My doodle is about 2 and a half months now. I've taught him some basic commands, his name, sit, look, down, and we're working on stay. Still another couple more weeks before his puppy classes start.
I've really wanted to teach him how to play ball, tried a few times, but he just would watch the ball roll away.
Yesterday morning something clicked. We were out on the deck and suddenly he started chasing after the ball and then bringing it back to me to throw. I never taught him that, is it intuitive with the retriever mix?
And today I wasn't able to park where I usually do for work, I had to park on the street. He walked (with his halter & leash) like he walked all the time on sidewalks! Just trotting along, going straight for my office.
He's such a smart boy, amazing me everyday. I picked the right breed.
I'd love to hear stories about other peoples doodles!
