Neuter Question

Hey doodle lovers!  I've searched in the neuter questions and really didn't find an answer to my question.  I just had my 1 1/2 year old doodle neutered on Tuesday the 10th. Vet's instructions is to keep him calm for 7 - 10 days...and like many other doods, he is RARING to go. He is acting as though nothing happened to him.  I do not want to compromise his healing.... am I able to take him on LEASHED walks?? He is starting to drive us and the other dogs insane! Thank youSee More

Profile Information

About Me:
I'm an animal lover and love the outdoors. I have always had a dog in my life since I was a baby, and I think my life would be rather dull without one. I work full time at a radio station as a Sales Administrator and am also a Dog Groomer in the evenings and weekends. I love spending time with my husband and the dogs who are all spoiled.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
I have 2 Goldendoodles. My female's name is Chloe. She is 3 1/2 years old and very active. Her favourite thing to do is play, play and play some more. She loves Frisbee, ball and swimming. We adopted a 1 1/2 year old male GD in the beginning of March 2018. His name is Watson. He is high energy and loves to play with his sister Chloe. He enjoys our daily walks in the bush trails and LOVES food. They share their home with their brother Koda (9 year old Black Lab)
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Rescue, Rehome
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
My aunt has a doodle type dog and I love his personality and his looks so we decided to add Chloe to our family. I also like the fact that they are low to non-shedding dogs
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
My favourite thing to do with Chloe and Watson and their brother is take long hikes in the bush trails, camping and snuggling of course.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
ME
Favorite Doodle Products?
Brushes and combs!!! ;)
Relationship Status:
Married
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.)

Spring Time = Sloppy, wet weather

Posted on April 25, 2017 at 8:59am 5 Comments

Well it's spring time here in Northern Ontario. To most people Spring time means warmer weather, fresh beginnings, sweet smell of fresh air. Well, to us it means rain, rain, wet snow, rain and more rain.  Most of our winter snow has melted, but we have just gotten a few inches of wet, sticky snow over night; it will melt by tomorrow as it is supposed to be fairly warm +13°C.  My issues with this weather is that Chloe will not go pee or poop in the backyard now that the snow is gone and the…
