Growing up fast.

Hi all, A few pics of Lucca who is now 7 months. I can't believe how the time has flown by. We have been to two sw meets so far and she loved them. I thought all Doodles loved water but Lucca will not go in past her knees! I have tried to use a sprinkler to cool her down but she just hides. She will...

Re: I was really shocked by this!

What a load of rubbish. Firstly judging by the use of pounds it is an American report. 1 crisp is like a half a burger to a cat and one piece of cheese the same to a dog? Come on Doodle owners, stop reading pseudo scientific reports and enjoy your dog. It is the same with that stupid 5 minutes per m...

Re: Trays of puppy food.

Thanks for the replies. She is a standard from a small standard mum and a mini dad. Her Mum is tall and slender and my vet thinks Lucca will be the same. She does get treats but mostly kibble with a few tasty ones thrown in. The vet thinks she is looking fine and she seems healthy enough. Those amou...

Trays of puppy food.

How many trays should I feed my 17 week old, Lucca? I read on Wainrights that she should have between 3.5 and 5.5 per day! This can't be right. That would cost nearly as much as I spend on my own food! Natures diet said 3 trays per day or am I reading it wrong? At the moment she is on Barking heads ...

Re: How much food?

30 grammes a day? Barking heads recommend 330 grammes a day for a large breed puppy of 17 weeks. I give mine a bit less, say 90 grammes a feed as with any more she gets loose stools.

Re: Runny stools.

Thanks for all the advice. Yes I did change her on to barking heads slowly. Her poo has now firmed up a bit at first but then turns runny. When I picked her poo up yesterday it was very soft and again tonight. She is very lively in herself so I don't think there is too much wrong with her. I am begi...

Runny stools.

My 14 week old doodle, Lucca, has been having trouble with her works. When we got her all was fine. She had been weened onto Chappie which she loved. I gradually changed her diet to James Wellbeloved puppy food as my vet told me the Chappie would not aid her growth. I noticed that her stools started...

Re: Doodle size.

Just been to the vet for Luccas first jab. Two points. Firstly I am not giving her enough food but she seems fine so it's an increase in rations for her. Secondly, she weighs 5kg at nearly 10 weeks and the vet reckons she will be tall and slender, just like her mum who is very similar. Not like her ...

Re: Doodle size.

Thanks for the tips. Lucca's mum is a small standard so hopefully she will take after that. She is going to the vet tomorrow so I may get a clue. i don't think I realised how big doodles could get! We live in a terraced house in Bristol. However she turns out she is very laid back except when the ca...

Doodle size.

I expect this has been asked countless times before but I can't seem to find a satisfactory answer to an open ended quuestion. How big will my doodle be? She is an F2 from an F1 standard bitch and an F1 Miniature male. Her Mum is 2 and a half years old and not too tall and very slim. I didn't see th...

Re: New puppy

This puppy lark is full time isn't it? I don't know how I am ever going to get anything done. I know. I know it's only for the first few months. Lucca has been very well behaved two nights now with no mess in her crate or in the house and we only got her on Sunday. I think the lady I got her from ha...

Re: Here's Crumpet!

What a beauty. Mine is arriving on Sunday. I notice he is wearing a collar. I went to get one today but I was completely overwhelmed by the choice. Any suggestions? The girl in the shop said for me to bring my dog in for a fitting/
