Doodle Series



Super Styling the Doodle

Sue Zecco & Jay Scruggs

“Designer Breeds,” like doodles, quickly became popular, and every groomer should know how to groom and maintain them. There is some challenge involved by deciding how to best groom them to accommodate and please your customers, while also making it easy to maintain for you and the owner. In this seminar, Jay will show you how to create a cute and stylish pet trim by using thinning shear and scissor techniques that are quick and easy to apply in your shop.

Holy Doodle!

Barbara Prueckel

We can all agree that Doodles are here to stay! These dogs can be challenging for groomers for many reasons. This is the first time that we have had a “breed” in our industry that has taken over the new client list tenfold. With so many sizes and coat textures, it is impossible to handle each client the same. In this seminar, Barb will cover different coat types, haircuts, pricing, and more. At least we can all agree that they are a huge moneymaker—if quotes and timesaving techniques come into play. They really are a lovable breed, all around.

Oddles of Doodles

Judy Hudson

Doodles are all the rage! Although we know them as mixed breeds, our clients have paid big bucks for a cross of crazy coat types and challenges that need special techniques and understanding by pet care professionals. But how do you make them look their best and create a manageable outline? Enjoy Judy as she takes you through a variety of ideas in a live grooming demo.

Huh? What Kind of Doodle is it?

Tammy Siert

Having trouble determining what kind of doodle your client has or the coat type? Tammy will give a short PowerPoint on the different doodles coming in our salons and the coat types, textures, and styles clients are requesting. She will also give suggestions on dealing with clients that insist on having inches of hair on their dogs but won’t maintain their coat at home. Additionally, she will do a demo on a Golden Doodle and show you shortcuts using clipper techniques.
