JUST AN OZZY UPDATE..Sorry it's been so long :-)

Hi
Hope everyone and their doods are having a great summer. It's been AGES since I've been on the site! Mainly because we have been having so much fun over the summer with our pup Ozzy (now 19 weeks!) who I introduced some 2 months ago.

Since bringing Ozzy home, he has added a completely different dimension to our family unit! He has settled in extremely well and is just one laid back dood :lol: We all LOVE him to pieces as do all our family and friends. He appears very well socialised and extremely tolerant of all the children who come to play with my 2 sons.

We took him to 'puppy socialisation' classes for a short 4 week course and are waiting on obedience classes starting at the end of August. So far we have trained him to 'sit', 'lie down' and 'wait' (even if we throw his favourite toy!) however I'm struggling with the 're-call' when out walks as he goes a bit 'nuts' when he see's other dogs or humans. He just wants to play :lol: . Hoping the training classes in August will help with this.

We recently returned from a fantastic 10 days holiday in Norfolk. Being a 7.5 hour drive from where we stay in Scotland, we were a little nervous re: how Ozzy would be in the car but we needn't have worried as he was a star!

Anyway thought I should check in and update those of you who were exceptionally helpful to me regarding giving advice & answering my 100's of questions before Ozzy's arrival. Ive added (hopefully!) some pics of our recent holiday with Ozzy.

It truly is the best thing we have ever done as a family... xxx

What lovely photo's! Ozzy is a very handsome doodle. He actually looks alot like our little Lola who is 13 weeks old :shock: They are just so much fun and make our lives complete. Keep posting pictures as they change so quickly at this age :D :D

Ooh! What a little cutey Ozzy is. Super family photos. Ozzy sounds very clever. Don't worry about the recall as yet. It's just the Doodle thing when they spy other dogs. Yeah! lets play :lol: :lol: Glad you had a lovely holiday and Ozzy travelled well. That's one big hurdle overcome. What a clever wee chappie. Fortunately we are the same with Treacle. She just loves the car. Pick up the car keys and she is there before you. You are NOT going anywhere without ME :roll: :lol: Keep the photos coming.

Hi ecojude, yes we got OZzy from a terrific breeder of Australian labradoodles in Scotland --'Tora labradoodles'. Best thing we ever did!
I still can't get enough of all your doodle pics :lol:

Hi Lou, lovely to see updated pics of Ozzy. Sooo cute!
Great that he loves the car, Daisy is a bit of a work in progress on that front :?
Everything always seems so much further away when travelling form Scotland, so very well done!
