Fantastic idea, Pam  (leaving your dog to DRC).  These people are fantastic.  I am probably getting two more doodles as fosters this weekend.  They were surrendered from their home and have had no training at all.  I already have two doodles in my home but enough room outdoors (and a large laundry room) to do a short-term foster.  I'm glad you are thinking ahead for your beloved pet.

I agree with going with the breeders these ladies have suggested. Cliberdoodles is a great breeder and so is Apple Creek Doodles. Here is a little that has openings now. http://www.applecreekdoodles.com/cp-asher-pups.html If being young and not trained is an issue you can find a good boarding trainer in your area that can train the puppy for a few weeks. I know this is a hard thing since you have surgery soon. Or you can have someone stay with you can help.  I would take these puppies in a heartbeat but my life will not allow having another puppy at the moment!

Pam, I see that April at Cliberdoodles has a gorgeous English Cream golden doodle pup available --Yellow Boy --on her website.  Some of our favorite doodles here on DK are from Cliberdoodles.  Please take a look.  She is a highly reputable breeder, breeds for temperament and health and several of her dogs on DK are therapy dogs.  I would take that little guy in a heartbeat if I was looking.

Cliberdoodles very close to you in Michigan is likely the most highly regarded breeder on DK.  Good luck with your search.

Pam -- Where are you getting your Doodle from?  We got our little AnnaBelle in May of last year from CliberDoodles in Michigan.

Hi Pam! I sent you a private message I think a few days ago. Did you get it?

Hi Pam, Welcome to DK.  Great website with lots of information.  We got our first Doodle, (Labradoodle) in June of 2012 and he was 6 months old.  He is a joy!!  I am just sharing some info with you.  After Max lost his puppy coat, he became a matting mess. (Hopefully your pup will not!)  After multiple trips to multiple groomers, I have learned a few lessons.  Do not take him/her to a groomer that bathes and then puts them in a crate with a blower to dry them.  Max has to be hand brushed/blow dried or his coat kinks up and cannot get a brush/comb/clippers thru it!!  That was a hard lessoned learned as he got shaved down to nothing 3 times, which put me in tears. :-(   Brush him/her daily from the beginning.  Max hates being brushed, it takes two of us; my husband plays with him to distract while I brush him.

The second issue seems silly, but has to be dealt with.  Here goes.....Doodles are just too friendly when someone comes to the door.  Max just cannot help himself, everyone MUST be jumped on and licked to death.  Maybe not such a bad thing if you have a smaller doodle, but Max is the size of a standard poodle and weighs 65 pounds.  Just keep training him/her. From the very beginning, make them sit and wait until you give the command that they can go say hello politely to that person.  I see you are from Lansing, if you are ever up in the Whitehall area, please call and we can meet up.  I would love to meet your new puppy sometime this summer!  Rhonda

I promise it is worth all the research! And it is fun too, that does not hurt either. LOL

Welcome to DK, Pam and to the Michigan Doodle group!!  I live a couple hours north of Lansing, in Gladwin.  Congratulations on your coming doodle addition!  You may find it hard to believe now, but the time between now and April will go faster than you think :)  

The best book I've read on all things puppy is from Michigan trainer, Brenda Aloff

Here is info about the book directly from her website.  Even though my boys are past the puppy stages, I still pull it out when one of the boys gives me some trouble :)

PUPPY PROBLEMS? NO PROBLEM! A Survival Guide for Finding & Training Your New Dog.  Includes DVD

http://brendaaloff.com/index.html

This book goes beyond any of the other puppy books out there and brings you Brenda's 20 years of experience working with problem dogs as a professional pet behavior consultant. This gives Brenda a unique view of what owners should have done to prevent problems from occurring in the first place. She says, "Many of the sad situations that occur do not have to be. Education on the person's part combined with humane and effective technique can make dog ownership the joy you imagined it would be!" Training your dog should be a shared and fun experience that enhances the relationship you have with your dog. This book will lead you through each "problem" and in an easy to understand step-by-step program will show you how to make big differences in your dog's behavior.
This book comes with a DVD that shows you exactly how to carry out the protocols in this book. Take a look at the Table of Contents. It is filled with all of those common, but irritating issues that come up in daily life with a new puppy or dog and solutions for each one. The DVD is super and even children can watch the training steps and then be able to follow the steps to gain success with your family pet. (Of course, children will need parental supervision, as well.)

DK is an AMAZING place for all things Doodle.  Enjoy getting to know your way around!I look forward to seeing pictures of your doodle puppy!!
