I have a mini labradoodle who is high energy and very clever

I'd like to get budgies.

Does anyone have experience - can this work?

Interesting questions! When I was growing up we had Spaniels and budgies and they seemed to get along fine! My mother often let the budgies fly around the sitting room and one of the budgies would land on a sleeping spaniel! That was in the 1960s so I guess things were different then?! :lol: Good luck, Anny.
P.S I think Stouts Mum ( on here) has parrots as well as a lovely lively doodle.

We have love birds, and Harley is not bothered by them at all. They make a lot of noise, aswell.

When at home (many years ago) my mother had budgies and Cat, if they can live together fairly comfortably I imagine a doodle will, obviously care was taken when homing two breeds that are like red rag to a bull but budgies and cat survived for many years together.
In more recent times Holly and a tame wild Robin have fun and games together, I have seen the Robin walk around a sleeping Holly and even peck her tail for a bit of warm nesting material. Robin can be quite a tease as well, when Robin comes to the door for food Holly shoots through to get him ( assuming Robin is a male as he has been in the garden for a couple of years now, I believe it is mostly the females that migrate) Robin then plays cat and mouse, luring Holly from the door so I can get to the outside cupboard where I keep the bird food. He then sits on the patio set out of reach and waits for dinner. So I think however quick doodles can be birds can fly out of reach. Just take care where birds are housed.

Love the photos of your Robin Kath :D ....we have a very tame one too but he's not brave enough to venture in.
We have Parrots and budgies at home with our dogs and have never had a problem but the bird cages are well out of reach of any Dood or cat that might decide to snack :wink:
