What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Doodles (Dudes) is my first Doodle, Bailey is my BIG doodle, both are inseparable and have me in giggles all day and all night.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I saw a pair being walked and fell in love with the breed, to find out about the lack of shedding was a bonus.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Watching them wrestle with each other in the yard. Bailey loves to swim and will chase any stick or ball thrown in for him, Doodles likes to stay on land and watch. Bailey loves for me to serve him tennis balls, Dudes hates the tennis ball but is an expert soccer player, and is likely to be in the world cup in Brazil in 2014 (Watch it Beckham!)
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major, Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
They both get brushed one side brushed out every morning. Last trip to the groomers was the last. Everyone was traumatized.
Favorite Doodle Products?
Cowboy Magic,simple wide tooth comb works a treat and my new treat pouch that attaches to my belt.
WIthout a doubt, the easyleader harness have changed thiers and my life.
Walking two large heavy dogs together.....now a total breeze and a pleasure.
Do you have a website of your own? If so, share it here:
How long ago did you move from Bay? We just moved here 7 years ago and feel like we never lived anywhere else! Which house did you live in? My friends are very house aware..cracks me up..but if they know the house they know who lives/ed there! We have only one Doodle..an English ..but I would love another..maybe a Laberdoodle next! If you ever come to visit Bay and have the "kids" along you will have to look us up for a play date!
Hi, Kate. If you look at the Doodle Kisses main page near the bottom, you'll see a box with all the listings for the Doodle Rescue Collective, and for IDOG...these are the 2 nationwide doodle rescue groups. Clicking on any of the listings will take you to the information for that group. Even if you don't see a dog you are interested in at the moment, go to the groups websites and fill out an application anyway. many dogs are adopted through approved applications that are already on file, and the listings never even go onto Petfinder, so your chances of finding a rescue doodle are greatly increased if you apply before you see a dog you want. These dogs are in great demand, and there are hundreds of applications for the more desirable ones. The DRC is based in NJ and does a lot of adoptions in the North East.
