Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Hi guys. My daughter asked me this question today and I told her that I would check with my expert buddies. When will the adult coat start coming ? I know I saw it mentioned before but I can't recall at what age. Also when should she begin taking her pup to the groomers for professional grooming?
He looks soft.
It seems like the show poodle people can get some serious length to at least parts of the dogs coat, but in general I don't think the long shaggy look works for the poodles. I could get Ava's coat much longer. Maybe if I was a better groomer or more committed to taking them to the groomer every 2 -3 weeks I could get Maggie longer, but I think we're both pretty happy with her hair shortish.
I agree. Doodles have that everlasting puppy look. They are super cute. My next dog will definitely be a doodle. I love that they are so darn cute, smart, and not prissy as my son used to say. My son never wanted a toy dog because he was afraid that people would see him walking a prissy dog with hairbows. Fortunately for him both my fur girls were tomboys who hated hairbows and frills! However, since I have my Khloe and my daughter just got her doodle pup it will be some time before I get one.
Luna was SO soft, though I imagine that's partly because she basically had a retriever coat. Her coat was softer than some puppy coats, especially the ruff around her neck.
I could see that. That ruff looked so plush.
JD's coat was so thin; it was silky, but it wasn't thick or plushy enough to feel luxurious like that. Like you want to walk on it with bare feet, lol.
Yes! I used to bury my face in her neck/chest when she would have me. She wasn't much for spooning so I had to catch her in the right mood lol.
