This is the BEST brush for Doodles–especially Goldendoodles! I recommend this product to my doodle clients specifically for many reasons. Firstly, the bristles are rounded to not hurt and scrape skin when brushing, yet strong enough to get through dense curly coats. Secondly, the bristles are long enough to get ALL OF THE WAY down to the skin–working almost like a comb. And lastly, the construction of the brush is incredibly solid (made of solid wood–not cheap plastic) and will be the only brush you need because it will last for years to come!
