Jake

Red Deer Jake unfortunately had to be re-homed. This was a very hard decision for his family, as they did a lot of work on Jake and he was the best dog ever for them. They wrote:

I am with a heavy heart .. I Stalled finding a home for Jake as long as I could.. I couldn’t avoid it any longer. Thought if I eventually had to give him up it would be in Jake’s best interest to do it sooner rather than later. I was totally in love with that dog! He was so damn smart and devoted. I put an ad on kijiji with stiff requirements as I didn’t want to Jake to be just…. rehomed. I needed to be sure he was going to a loving home with someone that would spend time with him. I Just posted the ad 3 days ago And got a response from his new owners within one hour of posting it. I actually just said goodbye to Jake 2 days ago. (Lots of tears). And still tearing up just typing this. We got a perfect home … He is actually back in Saskatchewan. A little town outside of Prince Albert. The dad stays home with his 4 yr old son and only works an hour a day at the water plant. Mom Works full time. There is only about 90’some people In that town and half of them are relatives. They have a cat and a horse. Apparently They have been looking for a dog just like Jake for a while. We were a little worried about the cat as Jake has never been around them but it seems all is good.

They drove through the night to come and see Jake and let me meet them before we let Jake go. Well.. Jake was in love with the little boy instantly. I cried my eyes out. But it sure helped to know he was going to a good home.

I got a message from them and was told that Jake loves the cat.. So much so the cat has to go hide from him for a rest. Jake absolutely loved to play ball and we played every night. I guess the little boy has him Releasing the ball with hand signals In just one day with them. Jake went with them to their sisters farm and ran with 2 other dogs and I guess Jake was the only one that listened when it was time to come home. They are so happy with him – and are In love with him already ! It helps knowing he is in a loving home and with someone that will spend a lot of time with him:.. But it doesn’t stop the hurting.

This new picture of Jake came with the following update:

Jake is doing awesome… Sometimes I wish he wasn’t so smart though.. Lol

We go to the off leash almost every day— even at minus 20… It seems he is so much better behaved when he tired. Hahah. But I’m so glad it’s finally warming up.

——————————————————————————–

Here is a new picture of Jake; he is a beauty, I almost wish I would have kept the female back for breeding but that has to end. My Doodle breeding program will end in 2018 is all goes as planned. Jake’s family told us:

Jake is doing great!!! Barry took him to the vet for his last shots and received such a great compliment… Said Jake was amazing and acted like a full grown well behaved dog instead of a puppy… Guess we r doing something right!! Hope all had settled down for u somewhat!!! Here us an update pic of our buddy!!!

Here is a new picture and update from Jake’s world:

Just a quick note and pic of Jake’s new Christmas buddy… He fared pretty well with all the people AND dogs and didn’t pee on anyone’s floors… such a good boy!!!

This is Jake, son of Hannah and Einstein and born September 14th, 2013. His new owners sent over some pictures and a video. They told us:

Hi MA.. Hope you had a good trip home and arrived safe and sound… It was an absolute pleasure finally getting to meet you… Some time we will actually be able to sit and have coffee. You have a standing invitation to come visit Jake any time!!

Louis

Here is a great new picture of the always photogenic Louis!

—————————————————————–

Louis is one of Doe Dee and Cesar’s males from August 20th. 2013. One of the owners from this litter has created a private Facebook link for only owners of this litter, if anyone wants to join it I will gladly give you the contact for a link. It is a really great idea and I love opening it and hearing about what the pups are up to in their respective homes.

Here is the latest pictures of Louis and his best friend Shane. This is such a well loved dog and Shane has put literally hundreds of hours into him. Louis needs a tether ball, it will keep him busy for hours and free up the reeling hand! LOL At one time I had a tether ball hung on the clothes line and Becki-Sue (the Russell that turned 14 in Nov.) would spend hours bunting it with her nose. As she got older and couldn’t jump high I lowered the ball. It finally rotted in the sun and I haven’t been able to locate another so if anyone knows where they sell them please advise me. Good job Shane and thanks for all your updates, they are really a part of what keeps me going. Pats and hugs from Grammie! He wrote:

Just a couple more pics of me and my fishing buddy. Lol
He loves it out there the only trouble is how sore my arm is the next day from throwing his ball. Haha

——————————————————————–

Here is a new picture of Lou. His family wrote:

My big guy. Hope all is well, sorry you haven’t heard from me for a while finally got harvest done so I thought I would send u a quick photo. Our big guy is doing very well and we love him more and more each day. He has been such a great companion for Chelene when I was gone to work, and with both kids gone now he is like the new kid so it has been great.

—————————————————————–

Louie’s family sent us this pic and wrote:

Thought I would send u a pic of Lou, Chelene and I out for the day fishing. It was 32 degrees and the big fella and I went for quite a few dips in the lake as well. He is just about a year old and he keeps amazing me at the stuff u can teach this guy. He is (like I have said a number of times) the best dog we have ever had. Thanks again for him.

—————————————————————–

This new photo of Lou was accompanied by this write-up:

Louie and I have been working for the past 2 weeks on his retrieving skills and I have to tell you there is no Labrador in the world that has it up on him! I have him doing blind retrieves and his hand commands are coming along unreal. Yesterday I started with two balls and was making him mark one and then doing a blind one with the other. I can tell you this guy is truly special. He is a machine. I cant wait to get him in the water at the lake and out of the boat it’s gonna be a riot. I will get some one to video him in the near future when we have it a little more mastered.

—————————————————————-

A sweet new picture of Louis. His family wrote:

I haven’t sent you a photo for a while so here is a quick one I took of our guy loving life having a nap with Chelene Sunday afternoon, hope all is well.

—————————————————————-

We’ve now got some pictures of Louie after his first haircut! His family told us:

Just a quick note to let you know our Louie had his 1st hair cut today… made Chelene sad that his curls are gone lol. Groomer said he was AWESOME (as usual) hahaha. Hope all is well.. Seen the pics of your standard pups man I would love to have one of those too but Chelene wants to wait and if you end up with the beautiful chocolate doodles she said she will want one of those for a brother or sister for Louie.

—————————————————————

Another update on Louis. His family wrote:

Louie does trust me like I have never seen. He is so loyal. He is amazing but still doesn’t like to leave me out of his sight and if I go out and don’t take him along (which doesn’t happen very often) he lays at the door I left out of till I return.

—————————————————————-

Another great picture of the luckiest dog in Saskatchewan!!!! His family gave him high praises:

Just another quick pic of our Lou Bear.  He is the best dog I have ever had, his personality is like no other….
Hope all is Well

Shane is a professional photographer so he send lots of pictures and great ones! He wrote:

Here’s a update on my buddy

——————————————————-

This new picture just arrived with a sweet little note that read:

Louie says he misses you.

——————————————————-

I recently got an update and Christmas greetings from Louis and his family that was addressed to “the best dog breeder in the world”. This is enough to make my head swell so my touque won’t fit! They also wrote:

Louie was to the vet yesterday and everything is great they love him there…thought I would send u a new pic he is 40lbs on the nose and my vet thinks he will b 70lbs all day long when he is full grown..he is stating to loose his baby teeth now. Hope all is well and have a great new year!

A Merry Christmas from Louis!

——————————————————

This is Louis. He is from Doe Dee and Cesar‘s August 20th, 2013, litter. His awesome new family lives in Carrot River. The first few days they had crate trouble so I told them some of my ‘crate training tricks’ to try.

When they met me in Invermay to get Louis two weeks ago, the roads were bad and their truck wouldn’t go in reverse so they had to bring the car, apparently the roads were even worse at their end. Then Shane sent me a picture of Louis in ‘his’ truck. So Sunday I sent him back a message that said how much I have enjoyed his sense of humour and all the texts and emails he sends and I asked if ‘Louis’ truck went in reverse yet. . This is what he sent back:

I look forward to becoming friends through this wonderful gift you have given me and my family, I have your web page on my favourites and check out your posts on your pups that have found a new home. Louis is the BEST, we love him so much, he is doing great in his crate and has only ever had two accidents in the house and that was my fault the first couple days we had him.Ya I fixed ‘his truck’ (at least he thinks it is his) LOL it goes backwards now. Things are great with him, he rolls over, shakes both paws, sits, and stays, lays down and doesn’t eat until his is told. AMAZING for a pup for just over 2 weeks of training. You have INCREDIBLE dogs and you should be very proud of them. I know we sure are. Thank you very much:):)

Turbo Yule

Meet Turbo Yule! This young F1B Labra Doodle was kept back for a special buyer, he went to his new home today. This pup is going to go on to do some awesome things in his life. There is not a kinder, more gentle pup than this character and he will fit perfectly into the home he is going to live in. Maybe he will get a log dog house to snuggle into when he is outside.

Becki-Sue Irving

I was taking pictures today so decided to include the boss dog, head of the pack…small but mighty. She is 13 now and still going strong. She keeps everyone in their place and if there is a mouse or rat anywhere she takes care of that in a big hurry. So Merry Christmas from me, Margaret-Ann and my old Jack Russell, Becki-Sue!

Mac and Marty – F1 Labra Doodles (from Amber) – Born August 31, 2013

Mac and Marty have now been SOLD!

Mac and Marty have now been sold. Their mother, Amber has retired and gone to her forever home on a farm near Qu’Appelle, Sask. This litter spans three provinces and everyone is raving about how good their pup is, this is what makes my life worth living. I am trying to hang in with my breeding program so future litters will be posted as they are available. Next litters looking for their forever home are two litters of Standard Poodles and one of F1B Labra Doodles. Marty’s new family wrote:

Thanks so much for Marty. He is such a great boy. He’s very, very sweet and just absolutely hilarious. He bucks a little when he runs and gets excited – such a hoot to watch. He was groomed for the first time the other day and just sat nicely and tolerated it all. He seems like an old soul. That said, he does spend a bit too much time barking at his reflection in the mirror – again, so funny!

The boys have really enjoyed him. He has taken up the habit of laying upside down on their laps, wherever or whatever they are doing. Total ham. He’s a super fast learner and listens really well. Your hard work really shows. Thanks for such an amazing pup.

He’s also enjoying being able to watch the deer out of the windows…I’m sure he’d rather be on the other side of the window though…

Mac and Marty are Amber and Cesar’s pups born August 31st. 2013, so for the buyers who do not have time to start a pup, here is your dream pup already well started!
Mac and Marty are now in the house full time, they are successfully house trained to a dog door without even one accident between them. I reversed the way I did things this time as pup training is an ongoing learning curve, the last two pups would have a few accidents before they learned how to go out the door, so I put Mac and Marty in the outside pen with a dog house full of straw. Kix is in the same pen and knows what the dog door is for, so she would go out and play with them and then come in, soon they were up the ramp behind her peeking in the door at me on the computer. Marty came in first, went back out and got his little brother. Now they are all asleep on the dog bed in my office as I type!

They are fully crate trained, sleep through the night in crates in my office and are very good about it. They are doing very well on the leash, Marty is a little quicker to sit as soon as I stop but Mac is not far behind. Both are doing the ramp and steps and are pro’s about the serpentine pylons, sticking right at my side weaving in and out. I had a lot of fun with picture taking this time and they are really starting to show how beautiful they are going to be as the color starts to change. Mac is going to stay more chocolate and be slightly smaller. Marty is a bit leggier so will end up taller and has his dad’s silver factor coming in a lot faster than Mac.

They are now $1,000 and as more training goes into them the price will go up accordingly. Remember this is a life time commitment, these boys would love to meet their forever family. Text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page for more information or additional pictures.

——————————————————

Mac and Marty are sons of Amber, Chocolate English Lab, and Cesar, Silver Factor Chocolate Standard Poodle, making them F1 Labra Doodles. These are minimal to non shedding, this means they may shed but not like a Lab, nothing that regular brushing wouldn’t fix. These boys are winter proofed with a insulated dog house with lots of straw in it, this gives you the option of keeping them outdoors with a dry place, free of drafts to sleep, or bring them indoors. They are old enough to sleep through the night and have had access to a crate the first three months of their life, so crate and house training would go quickly.

Mac (in the pictures with snow on and around him) has the shaggier type coat and is shorter and stockier than his big brother Marty, on the blanket, who is getting a tighter wavy type coat and more blonde throughout it.

Personality is very similar, the are both gentle natured and eager to please but one thing that is starting to show up is that Marty has developed a great interest in birds, so he may be a good hunting dog prospect. They are just starting on leash work and catch on quickly, we worked stairs yesterday as that is always a hurdle that needs to be crossed with most pups and we will work on that again today, by next week we will advance to steps, ramp and pylons. I teach them to walk in the proper position at my side, sit when I stop, then start ‘stay’ in about a week. When one of my pups sells I give the buyer a demonstration on how I train them, where they are in training and how to proceed. I try to put each pup into the best home possible and am willing to coach on training all I can from here. Each buyer should read Cesar Milan’s book on starting a puppy BEFORE the puppy arrives.

These boys are what I am looking for in my breeding program, I don’t get excited if my pups don’t sell at 8 weeks, I just let them be pups, work it out between them who is the pack leader, then at about 3 1/2 to 4 months old, if they are still here, I begin basic leash work. These boys are $900, they have 3 sets of boosters, have been dewormed twice and are well handled. They were imprinted at birth and taught submission from the beginning, feet are handled regularly and no licking, jumping up or tugging on clothes has ever been allowed. If you are interested in adding one of my pups to your pack please text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page. These boys are from some very solid English Lab breeding (see links below) and the father is Registered and also from some pretty impressive bloodlines…. creating a win win combination for these pups.

——————————————————

‘Mac’ and his little brother ‘Marty’ are sons of Amber (Chocolate English Lab) and Cesar (Silver Factor Chocolate Standard Poodle), born August 31, 2013. Just over 3 months old, the prime time to go into training. Both the boys are now getting their Doodle hair in, it is coming in light reddish brown, and it is giving them a lot of character in looks. They have totally different personalities, Marty (in the last 5 pictures above) has been a little clown from day one and continues to try to be the entertainer of the two. He was a little unsure of the wiggly straw bales I put them on to take pictures, he was pretty interested in burying into the cracks, but Mac (the first 5 pictures) was not fazed a bit, he was more interested in the sparrows, leaves moving on the trees and other dogs. Both pups have been imprinted, handled a lot, especially feet, laid on their backs for submission and are about to go into intense leash work. This is the prefect age to start letting them work on stairs, ramps and learning to heel and sit properly in the correct position.

These pup are classified as minimal to non shedding, this means they will not shed like a lab if they do shed at all, they will shed more like what is in your hairbrush (if you have hair), regular brushing eliminates this and is the best tool there is to bond you with your pup. Dew claws are removed, they have three sets of boosters so are safe to go anywhere you would like to take them, and they are completely vet checked and cleared for take off. Mac will mature at about 60 to 65 lbs. and I am thinking Marty will only be slightly smaller. For more information on Mac and Marty please text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page.

Brook – F1 Labra Doodle (from Amber) – Born August 31, 2013

Brook has now been SOLD!

Brook was born on August 31st, 2013, from Amber and Cesar.  She was held back from being advertised because she had a few eyelashes on her right eye that were turned in a causing her eye to water.  My trusty vet put two stitches in the skin under her bottom eyelid and fixed the minor problem, she got her stitches out today and is clear to go on to her new family.   I started her on a leash this morning and she had another lesson when we got home from the vet……this little monkey catches on quickly.   She has a soft personality and a willing to please temperament, she is ready to go on to be one of the best dogs you will ever have the pleasure of owning.   I am staring leash training on her now, so her price will go up $100 a month, she is $900 now, that includes delivery safely into your arms in the Central Prairies, buyers from further away can meet me part way.   She has three sets of boosters, has been dewormed, dew claws are removed and she is totally vet checked.   She is just starting to get her Doodle hair now and when she is mature she will look like the dog named ‘Hemi’ on my web site.   For more information on Brook please text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page.

Tucker

Camryn spends a lot of time with her dog. Tucker’s family wrote us:

Here is a picture of Tucker and Camryn on a paddle board at Crystal Lake.

———————————————————

Tucker is from Dezi and Einstein‘s March 27, 2011 litter. I keep tying to explain to people that this is what the black pups will turn out like, but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words! Tucker’s family wrote:

Here is our big tough dog with Camryn. He only relaxes this way with her!

Chuck – F1B Golden Doodle (from Doe Dee) – Born August 20, 2013

Chuck has now been SOLD!

Meet ‘Chuck’, last available son of Doe Dee (F1 Golden Doodle) and Cesar (Silver Factor Chocolate Standard Poodle). This pup was from a litter of 13 born August 20th, 2013. I have been too busy delivering pups to get any good pictures of him, so today I was set up to do pictures of Brook and ran out and got Chuck. A brisk drag through the snow and he was soon following the lead, I am putting this guy on my list to start training, he is $900 now and with each month of training his price will go up by $100. He is a gentle mannered pup, he is in the exercise pen with Debbie’s last three pups and today I added Brook (daughter of Amber). Cesar is the father to all five pups in that pen and it is such a delight to watch them play together. It is time to get down to business and put leads on and start taking them with me while I do chores, I have the hay shed set up now with pylons and steps and a ramp, so now to teach these guys how to go into life with the best start possible. They have not ever been allowed to jump up on me or lick me, so manners are in order….now if I could just train the people to carry on with this we would have a world full of great dogs. For more information on Chuck please text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page.

Simon – F1 Labra Doodle (from Hannah) – Born September 14, 2013

Simon has now been SOLD!

Simon has now gone into intensive obedience training, his price will now go up $25 a week until he is sold. This is a very soft temperament, easy going young male F1 Labra Doodle. He is very quick to learn, is quiet in both vocal and nature and is just an easy going kind of pup, very much like his mother. He is classified as a minimal to non shedder. I do, however, think he will shed a bit… nothing like a Lab and nothing regular brushing or vacuuming won’t fix. He has only been in the house for training purposes, so has a great winter coat and would be fine being an outside dog.

Simon has three sets of boosters,and has been dewormed twice, so he is good to go. He would like to be with children, his character is perfectly fit to be the ‘dog of a growing boy that needs some responsibility and the grounding of chores’ kind of pup. A pup that gets a kid up and outside for a walk. A pup that needs his poop picked up, to ground a kid to the realities of real life. A pup to tell all your troubles and secrets to. The ideal home for Simon would be with a kid that needs a dog! Or a hunter that needs a hunting partner….or ideally a kid that is learning to hunt and needs a partner. Simon is now $700 and will start to go up in the new year.

——————————————————–

‘Simon’, born Sept. 14th, 2013, is the last available son from Hannah (Chocolate English Lab) and Einstein (Apricot Standard Poodle). Hannah is now spayed and looking for her forever family on a farm or acreage. Simon is quite the little guy that would make someone a great bird dog, he is watching sparrows in the pictures of him looking up, not all dogs look up but Simon is very aware of what is going on around him, both with sight and sound. He knows he is ‘Simon’ although he has only had this name a few days, as soon as I call him his tail starts to go and he gets that look on his face. The “are you talking to me?” look. He has now had three sets of boosters, has been dewormed twice and has been completely vet checked, so everything is in order for him to go on to be the best darn family or hunting dog that money can buy! His price is $700 delivered safely from my arms to yours as I will not ship my pups and have them traumatized along the way. Simon is starting to get his ‘Doodle hair’ in now and he shows a lot of character with his little spikes of longer hair. He has gentle temperament, something I breed for, and a great Lab style head, not a pointy Poodle head, his character is also very Lab like, but he definitely got the Poodle smarts. For more information on Simon please text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page. Browse the web page for information on his parents.
