"Dallas is a sweatheart! At 7 months she is 23-25 lbs. She loves every human/dogs she meets and is so sweet. She’s packed with energy and while Dallas needs to burn a lot of energy she is a huge cuddle bug. Great with my niece and nephew and good on road trips! Best fur baby I could ever ask for!!!" - Allie
Rufus is a Boy, Red Merle w/ White & Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
Just wanted to give you all updated pictures of Rüfus (Stella x Gunner). He is 32 lbs and a bundle of joy who loves people, dogs, and food. He is also super gentle and playful. He has mastered a bunch of commands and loves to be with us, but can also handle being a little independent! Thank you all for your help along the way. - Neha Rufus is a Red Merle male AussieDoodle with shades of cinnamon on his face and a full white collar. He has white on his snout, legs, belly, and the tip of his tail. His markings are so beautiful! We think he will resemble Finley, only with darker colors when he gets older. Congrats to Neha and Tyler on this sweet boy!
Congrats to: Amanda and family from Middletown, CT on this Black Tri-Color F1 BerneDoodle puppy.

Congrats to: Connor and Lindsey in Virginia on this Black Tuxedo F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Duke loves his new home here in, VA! He loves training treats, dog puzzles, and playing with his ball. He also snuggles with his duck toy! He doesn’t like the stairs or the broom, but we have continued to practice with him and he has gotten used to both. Duke is able to find treats in the puzzle and is doing a great job with his training, showing off his smarts. He also knows that he is supposed to potty outside, and accidents inside are few nowadays! I don’t have a video, but duke is able to sit, stay, touch fingers with his nose, come when called, lay down, and will stay close on a walk and when tethered. He is going to join the adolescent training class in a few weeks, and we are so excited. We are loving spending time with him, and everyone loves to meet him. We are thankful to be a part of the awesome doodle family and wish you a merry Christmas and a happy holiday! Thanks for all your support raising our sweet boy!"
Congrats to: Kana and family on this Blue Merle w/ White & Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
Just wanted to send a quick note and update you on Rogue at 6 months; weight is just under 20 lbs. He’s been an awesome addition to our family and we love him so much! He loves playing soccer, he fetches both the ball and frisbee, loves playing chase with the kids to get his zoomies out, loves cuddling, hates the car (thankfully the throwing up has stopped) & most of all LOVES everyone and every dog he meets. He is best when he keeps to a schedule & gets plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. Every morning Rogue and I wake up, he won’t leave our room until he greets my husband good morning. After he goes to the bathroom and has his breakfast, he gnaws on his antler (most of the time while I’m holding it) while I have my morning coffee before he takes a morning snooze. It’s become one of my favorite times of the day & I notice he’s way more needy if we don’t get that time together in the morning. His first job of the day after his morning nap is to wake his sisters up! :) We’ve also figured out how he expresses himself when he’s overtired which has made a big difference in his behavior & our relationship with him. We continue to work hard on our walks... he is doing great but still loves lunging at cars, barking at dogs & people if he can’t greet them but he’s getting better...it also helps that I am getting better at getting his attention before the unwanted behavior so it’s been a growth process for both of us. :) behavior training has paid off immensely and we continue to do it every day. Yesterday we went on a 3 mile hike in Lake Tahoe and we let him off leash...he was amazing. He came when called every time and had the time of his life!! Thank you for all you guys do!! Rogue is such awesome addition to our family; we couldn’t imagine life without him. - All the best, Kana, JM, Anabelle, Sofia & Rogue
Congrats to: Dan and Amie in Kansas. on this Black Bi-Color F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Riggins is awesome! So far! Haha. We traveled 2 days in the car to get back to Wisconsin and he was a trooper. He didn't get car sick, which was my biggest concern since we had 2 days of travel and no way to avoid it. We set up a small station in the way back with a dog carrier, toys and pee pads covering the floor. A space for him to wander other than sitting in our laps in the back seat. He wandered into that carrier very easily. I put the yellow duck and a bully stick in there and he'd hang there for minutes at a time. We stopped frequently and he'd pee outside. He loved the hotel with space to run. He slept in the carrier next to our bed THE WHOLE NIGHT without a peep. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. He's acclimating to the house and we're confining him to the kitchen so far. I don't want to use the pee pads in the house. We've got the bell system up (we used that with our previous dog too). We've started working on "sit". He's very good already at looking me in the eye when I'm talking to him. It is bitter cold today here so he's only outside for a minute or two at a time, but he seems to like the snow. Overall a total success so far. Aaand... He slept the WHOLE NIGHT again last night. We have been lucky. "
Congrats to: Neil from New York, NY on this Phantom Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Franklin loves playing with anything that squeaks just as much as he loves burrowing himself into pillows on the couch. He’s interested in other dogs but is still a little shy on the playing front. He walks on a leash nice and is SO good with new people. He’s been on the subway, in stores, near fountains and sprinklers, and even taken the bus in the city. He is very interested in pools, and likes to sit on the first step, but has yet to swim. He’s good in the car as well. He goes into his crate, which is right next to my bed, at 10:30 every night and nuzzles to sleep. Franklin loves frozen green beans, ice cubes, frozen towels to chew on, and any food puzzle game. He loves bully sticks. He hates the vacuum and when I go in the shower. He likes to lay on the cold tile on the bathroom floors. Thanks for all of the communication and tip/advice over the past 9 weeks since I picked him up. I am so happy to have found such a great dog, and AwesomeDoodle made what could have been a VERY stressful experience very rewarding, and the best bonding experience for me and my new buddy."
Congrats to: Julie and Greg in New Jersey on this Blue Merle w/ White & Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Everything is going great so far. Blue is better than we ever could have imagined. He is the cutest and very smart. We are loving him so much."
Congrats to: Barbara and family from Ponte Vedra, FL on this Apricot Bi-Color F1b BerneDoodle puppy.
"We took him in for a check up and he’s perfectly healthy. The vet was also impressed with his amazing temperament and sweet nature. ❤️ Thank you for raising such a happy healthy awesome doodle!! 😊"
Congrats to: Allyson from Seattle, WA on this F1 SheepaDoodle puppy.
"I wanted to give a quick update on Bert the 8 month old Sheepadoodle (Anna Banana x Indy). Now that he's outgrown many of his puppy woes, he truly is awesome, very sweet and well mannered! We took him camping for the first time this weekend and he slept in the tent like a champ!"
Congrats to: Carly and Richard on this Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Maggie is a blue merle mini AussieDoodle with one blue and one brown eye! She has the cutest personality of any dog I’ve ever met. I swear there’s a little human behind those eyes. She loves cheese more than anything and the Soda Stream is her archenemy."
Congrats to: Michael and Susan from Michigan on this Black Phantom F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
Things are going great with Piper (Darla/Humphrey), she is now, at 17 weeks, pushing about 20 pounds, all snuggly, feisty and sweet! We have been fairly steady with training, has full knowledge of the standards, sit, come, down and all combinations, knows her name, has good recall, and the crazies are becoming a thing of the past. She loves fetch, we try to really run her every day, this helps with both appetite and lessening of mouthiness (still working on that). We are working with a trainer in weekly obedience classes, for both the extension training and socialization with other pups. To that, we do send her to puppy day care. They do a great job in letting dogs socialize and interact while providing certain activities for enjoyment. This also gives us a break and we plan family outings around these days. Piper is sleeping through the night in her crate, she has no issues with either crate (one in the kitchen, her main place), and we can crate her and leave, we have worked it, with lots of practice, to about an hour and a half now. She's a trooper. She also loves her bicycle carrier! We use it so our entire family can bike to town for ice cream, and I can bike her for a run at the local elementary school, etc. We try to be careful of the recommended 5 min of heavy exercise for every month of life rule. - Michael, Susie and Andy
Congrats to: Kristi and Family on this Phantom Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
Here is an update on Aria: Aria is a stunning blue merle with beautiful copper markings and the most gorgeous blue eyes. She is the daughter of Faith and Humphrey and is now 5 months old, weighing in at about 14 lbs. We love this little girl, she is independent, loving, smart, playful, energetic, and super cool. She loves to play fetch and has just started catching a ball in the air...next is a frisbee! She likes car rides, walks, treats, water (not sure we love that), snow, digging (definitely don’t love that) but having her family in sight is her favorite! She’s the greatest but there are times we have nicknamed her...”The Beast”!! We love her so and wouldn’t change a thing! Thanks AwesomeDoodle! - Kristi
Congrats to: Diane and family from Queen Creek, Arizona on this Black Phantom F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"After an 18 hr round trip🛫🛬 journey, Rae is home 😃💖 Can’t say enough about Diane and Morgan🙏🏼 Rae is confident, a snuggler, smart as heck and full of vim and vigor (lots of positive energy🤪) Couldn’t ask for for a sweeter puppy and a better experience! Makes the waiting well worth it!!" - Diane
Oreo is a Boy, Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Thank you for the links. Super useful information! He just went to the vet this morning for his 2nd round of shots, check up, stool analysis, etc. and everything looked great! We are monitoring him all day today to make sure he doesn't have any bad reactions to the vaccines. All the ladies LOVED him! We are all just getting used to one another, loving him being here with us, and look forward to watching him grow! He's been an angel during night time in his crate. He only cries when he needs to go out and pee!"
Congrats to: Ariel and Oliver on this Red Merle w/White F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for providing the cutest, most loving, and incredibly smart puppy I have ever met! Oliver is doing great. He has picked up pretty quickly where he is supposed to go to the bathroom and we have been working on our basic training (He really likes the "dont look at treats" move and dramatically looks away from my hand), and his mouthy-ness. We haven't quite had a full night of sleep, but I think we're getting there. He's a big hit with everyone he meets, and loves to walk right between my feet." He's excellent, an absolute joy. His favorite things include playing in any form of water (including his water bowl), tug of war, playing with his friends in the park, going on car rides, shoes and socks that get left on the floor for more than 5 seconds, and when i let him sleep in on the weekends and snuggle in bed. His dislikes: me leaving for work in the morning, or trying to clean his ears and eyes (thank goodness for the groomer!). But other than that, he's a doll and I cant imagine not having him!" Ariel and Oliver
Rosie: Red Tuxedo AussieDoodle Puppy
Rosie: Red Tuxedo AussieDoodle Puppy is a Girl, Red Tuxedo puppy.
"Rosie Doodle came into her new home just two weeks ago. I am so grateful for all the help, support, suggestions and love that came in the Rosie package. You helped me out so much to prepare and make this transition as easy as possible. From picking me up at the airport, to providing food and treats (I arrived with only an empty dog carrier and water bowl), to including her smelly blue towel that reminds her of home. She is simply an amazing pup. She rings the door bells to go outside, she sits for treats, she plays fetch and she has charmed our old, grouchy, part-chow rescue dog into being her new best friend. These are all things she learned from being raised by YOU. All this goodness arrived in the little fur ball that I picked up in KY two weeks ago!! She is also willful, crazy smart and requires a LOT of care and attention. I'm so lucky to have the enormous amount of time it takes to actually raise a responsible canine. It's not unlike having a newborn. We have spent the last two weeks getting a perfect score from the vet, being exposed to lots of new noises and objects (she's very sound sensitive, we play a lot of different types of music and sounds from youtube like you suggested - brilliant ). She's enrolled in a puppy class for socialization and we are slowly exploring the environment. Yesterday we spent time splashing in the pool and she didn't care at all, but a red mop sent her into a barking frenzy. I'm using lots of treats and trying to remember the clicking and keeping commands simple. It's not easy speaking "dog". I'll keep you updated with lots of pictures. The puppy cam and all the communication we had before picking up Rosie was a really huge plus in this process. You guys are amazing and your doodles are awesome as a result."
Benjie is a Boy, Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Everything is going great! Benjie is such a smart dog and is a magnet to everyone when we go on walks. Everyone just loves him. Thank you for all of the videos, very helpful!"
Congrats to: Robin and David in Ohio on this Phantom Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"We are having a wonderful time with Nolan....he is sweet and smart." "It has been busy around here as we spread the love to Nolan who is an absolute treat. He is so happy and he and Oscar are now play buddies."
Congrats to: Javier & Nilka on this Red Tri-Color F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Happy Holidays Awesome Doodle Family! Thank you for the greatest gift we had this year. We are truly grateful and enjoying every second with Atlas at home. Now, he is almost 7 months. He loves watching our neighbors kids getting off their school bus, is obsessed with frozen peanut butter (Kong brand), and is beyond a master in potty training along with other ~7 commands and counting!! He has done 5K race with us, loves attention and enjoys playing fetch with us. He has indeed being the greatest addition to our family and definitely want to express our gratitude." - Javier & Nilka Congrats to Javier and Nilka on this handsome boy.
Congrats to: Maria and family from West Newbury , MA on this Apricot Bi-Color F1b BerneDoodle puppy.
"Mattis is a gift! He is so calm, loving, and eager to please. We are so in love with this little guy. He has been with us for only four days and adjusted seamlessly - he slept 8 hours straight for the past two nights in his crate with his Snuggle Puppy 🥰 We are so grateful for all of the support from Awesome Doodle staff and especially Tammy Flachman for her work raising such a beautiful litter of BerneDoodles ❤️." - Maria
Congrats to: Sarah and family from New Smyrna Beach, FL on this Black Tri-Color F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Luna is a cuddle bug. She loves people more than anything. She loves her snacks more than her meals. She has no boundaries and does not respect ours. Luna changed our lives for the better."
Congrats to: Diana from Medford, MA on her new doodle boy! on this Black Phantom F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Just letting you know how well Franklin has been doing. He is in training and learning quickly. We are able to use commands and he responds during walks and at the park. He learned fetch after a couple weeks at home and he loves his bully sticks, chewing on ice cubes. He gets socialization with people and other dogs on our daily walks as we live in a city. He loves when people on the street give him attention and pets. He is very friendly with other dogs and loves playing at the park. On hikes he walks with us off-leash never straying away. Even passing other people and dogs he does not tend to run off. Dad walks him every day but mom is definitely his favorite. His weight was 14.6 pounds at 14 weeks vet visit. A few photos attached. There is no mystery as to who his father is. No Maury Povich paternity test needed :) Also, Tessa from 15th Aug Bernadoodle litter is his cousin and they play together every week." - Vincent & Diana
Congrats to: Jessica and Seth from GA on this Blue Merle w/ White & Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
It’s been almost a week since we've had Miss Stella so I thought I would let everyone know how she was doing. Firstly, her eating has much improved everyone was right she needed about 24 hours to feel comfortable enough to eat and drink normally but she’s been doing really well ever since. She got a perfect report from our vets office. They were smitten with her but she didn’t reciprocate the feeling she was very excited to go home. Potty training has been very interesting I’ve NEVER had a dog that was this smart! She’s only had 3 accidents and honestly I think that they surprised her as much as us. For a puppy her age I consider that to be a raging success! We started really using the potty bells yesterday because we had been working through some fear of walking out the door itself something about it just bothered her but with treats and encouragement I think she’s over it. She has used the potty bells on her own 3 or 4 times now with no real instructions and each time she has actually had to go. We are so amazed by how intelligent she is. My daughter taught her to fetch a ball the second day she was home. It was amazing how fast she understood what she was wanting her to do. I’m sure that either she had done it before or perhaps Willow’s love of fetch just comes naturally to her as well. We are still working on positive associations with the crate, grooming tools, and car rides but she’s making a lot of progress with small doses of exposure and lots of treats. She goes everywhere with us. I’m really hoping that with some restrictions being lifted that they will start offering training classes again soon. If that’s not an option I’ve found a doggy daycare locally that offers one on one sessions that recently reopened. They have great reviews so I’m hoping to start one of those once We get the vets approval. She is a wonderful puppy the whole family just adores her. She’s ruined us for all other dogs I’m afraid 🤣 - Jessica
Congrats to: Stephanie and family from Seattle, WA on this Black Tri-Color F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Cosmo is doing great! He has quickly learned to sit, up, stand, down, leave it and watch! We are amazed at how fast he is learning."
Congrats to: Frances and family from Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico on this Blue Merle w/ White & Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Bali is doing great! Crazy time has been minimum, we have a 11 yr old Westie and they love each other, she is obsessed with him LOL. She learns super quick, anything you teach she will learn the first time right away. She is now about 6.5lbs, still wondering how big will she get. She has truly brought tons of joy to our home, she is super loving and such a good girl! She just got her 3rd round of vaccines so hoping to start training classes soon."

Congrats to: Heather and family from Blue Mounds, WI on this F1 SheepaDoodle puppy.
"Boomer has become our do anything, go anywhere, no questions asked pup. He is stubborn and snuggly, energetic and lazy, all at the same time. He’s a moose of a dog. Sometimes I underestimate his pure strength. He’s incredibly athletic and 70lbs of pure muscle. He refuses to come inside and prefers we sit outside with him. He loves paddle boarding, camping and hiking in the summer and sitting in the snow, snowball fights and sledding (on his own sled) this winter. I think I went overboard on socializing him as a pup. He knows no boundaries and thinks everyone that walks by is his BFF. Even our UPS, Amazon and Fed-ex delivery guys know him by name. They all play with him when they come and leave treats on my packages if he’s not outside to greet them. It breaks my heart these are her only pups but so honored to call one my own. Thanks again Shannon!"
Congrats to: Ashlynn and Seth on this Red Merle w/ White & Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Arnie is doing great! He is just so adorable! He's growing like a weed though! He has the occasional accident but has been doing really well with potty training. He hasn't had an accident in his kennel since the first week or two we had him home, which is great! He is such a smart boy! It's crazy how fast he has learned phrases. He is already an expert at "Arnie come" (but you better have a treat when he gets there ha!). He will come over to you and sit down like a good boy! I've even tested him when he's playing in the yard with our other dog and he still comes. I can definitely tell he's teething. Especially just in the last couple days he's started to try to chew on anything he can get his mouth on. He has a few ropes and balls that he loves to chew on so I just redirect his biting to those and it works really well. We start his first puppy class on Saturday and I can't wait to see how he does! I really want to start working with him on loose leash walking because right now he does not like walking on a leash at all. The puppy class will be awesome for him though: burn some energy and make some more pup friends! Thanks again AD for such an amazing pup!" - Ashlynn
Congrats to: Luis and family from Marina, CA on this F1 SheepaDoodle puppy.
"This is Takeo checking in at 20 weeks! I've been busy doing all my favorite things in Monterey! I live next to the beach, so I'm always there and playing in the sand dunes! Good thing I'm a sheepdog and have all this fur to keep me warm. Phew, I get worn out almost every day. I don't care too much for fetch and I don't like getting shots, but boy oh boy do I love running! ...and sleeping belly-up on my back and eating chow and playing. But, my family says I'm still a puppy so they won't let me go on longer runs with them... yet. My favorite thing is to dig deep holes in the sand and then stick my whole face inside. It's so satisfying! I think everyone should try this. I like my morning training, too! I learn almost every training lesson the first time they teach it. I was even house trained in a week, they seemed really happy about that. I'm really good with all the basics - stay, no, come/idiwah, sit...etc (some of my commands are in Korean, wow!). I'm usually good with "katchi", and can walk and run for a long time next to their feet without pulling. This makes the bigger humanz very proud. I love crunchy leaves! ...and I really don't like "leave it" nope, no I don't! I meet all kinds of new friends on the beach trail. Lots of humanz like to greet me. Children and toddlers are my favorite. I really like birds and rabbits -- but they usually run away, I'm not sure why. I stay away from the Coyotes, though. I've never met a friend that looks like me, but today I met a Bernedoodle that came pretty close. Doc says I'm very healthy and on New Year's Day I weighed in at 25lbs! Well, gotta jump into the car with my family to pick the small humanz up from school now. Thank you AwesomeDoodle for all the tips and please tell Momma I'm having so much fun with my family :)"
Congrats to: Adam and Sheila in Washington. on this Blue Merle w/ Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"We received Otis this morning at the Portland airport with the Puppy Nanny. We couldn’t believe how handsome of a boy he is and super sweet! Our family couldn’t be happier with him!! He and our current dog, Zoë, have already been running and playing doggy tag together in the backyard. I haven’t heard my girls giggle that hard in a while! Too funny. I wanted to personally thank you guys for how much time and energy you guys put into each and every puppy, it shows! I also wanted to thank you for the items you guys sent us through Amazon. Otis loves his squeaky duck. We’ll be staying in touch and updating you guys with his transition here in WA."

Finley (Finn for short!)
Congrats to: Lori and family from Sea Bright, New Jersey on this Phantom Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"I just wanted to send along a note letting you know that we literally have the BEST dog on the planet!! No joke - I feel like we won the lottery with Finn. He’s beyond kind, playful, loving, smart. The perfect mix of everything!! Every time we go away (twice now), the whole trip is about how much we miss Finn!! Anyhow, thought this might brighten your Monday. You guys run a great business and I thought you should know!"
Congrats to: Chad and Bailey in Arizona on this Red Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Overall, Daisy is doing really well! I have already taught her several commands, such as sit, stay, and lay down! She is becoming well socialized, as I am able to bring her to work! We have also been to petsmart, friends' houses, and other stores that allow dogs. She gets along so well with every person and dog she meets."
Congrats to: Laura and Brad in California on this Apricot Bi-Color F1b AussieDoodle puppy.
Dawson, otherwise known as Dawson Doodle, has blossomed into a confident, devoted, loyal, easy going, and playful AussieDoodle. We are a family of 3, yet we all love him so much and he has his own, unique relationship with each of us. When we walk on trails or in town, frequent comments are "how is your puppy so well trained?" and "he is just soooo cute". The most common remark we get from our friends is that he is "the most calm and well mannered puppy they have known." Our family would agree. What has been the most exciting surprise for our family, is how he has acclimated seamlessly to our travel lifestyle! Dawson flew on 18 airplanes and has been to Mexico 3 times by the time he was 12 months. He sees the travel bag or suitcases and appears to get excited and even jumps into his carrier. We keep Dawson active and stimulated daily, which I think has helped tremendously. He sleeps throughout the night. We start the morning off with a 2 mile walk. Mid-day, he then gets play time with a toy or ball or another dog for about an hour. In the afternoons, he either swims in the river, lake, or ocean or we take him on jogs or hikes with us. Otherwise, he is curled up on his dog bed and snoozing or lounging right next to my son playing legos, or following us around the vineyard. Other interesting facts about Dawson Doodle are he is being trained as a therapy dog and comes to work with me 1 day a week in my psychological private practice. Sticking with consistent training has been the best reward for all of us. We use daily interactions with him as opportunity for training - and boy has it paid off! Around 11 months is when Dawson truly 100% of the time followed all the commands, including being able to walk with me off leash for over 2 miles. His blue eyes and steady eye contact melt our heart, his stealing my son's stuffed animals when he thinks we are not watching is hilarious, and his deep loyalty to us remains remarkable. -Laura
Congrats to: Adam and Stacy in Oklahoma on this Black Phantom F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Darcy is doing great! She is already telling us when she needs to go out to use the bathroom, and using the litter box at night. She has been interacting with several people and visiting many places, while loving the attention. We are having one challenge with her, but is expected with a puppy, which is biting fingers and toes. If there are any training tips/videos available they would be much appreciated. The tips you have provided thus far have been a success."
Moonakis is a Boy, Phantom Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
Moo is doing fantastic and is such a good-natured pup. It’s hard to walk him because he wants to say hi to everyone he passes. He finished his shots this weekend and we have been socializing him a lot more now that he has his full immunity. He is super sweet with strangers/kids and dogs of all sizes! It’s quite funny how sensitive he is. He is absolutely rambunctious with bigger and more playful dogs (his “Moo-cifer” alter ego), but becomes much calmer and gives space to older, smaller dogs. We are excited for him to start going to doggie day camp! We are still working on nailing his commands and loose leash walking. We live in a busy city and he isn’t afraid of any sights or sounds to a point that he likes to pull on his lead and sniffs EVERYTHING. We are doing a training intensive later this month and now that we can walk him more, hopefully this will improve. We love him so!!! Thank you to you and Tom! -- Melissa
Congrats to: Kim S and family on this Blue Merle w/ Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
Leo (Belle & Cash) turns three in a couple of weeks and continues to be the most amazing dog! He's smart, communicative, gentle, fun, and beautiful. A total gentleman off leash and on. He insists on giving a hug when he wakes up. We have been toying with the idea of getting a second dog. We basically don't plan to ever again get a dog other than an Awesome Doodle. - Kimberly
Congrats to: Lindsey and family from Alpharetta, GA on this Black Phantom F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"As we approach miss Koda’s 1st birthday, we wanted to give you an update on our beautiful pup and thank you for the experience! Koda is definitely the smartest dog I’ve ever met. She’s cuddly and sweet. She absolutely loves to be outside and loves walks/runs. She’s a very curious girl, even her normal walk/run routes provide ample opportunity for new adventures. She loves chasing birds and is hopeful one day she’ll find a way to get one. Koda loves her family and is so patient even with her two youngest human brothers who love to play chase with her. I honestly couldn’t have hoped for a better dog. She’s still on the smaller side, but she’s grown well over the past year. Despite looking smaller, she can jump incredible heights. She goes to doggy day care once a week and they all laugh at how she jumps over all the barrier walls to get where she wants to be. She even flips when she jumps sometimes, which amazes us. She was so easy to house train and so easy to love. Koda and the cat still aren’t best friends, though everyday Koda tries her best to win the cat over! We are so happy she is part of our family!"
Congrats to: Lisa and Stephen in New York on this Black Bi-Color F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"All is going quite fabulously here on the farm with Margie! She has adapted quite well to her new home...we, as a family have worked to learn who she is as a puppy, and help her to feel welcome and loved in her new home...She has had many outings...helping kids move back to college...helping me get my classroom set up for the new school year...and traveling to our camp! Potty training of the humans is going well...so she has not had many accidents...she absolutely hates her kennel, so we are working on positive reinforcement with treats, as she is quite food driven. We have kept up with practicing sit, stay, and come...all is going well on that front! She has puppy crazy time...puppy overtired time...puppy nipping time...so I guess she is quite normal...hahaha. We all love her personality and loving spirit! Thank you for all that you do!"
Congrats to: Lauren and Jason in Florida on this Black Tuxedo F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Hi! Ozzy has been doing amazing! We are amazed by how smart he is. We paid for a set of puppy group lessons and about half way through the trainer told us he has graduated and we should bring him to the adult group. He is her “star student”, but that’s not surprising! We work on training him in different environments, the vet tech was so impressed watching him “sit” and “wait” in the waiting area. Ozzy loves any one and any dog! He loves giving kisses and playing with all of his toys! His favorite is fetch. For more weeks than we should probably admit to, Ozzy has slept at the foot of our bed. He goes all night without any accidents!! His color is evolving every day, as of now he looks like he has a mask on and his inner ears are lined with silver! It’s adorable! Thank you for everything!"
Congrats to: Whitney and Fransisco in California on this Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"He's the chillest dog. I think socializing him as much as we did at the beginning made a HUGE difference. And now the biting and jumping and barking stopped he's a dream boat. So loving and sweet. He is a HIT everywhere we go. We get stopped at least 10 times a day no joke. It’s wild. He had his first doggy sleepover this weekend. He’s depressed she’s gone today. And he’s mastered the bells. I honestly Gave up on them and one day he rang it, I was so excited and now it’s every time he needs to go out. It has made my life so much easier."
Congrats to: Cheryl and family on this Red Merle w/ White & Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Blu is doing great and is a good boy! He has slept every night through the night except day of and day after his shots. He's a super happy puppy and goes everywhere with us. He loves Katerina, our 3 yr old granddaughter the best :) Kat's been in speech therapy for a few months because she was refusing to talk - despite her being very bright. Last week she made a 44% improvement and therapist asked..."did you guys get a dog?" Kat and I went for a walk down to the lake last night and she says, "Yama, I will take Blu - he loves me!" So she took his leash and he walked beside her. Was SO cute." Cheryl
Congrats to: Lázaro and family from Juncos, Puerto Rico on this Black Tri-Color F1 BerneDoodle puppy.
Oscar is behaving 70% to what our goal is, he stays when commanded for long periods of time, bitting is almost none, walking with leash is almost perfect, he understands down and reacts immediately as same as no, boundaries we have for him are about 80% followed, no fences. With food change we had no problem and he is SUPER with my two kids, tender and lovable. WE LOVE OSCAR !
Congrats to: Stephanie and her girls in Pennsylvania on this Phantom Blue Merle F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
Milo is doing great so far and we could not be happier! Milo has only had 2 accidents in the house and admittedly, both were our own fault for not getting to him in time when he started sniffing around for a spot! He’s eating well and loves his boiled chicken treats when it’s training time. He has almost mastered the “sit”. He cried the first night when we put him in his crate and woke up crying once that night too but since then he has slept through the night from about 10-6 and goes into his crate on his own! He loves to play with toys, run around outside and is really great with my 2 daughters (ages 8 and 9). We are practicing “acting like a tree” when he gets nippy but sometimes those little teeth hurt so they move onto the couch where he can’t get to them. He’s good about stopping when I ignore him or offer a toy in exchange. We are also doing a lot of socialization, meeting someone new every day and experiencing new noises, smells, etc. This weekend we are going to introduce the collar and work on crate training during the day. He is my little shadow and hasn’t really left my side other than bedtime and some naps in his crate but I do want to be able to get the mail and shower without him having a little meltdown when I put him in there and leave the room! Thank you for checking in. We LOVE Milo and everyone who meets him does an immediate “Awwww!! He’s sooo cute!!!” He could be a better coworker - he sleeps on the job quite a bit - but his cuteness makes up for it! - Stephanie
Congrats to: Terese and family from Trevor, WI on this F1b BerneDoodle puppy.
"Alfalfa is doing great, getting big, and has become the center of our family. He is socializing well....joined a puppy class, been to the groomer, and enjoys grandchildren’s visits. He sleeps 7-8 hours at night. Potty training is getting more consistent. He loves the run of the yard and picking up sticks. He is becoming more aware of birds and smells of other wildlife coming through the yard. Everyone is amazed at the softness of his coat. Thank you to Tammy and AwesomeDoodle for Alfie!!" - Terese
Congrats to: Harry and family from Montclair, NJ on this Blue Merle w/ White & Copper F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Linus is three months old today! We brought him home a month ago and it is like he has always been a part of our family. He is doing really well sleeping in his crate at night and knows ‘sit’ ‘stay’ and ‘down.’ We are also working on leash training with him. His alter ego “Puppy Piranha” is still pretty fierce but will hopefully calm down soon. He loves to abscond with towels and shoes every chance he gets. Rebecca did an amazing job raising him and we are so grateful for all of the articles and guidance along the way." - Jennifer
Maddie: April 2018 ADOTM
Congrats to: Lee and Eric in Texas on this Black Bi-Color F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"We adopted our previous two dogs from a local rescue group, so deciding to find a puppy from a breeder was a new experience for us. We spent a couple months comparing different doodle breeders before we finally put our names on the list for an Awesome Doodle puppy. But we’re so glad we did our homework, endured the wait, and found such an amazing group of people and dogs. From the time we selected Maddie as a one-week-old puppy to weekly photos and 24/7 Puppy Cam, picking her up in Dallas and meeting Natalie, and all the support from Courtney and Tom along the way – it’s been incredible. I also love keeping up with Maddie's litter mates and their owners on the Facebook page. And wow… Bow-wow-za! Maddie has rocked our world. We think she’s the cutest and smartest pup around! Sometimes, a little too smart for her own good." - Lee and Eric in Texas
Congrats to: Diane and John in Pennsylvania on this Black Phantom F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"All is well. She is eating great, learning new things, alert, sleeps great, getting along with my otheraussie aussie doodle Willa. They are separated most of the time but when tired and resting are calm and quiet together."
Congrats to: Angela and Robert in California on this Black Phantom F1 AussieDoodle puppy.
"Please let Marc and Michelle know how much we appreciate the care and love they gave Willow x Atticus puppies. Joey is happy, playful, secure. He is adjusting to his forever home so quickly, loves his peeps and is already comfortable with our Kitty. Sleeps about 6-7 hours at night, wakes up for a potty break and goes back to sleep for a couple more hours. I hope we can live up to the standards Marc and Michelle have set. I don't know what it is about that ducky, but it's Joey's favorite toy."
