Seattle Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Doodle Romps Monthly Meetup

  • June 14, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Meetup begins at 11:00 AM in Magnuson Park, in the area behind the small dog enclosure. When entering through the main entrance, walk across the bridge and turn right. We often go down to the water after playing on the field--especially if it is a hot day. Due to other obligations (or just sleeping in), the 11:00 AM group may be quite small. Please don't despair--We generally have 18-35 dogs over the course of the next hour and a half--just not all at once. If you arrive a little late and we're not on the field, we're probably down by the water. To get there, go back past the bridge (don't cross it) and follow the trail for about 1/2 mile down to the water.

    We had a great time. Farley was beside himself with happiness which shows in the video I will try to post! Farley and Zeke had fun swimming after and were completely wiped out when we got home. Great romp!

    Casey and I will have to miss this one as he's just started some new classes, including one on Saturday. Wishing everyone a great romp! See you next month!

    I have one of each. I would say Farley (the one in doggles) is independent/secure/confident and Zeke (the one leaning on his buddy) is co-dependent/insecure. We will be at the romp on the 14th if you would like to meet them.

    I appreciate both of your comments! We've decided to take the plunge and hope to meet both of you and your doodles at a Doodle Romp later this year!

    I recently spoke with a breeder of Labradoodles who characterized one of the puppies as being "independent". What does this mean and is this a red flag? Is this a nice way of saying that this puppy won't be as interested in being part of a family? The puppy showed other signs of being a loving dog. We held her in our lap on her back and she was happy. Please tell us your thoughts. Thank you.

      We've had the luck of adopting two Labradoodles. The first one's owner was with her 24/7 and when we adopted her at 7 years she was very very close to us. Only downside was when we'd go out to mow the lawn and she'd bark and want to be outside with us. I'd say our current one is more "independent".­ We got her at 4 months. She'll happily go off and take a nap in the other room for hours and has no problem with us leaving her for a bit. But she also loves to cuddle for long stretches and we play catch all the time. So from our perspective a little "independence"­ is fine!

      As a professional dog trainer I don't see being independent as a negative. I would although ask the breeder what she means by independent. Sometimes independent means they're not that sociable with other dogs but they normally love people. The puppy may seem aloof. I would much rather have an independent puppy then a "needy" puppy. But even an independent puppy if they're coddled and spoiled can become needy. Again I think it's a good idea to ask the breeder what she means by independent.
