"Bodie Cooper is amazing! I can't even begin to tell you how great he is and how much we all love him. Crate training was a breeze, actually there was no crate training. He was fine with it from the beginning. We haven't actually used the big downstairs one but his toys are in there and he often runs in there to lay down for a awhile or get a toy. I think he would nap in there but he prefers the floor by the A/C vent. I guess it might be a different story once we start leaving him in there more. So far I have only left him in it once while he was napping but he wasn't upset when he awoke and I wasn't in there. Potty training is over I think! He had a couple of accidents in the beginning but they were our fault. Now every time I take him out he goes right away and then runs over to me for his congratulatory pats. Whenever we are done outside playing or for potty trips he just follows me back inside. Sometimes tho, he will pee and not follow me and in those cases it is always that he wants to stay out and poop. I am on a good schedule of taking him out regularly but if I am late he will just whimper and circle and out we go. We have taken him out in the car or had company every day. Yesterday he had a 3 hour play date with my sister's dogs, 2 westies and a schnauzer. He played so well with them. He had a few issues with whining in the car but that is almost over. He had his first vet visit and all was well, he had the booster shot and they started him on flea and tick prevention and heartguard. He learns so fast that it is mind boggling! He sits regularly and we are working on other things. The first day he wouldn't get 10 yards away from me but even now, 5 days later he stays pretty close. We go outside and he stays within a certain perimeter of me at all times. I just call and he comes running. It is so great to not need a leash but I assume that will change as he gets braver. My three grandchildren (11,7,5) were here for his first three days and they all bonded immediately. He loved playing with them. Bodie is my dream dog and I couldn't be happier!" - Donna

"Leia is amazing! She is the best puppy we have ever had. The first night she was already telling us when it was time to go potty! She is already fetching, sitting and is stuck to me like glue. She goes to work with me almost everyday at a marina and she has her spot in my office she returns to when she comes back inside. She is ok with napping there and hanging out while I am out in the marina. She is happy with the other people in the office and cautiously greets new people but then they get the whole body wag of approval. At home she has shown her abilities by herding our chickens. She plays well with her Multipoo sister who has been tolerating the puppy energy. She has a pretty good routine and usually gets up once at night for a potty run. We are up in the morning at 5 to go outside then chew a bullystick while I get ready. We walk down to the chicken coop and around our property in the morning then the evening. She is a picky eater, but when her bowl of chunks (they become super chunks when we get some fresh chicken or fish added) are eventually consumed at her leisure. She plays well with the kids and is very gentle with our 14 month old. Everyday is a new adventure for her! The biggest challenge was leaving her for a few hours at home, she had a little separation anxiety, but she did well and was very happy to see us when we returned." Leia is a blue merle female AussieDoodle. She is absolutely adorable and we can't wait to see her vibrant colors as she grows. Congratulations to Andrea and Mick in Maryland.

"Just wanted to let you know Leo is doing so awesome. He is the sweetest, smartest puppy. But I’m sure you hear that about EVERY one of your puppies!! He did unbelievably amazing on the flight home (I was a little nervous bc I’ve never flown w a pet before and wasn’t sure how he’d do!) But then we still had a 5 hour drive! He was a little more subdued the next two days but he also went to the vet, two different dog stores, through a car wash and met LOTS of people. And that was just the first day! We then went up to my parent’s farm and had lots more new experiences and new people. (But only in a very small space outside so he wouldn’t catch anything bad). The third day he woke up and the real puppy came out! He loves to play hard but then he crashes! He has slept in his kennel by one of our beds every night so far with NO crying!! Maybe one trip out to pee. House training is going really well. Accidents are our fault but very few. He already is quite consistent at coming when called and sitting quietly at your feet. He knows sit, down (sometimes forgets and we have to gesture a time or two but then remembers the down command), come and is doing really well at get in your house (kennel). He was chasing a ball but just tonight he started playing fetch with a rubber chicken toy and brings it back to be thrown again!! And this is all at 9.5 weeks and we’ve only had him since midnight on Friday!! Truly amazing. We haven’t started the leash training quite yet—planning on it over the next couple days. He has so much fun just playing and exploring in the yard. He just does somersaults and flips and is hysterical. He knows “inside” and “outside” and can even manage the regular size steps up my deck (about 6) with a little bit of a running start. Very smart, agile and frisky little guy. We just adore him and can’t wait for all the future holds with him. We have a private training lesson set up for Friday just to get him started before he the real puppy classes. Thanks again for letting us be Leo’s family and all the support. It’s just been such a great experience! " Leo is a dark blue merle AussieDoodle male. He has white tips on his paws and a cute white patch on his chest too. He is stunning. He has black eyeliner and bronze tones which will both come out more as he grows. Congrats to Carolyn & family in Iowa!
"I’m in love with Kona!!! He is just so beautiful and very sweet! He was so very good during the 6 hour car ride. Just wanted to snuggle. We stopped a few times during which he went potty! He ate his dinner and has been exploring all evening. I don’t think he’s going to like his crate to sleep in tonight but we will start it nevertheless. I have read all of the articles in this email and feel confident to start the training. And please thank the Awesome Doodle family for the gifts that were sent and giving me a truly “awesome puppy"!!!! You are all wonderful!" Kona is a dark blue merle AussieDoodle male. He has an adorable white patch on his chest and chin. We are so excited to see how vibrant his colors are as he grows. Congratulations to Ellyn in New Jersey.
"We are all doing very well. Kyra is adjusting great! I believe due to my husbands experience with raising many dogs we are in a good routine and thats why things are going so well. That & Kyra is just a wonderful puppy :) Bill gets up with her at 4:15 (which is when he is up for work) lets her out, then puts her back in her kennel to sleep until 5:45 which is when the sun is coming up.. & I get up with her. She eats her meals around the same time every day (mostly), we go to sleep around the same time every night (except wknd.... a lil later). She is just awesome! Both neighbors on each side give her treats (at our approval of course, & adore her) Everyone who meets her loves her, of course!" Kyra is a black tuxedo AussieDoodle. Her fur is so silky and soft. She has a little white on her paws and chin. So cute!! She will look like Moose when she grows up. Congrats to Heather & Bill in Colorado.
"Luna did a great job flying home yesterday. She was a bit “crazy” when Sally dropped her off after the car ride, missing her litter mates and “birth mom." After about 1/2 an hour we played for a while and stayed awake until our 4:40 (3 hour flight). She was so good! Only whimpered a little and there were two doodle parents next to meet. One a middle seat mate and another across the aisle! She slept in her crate next to the bed all night and only whimpered every couple of hours but quieted and went back to sleep when I put my hand down. She’s sitting like a champ thanks to Sally! We do realize it’s us that needs training and are looking forward to our future with her." Luna is a tuxedo female AussieDoodle . She has white on her chin, chest and all four paws. So adorable! We think she will look a lot like Sky when she grows up. Congratulations to Charissa and Price in Texas.

He was all wiggles and greetings and a big hit with everyone." Iggy is a blue merle AussieDoodle male pup, with vibrant copper markings on his face, chest and legs. He will be STUNNING. We think he'll look a lot like Izzy when he grows up. Congratulations to Laura and Steven in West Virginia.
"We had a very easy 8 hour trip home today. We picked him up at 7:30. He settled right down in my lap with his piece of blanky from the whelping box and the yellow duck you sent and never made a peep. We stopped three times and I took him over to an unused area. He didn't like the wet grass so I took him to a spot with dry mulch and he peed immediately Repeat 2 more times. He is now cuddled up on my old dog's bed with duck and blanky, just happy not to be moving I think. I hand fed him some of his food and he took it perfectly. He pooped in the place we want him to go after eating. All is well now we have to wear him out for sleep tonight. Hope the crate at night goes well. He is so dear! Thanks for all the wonderful help." Casey is a dark blue merle male AussieDoodle. His colors are so rich, and he's even got little white tips on his paws and a white patch on his chest. We are so excited to see his vibrant colors as he grows! Congrats to Jean & Don in Michigan.

"Congratulations to Natalie. We picked Sugar up from the airport this morning. We took her outside at the airport to a very secluded area and she immediately peed. We drove home, about 45 minutes and put her in her area. She rang her bells by the door, it could have been by accident, we took her outside and she pooped. We came back in and she played in her area with Robbie, rang the bell intentionally, went outside and pooped again. Robbie worked with her a little to get her in her kennel, which she eventually did. After awhile Robbie said “bed” and she walked right in, laid down, and chewed on her Bully Stick. Just amazing!!!" Sugar is a red tuxedo AussieDoodle. We love the red puppies! Super cute with a little white on her chest and two white back feet. Congrats to Tom and Robbie

"Crate training is going great and Lexi is sleeping through the night. We have introduced the collar and leash and that is going well. We have also introduced the doggy door with some good success. Potty training is still a work in progress, but it is getting better. She has travelled very well in the the RV. We are home now and have been introduced to the cat (the cat barely tolerates her and keeps her distance). All in all we are making great progress and Lexi has really bonded with us. She is very sweet. Also, thanks for the training videos, we refer to them often." Lexi is a little tuxedo girl AussieDoodle, with two back white feet and white on her chest.

"He is doing great! The whole family is in awe of him. He has never cried at night from day one. He goes right in the crate as long as he can see me and right to sleep. The bells on the door are working well, he rang yesterday probably 75% of the time. We had company last night and they couldn't believe it. Remi loves everyone he meets. He was sitting and making eye contact by his third day with us. I use that when I need crazy puppy to stop. Lol I could go on all day.... I still can't believe he's ours!" Gloria Remi is the famous red merle puppy who has defeated all odds! Congrats to Gloria and her husband, who were so lucky to get this handsome guy.
