Postive Training for Your Australian Labradoodle Puppy


I recommend positive training for all our Australian Labradoodle puppies and think that the best way to train one of our Australian Labradoodle puppies is to use lots of encouragement, praise and rewards (small puppy treats – I like Wellness Well Bites) with your training.  You can start training your Australian Labradoodle puppy as early as 9 weeks.  Our Australian Labradoodle puppies are eager to please and make great training candidates.  With their sharp minds and keen interest, you will find they learn rapidly.  You will want to make sure that you set your Australian Labradoodle puppy up to succeed by concentrating on developing desirable habits and also preventing undesirable behavior from the start.  It is much easier to start your Australian Labradoodle puppy on the right track than to go back later and try and correct problem behaviors.  Start with easy, basic commands – my favorite to start with is the “sit” command.  Keeping your training sessions short, fun and consistent is the key – you may want to start with 4 to 5 minutes with lots of repetition and praising each small success.  If your puppy learns to love his/her training sessions, you will find his/her confidence growing with each session.  Do not worry about small setbacks or mistakes, your puppy is young and immature and will certainly have a few slip ups.  Remember to be kind, caring and patient and you will be rewarded with a special bond for life.
