    I had this picture brought to me so that I would know how to groom a oay swims in the pool goldendoodle. Pp had been given this by her breeder to give to the Groomer so that I would know how. I promptly emailed the breeder and told her where she could put her "standards". (respectfully of course)

      I really like your schedule with the length of hair corresponding to how often they come in!

        I have one goldendoodle that comes in every 2-3 months. Something just a bath, others a longer haircut. They actually keep him brushed out. When I first started grooming him he was 5 years old and had never had a haircut. But one day he told me to take some length off! Gasp! So I did a C comb with scissored legs. Eventually I was able to take the dog down with a 1 Comb, fuller legs. But I always charged him happily for it. Xmas 2011 he never booked an appointment. I found out why 5 months later. He had decided to try a cheaper place, and they shaved his dog with a 7 claiming it was matted. HAHAHA. You get what you pay for. Even what little matting he did come in with every once in a while, it came right out!

          I LOVE THIS! It's pure genius. I'm definitely going to start using that.

            [QUOTE=PawfessionalTouch;484255]years, That whole page is like a joke... and who would give the owner that many choices? QUOTE]
            probably the breeder ....not the groomer.

              I think I have the rarest ocmbination possible. 2 great doodles and great owners. They are NEVER matted riley comes in every 3 wks gets hair cut evvry 6 and charlie comes in every 7 or so weeks and gets a 3. he has irish setter like hair so no biggie. BOTh dogs however are plotting my demise as they always try to sufficate me in dog kisses.

                I do a lot of doodles and they're about 50/50 on well maintained vs not. Got one this week that comes in weekly for baths and is groomed monthly, and another I haven't seen since September, I'm not looking forward to her!!

                  I do tons of doodles since I own one and happily tell people that yes, I do groom her myself and you may certainly make an appointment with me. HOWEVER, I groom my own doodle very short (4 with scissored legs, sometimes 4 all over) and once they see how good a doodle can look at that short length, they often want it for their own! I explain that in order for me to do a long length on their dog, they have to comb the dog properly, and I show them the mats on their dog and use the comb that is always in my pocket to show them that it won't come out without shaving. Then they come more regularly

                  I hope someday I can have all doodles and poodles and cockapoos every day!

                    I have one that I groom, owner is nuts!! Dog is nuts!!! They are a great combination. They pair of them came in vet office the other day as the doodle had a massive ear infection and the vet was simply speechless as to how nuts they both were. Vet was trying to put drops in dogs ear, owner was feeding dog meatballs and I think I would have just laughed at shear frustration on vets face. You can have my doodle anytime.
