You can find info on lodging at www.Goldendoodles.net or www.DoodlesInDewey.com. This is a social gathering. Vendors (including breeders) must purchase a vendor's permit to sell items or puppies on the beach. There is no fee to attend, but donations are…See More
"So it seems that Laci was getting too much protein in her diet. She is on a grain-free diet but we need to make sure she is getting enough carbs. We give a grain-free kibble and we cook boiled potatos and chicken and she is now doing great. Thank…"
"Laci has also been know to eat find items in the yard so we try to keep an eye on her when she is in the backyard. I will keep the brand of food in mind in case she does not do well on her old food. Thanks!"
Laci is doing much better, however we are only feeding her chicken and rice as instructed by the vet for 5 days. We had a stool sample and it came back negative, however she is also known for eating rabbit poop. We will get her back on…"
"Carrie, There is a ton of good information in the Food Group. Several Doodles that I know of have digestive issues and many owners home cook for their dogs. Lots of good discussions on this issue. Good…"
"My Daisy came from the breeder with issues...whenever she pooped it looked like her kibble and then it became increasingly watery. After going to vet she had been diagnosed with worms and giardia she was treated and her poop still always looked like…"
"Laci is now 17 months, however when she was really little she would have very loose stools until we changed her to grain-free food with probiotics and added the Tripett to her kibble. Two days ago she started to vomit early in the am which was all…"
"ok so I just realized that I should be responding here and not on my wall...lol
Thank you for your response... we have kept Laci on a grain-free diet with some exceptions to rice and potato which she can stomach without any issues. Hopefully in a…"
"Holly (four and a half years old) had digestive issues as a puppy and a young dog.
We fed her Nature's Variety Raw Beef Patties which she thrived on, but they were quite expensive.
Over the last year or so, we began to…"
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 an Apricot Goldendoodle named Laci. She is 15 months old and is a bundle of joy and energy. She loves to play with her big little sister Sarah whom is a 7 year old Cockapoo. Laci loves EVERYBODY especially her daddy and her grandparents. We are all looking forward to our first Doodle Romp this year, it looks like a great time for all.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I have allergies to pet hair and dander so when we had to have our miniature Poodle put down there was a huge void in our home. We did a lot of research and the temperament and good nature of Goldendoodles, we discovered, was second to none. So taking everything into consideration it was a no-brainer.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
We take walks, play in the yard (she loves sticks) and go to visit grand mom's house. They live in Delaware so we all go to the beach and walk and play on the beach. Laci also loves to ride in the car so sometimes we pack Laci in the car and just go for a ride.
Does your doodle(s) shed?

Would you be willing to Dog Sit on occasion for other DoodleKisses members? (You are NOT committing to anything by saying yes - you are just saying you might be willing to do this if you were acquainted with the other member and the circumstances were right.)
The LesPouchs is sharp so it may not be right for her. It is a slicker but the tines are bent and the body is flexible. Ned had the green one as a pup when his coat was not as thick but we mostly use the stiffer one (purple) now because his coat is poodle thick. We also have, among the myriad of grooming gear and products, a pin brush which doesn't get all the way down but works fine when Ned is shorter or freshly groomed. It works well on Clancy's coat also. We got it from Kemp but it isn't holding up like the LesPouchs brushes.
There is a wonderful brush that you can get that really helps get down to the skin and get the tangles out. It is a slicker brush made by LesPouchs and is pricy but well worth it. If you want to get one you can google doodlecountry.com The owner is also a member here - Kemp (you can find his page here also. Anyway you can describe Laci's coat and he can help you choose the correct one. Because Clancy sheds and rarely mats, we could use other brushes on him, but on Ned - that is the only one that works. We also use a steel comb after we brush Ned. Join the grooming group for tips and to share your experiences with others. We haven't ever had to cut Ned too short but we had a foster that had to be shaved. We had to watch out for sunburn until he grew out some.
Thank you for the friend request. Laci is just beautiful. Does she shed at all? Our rescue, Clancy has a coat that looks like Laci's does (not the color) in pictures. He sheds a lot but he doesn't mat so...
