Car Safety

I know we've talked about this before, but I'm trying to figure out how to restrain the dogs for the car ride on vacation. I've read too many horror stories on facebook recently about dogs being…Continue

Doodles and boats

Quick question for the people who have boat loving doodles. Have you had any problems with dog nails damaging the vinyl seats on the boat? And is there a good solution? Don't they make those nail…Continue

So you think you want a smart dog?It’s all fun and games until the dog outsmarts you! Just last week I was crowing about how smart Maggie is. And she’s definitely smart. I’m not sure how she learns…Continue

I can't really complain. We haven't had any accidents inside when I have been home for over a month. I'm starting to feel like I can trust her when I'm here and I don't have to watch her every single…Continue

"I feel like I should have known this, but I did not. So thanks! Nutrition is hard. For dogs and people too. I think if I just ate whole, fresh food I would probably do better. But all of that processed junk just tastes so good."

"I like the cloudstar rogue treats. They are just meat and some preservatives. Pure bites are great, but at training class they're really too big to just pop a bite in their mouth and keep going. And when I try to break them up it kind of works…"

"Christine - I think you're doing fine. There's nothing wrong with just a regular crate in the car, and seat belting it in is even better. Maggie's crate is enormous though, she's really tall. And she hates it. I don't think…"

"If you found a trainer that gave classes on multiple evenings, you might be able to make an arrangement where you could drop in at any of the classes held that week?"

The Evolution of Maggie

Posted on April 17, 2018 at 10:26am 7 Comments

Maggie’s a different dog than any I’ve known before. It’s been 9 weeks that she’s been here, and we coexist peacefully. She’s doing perfectly on her potty training when I’m home. Going to work is still a major work in progress, and I haven’t found the perfect solution, but we’re working on it.

She’s still not very affectionate. Everyone has an opinion, and I think that the truth lies somewhere within all the wisdom I’ve received. She went to see the groomer last week and she did…


the doodles scared a possom "to death"

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
