"You can certainly introduce grooming to her using scissors and clippers at any time. It is. Good idea to do so gradually with treats and praise. There is no rule for when they need a haircut. It’s personal preference. The advantage to clipping…"
My 4 month old girl is looking pretty scruffy. Her coat is getting frizzy on the ends in places. I’m tempted to clip her with the longest attachment. Would that be ok or should I just continue to brush a comb her and wait for her adult coat to come in?See More
"These are all the tools I use also. (Everyone's recommendation about LesPooche brush was correct. It was the one lacking in my arsenal) Ha! I also have a small dematting tool that I use on occasion. It was cheap and…"
"Thank you! It’s not thinning in a way that I’m concerned about. Honestly, I think I’ve probably been brushing and combing her too much (daily). I’m feeding her Orijen Puppy. I’ve also been giving her coconut oil and…"
"If her coat is noticeably thinning, I’d check with the vet. I’d also make sure to feed a top quality kibble (from Food Group recommended brands. I’d also add 1 capsule of Evening Primrose Oil for skin health. "
"Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my question. I have the Christiansen pin brush and a poodle comb. That’s what I’ve been using and they work well. Her coat is thinning from the brushing and combing though. I’m assuming…"

"A brush that would be a good one is a pin brush. Chris Christenson makes very nice ones. They are pricey but the pins don't recede into the brush. You also want to have a steel comb. One of my doodles has a…"
"Good morning, oh my goodness she does look like my Sassy girl! Sassparilla's coat went thru several changes the first couple of years and I'm very fortunate she doesn't shed or mat. As far as brushing her I really only use…"
"Thank you, Bonnie. I probably should have mentioned she’s only 4 months old. Don’t they go through a coat change at around 8 months? She’s a multigenerational. When I got her she had a lot more hair/fur but I’ve been brushing…"
"Coco is sooo adorable! She has a lovely fleece coat. I think it will stay pretty much like this. I have two F1 standards. One is curlier and the other has a fleece coat. The one with a fleece coat sheds a little bit. I think you are going to have a…"

What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
We are the proud owners of our adorable chocolate labradoodle Cocoa. She’s our first labradoodle. We also have a cat, guinea pigs, chickens and pigeons.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
Primarily because they are said to be non shedding and great family dogs.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
