  2. Disincentivizing play biting?

    Cockapoo Training and Bonding
    Our cockapoo puppy, Rosie, just turned 5 months this past week. One problem we've been having consistently is her desire to bite us during play (usually on the hands, arms, or torso). It isn't accidental biting (i.e. accidentally grabbing us when lunging for a toy)--she targets our appendages...

    Cockapoo Training and Bonding
    Hi all, have had my adorable puppy Atticus almost a week! The first 3 days he had NO accidents in the house....I was shocked and delighted!

  8. Hello, I'm Alex

    Introductions
    Hello! I'm trying to get everything ready before my Cockapoo Puppy arrives sept. 10th! I've read that Crate Training is the way to go! However, due to how far away my home is to work it would be impossible to let him out of his crate every 2-3 hours, especially as a puppy. Therefore, I'm...

    So my boy has reached 10 months this March and he has gone nuts! He's chewing on everything and has unlimited energy!

    The Puppy Place
    Well we reached the magic day of Poppy being allowed out for a walk. It took ages just to walk down the road as there were so many new smells but Poppy seemed very happy.
