Re: Aggression in 14 week old

I would recommend you speak to Doodle Trust.

They will take in your puppy, assess, train and rehome to the right environment. No kennels involved, all based in a fosterers home.
I have previously been a fosterer, and now assist in other areas.

Re: Aggression in 14 week old

I think it would be better to return this puppy to the breeder, you clearly are not happy with your choice and the pup would be better off in a home that uses positive training.

Re: Kennel Club Focus Meeting Your views please!

Big no from me too.

Health, temperament and diversity will all be affected.

It's about the KC making money, instead they should examine their own practices and destruction of dog breeds.

Re: How much is too much?

I believe most 50/50 are low/non-shedding, but I have met one who looked like a scruffy F1. Make sure the health tests are in place and go with a breeder you trust. Have a look at FB page or blog Labradoodle Puppy Finder. Breeders on there must have completed a minimum set of health tests. Good luck...

Re: Hips score

Firstly its great that you are looking at health tests. The 19 score is above average for the Labradoodle which I believe is currently 12 in total. You also need elbows scored, which you should have had done at the same time as the hips. You also need as a minimum to test for PRA, Vwd and BVA eye te...

Re: Vegetarian dog

I wouldn't let one of my pups go to a family who only fed a vegetarian diet.

Dogs are not human, dogs need meat. You will struggle to find anyone who supports your view I'm afraid.

Re: Some info needed

I breed Australian Labradoodles, and yes they are expensive, but a lot of money does go into health tests, stud fees, rearing a puppy well etc... What I would like to point out is that allergies are not just about the coat but also saliva and dander related too. Out of four families who visited me w...

Re: Questions from a new doodle owner

Hi.
Great advice there.
I always use Johnsons Baby Shampoo, it's mild and has never affected any of my lot.
