In a puppy, the problem may seem less problematic and not worth addressing. As the puppy grows, though, the pawing can become a concern as bigger size and greater strength

Do Goldendoodles Shed?
Goldendoodles are smart, playful and curious creatures — and it’s these same qualities that can sometimes lead them into trouble. That is why training is important. Like all dogs, Goldendoodles require consistent training to understand and follow rules as they should, which is why their owners need to be patient and vigilent.
However, as long as you remain consistent, your efforts will ultimately pay off. Additionally, the younger they are when you start training, the better. It will be much easier because they will essentially be learning new habits as opposed to breaking old ones.
One of the things that some Goldendoodle owners might have to deal with is their dog stealing food. It can be quite hilarious the first few times, but it can also become a problem that needs correction. Good thing is you can help your dog drop this habit.
How To Stop Your Dog Stealing
Fed up with your dog stealing your shoes, your kid’s toys, food from the table, and anything else he can grab in his mouth or lay his paws on?
You are not alone. Let’s find out how to put a stop to your canine thief!
Coping with a dog that keeps stealing your things is a big problem faced by many puppy parents.
Which dogs are most likely to steal?
It varies of course, but most canine thieves are under two and a half years old. Mature dogs can’t usually be bothered. Read full post at The Happy Puppy Site…
Because Goldendoodles are playful, they will often want to go outside and play. They will let you know they want to get in or out by pawing at the door or even scratching it. It may not seem like a concern when they are young, but can be quite a problem as they get older and stronger.
The following post offers some advice on how to deal with this challenge:
Is Your Dog Scratching Up Your Doors? Teach Him to Ring the Bell Instead
Our dog paws at the door when he wants to go inside or outside. The door is all scratched up and the pawing is driving us crazy. Is it possible to teach him to stop scratching?
Pawing often begins in puppyhood; pups learn through their own experience or from watching other dogs that pawing the door is the key to getting out — or in. In a puppy, the problem may seem less problematic and not worth addressing. As the puppy grows, though, the pawing can become a concern as bigger size and greater strength mean increased capacity for damage and annoyance. Read full post at VetStreet…
When training your Goldendoodle, always remember your consistency plays a crucial role in your success. Offer praise and rewards every time there is improvement.
Bear in mind that you will need to invest a significant amount of time and energy to the process. It may sometimes seem like the results don’t match the effort, which is why it is crucial that you take a breather and acknowledge whatever little progress is made.
When training takes years, literal years, don’t forget the small victories
It’s easy to forget how much progress is made with incremental, teeny-tiny baby steps.
When you’re in the thick of it, especially when you’re dealing with a problem behavior instead of, like, a fun trick, you can’t even fathom that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, let alone see it.
Once you get there, having taken those itty-bitty steps for God-knows-how-long, it’s easy to forget every teensy step that got you there. Or maybe not forget. Maybe gloss over. I call it self preservation because if you could conceptualize just how much effort some behaviors take… well, it might discourage you from trying. Read full post at Oh My Dog…
Training your Goldendoodle is a continuous process, but one that gets easier as the months and years pass. Even so, you get to enjoy having a wonderful happy creature in your home, which makes all your effort worthwhile.
It is generally accepted that English Crème Goldendoodles are among the most gentle and relaxed of the Goldendoodle family. These dogs are exceptionally smart, gentle and healthy with a wonderful temperament.
The English Crème doodle derives its heritage from the European Golden Retriever lineage as opposed to the American Golden Retriever lines. There are some unique differences among the European Golden Retrievers and the American Golden Retrievers even though both kinds are under the umbrella of “full bred Golden Retriever.” Get to know the English Goldendoodle by discovering a few of its distinguishing characteristics listed below.
Trait differences. These differences have stemmed from the differences between the European or UKC standards in breeding vs. the AKC breeding standards. Essentially, when specializing in breeding for show, the breeder aims to breed parent dogs that will showcase the ultimately desired “look” that the show ring demands for each breed. The American English Crème Golden is considered to be a bit lankier than the European lines which are heavier set and carry slightly more weight.
The UKC ring additionally carries a broader color spectrum. This is where the gorgeous ultra-pale cream color originates from. Therefore, English Crème Goldendoodles are famous for their light cream to bright white colored coats. Their coats tend to be fuller and plusher in comparison to the American lines. English Crème’s additionally are shorter in stature and have larger bone structure; resulting in broader dogs. Their heads and muzzles are wider in comparison to their American “cousins.”
What is a “Teddy Bear” Goldendoodle? The very first Teddy Bear Goldendoodles were bred in Alabama. They have become exquisitely popular since their inception. Their name depicts the boxy shape of their “Teddy Bear” heads which is a result of breeding with the European lines.
Temperament. English Golden Retrievers have a reputation of being even mellower than their American counterparts. Therefore, the English Crème Doodle is considered to be one of the most laid back within the Goldendoodle family. They socialize easily and enjoy being around small kids. If you want a dog that will go with the flow and seamlessly fall into step alongside your family, the English Crème Goldendoodle is an excellent pick.
Amazing service dogs. These highly intelligent and loving dogs make ideal Assistant, Service, Companion and Therapy dogs. They are specifically wonderful for working with children. People of all ages with special needs or disabilities have been able to rely on these gentle spirits to help them with their daily tasks. Extremely well-tempered, they are resilient in times of stress and offer love and care for their humans.
Are these hypo-allergenic dogs? So many families have sadly had to relocate their pets due to unforeseen allergies. Many people want to have a dog but are worried about health and respiratory concerns such as asthma. Being able to welcome a non-shedding dog into your life can breed entire new possibilities of enjoying a four-legged companion once again. It is possible to have an awesome family dog!
Life expectancy. Life expectancy ranges from approximately 13 to 15 years.
Exercise requirements. These dogs thrive on a moderate amount of exercise. They want to be a part of the action. They make excellent companions for all of your family outings.
Goldendoodles are one of the most popular breeds for people with asthma, allergies and other respiratory concerns. Unfortunately, many dog lovers have had to relocate their dogs when allergies suddenly emerge within the family. Millions of dog lovers all over the world have sadly resigned themselves to never being able to have a pet dog due to their severe sensitivities. The Goldendoodle hybrid is an excellent option for those who have difficulty around canines.
How much do they shed? Even though these dogs are within the category of low to non-shedding, it will vary from dog to dog how much hair they actually lose. The shedding will be considered moderate in comparison to a Golden Retriever, as they have hair as opposed to fur.
Which Goldendoodle variety sheds the least? The F1b Goldendoodle is known for having the best non-shedding characteristics; particularly in comparison with an F1 Goldendoodle. This hybrid is up to 75% Poodle and therefore, has minimal shedding characteristics like its Poodle forebear.
Is there such thing as a dog that doesn’t shed? Many experts would argue that there is no such thing as a non-shedding dog. Humans for example lose up to 100 hairs a day from our scalp. Considering that fine hair covers many other places of our bodies, the actual numbers of hair we lose a day could be substantially more. It is common for new hair growth cycles to occur on a continuous basis. New, baby hair typically pushes out older hair as the natural cycle progresses.
Types of Goldendoodle coats. Goldendoodles come in a variety of shades and types of coats. Phantom Doodles are a unique blend of black and grey. Additional coat colors include:
- Sandy Light Brown
Straight Coat: Flat and straight that closely resembles a Golden Retriever.
Curly Coat: This coat tends to resemble a Poodle.
Wavy Coat: Obviously a mix between the straight and curly coats.
I don’t have allergies, why should I care? Let’s face it, anyone who has enjoyed the love of a dog in their life knows how tricky dog hair can be. It often seems to go unnoticed until the most inopportune time; suddenly making itself visible on your favorite coat as you are rushing out the door!
Dogs feel secure and calm when surrounded by their owner’s unique scent. This is why they often pick your favorite sweater or clothes to snuggle up on. Even the most well-trained dogs will eventually try to make their way onto the couch, your bed or your recliner when you are not looking or away from home. Perhaps you are a dog-friendly household that welcomes canine snuggles on the furniture. Either way, dog hair can be a nightmare to clean up at times.
Check the lineage. If the least amount of shedding is one of your top requirements for health reasons, be sure to speak directly with the breeder and review the family history. Unfortunately, some breeders may tell you what you want to hear in order to guarantee a quick sale.
Hopefully, if you get your pick of the litter, coat color and type are not your determining factors. There is nothing more entertaining and heartwarming than sitting on the floor amidst a litter of puppies and letting personality dictate who you are adopting. In a perfect world, the dog’s attitude and demeanor are the best determining factors as opposed to aesthetics.
There’s a huge difference between thinking of getting a dog and actually owning one. Raising a dog has its challenges, but with the right guidance you’ll be successful at it and have a happy, healthy pup.
Dogs are great companions who make our lives more pleasurable. Here’s how you can return the favor.
Food is Life
If there is one thing your dogs will love you for (and one thing they also need to survive), it’s food. It’s easy to ignore the nutritional needs of your pup, but this is one of their most important needs. Take into account the type of nutrients he needs, and be sure to include treats.
In order for your dog to grow up healthy and live a longer life, give them food that meets their nutritional needs! For example, the diet of a senior dog may differ from that of a puppy. Senior dogs may have problems with chewing and/or digestion, so it’s more recommended to give them a soft or wet diet. You won’t be giving the same food to every dog.
Don’t forget to give dogs the right amount of food, too! Overfeeding your dog or giving them too many treats could lead to obesity, which could consequently trigger more health problems such as heart disease, renal problems, and more. Weigh your options when it comes to dog food to avoid these kinds of illnesses — and if you don’t exactly know what foods are best for your dog, it’s a great idea to ask the opinion of your vet!

Give Your Dog a Name and Identity
Be sure to name your pup early. You may take time to get to know his personality and then name him aptly. Additionally, make sure he gets a tag so that you can always find him should he get lost.
Dog-Identification Tags are important. Nothing else matters when your dog is lost. Taking a few simple steps when she first comes home can save everyone heartache later. The right tag can get your dog back home where he belongs in a matter of hours. Here we discuss the best methods of providing identification for your dog. We will also discuss some identification options that you may not have heard of. Did you know that some dog owners tattoo their dogs with vital identification information? How about microchip implants? Regardless of the method you choose, we will also tell you how to register your dog’s identification. Read full post at How Stuff Works…
These tips are important when it comes to caring for your dog. That said, here’s what you should not do:
Do Not Label Your Dogs Negatively
This is one of the things you should not do. Do not call your dog a “bad dog.” Instead, reward him when he behaves in the right way. This is called positive reinforcement:
This is one of the worst things a dog guardian can do. Dogs who are labeled bad dogs or have so-called bad behaviors are usually dogs who haven’t had the time put in with training and exercise. If a dog exhibits unwanted behaviors (not bad behaviors), it’s because they haven’t been taught what it is that you do want.
When dogs express unwanted behaviors like jumping on people or furniture, mouthing you, barking, pulling on the leash, etc., they are expressing some kind of anxiety or frustration.
What can you do? Take the time to teach the wanted behaviors along with exercise, which will go a long way to setting a solid foundation of trust and mutual respect. Read full post at Dogster…
These are just some of the basics of caring for your new dog. Be sure to treat him like part of the family and you will enjoy your new life with your amazing companion.
