Hi Deb.. in my experience of doodles -

Dog = Big and generally dopey :lol:

Bitch = smaller, but likely to be more "feisty" :wink:

I wanted a Dog for the dopey part - but the OH did not want a very large dood, most of the boys we've met have been 26-28". Now we have a feisty wee Muppet. Annette also has a feisty girl, Buffy.

Others may have a different view.

After having a girl springer spaniel, ithink anything will be calm in comparision, she lived up to her name she bounced everywhere, miss her terribly, but I think getting a new pup will fill the gap she left in our family, kids are pining for her everyday. Hubby wants a dog to een the score I have two girls and one boy and he says he cannot cope with another hormonal female in the house lol

Of course Annette, your Doods are my main "experience" - but Miss M is proving to be just as feisty as Buffy. I am having to clamp down hard on the play biting and growling! :shock:

Agree with Debs. We too had a much loved female springer who passed away 18 months ago - she was a hundred mile an hour girl and never seemed still. We are going for a dog this time - pup arrives on Saturday so we are very hopeful that he will be 'dopey' and calm. Will let you know!

Mmmmm I dunno really! Your dood may pick you!
When we went to see about Brodie I had 'female chocolate one called Maude" engraved on my brain - for three years all I wanted was a female chocolate one! When we got there there was a lovely wee choccy girl, then I spied this big apricot boy thing - and fell in love! ( we had been on the waiting list for a year so we were getting to pick)
Also our wee boys are anything but dopey and calm!! Well bob is now - but Brodie is a looney! :)

If we do ever get another one ( and my DH says he's like 6!!) Yeh right! Then I still want a chocolate girl called Maude!

Agree 100%. Scarlet was a lunatic until recently, she is 2 now. Very very active and demanding.
Scrumpy has always been very calm and content. He loves to sleep, eat and play in that order lol.
