For puppy training I use a slip leash. If you sign up for obedience classes your instructor will tell you what type of training supplies they use for their type of dog training.
For those of you who need to fly with their puppy, I highly recommend you buy this type of travel carrier. The puppies like the convertible roof and it is nice the side are expandable. Please stay away from purse type carriers or those without a lot of ventilation.
DRIPLESS WATER BOWLS
These puppies grow into shaggy little teddy bears. Their cute fluffy faces hold lots of water after drinking and will drip all over your floor. If you know this is something that will bother you, I have a solution!
I love having a doggie door. Your puppies will come to you doggie door trained and having your own will really make potty training a breeze. As your puppy gets older the dog door will also provide you with freedom. No one has to be home to let your pup out to potty. Keep in mind dog doors aren't only for "doors." We have ours in a wall in our home because that is where we needed it. They make dog doors for sliding glass doors as well. Check out Home Depot or Lowes. That is where we have bought ours.
If you are gone regularly during the day, I recommend that you get some food dispensing toys and feed one meal through the toy. This will keep your pup occupied for an extra hour or so. They have many different types but here is one we have.
I recommend buying two sets of these. One to set up inside your house and one to set up outside with a dog door in between. This is your puppy's safe place when you need to leave for an extended period of time or you are home and just don't want to watch your dog. Each panel is detachable so you can make whatever configuration you need. You might be able to get by with just one set, if you are able to use the walls of your home to build your inside and outside playpen.

Probiotics are good for your dog too. Sprinkle a little bit on your dog's food each day and keep his body flora healthy. This is really good to use after antibiotics or if your pet has a soft stool.
Be sure to brush your labradoodle all the way down to the skin.

Any dog with an ear that folds over like a labradoodle can be prone to ear infections. It is important to check your labradoodle's ears daily and every other week or so give them a good wash. I soak a couple cotton balls, insert wet cotton ball into the ear, and massage. Take those cotton balls out and back away fast. Your pooch is going to shake. Be sure to dry the ear well and keep hair removed.
