"I would also recommend starting whatever routine you plan to have right away rather than staying home for a week with the puppy. It will help it to get on schedule and time in the crate while you are gone will help with crate/potty training"

"I'm no expert but I think if you are able to give the dog your time when you get home from work then you are fine with what you described. I work 7-4 and stop at home during lunch to take my dog for a walk. When I get home I spend about 2 hours…"

"I agree with Karen. Could very well be anal glands. Check with the vet. We had a dog long ago that ended up having deformed anal glands. I am well acquainted with scooting. Yikes. Another clue is a very bad odor in the bum area or generally all over…"

"Sounds like she could have an impacted anal gland. I'm not familiar with the chews, but if the scooting continues, she needs to see the vet."

Scooting

I noticed my 16 month goldendoodle scooting for the first time on Thanksgiving. I did not notice her scoot again until Monday. Since then I have noticed her scooting once or twice a day (no scooting noticed on Wednesday though). She only does it for a short period of time. Everything otherwise is normal. She is eating, drinking, playing, and pooping normally. Stools are firm and could not see any visible worms. Any thoughts on what it could be? Is it most likely her anal glands causing her to…See More

"Try the feeding protocol I mentioned above. I'm having a similar issue with my 8 mo old puppy. If he were full grown, I wouldn;t be so concerned, but at this age, he needs to eat. Most days, I hand feed him. My guy prefers the higher…"

"We started on Fromm Puppy Gold. At 10 months I switched her to Salmon a la Veg. Then I thought she might be more into a grain free formula bc of the higher protein content so we tried Beef Frittata. Her last bag was a small one of Duck and Sweet…"

"There are lots of foods out there that she will want to eat when you offer them to her; but she probably won't want to eat them a few days later, lol. Which Fromm formula are you feeding? What kind of toppers are you using? What else is…"

Switching Foods

My 14 mo. mini goldendoodle has been eating Fromm since I switched her at 3 months from the breeders food. She has never been an excited or quick eater. Usually I know she is unlikely to eat in the morning or when I stop at home during lunch so she gets one meal at night which she will eventually eat. To be honest I do add in toppers to make her more interested.Lately, I've been thinking about moving her off of the Fromm (I've tried a couple of different Fromm flavors by now) and over to…See More

"I think the most common one people use is the PetSafe Easy Walk harness: https://www.petsafe.net/easywalk You can get it at most pet stores and chewy.com (cheaper on chewy than in store) I use it with my doodle and it has worked great. "

"If after 2 weeks, your puppy's stool is well formed and regularly, and there are no digestive issues, you can switch to a better quality food. You will want to stay with a grain-free food, and you should try to choose one with the same proteins…"

Lisa Raskind replied to Kim P.'s discussion Wet Dog Food and Kibble in the group The Food Group
"Thank you, Karen for the help.  The pup is on TOTW at the breeders, so I will definitely want to switch after the first two weeks or so.  Given that doodles seem to be prone to digestive issues, what would you suggest to switch to?  I…"

"Here's the thing; ideally, the healthiest diets are not 100% dry processed foods. The best possible thing would be a 100% fresh food diet, i.e. home made. But very few people are going to prepare all of their dogs' food from scratch.…"
