The ONLY way to brush your Labradoodle effectively
How do you feel when you're grooming your Doodle?
Do you feel at all rushed? Trying to get it over with pronto?
Or do you instead regard it as some quality alone time with your Doodle. Nice and easy?
And how is your Doodle behaving?
Does he trust you blindly?
Does he use his whole bag of tricks to get away from your brush?
Or does he feel playful, trying to snatch that brush (and your hand) whenever he can?
Your Doodle being uneasy or relaxed speaks volumes about your own physical and mental state at that time.
During my workshops, I noticed many dog owners brush their dogs quite roughly: hard, fast and applying a lot of pressure.
Most aren't aware that they're doing it. Not until after I point it out to them.
But have you ever tried to brush your dog in a calm, quiet way?
And did you notice what effect that has?
The sheer difference in behaviour?
Take my word for it: the difference is huge.
Brushing is a way of touching your dog.
And touching always has a healing effect.
Most of us could have done with more touching in our lives.
It embodies attention and love: loving attention.
Being seen for who you are.
And you're not the only one who calms down by touching and being touched: your Doodle benefits from it in just the same way.
But the touch has to be a loving one for that to happen. Soft, gentle, and with all the right intentions.
Don’t do it hastily, rough or fast, fast, fast. That doesn't help anyone.
As soon as you learn to brush your Doodle in a calm tempo, you too will become more relaxed.
Your Doodle will actually calm down because of two things.
A. He can sense your loving approach.
B. He automatically responds to your calm energy.
What's more, you'll notice that if you use the brush in a calm way, the brushing itself becomes much more effective.
Two birds with one stone.
How great is that?
Most things in life are amazingly simple. And that's precisely why they work so well.
I would like you to experience how simple and amazing brushing can be.
I can't wait to see your reaction!
If you are eager to learn more about how to take the wellbeing of your Doodle in to your own hands, please download my FREE ebook on the left side of this page.
Also: my book about Doodle coat care and comfort is finally being published! I've had the manuscript stashed away for over two years now (on my laptop), but I have finally found a publisher that loved it.
This book is unlike any book on Labradoodles that you have ever read. It teaches you all about grooming, basic care, food, allergies etc.
Not only the HOW, but also the WHY.
It's a handbook on Doodle wellbeing that every Doodle owner should have and that's why I (as a Dutch woman) wrote it in English.
There are thousands of Doodle owners in the world and most of them deal with the issues and questions you are dealing with right now.
I am having some Doodle owners proof read it for me at this moment and they are all saying "I wish I had this book when I got my Doodle, it would have saved me so much frustration and so many hours researching information that everybody had a different answer to"
The book is print on demand, meaning that you will be able to order it online and then my publisher sends a printed copy to your home address.
If you are interested to know more, please send me your email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. The publisher will then send you a promotional email with the sales link as soon as the book becomes available (somewhere in August).
Lots of Doodle love,
Wanda & Joy
