4 weeks - did life exist before Coops?

What can I say about week 4. I love this dog and honestly can't remember life before Cooper.

As I write this he's lying on my feet (though he has a bully stick to keep him occupied lol).  I feel compelled to write a bit of a cheesy post. I have been a pretty indepedent person. I've lived alone for…

Week three already?

Another week with my pup and I feel like I don't remember life before Cooper! I love this little guy so much it's ridiculous.

He continues to do well and is growing like a weed. He's up to 18 lbs (at 11 weeks) and seems to be clumbsier the bigger he gets! We had a week free of accidents (yah!) but his first little puke. It was this morning in his crate and it was clear liquid. It hasn't happened since and his stools are normal so I'm not too fussed. …

Week two complete!

So I remember my saviour (Sue) at the pet supply store down the street said to me last week 'just wait until next week... when he's got more courage and energy'. I just kind of brushed it off rather than stressing too much about what week 2 would hold. Sue was right in MANY ways but week 2 is now behind us and we made it :). …

Week one is done!

Well it's been a week and a day since Cooper came home and I have to say that it's been a pretty great week! I think I was bracing myself for the worst based on all that 'good luck sleeing' and 'I hope he doesn't ruin your floors' I was getting from people leading up to his arrival. This little guy has been SO great and I am so happy with how he's settled in. Here are a few highlights and challenges from week one:…

Day 4... First visit to the vet!

So last night went really well. Cooper spent his first night in his 'big boy' crate on the floor and slept through the night again with no accidents which makes mommy really happy. Today, however, was a different story. He peed in the house TWICE and it didn't make much sense. Both times he had been out about an hour before.... I didn't make a fuss and just cleaned it up and made sure to keep taking him out regularly but it did seem a bit odd.... two steps forward, one step back I guess!…

Day three... somebody is TIRED!

Well it's day three and Cooper's second full day at home and, I have to say, things went really well... maybe even too well! I am nervous that this may be the calm before the storm ;).

First things first. Last night Cooper was bouncing off the walls before bed. This guy is definitely a night owl... which is fine because I am usually up late doing school work. I was a bit nervous putting him to bed as I thought he'd still have too much energy (even though we played fetch for a good…

Day two... first full day in his new pad

t's Cooper's second day at home and I've been trying to tackle the pen/crate situation during the day time. I think I've seen some progress throughout the day so hopefully it continues.

I setup the pen again last night and got my bf to clamp down the latches while he was here to prevent any more escapes!

I put him in there this morning and he did the usual flip out but then eventually fell asleep. I waited until he was calm and then let him out and rewarded him. I was still… Continue

Cooper comes home (night/day one)

Hello fellow doodle-lovers!


I just joined the site and am so happy I found it. So much great advice and loving stories on here. I want to share my experience after bringing home my boy, Cooper. I'm looking for tips or even assurance that I'm doing the 'right' things and also want to share my experience so maybe others can learn too!

A little about my guy

I got Cooper from a breeder in Niagara Falls (Goldendoodles of Grassy Brook). I had a great…
