Grooming the Goldendoodle's Fur

The coat presents the most work and requires the most diligence for a goldendoodle groomer. Goldendoodles generally do not shed profusely. Therefore they do need to be brushed on a regular basis, in order to keep their coat clean and free from mats and tangles. As a rule, the wavier or curlier the coat, the less the goldendoodle will shed. The dog may shed a bit more if it happens to have a straighter coat. It is highly recommended that you brush your pet's coat several times during the week of the professional grooming in Long Island, NY. It is especially important to make sure your goldendoodle is thoroughly brushed and de-matted before bathing! Bathing a knotted coat can present frustrating problems for you and painful problems for your dog. The experienced groomers at Maximum K9 have the requisite skills to deal with larger breeds, and have the quality tools to keep your dog's fur gorgeous and knot-free! It's a great idea to bring your goldendoodle in every other week for walk-in de-mattings between groomings. As far as bath-time, ask for oatmeal shampoo. Goldendoodles tend to have sensitive skin, and the special oatmeal shampoo provides some extra soothing care. Conditioner for the fur is also a must if your goldendoodle has a longer coat. Trimming the extra hair above the eyes is also part of standard goldendoodle grooming at Maximum K9 in Long Island, NY.

Goldendoodle Ear Care

Before the actual bathing, it is important to pluck the unnecessary, overgrown fur from the goldendoodle's ears. Ear plucking should be performed on a regular routine, and is also part of standard goldendoodle grooming at Maximum K9. It is a preventative measure against the threat of ear infections, which can lead to deafness in extreme or untreated cases. The groomer will use their pointer finger and thumb to gently but thoroughly remove small tufts of fur from the ear.

Cleaning the Goldendoodle's Teeth

Goldendoodles have a tendency to easily get bad breath. While chewing bones can certainly help keep the teeth clean, a thorough teeth brushing is important. Maximum K9 groomers in Long Island, NY have the experience to handle the teeth-cleaning job! Regular brushing of your goldendoodle's teeth is paramount in avoiding dental disease.  In between brushings, you can help to improve the health of your dog's mouth with raw dog food.  Raw food has been shown to decrease gum disease and bad breath, while keeping your dog's teeth cleaner than regular dog food.  Any mouth-related disease can be painful, costly, and lead to other illnesses. Make sure to ask your Maximum K9 groomer to brush your goldendoodle's teeth for a fresh and healthy smile!
