sharon, i agree that some dogs are born with more aggression than others but that aggresion has to bought out wich go,s back to bad owners/breeders. fiona,my wife is going through the change so i do know a little bit about it.

Well, I would like to add to this thread that as a responsible mum of five children (including a baby) and the owner of four dogs - all of whom are considered good dogs with children - I would never ever, ever leave a small child/baby alone for even a second with ANY DOG OF ANY BREED. Certain breeds are less predictable with children but none of us knows what any dog is really thinking or feeling.... so no one should ever take that risk.

I think Sharon. as I have said before in posts that the popularity of the Labradoodle will be its downfall. :cry:

Yes Terry a lot of dogs are aggressive due to how they are treated.
I watched a young Rottie being draged around outside an employment shop today, the teenage girl was more interested in making a noise and running around the boys, poor dog was dragged from here to there on the lead, she was totaly unaware that the dog was being pushed by people.

Breeder's should take more interest where the puppies they produce go to, but to often its just a money making project to breed puppies.
But some breeds do have a natural instint to aggression and owners should be aware of the short comings of what can happen if crossing two
incompatible dogs.
Got to rush now off to Dog training with Sydney.

Perhaps the owners should have a licence to own a dog, rather than the dog a licence to live! That could be interesting!!! :lol:


They should have to sign on after the basic tests have been carried out! :shock:

And get shot it they can't own a well tempered socialised dog! :lol:

Im sorry but the "no bad dog just bad owners" phrase is a dangerous myth. Dogs can be bred for any purpose including the unlawful, Some litters owned by the old dogmen were so "game " that they killed the weaker or less popular litter mates. I know what Im talking about, there are very dangerous dogs and they can only be treated in one way, put down. The penalties for the breeders are derisory.
Crosses vary tremendously which is why people have carefully bred pedigree dogs for centuries which bred correctly provide a degree of certainty. If you want to know pretty well what you are getting you buy a well bred pedigree dog. Ive owned an absolutely charming Dane/GSD cross but I think, in general, its a daft and risky cross, likewise my sweet and gentle Collie/GSD cross.
Please dont worry... the poodle will NOT die out, registrations dont change a lot year on year. There was an unfortunate increase after Topscore Contradiction won Crufts, I was not cheering at the time, no lover of their breed welcomes the increased " market" after such a win. Any huge increase in the desirability of any breed is followed by a natural correction.
ALWAYS visit the premises and see mum with pup. There are no excuses!
DONT BUY FROM PUPPY HARMERS

as we all have our own opinions and think that our opinion is the right one lets put this topic to bed while we are all still friends.

hi fiona, we have had photos of a lot of the pups and we meet with the lovely? rio a lot. we also talk to a lot of the owners and they all tell us the pups are doing really well. it was to hard to have a favourite as they were all so lovely.we were going to keep kays lily but circumstances prevented us from doing so. we will be breeding rosie in about june and this time we will be keeping a pup.

Yup, luckily for me I got to have Lilly and she is a little stunner :D

Janet, Terry and I have kept in constant touch and they always have updates on how others in the litter are doing which is wonderful.

Lilly's temperament is exceptional (even for a Labradoodle) and all the other puppy owners I've either spoken to or chatted on the forums have said the same. We are very lucky puppy owners indeed!

Can't wait to see what the next litter turns out like.

:D
