Testimonial Wednesday?

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

We’ve received an update on Presley who is just too cute not to share!

“We brought home our puppy about a month ago and I already feel the need to tell about how amazing it has been! First of all, we felt so comfortable before picking up Presley because of how helpful the women at Manor Lake were. They sent plenty of pictures and answered all of our questions about our puppy-to-be. I was in love the instant I laid eyes on Presley and he was everything they had described him to be and more.

Since then I have just come to adore our new furry friend. He is so smart, training has been a breeze so far. He has a personality that almost resembles a human, and picks up on everything already. Presley is full of energy, but not to the amount that could drive someone crazy. He is almost four months old and I am still waiting for the period where most dog owners never wish to return to!

Kim and Charrice really know how to run an ethical business and have shown me that their customers’ happiness is their priority. I get asked almost every day where I got my dog and I always get Manor Lake’s name out there.

I could not be happier with my dog, he is already my most loyal companion and he is such a light in my life. His personality is one of a kind and I think that is so important for dog owners. I wouldn’t change a thing from this whole process for the world!”

Checking in with Manor Lake Chief Brody

Monday, August 25th, 2014

We heard from Lisa and her family in regards to her lovely Manor Lake Australian Labradoodle and we just had to share! We’re so excited to hear from our families and to hear such wonderful things about our dogs. I tell many people, you just have to have one to understand. But, Lisa does a pretty good job summing it up! Thank you so much Lisa and all your family for making Brody a part of your lovely family.

Hi Kim-

 

Hope all is well.

 

It’s been over 2 months now since Brody joined our family and we can’t tell you how much we love him. He’s the best dog ever!!

 

He is now 5 months old and about 30 pounds. He was groomed for the first time 2 weeks ago and is absolutely gorgeous. Wherever we go we are asked what kind of dog is he and then told he is SO cute. And SO calm, especially for a puppy. His color is beautiful. Shall I go on?! If I had a dollar for each time I heard these things I’d be a billionaire!

 

And boy is he smart! He knows his basic commands…sit, stay, down, come, no, heel, leave it, and we’re working on heel. He was completely house trained only 2 weeks after we got him, at only 14 weeks old. He absolutely hated the crate overnight so after about 3 weeks, we stopped using it because he was house trained anyway. He slept on our bed for about a week but then decided he was more comfortable on the floor so that’s where he chooses to sleep each night. During the day when left alone for a couple hours, he has been gated in the kitchen but jumped the gate earlier this week. Because he was a good boy and didn’t cause any harm, we decided to keep him loose in the house for the past few days and he’s been totally fine. We just can’t believe our 5 month old puppy is SO well-behaved!

 

We’ve been on vacation (here) for almost 2 weeks now. We are always outside here and Brody is with us almost always. We’ve taken him hiking several times this summer and after the first couple of times, we decided to try him off-leash, so he could have more freedom. As hoped, he stuck by our side the entire time, even when other dogs were encountered. He absolutely loves being outside, whether we’re hiking, biking, walking, kayaking or just hanging out in the backyard. He’s still timid when it comes to swimming but he’s warming up to it.

 

Brody is the perfect dog and we can’t thank you enough!! We love him SO much, especially our daughter Ella. She’s 5 years old so she and Brody are perfect companions, always running and playing together. They tire eachother out everyday!

 

Attached are some recent pics of Brody. We’ve recommended Manor Lake to so many people who’ve asked about him because we truly believe he’s the best dog, and exactly as you described him. We feel incredibly lucky! And did I mention Brody is my husband’s first dog ever?!

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

Love,

Lisa, Dave, Ella & Chief Brody

Australian Labradoodle Sizes

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Santana.M.848.03.30.15-3Many people ask me questions about the size of our Australian Labradoodle dogs and puppies. Which size of Australian Labradoodle do I recommend? Which Australian Labradoodle sizes do I breed? What is the Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA) breed standard? How big will my Australian labradoodle puppy get?

At Manor Lake, we breed 3 sizes of Australian Labradoodles, miniature, medium and standard:

Miniature: 14″ to 16″ at the shoulders or “withers” and 16 to 30 pounds

Medium: 17″ to 20″ at the shoulders or “withers” and 30 to 45 pounds

Standard: 21″ to 24″ at the shoulders or “withers and 45 to 65 pounds

When someone asks for a “small medium” Australian Labradoodle – what does this mean? It simply means that within the “medium” category that this would be on the smaller end, around the 30 pound mark. I also get requests for the “large miniature” size – what size is this? The large miniature size would be 25 to 30 pounds and fall right in the middle of the ALAA’s designation of miniature and medium.

What is the best size for an Australian labradoodle dog? I get asked this question often. There is no “best” size of Australian Labradoodle. I advise my clients to adopt the size that they think will work best with their family. A few questions to consider:

  • Do you want the dog to easily be able to jump in and out of their car on their own, or do you want to lift it in and out?
  • Do you eventually plan to take their Australian Labradoodle dog running, hiking, etc? If so, how far?
  • What type of swimming, if any, do you plan to do with their Australian Labradoodle Dog?
  • What size of yard will you have?
  • Will your Australian Labradoodle dog travel with you?
  • Do they want to be able to pick up your Australian Labradoodle adult dog?

These are just a few of the questions I ask my clients if they are unsure about the size of Australian Labradoodle to purchase. If you’re still not quite sure what to expect in the different sizes I would recommend looking up the nearest Doodle Romp in your area to attend. Families go to socialize with their dogs and are usually quite happy to talk about their dog, including weight!

Snuggle Puppy

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Why Manor Lake Likes The Snuggle Puppy

SnugglePuppies™, with a new and improved heartbeat, will capture your pet’s heart! All ages of animals love our adorable SnugglePuppie™ because they connect with the “real feel” heart beat and gentle warmth. Remember that children and seniors love to cuddle them too! Heart beat with batteries and two types of heat included.

We like Snuggle puppies at Manor Lake because they can make our Australian Labradoodle puppies more comfortable when they are transitioning to their new homes.  The young puppies really like the heart beat and warmth of the SnugglePuppy, it reminds them of their litter mates and mother and comforts them through this separation.

We carry the Snuggle Puppy in our Manor Lake Dog Boutique, check them out!
