Every Miniature Doodle puppy has a certain amount of grooming that is required to keep the mini doodle puppy in tip-top shape. Some Mini Doodles require more effort than others, and it can be confusing since there are variations of coat types in Mini Doodles.
The majority of grooming will come down to the coat of the Mini Doodle. This means there will be individual variations in grooming requirements based on the type/style of coat your individual Miniature Doodle has. Generally speaking, the grooming can be broken down like this:
Curlier Miniature Doodle coats don’t shed normally at all.
What curly coats do is continue to grow! It’s just like our hair, and if you leave it fully alone without any type of trimming, it will grow, and grow, and grow!
What curlier coats do is require is a trip to the groomer for a trim once every 6-8 weeks depending on the look you desire for your Mini Doodle. You may be able to wait 12 weeks in between visits if you prefer a less trimmed appearance and a more shaggy look to your Mini Doodle. A groomer will be able to not only trim your Miniature Doodle’s hair to a more manageable length, but she will also be responsible for creating “the look” of your Mini Doodle. Ideally, you should provide photos you like of groomed Mini Bernedoodles , Mini Aussiedoodles , Mini Goldendoodles or whatever the case may be, for the groomer’s reference. Miniature Doodles are often cut into a “teddy bear” or “full face” cut so that their faces are not as close cut as a poodle’s face.
These coats should be brushed quite frequently. Ideally, your Mini Doodle should be done everyday. Without this brushing, the Mini Doodles curly coat will easily tangle and matt close to the body. Particular care should be taken to brush out the face, behind ears, tails, legs, and under the tummy. These areas are more prone to matting.
Miniature doodles that have a more wavy coats require less routine professional groomer maintenance. Depending on how neat you want your Mini Doodle’s hair to be, one or two groomer visits a year to shape the coat, especially around the face, may be desired.
A wavy coat doesn’t necessarily have to be brushed everyday, but it should be well brushed 2-3 times a week. This is important to prevent tangling in the hair.
