First Time Doodle Owner

Well, I should say she owns me!  I have had my Goldendoodle, Dulcie, for 5 weeks and I ADORE this dog!  She is an F1b, just turned 14 weeks on Friday and weighs about 14 lbs (up from the 6.7 lbs she weighed at 9 weeks when I brought her home).  Anyone have a "guesstimate" on how big she might be as an adult? (Mom was an 18" moyen poodle, dad a 17" f1 goldendoodle.)

  I have had dogs all my life, from a border collie mix to several different poodle mixes and an insane :)  rescued Jack…

Hello Everyone,

I thought I'd update you all on how Bolt is doing. Bolt has got sit, stay, paw (shake), crawl, and Lay-down, down perfectly. Bolt has almost mastered come, but outside he gets a little distracted also when his cat siblings are around. Bolt isn't responding to the Bell training method, but so far we have not had anymore accidents. So, far I have been adjusting my schedule to take him out every 20 minutes. I am in the process of teaching him the "speak" command.…

United Kingdom

I was just wondering if someone could shed some light on why a lot of people from United Kingdom have signed up privately?  I would love to say hello and see their Doodles.

Walking without pulling.

Any advice on teaching your puppy not to pull on their leash? Our little guy has tonsillitis and the vet wants us to use a harness, which of course makes sense, but will he just think it's a license to pull? I don't like using a training collar to correct him but he really pulls when we go for a walk.

It's been a while...

And so many new Doodle friends and their humans have joined this site. Welcome, we’re a great bunch! Beginning with Auntie Blue and Shadow and Sunny that started it all and Auntie Grace and Pemon that are the official “Welcoming Committee” on the site. But there’s tons of great humans and doodles on here that are a lot of fun and that have stories to share and training tips (human training and even puppy training) . Anyway, it’s been a while since I wrote my last entry and it’s partly…

My sweet baby is turning into an adolecent.....

My sweet little Olliver is getting so big he is 15 weeks old today and weighing in at 18lbs! We went to the vet yesterday and she said that he needs to put on a little more weight, I was following the recommended feeding instructions that were on the food but since he is so active( understatement of the century) he may need a little more than the recommended amount. He has also gotten a little naughty as he has aged....all small things that we will continuously work on. He sheds like it is… Continue

My first Day at work.

Today I went to work with mommy because she wants me to learn to be a little lady around the women and child that live here with us at the Shelter. I do really good out side in the yard and when I am in town with Dad, but I get overly excited inside when all the women and children are coming to check in for the night. So daddy bought a gate and put it across the door of mommy's office. Today I learned to sit by mom when someone comes to her door until she tells me I can visit. I also learned…

My First Doodle! My Experiences, and Questions

A few days before Easter we added our new Doodle BOLT, to the family! It was love at first sight, but took some convincing and research to get my husband on our side (mine and the kids), as fate would have it we saw BOLT was then "Bear" at the park with his brother, they were the last two of the litter and needed homes fast. BOLT came right up to us wanting attention, he was friendly out going and so plush! :) I knew the breeder and made an appointment to see him again later that day to see…

Birthday Girl

Today is my first birthday and daddy bought me a hat and took me to the park to play. He told me I was way more fun than any old man should be allowed to have. I am not sure what old man means but I think is means some one who loves me even when I have munched his 3ed pair of eye glass frames and when I steal his hats or his shoes. And plays ball with me even when he is tired. And takes me for long walks and lets me lay in his lap. Oh yes he also takes me in the truck with him when he has…

Puppy on the way!

We have a puppy on the way!

We're adopting one from an approved Breeder from this website/community.
Born on 30th March.... He's from a litter of 6 & the only male!

Apricot/light cream colour and bred from a sunset golden retriever dam and an apricot/cream sire medium poodle.

So he should (~could) be a medium size Goldendoodle :)

Counting down the weeks.

Will post some photo's soon :)

Spring time!

I haven't been the best at updates lately, we've been very busy!  But, everyday Mowgli continues to steal every tiny piece of our heart we have left.  He is everything that was promised of a golden doodle...and so much more.


One major difference we have noticed is his mellow attitude.  He still mouths...he continues to lose teeth quite frequently, but, we think he is nearing the end of that.  We are able to have him in bed with us as we unwind without him chewing on the…

Love and Comfort

I have been so busy that I felt like I was neglecting my online family!  I just wanted to drop in and say how in love I am!  Opie is 5months old basically (depends if your counting by weeks or months) and he is an absolutely amazing companion.  He loves the ENTIRE family but it is by my side that he sticks.  When I am cooking he is laying right at my feet (sometimes we have to do a the kitchen tango to save myself from falling on my face when he doesnt get out of the way fast enough)  when I…

First Time Puppy Owner Guide!!!

When I was 4 years old my two older brothers sent me in to ask my dad for a dog. They knew I was Daddy's girl and he could never say "no" to me, well he did. That Christmas I received a Snoopy stuffed animal (Which I still have :). I decided when I grew up and owned a home of my own I would get a dog. Well that was easier said than done, but at the age of 39 I am first time "Pet Parent," I am almost three weeks in and I love her sooooo much, but she is a LOT of work. My friends say I need to…

Toys for Doodles

Hello everyone,  have any of you used Dollarama toys???  We went to the pet store yesterday and purchased some toys but then the cheap side of me went to the dollar store to purchase some more, but on the irde home I just got a sickening feeling in my stomach, I just felt like I was going to be letting my new puppy chew on BPA or melamine or anything toxic!  Should I be worried, have any of you had any bad experiences with dollarama toys or are there any good toys I should be buying!  I…

Pemon has a new trick!

When I leave the house, if Mark is not home I put Pemon in his crate.  Mark usually tries to get home while I am gone.  So when Mark gets home he let's Pemon out.  When I would get home, Mark would make Pemon sit on the couch in the family room which is near the front door and make him wait until I would get in the house and shut the door.  (Remember I walk with a walker)  Well, the last two times, Pemon now runs and gets in to his crate and waits until he hears the door shut and then he…

Back Home!!

This morning we borrowed a large kennel from the Well Mannered Dog Center.  When I called and told the owner what had happened, she was so upset.  She said anything she can do to help, just let her know.  So, we asked about a kennel and she was glad to let us use it.  Since his "condo" is hard flooring that might be slippery, we thought the kennel in the living room would be best for him for a few days.


We picked Gizmo up around 3pm today.  The first thing we heard from the…
