My husband and I both grew up with dogs. We are both dog lovers and our kids are too. We have talked about getting a dog for years! Over the last year the push for a dog became greater! I the one that was reluctant because I am home during the day and most of the training would fall on my shoulders. I have never trained a dog, so the thought of training a dog was scary. On Christmas day, my husband declared "We are getting a dog!" We decided on a GoldenDoodle puppy for a number of reasons. They are very smart, easily trained, great with kids and hypoallergenic.
Over Christmas break the kids and I went to a breeder in a suburbs near us that had two available Goldendoodles. When we walked in I saw the most adorable apricot colored puppy and I knew she was the one! We did not take her home that day, we wanted to wait a few days to get everything ready to bring her home.
We started the New Year off picking up our newest family member, Miss Layla Jane! Which was the best way to kick off 2017!
The past two weeks have been a lot of fun with her! We are in the middle of crate training and teaching her to ring a bell when she needs to go out to go potty. Its all a work in process but she has ben doing very well adjusting to our home. We are very happy with the new addition to our family. I am sure I will share more with you in the future!
