Lynda Kamrath has a sheepadoodle puppy.  Welcome to the group.

Comment by Dr Karen Hoving on January 2, 2017 at 7:26pm

Greetings all! I'm new to the group and new to doodles. Bella is a sheepadoodle and as of today is 5 1/2 months old. I'm  training her to work with my patients (I'm a shrink). She's too young, so I'm just getting her used to being around the patients. I'm (GASP) 58! A shrink with a twisted sense of humor. I'm looking forward to meeting you all- if anyone here has a sheepadoodle let me know! I only found 2 in the sheepadoodle group!

Baths...depending what she gets into( insert rolling eyes). Enzo probably balances out to one every 3 weeks or so. There have been times tho, she's gotten them on consecutive days.;)

F: I learned this first hand at the very first Doodle Romp we attended. Enz was maybe 5 months and she almost immeadiately found the mud and water at the dog park. Had a blast rolling around it! All the Doodleowners relayed this fact...let her dry, the mud will fall off on it's own! I'm thinking...yeah right! Sure enough, once she dried, the dirt literally fell off her!

When I worked in a grooming shop we used a mild, organic neem shampoo.  And we only had one client who came as often as monthly, a little Havanese.  Most every other client came every 8 to 12 weeks.

Also doodle coats shed mud when then dry, then brushing really cleans things up afterward.

Thank you, Mark. I will check with my vet- who sells only organic top of the line products, before proceeding with a weekly bath.

If you must bathe your dog frequently, use a mild shampoo, and do not use a hot dryer. Let the dog air dry as much as possible, or use a cool dryer setting. This will help prevent the skin getting too dry. 

To prevent the need for frequent bathing, it also helps if you do not use leave-in conditioners or grooming products. These can attract and trap dirt.

Comment by Mark Rostek on March 7, 2014 at 7:08am

The latest thought is that if you use a mild shampoo formulated for dogs, then it is perfectly OK to bathe weekly.   Our Dood can get very dirty from his job and just plain water from our hose can't get him clean. When this happens we have had to give him a shower each week.
