Izzy

Izzy went to Saskatoon first but the lady had recently had surgery and there were some allergy issues so I went and got her back. Her Calgary family were given the phone number of her Saskatoon family so they could compare notes to see if Izzy was a good fit….turns out she is a great fit. I still have one male from this litter that I named Ferlin, I have done a fair amount of work on him so once it warms up I’ll do some finishing touches and offer him for sale. Izzy’s family wrote:

I hope you’re doing well and keeping warm in Saskatchewan! I just wanted to give you an update on our dear little Izzy. She is an amazing pup – she’s the cuddliest, sweetest girl ever! She’s 6 months now and has lots of spunk, but is happy just to chill with the family at every opportunity. She’s a little shy when it comes to people, but she’s never met a dog she doesn’t love. She’s great with the kids and I can hardly remember what it was like around here without her.

She’s doing absolutely great with us here in Calgary – although you might not recognize her these days! About a month ago, we didn’t realize she was getting matted around her joints (knees and elbows) and the groomer suggested we “start from zero”. Well, little did we know how SHORT that meant! Really, it doesn’t matter because we know it will grow out (and, actually, it’s a very manageable hair-do!) although my 7-year old thought she looked like a “messed up Weimaraner” when we picked her up at the groomer! She’s growing out nicely, which is great because it’s ridiculously cold here and she doesn’t love her doggy parka or boots. Just like her human mom, she’s getting lots of silvery hair in her coat, so we think she’s going to be a really cool silver color as she gets older.

We hope you’re doing well and thank you every day for the love and care you put into Izzy. She still rings the bell when she wants to go outside, and has such lovely dog manners. We get compliments on what a sweet dog she is all the time. We know the circumstances of Izzy coming to our family were so unusual, and we feel so lucky. Izzy is an important part of our family. Thanks so much for doing what you do!

Izzy is now in her new home in Calgary with her new kids, just in time for Christmas. I am sure she will be fine now!

Izzy has now been SOLD!

Meet ‘Izzy’, she is a daughter of Debbie (F1 Labra Doodle) and Cesar (Silver Factor Chocolate Standard Poodle) born August 30th, 2013. Izzy is from a litter of 12 pups that are very well handled as they were bottle supplemented the first month of their life until they could start on a dish, then they got a bottle at bed time for another week. She is the last female available. She went to her ‘forever family’ but they have severe allergies so reacted to her and reluctantly sent her back to be replaced with a full Standard Poodle. Izzy would be great for a family with allergies that are not severe or a family that just want a non shedding dog.

This pup has had nails trimmed and foot massages regularly, she has been bathed here and also been professionally groomed, she is a sweetheart to work with and has a very ‘willing to please’ temperament. She is just starting to get some silver hairs into her coat, along her muzzle and around her eyes, she is not going to stay black but will slowly change to either ‘brindle’ or ‘shotgun’ silver in colour. She is pretty much house trained, there have been very few accidents, she uses the dog door in my office that goes down a ramp and into an outside run. She sleeps through the night in her crate and only squeeks in the morning when she needs out. She walks very well on a leash and has had three sets of boosters, so she is safe to go anywhere you would like to take her, she is totally vet checked and ready to go on to her life of adventure. She would love to go to the lake, or camping, hiking, or just sit around with her family and take them for long walks. This girl would ace a puppy obedience class, she is well socialized with other dogs, was very gentle with the barn cats when she had access to them and loves children.

Izzy would be perfect for someone who does not have time to start a pup, she is well started and ready to have her own forever family to love and look after for the next 15 years. Her price is $1,100 and that price includes delivery safely into your arms, if you live further away we could meet part way but I don’t have a problem delivering to the central prairies. I do not ship my pups! For more information on Izzy please text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page.

F1 Labra Doodle Litter (Tigger) – Born October 1, 2013

All Tigger’s puppies have been sold!

Tigger and Cesar have four dandy F1 Chocolate Male pups ready for adoption. Christmas, bitterly cold weather, and a concussion, delayed advertising these boys but we are more concerned about the right pup for the right home than having them lost in the gift wrap of the holidays. So now that things have settled back into a routine it would be a great time to fit a pup into the schedule and have him well trained by the time you go to the lake. The pups started leash work yesterday, their fist day out of the barn, it has now warmed up enough that they can have the freedom of the biggest dog run on the farm, with two dog houses and a canopy to play under and toys to chase around. The pups are now 3 months (13 weeks) old and are prime age for learning new things. Until this point they have been taught manners, no licking, no jumping up on people and no tugging at clothes, pee and poop goes in one small area (we will enforce that rule in the big outside pen also). These guys are old enough to sleep through the night, they have had access to a crate with the door off, and now to dog houses with swinging dog house doors, so crate training would not take long. Within the week they will be walking in proper position at my side and will be working on sitting each time I stop without being told, once we start more advanced training the price will go up accordingly.

They each have such a different character and I would be more than happy to tell you about them individually once you have narrowed it down by looks which pup you may be interested in, or you can tell me about your life style, and what you expect of a pup, and I can try to fit the right pup with you. Now that they have started training they have names, the smallest straighter coat male is Rusty, the clown, with the green Toss-a-round toy. The Mid size Shaggy coat with the Red Toss-a-round is Hershey the bird watcher. The Shaggiest with the Orange Toss-a-round is the scamp in the crew named Reese and last of all is Turk, the smaller of the shaggy coats has a quiet gentle disposition, he has his gray Teddy Bear in the pictures with him.

Also in these pictures are their sisters, Roxy and Sallie, about whom you can find more information on their very own page.

These pups have had three sets of boosters, have been dewormed and are well handled with nail trimming and paw massages, laying on their back for submission and come to a whistle. They were trained to pee and poop in one area of the pen inside the barn and we are now continuing that training outside. The price of the pup, $900, includes delivery to most places on the central prairie, buyers from further away can meet me part way or fly to Regina where I will meet you so you can accompany your pup home. I do not ship my pups. For more information text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page. I do not negotiate the price of my pups, this is what I do for a living and I am already the most reasonably priced breeder of quality Doodles.

————————————————

Tigger (Chocolate English Lab) and Cesar (Silver Factor Chocolate Standard Poodle) have produced their first litter of F1 Chocolate Labra Doodle puppies. Meet the males, ‘Teddy’ with the Blue toy, is the biggest of the shaggy boys, ‘Rusty’, with the Green toy is smallest of the shaggy boys, ‘Hershey’ is shaggy and mid size, ‘Reese’ is shaggiest with the Orange toy and last but not least is ‘Turk’ with his Teddy Bear, both he and his teddy have a smooth coat. This is the “Happy Gang”, these guys are rolly polly, play like heck, then sleep like heck, get up and have a snack and start all over, kind of pups. They have been a fun litter to work with right from the start. Tigger was a little overwhelmed by it all the first few days but then would lay back and show them off once she figured out what to do.

Dew claws are removed, two sets of boosters, deworming and vet checks are done, they are 8 weeks old now and ready to find their individual homes and become a valued family member for the next 14 to 15 years. The boys will become intelligent, kind, gentle and extremely loyal dogs that will give you many years of love and affection in exchange for food and attention. They are $900 and that price includes safe delivery into your arms. I do not ship my pups, I drive them as close as I can get to their forever home. I deliver the Central Prairies, if you are further away you can arrange to meet me part way. For more information text 306 521-1371 or use my contact page.
