Congratulations. As one who is just a few weeks ahead of you as a new doodle owner can I suggest that you have just signed up to:-

The new greatest love of your life.
Early morning canine alarm calls - the first time your new doodle gives you a full night of sleep (or even close to) will be as big a milestone as when a human baby does the same.
Toys everywhere in your house, because whatever doodle was playing with 5 minutes ago will now be boring.
Increased use of Facebook, because all those Facebook 'friends', who you never see anyway, are just dying to see some more photos of your pride & joy - two days after the last lot you posted.
Absolute pride the first time you take him out in public.
Absolute terror the first few times you are out, because that rotty / staffy / lurcher, etc, looks hungry...
Total devotion - in both directions.

And all that will take place in your first six weeks or so of ownership!!

Have fun.

thank you,

Cant wait to take him for walks and meet up with other mad doodles :) always a bit worried about the hungry dogs out there, we lost our dog of 14 years 8 months ago, he was a big lad but always had that in the back of our minds when out for walks.

we have 2 kids so the house is mad and a mess already, looking forward to adding to the mess, the joys of kids and a puppy.

going out this weekend to buy some puppy stuff, no doubt spend a fortune but sure it be well worth it.

He's a handsome young fella! :D
Don't forget good supply of wine when you go out to buy the puppy stuff.
It's essential!!
Have fun :lol:

Hi Everyone, just a little update, got the little fella last week, its been a fun week with the crying all night on nights 1 & 2, glad to report thats stopped now phew :)

one quick question, how do I get him to stop chewing all things made of wood, my table and a few chairs have not been the same lol

toilet training is going well, most toilet breaks happen on the training pads, at 8.5 weeks he is 4kg so no idea what size he is going to be but looking forward to finding out :-) 2nd jags this week so can't wait to take him out for some fun filled walks soon after. I've attached a couple of pics.

porteri, as I said in an earlier post on this thread we are a few weeks ahead of you. I'll let others answer some of the behavioural points, but as regards to weight we collected Sooty when she was 9 weeks & 1 day. At 9 weeks 2 days we had her in the vets for first injections & weighing - she weighed 4.2 kilos. Earlier this evening Sooty was back at the vet for her latest worming & weighing (she is now 18 weeks & 2 days) & weighed in at 12.6 kilos. Like humans, I have no doubt that doodles grow at different rates, but you will see that Sooty is putting on approximately a kilo a week at the moment.

Hello! Wow, little Rusty is lovely... It's amazing how quickly your life changes once a wee puppy comes along. He's a lucky little chap to have two children of his very own!
We used a play pen for both our doods, so they couldn't get up to mischief when we weren't there to supervise them. I know that some people have used a citrus spray on their treasured wooden items, to protect them...
Remember to take lots of photos (and videos) because they grow up so quickly. :)

Rusty is gorgeous, making me broody. We used citronella to stop the chewing of tables, chairs and skirting boards. Get down on your hands and knees and rub it everywhere puppy can get to. I think it will put most dogs off = and reapply regularly.
