Gleneden Doodles are widely noted for their excellent health and superior temperaments and intelligence. It should be no surprise to anyone that they are so often found at the top of their obedience training classes. In addition to being wonderful companion pets they are also prized as therapy and service dogs .

Doodle puppies, like all others, do not come neatly preprogrammed. No, training takes some time, effort, knowledge, and, above all, “consistency” on the part of those trusted with a dog's well being. Sadly but truly, an untrained, undisciplined dog is a misfit that will always reflect poorly on its “Master”. There is no valid excuse for this ever to happen. If one hears someone grumbling that their dog is “wrecking” their house it is not too difficult to determine where the fault rests.


Surely there is a mountain of information available in book stores and on the Internet relative to puppy and dog training, albeit the various techniques espoused seem almost as voluminous as the articles and books themselves. One valuable stop on the Web is GreatPets.com - where reliable training and behavior advice is available. Highly recommended is Pat B. Miller's "Positive Perspectives: Love Your Dog, Train Your Dog". This is a most valuable guide to understanding and training your dog. Also recommended is "Dogs for Dummies" by Gina Spadafori. It contains a wealth of practical information. You may also wish to contact Tom Jeffrey at the Dinky Dog Club (see Availabiliy page) for training information.

Good Luck!!!
