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 am the lucky owner of two australian labradoodles:
Darwin, born Sept 2008
Chance, born January 2011
Darwin the biggest sweet-heart of a dog (in a medium sized body). Chance, the 8 month old puppy is feisty, vocal, and outgoing. It looks like he will grow up to be a mini (<25lb). Less fur for grooming :-)
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
Darwin was my first dog, so I did a LOT of research before committing. I think doodles are the ultimate breed in many respects - if I could make a breed from scratch, this is likely what I would end up with.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Patrol the neighbourhood, visit friends, hike, and train. Darwin loves the ball, and has a big bag of tricks he uses to get me to throw it! Chance is also turning out to be toy-motivated, but in his case by his tug toy.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I do all their grooming. Thank goodness they are so laid back.
Heheh how did you manage to train him to that point? NaPoleon is on my lap when I'm cutting his face fur and it's hard to see what I'm doing. Do you have Darwin on a table? I might need to get some tips from you when it's time to cut his fur. Do you use clippers for the coat and then scissor his face?
I absolutely LOVEEE your pictures of your doods!!!!!!! You have done a great job grooming as he looks awsome :) She's got the most gorgeous coat! (I know you have two but the brown one is just a pup). I have not yet cut his fur because winter is approaching however I plan cut his coat for next summer. I hope he doesn't look too silly. My breeder actually wrote out a written agreement for the groomers to sign to agree to leave the head and tail long and NO POODLE cuts!
Fudge did start out as a very Chocolate doodle. Her mom was a parti poodle and she is slowly turning silvery brown (if there is such a thing). Thank you for the nice comments. Enjoy DK. You have the second Darwin that I know of on this site. Both your dogs are adorable.
