There is no guarantee a certain breed of dog, even a Labradoodle, will produce a couch potato.
It is important to consider how much enthusiasm each breed carries so you search for a dog in the right area.
Regardless of what your new furry family member turns out like, activity must be manageable. Labradoodles like to do things.
They are companionable dogs. Make your Labradoodle aware when they can be enthusiastic and when to curtail their energetic ways.
It is usually fine for the dog to be rambunctious in the field.
If you use your Labradoodle as a hunting dog, do not encourage persistent activity.
They will be confused when the two of you go to Flush and Retrieve Training.
It is not acceptable to race through the house and bound over the furniture.
Limits are important things to teach. Maintain a cool demeanor while correcting the dog.
Dogs react to excitement and if you are speaking quickly and acting nervous, they will be nervous, excitable and react to your emotions.
Be calm. Make your movements purposeful. Speak to them calmly but firmly. Stay reassuring.
Never try to put a lead on an excited dog. Their enthusiasm and concern may result in a nip or an injury.
Remain calm and talk to them firmly, yet kindly. The deliberate, calm handling will help the dog relax.
Fighting to put a lead on his collar will cause them to jump more aggressively and fidget.
Take a firm grip on the handle and command the dog to sit in a firm, slow voice.
Place them in a sit position. Hold them in place until they stop fighting the sit position.
Tell them what a good dog they are for sitting. Praise them quietly because hand signals or physical contact often creates more excitement.
Try again to attach the lead. If they get excited again, order them to sit. Repeat the forced sit, if necessary.
Praise them when they relax.
When you finally get the lead on, verbally let them know what a good dog they are for sitting still while you attach the lead.
You and your dog will have valuable one-on-one interaction when the two of you attend obedience training.
Obedience training is a good opportunity for an energetic dog. They learn to sit quietly and use energy as they concentrate on learning.
Be ready to praise them a lot. The "settle" command helps control their behavior in the house.
If they gets too rambunctious, use the command "settle."
A settle of ten minutes will cause them to relax and may even put them to sleep.
"Settle" is a one-word command that will produce dividends in a well-behaved, manageable dog.
When settle time is over, the dog will be calmer. Command a "settle" when they get overly excited in the house.
Labradoodles are very smart dogs and learn that when outside they are usually free to leap and run without a settle.
Realizing the back yard is their playground, not the house, is a good lesson. It provide an outlet for them to burn off their energy.
Adjust their exercise routine and lifestyle to accommodate that energy.
If the dog is a people dog, spend energy using time with them.
Go for runs or walks and toss them a ball or Frisbee to fetch.
A back yard is not always the place the dog wants to play and the house is definitely not the place to play aggressively.
Check out local dog parks where they can run and play with other dogs.
Search for a doggie day care in the area they can attend once a week.
Remember there are many options to keep your Labradoodle disciplined and content.
