Smart Dog...and now a conundrum...

Before I got Molly, my now 10-week old goldendoodle, I was told that this was a very intelligent hybrid breed. I believe it. She has learned several tricks, all of which she picked up in the same day we introduced them to her. We placed poochie bells on the door for her to learn to "tell" us when she needs to go out. It seems like she figured this out right away. She lets us know when she needs to go potty, but she has also learned that ringing them gets her outside, and ringing the bells…

I never thought I could love a dog as much as my late Minature Pinscher Sam. I will not give up on Charlie. I was in a car accident last year. I have problems with my balance. This Doodle was locked in a basement and not paid attention to at all. When we take walks, If I lose my balance he braces me. How does this dog know? Charlie will do it before I do. Charlie needs me and I need him. I loves Doodles and Bostons of course. We can never leave out our little Daphney…

Boating with your doodle

This will be my first boating season with my new doodle. Can anyone offer boating advice?
For example:

We have a cabin cruiser and stay overnight during the weekends. Do you have any idea what kind of crate works well and folds down. Space is a luxury on the boat. So suggestions and sizes would be helpful.

Help for Separation Anxiety


I have a 4 month old petite goldendoodle who I've had for a month now. He has been displaying the following behaviour - barking in the crate at night (had been crate trained for a month with the breeder), going pee and poo in the crate, following my every step, barking when I leave for work in the morning, breaking out of the kitchen (he has the run of it during the day due to the crate problems) and house soiling (he will break past the gate at the bottom of the stairs to…

Gracie-Doo Our Furry Pet!

Gracie came to live at our house in December 2009. Our kids are just starting to leave home and we finally decided that now we had time to care properly for a dog. We had been running into the odd Doodle here and there and we were alway impressed with their silly fur, quirky personalities, and by the fact that the ones we had met seemed so smart and gentle. We hadn't heard a bad word and thought that this was the way to go. We weren't wrong! Gracie has been one of the best things we've done…

Two Goldendoodles in the family now....brothers :-)

We lost our husky/lab mix back in December and we finally talked the hubby into getting a Goldendoodle. We named him Chase...he is just a lover. I kept in touch with the breeder to let her know how Chase was doing. She had told me she had one more male dog left and would just give him to us. Crazy us - went and got the brother for Chase. We named him Chance.

They sure keep us busy! They like to chew on everything.

We are still having problems with them peeing…

Has anyone ever had their dog throw up while they were in the teething stage?

Clover is eating less, very tired, threw up early yesterday morning and wont come up the stairs right now....we aren't sure what is wrong with her. Is it possible that its a symptom of teething?

Puppy lost 2 teeth

Hello, I was wondering what everyone does for their pups when they are losing their teeth? My puppy was chewing on his toy and I noticed some blood on it. I looked in his mouth and I saw 2 teeth were missing! There were little holes where his teeth were, which I suppose is normal, but I can't see any new teeth growing yet. Does anyone have any suggestions on toys to use while they are losing their teeth?

Looking for older goldendoodle puppy or young adult goldendoodle

Hello everyone!

My best friend who lives in Scottsdale, AZ recently lost her beloved Golden Retriever who they loved for 9 years. They are heartbroken and are looking for a goldendoodle to love. They have an adult autistic son who is the most gentle and loving young man - he misses their dog terribly. My friend is a craft designer, who works from home and would be available 24/7 to care for this special dog. As well, her son loves to go for walks with their first dog. If you…

Crate/Barking/Soiling Help!

Hi - it was a complicated post title because this seems to be a multi-faceted problem, lol! (Oh if only I felt like laughing about this!)

Here is the background. I got Coby at 12 weeks, crate trained from the breeder. The first few nights with me he freaked out in the crate and had numerous accidents (poo and pee) and barked all night long (I was getting up to let him out throughout the night, so he wasn't barking because he had to go to the bathroom, he was just frantic to…

goldendoodle sizes, can you help us? thx!

Hi all! We are new to the goldendoodle community. We are just shopping for one now and need some help on what size we want to get. I can not picture the different sizes and what 10lbs does for a dog. Can anyone send us pictures of their dogs standing up and tell me how many pounds they are? I will really appreciate it. It seems like a 20lb goldendoodle looks bigger than a dog of a different breed who is 20lbs. Is 20 really small?? I feel like a 20lb goldendoodle will look like many of the other… Continue

Growing Pains?

Have any of your mini goldendoodles experienced growing pains? Molly has had lameness after running really hard and playing for about 5 months. Today when she gets up from laying down she wimpers. She sits up first and then starts to hobble. I took her to the vet 2 months ago and they did complete xrays and nothing showed. I read about this online, but wish there was more I could do.

On a happier note our training is going well. Molly was at the dog park for the first time…
