“Words cannot describe how grateful we are for our little Brady boy.  He is the most amazing puppy!  He makes us laugh every single day with his silliness!  He enjoys car rides and going out to restaurants.  He loves hunting for pine cones and sticks and playing frisbee in the backyard.  Just like his mom Sugar, he’s learned how to lift his head high when running with the frisbee so he doesn’t trip.  lol  He is so smart but not bossy, playful but not hyper, energetic when it’s playtime but chill in general (he sleeps by my feet when he knows I have to work), he’s hesitant when encountering new sounds and experiences but brave and easily reassured by us, so trustful, and always affectionate.  All of these qualities result from the loving way you raised him and all the other lucky little awesome doodles.  He is 4 months old now (17 lbs), but helping him to assimilate into the routine of our family has been so easy from the very first day he came home.  Potty training was a snap!  He only had a few accidents in the house, and truly he always tried to tell us; we just missed his cue a couple times. 

I was anticipating some sleepless nights when we would finally be able to bring him home, but I was pleasantly shocked.  He cried for about ten minutes in the crate the first night but then slept all the way through until morning.  Every night since, he walks into his crate on his own when he sees us starting to get ready for bed and has never slept less than 7 hours straight.  During the day, there has only been a handful of times we have had to leave him.  Watching him on a camera, he cried for about 20 minutes the first couple times but now just lays down and settles in for a nap.  He’s just the best little boy!!  Our hearts are so full!!
He has almost completed his puppy training class and will be starting an agility class in May.  He jumps like a kangaroo, so I’m thinking he might love some agility work.  He had his first puppy trim, and he is so handsome.  
Can’t thank you enough for the great start you gave him and for the beautiful blessing you have given our family at a time when we really needed something furry to love!  He is so perfect!! “

“We’re doing great with Brady.  We could not be more in love with this little guy.    He is affectionate, playful, smart, happy, and makes us laugh every day.  He makes little progressions each day.  We are one week in, and he is doing great with crate training.  He goes in on his own when he knows we’re getting ready for bed, even before we’re ready to put him in there.  And as I’m typing this, he just went in there on his own to take a nap . . . that’s the first time on his own during the day!  woop woop!  He sleeps 7-8 hours at night unless Dave or I get up to go potty.  Then he wants to go out, too.  But he goes right back in and falls back asleep after one run-through of the ukelele version of Somewhere over the Rainbow. lol  (I don’t know why, but it soothes him immediately.)  Potty training is progressing fine, too.  He has started hitting the bells when he has to go — not every time, but he’s getting there.  He has had a couple accidents, but each time has been when I knew he had to go but couldn’t get him out right at that moment.  I’ve been using boiled chicken for training, as he doesn’t really go crazy over the training treats.  He cracks us up the way he slams his butt down and looks at us for chicken!!  We are starting to work on name recognition and coming when called. 

Like I mentioned to Tom, I feel like I know you both from all the videos and emails, like you’re an old friend!  It’s comforting to know we can reach out to you for support, so thank you!

Brady is a gorgeous red bi-color AussieDoodle with tons of white. What a beautiful little guy.  Congratulations to Dave, Mary Beth, and Brooke in Florida.
