WELCOME TO ANGEL PAW PETS
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

Do Goldendoodles Shed?
Training your dog to understanding every word you say could be the most complicated part of your dog’s entire life. However, once you’ve opened your mind, you’ll find that a great deal of the time is simply being able to ‘read’ your dog’s intentions and body language.
‘Understanding’ your dog isn’t necessarily as difficult as you might imagine. Often, just like with people, a simple yes/no answer will suffice for him to receive the appropriate reward. In the case of training your dog, a simple no will suffice for him to receive the reward, followed by a more yes when he empowers you to do something else.
He once tried to get me to play a game with him. Instead of handing him a treat, I wrote a note telling him the game was over, and ignored him. He was shocked that he should get a treat for being refused the game, then shocked that I responded to his ‘please pet me’ with a yes. He was really very confused!
When he saw that I was ignoring him, again, he tried to get me to play the game. And again, I would write the note, thus ignoring him again. He was losing, and it was making me angry. Now, when I give him a little treat, he runs to the door in a hope that I will play. He is currently trying to decide whether I should try to stop him from getting the treat, or if instead, he should just do it on his own.
In other ways, too, his ‘reading’ of my body language has increased my anger. For example, when we were in the park a few weeks ago, when a puppy brought a ball back to the owners, my husband read the puppy what you should do when you bring a ball back to you.
The puppy understood my husband perfectly, but understood my anger. As he took the ball, he sniffed it and left it, knowing that it was okay. When he let it go, my husband read ‘Agusi’ and immediately responded in an angry voice to the pup, telling him that he was a bad, bad puppy and his owners were punishing him.
The puppy understood what he was being punished for, and there was no need to bite his owners. But he learned that he would be punished if he brought the ball back, even if he did it right. He learned that he would be scared if he did it wrong, and he also learned that he should leave things alone when he knows that his owners will react angrily.
The point of all this is that your dog is always reading your body language to learn not only what to do, but also what you’re feeling. Dogs can’t talk to us. They read our signs all the time.
Have you seen all the different ways that your dog is able to communicate? Watch your dog as you interact with him and notice how he is able to read your mood.
How Does Your Dog Understanding Your Emotions Work?
Dogs are able to understand emotions because they understand the tense, happy, and fearful emotions that we experience. They are able to sit next to you on the couch and know that he is going to get canned with a yummy treat, but he also knows that you are going to react with worry and maybe even a bit anger if there is a thunderstorm or you see lightning.
If you are scared, or sad, a dog will sense it whether you are holding your hair on end or not. If you are encourages, he will exhibit the same emotions. A dog wags his tail when he is happy and puts his nose to the ground when he is concentrating. His mouth is a muscle, and his lips are what allow him to smile, sadly or happily.
Dogs are very sensitive animals. They can be trained by using kindness and positive reinforcement. If you want to encourage desirable behaviour, but you are in a bad mood, do not shout, abuse, or strike your dog. You will only have a very disturbed dog if you have that kind of attitude.
Empathy and compassion are the key to success with your dog. He knows what you feel, because you spend every moment he is in your company and insight. When you are in a bad mood, he knows it, because you don’t spend a great deal of time in a bad mood. rumbling to be released from a terrible mood means to him that you are miserable both.
Education is the key to wealth. It is the key to your happiness. It is the key to your dog’s worth. Who knew our associations with our dogs were so powerful?
I have produced many “training you dog” videos and have helped thousands of people, but I had never personally trained my dog. Nor had I ever thought of training her to do anything other than come when called.
Well I finally did and I have never looked back.
Here are 6 reasons why you should take your dog to a structured obedience class:
1. Your dog will be more obedient.
It’s true. Dogs that go to school learn quickly. The best obedience training begins at 5 to 6 months with an emphasis on problem solving. Smart dogs are born with the ability to learn and follow directions. They also quickly gain the skills and go on to learn the obedience tricks. Dogs that haven’t been carefully groomed to sit, stay, heel, come, don’t bark and generally behave well are usually discovered to have severe social issues.
2. It is a bonding experience.
Dog obedience training requires you to address your dog’s fears. This can create a fearful dog or a dog that is super sensitive and can’t learn well. I have found that when you address these fears in a positive way it does not take long for the fear to go away. For example, if your dog is afraid of other dogs, when you go to a dog park and become friends with another dog owner and take your dog with you it all suddenly becomes clear to your dog that he doesn’t know who he is supposed to be afraid of. He no longer is afraid and is not on edge when meeting other dogs.
3. He can learn a wide variety of cues including hand signals.
A well socialized dog will respond to hand signals and facial expressions. If a dog is not exposed to this type of interaction from a young age its difficult to train them to respond to commands.
4. You’ve met a new friend, fell in love, been introduced to someone new.
All dogs need to be trained. It is not cruel to train your dog. Investing the time now will help ensure a long happy relationship.
5. Training will ensure the safety of your dog.
Despite what many may think, there are some good reasons to train your dog. A well trained dog will allow you to take him out in public places without him running around and being scaredy cats.
6. Training will save your dog’s life.
We all know that whenever we are chasing our tails there is usually some pretty good reason for it. We are probably not thinking about the danger we are creating by not training our dogs. Yep, you heard me. Training could save your dog’s life. You can’t take the chance of losing your dog at a traffic light as you can’t afford to lose your dog wandering into the road.
7. Training not only benefits the dog he is trained by but his master as well.
A well trained dog will be a happier, healthier and well-behaved dog. Yep, I’ve already read this one right? Getting your dog trained will provide you with the understanding, compassion and the patience you require to be a solid owner.
8. Your dog gets the opportunity to be a part of your family life.
Your dog’s natural urge to please his master will provide him with self-confidence. This confidence will show itself when your dog is performing exceptionally well in his training.
9. Since you’re already taking frequent walks you have more of an opportunity to form your dog’s behavior.
Pure training is at the heart of responsible dog ownership. Just about every other type of dog training involves a behavior modification program. The basic behavior modification commands such as sit, come and stay are usually learned within a week or two and relies on verbal cueing. Nearly all dogs are motivated by food and are willing to learn the cute little tricks you can teach them as well as more advanced behaviors.
10. Learning is an anxious, noisy and fantastic way to pass the time.
Walking calmly on the leash is one of the best ways to maximize your time together. Your dog is starved for social interaction so this is a prime time to be social. You both get to explore together and pass the time. Remember that learning is better when it is fun and with a positive mental attitude.
So there you have it.
The 10 reasons to take your dog to a doggy school. How does that feel? huh? Well I’d sure like that. I had a lot of fun with my dogs and I wouldn’t have any of the 10 problems I had. I mixed my training methods up as I went along and that is probably why the difference in my dog’s behavior is so extreme.
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.
