What Groomers Are Saying

Dear Groomers and Pet Salon Owners...

There are undeniable challenges that grooming salons face when it comes to managing the expectations of clients, especially those with Poodle mixes and dogs with different hair coats.

If you're a professional groomer, you're probably already well aware of the growing tension between groomers and owners of Poodle-mix dogs.

Here at Doodle Doods, a top resource for owners of Poodle-mix dogs, we hear from our readers about some recent bad grooming experience they’ve had, or their dissatisfaction with groomers in general. While we always want our readers to feel heard, we acknowledge that there is a disconnect…and it is 100% understandable why groomers are also becoming increasingly frustrated with Doodle owners.

I suppose you’re on the verge of denying new Doodle clients altogether - I get it.

I know you didn’t sign up for all of this. 

You became a groomer because you love and care deeply about animals.

You did not become a groomer because you love and care deeply about getting yelled at.

But it's time to embrace the truth

Doodles are here to stay. And like it or not, groomers like yourself are on the front lines of this hard battle.

However, consider the possibility that:

  1. Your Doodle clients are not aware that there’s a problem…
  2. Or your Doodle clients know there’s a problem, but they don’t know what the solution is…
  3. And more than likely, no one has taken the time to show or tell them.

As a professional groomer, perhaps it’s in your best interest to turn inward and see if there’s a way to work this out.

There is. It’s our new book "Coat Care Secrets For Poodle Mixes"

Which you can resell at your salon or include in your client onboarding package.

This book is a comprehensive resource that educates owners of Poodle mixes about all things coat care and the overall grooming experience. It helps the layperson understand and master Doodles’ unique coat care requirements, as well as how to better communicate with groomers such as yourself.

And, it can be the perfect tool for optimizing your client onboarding process, enhancing communication with owners of Poodle mixes, and setting clear expectations right from the beginning.
