Forever Homes-Norman (Brogan)

on July 15, 2012

This is a letter from one of our clients who received one of the puppies from Canadoodle Sable’s Kodiak and our very own Lady Fiona Clancy’s litter. Norman arrived at their house on June 20, 2012, and they absolutely fell in love with him. Norman currently has a siblings available-Aiden. Check out our “Available Puppies” page for more details. Below the letter are some pictures of Norman from week 1 at our home to week 9 at their home. We are so proud of how well Norman is doing and what a testament he is to this amazing breed. We are so happy to hear about Norman’s speciality training and what an impact he has made.

Dear Clancy Family,
This is a just a note to let you know how well Norman is adjusting to his new home! If dogs could talk, we are pretty sure he’d tell you hit he the “adoption” jackpot. He gets more attention, has more toys, blankies, and treats than most babies…I am just sure of it!
Words really cannot express our sheer joy with Norman. It’s really odd to even hear myself say this because my husband and I are not “dog” people, in fact, we are not “animal” people. For 15 years, we’ve been adamant in telling our children that they could not have a dog. Mainly because my husband has allergies and I am a neat freak about our house. These two major obstacles have become non-issues since we have acquired Norman. He is hypoallergenic and non-shedding! What a bonus!
We decided to give in to children’s request after finding your ClancyAussieDoodle page on Facebook and speaking with you. We loved how you made yourself available to answer all of questions and concerns over the course of several months. We were impressed at how seriously you took your job as a breeder and how many questions you asked us to ensure that Norman would be a good fit with our family.  It is beyond obvious that you love what you do…your passion is evident.
You see, we don’t even consider Norman a dog…lol…he has so many human characteristics, it’s uncanny. 🙂 He loves people…the more he’s around…the happier he is. He doesn’t bark(as long as he is not alone), he is well on his way to being potty trained (at just 10 weeks old) and he’s doing amazing in obedience school. In fact, our trainer, has repeatedly commented on how well-behaved Norman is. He mentioned that he’s never seen a Doodle quite like Norman – he said all the Doodles he’s ever worked with were happy but very hyper and had trouble obeying rules. We find just the opposite with Norman. He adapts well to all environments and clearly understands the word, “no”.
He’s so much fun and easy to train! We have taught him how to ring a bell when he needs to potty, how to stand jump up on a platform for a treat, how to stand on his back two legs and hop for a treat, and jump through a hula hoop! We are now working on teaching him how to walk on a balance beam…no joke! He loves being active and has no problems keeping up on our daily family walk of 2-3 miles!
Our plans are to continue obedience school for the next 6-12 months so we can get him certified as an AKC  STAR puppy, then on to hopefully earning the AKC Good Canine  Award.  Finally, we hope to get him certified as a therapy dog so we can take him to visit sick kids and the elderly at nursing homes and assisted living facilities! Our trainer says, Norman is well on his way to achieving all these goals!
Thank you from the bottom of our happy hearts! Norman has been such a blessing to our family. He is amazing because you are an amazing breeder. Please do not hesitate to give our name as a referral!
Most Sincerely,
Michelle and Joel Tjelmeland
Owners of, and founders of 217-498-1073
