Our Other Experts

Garrett Yamasaki, Founder

Garrett Yamasaki founded the original We Love Doodles blog back in 2016 when he was searching for a Goldendoodle puppy. There was a ton of misinformation on the web about doodles and dog breeders, so Garrett decided to create to help educate the public about this relatively new and fast growing breed. His blog quickly grew to over 1,000,000 pageviews per month.

In 2019, Garrett decided to create the best affordable dog grooming products which is when he started the We Love Doodles Shop. He works with the rest of the experts on our board to create the products.

Garrett has a mini F2B Goldendoodle named Kona. In his spare time, he enjoys fostering other dogs, volunteering at the humane society, and studying search engine optimization.

Kona, Mascot, Product Tester

Kona Bear is Garrett's F2B Mini Goldendoodle that was born in 2019. When he’s not playing fetch Chuck It balls, he’s cuddling on the couch.

If Kona could talk, he would demand more treats, belly rubs, and to go to the dog park. He’s arguably the most spoiled Golden Doodle in the world, but he tests all the products that we recommend.

Kona is the dog who gives the paws up or paws down! He personally tests all the products that we launch in our store.
