Re: night time routines / experience

I can't really comment, as Dex has slept with us since he was a pup, as did our previous GR, so obvs, we like our dog snugging with us at night! We bought a crate ready for him to come home because we took advice from the forum that dogs have to be crated. Dex hated it, we hated it, so it didn't las...

Re: Dolly ate my glasses !! Oh no.

Yes, Doodleted, I love reading about these expensive Dood munching experiences!! Especially when I've only had a slight chewing of a Sky remote, and a token play with my reading glasses. I've spent the last year expecting Dex to do something naughty( after our GD Tasha ( hell on wheels) , but he doe...

Re: Dolly ate my glasses !! Oh no.

Oh dear, Sandra- that was an expensive Dood treat! ( maybe covered by your house insurance?). Glad you're recovering from your op. Take it easy, and give Dolly big hugs from Dex and I. X

Re: Thank you for the advice

Sorry, Laura, didn't read to the end of your post. I only use an ipad , and have never been able to post photos, but there's a thread somewhere on the forum with a step by step guide for laptops. X

Re: newbie advice pls

Welcome to the forum. As Bid mentioned in her earlier post, Doods are many and varied. Ours is 16 months now, and hasn't grown for the past couple of months so I think he's done now ( thank goodness as he's 26in). He has the typical poodle frame that Bid referred to- long legs, slight of frame, and ...

Re: Hello!

Hi, Maria and welcome. Coco is gorgeous , and looks full of fun! Our Dex is a medium choccy Auz Dood too, only he decided that we needed more of him to love, so he's obligingly grown to 26in at shoulder- our Doods are so clever!! :lol: Look forward to seeing Coco growing up. X

Re: Appearances can be deceptive.......

It must be tricky at the moment, Annie, but Yoshi's still a wee guy with loads to learn. I found that Dex was slower to be house trained with poos than pees, and I think a few other people on here have had the same experience. Is there a certain time or times that he does it, so you could take him o...

Re: Paddy doesn't like his dog walker

Agree with OH. Trust your Dood!! Dex loves everyone, outdoors and in! If he had no reaction at all, or , worse, had an adverse reaction, I'd be seriously worried about that person!!

Re: Recall

Liz, I love that phrase' a jackpot of treats' - it sounds like it could cure most issues with those of us who have Doods with Lab stomachs!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: x
