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 [Click to Read More]

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 [Click to Read More]

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 [Click to Read More]

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 [Click to Read More]

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 [Click to Read More]

How to choose a breeder

How to choose a breeder  What determines if a breeder is “responsible” or “reputable?” The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club states that responsible breeders should raise their animals with the intent to produce healthy dogs, and to ensure that all animals are provided responsible homes and socialization.  
Would you consider a dog who lives in a “facility” as a socialized dog?  Would you consider a barn or kennel, the same thing as a home?  While the “dog house” may be humane, clean, and satisfactory, we don’t consider it a HOME. What is a puppy farm? When people hear [Click to Read More]

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 [Click to Read More]
