Any tips for a building confidence in my shy girl?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Joanne ~ Spud* Sep 24, 2010. 26 Replies

Some history - Veruca, our older F1b, the breeder recommended because she's more submissive naturally. I'm not a very experienced trainer so she suggested a dog that showed signs of being less…Continue

Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a married, stay at home Mom with 3 young kids, number four on the way, and the proud owner of two gorgeous Goldendoodles. Our kids are 6 years old, 3.5 years old, 20 months old, and number four is due Nov 4th. I love photography, playing around on the internet, finding good deals and researching things. I'm the person people in my family ask for help when they are looking to buy a major electronic - help finding a deal and understanding which brands to get, what are desired features.. because I enjoy researching and like getting great "bang for your buck." I finished my bachelors when I was 30, partly while working and then the tail end when I was home. I am still trying to decide what to do now and what I want to be when I grow up ;)
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Veruca (Veruca Salt) is an F1b mini Goldendoodle with amazingly curly, shiny black hair, Violet (Violet Beauregarde) is an F1 Goldendoodle with straighter, honey colored fluffy fur. Veruca is one year old and weighs about 30lbs. Violet is just a puppy born 6/15/2010, we're expecting her to be about 45lbs. We shall see!
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I have previously been a Bichon owner, I never thought I would find a breed I loved more then the Bichon. When my two Bichons passed away, my life had changed a lot. I was a Mom, married and with a big family. I realized I needed a dog that was more of a family dog, but I still wanted that intelligence I loved about the Bichon. I took a few "What kind of dog suits your personality" type tests and that was the first I had ever heard of a Goldendoodle. The more I read about them, the more and more it seemed like this was the dog I didn't know I was looking for. After we got Veruca, I haven't looked back since. I would own as many as my husband could stand. She's so eager to please, intelligent and easy going. Great with the kids, friendly with strangers - the perfect family dog.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
I enjoy the little things - the daily love and cuddling. This summer before we got Violet we took Veruca on vacation with us, and seeing her on a boat, having fun in the sun was fantastic. We will definitely be looking for more family vacations that include our furry members as well. We had a lot more fun with Vee there.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major, Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I've tried two different groomers, neither I would return to. :(
Favorite Doodle Products?
Piddle Bells (I love bell potty training - LOVE it)

Spreading the word for a friend.. and venting..

Hello Ladies,


2011 has been keeping us busy -- new baby Nov 2010, someone hacked my paypal causing a lot of frustration and confusion, two back surgeries for me and a kidney infection, my best friend of 20 years lost her Dad to cancer at the young age of 57, my husbands Mom has been diagnosed with MS... *takes a deep breath*  Yea, it's been a busy time for us, 4 kids and our 2 dogs.   My puppies are desperately needing a good grooming - we had 2 weeks of snow and mud…


Introducing - Nicholas

Well, it was a bumpy road at the end, this little boy was sideways (not head down, or even a butt down) until 39 weeks and 5 days. FINALLY he turned and I was induced before he turned back sideways. There was marconium present when they broke my water, so the day had its ups and down - but in the end we were holding a healthy baby boy. He was a little jaundiced - we've been doing a light treatment for that, but other then that life is…

I can imagine you have NO time at all. Evie does have a lot of hair.  Her mom is half Italian and half Thai.  Both groups have lots of hair. Evie has her dad's  light skin, blue eyes and lots of red/gold in that mass of dark hair. I think she isn't going to lose it since she is 3 1/2 months and it just keeps growing.  The site must be doing something because I can't see any pictures on your page at all.  I will have to check back for updates.

How are you doing? My DIL's little girl is one day older than Nicholas. She got a 4 hour sleep from her just yesterday, however it occurred from 6pm to 10pm.

Congrats on the newborn!  What is his name...what were the stats?

Thanks Heather! AND GO TX!!!! My parents live in Kerrville, we used to get down there 3-4 times a year until the doods came along... Now my dream is to doodletrain them down there because I can't stand the thought of leaving them! So Rosey is an F1B her dad was a red poodle and she completely took his coloring. Bandit is an ALD,and yes he could be in a shampoo commerical. He has hair to die for, soft, silky wavy, never tangles, I am sooo jealous! Of course still a puppy so time will tell, Your pups are sooo cute too, and how lucky they are to be in a houseful of kids! I was tellin' my boss the other day I needed to be a stay at home doodle mom!! LOL!

I expect that Hudson will be much like Veruca; the puppy coat change will be a challenging time! Maybe this head-start hair cut will help though! I love Violets coloring! Hudson has 'caramel' coloring on his face and some on his back, and I hope it stays also, the breeder said it could also fade, and he could be an all white dog! We won't care either :) It was actually really interesting to see the parti litter that he came from! His dad is brown and white, and his mom is red and white, and there were black & white, red & white, brown & white, caramel & white, and an all white puppy! Its kinda of fun wondering what they will eventually look like! I am also so enjoying adding a dog to our home, we could never have one before (apartments and condos) and when we bought our first place, our next move was to put a deposit on our puppy! My oldest son adores Hudson, and thinks he looks even CUTER with his short 'do' lol! He likes getting Hudson to 'high five' and things like that. My youngest on the other hand, has an ongoing battle with the puppy... Hudson loves to steal his socks and this makes him cry, and my son likes to claim the dogs things as his own. lol We are working it out and it is already getting so much better. Hudson doesn't have access to the hallway with the kids' toy room and bedroom so they get away when its too much for them. Its all around great though having him around, I grew up with labs (so did hubby) so we always wanted a dog around the kids growing up.
