Thank you. I just wanted to clarify that dogs and cats are only an "irritant" to my allergies, which is a runny nose or itchy eyes, not how some allergies can be so severe for people - I am still able to have both.
Thank you. Anything worthwhile is never easy. Our doodle is crazy energetic, sheds a lot, needs lots of attention, costs $150 every six weeks for grooming...and had to be professionally trained at home so he can become the amazing sweet guy that he is today. So none of the doodle myths were true for him. With the right professional training and love and patience and time any doodle can adjust and be happy with us.
Thank you for taking the time to comment on my page. Yes, we are aware that not all doodles are hypoallergenic. We also know that all dogs shed somewhat. Also, dogs pick up hair and pollen and other stuff that can irritate allergies. There is no perfect world for the allergy sufferer and dogs!
We have been managing this issue for over 30 years. We are lucky that my wife's allergies are fairly mild, but she does have problems when we spend a long time with our daughter's hound or our son's Rottweiler.
Originally, we bought poodles from breeders, but last time we branched out to a Cockapoo - even though we knew the risk. She sheds a bit, but has not been a big problem. We thought that a doodle, even one that sheds, would probably be about the same.
Obviously, we could go to a breeder, but would love to rescue a dog. Our daughter is affiliated with rescues in MA and a student at the Academy for Dog Trainers. Through her, we've learned to a love rescue dogs. We are working with 3 or 4 in our area also. It's a long process but one that will be worth the effort!
I understand your concern. I love all three of the breeds, have spent time with them, and truly enjoy their personalities. Please keep my application active. I really feel that a doodle would be a wonderful addition to our family.
Hi. Thanks for your concern. My allergy to animals is not very strong. We have had cats and dogs over the years. I just sneeze a bit and have to wash my hands after cuddles in order to keep my hands away from my eyes. If I played with a doodle I would soon know. We dogsit for a family dog who sheds like crazy and is a mixed breed. I have no problem with him. I'd just like to meet and pet a dog to check it out.
i filled out an application yesterday for a golden doodle and i'm not quite sure why your email is directed towards knowing the difference. i am very much interested in your dogs and i hope i didn't advertantly omit any info you required. please let me know if i did.
Thanks for the helpful information. I am aware of the variances of non-shedding mixed breed dogs, but you were able to add some interesting and beneficial information. I will be going over that more carefully tonight.
Concerning having a dog in my own name with vet records, our last three dogs were registered with the vet in my name, and they covered a span of nearly 30 years. This should put your minds to rest on that count. All my dogs were well taken care of, and I enjoyed training them.
We look forward to seeing some possible new additions to our family!
The breed mix is not a big issue, if you happen to get one that is on the small side. I do plan to have the dog go to obedience class, but it is somewhat important that she walks well on a lead. Thank you for your information and time
I understand that no dog is allergy free. My daughter with allergies dies not live with me , has her own doodle and we are interested in a dog that might shed less than our Golden did. Shedding is not a deal breaker. We have had 2 Golden’s and have adapted.
I am interested in adopting a doodle even it not allegy free. I have a question about your note. You must have had a dog as an adult with a veterninary. Does that mean I have to had a dog in the past? I have cat and I can provide a veterninary records that I have take good care of the cat.
I have one more question. I see that you e included a link to fill out information about our dog if we decide to follow through with the adoption and I've already filled that form out. Have you received that?
Thank you. Yes I have contacted the breeder. She told me Jackie York of Doodle Collective was looking for a home for him and this was on 9.15.17 I haven't heard anything back from her on this. We got him from Kayla's Sheepadoodles in Spokane and didn't sign any paperwork for him as he was a gift from her since our dog before him died at age 2 from bone cancer. I'm not sure what to do about that but I have been in contact with her. I didn't ask her to take him back nor did she offer. I simply said we needed to find him a new home. This was in September. I will look at the links you have posted and send another email to the breeder. Thank you.
Lex & family thank you Ned, Nancy, Clancy and Charlie! Lex is a very good boy and loves taking pictures. We do belong to Doodle kisses.com as well. Lex hopes to get a brother or sister someday soon. Nice photos Nancy :)
I not really looking for a specific type of doggie "look" as I am temperament. as far as shedding I fully understand that you will still have shedding....i have been the mom of two lab x and 1 purebred lab. my purebred chocolate lab would shed like it was his job! compared to my lab Dalmatian mix hahaha. believe me if I had the choice of having him and ALL of his massive amounts of fur with me again I would be the happiest vacuuming person on the face of hearth. it was July when we lost him and not a day goes by that we don't miss him.
with that being said if my next dog has the possibility of less shedding that would be a win Win win situation. I have found that labs and poodles have many similar traits all that I admire. I simply completed your questioner so I could look at your friends looking for loving families.
