Coat Types: Soft & Silky or Fuzzy & Fluffy?
The second coat-related question most people ask is, “What does it feel like?” This is another personal preference, with some people partial to the course-haired and others in love with soft, silky fur. Some pet owners prefer a scruffy texture and others like their pups to be fluffy. Good Day Doodles are Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles, and are fuzzy, fluffy, furry friends with amazingly soft coats.
But people who have had to clean a couch covered in fur, or who have had to brush their pup daily to keep their coat healthy and clear know the real questions to ask breeders: “How much will it shed, and how high is the maintenance?”
Behind their often-praised friendly and intelligent temperament, the Australian Labradoodle’s coat is the most desired feature of the breed. It is loved by those with dog allergies in particular because it is low-shedding or non-shedding and very allergy friendly. But the benefits of a non-shedding dog are more than just stopping sneezes and sniffles.
Anyone that has had the daily task of sweeping their furry floors and cleaning the hair-covered upholstery will appreciate the low or no-shed Australian Labradoodle coat! They do need to be brushed or combed on a regular basis and a biannual haircut keeps their peepers from getting the shaggy-dog treatment, but overall their coat maintenance is fairly low.
And no matter how much we all love our pets, I don’t know anyone that loves that “wet dog” smell! I marvel every time my wet pup comes in the house and smells just as nice as she did when she went out dry. Because Australian Labradoodles shed less than other breeds, they also don’t come with this unpleasant aspect of dog-ownership that most of us would rather do without. What’s not to love?
