I'm pretty sure my baby F1 golden doodle is going to be a shedder. Totally fine, its what I was prepared for with a F1. However, I can't decide if what she's doing now is temporary. She's only 18 weeks, but she's definitely going through a coat change. Lots of new, wavy hair coming in, and LOTS of white, "puppy" fur coming out. I do expect her to be a life-long shedder, just not sure if it will be life-long heavy shedding or if it will slow down. And, I don't know much about the expensive brushes, but have heard they are a good investment for big shedders. I know every doodle is different, but any thoughts on whether this major shedding is just a phase? Even if it is just a phase, is it worth going ahead and buying an expensive brush for the long-term? Thanks for any experienced thoughts!
