Dog food for 1 yr old Mini Goldendoodle

I have a 1 yr old mini goldendoodle. I have been feeding her Life’s Abundance Life Stages since we brought her home. Recently we did some lab work on her and her ph level was elevated. Our vet thought it was from her food. It wasn’t sure high and he wasn’t overly concerned but I want to avoid the issue before it becomes a problem. So I have been researching new food and am completely overwhelmed. Price does not matter and from the new heart issues with grain free...scared to try that too. I…

Follow your instincts

I'd been feeding my dogs Earthborn Holistics grain free fish formula for years.  About a year ago, they started having loose stools with the new bag of food.  I never occurred to me that the manufacturer had changed the formula as drastically as they did.  It wasn't until late July of this year that I looked at the ingredients list (online), and realized that they had made drastic changes to the formula.  I believe when I started my dogs on that food, it listed "fish meal", fish, potato, etc…

My poor Bella!

On Friday she had her second grooming.  I handed the groomer a written detail of what I wanted done and stood there while she read it.  When I picked her up I wanted to cry.  She was cut down everywhere but her ears and part of her tail to 1/4 of an inch.  My paper said " Please do not cut her ears, beard, mustache or from the base of her tail down.  The groomer said I stood there after she read it and told her to cut her all over to an inch.  She also has big bare spots behind her ears and…

Beau needs your help!

Beau is a 5 month old goldendoodle we adopted knowing that he had a permanent head tilt, which the breeder believed the dog mom stepped on him and caused the head tilt. After many vet visits and being put on prednisone, the head tilt has decreased in severity. Even though his head tilt is getting better, his neurologist still think its critical that he gets a brain MRI to determine if it is indeed from trauma or if it is a congenital disorder. We all know how expensive the vet is, especially…

We're back!

Hello Doodle friends. Eli and I are back. We've been really busy but we missed you! This is my granddaughter, Addie. She spent a few days with us last week and had a great time with Eli. Sweet pair. Addie just turned 4. Time flies.

Gentle leader

I finally listened to hubby and put a gentle leader on Bella.  Wow!  What a difference walking is now.  She walks beside me, no pulling and no stopping.  I am 7th heaven and can now enjoy our walks and take more then one a day.  I would tell everyone to start their puppy on a gentle leader because the difference in walking Bella is amazing.

Stinky doodle

Help!!! I just brought my puppy home yesterday she has a terrible odor. It’s so bad that it gags me when I pick her up. I took her to the vet and she’s healthy but he noticed her smell and told me to bathe her. I did and that didn’t work. Anyone else had this issue with their goldendoodle??

Breeder Question

Hi! I was wondering if anyone purchased an F1B goldendoodle from Brewers Goldendoodles in Cincinnati, Ohio? Specifically, Melody and Phoenix’s litter in the spring of 2014 would be great. I also have a pup from that litter and I was looking to connect with families of his siblings. Thanks!

Breeder question?

I saw a really cute mini golden doodle the other day and asked the lady where she got it. She said she got it from a breeder in Scotia Nebraska. Does anyone have any contact information for Christy Harmsmeyer? She is the only person I could find on google in Scotia. I’m curious to know if she is still breeding? Any information anyone has would be most helpful. My boyfriend and I are looking to get our first mini doodle! We live in Iowa but are willing to travel within a reasonable distance:)

Looking for my first Goldendoodle

Hey Everyone! 

I am pretty new to the goldendoodle community and am looking for some help and guidance. I’ve been looking to get a dog for a while now and had the chance to watch my friend’s goldendoodle this past weekend and fell in love with him. I was looking at getting one about 6 months to 3 years old but have no idea where to look. I also thought about getting a puppy but my landlord won't allow it. He wants the dog to be…

Reason for Go Fund Me Page for Goldendoodle

Sorry....I'm doing this on my phone and don't know how to edit. So this goes with the other post.

Curly had to have surgery to remove a tumor the size of a grapefruit from his lungs. The surgeon said since he didn’t have any other issues that it would be ok to do. So we proceeded and they removed it and everything seemed to be going well last week. We had to take him back to the hospital Sunday for breathing issues and he had air trapped in his chest cavity so they tapped him.… Continue

Go Fund Me Page for Goldendoodle

Not my dog. A friend asked if I would pass this on. If its not allowed, please let me know and I will remove it.

This is the link for it - it can be copied into a post. I have been posting updates there. We raised $1600 so far but that had to go to his hospital trip Sunday ($900) night and the vet bill yesterday. Csaba said he ate some today a bit and isn’t throwing up today so that’s good.… Continue

New puppy

Our new baby will be coming home next week. Any suggestions or helpful tips we should follow right away? We do plan on crate training and having him sleep in his crate, in our room. Any certain products, toys, must have gadgets?

Meet Herschel!

My name is Herschel! My humans chose my name because they are die hard Georgia fans and loved Herschel Walker. I am an F1b standard Golden doodle. 

I am scared of the broom, vacuums. I love swimming and running with my momma. I live in Naples and would love to meet some other Golden doodles near me!
