First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on your decision to become a new puppy parent - it is without any doubt one of the most exciting, most rewarding and most worthwhile experiences we know! As you are likely already looking forward to the day when you will bring your dog home, please recognize right now is the very best time to begin preparing… YES - even prior to picking up your puppy! In fact, one of the more common questions we receive from our prospective pet parents is, "How do we best prepare for and successfully train our new puppy?" This isn't a big surprise as everyone wants a calm, well-mannered and better-behaved family pet. More often than not however, they don't know what to do or how to do it. To help with this, and in a sincere effort to provide our families with options, we have teamed up with BAXTER & Bella who offers an online step-by-step program with all of the training help you will need to become suitably educated, sufficiently prepared and successfully experienced in all things dog ownership!

Carriers, Kennels & Playpens:  The Small Petmate kennel is best for potty training but will have to be upsized when your puppy outgrows the kennel if you choose to stay with a kennel. 

A small table top fan pointed toward the kennel door while your puppy is sleeping will help to keep them cool while also soothing them to sleep with the white noise.

Potty Training:

  • Puppy potty pads recommended for travel only.  The least expensive pads can be purchased at Costco.  
  • We use Orchard Grass pellets for our litter boxes, but several owners have used Fresh Patch when they live in apartments and need to utilize a balcony.  The Potty bells are awesome for teaching your dog to ring a bell to alert you that they need to go outside.

Grooming & Bath Time :   Groomers recommend line brushing to prevent mats. 

Watch this video for more info: Line Brushing Tutorial for Doodles

  •  Straight Coat: They require minimal brushing. You will get mild shedding with this coat type also.
  • Wavy Coat: A wavy coat will require weekly brushing and/or combing and is often low shedding and some don’t shed at all which is a favored trait of Goldendoodles.
  • Curly Coat: The Goldendoodle grooming needs of a curly coat dog are very demanding. You need to commit to brushing on a daily basis (5 times per day) to prevent matting unlike a wavy coat where weekly is OK.
