  • Why is this puppy still available?

    Every year, I get asked the same question. Why is this puppy still available? Why didn't he/she get picked?

    There are many answers to why a puppy doesn't get picked right away. Some puppies don't fit into the requirements that each family has. e.g. colour, size, coat type. Some puppies are more outgoing than other's and some are more reserved.

    We've had puppies that were not seen at all because they didn't meet the requirements that the families on the waitlist had. Just because a puppy is still available doesn't mean that there's something wrong with them.

We understand that sometimes families need to extend their puppy's stay with us and we are happy to accommodate. Please note that there will be a $25 per day fee for extended stays. Our top priority is ensuring that your puppy is healthy, happy and ready to join your family. We offer personalized care and attention to each puppy, with the ultimate goal of helping them grow into well-adjusted and loving dogs.

Please remember that puppies/dogs are living beings and not toys! Never allow children to drag, squeeze, hit, kick, or lay on them.  I know this common sense and the majority of people would never allow this, but we have had issues in the past so I feel the need to bring attention to this.

No, a Goldendoodle may not be the best fit for someone with a busy schedule away from home all day and evening. Goldendoodles love being around their families and do not do well alone for extended periods of time. They thrive on companionship and interaction, so they may experience separation anxiety and exhibit destructive behaviors if left alone for long periods. If you have a busy schedule, it may be best to consider a different breed or explore options for doggy daycare or hiring a dog walker to ensure your Goldendoodle gets the attention and care they need.

 

No, a Goldendoodle may not be the best fit for you if you are gone all day for work and away most evenings for activities. Goldendoodles love being around their families and do not do well alone for long periods of time. They thrive on companionship and may experience separation anxiety if left alone frequently. If you have a busy schedule, it's important to consider a pet's need for attention and companionship before bringing a Goldendoodle into your home. If you are unable to dedicate sufficient time to be with a pet, it might be best to consider alternative pet options or make arrangements for someone to provide regular care and companionship for the dog during the day.

June 10th,

As we are getting close to the puppies go home dates, I thought I would go over a few things.

The puppies have been eating TLC puppy food. We recommend that the puppies stay on this food for at least a few months (preferably 5), so they don't get digestive issues.  Puppies are already under stress from transitioning to a new family and being away from their litter mates, and we want to prevent anymore stress to their system.

TLC can only be ordered online and it ships free to your door. (usually takes 2 business days to receive)

You will be receiving an email soon where you can place an order.  You get a $5.00 off coupon and a personalized tag when you order.  If you don't receive a link, you can get the offer here.

In your folder, I have stapled a small packet of FortiFlora probiotics powder. Add a small pinch of the powder to each meal.  Your folder includes:

puppy schedule, puppy go home instructions, puppy care handout, 30 day free insurance through Trupanion ( has to be activated within 24 hours of brining your puppy home) and a Eidap tag that is linked to your puppy's microchip.

What's included in your puppy packs.

A small bag puppy food, pumpkin puree, toy, comfort blanket, collar, training clicker, pine pellets (for potty training) and a TLC gift pack.

I'm not sure how much each puppy is eating as they all eat together.  I suggest putting 1 cup of food in their bowl in the morning.  I give them 20 minutes to eat or until they have had enough and walked away.  Give it to them for their lunch, then dinner etc.  If they have finished it all and are looking for more, then you'll need to increase it. If there is left overs after their last meal, you can decrease the amount you're giving them.

*Please note that as your puppy grows, you must increase the amount you feed.

Litter: The puppies are trained to go potty on pine pellets.  I have included a small bag in their puppy packs.  Put the pellets in your yard where you want him/her to go.  The pellets will dissolve once it gets wet and disappear into the ground.  

.

 * I will be sending home our puppy pack with the families (that live local) after puppy selection. 

Please read over  Our Visitor Policy 

*Reminder

The remaining balance is due right after puppy selection.  The gst is on the total price of the puppy. (deposit and remaining balance)

We except cash and e-transfers. (sorry, no cheques)

E-transfer payments can be made to doodlebear@live.ca

*Due to past issues, puppies do not leave our home if we have not received full payment.

June 4th

The puppies are now eating hard kibble and had some indoor playtime today due to the rain. However, they were able to enjoy some outdoor fun in the evening.

 

June 1st

The puppies had their first outdoor exposure today.  They had so much fun running and playing together!

The puppies are starting to use a litter box with pine pellets now.  This will help with the transition to potty training.  We send a small bag of the pellets home in every gift bag, to use in your yard to show the puppy where you want them to go.  Once wet, the pellets dissolve into shavings and will disappear into the ground.

May 29th

On the agenda for today, is the puppies' first bath! They will have at least 3 baths before they go to their new homes. Additionally, we started their crate exposure on Monday and they are all doing great!

 

May 26,

We started the puppies car exposure today.  Starting before the puppies are 6 weeks of age reduces the chance they will get motion sickness when they are older.

 

 

May 24th,

Puppies were introduced to a new play area for their exposure exercises, which gives them more room to run and play. After playing, they go back to their smaller pen to eat and sleep.  

 

 

May 23rd

 

We took new pictures of the puppies.  They're growing up so fast!

 

May 22nd

 

The puppies are doing great!  They turned 4 week on Sunday.  The time is going by so fast.  We are adding new things to their curriculum every day. So far, we have been desensitizing them to thunderstorm sounds, vacuum noises and music.  The sounds start off low and they get louder as they get older. They have been introduced to toys of different shapes and sizes, bubble wrap, blocks and small balls.  As they get older, the size of the items grow. 

The puppies are moved to a different pen during the day.  We start them off in a small pen that we expand as they get older. . They first start off with a place to sleep, a place to go potty and a place for them to eat and drink.  This is to show them that they need to keep their sleeping area, eating area and potty area separate.  Today we added an area for them to play in.

*Their litter theme is "Animal Crossing".

If you enlarge the pictures, it will tell you the names of  each puppy.

 

 

May 13th

 

The puppies were 3 weeks old yesterday!  We added potty area to their pen.  This will teach them that there is a spot to use to go "potty"  and a spot to sleep.  We will slowly make the potty area smaller as they get older.  We are started their sound desensitizing and we are exposing them to a new novelty item every day.  This helps build confidence in the puppies.

We started the puppies 10 step handling exercises today.  These daily exercises will help  puppies get used to all types of handling they will experience when they go to their new homes.

May 6th

It's hard to believe that the puppies were 2 weeks old yesterday!  They are all doing great.  Today was their last day of ens and esi.  They are starting to walk around and 4 puppies have their eyes opened!  

The theme for this litter is "Animal Crossing".

 

 

April 28th

Puppies are 1 week old today!

They had their 1st nail trim today.

 

April 24th

We're starting the puppies ENS and ESI training today.  ENS stands for early neurological stimulation and is an exercise that expose puppies to gentle stressors from day 3 - 16 to help with their development, resilience and improve heart health.  ESI stands for early scent introduction.  We expose the puppies to a different scent everyday, and take note of their reaction. ESI helps build nose awareness and confidence in the puppies

  

 

April 21st

Portia and River's puppies have arrived!   

For the first couple of days, we do minimal handling with the puppies. We want to give Portia time to bond with her puppies and we don't want to add any stress to mom. The only handling we do for the first 3 days is taking their weights to make sure they are all gaining weight.
