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 exercise they took the better for their bones as it built up muscle around the bones and helped to protect the bones. My Vet is very knowlegeable and I trust him completely. Other Vets might have other views - I dont know. I certainly will try not to let her jump too much as I read on the blog about another G.D. that suffered a bad injury from jumping.
While I will trust completely what my Vet said - each individual should check with their own vet for their views.
Millie cannot go out into the "Big World" until she is 12 weeks old - cannot wait to take her nice walkies. She has been so easy (so far) to train - she sits and gives a paw - next will be lead training in the garden. She sleeps in a crate at night (in our bedroom) and now does not cry to get out to the toilet during the night. She has been awake and ready for a "carry on" at 5.00 a.m. every morning since I brought her home - this morning she woke at 6.00 a.m. - yipeeeeee a long lie for me!!!!!!!
Hope I have not bored anyone with this.
