Lockdown !!

Here we go again in lockdown, luckily the dog groomer is open this time, last lockdown Holly looked like an unsheared sheep, mind you so did I. We are so lucky to have a dog during this time and the space to walk her, meeting many other dog walkers for a quick natter adds a bit of joy to the day. I ...

Re: Biting legs and ankles

Hi, sorry you are having a painful but all too well known phase. It is a phase that will pass, you seem to be doing all the right things to try and discourage these painful nips. I used “time out” with Holly when she took to play nipping, I never had a crate for her so she was put into the kitchen w...

Re: Hello! I'm Hugo

Hello Hugo and welcome You look a bundle of joy, and what a lovely honeycombe colour you are. As Anna said it is quiet on the forum now but there is a huge amount of good info on the site, it really helped me in the early years. Doodles can be challenging but a more loving, fun, intelligent breed wo...

Re: harness

Hi evasdad I tried many different harnesses and leads finally from Amazon I tried the “Premier pet safe easy walk harness” that night I took a different 5 month old dog out for a walk, The difference was instant, what the harness comfortably does is turns the dog towards you when it pulls on the lea...

Re: Photos

Holly is nearly 8 and still a puppy at heart, looking rather miserable here. Must have just heard I found a groomer who is actually open for business, I am a little worried as Holly has always had the same groomer since puppyhood but her coat is so thick she gets uncomfortable in the hot weather. Wi...

Re: Ambrose has crossed the bridge

Oh Linny
So sad to hear Ambrose has gone, it must have been a terrible shock. It is the last kind action we can do to let them pass out of pain.
Remember all the fun times he gave you all.
Kind Regards
Kathie and Holly

Re: A new dog does help when you think nothing will

How lovely to hear from you and Maisie, I think most of us know the heartbreak of losing a member of the family which is exactly what our dogs become. I still miss our Golden Retriever many years on but having her with us for 15 years took some getting over. Holly our 1/2 Aussie doodle now 6 has del...

Nothing like a bit of sunshine, Holly’s limp is a lot better only after a long curled up sleep does she do a few limps then it frees up, wish my body did the same.
