Hello all my lovely DK friends! I'm sorry that Sunny and I have been absent on DK for a while. She told me I was neglecting you all, but I had to get some important things done before I could play,…Continue

Sunny is going to the vet! *Update!*

Seems like lots of our doodle friends are going to the vet recently! Sunny is licking at her front left paw, and she is very very itchy. She has scratched out a dime-sized area of fur on her left ear…Continue

I was just bringing groceries in for my mother and using the "Wait" command each time I opened the door to the garage so that Sunny wouldn't get out. I started to think about how often I use each of…Continue

Michael Gurley replied to Darcy & Millie's discussion scissor cuts? in the group Doodle Grooming
"Have you tried using blenders instead of thinners? The ones I just posted a picture of are amazing. They give a perfectly natural look with only a couple snips which is way easier than straight or curved shears followed up with thinners."

"If you're only going to be using it for trimming paw pads, sanitary areas, and maybe the corners of the eyes, I'd go with a Wahl Bravura since it has an adjustable 5-length blade that never gets hot. The lengths the blade can set to are 9,…"

"www.petedge.com has very nice shears. I personally use an Oster 26 tooth blending shear to do most of my scissor work instead of curved or straight shears since it gives me a more natural line and mistakes are more forgiving when using a blender. I…"

"Actually, Petsmart has a rule that a groomer must see paperwork from the vet verifying that the dog has had the rabies vaccine. Then we record the expiration date in our computer. We do not ask for any other vaccines, though, just rabies."

Profile Information

About Me:
I'm 21, in college, and very active with animals! I love them all- dogs, horses, and even reptiles! I am FEMALE!!!!!
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
I have a miniature labradoodle named Sunny, and she is my baby! She is 2 years old now and she's cream colored with a little bit of apricot on her back. She weighs 24 pounds and has very soft fleece.

I also have a dachshund and several reptiles.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder, Gift from Friend/Relative
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I wanted a very soft, low-shedding dog with a fantastic disposition. Then when I saw Sunny's picture online, I knew she was supposed to be mine!!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
I love going to the dog park with her, swimming in our pool, and letting her run in the yard while I garden.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I do! I groom professionally. My mentor/tutor is Kristen Clyburn, who is ranked #10 in the USA for competition groomers!
Favorite Doodle Products?
Ear cleaner!! That is my favorite doodle product. She has to get her ears cleaned out after every bath and every swim. Also, when she plays rough at the dog park and gets dirt in her ears, we use the ear cleaner at home.
Relationship Status:
In a Relationship
Would you be willing to Dog Sit on occasion for other DoodleKisses members? (You are NOT committing to anything by saying yes - you are just saying you might be willing to do this if you were acquainted with the other member and the circumstances were right.)
Yes

Did the vet do a skin scraping of these areas? That would be the first thing that needs to be done, to rule out any kind of mites. It doesn't sound exactly like allergies to me, but I haven't seen every variation of allergy symptoms. The timing (and age of onset) is perfect for Atopy, though, so this very well might be a seasonal allergy. It would be easier if we could talk about it.

The vet didn't even recommend any antihistamines or steroids?

I'm sending you a friend request so we can talk about this.
