"Great tip! I'll give it a try. Definitely seeing improvement in Pippin as well as he gets older, and all the work the family is putting into training and socializing really does pay off too, so a big pat on the back to all of us…"
"Tori was in NO way a mushy - cuddler type dog - at the beginning... we had a male GR who would constantly be nudging at our hands for a petting and some love'n... Tori didn't even want to be touched mush. Now all my boys wanted was…"
"Thanks Sandy. Resource guarding hasn't been an issue with Pippin. I can give him a new knuckle bone and take it away from his mouth and no problems. I must admit I was surprised (very happy though!). He does not like…"
"I let Monty have at it with the box - you pick your battles...lol.
Try boiling some chicken broth and soaking the antler in it. It should help increase the interest level in it.
I really started noticing a change in Monty at 8-9 months and I see it…"
"Thanks David! Bully sticks and knuckle bones are life savers! We do have an antler for Pippin but he really doesn't like it. I'm not sure if he even knows what to do with it :) I just keep reminding myself to…"
"Thanks so much for this post! As many DK'ers know ,I have made no secret about Hattie, who is now four months old, being a handful. From reading about Doodle's, I had envisioned a much different puppy, but I too can see who she will be in…"
"LOL- Silly doodle! - watch that money... it's one of Tori's favorite snacks! In fact I came home to half a 20 dollar bill the other day under the kitchen table. STILL don't know where she got it - but just when I…"
"Hang in there, you have a while to go. Monty was very mouthy from 4 to 10 months. Now (10 months) I'd say it's 20% of what it used to be, I think they just grow out of it. Sounds like you're doing the right things to encourage good…"
"HI all, Just finished reading through all of the posts in this thread. So good to read everyone's responses and to know that we are not alone. Pippin is just over 6 months old and is still quite mouthy with us, although…"
Hello Gabrielle and Bentley, Welcome to DoodleKisses and thanks for sharing all the adorable pictures!! Bentley looks like a total sweetheart; what a charmer! Looks like your girls couldn't love him more. Summer Smiles
Hi Gabrielle - thanks for the comment our our baseball photo and the friend invite. I've come across a lot of doodles named Bentley - for some reason it's such a fitting name! Your Bentley is beautiful!
I gave Coco some yogurt...I don't know if I needed to or not but it certainly didn't hurt her. It also is good for diarrhea from what I've read. The vet didn't say anything about it. The second round we gave her was a bit stronger since she had grown and we did 10 days instead of 7 (don't know if that was posted or not)...it seems to have done the trick! What an adorable puppy :)
