Health Testing

What is DNA (Genetic) testing? Have you ever seen a dog that is blind? In most cases, they are a victim of PRCD, which could have been prevented. A DNA test is a test that looks for certain diseases (like PRCD, and others) in your dog’s DNA. There are a few diseases that can affect AussieDoodles, and of both mom and dad could be carriers of that disease, or worse yet, affected by it, meaning they will suffer from it. What would happen if a puppy was affected? Lets say for example, a puppy is affected by PRCD. There is a very high chance this puppy will go blind between the ages of 3 and 7 years old. How do you prevent a puppy from being affected? The only way to ensure puppies cannot be affected by a disease like PRCD, is to test both mom and dad. Mom and…

Puppy Pick Process

The AwesomeDoodle Pick List. How does it work? When you sign up to get your new AussieDoodle Puppy, you’ll go on our waiting list. Remember AwesomeDoodle never has “homeless” puppies. What kind of puppy do you want? What size and color do you want? Do you want a puppy from a certain mama? You don’t need to answer these questions right away. But if you have “must have” criteria, let us know. For example, if you tell us you ONLY want a dog under 25lbs, we won’t contact with any puppies above that range. When will you get to pick a puppy? When we have a new litter, we take photos and a video of each puppy when they are deemed healthy (usually at 1 week old). When we get to your name on the list, we will offer you ANY puppies available. You’re welcome to pick a puppy, or…

Kentucky Humane Society

AwesomeDoodle is doing their part to help with unplanned pregnancies in the Louisville, KY Area. We are often asked, “Should I RESCUE a dog” or get a dog from a reputable breeder? There are pros and cons to either option. When you get a dog from the pound, sometimes you get a great dog, sometimes you get a dog with behavior problems. But let’s face it, if you get a dog from the pound and take it home and raise it like a normal dog, you didn’t RESCUE it. You raised it, just like you would any dog. On the other hand, if you get a dog with behavior problems, that no one else wants, and you spend hundreds of hours rehabilitating and behavior training it, THEN one can say, they RESCUED a dog. When one gets a dog from the shelter, they’re NOT helping reduce the “unwanted dog” population…

Puppy Crate Training

When the puppies are 6 weeks old, they do not want to be contained in the whelping box any longer!  This is when we start to introduce them to their crates.  By doing this now, they will already be familiar with a crate, and will be more comfortable when they get to their new homes. The first step is to open up the crate, and put a puppy blanket inside. If puppy doesn’t show any interest in going into the crate, that’s ok.  We don’t force them into it.  We want every new experience to be fun and safe for your new puppy.  If the puppies don’t go in, I throw a yummy treat inside to see if they go for it.  As soon as I opened the second crate, Roscoe decided he would claim it as his own den. Mini AussieDoodle Crate Training, Roscoe, the Mini black and white…

AussieDoodle Potty Training

  At just 3-4 weeks, we start teaching puppies not to pee where they play, sleep, or eat. When your new Aussie Doodle puppy goes home with you, he will already have a jump start on his potty training.  At just 2-3 weeks old, we start training them not to eliminate where they hang out.  At 4 weeks, they start to “get it” and by the time they are 7 weeks old, they almost always pee away from where they play. The first goal of house training your dog, is to make the dog understand, “We don’t eliminate where we play.”  A dog that is constantly walking around in it’s own pee, will get comfortable with this, and begin to sleep right on top of where they pee. YUCK! How do we do it? 1. Puppies pee almost instantly when they wake up.  At 3 & 1/2 – 4 weeks…

AussieDoodle Training

At just 5-6 weeks, we start training puppies to wait until it is their turn for a treat.   Before your new Awesome Doodle goes home with you, it will already have a head start on the most important training lessons it will learn.  In weeks 6-8, each puppy gets one on one training sessions. 1.  Sit.  Puppies start learning both the hand signal, and the command. 2.  NOT jumping.  Our puppies learn very quickly, that jumping on humans won’t get them the treats they want. 3.  Not pawing or biting or barking.  No treats for puppies until all 4 feet are on the floor, and no teeth are touching hands. 4.  Building attention and eye contact.  Puppies learn to look at a human’s eyes, instead of the hand holding the treat. Here’s an example of a one-on-one puppy training session.  This was only Ace’s second lesson. Smarty pants.
