Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
It's an old wives tale that shaving the coat will make it grow back curlier. Pure hokum, with absolutely no basis in science or fact. I think her coat is gorgeous. And their coats do change as they get older and go through the coat change. But if this were my puppy, I'd be praying it stays like this, lol.
Shaving does nothing but make them cold. Please don't shave her. Her coat is very straight which I love - go figure, we always want what we don't have.... :-} A lot of doodles get curlier adult coats than their puppy coats, so you still have a chance for her to get wavier.
My 3 doodles range from curly non-shedding, straight non-shedding, wavy shedding. My straight haired doodle has the softest coat.
