Videos of Texas Labradoodles
Here is a quick view into our wonderful world of Texas Labradoodles. We can’t say enough about the kindness and genuine love these dogs offer our family for more than a decade. We hope you enjoy these sweet videos, some show how cute and funny our Labradoodles are, but some of the videos show just how smart these dogs are at such a young age!
Labradoodle Puppies – the first weeks
This is such a sweet time in our home. We love their tiny paw pads and their puppy breath. These tiny, silly souls are truly a gift every day. If you have not seen the movie “A Dog’s Purpose” I could not recommend a movie for dog lovers more! Each delivery of every litter reminds that a new sweet soul has just come into the world and that each of these precious lives will go on to become a great friend, protector and family member. Every dog is such a blessing.
Precious Labradoodle Puppies
This video brings a smile to my face every time I see it. Just as our puppies grow so fast, so has our youngest son, James, who you see running from these 11 Labradoodles! James is 13 years old now and as tall as his dad! Time flies when you’re having fun (running from puppies).
Training Texas Labradoodles
How well do Labradoodle puppies potty-train?
Potty training depends mostly on the owner and consistency. We start our puppies in their puppy pens at four weeks old with a pine shaving filled “litter” box to encourage them to go potty in an “outdoor smell,” as dogs do everything by smell. This helps to get a great start on potty training. Once our puppies get home, we recommend keeping them on a strict feeding/potty schedule three times a day to create good habits with lots of potty breaks in between. It is important to have a cue word for going outside such as “outside” or “potty” and to always take your puppy to the same door.
Do Labradoodles dig in the dirt?
All dogs will be diggers if they are left in a yard by themselves without proper stimulation and attention. We do our best not to sell our puppies to people that would leave them alone in a yard for long periods of time because we know that Labradoodles are such family dogs and they do not want to be left alone.
Do these dogs chew?
All dogs chew, it is a natural instinct for them, especially puppies that are teething. It is best to have lots of great chew toys for them and be sure to keep them directed to chewing what you want them to. You want to be sure never to allow your dog to chew on your hands or clothing, always redirect them with a toy.
Are Labradoodles good with children?
There is no other dog that loves children more than Labradoodles. It has amazed me time and again how even our young puppies understand that a child is different than an adult and they love to play with them.
How trainable are these dogs?
The multi-generational Australian Labradoodle has been bred to be trained as a guide dog or therapy dog. They are extremely intelligent and eager to please their owners. Labradoodles love treats and that’s the easiest way to get them to do what you want, positive reinforcement.
Do you recommend crate training?
Yes, our dogs love their crates. We give them a treat and say “crate” when it is time for them to go into their crates from a very early age. This creates a positive association which leads to them looking forward to laying in their crates at rest times or bed time and knowing that this is a safe haven where they can relax and not worry about a thing. Dogs are den animals and crates support their instinct to be a covered in a protected sleeping place
What books do you recommend?
I love Way to Go, How to house train a dog at any age by Karen London and Patricia McConnell, 101 Dog Tricks by Kyra Sundance (this book has lots of great pictures for kids), The Other End of the Leash by Patricia McConnell, this books covers a lot of great information on the way dogs think. There are lots of great dog books out, these are just a few of my favorites.
It never ceases to amaze us how easily these puppies are trained. The training in these videos is the result of minutes of work with these smart puppies. Every one of these Labradoodles is responding to key words and positive reinforcement in 2 to 3 attempts. We love all dogs, but we truly believe that these are the smartest, most trainable dogs in the world!
