HELP!!! New Goldendoodle Mama~

Posted on October 21, 2013 at 12:39am 20 Comments

New to this site~ New Goldendoodle mama.  My Bella is now 5 months old; received her when she was 2 months old.  Having difficulty potty training.  Bella is very stubborn.  Is this common for the breed?  I don't know anything about Goldendoodles.  Everyday I say "this is going to be your last!"  I don't want to cave, but feeling very overwhelmed and frustrated.  What are some of your favorite things about this breed? What is most special?  Any personality traits that are truly remarkable to…

Hi Marny and Bella!  Trixie caught on to potty training pretty quickly - I think she was fairly reliable by 5 or 6 months old.  We mainly took her out every couple of hours whether she acted like she had to go or not, and even got up at regular intervals in the night to take her out.  We also used enzymatic cleaner (Nature's Miracle is one) to clean up any spots where she had "accidents", since they can still smell that they have gone on a given spot even when we can't smell anything.  It seems that if they can smell it, they think it's the "potty area" and will go there again.  Good luck with's a frustrating issue I know!!!  Ahhhhhhhhh...Doodles!  It seems unanimous among those I know who have them that the HAPPY and goofy disposition is the very best thing about them!  Most are very sweet, smart and eager to please, but at the same time full of mischief!  It doesn't hurt anything that they are so darn CUTE!!  The down side, at least for me (and from what I've heard from others) is that they are pretty excitable for the first couple of years...they LOVE everybody, and are convinced that everybody MUST love them!  Trixie is WILD at the front door when guests come, for instance.  It's an ongoing training process I think.  I can't even imagine what kind of chaos we'll have on Halloween!!
