Re: Compo

:D brillian result. For me it is generating the motivation to return when called. One gundog book I read suggested making recall a massively fun party and being absolutely consistent with positive reinforcement. I unashamedly bribe our little Doodle back to me with pony nuts each time she is whistle...

Re: Labradoodle breeders are back yard breeders?

I did encounter one rude man who scoffed at our little Dood and called her a designer dog and a very expensive mongrel. She is neither. I simply smiled and moved on. Our vet was full of enthusiasm and also refered to her F1 hybrid vigor as a very positive element. Her breeder is extremely responsibl...

Re: Transporting dogs in the car boot - advice please!

We started by using a guard to keep our then puppy in the boot after she became old enough. Besides howling enough to break our ear drums she managed to dislodge it and get into the front of the car several times so we had to rethink. We now use a harness strapped into an anchor point in the boot us...

Re: Names of your dog

Our little Doodle is romantically named after a local heroine who, in mid 1600's successfully defended her castle while her husband was away on parliamentary business. What a gal! It is a very pretty name, however it has not entirely stuck. She now has 4 additional names that have evolved without ou...

Re: A Sock-ing Surprise

Don't want to alarm you but I've heard of dogs having to have major surgery to remove blockages which have turned out to be socks. We were on high alert with Dylan - he would constantly steal items from the laundry basket one being Johns favourite T shirt. He came out of the woods one day with a bi...

Re: 7 month old labradoodles coat?

Lola's coat is a mixture too. The fur on her top is much courser, denser and slightly darker than the sides which is very soft and fleecy. Her back is much thicker too as is the fur on her neck and chest which is curlier but her head is super soft and wavy :lol: :shock: :D and might I add .....with...

Re: First Season?

One trick is to cut up an old pair of tights so it's like a pair of tight fitting shorts with a hole for the tail, and pop in a sanitary towel. But you may not need to do anything as some dogs don't produce much and/or are good at cleaning themselves up. Immi you are soooo resourceful I have ones w...
