Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Also, just to be clear, I'm not a spammer or a PR agent. We have 4 pets, one doodle and I just happen to author a blog about my dogs. I regularly post about my experiences but I know other people have other needs and I'm looking for more information so I can learn about things that are applicable to all pet owners. For example, I know very little about wooly coats because my Remy is a fleecy pup. I've learned so much from reading posts on here - things I never would have even thought of. Thanks!
Cooper has a thick wooly coat that I keep really long (6 inches). I would be lost without my Oster rake - actually im lost without it right now, our moving truck was supposed to arrive 2 days after we did, but its been a month and still no sign.....
I use a slicker pin brush with bent tines (I love the Les Pooches brushes and had the puppy one, im saving for a new bigger one), then use the Oster rake to get out tough mats close to the skin, then a metal comb.

I look for all natural, grain free foods (high protein) and treats
Crash tested car harness is a must http://www.kurgostore.com/products/Tru%252dFit-Smart-Harness.html
