Not until Jaxson did I witness/experience first hand the jumping Goldendoodle phenominum.
I’d heard many stories about it – but Harley nor Leo did it.
Not sure where this trait/habit comes from but it’s pretty popular with this breed.
Jax is that doodle who jumps at whim. There’s no trigger, no prompting – he just jumps!
He will jump to say hello, or see you later. He loves to jump for whatever is in your hand – whether it’s his or yours, treats or toys, sometimes it could be a hat, paper or nothing…
It’s like his inner “rabbit” like behavior comes out. I’m not alone. It’s common Doodle parent talk.
I know what you’re thinking?
Just teach him not to jump!
I was guilty of that same thought – until I met Jaxson. To me, I see it as part of his make-up – who he is. On any given day, he will walk – walk – trot (like a skip) then JUMP!
If I ask him to get down, he will, but shortly there after, sometime later… #jumpingJaxDoodle
WHAT DO I DO? –
I laugh! Because he’s playing and I truly don’t believe he could stop if HE wanted to!
I am curious to see – as he ages if this will subside. I searched the internet but didn’t find many articles.
I’ve seen many photos/videos of Goldendoodles “counter surfing” – haven’t had to deal with that. #thankthedoodle
