Welcome to Our Puppy Blog!

Welcome to our blog! I am a small hobby breeder of Schnoodle puppies. My Schnoodles are a cross of the White Schnauzer with a Red Poodle. These dogs do not shed, are great for allergy sufferers, are friendly and easily trained.

We have 4 breeding females and sell our puppies face to face as required by APHIS rules for hobby breeders.

Our breeding dogs are from purebred Akc lines and the Schnoodle puppies are registered with ICA (the registry for Designer breed dogs.)

They will be vet checked, have their first set of shots, and be Ugodog Puppy Toilet Trained. But this is just the beginning! Read through our posts to see the special care and attention we give our litter. You will enjoy watching our Growing Puppies!

We sell our puppies through our Waiting list. We do not post them on the blog for purchase. If you wish to be contacted with updates on the next litter email me at GrowingPuppies@gmail.com

Update: We are so excited for our Spring litters that are arriving in June. Now is a great time to get on the Waiting list.

2 Years old! Teddy Webster Update

Hey Mary,

I have been meaning to send this update for a while....

Teddy Webster is a healthy 22 lbs at his 2 yr checkup.  The vet said that he is not overweight just seems to have developed a very broad chest which I think adds to his weight.  But when you consider that he was one of the smaller puppies, this sort of goes to show that you can only predict!  I went back in your blog to see birth weights and couldn't find them, but you did say in one post that Teddy was the smallest in the litter...and that the top of the range should be around 20 lbs.
Webster's New Haircut

Webster has been a real joy to have around, he has become a favorite of some people in the neighborhood due to his insistence on saying hello.  He won't move until he has greeted them.   He even attended a neighborhood dinner party for 20 and behaved!  He is also very smart, curious and vocal.  He has been very easy to train and we have kept the liter box available which was wonderful this winter.  He only used it once or twice, both times when the snow was taller than he was.  He also learned to wear balloon booties so his paws were protected from ice balls and all of the salt our neighborhood insists on using.  He was quite a sight with his red balloon booties and green jacket in the nose high snow.

Webster finished level one obedience and agility.  He got quite bored with the circle style of obedience training (but passed despite that!). On the other hand, he would do just about anything to get to run the agility course.  He also is a very good watchdog.  He makes sure that everyone knows he is protecting us from toads, cats, birds, delivery people and golfers.  We are working on that.  He does not really like cuddling and also does not like to sleep on the bed.  He prefers his space, which is the master bathroom.  But he does like playing on the bed, especially 'catch the hand under the covers', and is always nearby one of us.

We did have an unfortunate incident last Fall that set back his training and has made him quite timid and at the same time protective.  A large dog, whose owner couldn't control him, came after the two of us on a walk and terrified both of us.  Webster went after the dog, but the dog ended up cornering us before his owner could get him under control.  Luckily no injuries...but a big wariness around other dogs.  As a result, Webster now lets everyone he does not recognize, know he won't take any grief.  My friendly little boy grew up.  We are working on some training to help him know how to be polite to strangers and not be afraid.  It is taking a while, but seems to be slowly working.

I have attached a collage of recent pictures and one of him with his new haircut.  His color lightens considerably when he has short hair and his undercoat is very soft.  We get so many comments on his color and cuteness!

Webster is a real joy to have around and we thank you for that.  Hope this finds you all well and happy.

Teddy Webster at 8 weeks with Susan and Rob

Thank you so much, Susan for taking the time to updtate us on Webster's progress!  I love his haircut!  It is so adorable....a real Teddy Bear face!

I am so glad that Webster's training is going so well.  I am so sorry to hear about the incident with the mean dog! Sometimes bad things happen despite our best efforts.  But this is a good reminder to us all to always do our best to be aware of  what dogs are in our vicinity, so we can be avoid unruly dogs whenever possible. Thank  goodness, there were no injuries!  I am so glad you are both OK.

Thanks again!  And best wishes to you all!
