Wow, only a year old and 60#'s...no, Skadi only weighed about 52#'s in December of last year...however, she ended up having surgery in January this year on her stifle and that laid her up for 6 months where she could not be over active. So that may be why she packed on some more pounds. Your doodle is also very very beautiful. I feel so lucky to have her, she is so sweet...to me anyway...not so much to some of her doggie friends.
Skadi weighs 60#. I think she needs to knock off a couple pounds. We'll see...she goes to the vet this week for her check-up. We inherited Skadi from our grown children that got her as a puppy and were just not ready to raise a puppy...lucky lucky me. She is just a delight.
Hi Debbie...I had this same trouble with Skadi who is 3 years old now and still barks when the doorbell rings on the TV. HA. I had a trainer come give me help, by having her go to a mat when the doorbell rings. You maybe able to find some video's online that address this. Reinforcement is the key. Skadi doesn't jump up on folks, but does bark. When I come home, I do not greet her right away until she settles down...no eye contact, no words, no touching until she sits. This helps her to be less excited. BTW, Trixie's color is absolutely gorgeous!
Seriously Debbie I have hundreds of pics of Wiser. No Wiser isd not our guardian dog. We get that puppy around next June or July. We are very excited. We met with our breeder yesterday (Goldendoodles of Niagara) is her websiteshe is truely a remarkable Lady. People come from all over for her doodles. I'm very lucky that I live so close to Diane so its perfect for my family to be guardians. Our next pup will be a bit more poodle than Golden. We will take whatever Maya and Kodak (Wisers dad) give usim told there should be a nice Chocolate in the little. Where are you from Deb. We are close to Niagara Falls.
