Did you Doodle just get shaved? Are you devastated?
If so, you’re probably wondering how long it takes for a Doodle’s hair to grow out again. I see this question all the time online, and we’ve finally been able to make this video to answer once and for all, just how long it takes for a Doodle to look like a Doodle again after getting a shave down. (I say “finally” because this video is 3 months in the making!)
I last groomed Chloe on June 27th. I used a #5 blade all over her body, and a #10 blade on her head, face, and neck to see how distinguishable these lengths would look on day 1 vs. day 90.
It is now early October and I’ve been taking pictures of Chloe almost every day for the past 90 days in order to make the below time lapse video.
In the 90 days, Chloe’s hair grew to a length between 2 and 2.5 inches. So this equates to between 0.66 and 0.75 inches per month.
Now it’s only been 3 months, and I’ve been pretty diligent about brushing and combing her, so she’s been mat-free this whole time. That said, I think I will continue to take pictures of Chloe every day until the next time she gets clipped and do another video like this
in the near future.
