I want to introduce Licorice, the cutest Labradoodle puppy on the premises at Adirondack Labradoodles. I'm also required to mention that he is the only Labradoodle puppy presently on the premises at Adirondack Labradoodle. But he is also arguably one of the cutest on the Eastern Seaboard, so I'm not just blowing hot air! Anyway, he is 12 weeks old now, well on his way to being housebroken, he is fully crate-trained (loves his crate! goes in many times a day on his own) and just a lover! He loves to come right up to me and shake hands, and get a chest rub. He loves to come sit next to my chair and watch me do whatever it is I do!? Now he needs a home, and if you need a partially trained, beautiful Labradoodle now that summer is coming on, I highly recommend you contact us and come see Licorice. He will not disappoint any dog-lover! Yours, Andy
My advice on this is as follows, " Don't backslide!" When you receive your puppy from us, it will be sleeping in a crate through the night with no accidents. Every morning at 6am it will be used to running straight outside and hitting the grass to do its business. Make sure you set an alarm and get up for the morning blitz. Then as the weeks go by the puppy will be more able to hold its peace. As far as daytime housebreaking goes, the key to that is making sure that you let puppy out immediately after meals, and only introduce a water bowl inside, once feeding and going out is well established. What you don't want to do is leave a puppy knocking around the house for long periods unsupervised. Then they will have no choice but to find a spot to relieve themselves, and then you will have an issue to resolve. If you keep them supervised in your living space, or outside, or in a crate at all times for the first few weeks, it will probably never be an issue! And you'll say like so many others "Our puppy is so smart, I can't believe how easy she was to potty-train..." Smart people make our dogs look good! Be smart!
