A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

Hello, I am new to the community and very anxious to pick up my new fur baby, Remi, next week. Wondering if those of you who have raised Goldendoodles have any advice on potty training, what toys are best for them, do's and don't, or anything I should know in advance with this breed. We raised Bichons for awhile, and have had yorkies, but this is my first Goldendoodle. Any advice would be very appreciated.

like any other puppy, open crate go out side, food go out side within 20 minutes.  playing 20 minutes go out again....  LOL    I use the command 'chores' to train.    always a small treat after she puddles... does not really take a long time until she understands.

ps: one dog at a time..  trained puppy will train another

My experience - get them one at a time, and wait and see if the first wants to be an only dog or not. And give yourself plenty of time to raise & train the 1st one.

The trouble with raising 2 at the same time (or nearly so, as I did with them being 14 months apart), is that it is hard to get the one-on-one time needed for each.  My younger dog learned my older dog's bad habits, and never really learned some important lessons because I couldn't get her attention if she was separated from the other.  I really couldn't train either one separately, because no matter what I did, the one that was with me would be more worried about what the other one was doing, than showing interest in what I was trying to do with her at the time.

Just my experience.

Yes! Very much so! Also, anyone have an opinion on if they do better if you have 2? They would be about 8 weeks apart in age. If so, am I better off to get 2 of the same sex or one of each? Thank you!

Are you counting the days?  :-)

I don't think any training would be different since you've had pups before.  Doodles need to be part of everything going on!  Most seem to latch onto one person and be their shadow.  Mine follows me everywhere around the house!   You should seek out a groomer that knows about doodles.  Their coats are not like poodles and can be very different from each other.  

And watch out because they will give you a look that will melt your heart and you'll surrender to whatever they want!
