Flompy feet!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Amy & Bernie Apr 2, 2011. 25 Replies

My DH has a term he uses to refer to Bernie's fluffy long legs, he calls them "flompy feet". He wouldn't be thrilled that I'm sharing this...haha.Anyhow, this is a totally pointless discussion other…Continue

Familiar with other Doodle mixes?

Hi all! I'm just curious if anyone has spent any time around Doodle mixes that aren't as popular on this site? I know there's plenty of great info here for Lab, Golden and Aussiedoodles, but we're…Continue

Does your Dood wear boots?

Hi all, we're thinking of getting some boots for Bernie and I'd like some feedback from anyone who's tried them or uses them. Recommendations, issues, tips, etc. We hike A LOT and next summer he'll…Continue

Canine cancer and comparative oncology research

Hi all! I'm not sure where I'm allowed to post info like this? I'm sure someone will tell me if this is inappropriate - just know it was done with good intentions! My husband, Bernie and I are…Continue

Profile Information

About Me:
New to Labradoodles!
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Our 1 year old Labradoodle is Bernie. He's been so much fun, we're definitely Doodle advocates!
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I've always had allergies and my husband grew up with a chocolate Lab. Labradoodles seemed to make the most sense.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Dog park, dog park, dog park! Hikes and walks, lots of playing. I work from home so my productivity is directly related to his activity level. He's also awesome in the car, so he goes everywhere with us, we're constantly on the look out for "dog friendly" accommodations, restaurants and coffee shops along the West Coast.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
We do! He's pretty calm with the clippers and he's just curly enough, you can't really tell when I mess up!
Favorite Doodle Products?
Nothing Doodle specific, we love Wellness dog food and Yummy Chummies treats from Alaska.

Butt out, okay?!

Posted on May 21, 2011 at 3:56pm 14 Comments

I have to vent a little about a woman I ran into at a local specialty pet store. I love the store, they carry really great stuff and have a lovely dog treat "salad bar" where you can mix and match and pay by the lb. - and all the ingredients and nutritional information is available. Such a great deal!

Anyhow, a woman came in with her dog and wanted them to say hi, totally fine. We made them both sit and behave before allowing a sniff. There was sniffing, there was a little playing, it…


Work from home Doodle guilt?

Posted on May 17, 2011 at 10:27am 17 Comments

For those of you who work from home, do you get Doodle guilt? I know puppies and dogs sleep a lot, that's normal, but as the sun starts to become a more regular occurrence I'm feeling more and more guilty watching Bern mope around the house because I can't play with him every second!

It doesn't help that I just took on a new client and am juggling a new schedule.

Do you all go through this? I realize there's not much I can do - if I worked out of the house he'd be here alone…


Week 5: Obedience class review

Posted on May 3, 2011 at 10:12pm 4 Comments

Much better this week. Audible sigh of relief.

Bernie held his sit-stays and his down-stays in class. For 3 minutes each! This was a major deal. As a number of Doodle owners know, they can be a very social breed.

It's been tough for Bernie to adjust to being in a confined space with other dogs and having ZERO play time, and even more difficult, sniffing or even paying attention to other dogs is discouraged. Although I…


Week 4: Obedience class review

Posted on May 3, 2011 at 9:59am 5 Comments

I've been reminded that I forgot to post after last week's session! Let me be honest, it may have been select amnesia.

We were warned that at some point during the 10 weeks the dogs will likely have a spell of forgetfulness, where they act like they've learned nothing. Well Bernie, the ever-consistent over-achiever, started last week.

In class his sit-stays and down-stays were wretched! He'd stay for about 5 seconds before attempting to come to me. Our instructor agreed, based…

Hi Amy, I had really enjoyed you postings on your training program.  I noticed there haven't been any posts in a while.  Are you still involved in this training program, and how's it going?
