A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

Hi all,

I can't believe how long it has been since I have been on this community.  Hudson will be 2 in July.  He is such a great dog and has a great disposition.  He loves playing out doors and especially loves the snow!

Last year he jumped in the pool to get his ball (something he loved when the winter cover was on) well with no cover he fell in the water.  That was it for swimming in the pool.  He wanted nothing to do with it.  We even put him on the steps, but nothing worked.

Now we are bringing him to the lake to fetch the ball and hopefully get him use to the water.

We will see in a couple of weeks.

Hudson topped off at about 45 pounds  Not bad.  Not that big and not that small.

Now to start reading some blogs!

Take care,

Anita and Hudson!

It is so interesting that these guys who are descended from water retrievers are not much for swimming.  Trixie likes to wade in and lie down to cool off, but she's not much of a swimmer!

We are hoping to get Cooper used to the lake but he's not much for fetch - he'd rather jump for the ball and I think he'd be unhappy landing in the water too, if he wasn't expecting it...We shall see. I do have some questions about them swimming in lakes. How do you treat their ears - I'm concerned about ear infections. Also, I suppose we have to bathe him every time he swims in the lake(IF we get him in the lake;-). Perhaps, he will just be a boat dog!!

What a shock for him! Or anyone!  It'll be interesting to see if he takes to the water now.  Picco has never been a water dog. He'll wade into it or lay down but not really get in!
