Some things in life are just hard to get your head around. Some feats seem so daunting that they defy possibility. Doing yoga on the moon. Long division. Grooming  your own whoodle!

Are you crazy? Are you nuts? I would have an easier time hosting a sit down, black tie dinner with a band of baboons than I would grooming my whoodle. So goes the saga of the vast majority of Whoodle owners who  struggle to find solid and consistent groomer for their whoodle.

Fall season Is here, time to start growing out the Whoodle fur

One of the Whoodle’s greatest trademarks is the wide variety of fur that grows within the breed. Whoodle fur is known to be widely varied in terms of color and texture. Some Whoodles have longer, softer hair that resembles the Wheaten Terrier side of the DNA equation. Others exude more of the Poodle’s curly, course. Types of Whoodle Fur Another neat facet of Whoodles is their chameleon like ability to change their coat colors. In fact, many Whoodles can experience coat color changes up to 3-4 times a year. Additionally they are known to undergo drastic color changes in their first year. My Whoodle, Murphy was dark brown for about the first 9 months and now is mostly white. In my eyes this makes Whoodles more fun to have as compared to dog breeds that have but a single coat color. Now that October is here and the weather begins to cool, it’s time to start thinking about growing out your Whoodle’s fur regardless of what type of fur that your Whoodle has. If you reside in places with wintry weather, I recommend spreading out grooming sessions in order to maximize your Whoodle’s comfort during the wavering seasons. Types of Whoodle Fur Curly

In the summer, we like to keep our Murphy’s fur nice and trim. He often is more sluggish during the warm months when his coat is heavy and thick. In that light, I would say that Murphy the Whoodle is generally more of a winter dog. The guy sure loves playing and making havoc in piles of snow. He prances and dances until his whole body is besieged in snow. Much like how one would winterize their vehicle, you may want to winterize your Whoodle. Those with leaves to rake, make sure to leave them nice in big pile – there is a good chance your Whoodle will make a running jump and smashing into the pile.   Types of Whoodle Fur read more
