Hi Wanda, I am wondering if it might make more sense to promote your workshops via another method. Our community guidelines state that DK should not be used "as a means to advertise your site/products/services or to solicit customers/members."

Do you have a work permit to be able to work in the US? Otherwise your trip might end already with the stop at the immigration officer. I don't think they'll buy that you take all the grooming equipment with you on holidays with an ESTA tourist visa. Just something to consider to avoid disappointment and potential problems for you Wanda.

If I gave One of the workshops on saturday 8th March, who would be interested? Details on
Comment by Wanda Klomp on February 23, 2014 at 5:19am

Here are some details about the Doodle grooming workshops in Oregon in 2 and 3 weeks.

It is a 1 day workshop in which you will learn both the basic and the advanced grooming.

Dates: 4,6, 11, 13 th March
Location: Portland or Sherwood Tualatin (depends on which location is free for rent)
Time: from 10.00 am to 18.00 pm incl lunch
Rate: 20 people is $ 500,00 pp, 25 people is $ 400,00 pp (special pilot prices, because these are my first grooming workshops in America :-) For $ 150 extra you can bring your partner or child

Because I am planning to rent a space I need to know how many participants I can count on, before I rent it.

Would you please do me a favor and e-mail me before tomorrow (Monday 24th February) on
1. A final YES or NO + if you want to bring your partner or 1 child
2. A recent photo of your Doodle + info about it’s size (mini, medium or standard), age and if it’s the first time grooming or not (I need this info to select the right grooming equipment)
3. If you can not bring your own Doodle, would you like to borrow one from one of the Orgeon breeders?
4. Which date you prefer (I have to make groups consisting of 5 or 6 people, and fill 4 or 5 workshops)
5. If there is anything I need to consider regarding lunch (allergies etc)

I am going to rent one of the locations tomorrow (Monday) and will let you know the adress and other details later this week. I will have my webmaster build a save online payment option, so that everything has been taken care off when you do the workshop and all you have to do is show up and enjoy the day.

Hope to see you soon!

Love, Wanda

The Doodle self-grooming workshops will be held either in Portland or in Sherwood in the 1st and 2nd week of March. Will anybody that showed an interest contact me, so that I can do a headcount, make a nice final price offer and put things in gear? :-) XXX

~HEY, where are all you PORTLAND AREA DOODLE humans?

Comment by Wanda Klomp on February 14, 2014 at 9:53am

I think I got it! In trying to find out how to make my grooming workshop in Oregon possible (as a first workshop abroad of many I hope), I have now created workshop prizes based on a sliding scale discount  This way many people get the chance to do a workshop for an affordable price. I left out the grooming tables and made package options for those who would love to buy the right grooming equipment. This way everybody get's what they want, no hidden costs and better yet: everybody get's to learn how to groom their Doodle professionally, in a natural looking way  

I am happy, so I hope you will be too. Read the details on my website:

After getting some feedback on my plan to give grooming workshops in Oregon in the week of 7 March and the week after that, I have decided to take another approach: price based on quantity. If you are inter
rested please join my Doodle Comfort FB page, so I can do a headcount and make a final once in a lifetime offer. This will probably be the only time I will be in Oregon and I really want to make this happen, so I hope to give you an offer you can't resist :-) Love, Wanda

Hi everybody, If there is enough interest, I will be coming to Portland in the week of 7th March and give One or more Doodle grooming workshops. There are 2 price options, info on workshops. The more participants, the more workshops I will give, each with 5 people because I want to give personal attention and quality. The travelling costs (flight, hotel, food, location rent) will be divided over the number of participants, so the more the cheaper :-) I mean to video 1 workshop and use it as an example so people can see How They work and would like to give a discount in return. When I know how many people are definitely interested, I can make an calculated offer. Please let me know. I would LOVE to make this happen :-) xxx

Hi Rita, dreams do come true :-) I have developed a 1 day Doodle grooming group workshop that I would love to give wherever people want me to. I have got requests from Doodle owners in the UK, but also in LA, so anything is possible and If you know 5 people or more that would love to do a workshop, please email me on and I will send you the details :-) xxx
