Here is an interesting video on the Aussiedoodle.
We have a 10 week old Aussiedoodle puppy and he seems to want to jump, bite, growl and bark at my 14 y/o daughter and myself. Not as much with my husband. He seems to be defiant when taking him to potty. We give him plenty of time, no rush, and praise. I know he is wanting to play but his playing comes across as challenging and mean. He hates Crate training… any tip, advice. I’ve read it all! Thank you!
