"I guess I don't really understand how it is "impossible to be out with them 100% of the time". If my two have to potty, I let them out and stand in the door way to make sure they aren't getting into anything and then they…"
"Colby sounds like my Boca: Obsessed with squirrels! We have a 6 foot fence that she scaled once. Now we have a trip wire up. And she's never made it over again. There's also this company that makes a roller…"
"Thanks Melissa...Colby just gets crazy over the squirrels. We have blocked off much of the fence and areas where he digs with pavers from the garden...so now he is finding ways to climb up and jump over the fence. This is how he got out…"
"Hi, thanks for checking in on this. Colby is just mesmerized by squirrels...we have lots of trees in the area back behind our house and fence, and Colby gets nuts over the squirrels!!! (He does this from the windows of our house also.)…"
"Thanks for your advice!!! We have been working at training them and will continue. I think Colby just knows there is a big world on the other side of the fence, and wants to explore. Derek doesn't know anything else, so is very…"
"Hi Mickey, As you know I have 4 doodles and have come across this problem more than once for various reasons. I also considered the electric fence but before that I tried the remote collars and waited for the moment of the escape or bad…"
"Do you watch Colby when he is out in the yard? If you are out there with them then he shouldn't be able to dig out. When he does get out, where does he go? Does he just run away or is he just standing on the other side of the…"
"If they "rough house" I'd worry about collars unless you're right there...they can get tangled and it can be really dangerous. I really think the only way to be sure is that you need to be out there....watch and the minute…"
We have two Doodles, both big guys, who we love to pieces. Our 2nd Doodle is a rescue who we got over Thanksgiving weekend, his name is Colby. Our other guy is Derek. These two are devoted to each other!! Derek, 100+ pounds at 11 months, and is a big mellow dood. Colby, 65 lbs at 2 years, is a bit of a wild child and scrappy...probably due to his uncertain life before joining our family. We have a large, fenced in yard. Colby has dug himself out of the yard 3 times and run away in his…See More

We have a standard sized Australian Labradoodle, who has a gorgeous black coat. His name is Derek, after Derek Jeter, and he is a gentle giant. 80lbs of furry love.

What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Hi Michele ~ Derek Doodle is very handsome. I have never seen a black doodle in real life. I had a black standard poodle for years and he hated the sun. When we got a doodle, we decided to go with chocolate, and he does not like the sun either!! LOL Maybe non of them do. I see you have found the groups section on the main page. There are many fun groups and if you like photography you will find that particular group extremely active and popular.
