Hi Everyone
My name is Jillian and I live in Ireland. I have an 8 year old Yorkie and just recently (July) we picked up Alfie our gorgeous labradoodle. It's been a long time since I've had a puppy. Toilet training has gone reasonably well and he has settled in well. He is a bundle of energy.

Our breeder recommended that we socialise him as much as possible in the first few months which we have done. I have a dog and my two sister s have dogs, a Yorkie and a lab. Poor Alfie is scared of dogs we meet on walks, from the tiny bichon, to the larger sheep dog. I don't really understand as we brought him to two agricultural shows, bbqs, friends houses etc and he's still a scardy cat. Any advice? I'm afraid the fear will turn to aggression and I hate seeing him like that.

I've booked in to puppy obedience classes in mid Sept so hopefully that will help. I've enjoyed reading everyone's stories and advice and look forward to the coming months!!!!!

I will post pics when I m able :D

How do you mean scared.

Lulu, sits down when she sees a dog she doesn't know coming towards her. Sometimes she will play with them and sometimes she shies away and jumps up at their owner! (still trying to sort that one). She is really submissive until she is sure of what the other dogs are like. She is okay with little dogs and not too okay with yappy ones.

All I would say is be careful of puppy play with larger dogs. They sometimes play too heavy and Lulu has been hurt twice. I know it wasn't any purpose and she was proably getting as good as she gave but since then she has been much more wary, even with labradoodles!

Would love to see photos and good luck with your new excellent choice of puppy

This is a pic my hubby took yest of my Yorkie Sandy and Alfie!! He's getting really big. Growing up very fast.

We bought Alfie in July from a breeder in Wexford. Very few breeders in Ireland. Where did you get your doodle from Martina.? Many breeders in the North?

Welcome from us too!

I wonder if taking him to places where there were loads of new experiences such as the shows was a little too much for a youngster. Perhaps he would prefer introducing him to one thing at a time, and maybe find some friendly dogs he can meet on their own. If he looks worried then get him to watch the dog from a distance first, and reward any step he takes towards it. He may just want to take things slowly at first :D

We got him from Rose O'Driscoll just outside enniscorty, he's 22 months.We also took him to puppy classes and to all sorts of busy places ,though he was never a timid pup.Puppy classes will help.

Ozzy's mum is Riley,I think she's just had another litter.the time has just flown by, no major problems, he had anal gland trouble but a change of food ( natures diet) sorted that.As promised he has a great temperament, just loves people especially kids,still pulls a bit on the lead but is improving.He plays with a husky all the time and meets other dogs off lead at our local forest, overall a great pup from a good breeder.
Are you from Wexford?
