Gizmo had his first grooming session yesterday. I was so nervous and apprehensive about it. I just wanted it to be a good experience for him. I didn't want him to be scared of the blow dryer, razor, being caged in a room with other dogs, and being handled by "strangers".
Apparently, he had none of my fears! We arrived and was greeted by a big boxer mix (?) that was behind a gate in the grooming room. He was very friendly and Gizmo wanted to play ... BAD! The groomer…Continue
Gizmo is growing up .... literally! He is so tall that he was able to put his paws up on his doggie gate and escape! We thought the grandkids let him out, but it happened twice when they were not here. So, off to the pet store - AGAIN! We got a tall one this time. He can also put his cute little puppy face on the snack tray and end table.
He took his first all-the-way-around-the-block walk yesterday and then again today - without the training collar. He's doing very…Continue

So yesterday we took 8 month old "Buddy" to the "city" for the first time. Saugatuck, MI. is an artist-tourist-lakeshore, seasonal kind of place. We avoid it in the Summer because there seem to be too many Chicago-Detroit tourists who don't know how to drive, park, or be considerate of others. A lot of T-shirts and fudge are sold each day and many of these people walk dogs that are not very well trained - like their masters. …Continue

I look forward to getting to know everyone and learning more info on this lovely cross breed.

Tanner joined our family one week ago and already has brought so much joy into our lives! He is so cute I want to snuggle with him all the time but as far as puppies go, that only lasts a short while since he has other things he thinks he needs to explore.
We have owned Golden Retrievers in the past and still have Kaylee our red golden who is…Continue
Well, so it's been a few days since I had the chance to tell you about our beautiful vacation in the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada, which is where Daddy and I were born and where Mommy chose to live a few years back.
After that, a whirlwind of events happened, amongst them the fact that Mommy got so worried about a bump on my head that she stayed home from work and took me to the Vet's office. First, Mommy thought that a tick puppy had bit me and gotten inside my skin…Continue
How often should a puppy be bathed? I gave Gizmo a bath the day after we brought him home last week. He is 10 weeks old. He goes outside and sits in the grass and comes in with very wet/dirty paws and chin. Then he smells like a puppy after being outside. We will have him groomed at some point. Which brings up another question ... how old should he be before taking him to a groomer? I don't want to traumatize him if he's too young.
Thanks for your help.
I adopted a 18 month old goldendoodle from an ad online. He is beautiful and sweet BUT he has bad seperation anxiety and he easily gets out of control. He does not recognise me as alpha. I have had dogs, goldens and poodles all my life and have never had one that is this out of control. Can anyone help?
We have had our puppy for one week now. He is 10 weeks old. Gizmo was quite shy at first, but had adjusted very well. He found his voice a day or so ago. Now he "argues" with me when I scold him and barks at his toys when they just lay there.
Gizmo has made great progress in just one week. His accomplishments: sit on command, knows to go to door to potty - no sounds, just goes to the door, knows command "go in the house" when we are done outside, has learned to climb…Continue

Earlier this evening, as I was getting ready to leave the house WITH the dogs, instead of running to the car like they always do, they fired up the street like they were chasing something,I hopped into my Jeep to find them, and I found them in about 5 or 6 minutes,but they covered a LOT of ground in that time frame. They were both very winded,and jumped right into the Jeep without incident. I now have two Goldendoodles laying here,BOTH of them with torn pads on their front feet. Seamus wore…Continue
