FAQ: Can a doodle shed?
The easy answer most breeders will tell you is NO, and list off f1b, f2b etc. saying some shed less than other but this is not the whole truth.
A well bred doodle is bred genetically to be low to no shed.
If you breed with the purpose of shed prevention and match up breeding pairs with the desired genetic traits the doodle will be low to no shedding! They will still lose hair just like people!

Brush in sections line combing the fur, and then follow with a comb before moving to the next section.
I highly recommend the Chris Christensen slicker brush. You can find it below on amazon.
After line brushing a section of hair using a slicker follow with a greyhound comb. It can find and untangle smaller fairy knots in the coat.
