We have 2 wonderful Goldendoodles. Jake is 12 and Toby was born in Feb 2021, so as I write this he is almost 1.5 years old.
Jake is the perfect dog. Sadly he is getting on in years.
Toby is a rascal. Loves attention. loves to play and loves to bring us treasures, especially my hair crunchies or any clothing he can find.
Both dogs love to hike in the woods off-leash and luckily there are plenty of places around here to do so. They also love to wade in the water even in the middle of the winter when most water is frozen, but they will find some water! Of course, they love mud. Luckily the mud just falls off Jake as soon as it dries, but Toby sometimes needs his paws rinsed off.
Jake was great about staying in our yard until we adopted Toby, then all training went out the window so we recently set up a Petsafe electric fence.
Both dogs are easy. The biggest challenge is feeding them because we feed them the best! The dog food we give them is from Dr. Harvey’s. We add raw meat (we grind it ourselves and freeze it in 1-cup Ziplock bags) vegetables, berries, pumpkin and olive oil.
We travel often but rarely travel without Jake and Toby. They are great in the car, even on very long distances. But sometimes no matter how we try to bring them with us, there are times when we must leave them at home. They love being at home and the neighbors love to come over to feed or walk them when we are in a pinch.
