Austra­lian Labra­do­odle Mali in Belgum

Mali is a super dog, with a mis­sion to make his human proud of him that he accom­pli­shes with an easy charm. He has been sha­ring fun and work alike, wor­king to make it hap­pen and taking up new tricks and tips daily — enjoy­ing all the way. His abi­lity to learn is impres­sive, will to prac­tice per­ti­nent and good nature a ple­asure for all the family and friends.

He is a cud­dling bun­dle of love and patience appa­ren­tly gro­wing to a size of a polar bear, always ready to play with his own kind while his treat rema­ins his best friend: his 6 year old Mak.

AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE TYTTI IN FINLAND

Tytti is a great dog!
She is very well lear­ned at sta­ble and her best friend is Pimenta Por­tu­gies water­dog and also old cat. They all are friends and while I’m riding Pimenta comes and takes Tytti with her their home. They sit on the couch and relax till they like to go back to out. Tytti likes a lot swim­ming. At the sta­ble we usu­ally (if it’s warm day) we fist go swim­ming to lake and then we start taking care of Lil­lan (my horse). Tytti has lear­ned from Pimenta very nicely which are the sta­ble lands and they stay close to sta­ble and front yard. I’m very happy about that. Also my other friend have a dog Alma and we and sta­ble owners we all take a look that Tytti is stay­ing close to sta­ble even that it’s quite big area. She is great in that. Also with hor­ses she knows how to be. Before we leave home some­ti­mes I need to take her to sho­wer (same place where hor­ses are washed) and she is stan­ding in cen­tre of this big sho­wer box like hor­ses she is so funny, but she have seen how hor­ses are stan­ding there and she thinks she need to be the same way. :)

At home Tytti is so great. She likes to sleep in a mor­ning it’s not easy to get her out late in eve­ning and early in a mor­ning. :) She is just yawing out loud and stret­ching like cats are usu­ally doing. Also after she has eaten she is lic­king her chest from the white colour.

Tytti and other dogs and chil­dren. Other dogs she loves all of them. She is also very well under­stan­ding how to play with dif­fe­rent dog. Some dogs she is play­ing totally dif­fe­rent and some dogs she is run­ning and having more fun. I think she has fan­ta­stic situ­atio­nal awa­re­ness. She is very quick of under­stan­ding who is more sen­si­tive and who is more brave and she swit­ching her level of energy to same than other has. Chil­dren are the best and our mor­ning short forest visit we pass day­care and she can easily sit 15 minu­tes just looking when chil­dren are play­ing. Some­ti­mes I’m won­de­ring what are these teachers thin­king when we are just stan­ding and looking at them. :) I feel like stal­ker, but Tytti likes to look at them.

Tytti and lazy ear. Now we are in a situ­ation where Tytti is very stub­born. We did not notice this fear period at all or maybe it has not been yet. She is not that inte­re­sted of food so that is not really moti­va­ting her at all out­side, but she found her­self that kind of toy from dog store that I keep that with me when we are tra­ining. That works huh :) at least still.

We have not found out yet suita­ble tra­ining course for us, but we are looking. We have now tra­ined only basic things like:
– Stay (this we are quite good)
– Come and sit
– For­ward (she is good with this as well impor­tant when Lil­lan is wal­king with us)
– No jum­ping toward human (we have hand mark and she sits and then she gets the atten­tion)
– we have few other things as well like in forest eye con­tact and left and right with hands and so
– She is not pul­ling at all so that’s not a pro­blem
– cut­ting nails and bru­shing her coat works well now. Also we have cle­aned her ears from hair. That was not easy at first as she don’t like pain at all.

We have also star­ted to train object squ­are (few toys hiden lit­tle bit fur­ther away and she needs to find those). She is so good with this that I think after few weeks we try to make short track for her. Hide and seek is also what I do almost every day once or twice in the forest. Good way to keep her looking us.

She has also been shop­ping with us in the Hel­sinki city and also with short trips when we are stay­ing at the hotels. She has no pro­blem any­where. Only thing I notice that she is lit­tle bit affair of high pla­ces spe­cially if she can look down thro­ugh class wall etc.

Eve­ry­one who have seen her feels that she is great. Tytti’s doctor said for me alre­ady at first time we met that she has fan­ta­stic head. So healthy-headed dog what she said. Yes, she is scre­aming alre­ady when she sees the vac­cine, but right after she is liking doctors face like say­ing thank’s but no more.

AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE RUSTY IN FINLAND

I am so very glad, that I was cho­sen for Sari and Kimmo to be my new family. I enjoy my life in my new home and I think, that Sari and Kimmo love me a lot.
They try to teach me all kind of things and tricks daily (not too in one go) and I am very quick to learn, can you believe it. One thing I do not like so much; that is when they say to me NO always, when I’m try­ing to eat some­thing nice, you know, smelly nice things which I find out­side on the ground.

We have been prac­ti­cing ear cle­aning and chec­king my teeth, cut some nails (just to prac­tice it) and that was a peace off cake, as they say. We also had a prac­tice sho­wer and I was dried very care­fully with this big towel and I tho­ught it was a play and tried to eat the towel. We have also been vacuum cle­aning and Sari did her hear with the hear­dryer and sur­prise sur­prise, I was alre­ady so very well tra­ined for all these sounds, that I har­dly noti­ced it. We also go for short walks out­side and I am doing really fine with all cars and motor­bi­kes pas­sing by.

I have also met quite a few neigh­bor dogs and close to us and all of them have been very kind to me, but I must say that the high­li­ght was to meet my sister and Pehku and Tahko last week end.

I have alre­ady been at Kimmo’s work for the whole day, as we had a baby­sit­ter pro­blem. It was inte­re­sting and a bit boring, so I slept a lot, tomor­row I’ll visit Sari’s work for the whole day, pro­ba­bly sle­eping there too ;-). Well, to tell the truth, that is not exac­tly so boring, as we go for walks few times per day, meet some new people and new smells out­side and I play with my toys, you know, the best ones which I deman­ded to get with me if they wan­ted me at work.

I must tell, that Sari and Kimmo have been a bit lazy so far leaving me alone at home, but if I under­stood right, the next week end (which is Easter) we will prac­tice this seve­ral times per day and eeeevry day.

I am alre­ady com­for­ta­ble with my har­ness, but I must say, that the first 3–4 days were uncom­for­ta­ble, as I was not so fami­liar to wear the har­ness.
Next week end is pro­ba­bly also prac­ti­cing “how walk nicely on the leash”.

I’ve been dri­ving in the car (with my safety belts on) nearly every day now and I must say, that I am a pro­fes­sio­nal in this… No pro­blems at all and I nearly like it. It so nice on the back seat, that I fall asleep nearly imme­dia­tely, when we start the car trip, and I have, just in case, my che­wing bone with me and my toy dog of course… I love him.
Quite a few times Kimmo has left me alone in the car for 5 minu­tes and ones for even 15 minu­tes (I think he was spy­ing me some­where), but that was no pro­blem, as I got a nice smelly che­wing bone, so I mana­ged just fine.

Well, I’m feeling a bit tired now and go to sleep

AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE NELLI IN FINLAND

We would like to thank you to cho­ose Nelli for us.
Nelli has just per­fect nature, same time being active and calm, loving all the people and dogs. She is “easy” dog.
All our friends and neibo­urgs also say that she has really good nature.
During sum­mer I have tough her to stay in our sum­mer cot­tage gar­den (gar­den without fence) and come to me when I use whi­stle. She has done incre­di­bly good job!!

She also loves all the ber­ries: blu­eber­ries, ras­ber­ries and stra­ber­ries.
She picks them self from the forest or waits that Oona and Aino will do the job for her:-)

Nelli is now nine mon­ths old. We got her last April at the age of 12 weeks. At the first days she was just so calm. I think tra­vel­ling and family change took most of the acti­vity from her. That chan­ged fast Now Nelli is really active and loves to play ball with our chil­dren and tease lit­tle bit birds. We took puppy tra­ining during the spring and Nelli is fast lear­ner. I think that Nelli and I have good con­nec­tion toge­ther. During the sum­mer holi­days we will con­ti­nue with basic training.

Nelli loves all the people and dogs. She always wants to get fami­liar with eve­ry­body. Spe­cially Nelli loves our chil­dren and they of course love her. Nelli always tries to find highest hill or stone to climb upon. Her favo­rite place in our gar­den is the rock where she can see the whole area. Nelli loves to kiss and hug all people and play with other dogs and she joins to be out­side in our sum­mer cot­tage, where she can join finish coun­try side and all the ani­mals near her. She really loves “sand sur­fing”. Clim­bing to the high sand hill and come down sur­fing. Let see what she likes about finish win­ter…
Nelli have great nature loving all the people and dogs, being active, but same time calm.
Nelli is per­fect dog for our family
