    Hi. Zilla and family, congratulations on your dog. I do not know much about the "breed" other than I heard they are good and a "new" concept. I think I saw one on the street the other day. Do they get tall? well, the picture looks cute!

    I guess I asked about the gentle leader because I've seen other dogs with them, and my dog wears one. Maybe she was concerned about the neck?

    Zilla, I know you want to make sure everything goes right with the dog, but I think in the beginning esp since its flying on a plane to a new strange (at first) place, that just to try to establish a bond with the dog is most important as it may be so confused at its surroundings, environment etc. Just to play with the dog, and work on basic obedience skills. Is someone coming with the dog or by itself? Using The gentle leader will likely take time, unless its allready acquainted with one. After a while of the dog settling its nerves, I would introduce it with treats by showing it to the dog, letting him sleep with it, placing it on his snout only then positive reinforcement, praise, and a treat. etc. I have no idea if Labradoodles use one? I know ppl with various dog breeds that use them.

    How big is your pup going to get? Wow, what a big undertaking! You guys can do it. I'm sure we'll all be looking forward to pictures. Talk to you soon. Hey Chad and little one!
