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?
