Do mini Goldendoodles Shed?
If you are adopting a Goldendoodle, you may be curious how much they shed. Are they truly hypoallergenic? Let’s dig in to find out more so you are prepared when your furry friend joins your home.
Do Goldendoodles shed? Yes they do. In fact, most people looking to adopt a Goldendoodle puppy think that they are truly Hypoallergenic dogs. But Goldendoodles can and do shed, they just shed less than typical Golden Retrievers and other breeds. In fact, no dog breed is “truly” hypoallergenic.
Goldendoodles are a mix between the Golden Retriever and the Poodle, and can be either standard or miniature sized. The shedding frequency isn’t impacted by their size, but rather which parent breed they tend to inherit their coat from. The Goldendoodle is the most common Golden Retriever mix, and also sheds the least frequently compared to others. This is because the fur they discard gets trapped up in the rest of their fur and doesn’t stick to your clothes or furniture.
Goldendoodles inherit a slightly wiry or curly feature to their hair, coming from their Poodle parent. This is why Poodles are popular as parents for many other mixed breeds. Grooming them becomes easier, because they aren’t shedding like a Labrador Retriever all over your home. There are still some basics you’ll want to master to keep your home and clothes hair-free, so let’s jump in!
Goldendoodles can have either wavy coats or curly coats. While it’s possible for your pup to have a straight coat, it’s far less likely compared to the Labradoodle or other the Shepadoodle. Your pup’s genetics are going to play a role in what type of coat they inherit. There’s a possibility that your Goldendoodle is going to take after their Golden Retriever parent with a more wavy coat, or they could end up more curly like the poodle.
