Tips for picking up your puppy
-If you take your puppy out of their crate, please attach a leash. Your puppy is not leash trained and attaching the leash is a safety measure.
-Hold and comfort your puppy – he/she may be a little scared.
-Once you are back in the car, your puppy can sit on a lap or ride in the crate.
-Do take your Australian Labradoodle puppy home for quiet time with you and your family for the first 24 hours.
-Keep in mind that your puppy is not fully vaccinated until it has had at least 3 puppy shots. Dog parks and pet stores are not a good idea until your puppy is fully vaccinated.
Helpful hints on house training
Your Australian Labradoodle puppy has been trained to a potty pad when indoors and goes outside in groups on grassy areas when they have reached the appropriate age and when weather permits. We recommend taking your new puppy out to go potty every 30 – 45 minutes for the first two weeks.
Taking away food and water between 5 – 6 pm will also be very helpful and allow puppy to empty his/her bladder prior to bedtime recommended 10 – 11 pm if you are putting your puppy in a crate for the night. There is no need to take your puppy out to go potty in the middle of the night, nor do we recommend it. Your puppy should be just fine at this point to sleep and make it through the night. In the morning between 6 – 7 am you will pick up your puppy and carry them outside for their morning potty.
Remember, when your Australian Labradoodle puppy eats, wait almost half an hour, and they will need to go potty either on the potty pad or outside with the command “go potty”. Consistency and maintaining a routine is key when potty training your new Australian Labradoodle puppy!
