Re: Aussie doodle coat

Sorry Liz, I didn't get a reply notification? I had previously taken Daisy for puppy groom so have now had her trimmed right back. She looks great :). I am hoping that what is left is all grown up coat as no shedding since.

Aussie doodle coat

My 8 month old Aussie has a wavy fleece coat and has never moulted until recently... I am thinking she is losing her puppy coat. Does anyone know anything about the process? How long it usually takes, best way to deal with it. She doesn't tend to matt at the moment so combs quite easily and there is...

Maybe something is bothering him. Maybe a vet check is worthwhile.

Re: three meals down to two?

Daisy is down to 2 meals at 4 months. I can't remember if it was the vet or dog trainer who said it would be fine. She seems ok with it, although does get quite a lot of training treats in between.

How big?

Just wondering how big my mini Aussie doodle pup will be when fully grown. At nearly 16 weeks she is weighing in at about 5kg. Any thoughts on final weight/size?

Re: Garden risks!

Thanks for all the advice. I have had some success with "leave" but unfortunately not when her teeth are sinking into my ankles or when trying to pick things up outside :(. She moves like lightning too. I will get some more exciting treats in to help.

teething

I had heard that frozen carrot was good for puppies to gnaw on for teething so just gave Daisy a small frozen Carrott. She demolished it in minutes! Is that OK? I was a bit concerned about it being so cold and didn't expect her to chomp through it so easily. Would I also need to reduce her food allo...

Re: Greedy or hungry?

No its by current weight and age! The food is manufactured by the breeder so specific to Doodles. I might give a bit more tomorrow, she is definitely not overweight.

Re: Greedy or hungry?

She was going frantic barking and scraping at the utility door (where her food is), while I cooked dinner. Her poo is formed but can be a bit soft in the middle when picked up (sorry!). She was 1.2kg when I picked her up last week and will get her checked at the vets on Thursday. She should grow to ...

Greedy or hungry?

How do I know if I am feeding enough. Daisy seems starving when I feed her and whimpers for more. The guidelines on the pack are a wide range and as she is small I go fairly low on the scale. She doesn't look thin and has plenty of energy and plenty comes out the other end. Is there an easy way to k...

Re: Garden risks!

Thanks bid, will try that. I have been just using her kibble for treats as she is only little and I didn't want to upset her tummy. Any suggestions on a good healthy treat?
