The reason for behavioral problems in dogs is often because they are bored or have excess energy that they haven't exercised off. You can prevent this from happening in your dog by providing daily activities that keep your pet engaged. Your Miniature Labradoodle comes from a history of working dogs so don't be afraid to put your little dynamo to work. A combination of the Miniature Poodle and Labrador Retriever, they are very intelligent dogs, and if trained with positivity, they can learn new tricks very fast. Train them to pick up toys, collect your shoes, carry the mail, or even bring in the firewood if you have a wood burning stove. They can be taught to wear a backpack and can help you cart your stuff around. Have some useful things on hand like a ball or lengths of rope tied to a tree, or even make a dedicated digging pit for them. Keep your dog busy and they will flourish!
Your dog loves to be part of whatever you or your family is doing. Whether it's helping you to put out the rubbish, or just clean the car, they don't care - to a dog, it's fun stuff! If you have trained them to respond to certain commands such as come, sit, and stay, it certainly helps when you go out to activities in the community - everyone loves to see a well-behaved dog. If your dog's manners are a bit lacking, work on that first and then you can be confident to include them in family outings. Many community places welcome dogs and their owners, so there is no excuse to leave your Miniature Labradoodle at home. They will love all the new smells, the people and the dogs they meet. And if they are rewarded for good behavior and have your approval - then your little Labadab will be in heaven.
