Murphy and I have enjoyed following the advice and guidance set out in your book and it has been a real eye-opener for me to discover that I was doing so many things wrong! He has been transformed from an over-excited and destructive nuisance to a calm and well-behaved dog whom I am extremely proud of. It has made such a difference to our life and Murphy seems so much happier. Thank you so much – I will be recommending you to all the other Labradoodle owners I know.”
- Rory Webster, San Francisco


It was something of a shock when we brought Doodles home! We thought that puppies slept a lot but Doodles was absolutely manic!! We couldn't teach him anything. It was especially stressful and embarrassing when out in public. Thank goodness for ‘Labradoodle Savvy’, your advice has been invaluable and Doodles is a whole lot calmer which means he's a joy to be around and his obedience training is going so well we even got a compliment when out the other day. ”

Everything you need to know

I couldn’t understand why our Labradoodle, Jake, was shedding hair. It wasn’t until I read your guide that I realised that there are different types of Labradoodle crosses and that not all of them are non-shedding. Apart from that, he is a lovely boy and exactly as you describe in your guide. We are finding your advice very useful.”
- Kay Alexander, Margate, UK

Easy training

The training so far has been fast and easy. Murphy is smart and eager to please and your instructions have made the training very pleasurable and fun for both of us!”
- Tessa Morton, Jackson, MS

Spirit of Adventure

One of the main reasons I chose a Labradoodle was because we love hiking and I wanted an active and athletic dog. Unfortunately, KC decided that he wanted to do his own explorations and on a couple of occasions I was left looking for him for over 2 hours – I really thought we’d lost him. Thanks to your training tips and advice KC really listens to me now and always comes when he is called now. Thanks!”

helped me to get to know the breed

The book has helped me to get to know the breed. I have a bison that is 7 and he needs not much exercise. But the book has taught me to take this dog and walk her a lot and run her as much as possible so she doesnt get bored. That'ss when they get into trouble when they are bored!”
- Mary Brauns, Abingdon Maryland USA

doing the right thing now

Raising a dog is a lot harder than I anticipated because I work. Also, my dog is self destructive - eats everything and has major surgery 3 times and must be crated. I feel that I'm doing the right thing now and your information reinforces it. I also learned I'm doing the right thing by socialization, doggy day care and having a dog walker. I feel much better.”

Labradoodle Savvy is a wonderful resource for our family to help our Labradoodle, Twila, become a happy, healthy, part of the family kind of dog.

an absolute gentleman for a pup

Labradoodle Savvy is the most complete book on dog training that we have ever read. Our new pup is only 14 weeks old. We read the book first, then found our pup. We followed your advice and we have the most well behaved puppy. We are so proud him. He is an absolute gentleman for a pup of 14 weeks.”

really useful and help a lot

My mom found it on the net and bought the book right away. The whole family read the book even before we got our new puppy. It made us feel like we weren't totally lost when it came to bringing home our families 1st puppy. The emails that are sent every couple of days are really useful and help a lot. The information has really helped and it was a really good way to get into the grove of bringing a puppy into our family.”

book specifically about Labradoodles

I found Labradoodle Savvy when looking for help on how to groom my matted up 10 month old puppy. I was delighted to find in my google search a book specifically about Labradoodles. We were having some ongoing behaviour issues that seemed harder to shift than with my previous dog. It was a relief to hear that many of the things we were experiencing were typical for the breed and reassuring to know that I can ask specific questions about my dog and have ongoing help to mould her into a lovely family pet.”
- Janine Mahoney, Gisborne Victoria Australia

Cody is coming along nicely

I wish I had signed up for this when I first got my puppy. He was 4 months old before I found you! I have found the obedience tips very useful, and have put to use the training tips very successfully. My Cody is coming along nicely thanks to some very good ideas I've learned from Labradoodle Savvy. For example, I've learned that my tone of voice is important in getting him to obey my commands. I look forward to the emails and how I can put to use some great ideas in getting my Cody to be a well behaved dog.”

they are enjoying her

Sandy is my first dog and I was a total novice - reading Labradoodle Savvy let me know that I was doing things right and to keep at it even though some people (obviously not in the know) were saying that I couldn't train her that she was too silly!! She is adorable and I am really enjoying her and that is great coming from someone who really didn't like dogs.

Desperate to find someone who could help having just acquired a 6 weeks old puppy. I quickly came across Labradoodle Savvy on the internet and what a find!
