How Often Should a Poodle Be Groomed?
When your dog has such curly, coarse locks, you may wonder how many trips to the groomer you and your poodle may be making.
"The longer the style, the more often they should be groomed. Poodles and poodle-crosses also go through a coat change in the first year of life, so they need to be groomed more often," says Danna Alexander, owner of Prestige Dog Grooming School. "I would suggest every four weeks in the first year through the coat change period and to get them used to grooming, and then every six to eight weeks thereafter to maintain, depending on style."
Alexander recommends owners brush and thoroughly comb their poodle's coat in between professional grooms, especially when the coat gets wet. To keep mats and tangles at bay, it's best to brush your poodle at least two to three times a week.
"A traditional, purebred poodle coat is far easier to maintain than their poodle-mix family members like doodles, but it does take dedication," she says.
