My Love For Sandy: The Mini Goldendoodle Who Cured My Fear Of Dogs

The Mini Goldendoodle

I have always loved dogs, but an unfortunate incident with a pug when I was five years old had made petting a dog one of my biggest fears. Things turned worse as I grew up, and I would only express love for these adorable creatures from a distance. 

A few years ago, I came across an adorable mini Goldendoodle called Sandy at a friend’s home. Every time I would enter their place, Sandy would get excited and jump around to my utter horror – little did I know all she wanted was some cuddling! 

One day, my friend let Sandy loose on me, and it might sound crazy, but Sandy caused me no harm. Instead, she ran towards me, freezing me in the process, settled down nicely on my lap, and spent the next few hours cuddling with me. By the end of the day, my fear for dogs was replaced by my love for this miniature Goldendoodle.

A mini Goldendoodle is a friendly, and intelligent animal and make suitable companions for people of all age groups and all kinds of family. But one con of owning a goldendoodle is that they are very high maintenance. they also require regular grooming and care to keep them healthy and happy. 

Here are some steps on how to groom and take care of a mini goldendoodle:

  • Brush the dog’s coat weekly with a rubber curry brush, grooming mitt, or soft bristle brush to remove loose hair and keep the coat shiny. Avoid using hard-bristled brushes, as they can irritate the skin.
  • Trim the dog’s nails every 10 to 14 days with a sharp set of human nail clippers or guillotine-style veterinary clippers. Cut only the sharp tip of the nail, and avoid cutting the quick, which is the pink part at the base of the nail. Cutting the quick can cause pain and bleeding.
  • Brush the dog’s teeth daily or as often as possible with a dog toothbrush and toothpaste. This can help prevent dental problems, such as gingivitis, gum disease, and tooth loss.
  • Check the dog’s ears regularly for any signs of dirt, wax, or infection. Use a cotton ball or gauze moistened with a mild ear cleaner to gently wipe the inside of the ear flap. Do not insert anything into the ear canal, as this can cause damage or discomfort.
  • Bathe the dog occasionally or as needed with a mild dog shampoo and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry the dog with a towel or a blow dryer on a low setting. Avoid getting water or shampoo in the dog’s eyes, ears, or nose.
  • Clip the majority of the dog’s whole body with clippers. The length of the fur depends on your preference and the dog’s lifestyle, but it should not be too short or too long. A good rule of thumb is to leave at least an inch of hair.
  • Trim the fur on the dog’s face, ears, and muzzle with clippers or scissors. The fur on the face should be short enough to allow the dog to see clearly, but not too short to lose its cute expression. The fur on the ears should be about an inch long, and the fur on the muzzle should be slightly longer than the rest of the face.
  • Trim the fur on the dog’s feet and tail with clippers or scissors. The fur on the feet should be short enough to prevent dirt and debris from getting stuck, but not too short to expose the skin. The fur on the tail should be slightly longer than the rest of the body, but not too long to drag on the ground.
  • You should also take the dog to the vet once a year for a routine check-up, vaccination, and parasite prevention. Also, consult your vet if you notice any signs of health issues, such as allergies, breathing problems, heart problems, or cancer.

Also dont forget to provide the dog with plenty of toys, scratching posts, and climbing opportunities to keep it active and stimulated. This can help prevent boredom, obesity, and behavioral problems.
