Apologies for the poor photos, my mom sent me these and her phone has a crappy camera! So, I hope you can see these well enough to help :)Her friend just got an F1 Goldendoodle puppy, and it's their…Continue

Looking for advice from people who understand how important dogs are to the family and that this isn't an easy question...My friend adopted a Coton de Tulear (sp?) last year from a breeder who was…Continue

Does your Doodle have "issues"?

That's what we call it when Socrates has these little fits where he either rubs up against a wall or the front of the couch...butt up, head down and just growls and sounds really ferocious! It's…Continue

Socrates had a hard day...

Usually Socs follows me everywhere around the house, even if I step 20 feet into the next room. I brought him home from daycare yesterday and could tell he was tired. I went into the office for a few…Continue

Profile Information

About Me:
I've had a lot of dogs in my life but I never really understood how much they can really become your children until I got my Socs. He's my pride and joy, my baby and my best friend! He makes me smile every time I look at him, and he makes me laugh about something everyday. Life is just better with him around!!
I foster with IDOG (International Doodle Owners Group), an experience that is great for both Socs and myself, we look forward to helping many Doodles find their forever homes!
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Socrates is an Apricot colored standard F1 Goldendoodle. He is the sweetest, smartest, most affectionate dog I have ever seen! This little boy defines the term 'companion animal.' He is happiest just hanging out with us, regardless of what we are doing. He also loves going for runs, riding in the car and being carried like a little baby, even though he has far surpassed the size of a lap dog! We also have 2 cats, Cinnamon and Guido. Socs is pretty indifferent to them, unless they try to snuggle with him - he's not a fan of that!
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I have wanted a dog for some time but was unable to have one in my college apartment. I had plenty of time to research different breeds, and once I stumbled upon the Goldendoodle I knew I had to have one! I have read only positive things about the breed, and my Socrates has proved every one of those things true!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
I love to snuggle with him, he's very fluffy! We also love to go for walks and play tug of war. Just watching him be a silly puppy makes me happy!
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I do, but he goes to a local groomer every few months for a thorough bath and trim.
Favorite Doodle Products?
We would be lost without the Kong toys!! Socs pretty much destroys every toy I give him except his Kongs. They keep him entertained while I'm at work. The Martha Stewart Pets Slicker Brush is one of the best I've found to keep his fur matte free between groomings. The groomer showed me how to do the tap n pull method of brushing and this works like a charm! The Furminator de-matter and detangler is also great, but I usually just have the groomer do a Furminator treatment every few trips in.
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.)
Yes

"They say to leave half to 2/3 of the tail. I think the 1 and a half inches refers to how much to remove, lol. If you look at photos of Standard Poodles, they have way more than an inch and a half of tail. "

"This pup's tail looks like it was docked shorter than a Poodle's tail. The correct docking of a Poodle's tail is to remove only the upper third. "

Samantha I just looked at your slideshow of Socs and he is absolutely adorable.  You can tell that little guy (actually big guy) has lots of personality.  I love your photos and my favorite is #l on the slideshow, it is beautiful and what a handsome Dood!

Sorry it's taken me a while to get back to you! I took Holly to the dog park in Waterloo and had a really bad experience, but I've never taken her to the one in Cedar Falls. I've heard good things but it's so hard to trust other peoples dogs, and the owners too :). I would be fine bringing her to your acreage, she does well with coming when called for the most part, and I couldn't see her trying to run off. We'll figure something out, let me know what you think!

Hi Samantha,
That sounds great! I currently am working until 6:00 every night, but starting in July I should be done each day by 2 or 3:00, so maybe that would work better. Do you think there's somewhere we could meet? We don't have a fenced in yard so we have to take her to friends and families houses to borrow their yards. What about you?

We had the same situation in our puppy class! We've started taking her to doggie daycare once a week to interact with other dogs, it's been a huge help. She's got a lot of energy and loves to play. She only weighs 30 lbs at just over 7 months. She's also supposed to be a standard but I don't think she'll get too big either. Feel free to share any cute stories :). Hope you have a Happy New Year!

Hi Samantha,
You are really close to us! Maybe in the spring we can set up a play date, It would be fun to see Holly interact with another doodle her age, I'm sure she would love it :). How much does Socrates weigh? He is a very cute puppy! Keep in touch!

Abel is just over 6 months. How much does Socs weigh?
