Do Goldendoodles Shed? Will This Puppy Make A Mess?
The answer to this question depends on your dog’s personality. Some dogs are very clean and tidy while others like to have fun with it. You may want to keep a close eye on your pup if he starts doing something else other than what you tell him to do. If he gets too wild or out of control, then you need to take action immediately.
If your pup does not seem bothered by the idea of having a little mess around him, then he will probably go along with whatever you decide to do. However, if your pup is prone to getting into mischief and running around playing all day long, then you might want to consider taking some sort of action against him.
You could call a professional groomer, but they usually charge a pretty penny. Another option would be to hire someone to come over and trim the fur off your pup. However, hiring someone to do this job is going to cost you money. So unless you’re willing to pay for it yourself, there’s no point in paying somebody else.
That leaves one alternative which is simply letting your pup get dirty and then cleaning up after him later when he’s done playing around.
The most important thing is to make sure your pup does not get too dirty. If he starts getting grime and dirt all in his hair, then it’s going to be a lot harder to clean him off later. Instead, if you catch him with a small amount of dirt on him, then you can easily wipe it all off with a wet cloth or something similar to that nature. It’s not ideal, but it gets the job done.
However, if you want to get your pup used to the whole process, then you could start training him from the very beginning. During his first few months of life, you’ll want to get some wipes or wet cloths and wipe him down every day. When he gets older, you can start training him to be okay with a bathtub. Some people prefer to use a baby bathtub, but others just fill up the actual tub with warm water and let their dog play around in it.
There are some dogs that absolutely hate baths, but the majority of canines seem to enjoy the water. It’s also a lot easier to clean them when they’re soaking wet and unable to run away. However, regardless of whether you decide to start training your dog during his first months or you wait until he’s older, make sure you have some sort of back up plan for when it comes time to clean him.
If all else fails, feel free to look for professional groomers in your area. There are plenty of people who do this for a living and they should be able to help out with whatever you need.
