A third Jackadoodle has been added to the Gallery and I am glad to say it is making the Gallery page worth looking at. As it grows you will be able to see the diversity of this lesser known breed.

Enzo Gets A Haircut

Posted on | February 3, 2013 | No Comments

I have had quite a few people contact me about grooming their own Jackadoodle. I stated in a previous post that I used to take both Enzo and Marley to the groomers, but because of Marleys appalling behaviour I took to grooming them myself. Here is a time lapse video of Enzo getting a haircut. Follow the link below to see the video and I hope you enjoy it.

Enzo Gets A Haircut

As you can see there are a few stray hairs that I haven’t managed to get, however these are trimmed later on when Enzo comes and joins me for his nighttime snooze. I will trim his ears and face while he sleeps and then after a shower tomorrow (give his cut a little to calm down) I will finish off his legs.

Once you have viewed it you need to press the back button to get to the blog again. This is something to do with WordPress…

Another Jackadoodle

Posted on | July 31, 2012 | No Comments

I met another jackadoodle the other day outside my local shop. As a sociable kind of guy, I asked about her. She looked the same build as Marleys sister, quite small and slight of build, however she was still cute.

In the conversation in came up that I wrote this blog. It only turns out that they found their little jackadoodle through the site, clicking on the link for Lotuspoint. To say I was chuffed is an understatement. I couldn’t wait to get home and tell my wife.

I am so sorry though that I forgot to ask the little lady’s name. I’m rubbish like that. So,if you are reading this I would like you to send in a photo of your little girl for this blog and the start of the gallery that I have been promising. Please can you go to the contact page and send an image in? This invitation is also open to all your Jackadoodles, let’s fill the blog with these lovely, beautiful natured dogs.

How To Stop My Jackadoodle Running Off Everytime We Take Her Out

Posted on | July 31, 2012 | No Comments

Where am I getting these titles from? Mainly from the searches that are coming through google. So…

My story is a probably quite familiar. When we first got Enzo we had him on the lead for the first ten to twelve months, this wasn’t because he would run off, but because I thought he might run off. It was my paranoia that I would lose him. I had an extending lead and that I thought was good enough to give him exercise. However, we were walking through some woods near High Dam in the South Lakes when a very small dog came sniffing up to Enzo. When I asked the owner how old the dog was, she said just over twelve weeks. And there it was, my moment of realisation.

The dog was sniffing around trees, running and skipping in and out of the natural furniture, basically looking like it was enjoying itself immensely. After the dog and owners had passed I let Enzo off the lead for the first time. The first thing he did was to run ahead of us and into the woods, small panic, but when I saw him get into a crouch, I knew he wasnt running. He finished his business and then returned to us and stayed with us for the rest of the walk. Since then he has been off lead every chance I get and he never strays far.

However, with Marley I let him off straight away, with the knowledge that he would (emulate) Enzo… And he did. Marley stayed at my side, only wandering off a couple of feet to sniff at the odd smell left by Enzo. He has been at my feet ever since.

However, Enzo has taken to hanging around at the back of me when we walk. It isn’t a major problem, but it does make a walk quite long… This is where treats have come in. I was reluctant to use them, but when I want to get a move on, I make sure Enzo knows I have treats and he keeps up, or responds very quickly to the ‘Come here’ command.

So, these were my ways, or lack of ways as I just trusted the dogs to come back… I hope this is useful… Good luck.

Do Jackadoodles Need A Lot Of Exercise

Posted on | May 16, 2012 | No Comments

Another question that is searched for a lot. However I can only answer from my experience… and that is ‘as much as you want’.

A dog will always behave better if it has had the exercise it needs, and this depends on your level of commitment to the dog. Personally speaking, our two get (typically) 3 – 5 miles a day during the week, however that will go up to 5 -10 miles on a Saturday and then again on a Sunday. They can of course get less than this, but it means that they are pestering me to play with them all day.

I tend to take them to places where I can let them off their lead and allow them the freedom to run and chase each other, therefore covering a lot more ground than myself. Whereas my Wife will walk them on their leads… but she only takes them out when she is going for a long walk herself. This way they get the best of both worlds and we cover a fair few miles.

What I would add is that any problems you foresee with walking/exercising a dog is far outweighed by the love and joy these little critters give you. Even on the worst of days, when you really can not be bothered venturing outside, once there and walking, it is fantastic.You not only feel better, but you also have a dog that settles down at your side and distributes it’s warmth freely.
