Lisa & Sunny replied to Lisa & Sunny's discussion Best chew toy to distract our landshark? in the group Puppy Madness
"Thanks for sharing; I like this approach.  Most of the time we can distract her with a toy, but sometimes she gets in kamikaze mode and launches a surprise attack on the closest leg.  We have put her in time out a few times already, and it…"

EJ & Dante replied to Lisa & Sunny's discussion Best chew toy to distract our landshark? in the group Puppy Madness
"We use the three strike rule - if we are playing and he gets mouthy, the first time we distract with a toy.  Second time, we get up, walk away and ignore him for at least 5 minutes.  Third time, he gets a time out in isolation.  If he…"

"Make sure when you buy bully sticks you look for the odor free ones. The regular ones have a bad stinky smell and not only does your dog smell but so will the carpet and any other thing he chews on/around. Our furbaby likes to sit by us on the couch…"

Lisa & Sunny replied to Lisa & Sunny's discussion Best chew toy to distract our landshark? in the group Puppy Madness
"Thanks for all the great suggestions!  We have not tried bully sticks yet, I'll have to look for those.  I also think a toy (like the rope toy) that she only gets when she needs distraction might be worth trying.  We do have a…"

"Lincoln is now 2, but I remember well those nippy crazy times!  He still has his crazy hour after dinner. Nylabones have some good chew toys, some are for puppies and are softer.  But they can't eat them.  We also found an antler…"

"Oh, how I remember those days! Winnie was so terribly nippy for about the first 4 months that we had her-I seriously thought I was going to go insane. We gave Winnie bully sticks, too, but found that chewing on them too frequently caused loose…"

Best chew toy to distract our landshark?

I've read enough to expect our puppy to go through the dreaded landshark phase, but didn't expect it to start so soon.  We just brought her home on Saturday, and it seems as soon as she started to settle in and feel comfortable, those sharp little teeth came out.  Now she has multiple daily spells where she is nipping at whatever she can reach, including clothing, fingers, hair, and ears.  I've read many discussion threads here on Doodle Kisses on how to handle that; I was just wondering if…See More

"Thank you for all the great suggestions!  We weren't using a leash when we took her out, so we are doing that now.  We also weren't rewarding her for going potty.  Now that we started doing that, she seems more motivated to…"

Lisa & Sunny replied to Christyn Unzueta's discussion How big will my mini goldendoodle get? in the group Mini and Medium Doodles
"Based on my limited experience, I agree, that sound like a lot for a puppy expected to top out at 20 lb.  My mini goldendoodle, who is expected to be 30-40 lb full grown, weighed in at 5.15 lb when we took her to the vet right at 8 weeks old."

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 are adding a mini goldendoodle to our family! We will be bringing our puppy home on March 11th. Her name is Sunny.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We chose a mini goldendoodle because we wanted a family dog who will be good with our kids, now aged (almost) 10 and (almost) 7. We also like the traits of the golden retriever breed but wanted a smaller dog.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
I look forward to finding out!
