Our Purple Clover Kennel F2b Golden doodles, Spinone Italianos, and Spinonedoodles ™ represent the finest available of the breeds!
What to expect
Over the course of the first year, your Goldendoodles, Spinone Italiano, and Spinonedoodle™ puppies will need either vaccinations, a booster, or possibly no vaccinations depending on how old the puppy is when you transition him from our home to yours.
The first set of vaccinations and complete worming are given by a board-certified veterinarian. If we keep your puppy for over 12 weeks, the second set of shots will also be given for an additional fee of $95.00
The price of the puppy will be discounted if you chose to take the puppy to your own vet to have its first shots administered.
Vaccinations are important and highly advised to protect your dog from diseases like rabies, distemper, parvo, hepatitis, and other diseases depending on the region of the country you live in.
After the first year, your dog will require booster immunizations. Your vet will give you a vaccination schedule (normally at one year and then at three-year intervals).
Your Goldendoodles, Spinone Italiano, and Spinonedoodles™ will also need to be started on a program for heartworm prevention which generally, is a pill taken at about the same time each month.
Although heartworm is generally contracted by mosquito bites, it is recommended to keep your dog on this preventative program all year even if you live in the colder regions.
Proper Nutrition for Feeding your Puppy
How to Train a Puppy
Training your puppy is one of the joys of having a Golden doodle, Spinone or Spinonedoodle™. All are highly intelligent they are very easy to train and not surprising, the Spinonedoodle™ has become one of the most desired designer breeds in the canine sport world as they are able to understand and react to fairly complex instructions.
Puppy Grooming for Beginners
The F2b Goldendoodle, Spinone Italiano, and Spinonedoodle™ puppies require a very minimum of grooming care - occasional baths or trimming around the eyes and trimming of the nails, for example.
As you puppy gets into its first year, it will start to shed its puppy fur and a new coat will require the occasional bath and trim.
Matting is very little with Spinone Italianos and is also minimal with the doodles but will depend on how long you allow the hair to grow and if you intend to have the dog in the water as with hunting sports.
Generally, we have our dogs groomed professionally twice a year and the cost is generally $50-$60 for the cut depending on the groomer. With this we find that this is more than enough to maintain the dog's hair and prevent matting.
Although the Spinone is a traditional shedding dog breed, if you are looking for a low-shed to non-shedding canine, the Spinonedoodle™ and F2b golden doodles are an excellent choice.
