Leslie J replied to Katie C.'s discussion Losing fuzzy Puppy coat at 15 weeks old!?
"Cocoa doesn’t shed but when I brush her I get tons of soft hair- this soft fur is down near her skin. I line brush her with a Les Pooch to get it all out. It’s important to get this fur brushed out, otherwise it will mat. "

Dog Grooming Lessons in LA

We are moving from Los Angeles to a more rural community.  I’d like to start grooming Cocoa myself but have never used clippers on a dog before- I’m totally intimidated. Is there anyone in the LA area who would be willing to give me a lesson or two- I’d be happy to pay!See More

Leslie J replied to Cathy and Daisy and Harper's discussion Dog park question
"The same thing happened to Cocoa. I’ve taken her to a dog park twice and both times the dogs kept humping her. She didn’t like it at all- after the third one humped her she came and hid behind me.   Cocoa loves meeting other dogs…"

"I’m not sure how old your puppy is, but every two hours doesn’t sound often enough to me. We started by taking Cocoa out every 30 minutes (I work from my home so this was possible for me). If I wasn’t able to do this (running…"

Leslie J replied to Mary, Scrappy and Sully's discussion Pet Insurance Feedback?
"One thing I would check if I bought pet insurance again- check on the rate for older dogs. It seems the rates go up dramatically after the dog is 7 or 8 years old, some plans more than others. By that time you may have pre-existing conditions that…"

Leslie J replied to Morgan's discussion Jumping and play biting
"When Cocoa was a puppy I had young children. What a trainer suggested is to let Cocoa gradually earn her freedom.  We kept her contained- in a crate, in a room with a gate, or tethered (some people use puppy pens) , not the run of the…"

What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Our family has a Labradoodle. Cocoa was born in July '09- so she's eight years old- and we can't believe how smart and adorable she is.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
Loved the temperaments of Labs and Poodles... wanted low/no shedding.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
The groomer gives her a cut every few months- I bath and comb her in between.

How much does Lola weigh now?  She is adorable!  I love all the pictures with your boys and her.  They crack me up because that reminds me of my kids & Bexter.  Thanks for commenting about my problem with my son & dog.  You definitely gave me a reality check of what I could be doing!
