Doodles. Labra Doodles, Golden Doodles, Sheep Doodles, Berne Doodles – anything that has been mixed with a standard (sometimes mini) poodle or already existing doodle.
If you are planning on a sweet baby Doodle, you need to prepare for daily home maintenance. This includes brushing AND combing, every day. (We recommend a slicker brush or metal greyhound comb). The idea is that you should be able to get the comb from the root to tip of the hair. You always want to start with the slicker brush, as this will help break up any knots, and then finish with the comb.
Now, because sweet Doodles are not purebred you can end up with a doodle that has a very thin and easily manageable coat, but you should always go in expecting the alternative. This may seem counter-intuitive, but what this routine should NOT include is baths at home. Without the proper tools, baths at home will only cause and expedite matting. Long coats need to be blow dried completely, and if they are towel dried and left to air dry and not brushed out, they will mat up. when you don’t use a comb and go all the way from the root to the tip, the topcoat may seem mat-free while the root of the coat is completely matted.
In addition to this point, if you want your Doodle to have that well-known long and fluffy coat, they should be at the groomer every 4 weeks for a full grooming service (1st Class Service or our Sparkling Signature Service), and a bubble bath in-between grooming. This is in addition to the daily home maintenance. Bringing them to the groomer will ensure that they are clean and thoroughly brushed/combed. You can get them full haircuts or just trim ups – the possibilities are many if the coat is well-maintained.
