"I can recommend my groomer. He owns his own shop and is very good and patient with new dogs to grooming and also with pups. Sophie and Wilson have been going there for over a year and they now know the routine. Bark Ave is the…"
"Thanks for the friend request, Karla! Wilson and Sophie are adorable! I'm curious how you walk your 2. If one of us (my husband or me) is walking them, we use a splitter leash for both and if both of us are walking them we use separate leashes.…"
"Thank goodness all is well!!!! We have 2 doodles, a male and female and I find their antics are similar to what you have told. They are 10 months now and life continues to be an adventure. although they have settled down quite…"
We have had some issues in scheduling our indoor romps this year so I went ahead and posted an outdoor schedule for the 1st Saturday morning of each month at 9AM so hopefully the Doodles can get out and play early and you can still have the most of the day for other activities.Please feel free to email me at email@example.com or…See More
"Hi Andrea, No the pups haven't had all their shots yet, so I guess we will catch up next time. I try and get them out as much as I can outside around our house, walks but nothing formal yet. Can't wait to get started!!!"
Northern VA Area Doodle Group. We schedule monthly Doodle Romps to get our doodles together to play. Winter Romps are going to be held outdoors now at the Beatley Library Dog Park on Duke Street in Alexandria.See More

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 Goldendoodles, a male, Wilson and a female, Sophie from the same litter. Wilson looks like his Mom, a Golden, Sophie like her Dad, a poodle. We have no other pets, but 3 grandchildren to help keep us busy.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We have always had working dogs who needed a job. This time we wanted a fun loving dog that loves people and others! So we got 2 and have found them to be such fun.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Right now they are 11 weeks old and seeing the world through real puppies eyes! They love the leash and we are walking and walking. The training is going well, but could use some advice.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
Favorite Doodle Products?
We don't have any yet...only squeeky toys!
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.)
Thanks for the friend request, Karla! Wilson and Sophie are adorable! I'm curious how you walk your 2. If one of us (my husband or me) is walking them, we use a splitter leash for both and if both of us are walking them we use separate leashes. We do not walk them at heel, but instead they walk ahead of us. It was hard getting use to that after years of walking at heel with Lucy, but its the only way to fit us all on the sidewalk. Trainers seem to understand, although I still have a bit of guilt over it.
Hi Karla. Unfortunatly I wouldn't much help in the training of 2 puppies at the same time. We got our second doodle (Lilly) when she was 2. We did get Gus at 11 weeks and did the crate training thinmg with him. One of the best things I can suggest though is to join the puppy madness group. Also take a look at the NoVA Doodle group to keep in touch with other members in the area. Also there is a schedule that was just posted of upcoming romps in the NoVA area.
Welcome to Doodle Kisses Karla! Sophie and Wilson are soooooo cute! You are one busy Doodle Mom right now with two little ones! How fun:) This site is incredible and the people are sooooo super too! The information on Doodles is endless and so helpful! Enjoy and have fun:)
