Another part to include in your Goldendoodle’s cleaning regimen is the paws. These important parts need specialized care, as described in the post below:
How to Keep Your Dog’s Paws Clean and Healthy
When we think about paw care, we usually think about the nails. But paw care is so much more than trimming your dog’s nails. Wiping the paws off after walking your dog outside is a must-do.

National Certified Master Groomer Carolyn Contois has a doctoral degree as an animal naturopath and is an ASAN certified specialist who does wellness consulting in Long Island, New York. She gave us some paw care tips, including that wiping your dog’s paws “will give you a chance to inspect the pads for cuts, sores, and debris.” Read more at Dogster…
