Oliver was dark mahogheny (?) when he was a pup and now he is a lighter brown. Coat texture has changed from shiny to more wirey

Welcome Back Karen!  Oliver is F1B and I had him clipped way down. His coat is now about 2" long, never ever sheds but is matting like crazy. I bathe him every 2 wks. due to Florida sand and dust but does anyone have an idea?  Does a longer coat hold up better. Coat took major change from 6 month - smooth to 1 yr. wavy and now 4 yrs curly and greyed out with coarser grey on top...BUT matts all over?

All three of my Doodles have a different coat.My black has a silky coat,then I have a curley coat and when he was little it was silky,then we have a courser coat and hers has stayed that way. No mats only around her ears. I leave all in long coat,then just a little shorter in the summer. I like the shaggy look.

BTW I couldn't find my discussion listed above so had to respond on the comment area.

I love Neely's coat and he sheds very little, But I think he had more mats and more in the brush this fall and while I groomed him this week I noticed some areas with really short hair that was obviously fairly new growth in comparison to his long spirals. He also has one of those little red fur areas grow in so he has a little spot of red on his rump! He used to have a little red hook of fur just below his neck so if he was a christmas ornament you could hang him from it! It has faded and this new red area is new growth as well. I can't really remember if this happened last fall or not. It is not causing any shedding issues at all but he did seem to mat non stop for about a month or so. We would brush him and if my husband did it I would say he obviously didn't do a thorough job! But then I noticed that it happened after I did it too. The next day there would be a mat where you knew he was fully brushed out. The appearance of his coat hasn't changed unless you were brushing up close to notice. Mind you we are in Canada and do have definite seasons. All our other dogs had noticeable coat changes per season but were shedding dogs.

I was told that the coat goes through changes till the dog is ablout 3 years old and then what ever you end up with by that time is it. Jersey changed constantly, Jasmine stayed pretty much the same. Same breeder, same lines. Go figure!

Lorraine...My Gracie Doodle is 4 1/2 years old and she is an F1.  I haven't really ever notice much of a change.  She doesn't shed but I do get hair when I brush or comb her which I think is normal since that happens to humans too.  I keep Gracie quite short in the summer and longer in the winter.  Because of the longer coat there is more maintenance and then I do notice more in the brush but I think that is only because of the longer hair getting tangles and a few mats now and then and having to sort of pull through them.  Short hair is way easier to deal with on a Doodle but in answer to your I don't see much in the way of change.
