Coat Types

The different Coat Types that Doodles can come in. Which is best for you?

Curly

Curly Doodles are covered in tight curls; almost identical to a Poodle's coat.

Genetics: C/C for curl (two curl genes); 
F/f or F/F furnishings.

Coat Care: High. Curly Doodles will get matted easier and require more frequent grooming and brushing, every one to two days at most, to avoid getting shaved at the groomer!

Fleece

Fleece Doodles have soft, straighter hair covering their body. Blow-drying their wet hair makes their coat appear straight. Air drying makes their coat appear more waved.

Genetics: C/c (one curl gene) or c/c for curl (no curl genes, also known as straight); 
F/f or F/F furnishings.

Coat Care: Moderate. Fleece Doodles do not get mated as easily as Curly Doodles. They require less frequent grooming and brushing, every two days to a week days depending on coat length, to avoid getting shaved at the groomer!
