Introducing Calypso Breeze Lennon's Imagine! Lennon is starting his testing and if he passes, he will be our second stud boy here at Calypso Breeze. He will mature to be a large miniature or possibly a small medium Australian Labradoodle. Lennon is a chocolate and white Parti boy with a soft and silky, wavy fleece coat. Besides his stellar looks, he is intelligent and incredibly loving, which is of no surprise to me as he is the son of my beloved Rio, aka Smushy!
Lennon has the perfect Australian Labradoodle temperament. He is athletic, comical, attentive and loyal. Lennon makes great eye contact which is an important trait of the Australian Labradoodle. I hope to have him certified as a Therapy Dog as I feel he would be well-suited for this.
The Australian Labradoodle is also known for their non-shedding coats. Whether they are wavy fleece, curly fleece or wool, it is important that they are as low to non-shedding as possible. Many people desire an Australian Labradoodle as a pet for this very reason. People with allergies generally do well with an Australian Labradoodle living in their homes as their coats are hypo-allergenic.
We are super excited about adding Lennon to our program and even more thrilled that he has become a member of our family. We are sure to have many fun-filled days with this boy.
Here are some more pictures of Lennon as well as a few of his mom, Rio.
Have a wagtastic day!
Socialization is so important for a young puppy! We are very fortunate to have neighbors who have become great friends and also just happen to LOVE dogs...even our crazy doodles!
Pictured here are Les and our 4 month old girl, Rain. Les and his most awesome wife, Tammy, often come to visit and play with the doodles. Sometimes, they pretend that they came over to talk to us, but we know it's really to get some doodle lovin'.
The best time for socialization for puppies is between 3 weeks and 3 months of age. At this time they should be introduced to many different people, other species (cats and such), other dogs, and varieties of surfaces and environments. Be sure to introduce your pup to men and woman, young and old, and of different ethnicities. Be sure to introduce them to young children. Always make it a positive experience by having treats and toys for your puppy. Bring visitors to your home and have them wear hats, glasses, big coats, etc. so that your pup get used to seeing all sorts of people wearing an array of accessories. Expose them to different surfaces such as tile, hard wood floors, carpet, concrete, grass, snow and sand. Enroll them in puppy classes and visit stores that allow pets. All of this will set your puppy on the path of being a well-adjusted, well-behaved dog.
Below are more pictures of Les playing with our doodles as they enjoy a romp on the front lawn. Enjoy!
Holy Heck! Time sure does fly when you're surrounded by the love and crazy antics of a bunch of Australian Labradoodles! I can't believe it's been a year since I've blogged....I guess I've been busy!
We spent last Winter in Indiana with temperatures sometimes plummeting to -40 degrees with the wind chill factor. Not to mention there was an incredible amount of snowfall. The doodles loved playing in the snow and didn't seem to mind the extreme temperatures. Us? Not so much!
So we loaded up the truck and we moved to Tennessee! We are now living near Chattanooga, Tennessee atop a mountain. We absolutely love it here and the doodles have settled nicely into their new surroundings. The scenery is gorgeous and the climate is somewhat moderate. This will be our forever home and we're all excited for what the future will bring us.
I'm sharing some photos from the almost year that has passed. Hope you enjoy!
