You can bathe a puppy at 8 weeks old. I would recommend starting now because Aussiedoodles need to be comfortable being groomed because their going to need a lot of it... so it's best to start sooner then later. You don't want to over do it either because washing can remove some of the oils in their coats that keep them from smelling and also keeps them soft and shinny but if you use a mild puppy shampoo and conditioner every 6-8 weeks that is totally fine. There's tons of tutorials online about how to groom your Doodle. You can do a search for "grooming your Labradoodle" on Google/Youtube because basically it's the same concept. You also have to pluck out the hair from inside their ears to avoid ear infections. You can do this with your fingers and some ear powder. Owning an Aussiedoodle requires that you learn all of this stuff because believe me when their adult coat comes in your going to need to know how. :) Good Luck and enjoy your Aussiedoodle! They are amazing dogs!
