Do labradoodles need grooming?
Yes, if your Labradoodle has a wavy or curly coat that doesn’t shed, they should be regularly groomed.
Most Labradoodles are great for people who have pet allergies and are non-shedding since they contain a lot of Poodle hereditary qualities.
Understanding The Labradoodle Coat
Coat Type. Australian Labradoodles have three broad coat types, namely, wool, fleece and hair. Each looks and feels very different, so it is important to understand the differences between them.
The Fleece textured coat is a soft texture as in the Angora goat.
The Wool coat is similar to a poodle texture and feel. It does require regular grooming and combing.
The hair coat has odor and sheds in varying degrees. (we don't have any hair coat at Brightstar Labradoodles).
Labradoodle grooming isn’t difficult, but it does take time. They have coats that will require a regular brushing and grooming routine. The downside of having a nonshedding Labradoodle is you have to groom your dog’s hair all of the time since it doesn’t fall out.
You prevent labradoodle Matting by frequently brushing them. You brush them a lot. You need to brush out tangles from the skin out to the tip of the hair. Many brushes only touch the outer surfaces of the hair and your dog might look nice, but still could have painful mats sitting close to the skin.
Shorter fur is much easier to keep mat free than longer fur. Longer fur requires much more effort on your part to keep your Doodle mat free.
When do you groom a Labradoodle puppy?
Generally, Labradoodle owners wait between 4 and 6 months to groom their Labradoodle puppy coat. This is because puppy coats don’t get as many mattes and tangles as the adult coat. In addition, this allows your Labradoodle to get all the necessary vaccinations needed to go to a groomer.
