Height, Weight The size of the Dood depends on its parentage. A general rule of thumb is to add both the parents weights together and divide by 2 to get an average adult weight on the puppies. Within any litter there may be puppies that fall above or below the projected adult weights.

Standard - A Goldendoodle that is predicted to be 45 lbs or more at adulthood.

Medium - A Goldendoodle that is predicted to be 30-45 lbs at adulthood.

Miniature - A Goldendoodle that is… Continue

Training Humans - part two

When it comes to food and treats, humans also need some training. Some stuff they learn on their own, like not giving us chocolate, grapes or raisins because they're bad for us (actually Mommy says onions and garlic might be bad for me so she makes a point of shooing me away from the kitchen if she's cooking with them) but when it comes to handing over the stuff that we like -other than giving us dinner, which they kind of do on their own too- I have a few tips for my fellow Doodles to get…

Lyme Vaccine - Yes or No?

Hi Doodle fans!  The time is coming when we'll be picking up our new pup....actually we'll be bringing her home July 9th.  How many of you have gotten your doods inoculated for Lyme disease?  I'm hearing different views from different Vets.  Some say it can actually make them more susceptible to lyme; and some say it can't hurt.  Some say it works, and some vets say they just aren't sure.

My "phoebe" aka "Peeps" in my picture died of Lyme nephritis  last April.  The symptoms were so… Continue

Hockey, summer and dental care

Hi my fellow Doodle friends and your Humans,


Well, finally Mommy had time to sit down and type for me after all that hockey thing was over. Sadly, our Vancouver good team didn't win the cup full of treats and many humans were very disappointed and some humans were really bad, bad to our city of Vancouver. Hope you didn't see it because Mommy watched it all on TV and she was very upset and she cried so I had to lick her tears, which is OK because I love her and it's my job to…

Looking for an F1 Goldendoodle

I am looking for an F1B or F2B goldendoodle for our family.  I live in Newport Beach, CA. and would love to find a breeder in this State so that we can take my 6 year old daughter to pick out her puppy.  The ideal size would be between 25-40lbs.  If you know of any qualified breeders that you can refer to me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Stinky Face :{

The horrible summer Stinky Face has hit Nug again this summer and it is bad.

I have battled this problem with him for 3 years.

I think I finally found the cure WooHoo.

I lifted up the hair on the side of his face, his moustache, to look and see if something was growing in there.

What I found was lots of hair that has grown very long and curled up into the upper part of his lip The smell was horrendous.

My solution, because you all know how much I hate that…

Attention All Male Doodle Owners

This is not a joke and I am really serious.    Do your male Doodles lift their rear leg when they go to the bathroom? (tinkle or what ever you want to call it.)  You have heard me mention that we owned our other dog, Fletch for 13 years.  God I still miss him so much.  Anyway - when he was still a puppy I was looking at him out back and he lifted his leg for the first time.  I praised him and told him he was a big boy now.  My husband praised him also.  Pemon just turned 15 months and he…

Tinkling when excited

Bailey has now tinkled 3 times (that I know of)  when he's gotten excited about someone greeting him.  We have been firm about no jumping and I'm wondering if he is nervous because he wants to jump?  He also turns to the side when he is greeting?

Any advice?…

food and training treats..

including rawhide chews...  They also satisfy hunger without the protein and other nutriments a  puppy needs for strong bones..

Yes, I have like problems with food here.  Both dogs have cut down on food as the weather changed..  I decided to give them 'free choice' of high protein dry food whenever they want to eat..  I have two bowls with two full cups each..   If either bowl is empty around 4:30 I add another 2-3 measured cups...  I pick up the bowls about 8:30.  Dogs unlike people will eat only when they are hungry...  not to worry unless he begins to lose weight..

If you find he refuses to eat dry food;…

Vanity plates

Wow, there must me a boat load of goldendoodles in Arizona.  Every combination I thought of for personalized plates were taken. And believe me, some of mine were pretty creative.  Ended up with "2 DOODLS".  My license plate surround says Lucy & Ethel at the top and the bottom says I LOVE MY GOLDENDOODLES.  I know....I'm over the top.  Now I just need to put the little paw prints on my back window.  ha ha ha ha

Sending your girls away...

Sending your girls away... you have no need to feel neglectful, if indeed that is case.    Training them to be respectful of you is most necessary at whatever your height (I too am 5'2")  I've mentioned before that I ramp train all the dogs, large or small.  Most trainers ignore that step, but i've had emergencies where the ramp was a necessity.  These puppies will also learn to go down steps before me not behind me.  I believe that training is a safty issue for my wellbeing. But, if I may,…

I'm a happy camper...

I mentioned in the last few days that I train the command 'come' both verbal and a slient whistle (in the house) at the same time...   when they find me there is a treat and lots of praise...    welllllllll     this afternoon  I took them to the adjoining park, not a dog park, but one that has freezbe courts...   Point is I turned them both off lead for the 1st time...   Izzi spotting a player took off..........   she was half way across the field as I used the whistle...........   Grins and… Continue

The girls are off to boot camp

Today I take Lucy and Ethel Mae to boot camp.  While they are very smart and learned all the tricks within minutes, they absolutely refuse to heel or come when called.  Since having the girls, I have had 2 cortisone shots in each shoulder due to tendonitis.  They are so strong and it takes everything I have (at 5'2") to keep them at bay.  I have been looking into this for a while, and have gotten a lot of positive responses, but have also gotten my share of "I would never send my dog away." …

Visit to Assisted Living Facility today

Thanks for the comments, guys. 

It was amazing this a.m. at the assisted living facility...Miss Murphy was truly a STAR.  Just about everyone loved her...and she loved them.  We had a hard time leaving.  Activity director had just returned to work this week after being out for awhile due to death in her family so couldn't set up much of a regular schedule yet, but we are going back this Sunday afternoon.  Can't believe weekends are slowest times there...would have thought just the…

Made first appointment - Miss Murphy will visit folks at assisted living facility

Scheduled an appointment for tomorrow morning for Miss Murphy's first visit to an assisted living residence .  I really think the mental stimulation of going somewhere different and making new friends will be good for her...people this time...instead of dogs (she sees plenty of them when we pick-up our granddog, Blossom, on Saturdays and go to play group and, of course, on walks, etc.).  We'll see how this goes before I phone another place (an adult day care center), whose name was given to…
