Blonde dogs have a fair, pale yellow fur that is incredibly eye catching.
This gorgeous coat comes in lots of different lengths and textures.
And the dogs beneath them vary just as much.
From small to large, laid back to ever vigilant, whatever type of dog you are looking for there is a blonde coat to go with it.
If you take your time researching your favorite blonde breeds, you can be sure to find the perfect puppy to match your family.
Blonde dog breeds are very popular at the moment, especially with pet dog owners.
Their coats are incredibly eye catching, beautiful and stand out from the crowd.
But the shade varies quite a lot, and there is no official definition of what makes a yellow dog blonde in most people’s eyes.
These blonde dog breeds all have blonde coats, or can have blonde coats.
And some have other gorgeous colors mixed in too.
Most of these dogs come in blonde coats, but the shades vary and there might be other colors or hues mixed in.
When you are looking for a blonde puppy check the color of the parents, and any puppies if they have been born.
And remember that color can change over time.
So the color of the puppy you take him might not be the color they will be into adulthood.
Another way to find a blonde puppy is to look at some of the lovely mixes.
Blonde Mixed Breed Dogs
Blonde mixed breed dogs have never been more popular.
Especially with the rise and rise of the doodle dogs!
From yellow Labradoodles to cream Cockapoos, you’re hard pressed to find a dog park with a blonde cross breed.
These magnificent mixed breeds can have beautiful blonde coats.
But as a mixed breed it will be even harder to predict the colors of any potential puppies before they have been born.
Mixed breed dogs have some bad press, and aren’t always bred ethically, but that can be said of purebred dogs too.
The important thing is to do your research on both parent breeds before you commit to a puppy.
Make sure each parent is health tested for conditions that impact their breed, and ask to see their clear certificates.
The mother should have a clear bond with the owner, and be kept for a purpose beyond just producing puppies.
Bathing and Grooming
Whether you buy a pure or mixed breed, blonde dogs’ coats need to be kept in good condition.
Pale furred dogs can need some special care to keep their coat looking clean.
The whiter a dog’s hair, the more every bit of dirt and spec of old food shows up.
Bathing Blonde Dogs
Most dogs don’t need regular bathing, shampooing and scrubbing unless they are particularly messy.
Even those with pale coats can usually last a month or so without stepping under a shower.
And when you do wash them, any regular good quality puppy or dog shampoo should suffice.
The only potential problem area over and above dark furred dogs can be to do with marks around their eyes, nose and mouth.
Very fair coats can also get tear staining around the eyes which can cause dark marks.
These aren’t a health problem, but they don’t look wonderful. And most owners prefer to try to avoid them.
You can get products that you use to clean around their eyes which can help with the staining.
But generally wiping these areas more frequently helps too, as does keeping the fur around their eyes short.
If you are bothered by tearing staining, then choosing a breed for a darker shade of blonde fur is sensible.
Brushing Blonde Dogs
Brushing your blonde dog’s fur will depend on the length and texture.
And how mucky they get during an average day!
All dogs benefit from a quick groom once a week, but if they have longer fur then more regular combs and visits to the dog groomer are essential to keep them tidy.
And to avoid matting!
Dogs with long fur can be kept clipped short if you prefer not to brush their coat every day.
And those with curly hair need regular haircuts to keep them from getting matted.
This is especially important with tight curls like Poodles and their mixes have.
Choosing A Blonde Puppy
Blonde dogs can make amazing companions or working partners.
And they come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes and temperaments.
So it’s absolutely possible to find a blonde dog that will fit well with your family situation and lifestyle.
Just remember to research your chosen breed carefully, and take your time finding the right healthy, happy litter of puppies.
