Hi, I was wondering when everyone had their puppies shaved for the first time, and what setting they recommend? Patch is 6 1/2 months already! I have taken him to get groomed and trimmed around the face, but have not had him shaved yet. His hair is in a strange stage currently. The area around his front legs and chest is curly and the hair on his back is longer and more straight! I think he must be losing his puppy coat. Does most goldendoodle owners shave their dogs? Thanks for any info!!
