Since moving here to North Carolina and becoming a breeder in 1996, I have never used one single DOG shampoo. I actually use human shampoo on my dogs. I prefer to use human shampoo on my Goldendoodles along with a small amount of conditioner because of the fact USDA regulates the ingredients for human products better than what is sold for animals of any kind. Never use shampoo near the face of your Goldendoodle. Always shampoo from the back of the head and down. A simple cloth with water will clean your doodle’s face. At any rate, lathering your Goldendoodle’s coat and leaving the shampoo on your Goldendoodle for at least five minutes before rinsing will also help remove fleas. Ticks are another matter. You will need to use alcohol to soak a tick and then use tweezers to carefully and gently remove a tick. Simple shampoo will not “control” fleas or ticks, but they certainly will help remove them as you are bathing your Goldendoodle. Blow drying your Goldendoodle right after the bath, will also help “remove” fleas too. You can see many of our puppies with their puppy coats and adult coats on “Our Goldendoodle puppies” page. Our Goldendoodle puppies are affectionate, gentle and patient and make wonderful family companions, they are loyal and, with proper training, are highly obedient. They do have a playful side and can be mischievous when the mood hits. They are sensitive to their family members activity levels, often they enjoy playing sports and active play with some and gentle imaginary play with others. They love to be with their families and do best when they live in the home. Our Goldendoodles get along well with children and other dogs and many of our Goldendoodles are great friends with the cats living within their families too.
