I am so excited to introduce you to Emmy. Emmy is a 9-month-old, 15kg Golden Doodle that was rescued from a puppy mill. At first Emmy was very shy, scared, and didn’t know the soft touch of pats and snuggles. Now, Emmy can’t get enough! She loves all the love and attention she can get from anyone. From snuggling with seniors, to running around with kids, Emmy loves it all!
Doodles are mixed breed dogs and therefore exhibit a spectrum of behaviours that are present in the breeds of their parents, however there are some behavioural characteristics that are very common that people should make note of. First, Doodles have a tendency to be very social dogs that do much better with their people around and engaged with them more than not. A Doodle that is left alone for long periods of time regularly can develop depression, anxiety, become obsessive about certain activities and these can result in other destructive behaviours. Doodles also have a tendency to be high energy dogs that need an abundance of mental and physical exercise, especially as they are growing into adulthood. Doodles requires regular brushing as their fur will easily mat up if not kept up. Regular trips to the groomer to keep her nicely trimmed will be required. There is quite a bit of upkeep with this coat type and it can become a huge mess quickly so the time and energy to keep up this type of coat will have to be taken into consideration as well. This is quite the undertaking and not something everyone wants to take on or has the time or desire to do.
Emmy would fit well into a lot of situations but I think would strive in a family environment. She still has lots of energy for walks, and playing with kids. But would also be up for snuggling on the couch watching a movie with you. She rides in the car well, usually falling asleep, she plays well with other dogs, and currently lives with a cat. I believe she would do well with any age of children. She currently doesn’t bite or nip while playing and she already knows to sit and act starving to convince the kids to give her food. The family will have to make sure kids (and adults) don’t give any human food so she learns it is never for her. She currently goes for at least 2 walks a day or is out all day exploring with me. Her new family will need to, at a minimum, be able to commit to at least two good long walks to keep her happy and healthy! She is getting better and better on the leash. She does pull slightly and needs consistent reminders to not pull. With continued training she will pull less and become the perfect walking partner. Emmy will do her business on walks/leash, but will need more then just the 2 walks if there is no fenced in yard for her.
You can’t tell from all that shaggy hair, but Emmy has no sight in her right eye. It is underdeveloped and right now, causes no pain but the new family will have to monitor it with their vet and be prepared for any vet work that may need to be done in the future. As for accommodating her for her vision loss, so far, I don’t see much that needs to be done. She gets around the house well and can still find crumbs and treats on the floor. She has been doing well going up and down stairs although at this point, I still watch her closely when she goes down stairs but she is getting the hang of it quickly.
Emmy is loving people so much she doesn’t like to be away from them for long. We are working at building her confidence when she is alone and building up the time spent in her create. Each day gets better but right now she still whines and can let out a bark now and again. Because of this, we think Emmy would be best in a detached house. The new family will have to work at this and be prepared to have someone available to take her for a mid day walk and bathroom break when left for the whole day.
Emmy may also wake you in the middle of the night. Not because she needs to go outside, as she can usually last a good 7-8 hours, but because she has dreams and makes little woofs in her sleep. I wonder what she is dreaming about? Chasing squirrels? Maybe just running around with her few friends.
House training is almost there. She understands she should go outside but has relied on her dog friend to tell the humans it’s time to go outside. If the new family doesn’t have a dog already, they will have to keep an eye on her at first and see those slight signs that Emmy needs to go out to continue the progression that she has had so far.
This Golden Doodle is very easy going and will fit into many situations. We expect Emmy to go through basic training at a minimum, but believe that advance levels of training would be beneficial to ensure that Emmy can quickly become the perfect pup for your home.
