"Hi there, mine is 6 1/2 months and I've noticed his behavior is changing a bit. He is more mouthy during playtime, and with his adult teeth, it can hurt (I can't imagine ignoring that). Since he was very little, if he started to nip, we…"

Vanilla Frozen Yogurt??

Hi there, I just thought I'd ask if anyone has heard of anything negative about giving a dog a little vanilla frozen yogurt. One of my family's favorite summer rituals this summer is to walk with Chewy to our neighborhood frozen yogurt spot. I get him a small amount of vanilla frozen yogurt and he devours it in seconds. He's a very healthy puppy, and I just want to make sure we're not harming him by giving him this occasional special treat.

"I cheated during this phase. I put him on the cement patio and let him play with a frisbee. Spud would paw and paw at the toy.  Really, he just wore down his nails enough.   "

"Play with his feet/toes a lot so he gets used to being touched on his feet. Some dogs are very sensitive on their feet. I don't know how big he is but I take Nimbus in my lap when I cut his nails. Good luck!"

How best to clip nails on a terrified puppy?

We've been waiting patiently since we got Chewy in June until he was old enough to start going to a groomer to have his nails clipped . The vet says he needs to wait 2-3 more weeks until he can go to the groomer. In the meantime, we''ve been trying to clip his nails/or use the Dremel, and he has always put up a huge fight. We've never gotten through it in one sitting--it's always such a struggle (and he's generally a mild tempered puppy). We've tried giving constant treats, does not work. The…See More

My amazon wish list seems a mile long, and I keep tweaking it based on feedback! So funny. I was pricing comparing items offered in the puppy pack from michelle vs amazon, too. :)

Aww, nice. Did you visit with your kids too? Did anyone have allergies? Now I am contemplating puppy health insurance -- there is so much to know about these pups! Michelle recommends trupanion but i am not sure yet to just go with that or others i have heard are good from friends. More money to spend, eh?

Cannot wait to hear from Michelle about Hazel's ultrasound, how many pups, if we know boys/girls, etc! I hope she lets us know soon!!

How exciting! And thank you so much for the feedback! I was sweating the fact that we would not be able to visit (we are in NJ) and am so glad to hear from you (and previous references) that she is a great breeder. I also love that she chooses the dogs for us based on bio vs. any first pick competition bologna! We also are so excited, especially my 12 yr old son, but it is good time to prepare everything. Guess we will meet on June 7ish but pls do keep in touch! :)

We are waiting for a pup from waltzing labradoodles and i noticed that your pup's mom's ultrasound is tomorrow, too! Are we waiting on the same litter, by coincidence?
