Doodles, a popular breed known for their intelligence, friendliness, and playful attitude, are becoming increasingly popular among dog owners. As a pet parent, it’s important to understand your pet’s behaviors and their intentions. In this blog, we’ll look at common doodle behavior, understand their meaning and provide helpful information to our Doodle Tribe community.

Decoding Tail Wagging:

  • Tail wagging wide and quickly: Excitement, pleasure, and a desire to interact with people or dogs.
  • Slow tail wagging: Caution, uncertainty, or a desire to examine the situation before approaching are all possibilities.

Low, tucked tail: 

This symbol represents dread, anxiety, or subjugation. It is vital in such instances to establish a safe and reassuring environment for your children. To increase confidence, provide reassurance, gradually introduce them to new situations, and consider positive reinforcement training.

Decoding barking:

This is frequently an indicator of excitement, eagerness, or a need for attention. Engage your doodle in play or cerebral stimulation to refocus their energy.

  • Low, continuous growling or barking: This can denote hostility, territoriality, or a warning. Examine the scenario carefully to guarantee the safety of your doodle and everyone else involved.

Exuberant jumping:

This is frequently observed when doodles welcome their owners or visitors. It displays their love and desire to connect. To minimize undesired leaping behavior, teach your doodle alternate greetings, such as sitting or shaking paws.

Gentle pawing:

Frequently represents a desire for attention, love, or a wish to be patted. Respond favorably to strengthen your friendship with your doodle.

Pawing that is persistent and forceful might suggest impatience or a desire for attention. Teach your doodle how to convey their demands in other ways, like sitting peacefully or presenting a toy.

Exploratory chewing: 

This is typical behavior for young doodles as they investigate their surroundings and alleviate teething discomfort. To avoid harmful chewing, provide appropriate chew toys and redirect their focus.

Continuous chewing or nibbling:

This might imply worry, boredom, or an attempt to find consolation. To prevent excessive chewing, provide your doodle with engaging toys, frequent exercise, and a secure location.

Doodle Actions

Instinct Digging:

Doodles naturally tend to dig for a cool resting area or to look for hidden riches. Set up a space in your yard for your doodle to dig freely or channel their enthusiasm to other pursuits such as fetching or puzzle toys.

Submissive behavior: 

When doodles roll onto their backs, displaying their belly, it is generally seen as a show of surrender or an offer for belly rubs. During these conversations, be polite and attentive to your doodle’s cues.
