"It always amazes me how resilient and adaptable and loving dogs are. If people were more like dogs the world would be a better place. I'm so glad that DRC could give these girls a new wonderful life. I bet they are wonderful dogs."

Aging in doodles – is this normal?

Ava turned 7 in September. She’s my first large dog, and I know that makes a difference. Papillons are barely adults at 7. And I know Ava didn’t come from the best place or have the best medical care for the first 6 years of her life. And she’s had a hard year. She’s been anesthetized or sedated 5 times in the last year and has had multiple surgeries and health issues, so I know I have to take that into account too.But in the last couple of months I’ve really noticed a change in her activity…See More

the doodles scared a possom "to death"

Posted on November 28, 2016 at 5:42pm 15 Comments

I swear I do not live in the country! I live in a suburb very near the center of my town. It’s not a huge town, but it’s definitely not the country! And it’s far more developed than the subdivision I moved from a year ago – maybe that’s the problem. There was more room for the wildlife to be out in the woods. But I have seen more possums in the yard since I moved here than ever before – in fact I’m sure that I never got up close and personal with one until we moved here.  But the dogs and I…

Stacy, your Doodles are beautiful! I also have my puppy's mother. Daphne was my first Doodle and a year later, Lucy was retired from breeding and needed a forever home. We just love her to pieces!

Hi!  I saw your comment on buying bras in bulk!  lol

I am no expert, but look at how you react to the 'thief' when you find her.  What worked for us, was correcting our pup as soon as possible, with a 'NO' and putting an appropriate toy in his mouth.  We worked on the command 'drop it' as soon as possible too.  They are curious little pups, and they love a good game of chase.  It could be she just enjoys your attention when you find your bras.  We used to have a parrot, and we learned that negative attention is just as good as positive attention. 

it sounds like she might test you on EVERYTHING in the house. And as they grow, they find more interesting things, but most of all, just want your entire focus, and will do things just to get your attention!!  teaching independent appropriate playtime is a chore, but well worth it.  being consistent is the key to success!!  hope it gets better
