Hello Old Friends!

It's been waaaay too long since I've posted in this community, and I apologize for that. I have thought of you all, but just haven't had the energy to touch base. We've been on quite a roller coaster for over 6 months now. Gracie is GREAT! She just turned 8 and you would think she just turned 2. She is healthy and happy and full of life and love and energy. Quinn... well, Quinn can't seem to catch a break. In the spring, he was diagnosed with immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (ITP) and we…

New Goldendoodle owner needs advice.

Hello was hoping for some words or wisdom and advice. We have an overly aggressive 4 1/2 month old female Goldendoodle. She is beyond aggressive with my 11 year old. I’m sure CoCo thinks she’s “playing” but it’s hurting my son. She has also done this to my other 2 sons and my husband. She hasn’t been that agressive towards me.

We tried the ignore and remove yourself from the room but when you return she starts back up. She will Lunge at them and staring biting. My poor son is so upset… Continue

Sweet Baby Pedro,

It’s not only people that have influenced me in my almost 50 years, it’s been every puppy that I have ever met and spent time with. You, of course, being my baby boy, even more.

You have filled my life with pure,…

Poop bags - an idea

Hi All,

Some of you may be like me, having to pick up after your dog as soon as they, ahem, poop.

I started out with the bags sold specifically for this purpose.  I found I had a problem with them being so narrow, that I had trouble picking up the poop (my hands are too big?!?).  I also objected to the price.

Here's the bags I buy - the 7 x 12":…

Dog food for 1 yr old Mini Goldendoodle

I have a 1 yr old mini goldendoodle. I have been feeding her Life’s Abundance Life Stages since we brought her home. Recently we did some lab work on her and her ph level was elevated. Our vet thought it was from her food. It wasn’t sure high and he wasn’t overly concerned but I want to avoid the issue before it becomes a problem. So I have been researching new food and am completely overwhelmed. Price does not matter and from the new heart issues with grain free...scared to try that too. I…

Follow your instincts

I'd been feeding my dogs Earthborn Holistics grain free fish formula for years.  About a year ago, they started having loose stools with the new bag of food.  I never occurred to me that the manufacturer had changed the formula as drastically as they did.  It wasn't until late July of this year that I looked at the ingredients list (online), and realized that they had made drastic changes to the formula.  I believe when I started my dogs on that food, it listed "fish meal", fish, potato, etc…

My poor Bella!

On Friday she had her second grooming.  I handed the groomer a written detail of what I wanted done and stood there while she read it.  When I picked her up I wanted to cry.  She was cut down everywhere but her ears and part of her tail to 1/4 of an inch.  My paper said " Please do not cut her ears, beard, mustache or from the base of her tail down.  The groomer said I stood there after she read it and told her to cut her all over to an inch.  She also has big bare spots behind her ears and…

Beau needs your help!

Beau is a 5 month old goldendoodle we adopted knowing that he had a permanent head tilt, which the breeder believed the dog mom stepped on him and caused the head tilt. After many vet visits and being put on prednisone, the head tilt has decreased in severity. Even though his head tilt is getting better, his neurologist still think its critical that he gets a brain MRI to determine if it is indeed from trauma or if it is a congenital disorder. We all know how expensive the vet is, especially…

Gentle leader

I finally listened to hubby and put a gentle leader on Bella.  Wow!  What a difference walking is now.  She walks beside me, no pulling and no stopping.  I am 7th heaven and can now enjoy our walks and take more then one a day.  I would tell everyone to start their puppy on a gentle leader because the difference in walking Bella is amazing.

Stinky doodle

Help!!! I just brought my puppy home yesterday she has a terrible odor. It’s so bad that it gags me when I pick her up. I took her to the vet and she’s healthy but he noticed her smell and told me to bathe her. I did and that didn’t work. Anyone else had this issue with their goldendoodle??

Breeder Question

Hi! I was wondering if anyone purchased an F1B goldendoodle from Brewers Goldendoodles in Cincinnati, Ohio? Specifically, Melody and Phoenix’s litter in the spring of 2014 would be great. I also have a pup from that litter and I was looking to connect with families of his siblings. Thanks!

Breeder question?

I saw a really cute mini golden doodle the other day and asked the lady where she got it. She said she got it from a breeder in Scotia Nebraska. Does anyone have any contact information for Christy Harmsmeyer? She is the only person I could find on google in Scotia. I’m curious to know if she is still breeding? Any information anyone has would be most helpful. My boyfriend and I are looking to get our first mini doodle! We live in Iowa but are willing to travel within a reasonable distance:)

Looking for my first Goldendoodle

Hey Everyone! 

I am pretty new to the goldendoodle community and am looking for some help and guidance. I’ve been looking to get a dog for a while now and had the chance to watch my friend’s goldendoodle this past weekend and fell in love with him. I was looking at getting one about 6 months to 3 years old but have no idea where to look. I also thought about getting a puppy but my landlord won't allow it. He wants the dog to be…
