We have a new pup and she is 9 weeks old and we want to begin to ramp up her socialization. She is going to puppy kindergarten next week which I know will help but we'd like to do more. When we got…Continue
"I hear ya! I barely have time to pet my dogs... let alone train them...
I spend as much of my free time as I can with my doodles... but teaching is so... very... demanding.
I think that guilt feelings is normal, but I guess just…"
"I recently change Manny to TOTW and he loves it! He was getting bored with his last food so the timing couldn't be better. I switched him because our new puppy was fed TOTW by her breeder and I wanted the dogs on the same food. I feed him the…"
"Laura I can absolutely relate! Manny see's it as his mission to destroy toys. I think he feels inadequate as a dog if he doesn't destroy a toy ;-) Here are the toys that he has not destroyed. It could be because they are rubber…"
"Great question Lindsey and would love to hear some suggestions. We brought home our 2d doodle last month and although Manny (the older one) doesn't show teeth he gives a low level growl when Izzy approaches when he has a toy. Now luckily little…"
"Thanks Laura! The dogs are doing wonderfully well together! Manny gets a little over excited sometimes in his play with Izzy but he is very easy with her. They already love each other. When Izzy is in her crate Manny will lay down in front of…"

Charlie says "thanks" :) he's a labradoodle. he has a really interesting coat. he started out very dark brown, then it started to turn a big more red/orange, and now it is getting lighter, like the color of a latte. it hasn't quite reached his face yet - seems to have started with his tail. :)
That was from Vancouver BC. I have wanted to move to the Okanagan Valley for a lot of years. It came to a time when we felt we could get out of any commitments easily and we were both ready for a new adventure, so here we are. I wanted to raise dogs so I made that dream come true.

Ha ha....your Doodle looks like an all-black version of Hogan! I wonder he'd do if he saw him face to face. We ran into a much larger Doodle yesterday with coloring very similar to Hogan.

'Natch today he's now challenging mirrors all over again!
