Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
While this is all fascinating to you, I can assure you that whatever his coat is at 5 months, he is not done changing coats yet. You need to wait until he is at least a year before his coat will be done. The "Dreaded Coat Change" doesn't even start until around 8 months to a year or so. If you look at photos on my page our blond doodle, Owen, had some interesting hairdos over the months. I noticed on your page that Gypsy went through a bunny fuzz coat like Owen's, too. While an F1 Labradoodle could have a less thick coat than an F1 Goldendoodle, I have no predictions for an F2. It's a fun adventure as each coat type comes in and then goes to end up with a new look altogether. Gypsy has beautiful eyes. ;o)
Not to change the subject, but this would be a great calendar shot! This photo just makes me feel happy!
Chloe, watching your dood go thru coat stages is one of the "fun" parts of being a doodle parent. Kinda like Christmas, waiting to see what you're going to get! And very unpredictable. Here are a few photos of Penny - look at all the stages she went through. It was at least a year before her coat finally settled in.
So nice to see all the changes taking place. Like! And perfect example to show the bewilderment of coat changes.
