them, like fleas and ticks. This can be a true matter of life and death. Less important, but nonetheless beneficial, is the fact that your home will stay cleaner when your doodle is clean. The good news is the more frequently you groom your dog, the less time each instance takes. So, take heart during those lengthy first attempts and stick with it.

Good Reasons To Get A Puppy

When you’re on the hunt for a new dog, it’s customary to ask some key questions. How much does it shed? How easy is it to train? And, perhaps most important of all, can I be certain that it’s healthy? We like to help with these answers at Fur Babies Pet Resort

Great Hair

Blue Ridge Goldendoodle Puppies

One of the first things you’ll love about the Goldendoodle is its soft, luxurious coat that’s perfect for cuddles. They also shed very little, as a general rule, which makes it easier for people with allergies to own them.

Some Goldendoodles are hypoallergenic and most don’t even shed, making them great for handlers with allergies, or those who want to avoid constantly picking up the vacuum. Read more at The Spruce Pets…

Since they shed less, they also don’t make a big mess all over your furniture. This means your sofas, chairs, bed coverings and more are a lot easier to keep clean.

Fast Learners

Blue Ridge Goldendoodle Puppies

Poodles and Golden Retrievers are among the most intelligent of all dog breeds. They pass their smarts along to their Goldendoodle offspring, who, as a result, are easier to train than most varieties of dogs. They also have an innate desire to please because they love to be praised and gushed over. So, don’t worry too much if your doodle pup is a little rambunctious. With proper training and a little maturity, he or she will become a wonderful dog.

Most goldendoodles limit their barking to the times when they feel threatened, when you walk in the door after being gone a while, or to let you know that they need something- Even if the other dogs in the neighborhood are barking. Read more at Green Garage Blog…

Blue Ridge Goldendoodles are second to none. All our puppies are intelligent, vet certified for good health and socialized to ensure the best temperaments.

Loving & Loyal

Because of their ability to learn and desire to please, Goldendoodles make great service dogs. Their emotional intelligence is another trait that makes them perfect for helping others. They are very good at reading moods and will always try to care for their owners.

Goldendoodles were originally bred as service dogs, and therefore have everything it takes to serve as a service animal for disabled adults and children alike. Read more at Everthing Doodle…

On top of everything else we’ve discussed, Goldendoodles are also very athletic. They can easily keep up with an active individual or family and they adore playing with children and other dogs.

A Handful of Goldendoodle Facts That Might Interest You

Goldendoodles are an adorable breed of dogs who are exploding in popularity for several reasons. Sometimes referred to as live teddy bears, this crossbreed of the Golden Retriever and Poodle is prized for its loving personality, intelligence and desire to please. Interestingly, there are some facts about them that you may not be aware of.

For instance, there is a type of Goldendoodle, identified by their atypical coat, that’s getting more attention of late. Learn more about them in the following post:

SMOOTH, STRAIGHT, FLAT –

I’ve read articles and have seen this particular coat type described three ways – smooth – straight and flat.

Of the three types of coats found on a Goldendoodle – I believe the straight coat is the rarest of them all. However, Goldendoodles with straight coats are becoming very popular.

Straight coat Goldendoodles rarely occur in F1 or F1B generations. They’re more common in F2 and F2B generations. Referred to as the “Golden Retriever coat” – they are very easy to maintain and require minimal brushing.

There’s no “Teddy Bear” look nor will they have the “beard” around the muzzle, They will not show any signs of “crimping” or curl on the forehead. Their coat is silky smooth and classified as low to moderate shedding. Read more at Groovy Goldendoodles…

Next time you go out looking for Goldendoodles, don’t be surprised if you meet one without the “teddy bear” appearance.

Another interesting fact that might change soon as they rise in popularity is described in the following post:

The Goldendoodle origin is one of design, not evolution. The Goldendoodle breed is a super-pet, an intentional crossbreed of two of the most intelligent dog breeds, the Golden Retriever and Poodle. Basically the Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking offspring-equivalent of the dog world!  That may be an exaggeration, but one we are willing to make in order to get our point across. Goldendoodles are smart!

Goldendoodles are not recognized by the AKC as an official dog breed, but if their popularity continues to rise we wouldn’t be surprised to see them get a nod, or at least consideration, in the near future. In addition to their general intelligence, the Goldendoodle is becoming well known for their hypoallergenic coats. Although not all examples of the Goldendoodle breed exhibit this characteristic. Read more at Broadway Puppies…

The fact that they are not recognized by the AKC has not made them any less popular. In fact, their outstanding characteristics have made them a must-have for many families.

When it comes to grooming, although they are a low-shedding breed, Goldendoodles still need proper grooming. There are many ways to do this and the following post highlights them in detail:

Names of Goldendoodle Haircut Styles

The Puppy Cut

If you have already looked at this style as a possibility, then you might have come across its alternate name: the Teddy Bear Cut.

And as we all know, Goldendoodles have that irresistible teddy bear look. You just want to throw your arms around them and give them a big teddy bear hug.

This cut is poplar for many of the longer-haired breeds such as Shih Tzus, Pomeranians and Bichons. But it works equally well on Goldendoodles. Read more at DGCO…

Temperament

Goldendoodles are highly intelligent and energetic dogs having inherited many of their parent breed’s traits both in looks and personality which includes the fact they are highly intelligent, extremely affectionate while also being patient and gentle.

They are also very playful by nature and love nothing more than being in a family environment where they are included in all that goes on around them. Read more at Pets4Homes…
