The True Cost of Grooming Doodle Breed Dogs: Why We Charge More

doodle grooming costs

As a professional grooming salon that specializes in caring for doodle breed dogs, we want to shed light on why our services come at a premium. Doodle breeds, including labradoodles, goldendoodles, and others, present unique challenges that require extra time, effort, and expertise from our groomers.

One of the main reasons for the higher cost associated with grooming doodle breeds is the physical exhaustion that comes with handling these dogs. Their coats can be dense, curly, and prone to matting, making the grooming process more labor-intensive and time-consuming. Our groomers go above and beyond to ensure that each doodle receives the individual care and attention they need, from start to finish.

The upkeep of a doodle’s coat is another factor that contributes to the increased cost of grooming. Regular brushing and combing are essential to prevent matting, which can be painful for the dog and often leads to the unfortunate necessity of a shave. This can be distressing for both the service providers and the family, as no one wants to see their beloved pet lose their fluffy coat due to matting issues.

At our salon, we are committed to educating doodle owners on the proper tools and techniques for maintaining their dog’s coat at home. We carry a selection of high-quality combs, brushes, and maintenance products that we recommend to make the grooming journey easier for both the owner and the dog. Our goal is to empower owners with the tools they need to keep their doodle’s coat in top condition between grooming appointments.

We also offer behavior management services to address fear and aggression that may stem from previous negative grooming experiences. Our goal is to create a positive and stress-free environment for both the dog and the groomer.

While we understand that grooming doodle breeds can be more expensive, we strive to keep our pricing competitive while still providing the tailored and individual care that each guest on our table deserves. From puppies to seniors, we care for each doodle throughout their life stages, ensuring they are comfortable and well-cared for during their visits.

It’s important to remember that you will likely see your professional groomer more often than your vet each year. Choosing the right groomer for your doodle is a significant decision that can impact their lifelong care and wellness. We invite you to consider us as your dog’s lifelong care partner, dedicated to providing top-notch grooming services and ensuring the well-being of your beloved doodle companion.
