    Default Oh no! New Neighbors!

    Have a "Goldendoodle"!!! Looks like a small pony. Whats worse we met when I was working my dog in the marsh today. She asks me, "can you help me train my dog to do that?" What now? Sorry, but she is also a business client of mine and I cant tell her to stuff it!

    Hey, they probably payed big bucks for that dog. Give it a job.

    Does the "Goldendoodle" shed, have dander(allergy free) and all of the other hype that they say they are? Why not help her out? A dog is a dog. It can't help it cause of the moron breeders or buyers for that matter. Maybe you can educate them alittle bit.

    Could be valuable knowledge and great for business. "Not only can I train retrievers, but I can train Goldendoodles too"

    They love their pup, and it is a nice dog. They also let on that they paid over $1,000 for her. I just dont know how to react when they want to "let them play together" and "can you show me how to train my dog to mind like that" Hell, I had enough trouble with my own, and how can I say I see no point in it???

    and how can I say I see no point in it???
    Actually Carol, you can't. They're neighbors and potential friends. Help them as much as time and circumstances allow.

    As Tim said, the dog doesn't know he's a mutt. He might love the game as much as any retriever. Also, he should be able to play NAHRA if they're still playing it in your neck of the woods.

    If he looks anything like a golden he might be able to pass an ILP, and then play AKC hunt tests.

    It hurts no one and it might introduce someone into the game that loves it. Never hurts to show another dog owner what we're doing.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
