Doodle Training

Ok-so i've been trying to work with louie and it's not going so well.  He thinks everything is a game...i go to get his lease ( and he looooves being outside) but as soon as i get the lease he takes off running and plays dead.  He won't budge once i have him ready to go.  Also he doesn't like treats so i haven't been able to get him to sit, lay down, come, or anything on command because he couldn't care less about getting a treat.  Basically he is just really stubborn! Any good advice??? I…

Who is Grace Johnson?

Don't know why all of us got the same messages from her, but suspect it is spam.

I reported it to the web master and suggest that more of us do so.

Doodle Stalker?

What do you think?

Only Child

So, Louie is my only child.  I take him to play a lot with my friends' dogs.  He is in love with other dogs.  I feel like for a few days after his play dates he is depressed without his I just making this up???? :)  I was just wondering how many of you went out and got your doodle a companion? And if you did get another dog, did you get another doodle? I can't imagine getting anything but a doodle now!

Doodle Nose Color

My doodle Phoenix started out with a black nose. However, it has slowly turned a dark brown, still with some black. A elderly dog expert told me the change in  color is from drinking from metal bowls and to stop this I should use ceramic bowls. 

Has anyone heard this theory or is it simply genetics. have your dogs noses lost their black?

Farley's home again

Farley's home again!

What a great vet I have!  He went to the clinic to feed Farley @ 1 am and later in the day took him for a couple of walks to check for progress.  All the blood tests showed many things he DOESN'T have - which is a good thing to know.  And by next weekend Farley should be finished his aquatherapy for his cruceate surgery rehab. 

I'm really hoping to stay away from all vets for a L O N G time!  Cross your fingers!

Here we go again ...a continuing saga of Farley & the vet

Farley and I were invited to my son's house 100 kms away for Mothers' Day where we overnighted.  The next day I drove my daughter-in-law and grandson 100kms to Toronto (in the opposite direction) to catch a flight to London & Paris. LUCKY DUCKS!!!!!!  So when we were passing through my town, I dropped off Farley and asked my Farley-loving neighbours to look after him.  Well that was Monday and shortly after, all hell broke loose with his digestive system.  He would keep food down for 12…

New Pictures of Pemon

I just posted some new pictures of Pemon with his latest hair cut.  It was done a week ago and I swear it has grown already.  Had him at the Vets today and are you ready?  He's weighing in at 93 lbs.  As you can see by the pictures he is far from fat.


The other pictures he is having a catch with Mark, which we end up doing two to three times a day.  He just loves it!


O.K.  I have a questions for anyone that can give me some advice about allergies.  Does anyone…

Japanese police dog association Training champion acquisition!


Her name is "KURUMI". I am the dog which bred.

Other ten or more dog species were participating.

She extracted other dog species and won the victory.   It is a wonderful inspiring feat!!

I am getting my dog Louie groomed for the very first time (he is 8months) tomorrow and i'm really nervous.  I love his long fluffy hair, but I'm thinking the summer will be way too hot for him.  Does everyone typically groom short for the summer??? Also, I just got him two months ago and he loves being brushed, but there were already mats in his hair so he has to be shaved!!! I'm so sad.  What kind of brush is good to use for these dogs? I am going to start over with his hair and keep him…

Goldendoodles and exercise

I have a 8 week old Goldendoodle called "Millie".  I took her to the vets yesterday for her first inoculaton.  I was discussing a few matters with my Vet - the most important being how much exercise she should have as puppy. (I believe G.D's can get hip dyplasia)  I read that you should not exercise a G.D. too much as there bones are soft etc etc.  My Vet said to me that that was not the case and exercise was good for them as the more…

When is her coat going to come through?

Hi, we have a three month old Goldendoodle (2nd gen). At the moment her coat is still pretty flat and moulting!! Is this usual, all the pics I have seen are of fluffy little puppies! Our girl is good as gold and a sweetheart - but I am not sure she is ever going to look  like a doodle! Is this usual? Thanks.
