New Dog poodabador retrevier

Postby mr bill » Wed Oct 24, 2012 2:54 pm

Hi every one

I have a few questions on our new pup. He is almost 5 months old and I was going to have him neutered and have his tail docked in a couple weeks. I have been reading that I might want to wait until 2 years old for the dog to reach full mucle structure before neutering. The tail needs to go as it will end up with every weed or cockleburry stuck to it and if it gets real bushy it could prevent my dog from swiming, especially if it ices up.

What do you all think.

Thanks
Bill

Not so fast!

It might actually be a Nova Scotia Poodabador Duck Troller.

He is pretty smart. We walk every day and on the leash he will heal, sit and stay. Off the leash he spaces out and will occasionally go the wrong direction. He fetches off and on. Rex is still a bit timid and I have never heard him bark yet. I have had him for almost a month.

Im not sure. His coat is more like wavey hair and so far he seems to get stuff stuck to his tail and ears more than anywhere else. We have been walking the river trails and he does like to watch ducks but doesnt get really excited. Just sits there and watches.

Women own labradoddles and men have poodabador retrievers, lol. :biggrin: YUp its what the breeder called a multi gen labradoodle. So its 70 % poodle and 30% lab and 100% muttley.

So whats the opinion on tail docking and nuetering ?

Oh...I would definitely neuter. Why dock the tail when the whole dog is going to collect burrs and get waterlogged? There IS A REASON for the Poodle cut.

That would be a rare breed. But I admit - Poodabador does sound more manly.

Truth be told, I don't feel like a man even attempting to pronounce "poodabador", but to each his own. It is my understanding that the breeds that have a docked tail as their standard is because of the propensity for tail injury while hunting in the uplands. There are quite a few schools of thought out there about whether or not one should spay / neuter. My personal opinion is if it isn't a breeding dog then I'd have him "fixed."

Docking a tail is nothing when the pup's only a couple days old, but it's a serious surgery at this point, and I'd not do it.

That's made up. I couldn't find it in the 'Working Retriever' descriptions. It's a Poodabador. But funny as these cross bred dogs keep getting different names for some reason. Learned here you can't call a Weimador a Weimador. It's a Labaraner. :lol3:

Obviously one of the primary reasons I've always had to own 'full bloods' is because I'm not sophisticated enough to properly ariculate the names of these designer breeds.

YUP, I made it up and I R sticking to it. :thumbsup:

Anyway, I have scheduled in the surgery for both tail and nuts, but I might hold off on the nuts for a while.

I'm not going to try and talk you out of it but I still don't understand why you feel the need to dock the tail?

No way I would have a hunting dog nutered especially before one year of age. I would not waste my money or put the dog through the stress of having his tail and nuts cut off.

On a serious note, I definitely think you should neuter yourself.
