Mini Goldendoodle Care
Mini Goldendoodle puppies are popular right now. They combine the power and strength of a Golden Retriever with the beauty and elegance of a Poodle! Although they are not purebred, they are an increasingly popular crossbreed.
There’s no wonder what makes these dogs so popular! They are really tiny and ridiculously cute, with their big eyes and teddy-bear like faces.
These dogs are teeny tiny because they are a mix of Poodle parents. Sometimes, even smaller mixes such as the Miniature or Toy Poodles become popular and the breeders start creating puppies with the same characteristics.
Mini Goldendoodles are the perfect combination of looks, devotion, and low shedding. They are devoted to their families and take well to anyone.
Mini Goldendoodles are dog breeds that make great service dogs for adults with mild to moderate allergies, or for people with a visual impairment.
Mini Goldendoodle Grooming
How often does the Mini Goldendoodle need to be brushed?
One of the biggest differences between Goldendoodles and other breeds is that they shed less and don’t require as frequent brushing. They also enjoy being brushed more often than other dog breeds. Once every few weeks, or once a day depending on your pet’s needs is sufficient for the Mini Goldendoodle.
Does the Mini Goldendoodle need Nail Clipping?
Their nails are so short and so thin that clipping them can be very difficult. Many dogs have difficulty walking with their nails too long, so it is important to keep them short. If the Mini Goldendoodle appears to be uncomfortable or in pain, you may want to seek veterinary advice.
Mini Goldendoodle Ear Cleaning
Cleaning your Mini Goldendoodle ears, including the inside, isn’t just good for them. When Mini Goldendoodle has ear mites or infections, they need a clean ear to help them heal. You can use an ear cleaner made specifically for dogs to keep their ears and the environment around them clean.
How often do I need to bathe my Mini Goldendoodle?
Mini Goldendoodles are not the type of dog that needs a lot of bathing. However, if your Mini Goldendoodle does start to smell, you will want to give them a bath. This is to remove any dirt and hair that has accumulated on their body. If they have been outside, they will have a layer of dirt and sand that will need to be shampooed off.
Mini Goldendoodle Health
Mini Goldendoodles are a hardy dog breed that is carefully bred by crossing two healthy purebred dogs. Although they enjoy better health thanks to hybrid vigor, they can also develop some health issues that are common in the breeds of their parents. Some of these issues include:
- Patellar luxation – When your knee cap shifts, it’s called a Patellar luxation (dislocation). It can be classified as medical or lateral depending on which side of the femoral groove it rides.
- Hip dysplasia – You’re probably wondering what this has to do with dogs, right? Well, dogs have the same condition in their hips and part of the reason veterinarians are seeing more hip dysplasia cases is that dog hips get cracked up on sofas.
- Cataracts – Cataracts are a clouding of the normally clear lens in someone’s retina. They’re mostly related to aging.
- Allergies – Mini Goldendoodles have been known to have a tendency to have allergies and sensitivity to latex, foods such as carrots and citrus, as well as environmental factors.
- Joint problems – A lot of people and dogs experience joint pain and a lot of times it can be caused by injury or arthritis.
- Dental issues – Mini Goldendoodles are prone to tooth issues and it’s imperative you pay close attention to the background of your dog. Equally important is purchasing from a reputable breeder before bringing it home for good.
- Ear infections – Mini Goldendoodles have long and hairy ears, which can make it difficult for the ear to breathe. This can lead to ear infections.
Whether taking this dog into your life is right for you depends on the time and affection you have to give, just like any other pet
It’s totally up to you which dog breed you would like for a pet, but Mini Goldendoodles are a great option and should definitely be considered, especially if you’re looking for a family-oriented companion.
