Grooming Woes

Started this discussion. Last reply by DonMarie and Picco on Monday. 46 Replies

I know I overshare. And I know this is highly insignificant in the big picture. And I know it's just hair and it will grow. But I'm soooo bummed. Katie and Maggie's groomer moved away. And when I say…Continue

Mean dogs at training class. Opinions, please!

Sorry, this got long. I really did try to make it concise. This is what concise looks like to me. :DI took Maggie to agility class today. She did so well! But I would like to chat a little about the…Continue

Maggie starts Novice obedience!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Stacy Sep 9. 57 Replies

So, Maggie and I didn't get the memo that our Novice obedience class was going to be full of dogs who know what they're doing and that they're totally going to show us up! I think we need remedial…Continue

Does your doodle eat lying down?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Arlene Jul 28. 29 Replies

I always have the silliest questions. Maggie is the first dog I've ever had who lays on the floor while she eats her dinner. I assume it doesn't make a difference. I just think it's funny. I do have…Continue

Nancy and Georgia Brown replied to Stacy's discussion Grooming Woes

Profile Information

What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Katie is my first doodle. She's a miniature f1b goldendoodle. She's a total sweetheart. I also have a 14 year old papillon named Olivia. And the latest addition is Ava. She's Katie's mom. A standard f1 goldendoodle. And the biggest love.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder, Rehome
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I love the way they look. And I love that beyond grooming they aren't physically altered in any way.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
The dog park, but not just any dog park. Our favorite is a 53 acre off leash area with hiking trails and lake access. We love to go hike and then Katie likes to swim.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major, Nope!

The Evolution of Maggie

Posted on April 17, 2018 at 10:26am 7 Comments

Maggie’s a different dog than any I’ve known before. It’s been 9 weeks that she’s been here, and we coexist peacefully. She’s doing perfectly on her potty training when I’m home. Going to work is still a major work in progress, and I haven’t found the perfect solution, but we’re working on it.

She’s still not very affectionate. Everyone has an opinion, and I think that the truth lies somewhere within all the wisdom I’ve received. She went to see the groomer last week and she did…


the doodles scared a possom "to death"

Posted on November 28, 2016 at 5:42pm 15 Comments

I swear I do not live in the country! I live in a suburb very near the center of my town. It’s not a huge town, but it’s definitely not the country! And it’s far more developed than the subdivision I moved from a year ago – maybe that’s the problem. There was more room for the wildlife to be out in the woods. But I have seen more possums in the yard since I moved here than ever before – in fact I’m sure that I never got up close and personal with one until we moved here.  But the dogs and I…

Stacy, your Doodles are beautiful! I also have my puppy's mother. Daphne was my first Doodle and a year later, Lucy was retired from breeding and needed a forever home. We just love her to pieces!

Hi!  I saw your comment on buying bras in bulk!  lol

I am no expert, but look at how you react to the 'thief' when you find her.  What worked for us, was correcting our pup as soon as possible, with a 'NO' and putting an appropriate toy in his mouth.  We worked on the command 'drop it' as soon as possible too.  They are curious little pups, and they love a good game of chase.  It could be she just enjoys your attention when you find your bras.  We used to have a parrot, and we learned that negative attention is just as good as positive attention. 

it sounds like she might test you on EVERYTHING in the house. And as they grow, they find more interesting things, but most of all, just want your entire focus, and will do things just to get your attention!!  teaching independent appropriate playtime is a chore, but well worth it.  being consistent is the key to success!!  hope it gets better
