What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
We have a standard cream colored F1B goldendoodle. His name is Brody. He is 10 months old and weighs 60 lbs. He loves going obedience class and to the dog park. Our goal is to have him Canine Good CItizen Certified to hopefully go on to therapy training so that he can be a therapy dog at a hospital like walter reed for wounded warriors.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We loved how cute they were and the fact that they are little to no shed. I love how intelligent and easy to train they are.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
We love to take him to the dog park and on hikes. I can't wait to start going on runs with him. He loves to run.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
His hasn't had his first grooming yet, but if anyone has any suggestions on good doodle groomers please share!!
Hi Amber, Sarah & Brody ~ Brody is a very handsome boy. I think it is so great you are thinking about therapy training. When you get a chance be sure to check out the groups section on the main page and join as many as you like. There is a therapy group and over 300 hundred other groups. Welcome to Doodle Kisses.
Welcome to Doodlekisses Amber and Sarah.Always great to welcome another local member. Have fun meeting everyone and exploring a great site. I have a great groomer, but not sure you would want to drive 50 plus miles to take Brody to her.
