Formal training??

Picking up our little doodle girl next week!! 

Do any of you recommend formal obedience training? If so, when do you start?  There are not many options in my area for training so I am wondering if clicker training or something similar is easily done on my own.

Counting down the days to pick up our new doodle but having a hard time choosing!! HELP!

We are soon to be new doodle parents!! We love the classic doodle look. The breeder says all of them are calm and have great personalities so it just comes down to looks.

Any thoughts on what this doodle will look like??…

Looking to adopt a young goldendoodle

My wife and I were in and out of Africa for nearly 7 years. We're finally settled back into a routine here in Huntington Beach, CA and ready to add a dood to our household. We're just starting to live on Retirement income, so we have a limited budget. Any help we can get would be greatly appreciated! Please contact me through this site to discuss!

Thanks!

Using this site on an ipad

I Love this site and I prefer it over all others, but I have to admit I haven’t been very regular for a while and it’s simply because I use my IPad or iPhone for pretty much everything and it takes forever to post anything using them.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks to speed things up?

Quinn Can't Get a Break

I hesitated to post this, there has been so much sadness, but I am hoping this story has a happy ending.

Quinn just came home after spending 3 days in critical care (yes again). This time it is not his seizures. He was admitted due to protein loss and a platelet count of zero!! These are the results of a multitude of tests:

Normal kidney function and liver function;…

Gizmo is Hanging In There

Gizmo Update:  Had bloodwork this morning.  Not great, but not terrible.  His BUN was 78.7 and his Creatinine was 6.2.  On Sept. 18th (his first appointment) the BUN was 116.9 & Creatinine 5.9.  So we are making progress.  If he would drink more water his creatinine should come down more.  He is playing like a puppy and interested in rides and people and other fun stuff.  He gets tired very easily and eats when I can coax him to eat.  He's been a real lover and a velcro dog.  We don't…

Sad news

On Sunday we lost Bentley to GDV. What an awful medical nightmare. On hour we are playing fetch next hour we are rushing him to the emergency vet. Then next hour we were home with just his collar. Bentley joined our family in June of this year. He was 8 year old happy active doodle who loved to play ball. We were blessed to have him in our pack. If you are not familiar with GDV please look it up and know the signs. Surgery is the only possible option but it is not a guarantee. Brodie and… Continue

healthy doodles

For seven yrs Izzi has been a healthy dog...  but (there is always a but is there not?) Recently She was losing hair. small patch lead to larger patch...  Vet ran blood tests and found she has developed an issue with her thyroid.   Now 3 months later she has regrown/filled in the patches.   The new growth is light brown.  I think the genetics of the original cross breed has shown itself..  she's is an F1 Goldendoodle.     Unlike many full blooded breeds that have known health issues, we…

One More Update on Gizmo ....

He was home from Friday to today (Tuesday).  He did really well eating and drinking and peeing over the first two days.  The vet had given us K/d wet canned food as well as the dry food.  Friday & Saturday he couldn't wait for it to get into his bowl.  He'd eat it all, drink a couple cups of water and ask to go outside.  We thought "WOW, he's doing so well.  Maybe he will come out of it ok".

Until Sunday .... he decided not to drink much and refused to eat AGAIN!  I could get him…

Gizmo is home!

We were able to pick Gizmo up from the vet this afternoon.  He is not out of the woods yet, but good enough to come home for now.  We have to bring him back on Tuesday for another blood draw.

He's eating K/d (Hills brand) canned and dry food combined.  He loves it!  And he's drinking water out of his bowl.  He did pull his IV out last night, but it's been in since Monday p.m., so he must be feeling better.  No treats or anything else can be injested ... only his food.

When we…

Update on Gizmo

UPDATE on Gizmo ...Terry just talked to Doc about Gizmo (around 9:30 a.m.).  He ate a full can of food at 5:00 last night and one this morning.  He was looking at his bowl wondering why it was empty when Terry talked to Doc a few min ago. If his blood work is as good as what Gizmo looks like today, we will be able to come home tomorrow. He has not bothered the IV or tubes at all. Trying not to get my hopes up cuz it could change.  But his appetite is back and that's a good…

So good to see us BACK!!!

Hello EVERYONE! Some real traumas seem to have brought us back together... hurricanes... and some very terrifying health issues for humans and hounds alike! But it is so heartwarming to once again see the familiar names. It's good to see some new members as well, and even more good (I know... poor grammar :P) to see some of the veterans adding well-wishes and support to these new members.…

Seizure Set-back for Quinn

Hi Doodle Friends - First, Quinn is currently doing well--hopefully headed in a positive direction. . .

Just over a week ago, Quinn had an early AM seizure. I was disappointed when it started because he had been on a long stretch without, however, the disappointment turned to terror when shortly thereafter, he had a second seizure, and then a third. We raced to the nearest ER where he then had a fourth. They got him hooked up to a sedative IV, and he was on that for 6 hours. After a…

THE CROUSE HOUSE

Hi Guys:

Had to have my right leg amputated too, but am doing extremely well.  We are preparing for Hurricane Irma and it's late so I can chat much.  I promise to be in touch after the storm.

Anyone else in the path of this monstrous storm, please stay safe.

Love to you all.

Need Help

We have a 6-month-old  male Goldendoodle named Jasper. My daughter who is away at college brought him before going back to school. The dog can not live at school this year so he is living with my husband and me who are 57 with some health issues. He did go to a puppy obedience class which he did fairly well in, however, we are having some major difficulties with him. He barks incisively if one of us leave the room, or home. He is sleeping in a crate which he was doing well in until a few…
