Introducing Cinza who started her new life with us this weekend. She's almost 6 months and a mixture of black brown with a bit of a silver frosting and super cute. She has settled in very well and is extremely loving.

Sorry about the bad quality photos, mobile not as good as the camera (sadly malfunctioning)

I had to recheck the photos, her legs do look very long lol that explains her gangliness. I have no idea how big she will get

Cinza pronounced Sinza (Portuguese for Ash)

One question. How much exercise for a 6 month old, does the 5 min per month apply. She has barely moved since her walk this morning :o
Thanks

Hi & Welcome :D Cinza is beautiful, Wurly too had long legs at that age, they do grow into them :wink: , so when they’re older they don’t look so gangly, but sometimes they do just grow really tall :wink: , it’s going to be fun finding out. :D

Hi, Cinza looks beautiful. Cannot help on the exercise front, Lottie is a miniature and the rules are not quite as strict. Lottie runs (and has done since she was 6 months old) for about an hour and a half each morning!

Howdy to you too Cinza! :D You can see she's a lovely girl even with the camera phone.

Have a look on doodle times for some good exercise advice, and advice on lots of other things too. :) Click on the link below and look at the Education and Welfare section:

Hello Cinza,
Love the pics!
Exercise-wise, it's possible that your dog is just not very fit - we've fostered a few dogs for Labradoodle Trust, and a couple of them were a bit slow to start with because they weren't used to much (or in one case, any!) exercise, so you may want to ramp up the exercise level a bit gently. Personally, I think if your dog is fit and healthy, the exercise recommendations are a bit restrictive. I understand that they are designed not to play the hips up if your dog is prone to hip displasia (dysplasia? Whatever!), but for dogs with ok joints it seems to leave an awful lot of excess energy.

Hi and welcome to you and Cinza... who is absolutely gorgeous! :D :D

Our two doodles are medium miniatures and we followed the 5 min rule for lead walks but they also had a lot of
off lead exercise - on grass - and you know when they're tired because they lie down and rest! Having said that though, do you know what Cinza's recall is like? You could put her on a long training line at the park, fields etc. and see how it goes. :D

Good luck :lol: :lol:

Hi

Thanks for all your welcomes.

I didnt think to check the LT website, will do so. I think I might have overdone it yesterday, she was running around the park like a mad one yesterday morning, but then slept all afternoon til dinner.

As for her recall, we are changing her name so it's difficult to gauge, but good signs however I know already we will need to work a bit to pay less attention to other dogs!!

Aah she's cute, she reminds me of stout when he was younger. We stuck to the 5 min exercise til he was one. He used to get a bit more on grass. Stout gets more worn out running around with other dogs than he does walking.

Oh she's a lovely girl, Dougal is just coming up to 8 months, he's always liked to run around a lot but did get sleepy afterwards. He gets a minimum of two to three walks a day, on of them a longer one, he has lots of energy and becomes a monkey if he doesn't get rid of that energy.
