Grooming Requirements  

These adorable doodle dogs are low maintenance when it comes to grooming. Their grooming needs depend on the length of their coats. A dog that sports a short coat will require one weekly brush whereas a dog that has a long coat will require two to three brushings per week to avoid tangles and matting. In both cases, they need to be bathed once every month or so. It is recommended to clip their nails as they grow and clean their ears regularly.

Exercise Needs

Mini Golden doodles are playful and active dogs. They enjoy going on hiking trips, camping adventures, and swimming. They also love to be included in all family activities and play canine games like frisbee, fetch, and find-it. These dogs don’t mind spending their day cuddled on their owner's lap and are just as happy lazing around as they are running freely outside. A 30-minute walk and some active playtime at home each day is enough to keep them fit and content.


The Mini Groodle breed is generally a healthy dog breed with very few health concerns. As a mix of two purebred dogs, this dog benefits from hybrid vigor which in simple terms means better health than its parents. By adding a new gene pool to the mix, certain health conditions that purebreds are prone to are canceled out. Hybrid dogs like the Mini Groodle are less prone to the same ailments their parent breeds suffer from. That being said, there are certain conditions these dogs can develop such as hypothyroidism, patellar luxation, allergies, ear infections, Von Willebrand Disease, Elbow dysplasia, and retinal atrophy.

Leash training and socializing a Mini Goldiepoo puppy should be an easy task. They make friends fast with other dogs, pets, and humans alike, and they love to discover and explore novel places.  

They are family-attached dogs and leaving them alone for extended periods of time can lead to separation anxiety. It is recommended to leave them alone for a few minutes at a time when they are puppies, to help them adjust to some alone time and to avoid any future behavioral issues.
