Mini Goldendoodle Care

Mini Goldendoodle Grooming Requirements  

Mini Goldendoodles are low maintenance when it comes to grooming. Their grooming needs depend on the length of their coats. A Mini Goldendoodle that sports a short coat will require one weekly brush whereas a Mini Goldendoodle that has a long coat will require two to three brushings per week to avoid tangles and matting. In both cases, they need to be bathed once every month or so. It is recommended to clip their nails as they grow and clean their ears regularly.

Mini Goldendoodle Exercise Needs

Mini Goldendoodles are playful and active dogs. They enjoy going on hiking trips, camping adventures, and swimming. They also love to be included in all family activities and play canine games like frisbee, fetch, and find-it. Mini Goldendoodles don’t mind spending their day cuddled on their owner's lap and are just as happy lazing around as they are running freely outside. A 30-minute walk and some active playtime at home each day is enough to keep them fit and content.

Mini Goldendoodle Health  

The Mini Goldendoodle is generally a healthy dog breed with very few health concerns. As a mix of two purebred dogs, the Mini Goldendoodle benefits from hybrid vigor which in simple terms means better health than its parents. By adding a new gene pool to the mix, certain health conditions that purebreds are prone to are canceled out. Hybrid dogs like the Mini Goldendoodle are less prone to the same ailments their parent breeds suffer from. That being said, there are certain conditions these dogs can develop such as hypothyroidism, patellar luxation, allergies, ear infections, Von Willebrand Disease, Elbow dysplasia, and retinal atrophy.

Mini Goldendoodle Lifespan

The Mini Goldendoodle lifespan is between 12 and 16 years. Mini Goldendoodle life expectancy can increase with a proper exercise regime, regular vet checks, and superior quality dog food.  

Mini Goldendoodle Training

Mini Goldendoodles are highly trainable dogs. They are both agile and smart, have eager to please personalities and can be easily trained. These cute puppies love to impress, so training in tricks is an activity they will always be anxious to partake in.  

Leash training and socializing a Mini Goldendoodle puppy should be an easy task. They make friends fast with other dogs, pets, and humans alike, and they love to discover and explore novel places.  

Mini Goldendoodles are family-attached dogs and leaving them alone for extended periods of time can lead to separation anxiety. It is recommended to leave them alone for a few minutes at a time when they are puppies, to help them adjust to some alone time and to avoid any future behavioral issues.
