Tell us about Kip already! 😉
Kip is a super food-motivated puppy. If there are treats involved, Kip’s eyes are on you and he will be on his absolute best behavior. Kip. loves. food.
He also loves people. Every time someone walks by him, he gives them that puppy-dog stare in hopes of getting any sort of attention. He loves going to daycare to play with his furry friends. We’ll hand him to the daycare staff and he’ll literally run inside without looking back at us. Kip is also an adventure dog. At 6 months old, he’s been to Los Angeles, D.C., Monterey/Carmel, Stanislaus National Forest, and numerous beaches.
He does have his fair share of dislikes. Kip really dislikes the vacuum cleaner and actually once piddled in our apartment because he was so scared. We’re working with our trainer to help him feel more comfortable around it. He also dislikes getting his teeth brushed, ocean waves, the Swiffer Sweeper, Taste of the Wild kibble (haha), and a certain Bernedoodle in our building who obnoxiously barks at anything with 4 legs.
We love our little guy and we can’t imagine life without him! We look forward to sharing many more adventures together. Thank you AwesomeDoodle for bringing Kip into our life!
Kip is a tuxedo male aussiedoodle. Congratulations to Chris and Helen in California.
“These past 7 weeks have really flown by. Kip has gotten so much fluffier/bigger since the day we brought him home and he has the cutest little personality. Kip loves playing fetch on the beach, playing with his furry friends at puppy socials, relaxing at dog-friendly beer gardens, and getting belly rubs from everyone he meets. He dislikes baths, the ocean, the vacuum cleaner, and not being able to say hi to every single dog/person he meets. Since Kip was 10 weeks old, we’ve made sure to socialize him by bringing him to puppy socials, setting up play dates with our friends’ dogs, enrolling him in puppy classes, introducing him to human friends, and taking him EVERYWHERE we can. We recently brought him on a trip to D.C. and started bringing him to doggy daycare as well. Kip is a star student in his puppy classes. He nails almost everything on the first try (thanks Awesome Doodle for giving him a head start). He also figured out how to open the latch on his play pen so we had to figure out a workaround. Kip is doing really well with training. He knows sit, stay, down, come, fetch, crate, and leave it. We are still working on “drop it,” separation anxiety, and extreme recall, so we’re working with a professional dog trainer. We are very impressed with what Kip is capable of at 17 weeks old.
We love our rambunctious little Kip and are so glad he’s a part of our family. We look forward to taking him on many more trips and adventures.”
