The groomers did crazy haircut on Leo.....

He went in for his puppy trim and well he came out with shaved under his eyes and some crazy hair on top of his head. She kept asking me if I wanted a poodle cut. I said no and then she asked if I wanted a complete shave everywhere. Nope! I said he is a doodle and want a doodle trim around face paws.... I know it will grow back but I can't believe how much they change with a different cut. He is so young that we did it at the vet groomers. When he is finished with shots....I am going to a… Continue

Leo update!

Leo is almost 12 weeks old. We have been busy working on house training,basic commands and crate training. He is getting the hang of using the bell for going outside to potty. Some days are better than others. But hanging in there. He has gone to puppy socialization class and puppy kindergarten. Loves treats so he is very motivated to sit and other basic things. His crate is working out great now. He stays overnight without whining and can go in for my times to leave short hours during day.… Continue

Sleeping during day 8 weeks old


just wanted to make sure I was on the right schedule for Leo. I know each pup is different and needs sleep at 8 weeks.  A family member (aunt) has Leo's sister Roxy. She only sleeps for about 20 min. then plays.  Leo plays and then sleeps for over an hour.  So breakfast, outside time, playing 7am-10am.  10-11:30 sleep in playpen.  Then he will up lunch, outside time, sleep for another hour to 2 hours.  I have been keeping him up evening time for playing, so he goes to bed later.…

Leo is here! 8 weeks old and so cute!

Night one with Leo was so far so good.  He was tired from all the excitement of bringing him home.  He is doing well... sleep, play, potty. :)

What age was your 1st puppy class?

The breeder says after 4 months, a trainer says 10 weeks or after second parvo.  Vet says after all rounds of certain shots so back to the 4 months age.  I had a class to go to on July 25th so almost 12 weeks old.  Do I wait for another month almost Sept. or go for July 25th 7 sessions.  Breeder says in home for 9 weeks to 4/5 months.  Thanks!

Is this cause for concern: 3 puppies from the litter I am getting died

I thought I would ask?  The breeder let us know that 3 puppies did not make it.  There were 10 in the litter and they are waiting to see how the others do over time.   I don't know much about "why" she did say something about mother and milk, puppies not taking milk? Not sure if that is correct.  I guess I will ask more questions next time I talk with her.

What do you wish someone would have told you about a new Puppy?

what advice would you give to a new puppy owner. What is the one thing that you wish you knew or would be helpful those 1st few months or year. I have read books and websites but any words of wisdom.  :)

Brand of Puppy food/breeder food?


The breeder will have the puppies on Life’s Abundance. I believe this is something I order online.  Are any of your doodles on this or stay on this type of food.  And if you made a switch what type of dog food do you use and when was the gradual switch made.

Litter Box vs house training 8 weeks old


We are excited to have a goldendoodle puppy in July.  The puppies were born last week.   We received a packet for puppy/dog care and it says to get litter and use it for a several weeks.  We will use a trainer that we will be a service/therapy dog trainer.  She said not to start with litter at all but to begin house training the day he/she comes home. I guess this is for nighttime? Litter at night so they can go.  Trainer says outside even at night so training is easier on grass…
