Grooming The Doodle

Written by

BeforeGrooming The Doodle -

The Doodle can be one of the most challenging to groom due to the variance in coat texture, type and condition.  The Doodle is also one of the funnest to groom, due to their rapid hair growth one can change styles completely several times a year.

Some Doodle coats are very similar to Poodle coats and require more maintenance and grooming than the Doodle whose coat is more similar to a Labrador.  Most Doodle owners want a long, fluffy and scruffy looking dog which is undeniably cute but also requires more brushing and attention.

It is important that owners are critical with themselves and honestly decide how much time they want to dedicate to daily brushing ?  how often are they wanting a full groom ? are they willing to bring their Doodle in for in between maintenance grooming ?  All of these factors decide on exactly how long and fluffy your Doodle will be.

All Doodle coats do best when properly cleansed, conditioned, hydrated and line brushed - understanding how to line brush and which products will best suit your Doodle is what we do !  Over 25 years of working with show dogs in full coat - WE understand coat care!  And while your Doodle is not a "show dog" - your Doodle is part Poodle or part Cocker or part Setter or ... and those "parts" are what make up the unique coat on your Doodle.   The Doodle Groomer must intimately understand the structure and anatomy of hair and the variance of that structure in different breeds.

We understand Doodles and groom several everyday.  We also understand Doodle owners love to be a part of the Doodles Grooming Experience and we offer Private Grooming Sessions by appointment.  Feel free to call us about your Doodle needs 360-352-1322

Mud Treatments

Written by

Your dogs first line of defense is its skin.  The skin is the largest organ your dog has, ensuring its health and vitality is our goal in helping your dog live life beautifully.  Grooming is so much more than just shaving or scissoring a dog, the bathing and finish work done on your dog's coat is the most important piece in keeping your dog's coat healthy.

Animals instinctively seek Mud therapy to heal their aliments. Galen, the Greek Physician and Philosopher was the first to record the use of clay on sick and injured animals.
Clay when moistened with water makes Mud. Naturally absorbent and extremely gentle on the system; cleansing, detoxifying and healing with mud is as old as man-kind. Many people maintain health with therapeutic mud baths at resorts and spas.

We are honored to be able to provide these same therapeutic mud baths to our canine guests that humans have had access to for hundreds of years.  The mud treatments are applied after a through shampooing opening up the hair follicles.  The hair back brushed and the mud is applied line by line with a soft paint brush directly to the skin.  After complete coverage, the mud is massaged for at least twenty minutes then rinsed with our hydrosurge mixing warm water and conditioner to seal and close the hair follicles.


Soothing Mud - Add on $20-$40 Depending on Size

Our beloved dogs live in a human world filled with toxins and pollutants that can be harmful to their health and well-being. Bored, stressed, or irritable dogs manifest their discomfort through their skin and coat. Hot spots, blemishes, irritations and other canine dermatitis conditions cause pain, tenderness and sensitivity. Where can you find an all-natural soothing relief? The answer is Madra Mór Soothing Mud, designed to promote healthy skin while combating canine skin problems such as dry skin, itching, blemishes, tenderness, bacteria, and hot spots. Soothing Mud uses mineral rich clay with high concentrations of colloidal oatmeal and nourishing, healing ingredients such as organic aloe vera powder, Allantion, borage oil, rice bran oil, Vitamin E and Zinc. These time tested skin care ingredients promote healthy cell regeneration, ease irritation related to itchy and scratchy skin, and hydrate dry skin.
