"I have a 9 week old ALD puppy with a loose, wavy, fleece coat and I'm trying to get her used to being groomed by gently brushing her daily for short periods of time.  I'm just not sure what I can expect of her yet as far as standing…"

"Fish oil is the best, but for many dogs it causes loose stools.  If that happens with your pup, try the EPO.  It doesn't seem to have the same effect on digestion."

"I'm going to try the fish oil. Not sure if a 14 week puppy can have it, but I will check with my vet. We had a lot of luck with fish oil with our last dog. He was an eskipoo."

"You can buy a giant bottle of EPO capsules or fish oil capsules at Costco if you are a member :)  I used to give the EPO ones to Luna."

"Omega 3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil or evening primrose oil supplements might also help with texture. "

"Is part of the problem with the shampoo/conditioner you use?  I can't really give you advise on which to choose, I'm just throwing it out that it might be something to look into to help with hair texture or make it easier to brush…"

"This post is not about me. You can read all about me on my websites for one. Do what you think is best for your Doodle. Try both brushes if you are not shure. I have given my advice which is all I wanted because knowledge gives the power to make…"

"Thanks, but I've lived with Poodles and Poodle mixes for more than 60 years and don't need advice on how to care for their coats. There are also better brushes for Poodle-like coats; Chris Christensen's coral slicker for one, which…"

"Offcourse a course flat coat needs different treatment then plush fluffy coats. Not even brushing. But that's so obvious that it doesn't need mentioning. In my book I mention how to care for every different coat type. It is far too much…"

"Wanda:There is no such thing as the "best" brush for every doodle, because every doodle has a different kind of coat. Doodles' coats range from flat like a Lab's to long and straight like a Collie's, through every variation…"

Wanda Klomp replied to Mindy Hillegass's discussion Help me groom my puppy! in the group Doodle Grooming
"Don't brush her too much, because of over-brushing effect. I think the shedding is caused by the mix of different breeds. Sometimes the labrador retriever genes get the upperhand. Best brush for every Doodle is the Activet red matzapper. Try to…"

"Ohh okay, I always thought that "teddy bear" cut was the puppy cut.  Dr. Google shows me the difference ;)"

"Pick up a shedding rake with rotating pins at a local pet supply store. They are inexpensive and really help. You'll also want to invest in a good brush. I use Chris Christensen brushes on my Poodle and also used them on my doodle. "

"Thank you so much for the information. I will check out your FB page. Do you think there's hope for her to stop shedding once she gets her adult coat? "

"I do brush her, but probably not as much as I should. I swear the shedding gets worse!! The brush is a paddle brush with soft/medium pins."
