  • Hello Doodle family : so as you all have informed me that my expensive from a breeder golden doodle will shed and he does , hair flying in the air and on every surface i the kitchen . Can someone recommend a good lint brush? He is 4
    months old and I have went through 3!
    • I have an 8yo F1 standard Goldendoodle who sheds and we use the 3M sticky lint rollers. Bed Bath & Beyond has the Jumbo rollers in 3 packs. Note: If you do a quick brush everyday, it helps with the flyaways.
    • I've had the velour-type style that Anne has and the regular sticky rollers and I think the sticky rollers work better on clothing that is a very different colour than your dog. If you just need to "reduce" the amount of hair and not get every piece then the velour type works well and is reusable which is a nice bonus. Luna shed like CRAZY and I just sort of resigned myself to the fact that I would have some dog hair on me lol.
    • I have used this type of lint brush for more than 50 years (stil have my original one) with great success.

      They can also be purchased in multiples.

      I noticed that OXO makes one too that has a container that cleans the brush. https://www.amazon.com/OXO-Grips-Furlifter-Remover-Clothing/dp/B01D...
    • Oops, just saw that you are looking for a lint brush, I thought you meant dog brushes.
      I'm not sure what a lint brush is, but we used lint rollers, had them all over the house. You can get them anywhere. https://www.target.com/p/evercare-pet-lint-roller-100-sheet-3pk/-/A...

    • The #1 All Systems Pin Brushes are great, and less excpensive than many. This is one of them: https://www.1allsystems.com/en/shop/pin-brush/
      The other thing I would suggest is a shedding rake, which is an inexpensive tool that does a great job of getting the loose fur out, so you have less hair all over the house. This is an example, Amazon also sells them: https://www.chewy.com/safari-double-row-rotating-pins/dp/226588?utm...

  • Thank you all for the input, as they say it is what it is. I had a Bichon: love of my life for 16 years . So I thought to try something different. Oh boy! He is different.
  • The breeder told me he would be curly/ wavy and I am hearing flat and nothing is making sense ! And I could have picked a multigenerational but I was told F1B have a lesser chance of shedding. Oh well he is cute for sure !
    • Oh my gosh is he adorable! Your breeder didn't tell you the truth. Sad, but that's the truth. If your puppy sheds now, he will continue to shed. He might get wavier, but he's going to continue to be absolutely adorable and look like your image of a scruffier--look doodle - my favorite. Truly, if you have big time dog allergies, he's probably going to aggravate them. If your dog allergies are not huge - take OTC allergy meds and it will probably be okay.
    • And he IS adorable, for sure.

Stumped on weak furnishings

Hi! We have an F1b Goldendoodle (mom is f1 Goldendoodle, dad is a purebred poodle) so by all genetic means, our puppy should have inherited at least one of the furnishing genes (dad tested FF, mom F/IC) but here he is still unfurnished and looking like a golden retriever! We are stumped. We were told by a geneticist at PawPrint genetics that he could have inherited weak furnishings and they’d show up later but he said usually by 6 months and there are no signs of that. What could be going on!?…
