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.

Whiney, We shaved our golden doodle about 3 months ago and decided we would never do it again. She didn’t even look like our dog. # months latter she is looking doodlish again. We like the way she now looks at 3 months and think that is the length we would like to start out with when she is groomed.
Thanks Whitney!

Thank you for that video of Chloe on the 1st day of cut to 90 day cut. It helps me try to see how it grows out.

Sadie had her hair cut on May 11th and it is now 6/21 and now I can see how she will basically look at 90 days. She is a Bernedoodle so her hair seems a little thicker especially on her chest and legs. I almost daily comb her at night. She gets tired of the combing after 10 minutes or so but I get most of her done. I can see as her hair gets thicker it takes longer to comb but I am making sure she doesn’t have any mats or knots there. I hope I keep that from happening, at least so it doesn’t get to hard to handle.
Thanks for the many emails you send, it really has made me more informed on what to do to make her comfortable and look great.
