Grooming your own dog will be so rewarding. It well help you to build a great understanding of your dog, as well as being relaxing and fun too.
Australian Labradoodles are gentle loving dogs, with unique coat requirements so launching them through a conveyor belt system of grooming just doesn't do them justice. Australian Labradoodle's need time and patience which most busy salons just do not have. I was tired of seeing these dogs being shaved like sheep and clipped like poodles, with no identity of their own, through my love of this amazing breed, I decided to train to be a scissor cut specialist.

These dogs are just fabulous; they are my life and I love them all.
Here's how it works. When your Puppy is 6 months old I will travel to your home, (there is a map showing the area I cover) or alternatively you can travel to me.

I am there to help you, with any grooming issues you may have including cheeky tips to help to keep them still.
Prior to the appointments, I ask that all Dogs are bathed and combed through.
Don't forget, NEVER bath a matted coat. This will cause the knots to tighten so always comb them through first, prior to bathing.
As you develop your skills you can contact me, as often as you like, and I'll guide you through the coming months.
It is a sad truth that busy grooming salons do not have the time to groom Australian Labradoodles in a traditional manner. Launching them through a conveyor belt system of grooming just does not do them justice, neither does it give the desired look.
If you live too far away to benifit from my training I recommend that you find a groomer who has experience of grooming Australian Labradoodles. Try to find a groomer who works from home. If you book a groom prior to the age of 8 months old do not allow them to clip the coat as this will cause coat damage.
To achieve the traditional look of the Australian Labradoodle they need to be scissor cut . A full scissor cut will take between 2-3 hours which is time a busy salon just does not have. Your Australian Labradoodle will need to be cut every 5-10 weeks (depending on coat length)
Basic grooming (which in busy salons will generally involve clipping the coat which should be avoided) will cost a minimum of £40.
If you are able to find a scissor cut specilist in your area they some will charge you in the region of £65 so it is easy see that learning to groom your dog yourself will be very rewarding as well as extremely cost effective.
