Depending on your Doodles coat, you will need different equipment and products.
We use only Best shot products for washing & conditioning on all our coats. We have been using it for almost 7 years and see no need for any other brand. It is especially good for the non-shed coats to keep them silky and mat free.
We purchase the following at PetEdge:
These are also available in gallon size for a very fair price. Dilute the shampoo & conditioner with water to make them easier to absorb.
When the snow hits, those with the non-shed coats tend to drag in snow balls! We have found that if you use Cowboy Magic de-tangeler & shine on their legs, it will tend to repel a lot of this. Be warned however....it can cause your floors to be a bit slippery, and could possibly cause you to slip! This can also be found in many feed stores or can be ordered by them.
