This post is still in the works. We are currently working with our community of over 6,000 Goldendoodle owners and lovers to find out what works best first hand. We will continue to update and add to this list.
With such a range of coat types many may be asking what is the best shampoo recommended for your Goldendoodle.
On the Golden Retriever side you see the straight and slightly coarse longer hair with dense undercoat.
Now the Poodle side has the very curly hair with no undercoat. It is a single coat dog unlike the outer coat and undercoat a Retriever has.
So this can result in various types of shampoo for the different coat results.
Here are a couple from our community of over 6,000 Goldendoodle owners, breeders and groomers:
Favored Shampoo, Conditioner and Detangler Among Our Goldendoodle Community
The detangler works great whenever your Goldendoodle gets wet to keep the mats and tangles away. Use it after any water time your Goldendoodle has. Then for bathtime everyone seems to like the Cowboy Magic Shampoo and Cowboy Magic Conditioner. It has decent reviews outside of our community also as you can see here on Amazon.
Mentioned By Goldendoodle Groomer & Breeder
A breeder & groomer of Goldendoodle’s recommended a good whitner shampoo but had nothing specific on brand, we saw Earthbath had great reviews on Amazon.
That is then followed up by Best Shot Ultra Wash which they say to let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Then follow that with the K9ii using both motors. That will loosen and blow out all kinds of mats and tangles they said.
These are some others mentioned often around the internet:
Best Dog Shampoo For Curly Poodle Like Hair
So with just these two breeds the result could be a more poodle-type coat resulting in curls full of bounce and coarse hair that’s soft to the touch.
For this we have received feedback that Sofee & Co. Dog Shampoo is a good choice. It has a delicate fresh scent to it. It was sublte and it is made from natural ingredients without any artificial perfumes in it.
It was mild and gentle with a good lather and rinsed away cleanly. The result was a soft coat. It gives coarse curls a nice touchability and is mild enough for weekly usage if your Goldendoodle gets dirty regularly.
Use This Dog Shampoo For Sensitive Skin
BotaniVet Certified Organic Manuka Honey Pet Shampoo is a gentle wash shampoo that is both natural and organic so you do not expose your Goldendoodle to the chemicals that trigger sensitivity.
The use of natural oils like jojoba, coconut and olive oils make it a great cleansing shampoo. The addition of Manuka honey provides an antibacterial aspect that can reduce bacteria and fungi on the Goldendoolde’s skin. It also has healing properties for sore skin and minor wounds.
It lathers well and rinses cleanly away resulting in a soft coat.
