Re: 14 week old - reassurance needed!

Sounds like it's going really well. She's gorgeous! You are right to be cautious about groomers. There are good and bad like any trade. I was very fussy and as I could not find a recommended one I had a lady come to the house. When she stopped I searched high and low for somewhere where she is not s...

Re: 14 week old - reassurance needed!

What I was trying to say was you have a very typical doodle puppy. Don't think, like I did (being totally flabbergasted at how bonkers and bitey mine was) that you've some how picked a delinquent, devil pup. Tess of the Baskervilles we called her! It's obvious you are experienced with dogs as all th...

Re: 14 week old - reassurance needed!

Absolutely typical doodle pup to the letter. In fact I'd say she's perfect. She read the rule book and she's performing as a only a doodle pup does. Terrible recall. Tick Thinks every dog and human, especially ones that look like ants in the distance would love to be doodled and bounced to an inch o...

Re: Barking

Don't ignore her- she's trying to tell you something's happening, that's her job, she carries on because she thinks you're not listening- like you have a choice! :shock: I heard it's the poodle side which is a highly sensitive alert dog- it's definately true of my Tess. Aknowledge her and show her y...

Re: Early rising

People have posted about this before and in several cases found that if they left the crate open then the barking or whining stopped and they waited longer in the morning or pootled about until a later time quite happily. It was a long time ago but you may find the posts if you look back. It think i...

My pen for Tess was probably 80-90cm and she's a standard. Xx

Re: Emily still nipping

I agree with Bid. I had a trainer come and when she arrived, as Tess was trying to greet her, as any pup or friendly dog would, she took out a washing up bottle of water and soaked her, before I had been asked if I agreed to it. She insisted it would work but it just made Tess really angry and upset...

Re: Face pawing

Anne- Could you use one of those leads or bandanas that say I need space or shy or I bite bu##er off?
Seems a shame to make him wear his heart on his sleeve but might be the quickest way to get it across. Xx

Edit- just had a quick look on eBay and there are lots- nervous, Give me space, Shy etc...

Re: Time Out

Tess has a Wolfy bed. They are fab. Have a look on the gallery on their website and you will see her. Xx
Beware of getting a nice bed for a new pup as they just chew them up! Xx

Re: Time Out

I bought a crate because a lot of information out there seems to say it's the new normal to crate your pup but when it came to shutting her in. I couldn't do it. So I bought a pen and had both but never shut the door of the crate other than to mop the floor. I think if you are crating you build up t...

Re: Emily still nipping

Ditto all the above. Anne and Dee are right, doodles do turn into lovely dogs but they are not born with manners and are not biddable as pups- they can be little horrors and its the hard work you're doing now which will get you that lovely adult dog. It is tough but WILL be worth it. They are not fo...

Re: How accurate are puppy size predictors?

That's probably why it works for Tess Liz. She's f2 but standard size.
