"I agree that many doodles don’t need room to run. We sold our house in Los Angeles and moved into a condo with no yard for a few years. Cocoa lived there with no problem whatsoever. We walked her a couple of times a day and she…"
"Another positive is Cocoa’s temperament. Once she outgrew her puppyhood and teenage years she became the sweetest most mellow dog ever. She loves dogs, cats, men, women and children. A baby could pull a bone from her mouth (not recommended,…"

"I had a neighbor who had this problem. She consulted a trainer and this is what the trainer recommended: When she walked her dog she always carried lots of treats and made her dog sit facing away and turn his attention toward her when she…"
