Regardless of the size… they’re all big enough for any size Doodle and a worthy investment.


dogfood_logo

I recommend you feed your Doodle a high quality dog food.

To avoid hip and joint issues in adulthood you don’t want them to grow too fast and puppy food has alot of extra calories and fat content in them. If you decide to feed a puppy food instead of an all life stages formula, choose a formula for their size. Either Large Breed Puppy Formula or the Small/Medium Breed Puppy Formula.

Once a puppy reaches about 80 percent of its adult size around the 8-12 month mark with my dogs, you can gradually take them off the puppy formula.

Dog food brand shopping

At one point I had several brands I was trying.. Obsessed much?

After years of research and testing out so many so-called premium dog food brands I always came up frustrated. I started out looking for the best but after all the highest rated dog foods left me feeling frustrated and disappointed..  I just wanted to find a halfway decent formula that my picky dogs would enjoy eating consistently. 

I finally tried Life’s Abundance (well, my dogs did) but not only did it check all MY boxes for healthy ingredients… but my dogs also LOVED to eat it and they flourished on it!

STELLA AND CHEWIES – MEAL TOPPERS

Another yummy meal topper is Stella and Chewy’s – Raw dehydrated chicken meal topper mixed in with their kibble and warm water.
Top your puppies meals with Whole pieces of Freeze Dried Chicken! They also sell dehydrated chicken patties.

Freeze Dried Dog Food Toppers make  kibble more appetizing and add extra nutrients however, they also add extra calories so, I don’t recommend toppers on a daily basis unless they’re not eating anything else or your reducing their kibble intake as well.  I’ll use toppers maybe once a wk as a special treat.

CRATES, BABY GATES AND PUPPY PENS

Midwest Dog Crates for Labradoodle and Aussiedoodle puppies

For our Aussiedoodle and Labradoodle Puppies I recommend the Midwest iCrate Single-Door Pet Crate or the Midwest Life Stages Double-Door Pet Crate

Using a dog crate as a house-training tool is JUST SMART…

We use cribs for our human babies.. We use crates for our fur babies! Simple as that.

✔  Not only do Dog Crates keep your puppy safe and help with potty training but crate training is helpful at training puppies to self soothe! Puppies need to LEARN being alone, seperated from their pack is not the end of the world. Pack behavior and natural instincts to stay close to their family  are still extremely STRONG in domesticated dogs. Help your puppy AVOID developing separation anxiety issues by crate training them young.
Seperation Anxiety is the number one reason puppies and adult dogs are relinquished too the pound or rehomed.

Most common age? 6-12 months which also just so happens to be the rebellious “adodolescent stage”. Adolescents passes just as quickly as it starts, so just hang in there!

You wouldn’t let your human toddler crawl all over the house while you slept or worked…please don’t let your PUPPY!

Once potty/crate training is completed you can leave the crate door open and belive it or not.. they’ll STILL use it as their safe place to hang out and sleep… if you’ve done it correctly.

READ MORE ABOUT CRATE TRAINING AND EXAMPLE CRATE TRAINING SCHEDULES!

Dreamydoodle puppies sharing their crate..door left wide open and they still love it

Crate Training Basics

Crate training your puppy….if done correctly and used as a temporary training tool then using a crate is not mean or abusive however, if used incorrectly or to the extreme it can be.. so PLEASE do your research on HOW TO CRATE TRAIN

The purpose of a crate is to use the canines natural instincts to keep where they sleep clean. Dogs are Den Animals by Nature.

The crate should be large enough for the puppy or dog to stand up without having to hunch, lie on his side with legs outstretched, and turn around with ease and no more or less… a if you give them too much space in their crate… your puppy will arrange his crate to have both a bedroom and a bathroom.

*puppies can go twice as long at night.. IF you have them on a good potty and feeding schedule.

Standard Size Aussiedoodle – Crate Sizes:

For Dreamydoodle Standard Aussiedoodles – I recommend buying the 36 inch size crate.

For Our Multigen Labradoodle Males I would go with the 42 inch size crate.

There are single door options and a double door options. The double door one has a door on the side and in the front. I just get the single door for the Puppy Size crates but for the adult size I like the option of the double door.

Plastic or Metal Dog Crates?

redstar_bullet1Plastic crates are mostly used for traveling.
redstar_bullet1Collapsible metal crates are more practical for crate training
because they can be sectioned off into appropriately-sized spaces (using the included metal divider) while your puppy grows, and are easier to store and MUCH easier to clean since they also have the removable plastic tray in the bottom. The plastic style crates are good too but really best used for travel. 

YOUR CRATE SETUP AND LOCATION

I like to put a blanket over the metal crates to give it more of a den like “feel” which puppies do seem to like when sleeping but I recommend removing the blanket during the day so they can feel more apart of whats going on in the household while crated .

Also make sure to keep you’re crate wherever you’re family socializes the most during the day and you can always move it to your room at night if that seems to help calm them the first couple nights of training, which is usually the longest it takes to get most puppies to relax and sleep without whining in the crate at night… IF YOU’RE CONSISTENT. Don’t Give Up!

I also recommend starting crate training during the day so you’re not up all night the first couple of days of training and during their last play and potty break for the day,wear them out good so they’re ready for sleep. Not hard to accomplish! 

Crate ready to go.. we put a toy and towel or baby blanket in the crate with your puppy. Nothing else is allowed.

Wanna Make Potty Training Even Easier?

Get a doggy door!! Never worry about letting your puppy out in time again. Which is total freedom for everyone involved! Puppies learn how to use doggy doors VERY quickly!!

Do You Work During the Day?

For people who work or for those people who can not take their new puppy out every 2-3 hours because they work, I do recommend they use a contained area with access to a litter box or potty area until they’re old enough to hold it for the full 8 hours in a crate.

You can use either baby gates or an x-pen with a crate inside.  I like to put a plastic tarp (as seen in this picture below) under the x-pen. You can either use a puppy potty box or a doggy lawn.. they have artificial and real grass options.

WHAT ABOUT PUPPY PADS? 

Young puppies tend to chew up the puppy pads which causes a huge mess and may also encourage them to continue to pee on absorbent like materials as adults..Not good, so the grass patches sure would be nice I assume if they’re cared for properly they could work for short periods of time..

Plastic Puppy X-Pens

I HAVE ONE OF THESE PLASTIC PENS AS WELL…I like to use these in the house when people come over to meet our puppies and the 4 panel one al is going to be WAY too small even for the mini puppies. 

I like the shorter 24 inch tall Iris plastic pen because I can easily put down food and scoop my puppies out and you can get the panel add on (which comes with 2 panels or you can add more if you like)

NOT INTO THE CRATE OR X-PEN IDEA?

YOU CAN TRY POOCHIE BELLS

A lot of our families use these Poochie Bells with GREAT success but almost all of them have ALSO used the bells along side Crate or X-pen training.

Teaching them how to notify you when they have to “go potty” is sometimes HALF the battle.

I don’t recommend using ONLY Poochie Bells in your potty training toolbox BUT if you’re dead set on NOT using any type of containment area or crate to Potty Train your puppy then you’re gonna need to be EXTRA consistent, constantly have eyes on your puppy,  know how to read their “gotta go” body language and follow a strict feeding and potty schedule and it also helps to be home all day in order to avoid potty accidents. Not impossible just much harder.

KEEPING YOUR PUPPY SAFE…

Please microchip your puppies and dogs. It is heartbreaking to lose a pet and this is another layer of safety precautions you need to put in place to make sure it doesn’t happen to you. First step is to have a name tag and collar on your dog at all times but collars can come off or also be taken off… but a microchip lasts a lifetime and can not be removed.You can get these done by a vet or if you’re comfortable giving a shot,  you can purchase these pre-loaded microchips as well.  Homeagain is the brand I use.

BRUSHING YOUR LABRADOODLE..

My #1 recommended grooming tool for Doodle owners is the…

The Chris Christensen Long Pin Slicker Brush

The Slicker Brush, steal Comb and a good Dematting tool are gonna be your “Doodles Coat Care Must Haves”…

Chris Christensen Long Pin Slicker Brush

This brush is considered the absolute best by every groomer and Doodle breeder/owner I’ve ever met (including me). The cost may deter you, especially when other slicker brushes are so much cheaper, but every part of this brush is designed to make grooming comfortable for your dog. I use this brush on ever Doodle and Poodle in my pack without worrying about brush burn, and it’s also a miracle dematting tool. 

The Chris Christensen Long Pin Slicker Brush

Buy it on Amazon!

Get a Slicker Brush
You’ll need a good slicker brush. A slicker is simply a brush that’s dense with very thin (but strong) bendable pins. Having hundreds of pins close together works at separating hairs, which demats your dog as you brush

Avoid Cheap Imitations
I know it’s tempting to try a cheap version, but it’s better in the long run to get a good brush. Why? Because the pins on cheap brushes will be stiff and sharp which hurts your dog. You’ll actually save money buying one good brush over a dozen cheaply made ones.

 

 

Andie Steel Grooming Comb

Andis Steel Grooming Comb

Andis Steel Grooming Comb – I call this my “seek and destroy” tool, I glide through their coat with the long pinned Andis comb to find any hidden mats. It’s perfect for finishing your dog and making sure they’re 100% clear and free of tangles.

MATS – The most common mistake made when grooming a Doodle or Poodle is to brush over the top but not get in underneath and close to the skin. It can be quite shocking to discover that although your dog looks beautiful ‘on top’ underneath there is a whole nest of matting you haven’t even noticed or you think isn’t that bad then you take them into the groomers for the first time and the groomer says…

Sorry, we had no choice but to shave them to the skin because they had mats“.

Yep, so Goodbye to that cute Teddy Bear look for at least the next 2 months. Groomer already spend a good 2-4 hours on a regular groom and they will refuse to comb out mats by hand…. believe me they don’t get paid enough because this is a huge job even when the matts are not that bad so give your groomer a break and help them out.

You HAVE to keep on top of it yourself by using a slicker brush and dematting comb (when necessary). You can comb out their ears, tails, hips, bodies and feet etc…once a week and save them from being shaved with these 2 SIMPLE and EASY TOOLS!

This is not an abused Doodle off the street… just a regular and I’m sure very loved Doodle who probably just wasn’t combed properly for the past few months. His owners probably either don’t own the proper tools or  couldn’t even tell he was matted this bad because they can hide it very well!!

Believe me I have blushed myself in a few groomers offices when I first started owning Doodles myself. SO EMBARRASSING!!!! AND I felt horrible for my dog! I just had no idea it got so bad so fast!

DOODLE EAR CARE IS SO IMPORTANT! 

Their Ears MUST to be kept clean and free of hair. The hair needs to be plucked out every month. It’s easy to do and only takes a few minutes. Get your puppy used to it from day one.. you don’t need to pluck the hair from day one but just get them used to the idea of you messing with their ears so when the time comes they will not be as concerned.

EAR CLEANER FOR DOODLES

The ear care cleaner I trust and use the most is the Epi-Otic Ear Cleanser.  It was first recommended to me by my Veterinarian and it has been part of my grooming toolbox ever since.

Bonve Pet – Dog Nail Clippers / Trimmer with Safety Guard

 

These kind of dog nail clippers are great because the guard stops you from clipping the nails too short and having a bloody and painful experience for your puppy or dog. If you cut too short and clip the nail’s “quick” (the flesh area under the root of the nail) it will bleed. You can use the guard on these to make it MUCH easier and just snip the tip-off the nail. When you got a wiggley puppy these are super helpful.

Small Nail Clippers for Puppies and Toy/Mini Doodles

Small Dog Nail Clipper

When it comes downs to it, all dogs need their nails trimmed on a regular basis. You don’t want them to be too long or too short, and a healthy nails will slightly touch the ground as your dog walks. The nails of active dogs can gradually trim from walking on pavement, but dogs who aren’t as active should receive trimmings more frequently.

Dewormer – Keeping Your Puppy Parasite Free

I highly recommend deworming your dogs with Safe-guard every 3-6 months, more often for dogs who are more active outdoors in public spaces. Safe-Guard (Fenbendazole) is an over the counter medication that comes in powdered granula packets that you sprinkle on their food 3 days in a row.  Safe-guard overs a wide range of intestinal worms and also treats Giardia which is extremely common in puppies/dogs.
Dogs can contract parasites from just sniffing contaminated grass and surfaces while visiting high dog traffic areas like the park, groomers, vet clinics, dog parks, beaches and drinking out of rain puddles.

I don’t recommend using just Nemex (pyrantel pamoate) because it only covers hookworms.

I also recommend the following supplements:

I don’t believe in over supplementing my dogs however I use Nuvet Plus as a daily vitamin for coat and skin health. I use salmon oil and I use a probiotic when their having intestinal issues or if one of my dogs is taking a course of antibiotics. I personally like Fortiflora or Vetri Probiotic BD – these can also be used as a daily supplement.

Keeping Them Healthy:

Vetri Probiotics BD

Vetri Probiotic BD

  • Supports G. I. tract in dogs whose digestive and bowel functions are affected by food sensitivities or infiltration of unwanted bacteria
  • Designed to soothe the digestive tract lining
  • Provides ingredients that support proper immune function and microbial balance

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

The recommended dose is pretty easy; just give a teaspoon of coconut oil per 10 pounds of dog, or you can give a table spoon per 30 pounds. Start with about 1/4 the recommended dosage and build up to the recommended level over 3-4 weeks, as sometimes flu-like symptoms can appear if you go to fast.”

Coconut oil can help aid pets’ digestion, improve their coats, help prevent infection and more. READ MORE AT PETMD

Virgin coconut oil is the richest natural source of Lauric Acid, a medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA). MCFA is responsible for all of its health benefits. Use as a food supplement or applied topically.

Salmon Oil for Skin and Coat Health

Grizzly Salmon Oil

Grizzly Salmon Oil helps relieve dry itchy skin and promotes bright and lustrous coat!

Omega-3 fatty acids are used to increase energy level, improve the immune system, reduce the risk of blood clots, lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels and slow the growth of cancer cells.

Just add a pump of this on their food once a day for a shiny and healthy coat and skin not to mention all the other health benefits.

Fortiflora/Probiotics for Dogs

Fortiflora Probiotic for DogsFortiflora CANINE. If you have a dog or puppy suffering from diarrhea or poor intestinal health, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Purina’s Fortiflora for help.  This is what my vet prescribes me. It can be purchased over the counter.

FortiFlora restores the natural balance to your dog’s intestines with its unique microencapsulated live microorganisms.

Contains a guaranteed amount of live active cultures. Contains high levels of antioxidant Vitamins A, E, and C. Promotes a healthy immune system.
