We just brought home a sweet new goldendoodle puppy. I know mouthing is perfectly normal and we are training him using a positive approach, but he doesn't seem to respond to "yelps" when he mouths…Continue

Best Length for no mats - not shaved

Hi all, I'm wondering if there is a length that seems best to prevent mats? Also, Ive heard different advice about shaving doodles for summer. Is it good to do that or does it actually make them hotter? I brush Caspian out twice a week, BUT he doesn't let me get his front legs or belly well. I will probably just have them shave his belly, but what can I do for the legs? They get SO matted!See More

Bathing and grooming - anxious 16 month doodle

Hi All, I have been taking my doodle to the groomer consistently since he was just a baby, but he is still very anxious. He HATES the dryer and they are never able to clip his nails. I have been working with him at home and brush him 3-4 times a week. He won't let me clip his nails either. I would love to be able to bath him at home and eventually groom him. Although I have bathed him here before he has NEVER let me dry him. I don't bath him here anymore because I know he needs to be dried to…See More

I would get him a plastic coated wire leash. Or put sour apple on any leash so he won't like the taste.
