What do your dogs know?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Stacy on Saturday. 16 Replies

I was just sitting here and my eyes were itchy. I reached into the drawer and pulled out some eye drops and put them in. Katie just sat there and watched me. She didn't even try to help! Then I threw…Continue

Is there a word for this?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Stacy Dec 26, 2017. 6 Replies

Not about doodles, but dogs in general. Is there a word that encompasses the type of dog that has a long back and short legs? Dachshunds, corgis, basset hounds, etc. I know the term brachycephalic,…Continue

Katie's CT scan

Today I have a newfound sympathy for patients and parents at work. From my perspective I look up and three hours has gone by, and it seems totally normal that results from tests aren't back yet. From…Continue

Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie replied to Stacy's discussion Ava's latest vet visit in the group Health and Medical Issues (for our pets)

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
