Ep #6: How to Brush a Doodle: Best slicker brush, tools, and techniques to make sure your doodle never gets shaved (again!)

In this quick episode, I will walk you through the best doodle brushes, tools, and techniques to get your doodle the look you want while also keeping them comfortable and healthy. 

I answer doodle parents' top grooming questions including: 

  • What's the best slicker brush and how do you use a brush on a doodle?
  • What is the best grooming kit for a doodle?
  • How often does a doodle need grooming?
  • Why do groomers shave doodles' coats and why do they find mats even if I brush daily?
  • Which is the best detangler and when do I need to use it?
  • Can my doodle air dry after a bath?
  • What cut should my doodle get if I want to skip brushing?
  • Is your doodle embarrassed after grooming?
  • How to take care of a doodle's hair?

This episode is great for all people brushing and grooming goldendoodles, bernedoodles, labradoodles, sheepadoodles, aussiedoodles, cockapoos, cavapoos, yorkiepoos, australian labradoodles, cobberdogs, Portuguese Water Dogs, maltipoos, mini-goldendoodles, mini-labradoodles, and all poodle and poodle mixed dogs and puppies.

oh hey there!

I’m Corinne, The Doodle Pro™


I get it.  You’ve tried training your doodle with what worked well with other dogs or for other trainers. 

(Maybe you’ve noticed that didn’t get your doodle as calm or happy as you hoped.)

That’s why The Doodle Pro™ does things differently.

All of my training methods are positive, research-based, and doodle specific. When should a doodle get their first grooming? How do you stop a doodle from barking? How can I stop my doodle from jumping on guests? When should I get a second dog? How do I help my doodle with separation anxiety?
