Hi all!I recently started noticing a part developing on Teddy's coat. He never had it as a baby, and now at four months, it seems to be getting more pronounced. I am not sure if it's because his hair…Continue

"If the ear infection does not clear up over time or if it’s recurring frequently I’ve found that animal chiropractic can really help. I have a 2 year old labradoodle that has had ear issues that do not respond to medication. My…"

"The floppy ears do contribute to moisture retention in the ear- it creates reduces air circulation and no light gets in there either, so they don;t have a chance to dry out. Combine that dark, moist environment with the think woolly hair that traps…"

"My Teddy used to get pretty frequent ear infections- now I use an ear cleansing solution that I got from the vet after every bath, swimming, romp in the rain, etc. I think the floppy ears make controlling the moisture in the ear more challenging. I…"

"It sounds like a pretty severe infaction, if it required sedation and steroids. So it's probably going to take some time to start looking better."

Ear Infection

Hi Everyone!I'm a first time dog owner and have zero experience with battling an ear infection. Beginning Sunday, we noticed that Teddy was shaking his head a lot and scratching his left ear. We had just given him a bath and figured it might be water but quickly noticed a swollen, dirty ear. We're typically good about cleaning his ears out weekly, but we got him groomed this month in preparation for his neutering surgery, and then were waiting for the clear recheck before giving him a bath.We…See More

"Definitely reminds me of our F1 Teddy who took his time to doodle out. Though he's only 8 months and still changing, his hiar went from pin straight to wavier once we professionally groomed him. That's when I saw the biggest change in his…"

Stephanie Bowman replied to AliandShooter's discussion Crate vs. play pen
"Our doodle Teddy used to stay in his crate while we were at work. I was lucky in that I could go home during lunchtime to give him a break from it. In all honesty, though I understand the science behind the crate, I've always hated the idea of…"

Stephanie Bowman replied to Meghan's discussion Will my Banner doodle?? in the group From Pup to Adult
"What a cutie! My doodle Teddy is an F not and F1b which I believe would make him more prone to looking like a retriever than Banner since the percentages were technically in his favor. When we initially got Teddy, he had VERY little facial…"

"Oh my goodness! SHe's so stinkin' cute! Teddy started out with a similar coat to Pita. He's only 7 months so he still isn't finished developing, but his hair started changing at around 4-6 months and significantly changed after…"

What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Theodore "Teddy" Bowman
Mini F1 Goldendoodle

I am a fun, loving, crazy, cute little boy. I love peanut butter and watermelon, but don't really love walks yet. My parents are working on that!
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
My husband is allergic to dogs so we decided on a breed that's hyper-allergenic. Goldendoodles are also infamous for being smart, family-friendly pets, so we wanted an addition to our family that would turn out to be a pawesome family member!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
-Take him on walks, even though he hates them.
-Feed him watermelon. I love hearing the crunch!
-Seeing him grow and his obedience increase.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
Us for now.
Favorite Doodle Products?
Any burrow toys and Kongs!
