His ability to learn is impressive, will to practice pertinent and good nature a pleasure for all the family and friends.

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
