New Labradoodle Puppy: 3 Tips For Every New Owner

1. Get A Puppy Blanket: Have a soft blanket that your puppy can lie on when she is on the floor or when she's in your lap.

It will have her familiar odor on it and it will mark her territory.

It's also a protective barrier. If you have carpeting, it protects the carpet from the oils of your Labradodle puppy's coat which can ruin your carpet and cause odor.

The blanket also acts as great padding for her crate, and the familiar smell makes it ideal for when you take your pup away from home.

Whether driving in the car or visiting friends, the familiar blanket will give your pup a sense of security.

The blanket can also absorb urine in case your pup has an accident. Being considerate with little things like this will ensure that you will be invited back with your pup.

2. Don't Disturb A Sleeping Puppy: You may be surprised at how many hours your Labradoodle puppy spends sleeping. Don't disturb your pup by trying to play with him. Sleep is just as vital to a puppy's growth as a good diet

Take naps with your pup by placing a puppy blanket over yourself and letting him sleep on top of you. In this way, you create a deeper bond. Be a cuddle bone to your puppy.

It will remind your pup of the whelping box where litter mates gather in a heap for warmth and comfort.

3. Confine The Pup To One Room: It's a good idea to confine your pup alone in one room for short periods of time - three to five minutes.

The room should be safe, with no water bowls on the floor nor anything dangerous that he can chew. Make sure he has already been outside to relieve himself.

LabradoodleConfining your pup to one room for short periods helps decrease separation anxiety in the future. You are also acclimating him to being in a room by himself without having to crate him. This helps build his confidence level.

You can give him a toy or two to keep him occupied. If you don't want to crate him or confine him in a separate room and you can't keep an eye on him, then tie your puppy's lead to your waist so that he can follow you from room to room.

Do not force puppies to sustain a pounding pace, especially on pavement, lest you injure their developing bones.

That means no jogging or bicycling until they're through adolescence - two years old is a good ballpark figure, but check with your veterinarian.
