How do you tell what type of coat a Labradoodle puppy will have?
- At a very young age, you can tell how streamlined a pup’s coat is; the wavier it is, the curlier it will be.
- If a pup has a nice thick coat, it’ll often stay that way.
- A pup with a straight, coarse coat will not easily develop a fluffy coat.
Will a Labradoodle puppy coat change? Pretty much every labradoodle puppy goes through a coat change, which is separate from a shedding coat. The puppy coat is eventually replaced by an adult coat, which comes with more grooming requirements. Still, you’ll need to brush your labradoodle puppy regularly and be careful to do it correctly.
Do Labradoodles get curlier as they get older? No, Labradoodles coats do not change from curly to straight or vice versa. There is a puppy coat change, but the coat type will be primarily the same. Do not expect the Labradoodle puppy coat type to change.
Do wavy coat Labradoodles shed? The loose or wavy fleece coat is very soft in texture with a slight wave to it. It blows in the wind or when the dog runs! This coat type is what most people think of as the typical Australian Labradoodle look. It is non-shedding and is generally very compatible with allergy and asthma sufferers.
